Intercepted

I discovered interceptors. Or, more accurately, I discovered that I could fly interceptors. When I first started, interceptors was one of the first skill books that I purchased for myself. I got it with the aim to eventually fly them around when I wanted to run from point A to point B in a small fast ship. Chella just never reached the point where she could fly them. Every time I started her on Gallente Frigate V I got distracted by something else.

While doing something else I idly checked to see if Sugar could fly interceptors and to my surprise, she can. Thrilled, I stole the skill book that has been sitting in a container for almost a year now and plugged it in. Now I can try my hand at interceptor tackle sometime or another.

However, I'm mostly just obsessed with the ship. It is physically beautiful to my eyes. It looks like a dragon fly. I am often disappointed in the looks of ships in Eve. I grow used to them or don't mind them or am horrified by them but rarely do I look at them and go "Oh my how lovely".

I've noticed some Minimtar ships have quite the insectile design philosophy going on. My Scimitar reminds me of an insect and I named the Stilitto Dragon Fly because well... it is.

I ran around a bit today and saw something interesting. Nulli often times hangs out in the area. However, a massive spike like that was unexpected. Nulli Secunda was moving its capital ship and super capital ship fleet. They decided to take a detour through Molden Heath. Local spiked to over 60 people. Only three belonged to my corp.

When I undocked to see what was there I was greeted with a dscan containing, 9 Aeon, 13 Archon, 2 Avatar, 2 Chimera, 4 Erebus, 1 Leviathan, 1 Moros, 4 Nidhoggur, 12 Nyx, 4 Revelation, 1 Rorqual, 9 Thanatos and 2 Wyvern. There was also a Anshar rolling along. Probably full of fuel for all of those caps.

I guess they are moving per their new plans.

To bad I didn't warp to the cyno to snap a picture of all that capital ship. The ship names were pretty amusing. The things one sees puttering around can be quite interesting.

  1. And I thought the 100 ship birthday fleet that rolled through the system I was ice mining in yesterday was big. I guess Molden Heath really is where all the cool kids hang out :)

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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