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.

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday so yay for unallocated skill points.

Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked.

In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end of A…

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…
