Origin of a Spaceship: Megathron

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship





Background
Often seen in the wild, the Megathron is a formidable, predatory battleship known for its solitary ways. Unlike battleships, such as the Rokh, the Megathron is well known to seek its own company despite highly developed, observed social behaviors.

Found on the very edges of the Gallente Federation’s Connection the to Minmatar Federation, the Megathron was slow to adapt to captivity. A voracious hunter of great appetite and power it is rarely houses in social, fleet hangars.

Points of Interest
The Megathron is one of the true, focused brawling battleships. A fierce hunter, this spaceship tends to roar into the hunt. Often, its sheer presence holds its prey spellbound as it sprints across the distance to tackle its prey.

Megathrons are often seen displaying themselves in loud, vicious one on one combat. These exhibitions of combat appear to be loosely connected to mating rituals. However, it is to note that they will not limit this combat to just themselves but will display and attack other ships of all sizes. While capable of social interactions, most Magathrons appear to prefer to be the only one of their species on the field at any given moment.

Once domesticated, these spaceships are fiercely loyal to pilot and fleet. They will be first into battle and the last to leave a field often to the distress of their pilot.

Observations
It is well believed that the comparative ability of the Megathron compared to other, Genus members such as the Dominix is a biological inheritance to the Rifter. Due to mitochondrial studies in the exoskeleton of the Megathron, it appears that at some point there was interbreeding between Minmatar and Gallente spaceships.

From the age of the sequences, it appears that this was far enough in its history to leave residual markings on the Megathron. These are most commonly seen in its split hull exoskeleton, abnormal agility, and fierce fighting abilities. The Megathron appears to have interbreed cleanly back to the Gallente Family showing a distinct natural exhibition of blaster platforms and a high social communication with drone colonies. Also, it lacks the distinct, rough edged camouflage of the Minmatar family, sporting a more organic, greenness.

  1. (cheeky) Notes from Uncle Travelling Noob:

    Dark tales on the edges of space whisper about a wild sub species of the Megathron caused by runaway rogue drone infestations. Entirely transformed internally into a robotic version of itself, this dangerous and deceptive sub species is known as the Megatron.

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 …
