Event Coordination

I am putting together a thing for my boys and extended family boys in two weeks.

It is dipping my toes into a more complex event coordination. Earlier this year Diz had a fleet concept idea but it never came through. The ships for it are still somewhere in some station. Anyway, it just never happened. I'd been anticipating this fleet for some time. Of late, my personal confidence level has grown in indirect ways. I'm ready to be Diz's coordination and planning. He just has to FC it.

I am trying to put it together. I'm am rather worried that the entire thing will be a flop. I just need people to show up and join fleet. I am providing the ships but I can not provide the people.

I just spent a lot of ISK on this project. I'm vest for it to be a success. By a success I just want good participation and people to leave fleet when we are done with a smile. I am hoping that if I set it up, they will come.

Dher said I should tell people what ships to bring. I vetoed that. I've learned that asking people to come prepared is a preassigned recipe for fail. I've written posts and today I am sending out a detailed mail. Yet, I know the day of, people will be like, "Oh! What are we doing? I don't have a ship." despite the two weeks of notice.

And that is fine. I just need their bodies and their participation.

I also need to grind up more ISK since I just spent ISK on the fleet. I am debating adding a donate to the Event Holder line at the end. Perhaps that is to silly or I am greedy. I'll figure that out if it is a success or not. Even if it is successful and everyone gushes about how wonderful it is, I won't be personally backing this type of thing on the regular.

Thinking about logistics... I did a Jita run the other day to pick up my orca pack and drop it off where my indy toon lives. I asked if anyone needed anything run up there is back. Its a 30 some odd jump trip so it takes a moment. Ender goes, "Take up my faction stuff?" I'm like, "Sure" so up pops a trade window. I dump it into my hold and then look at it.

It took me until Gallente space to clear the spots from my eyes from the shiny light erupting from all that bling. The non shiny items were not Ender's. Surprise. I also had a death grip on my jump/warp/cloak until I got there.

I jumped thorugh Uedama as well. The sheer amount of concord on the gate told me that there had been a gank. Go, go cloaky hauler.

Nex time I'm gonna put a bill limit on it or something. Gah.

  1. Ok I saw this post had no comments on it and I randomly decided it needed one (I do such things when I am tired) anyways,
    I would like to do a comparison on what those items are worth on the EVE market today and wonder if the difference is in the amount of drops available or the amount of people looking to find the items and therefore increasing supply and competition on the market. It is interesting to myself at least to wonder how much things have changed in 5 years.

  2. PS I know the feeling of hauling WAY more than your comfortable with I remember the first time I hauled a couple bill in my ship to/from a trade hub and anyone who doesn't sweat it obviously has a lot more isk than I do lol.

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 …

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…
