No thank you Mr Trap, not interested this morning

I scanned down a 4/10 this morning in a neighboring system. Space was pretty quiet so I decided to go and do it. It meant a reship on my side to my armor cane and an undocking of my oni to keep me repped. Yes, I am terrible at PvE but at least I get it done.

It worked out beautifully. The only time it got a bit warn was when I was waiting to take all the aggro in the second room.

Reps me! Reps me!

I read lots of bullshit from people who do not live, nor even dip their toes into low sec and null sec about what a risk free environment we have.

When I was in the second room, a member of a corp that is unhappy with us passed through in their pod. I decided to pick up the pace and went for the faction rat who would drop my loot. If that corp was up and awake, it would not take them that long to find me. My scout was sitting at the gate, cloaked. I try to be careful. Inattention has already gotten me killed stupidly, recently.

I scooped the loot and found out that Eve has forgiven me for the not very brilliant drops recently. I scored a Gistum C-Type Adaptive Invulnerability Field which is about 470mil from what I see. *love* I'll offer it up to my corp mates before I take it off to sell it. This is the most expensive shiny I have popped all by myself so far I think.

As I was looting and salving the wreck (love T2 salvage as well) the same pod from the same corp came back in with someone else. Scan says, "Tengu, Drake".

Interesting. I get myself collected and start moving my toons. The Tengu vanishes without dropping probes. The drake hangs around. It smells like bait and a trap to me.

Now, do they think I'm going to go for this drake? Do they think I've not noticed the Tengu? The Tengu is cloaked for a while and then leaves system. The drake is still fucking around. I dock everyone, and watch with my scout. The drake continues to shake its ass obviously on the gate. I continue to ignore it. Then bingo... the rest of the fleet jumps in.

Drake, Talos, Scimi, Drake, Tengu.

Hello Mr Trap, I'm not interested today. They left system. Local stayed quiet. I scouted myself back home and settled my shiny into my hanger.

People ask me how do I make my ISK? I carebear, just like erryone else.

Bed time, work calls.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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