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. …

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…

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …
