Acquisition Accessibility

I dislike having ideas because they are normally self serving.  Self serving ideas are not necessarily bad but my own needs are a horrible filter as to what is a good, bad, or indifferent idea. Thus, my chances of having a bad idea that sounds reasonable to myself are much larger.

I'm a drug dealer and one of the biggest irritations I have is that I cannot gather a lot of the base resources for my drugs in any type of effective manner.  I will not say that I cannot gather them. I could.  I could spend countless hours installing jump clones all over various regions, tuck ventures in, and spend hours hunting down gas clouds while avoiding people trying to kill me.  If I can even get into some of the areas due to them being in null sec.

In Molden Heath I can collect the gas that lets me make Sooth Sayer.  Now, Sooth is one of the most underused drugs on my list. I don't even make it because I can't sell it. I'm sure someone uses it. After Fozzie finished beating Tracking Enhancers with his nerf bat maybe people will want it. Currently, it is not on my list of ways to make ISK.

I hate that. I'd like gas to be more like asteroid distribution.  Not every asteroid is in every region but every region has several different types of asteroid.

The four empires are each defined by their own nebula.  The nebula are beautiful. However, it seems to me that they should supply more than one type of gas per region. Nebula are composed of gases and particles. These various gases and particles are how they get their color. I would think that these gas clouds would disperse in more than one small region considering that each nebula has more than one region..  Even if two types of gas were available per region it would open up my ability to gather a bit more on my own without cutting off the usefulness of others gathering and supplying.

Monopolies seem to me to be both good at bad. They are interesting and give value to a resource on one hand but on another they make denial by one group to everyone else very easy. Some areas of Eve, for one person to go out and gather things, are so inhospitable and ridiculous to access that gathering the resource in any conceivable manner is not going to happen.

I'm fine with not being able to supply myself with everything in the game at a low effort. I'm also fine with having some things require a major effort to acquire on my own. Yet, there is a midpoint of functionality I'd like to have access to.  Drug manufacturing is already a bulky business where material transportation consumes a lot of time and logistics.

But my idea may be born out of personal want instead of being useful in anyway.

  1. Try setting buy orders for these gases, so other people can provide you.

Maybe one day!

 [15:32:10] Trig Vaulter > Sugar Kyle Nice bio - so carebear sweet - oh you have a 50m ISK bounty - so someday more grizzly  [15:32:38 ] Sugar Kyle > /emote raises an eyebrow to Trig  [15:32:40 ] Sugar Kyle > okay :)  [15:32:52 ] Sugar Kyle > maybe one day I will try PvP out When I logged in one of the first things I did was answer a question in Eve Uni Public Help. It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f

What are all of these buttons for?

My snooty villager, Naomi, wants to move out. I picked her because she is a blue cow with some wild makeup but we have not really bonded like I have with Savannah and Mitzi... oh wait yeah wrong game. So, my clan is almost finished the second step of the Manhunt in Division 2. We just have one more zone to clear and then we can hunt down the secondary target to reveal the next... err wait, waaaaaiittt... Sorry about that. Resetting things. What do I want to do? That has been my problem for a while now. If I play Eve, what do I want to do in Eve? While I did PvP it was never my draw. The old PvE sucks. The new PvE may be okay but do I want to do it? Who am I? What am I? And do I need to be unique and interesting? I think that I may want to look in small wormholes and try a exciting, fragile life. With some of the ships that are available I can, perhaps, have an interesting life where I may or may not fall prey to someone but it does not have to define what
