Origin of a Spaceship: Warp Disruption Fields

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship

Warp Disruption Fields (See also: Bubbles)
  • Pseudo Predatory Flora
  • Subclass: Mobile 

Identification:
Warp Disruption Fields can be identified by their large, globular shape.  Translucent, Warp Disruption Fields have a blue sheen to them. The exterior field is non-static and material can pass through.  There is no tack or rebound and movement is freely made through the exterior membrane. 

The exterior membrane will appear to be fragile and ripple. However it is sturdy and not prone to collapsing upon itself.  

There are multiple sizes of Warp Disruption Fields.  These various sizes indicate maturity and longevity with higher chances of mature spore release for larger Warp Disruption Fields.
Sub-Species:  Interdiction Spheres are a short lived, fast spore Warp Disruption Fields cultivated internally by spaceships.

 Properties:
There is no stickness or rebound and movement is freely made through the exterior membrane   However, internal properties destabilize spaceship warp cores. The root system forms a central node at the center of the globe.

Although classified as Flora due to their seeming lack of sentience, Warp Disruption Field have formed a parasitic bond with some spaceships.  This bond allows a handful of Spaceship species to harbor younger Warp Disruption Field and use their abilities to destabilize warp cores in their hunting.  From internal examination of specimens it appears that the Warp Disruption Field feeds off of the spaceships capacitor and power grid in a harmonious relationship. 

The sub-species Interdiction Spheres are short lived, fast spore Warp Disruption Fields cultivated internally by spaceship. These fields are ejected by the ship and briefly flare to life, releasing their spores before vanishing.  They are easily differentiated by their lack of a solid root base at the center of the Warp Disruption Field.

Location:
Warp Disruption Fields absorb energy.  In inhabited areas they can often be found clustered around jump gates, stations, and artificial structures.  These non-natural objects attract the Warp Disruption Field.  They can start to cluster at times; becoming a nuisance and must be cleared out of the area.  This purge was done on a large scale in settled, empire space.

Warp Disruption Fields can be found in proliferation in null security space.  In these areas, while clustered around manufactured energy sources they may also be found near suns and planets.

Intentional cultivation of transplanted specimens has caused a population to inhabit wormhole space.  This population can now be considered indigenous.   However, due to the sporadic nature of settlement in wormhole space they are prone to migrate towards any structure in large amounts to draw enough energy for pollination.

Other Points of Note:
Warp Disruption Fields are commonly known as 'bubbles'.  This term is only used amid the capsuleer pilots.  However, the common influence of their vernacular has caused some confusion on planets. This obliterated the sale of 'bubbles' the children's toy made of soap due to mass fear that small children would be consumed by these toys.

The roots will be at the heart of the sphere.  This must be removed, be uprooting or destruction.

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

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. …

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …
