Ode to New Stuffs

It is patch day!  I have serious posting that I might finish today but I must take a moment for more important things.

First: Ender.

I discuss Ender a lot.  He is a bitter vet. He feels no need to candy coat things. He is anti-social as all fucking hell. Razor is his favorite target to tease.  He is also a very amazing person and under that hard, spiky, crusty layer he does an amazing job at taking care of the corporation.

A simple, terse corporation mail this morning made me smile:
"armor honeycombing skillbooks dropped in hangers."
Last patch Ren was running around handing out the new sensor compensation skillbooks.  These are the things about a good corporation that make me so willing to invest my time into them.  Sure, getting a skill book is not a big deal.  But, to take the time to buy a stack and drop them into hangers makes sure that people are taken care of and that is what he did before he went to bed.

I then got a bit worried as I logged in.


What was Eve trying to say?  However, other people said that they got the same tutorial message and I am, in fact, not special.  I was still in my Stiletto and it did not appear that I was podded recently.  Mayhaps, a side effect of the patch.

But really, the most exciting part of patch day is that I can gizoogle the patch notes.  I feel that these delicate conversions of information into a wholly new spectrum of depth and sensory perception do nothing but enhance the experience of the patch.  To make sure that they are not lost to the depths of history I shall start to capture these crystalline droplets of individual beauty and save them in a permanent page to be browsed for eternity.

They can be found here in my new patch note archive.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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