Errand Girl

I got offered an errend to pick up faction loot tonight.

My CEO, a firm beliver in le lazy and da slacker mode of lifestyle was not in the mood to renew the contracts on stuff that wans't selling. He decided to drop it all in the corp hanger and asked me if I'd go and nab them.

For some reason I like hauling. Its oddly productive. Really, its the same reason I like mining. So, I jumped to it.

The two runs ment a trip to Jita and a trip to Rens. Also, along the way he decided he wanted some Medium Trimark Armor Pump II.

On the way to Jita I was side tracked to help chase down a small gang. We chased them through three systems and around the third for about twenty minutes. They were a Hawk, Hurricane, Rupture, and Drake. They *ran* from us. A Drake and a Rupture. Now, truth was we had a Machariel to drop on them on the other side of the gate depending on how they engaged. However, we couldn't get them to engage on a Drake and a Rupture. It was very sad.

After screwing around with that, they left system. We bailed and I continued my run to Jita. In Jita I went to pick up the rigs (the Trimark armor pumps) and discovered that they cost 67mil each. It made my eyes cross. Spending isk does that. Earlier, someone asked me why I was hoarding isk. I said it is simply because I want to be filthy space rich. One of my corpies reminded me that if I fell into a pond I'd drown under the weight of my current wallet.

400mil later, I was headed out of Jita and back to my high sec base. I decided to decrease my risk by unloading there before I went to Rens for the second half of the load. At Rens I accepted the second contract and headed back to consolidate and head to low sec.

Monday night is a good night for this type of thing. This is how I wandered into low sec.

Somewhat blinded by the glimmering and sparkle emitting from my cargo hold, I managed to make it to the corp base and unload everything. My CEO loves me enough to reimburse me for the trimarks before I even handed them over. I am glad I did turn into de explosion on the way to drop them off.

  1. Holy shit officer stuff.

  2. Hoarding money is probably more productive then my method of buying whatever strikes my fancy that day and then just letting it collect dust later in a forgotten hangar.

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …
