I'm pretty tickled with myself

I've taken up exploration in recent days. I can't call it weeks because it is not.

The first site I found, I got my ass handed to me. It was a very hard site and me, being the stubborn creature that I am attempted to do it. I failed.

I got the great idea to kite the NPCs away from the cans and attempt to hack them.

Much to my delight, it worked.

The first can revealed two skill books. I didn't check on them immedately but later, I did to the tune of 100 mil isk in skillbooks. One was Drug Manufcaturing. The second was Neurotoxicology.

Yay me.

Second site found Nanite Control and Neutrotoxin Recovery as well as Standard Sooth Sayer Booster Reaction.

There are random datacores that I will just shove into a container for a while. Maybe I can dump them as a lot in Jita eventually.

Later that afternoon I wandered to another system a few jumps away and proceeded to hunt down another 3 sites each with data cores and smaller stuff plus a mag site full of salvage with a few t2 salvage bits. Another jump over led me to a Magnetometric site and more salvage. I wound up having to use all of my exploration tools through all of the sites and I've developed a lovely kiting method to deal with NPCs to big for me to shoot.

I'm pleased with my haul. All told I made about 200 mil. If I had sold the one skill book on the market that would have been 450mil. I also have 95mil in buy orders sitting on the market so really I made about 300 mil (once the items sell). I've not made that much in one day before on my own. They are not the sites that drop the type A things that cost a bil isk a pop, but I don't think its that bad for me, just after my 4th month.

I am very excited. I also harvested some gas yesterday. That 15 or 20 minutes of gas harvesting while I was getting ready for work netted about 3mil isk.

The biggest question is what ship to use to do these sites. It has been suggested that I get a cynabal but I'm not sure that I want to start working with a 200mil isk ship (for just the hull) quite yet.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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