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.

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 …
