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...

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 …
