Come Back to the Theme Park

Siuil was nice enough to send me a chat he had with a friend from World of Warcraft.  I think it speaks for itself.

Banks: you still playing EVE?
Siuil: yeah ^^
Siuil: too far gone now couldnt give this up if I tried
Banks: come wow, new season inc in 1 week
Siuil: im fine thanks :P

Siuil: "I was there"
Banks: HAH
Banks: nice
Siuil: when you look at the scale of it
Siuil: thats truely stupid
Siuil: you wont EVER get something like that out of EVE
Siuil: and because its a single shard server its not something that happened elsrwhere

Banks: hah
Banks: i think wow has become too simplistic for u now
Banks: i think we've lost you for all eternity :SS
Banks: :D
Siuil: Unfortunately :(
Siuil: I just started to write a huge thing about what I managed to accomplish today
Siuil: realised it would be jibberish to you
Siuil: wrote this instead
Banks: hahah
Banks: rolfl
Siuil: basically this game requires me to think which is grea tnad I dont have to be online to progress my character
Siuil: therefore it appeals :D
Banks: i guess
Siuil: also due to it being single shard the community is terrific
Siuil: you wont get developers turning up to community meet ups

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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