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.

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways.

So am I.

Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills.

I don't like them.

That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it.

When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said that t…

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…

Nothing and Everything Changes

I can mark the passage of time from Eve with Intuition's age. He turned four last month. Today, Corbexx sent me a chat on Steam and we spent hours chattering about this and that as if it was yesterday. That is friendship.

One of the things we noticed is that our NDA is about to expire. That and the leavings of several people left us gossiping up a storm. The NDA was never a good NDA but we chose to respect the spirit of it even if the letter of it had the strength of  wet tissue paper.

Life is fine. The husband got a promotion at the start of the year. I am up for one at the end of the month that will be a fascinating life change. We also got our rental property goals started. For any that wonder how much of a basement dweller I actually am. My husband has the entire basement of the new house.

I think of Eve quite often. For one, I have it in my reddit feed. I mostly skim the titles and skip the topics. The general mood has not changed even if the people saying it has.

I saw that …
