The Path to Vegas

Somer Blink is about to celebrate crossing the 300 trillion mark. They have had a few shaky days with someone managing to drop some nasty scripting to steal user account logins due to their not realizing that they had a gambling problem.

Yet another reason Eve is so damn fun. Gambling. Player run built and run things.

Gambling made me remember that Eve Vegas approaches. It went from months and months and months to a sudden rush that its not that far away.

I finally got around to picking up my plane tickets. I'm a bit unhappy that I couldn't find a direct flight to Vegas. I kept hoping a flight would pop up. Somehow I will manage.

This means I'm set. Flight is booked. Hotel is booked. Convention ticket is purchased.

From those who are going not everyone is going to the convention. That is cool, there will be plenty of time to hang out with my people. I am very much interested in everything but Dust. If my concept of note taking and such works out I'll do everything there.

The Mittani is supposed to have a speech and I'm quite interested in that.

Supposedly we will have internet access and power in the conference. My laptop and I will be quite happy keeping track of what is going on if that is the case. I keep being told to take pictures. Therefor, I'll probably take a shit ton of pictures and set up a photo gallery for people that like that type of thing.

We'll see how it goes.

The CCP Developer list is:

CCP Arrow - Eve - UI Design

CCP Bettik - Eve - In game events/Missions/Story

CCP Guard - Eve - Community

CCP Soundwave - Eve - Eve Online Lead Designer

CCP Stillman - Eve - Security

CCP Vertias - Eve - Time Dilatation

CCP Nothing - Dust 514 - Game designer and economist

I remember what a mess some of the information filtering back from fanfest was. Hopefully I'll be able to be coherent. Or not. Who knows. I won't be suffering any hangovers thankfully so my inabilities will be 100% my own fail. I at least want to give it a try. My biggest complaint was that so little written information came out and everyone wanted everyone to watch the videos.

If I enjoy this I may think about going to fanfest in the spring.

  1. I hope you have fun in Vegas, that way you make it to Iceland. I was blown away by the experience and that was before Fanfest began.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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 …
