Experiment Failure

I'm going to list my tengu project as a failure right now. While it did what I wanted it to do, I din't enjoy doing it. I found that I do not enjoy using missiles. Perhaps, I will adjust to it later. As is, I am used to blasters and auto cannons. The differences with missiles and travel time and not hitting things and size issues is just blah for me. Maybe with better or maxed skills, I'd find it more pleasant. As for now, I don't. I was told how awesome the Tengu is and that I should want to use it. They are amazing PvE boats. Well, I do not. While I try to be open minded and take the advice of others into consideration, sometimes it does not work out. If I had said "I refuse to try the Tengu cuz its not what I want" that would be one thing. However, I tried it and I do not like it. PVE boats have not been the most productive path for me so far. I've found that happens for me in Eve. Some ships and weapons work for me and some do not. I love my Jag and really can't be bothered to fly my Wolf. They are the same hull and almost identical in looks but I really dislike one over the other. PvE has been and still is my bane in Eve. While I am getting better at it, it is still not easy or pleasant for me. I'd figured out something that was working, productively. I decided to try to expand upon that. My expansion project didn't go as well as I had hoped. But, that is part of learning. Not everything works for everyone and no amount of ranting signs will make it happen. So, I'll go back to duel boxing sites. It was much more productive then what I have been doing. I also won't have to suffer the horror of faction missile prices again. Gag me with a spoon. Thankfully some of my faction shinies in Jita sold, leaving my wallet fluffier then it has been all month.

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 …
