10 Million Skill Points and Diplomacy

I reached a milestone in my young game life this weekend and crossed the 10 million skill point mark with Chella.

It was unexpected. One moment I was at 9.8 and the next at 10.2. I'm sure some things passed between those points.

Now I have a toon with 10 million SP. Sugar is close behind with 8.9. I'm a badass, yes indeed, lookie, lookie.

One of the more amusing things is that 5 million is a mental hurdle for me. When introduced to things, you pick up the oddest points of refrence. When I was into my second or third day in the newbie systems, I came across an anchored can. That can was an advert for a corp. It said that they had a 5 million SP minimum. At the time I had around 600k and I remember thinking that I would never have 5 million.

Somewhere along the line, the idea of 5 million as being my first point of being 'wantable' anchored in my head. Now I am double that and I am still absolutely terrible. Poor Chella's skills are cleaning up but they are still all over the place.

Ender asked me a few days ago how I was doing with my Scimi training. I blinked at him and reminded him that I had an Oneiros. I then told him that I'd start Scimi training next month. I have a few more nav skills that I want to get together for her.

I think I will remap her into spaceship command and drones. This way she can get her drone skills out of the way and her advanced star-ship command out of the way along with Minnie cruiser V. With my vaguely plan here, she will be able to plant herself into her carrier by the end of the year in suitcase mode.

Then the carrier can be rendered into a glorious explosion trying to do something amazing.

Beyond that, my alliance leader decided that my love of ~~~~words~~~~ was such that I'd get the alliance diplomat title. He told me to go forth and be diplomatic to people. So, yah, whatever that is going to entail... yay?

I have chatter V trained but I fear that social butterfly is only up to III on the way to IV. However, the support skill of good natured has been at V for a while now and I believe that with an implant or two I will be able to bridge the gap while I wait for social butterfly to finish training up.

In celebration of these two glorious events, I shall make my own chat channel!

Amazing.

Yet, I have no idea what to name it. Right now, its closely tied between something about cupcakes and something about cupcakes. Hopefully, with some sleep I can come up with a creative and interesting idea that is easy to remember.

I'm also really liking Tilde as the channel name. We'll see.

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 …
