Haulers can't pewpew?

I managed to undock in the wrong ship and make it to the site I was going to do. I went to lock on an NPC and shoot it when I realized that I was in my hauler and had no gun or any pewpew capabilities.

*sigh*

I was punished for the huge attention lapse. The site despawned while I warped out and came back to it. Poor me.

Later, I found another Radar and a Mag site as well. While I had almost finished the Radar one of the larger more vicious PvP corps jumped into system. Because I was watching my dscan I was able to catch their scout, who was a cloaky falcon right before they came in. Once they decided to hang around for a bit I decided to pull my drones and leave my site. I had pulled one object out of it so the entire site was not a loss. Thankfully, when I came back it was still there and I managed to crack a few more goodies out of the cans. All told, it is about 20 mil worth of stuff for the hour it took me to find and pull it. Not bad. It'd be faster if I was better at killing the rats. I also keep finding angel chemical labs but I cant tank them. Its frustrating.

The second site was meh. At least there was stuff in it. As I finished it up, said corp came back through the system. I finished and docked. I need to go to work and I'm just not in the mood to play with them.

To top off my day, the contract I had up for the goodies dropped by the faction spawn the other day sold. 165mil for zero effort on my part. It was not even a large rat that dropped the shiny bit of shiny.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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

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…
