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.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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