Sunday Summary

Sunday was a sleepy, lazy day. I spent most of the weekend slumped in my chair, wallowing in extreme laziness. I barely wrote anything. I sat over draft after draft and left the pages empty. If Saturday had not had my adventure in being ransomed I would have gone postless all weekend.

Not that I do not have ideas. The drafts I've created will filter out over the next week I suspect. I had ideas but no motivation. Instead, I spent Sunday floating around space, participating in various fleets for various objectives.

I flew a battleship out into glorious battle.


I can't say that I am in love with it. Its slow. I hate slow ships. I'll save them for when they are called for. I felt really useful as well, until someone called for an Oracle fleet. Sigh. Its a lose, lose battle still to be able to join all the fleets.

 Later, for a change of pace I flew a Cynabal into glorious battle. I fucked up and died. But I learned a lot about the ship. I like it a lot more than I have. This is why I have a stack of them in station. I may finally be figuring out what I like.

After that, I flew a Prophecy. Naoru helped me with some fits a few days ago and I finally have armor battlecruisers again. I tend to dislike armor ships. They are slow and clumsy and I get frustrated flying them. But, the Prophecy is so plump that its just okay that it is so slow and fat. I also learned that it is very, very small next to a Hyperion.


I stared into the swirling beauty of a cynosural field. They are amazing things, these little portals of energy. And so important to the functioning of Eve. Jumping in my supplies for TCS has made life much more fluid.


I'm halfway through the third book in a Song of Ice and Fire (aka the books for Game of Thrones). I read them back in the early 2000's but I've been reading them as I play Eve so that I understand what everyone is going on about in chat. Its helped.

And, I started planning out Eve Vegas in October. I purchased my tickets back in January. I don't know if anyone that I know is going. That has not yet been a prerequisite for me to go to Eve events.

At some point I downloaded Star Wars the Old Republic but I have not yet tried it.

I've lived and died and won and lost this weekend. Its been interesting and productive. I've missed fleets and think that as my cough heals from my cold I will step up my sociability a bit more and pull out of this alone spell that I have been huddled in for the bulk of this month.

  1. I think you'll be pretty disappointed in Old Republic D:

    Even my old guildies gave up on it. It's just WoW in space sadly. See if you like it, but I wouldn't spend a dime on the game itself unless you want to check out the features of the subscriber master race, which are pretty numerous over free to play.

  2. I just want to say thanks for that fight last night. It was nice to see someone not run away when put up against a fleet of similar composition

    1. I would not say that our logisticless fleet was a similar comp when you had 3 scythes on the field. :) But we where there to take the fight, be it as it may. It is why we play, after all. Thank you for undocking and bringing it to us.

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. …

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …

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…
