Origin of a Spaceship: Incursus

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship

Incursus
  • A social and migratory frigate
  • A dedicated jouster
Background:
It is understood that the first fleets of Incursus were observed during the colonization of the solar system, Cat, in the Essence system.  The foundation of the Gallente Federation caused an explosion of civilization across this sector of space.  It was when several migrating fleets of Incursus devastated long caravans of barges that these frigates gained notice.  It was not long until orphaned  spaceships were domesticated and swiftly worked their way to the front of the Gallente Navy.

Observations:
It has been noted that Incursus are fleet spaceships.  Their large migratory trips span the entire width of the Gallente Federation.  The migration appears to be constant if long term.  These frigates have proven to be a hardy species, prone to low fatigue over long trips.

The highly social nature of the Incrusus makes it an excellent front line ship.  In domestication, Incruses are used as both scouts and initial assault spaceships.  Their tough, exterior armor is duel layered and self repairs at a rapid speed when provided the proper nanite diet.

Due to its highly developed social skills, the Incursus has proven swift and reliable to train.  Incursus are highly sought after by new capsuleers.  Many will eventually acquire their own, personal herd.  The loyalty of these frigates is astonishing.  Many capsuleers can release their frigates to migrate with the wild fleets only to have them respond to trained sequences years later.  This fierce loyalty makes the Incursus a frigate that will never be bypassed by an active, efficient Navy.

Points of Note:
The Incursus is equipped with a large spear on one side of the spaceship.  This spear is seen on each ship and does not appear to differentiate in size by gender or fleet position.  Normally, sharp protrusions are seen on spaceship hybridism types bred by Sansha's Nation.  The Incursus appears to have come about its spear as part of its natural, evolutionary path.

Notation made of migratory fleets have shown Incursus jousting with these spears.  As the ships work their way up the fleet rankings the jousts become duels and at the level of Wing Commander they often end in death.  All spaceships are seen jousting and appears to prove an important role in venting the natural aggression of these spaceships.

Incursus are also known to cohabit with symbiotic drone pairs.

Technical Note:
The Incursus spear like, rigid limb is know as the stimulare pungere virga

Sub-Species:
Enyo
Ishkur

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 …
