Patch notes For EVE Online: Odyssey 1.0.10

I woke up, bleary eyed, with a cat on my back purring in my ear and was thankful that today was a day off. I managed to leave the warm, shelter of my bed, make some tea and try to log into Eve as the kettle started the liquid of gods, aka tea. My launcher was already up from last night and when I asked it to log me in, it gave me the old log in screen and told me that I was running an incompatible version. Oh.  I've learned that one must close and reopen the launcher for it to start its update in these situations, when an update has gone through.

I might as well skim the patch notes as it updates. The update only takes a moment or two but I'm not moving quickly this morning. If one has not been following the patch notes for Odyssey I've found them interesting. Lots of character creator bugs are being nipped, something I'm thankful for. I often don't have all of the hairstyles load and that is very stressful when I am playing avatar barbie and designing a look for a character. Also, the changes back and forth with the exploration sites are becoming almost dramatic with spawning, not spawning, hacking, despawning, when, etc.  In fact, we had a conversation over the weekend about how exploration sites don't despawn until they are fully hacked. Now they will despawn again. When I was first testing them, as soon as you warped out they exploded. They don't seem to explode anymore. Having followed them closely since they were released on the test server, the changes and tweaks are very apparent to me.

What caught my eye, however, was this.

"Jumpgates have been resized to be compatible in scale for all variants between the different racial styles."
And I laughed. Because yesterday, I wrote "Anyone notice that a lot of gates got a bit bigger with Odyssey?"  I floated that it was a side effect of them making the new gates. Sard commented that it was a design decision. Today, there is a gate resize of some sort.

I'm amused.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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. …

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …

Busy, busy, busy

I find that it is still easy to write about Eve. However, I've not been playing Eve. I spent most of the last few weeks finishing up my crochet project. It was a birthday present for my best friend. Since someone expressed interest in it, here it is.




It is displayed on a king size bed. I made it as a birthday present for my best friend. We've had twenty years of friendship. I met her online when I was a teenager. Our birthdays are two weeks apart so I celebrated mine by making her something. I'm not one to celebrate birthdays but now and then I try to pull myself to a social norm and do something special for the people I love.

I spent a long time fighting to be myself. I finally discovered a balance in this last handful of years. It is still a struggle but for some reason, in my late thirties, understanding is moving briskly along. With that understanding comes comfort. I don't have to fight about and for things like I used to. I don't have to make anyone accept me…
