The good pewpew

Yesterday evening, when I logged on I asked for a better day. My shitty work weekend had cumulated in my losing my myrm and yet *another* covops ship along with two sites worth of salvage. (I'm still sad over that).

I will be losing covops ships for another 6 weeks or so while I finish skilling into a T3 to replace it.

So, I logged in and I was asked to run a bunch of helium isotopes to a system up in Gallente space so that an alliance mate could make some stront and jump his new Revelation down to where we live. I did the buy order and made the 20 jumps for him because I am a ridiculously nice person sometimes.

With that done, and my hold full of the reshipment needs for my exploded ships, I headed back down to low sec. My mood was okay. I was not thrilled due to the earlier explosions but I felt like I was handling it well. I was irritated at myself for my own lapse.

Once I was back, I was not finding a lot. I landed and one of my corpmates has his eyes on a small gang of flashes crusing through the system in a scorpion, tempest, hurricane, and something else that I don't remember at the moment.

The alliance was scattered around the general area doing our thing. Once he had good site on the gang and the direction they were in we all started rolling towards him. This is one of the interesting things about an area. We are not travelling in a gang but we respond to someone having their eyes out and drop what we are doing to form up for the pewpew.

We got people into the systems on either side and someone managed to land on them and drop some points. Three or four of us dropped on the gang. Our initial point was a t3 I believe and he was able to get away. We locked down the scorpion and took him down, followed by the hurricane.

The tempest managed to burn out of point range and escape to the next system. However, he was in a stationless system. Most of us rolled out and sat on the gates and we waited.

My corpie tried to scan him down while he bounced around. After a few minutes he ran for a gate. It happened to be the gate that I had been assigned to. I followed him through and landed point. Also, much to his despair there was a Machariel and a Tengu on the other side. He was pointed, I managed to overheat my MWD to stay up with him and hold point and he was popped. He was not happy with us and made that known in local while he attempted to give a 'gf' (good fight) in local. My corpie lands in the system right after he pops. Then, to make things special, the pod from the scorpion comes through the gate. He curses us in local and then logs off.

The problem is he is still GCC. This mean that his pod is hold in the system for 15 minutes until his GCC clears. We dropped probes and had him located in about two minutes. To just make the kill mail that ridiculous, every involved in the other three kills camne and put a point on him so they'd be on the kill mail. Then he was one shotted. He will be very unhappy and surprised when he wakes up at his clone location.

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 …
