New Alt, Slightly Used Player

I've made a brand new, sparkling alt and I'm curious if I can find a home for her.

I'd like to expand my horizons but I'm not interested in moving my entrenched life in THC2.  It was a suggestion made to me by my business partner while I was stressing out over some things and also lamenting the fact that I am often alone in my time zone due to my schedule change last year.  He suggested that I try out a new character and go and find a corp that does things a bit differently and see some more of the world.

I mulled upon it and found it not to be a bad idea.  I'm the first to say that my experience is pretty limited.  I've grown up a low sec pilot.  I know little to nothing about high sec. I know little about null, less about Sov, and I think I've been into wormhole space a total of three times.

I'm a social person and I have noticed that I currently spend the start of my time zone alone.  Due to my work schedule I'm often on during the early day after down time on weekdays and few people that I fly with are on.  I do some scanning, tend my industry and often ship spin, write and chat my hours away.

Now, one might say this is a perfect time to go off solo and do that type of thing.  Going solo has become a personal demon for me simply because it is not what I want to do. I like my fleets. I like being social. I like doing things with other people.  Trying to force myself to fly solo only causes me to not want to do anything. I've been trying to shove myself into a situation I don't fit in because other people think it is the best thing for me.  I'm going to have to say that it is not for where I am right now.

Why make an alt?  Why not buy one?  Or use one of my not Sugar alts?

Most of my combat accounts have dedicated support roles outside of Sugar who is my 'main'.  I'm also interested in a few things that come with a new account.  Will anyone take me in?  Life as a pilot with some starting from scratch.  I also don't want any baggage sot hat I can throw myself in with enthusiasm.

Why not just go and do it vs announcing it?  Because I want to blog about it.  I'm not a spy. I'm not an Awoxer. I'm just me doing some more stuff as me. I want to be able to blog about things. I want to write about my experiences as I currently do.  I don't want to run around playing cloak and dagger. I don't want to spend my time lying.  While others enjoy it deeply and that is the game they play it is not the game that I want to play.  I don't have the energy to spend hours playing pretend and then not doing my favorite pass time of writing about what I do in Eve.  Of course it may backfire against me. It is Eve after all, game of the paranoid.  But me?  I'm just me all of the time.

Also, this is what people suggest to new players.  Start Eve.  Find a corp.  New players are useful. I advocate it as well.  I'm curious to try the path myself. It will help with encouraging others later.  The only bonus is that I get to have full access to my finances because I'm not playing ridiculous games of hide the alt. I'm not going for a pure experience just something different.

As for what I want to do? I don't know. I'd like it to have pewpew.  Beyond that, I'm pretty open to trying things out.  I need to expand my horizons some.

So.... Brand new skillless alt, used player, financially independent  okay at learning, normally easy to get along with, blogs a lot looking for some stuffs to do.  Contact Sugar Kyle.  :)

    2. If you're interested in FW, I've got a little minmatar faction warfare corp (about a dozen folks). Fun pilots, usually doing something most nights. Based out of Auga, mostly.

  5. Have you tried Wormhole life?

    While we (Foo Holdings) have some space for more players (and bloggers are welcome), we have an industrial bent rather than an initiating PVP disposition. In a wormhole, PVP is a fact of life even for the most carebearish.

    Penny (of www.tigerears.org) seems to enjoy a wormhole pirate's life.

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 …
