Unscouted Freighter Best Freighter

I was rather distracted when there was some comments about Diz facing off with a grup of cyclones a few systems over and seeing if we had any backup nearby. I undocked without thinking about it and headed in that direction. I admit, I was multi-tasking working on my work stuff and moving my body towards the need.

Once I dropped out of warp I pushed my laptop aside and started to pay attention. It is amazing how much more interesting Eve is then my job. We staged on the gate and had a Cyclone jump into us. Dher shot it and I jumped with it but he warped off before I uncloaked. I therefor warped to the gate where Diz was and had a face off with another Cyclone. Diz suggests we go to a belt, so we go and sit at the top belt to see if the fight wants to come to us. Then, Dher says that he has a cyclone pointed and needs backup.

No idea what was going on. We turned around and head back to him. I jumped through and now there are two cyclones and a drake. The one cyclone was the one we had shot at earlier and the second was the one that had faced off with us.

Mildly confused, I targeted everyone to figure out who we were shooting. Once I had that down I started to shoot the cyclone with the red in his shield bar. He was ASB fit because his shields kept jumping back. I sent my drones to the other cyclone and pointed the drake.

The first cyclone went down. Confused if we were shooting the drake or the cyclone, I saw the second cyclone's shields going down so started to shoot him. Someone was damaging the drake as well. To top it off, other members had caught up.

The cyclone exploded and the drake was just through shields as I started to shoot him.

All three ships went down. Dher said that they shot him the entire fight and he burned everything out but one Invul. Scooped the loot and to my job the gateguns were shooting everyone elses drones and not mine. I called them back to me and hit my safe to wait out GCC.

Dher also goes, "Come would be great." Very true. None of us were on coms for some reason. It is interesting how well we synced up anyway. Diz did scold us for going after the cyclone when he and ren were working down the drake. But that was more because he didn't get a second tasty cyclone.

I got a neat little convo in game from someone who has been reading my blog and wanted to say hi. That type of thing is a little fun. It also helped occupy me through finishing my work, having the program crash and wipe it, and refinishing it again so that I could go on a roam with my boys.

Canes, canes, errywere!

It was late and I was sleepy but of course I went out. A bit more ammo in the cane and we undocked. We poked our head in to see who the latest group was in Skarkon when Diz goes, "Fenrir on the gate!"

We jumped and headed for the gate. It was a 60au warp. "He has a rifter to web him," Diz said. (Webbing is used to snap slow fat assed ships into warp instantly)

Ender somehow manages to magically teleport himself ahead of all of us and call point as soon as it decloaked. We all landed and frantically shot and bumped it until...

Transcendence.

The rifter left when we all landed. Local was spiking up. We looted the wreck of all of the small things. I wound up with two Mining Forman Crystal links or something. Yay stuff. Unscouted freighters for the win. Plus it was full of goodies.

Local spiked so we ran away to the next system and docked to wait out our GCC. Local spiked for a bit as two gangs passed through but filtered back down.

The rest of the roam was unproductive. We stared down a few people, tried to grab others, had a faction warfare blob gatecamp bail when we landed, then a talos take gcc while kiting a group of canes and drakes...

A weird night. I was too tired appreciate some of it. We got to Amamake and no one was there. The question was where to look and I spoke up and said I was tired and needed to be taken home.

But things happen. Hurricanes are found afk on gates to faction warefare plexs and don't aggress back until they hit armor.

This is everyone landing as Ender kills the target.

This is Ender and Ren shooting Razor who bitched about not getting on the kill.

So tired... I kept nodding off in warp... docked up a few jumps away from home. Up 23 hours, time to crash.

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 …
