The pewpew

To my amusement, thanks to my POS whoring I bounced up second on the killboard with almost a hundred kills for the month. I will be the first to announce/admit that 69 of the 97 currently listed of those are POS related.

Beyond that, we haven't been doing to badly. I shipped up into the hurricane finally. Only to find out that I couldn't fit some random things. I spazed a bit and realized that I couldn't fit my T2 neuts. A day and a half of training and that was corrected. Then I needed my ewar drones. Well I needed drones 5 to use the drones. What I didn't realize was that I needed Electronic Warefare 4 to inject the skillbook. Ahhh, thing after thing after thing after thing. This is why people get intimidated by Eve's skill program.

The pewpew went very well over the weekend.

We started with a little gatecamp in null. This was different then one in low sec because we can have someone with the mobile bubble. This puts me on the side of using the bubble to pewpew people. They are helpless and their pods are trapped when they land in them. I can't say I enjoy using bubbles because I don't. However, its a valid and highly used game mechanism and one I need to get over my personal distaste for.

Eve often challanges the views of honor and such that we are taught to function in society by removing them from our gameplay and handing us tools to use. Do you play the game or play by your personal moral code that you use for real living? It is part of the learning curve of the game in its own way.

I had more thoughts but I was side tracked by someone posting a bounty on me. It is only for 5k but I'm so amused I can't finish the rest of the thoughts that I had.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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