Origin of a Spaceship: Dominix

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship

Dominix
  • A slow moving, drone hive, spaceship
  • Domi - Domi plural of domus, the Latin term meaning house or home

Background

It is a well documented piece of history that the original Dominix were not properly classified as spaceships for some time. Although discovery was swiftly made by the first survey teams, the Dominix was inappropriately classified as an organic nest believed to have been built by drones. The bulging, spheroid shape and the dull green-gray coloring camouflaged these ships well enough that entire flocks of Hulks and Mackinaw's would descend upon the slow, migrating fleets and attempt to mine them.
Due to their placid nature, the Dominix was one of the first domesticated spaceships in what would become defined as Family Gallente. There were arguments over the genus classification, but due to their hunting prowess and great size, Dominix were properly classified as genus Battleship.

Observations
The Dominix is an ancient species of spaceship. From fossil records, found in asteroids and dead planets, hull components of Dominix can be found. These components are often in line with current specimens  showing few if any transmutations that suggest an earlier representative of the species.

The spaceship is highly social and maintains a vast, intricate social structure in the complex size of the fleet. Remote repairs on older or injured members is commonly seen. Drones also appear to not have a particular individual in which they reside but consider the greater fleet to be their home.

The Dominix is an easy keeper. Its good temperament combined with its ease at reproduction have allowed for the creation of various, specialized Dominix in domesticated environments that can support turrets from lasers to smartbombs.

Other points of Note

The Dominix is only of the few clearly omnivorous spaceships in its native environment.

The size of the Dominix and its intrinsic relationship with drones has allowed it to have a symbiosis greater than many documented spaceships with drones. A Dominix can be sub-classified as a natural hive and the native environmental of drones. This has led to some wild fleets being classified as protected due to their harboring rare drone species.

Additional Facts:
From the Research Notes of Cheradeine Harper:

"Deep Space Anthropological research into communication methods with wild Dominix reveals a trinary core to their language rather than a binary base. 
Rather than label the three core components of this fascinating find with numbers, the researchers used syllables based on the sounds produced during translation. Currently the three syllables are referred to as "POH" "TAY" and "TOH"."

    1. These valuable and important notes were added to the official entry.

  2. In the first sentence under 'Other points of Note' a couple things. You don't need a comma in it and omnivorous is the correct use of the word here. Only things that really jumped out at me.
    Did you miss me?

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 …
