New Module Seeding - What I've found

I finished Battelcruiser 5 today. Now for cruiser 5. Sigh. I remind myself that there are those that have much more horrific training timers then I do. Still. It sucks. I have had the suggestions about battleships firmly shelved. Not yet. It's to soon.

My get rich as an explorer by exploiting the new modules did not quite work out like I wanted. I've made some isk off of them, but I am not swimming in billions from it. To bad for poor, poor me.

I'm finding the new modules in two places so far.

The first is exploration, through Radar sites. The second is also exploration, but through combat sites.

I did an Angel Annex the other day with a corpmate. From that, I spanwed an Reactive Armor Hardener BPC with a 50 run round.

So Far I have found:

Reactive Armor Hardener - 50 run BPC from a Faction Spawn in a scanned down combat site

XL Ancillary Shield Boosters - 5 run BPC from a Radar Site

Small Ancillary Shield Boosters - 10 run BPC from a Radar Site

Target Spectrum Breaker - 10 run BPC from a Radar Site

Profit wise things have not been going badly. I sold my first Target Spectrum Breaker for 37mil. The next sold for 10mil. The rest I dumped on an over saturated market for about 2mil.

The XL Ancillary Shield Boosters were given to my corp mate for the corp hanger.

The Reactive Armor Hardener has been the real winner so far. I wound up training another level so that I could have more build processes going on at one time. I've been building random BPC that I get in Radar sites and selling the built components for a profit. The Reactive Armor Hardner's cost me a few mil to build but so far I have sold 11 of them at 4.4mil each.

I'm happy with the return on time and investment. The issue with having market orders is sitting on top of them and adjusting them. Having read Nosy Gamer's Blog, I just grit my teeth over the botters. I knew they existed but in Eve they affect so much game play. In other games that I have played in the past, the RMT people spammed and I ignored. I had no clue that anyone actually gave them money. Then when it came to botting I had no clue that people would bot in place of playing the game.

I'm naive sometimes. I play to play. Not earning the things myself causes them to lose their meaning. The entire game is of interest to me on some level. I may not wish to spend my time mining anymore but I find the concept of mining to build very interesting and fun. I wish the mining itself was better. Now, I just let others do it and buy the minerals. In fact, the other day when I was building my Cynabal I didn't even go to the cheapest minerals. That was a new sensation for me. Normally, I'd be all over it but the jumps to get enough minerals was not worth it. I guess I've discovered some of my cheapness levels.

The Cynabal wound up costing 12mil to build. Not bad, not bad. I can't fly the damn thing. Its in the stack of "Things I own that I can not yet fly."

The side project of manufacturing things is working out for me. It's just another way to inject isk into my wallet. My normally brisk market trade has really tapered off since the last patch. This is frustrating. However, I remind myself that the market ebbs and flows. My items are just stacking up and I keep scanning them down.

I've debated commenting on the AT Tournament. However, I'm going to leave that to people who understand it and will enjoy it.

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…

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…

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…
