Oh, you didn't expect me to take GCC?

Instead of going to bed like a good girl, I spent some time ratting and playing with FRAPS. Hopefully I'll have something to put up. I have some concepts...

Anyway, there I was buzzing around minding my business ratting when the only other person in system undocks in a Rupture. There is only one belt in the system, I'm at it, and I'm in a Jag. A quick look at him shows that he is a 4 year old toon. My estimates of it being a complete fail rupture are somewhat low. I'm the cautious type.

So I book out of system. My home system is next door anyway. I need to go to bed, badly. I therefore, check the belts around my home. Then the rupture jumps in system and so does a thrasher. Hmm. I go and hang out at the POS for a bit and scan them. They are looking for me it seems. The Thrasher is about 2 months old. The Rupture the same guy from next door. They don't know I'm home. The thrasher leaves system but an Incursus comes in. I decide to move to a better dscan spot and go visit a pounce I have over one of the gates.

The Incursus lands on the gate. He sits there. I stare at him. Rupture is still in system. Then, he decides to start moving away from the gate.

To me, it smells of bait. I take a deep breath and it still smells of bait. So, I roll back to the POS. I then change my route and head to the station where I land 20k off of the Incursus. How interesting.

I dock.

I switch into a Hurricane. Both are still in system.

I undock.

Rupture and Incursus sitting off the station. The Rupture takes off when my cane shows up on grid. The Incursus sits there. I switch to barrage ammo. He sits there some more. I MWD towards him to close the distance and target him. He is still sitting there.

I wonder what station games he thinks I am playing... The normal station games?... I guess I am... they just might not be the ones he is expecting...

I'm amused now. I'll take global erryday.

PewPew. Incursus in half shields. His shields are repping. Interesting. Pewpew. Incursus in Armor. Pewpew. Incursus in half armor. I'm about 30k out now and nailing him with barrage from autocannons. This is so not an alpha setup.

Pewpew... he docks.

Damn.

I roll back to the POS to debate my options and wait out GCC.

They decide to leave.

Oh well. I tried :D I'm proud of myself for that.

Sec status is back up to -4.4. Go me!

I hope I'm doing this pirate thing okay...

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 …
