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.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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. …

Have you done your Eve Vegas Survey?

I did attend Eve Vegas to the shock of many. I'd already paid for it and allotted the time. It seemed that I should go.


I went to the Grand Canyon and Hoover as well. This is not the space to discuss those amazing places or my new Camera.

Eve Vegas was a bit harder for me to go to then I expected. I've detached from Eve for the most part these past months. It is very easy to be angry, frustrated, and bitter about the past that I lived on. The game, its development, and the players move on while I find myself emotionally stuck. That emotional stickiness does not need to be given to everyone else. Part of experiencing it was shielding people from it. But, as I accepted my items and stared down the poor gentleman that tried to put a wristband around my wrist, I realized that I wasn't in as good of a place as I had hoped to be.

That is where the Survey comes in. There are a few things that I could say and did say. A few of the questions made me want to say a bit more.

One was …

Your ideal roadmap

To try to be a bit more interesting then blogging yet another daily list of summit meetings, how about a question?

In the producer session, as we try to figure out how to fix and improve our communication with teams and how we figure out who should be gone to for features and changes, we discussed the road map.

We discussed what 'our' ideal roadmap would be. This breaks down into the individual roadmaps for each member of the CSM. After all, we are individiuals and we have different dreams for Eve. We have different goals and features that we want to move forward or go back to.

How close are we to what CCP is looking at and planning? We discussed their safety mesures to weigh the value of features. What will this feature do for Eve? It is not enough to have an ideal road map of things you want. Those things have to have value and that value needs to be enough to dedicate the time to the feature.

Do you have an ideal roadmap? A path for Eve to head in the next year or two once …
