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.

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday so yay for unallocated skill points.

Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked.

In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end of A…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…
