Something new for me

I learned about hiding passive modules a few days ago. Being me, since it was not an immediate type of thing, I put it in the back of my mind to look into later.

This morning, while puttering around I decided to look into it. I did a bit of clicking on my actual modules. Then I did some searches and read some wikies. Then I did a bit more clicking and noticed the menu icon at the very bottom of my module screen. I vaguely remember clicking on this when I started and going, "I'm not going to worry about this now and just learn to play before I try to customize."

Now, at a point that customization of my various game tools is becoming an important thing, I clicked on it and found hide passive modules on the list. My passive modules vanished. I realized, if I had understood this sooner, I'd have had fewer issues with figuring out which modules were passive and which active.

I then felt a bit stupid.

Better late then never.

To sooth my feelings I went to try to make some ISK. I found a 4/10 plex, and since my mood was rather grumpy, I decided to log on my logi as support and go for it.

To my intense surprise, I did fine. I did warp out once. No issues, just taking precautions since I was playing with armor DPS and not shield. The plex is not some type of monster. I am simply terrible at PvE. Someone described someone else at work as a 'brick' when it came to their learning during their initial training. That is how I am with PvE. A brick. It just does not absorb into me.

In the end, my plex gave me no shinies. I was sad, I do admit. I wanted to secure my glorious solo plexing with a shiny to prove that I was amazing.

Ahh well.

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…

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 …
