Differences Catching My Eye

I saw this picture on a science magaizne today at the store. I walked by and saw it out the corner of my eye. The first thougth that game to my mind was, "Why is there an image of Gallente space in CVS?"

Obsessed with Eve a bit much, am I?

I was reading Gevlon's post about lossmails and the comments got me thinking. I wasn't thinking about the post or the reason everything is going where it is.

I started to debate the micro and macro levels of personal interaction with Eve Online. I blog my little self away becuase I am obsessed with soaking words in ~~ and then putting them up. Beyond that, my world view is micro. I am very new in the game and focused on learning it and becoming (hopefully) good at what I do.

I know the macro world is out there. I read the forums, I read the blogs, I read the news site, and I keep up on what is going on with the world. I feel that not understanding the macro would create a thinness to the texture of my microworld.

My view of Eve is very much tinted by the way that I play it and my life in low sec. Because of this, part of the discussion went into AFK cloaking, a topic that has puzzled me. What I found, in the discussion, was a missing piece of the puzzle and new understanding.

The people docking up and hiding are not PvP fit. That may be a 'Sugar, duh?' type of moment for most. However, I have been raised in an environment where every ship is a PvP ship. My corpmates often wait in anticipation to be scanned down in their missions, sites, and plexs for a fight. it did not occur to me that people were doing things in dangerous space in normal PvE fit ships. Suddenly, the aversion makes a lot more sense. My solution would be to undock in said PvP ship and move on, but that is not the point.

The point is, I've learned something to expand my viewpoint and bring me new understanding.

My two random discussions about Ammo today helped as well. I use faction ammo and have from early on because it was what I was told to use. However, I don't run missions and pour huge amounts of ammo into them. I was reminded that a mission runner has to look at ammo costs among other things.

I run sites that range anywhere from 5-20mil without me shooting more then a handful of NPCs. My ammo costs, diluted by my lp usage is not a big deal to me. My LP I have hundreds of thousands of because of level 5 missions. I was raised to use faction ammo and spend the isk. My lifestyle supports it. It makes sense in what I do.

But, everyone is not me. :)

I enjoy learning the differences in peoples game.

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 …
