Eve Offline

I play Eve offline as well.

This morning, my phone went off to drag me into the land of getting up to early.  While I lay, tangled in blankets and unsure if employment was worth the effort of waking up, I also checked my phone since it was in my hand from turning off the alarms.

I had someone saying good morning because they know my work schedule and live in the UK and are up.  I had someone else that left question about a discussion from last night.  I use gtalk.  No need to not put these  nice phones to use, eh?    I had a new twitter follower (yay!) and I read CCP Falcon comment about the downtime starting early and cursed a bit because I had forgotten that it would consume my prework playing time.

Mornings are my time to catch up on little idle things, see how the boys did over night and have quick social time with my central and west coast time zone corpmates.  I have some hot and heavy business deals going down to acquire new blue prints while I am at work.  The patch days are too often days that I am working.  Woe is me.

From my following Twitter arguments at work and forum reading to when Ender sent me a text to get my POS password for something.  Most of my corp has my phone number and I theirs.  Disconnects cause a flurry of texts to scatter back and forth so that the fleet knows why I lost connection.

The EveGate client is terrible on a cellphone.  Yet I still use it when I need to.  And soon there will be online/offline chat integration.  I fear for those that know me. 

This will work quite well because Eve doesn't stop when you log off.  The lack of a static world causes this constant connectivity.  Its a choice and one I chose to make.  I happen to like most of the people that I interact with on a regular basis and I enjoy talking to them just to talk to them.  Eve is the best chat client ever In My Opinion.

See everyone on the other side of Retribution.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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