Eve Vegas 2013


Eve Vegas 2013 - October 18-20th 2013

Already?  Oh yes.  Ten months away.  Fanfest is not even here yet, but prepare.  Its not in Iceland its in Las Vegas again.  Another chance to have some fun with cheaper prices and more options then before.

The Forum Thread is up.
Hello there, are you sober yet? It's been a couple months and in making sure we fulfill our commitents to casino accounting we are finalizng the contract for EveVegas 2013. As voted in by a very large majority at EveVegas 2013 we are moving to the Rio where they are offering us their suites for $99 (their website is showing a price of $200 right now so thats a good deal) more excitiing for you as an attendee we are negioating for 10 high roller experiences, limos, suites and diamond status packages. 
In addition I'm trying to see what we can do to mix things up this year and make eve vegas 2013 even better than 2012. This includes:1. Workshops, instead of just listening to people talk at you break off into high/low/null sec rooms to talk with the devs in charge of your player experience about their plans and your input2. More prizes, working hard this year to get more sponsors involved3. A bigger better reception, still working the details on this so I don't want to promise something we can't deliver.
I'm currently looking at the weekend of Oct 18-20, 2013 and hope to have more news to share in the near future. 
Update: Contract signed, more details to come.

From Facebook:

The contract is signed, here are some details
Suite at the Rio $99 a night (it's an all suite hotel)Free internetNight club passes 
I have lots of diamond cards, limo rides and suites to give away.
Also got a good discount on food and beverage this year so we can afford to give you more for your dollar!
Speaking of, we are in talks now for some big supirses but I won't disclose any details until its firmed up.. no need to let you down if something can't happen!
In convention space news we got the main ballroom with a built in stage as well as 3 break out rooms. This idea this year is to break up the talks with break out rooms divided into high sec/low sec/null sec where you can talk back to the devs and work up new ideas.
More to come! 
Just letting people get their planning started.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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