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.

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday so yay for unallocated skill points.

Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked.

In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end of A…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…
