New Ship!

I'm still nice and young in the game and new ships can be gained easily enough.

Today, my new ship is a Scimitar. Well... new ship yesterday.. but I'm fitting it out today.

Chella, in an amusing way, has more 'cool stuff' up her sleeve then Sugar. While Chella has focused on logistics and support, Sugar has been working her way into being a solid pewpew capable creature. (Sorry Hong, love my girls)

I have dubed him "Spray Tan" cuz its an awesome name.

Now my logistics capabilities cover both the Oneiros and Scimitar. I think Chella will stop there. I was going to go Oneiros and then up to the Carrier and be all spiffy but it was brought to my attention that I needed a shield logi as well.

The other idea, which is hatching a bit is my thoughts from back in May before they nerfed incursions. With incursions denerfed a bit people have been running them again. Chella is Logi V and with friends in the incursion fleets it may be something new to try out. I'm always interested in new ways to make ISK.

New ship day is fun. Sugar flies the same loop of ships normally. Hurricane -> Noctis -> Jag and back around. Although, yesterday, after hearing some interesting stories of gankage and failed gankers I ran up to high sec to chase some of them around. Sadly, no luck for me. So I ran around for a little bit and then ran back down to low sec.

I am rather sure I was completely unproductive yesterday when it comms to 'playing' and 'being productive'. However, my time covers other stuff from chatting with the people who have popped into our public rooms to enjoying the company of those around me and managing my sell orders (I'm a terrible trader but I try kinda).

So, new ship happiness. Sugar may have new ships in the next month or two. I buckled down and plugged Minnie Cruiser 5 into her. I then forgot I did it and happily, she is grinding away. I do have a stack of other ships coming. I asked my builder friend if he thought I planned to finance his entire game for him with the amount of ships hes trying to stuff into me. I'm still clinging to staying over the 6bil mark.

That leaves me with my Scout and my Tengu problem. The repetitive beatings with the Tengu stick are starting to soak in. My internal resistance is starting to crumble. I want to do more things on my own... but blah.. Tengu...

Thanks to the Boiians. I stole the picture from their fun board. Killmail here. I think I'm stalking them.

I'm all excited, the Scimi is all fit and I go, "Someone come shoot Sugar for a moment without killing her so I can see my shield reps?"

"Okay," says Ender.

Thanny, Chimera and 20 Ogre II's.

I docked.

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 …
