NES: Little Updates

In case anyone was spending their time worried that I was tired f my new project.

I just added an active and inactive page to the archive. I created them as master lists that someone can just scroll through from A to Z.

I added a few more blogs to the list. I'm now adding the month/year that I add them to the database. As I see people's blogs I am trying to snatch them up and add them in. It isn't a perfect system but the list is growing.

I am also putting a little update notice on the main page. This should help anyone checking the site to know that it is an active and tended project.

This weekend I will probably start looking at categories as well and add a few more news articles once I hunt them down.

I'm going to let the name soak in a bit more but I will probably buy a domain name for it shortly.

I know that there is a lot of Eve Blog drama out there right now. New Eden Source is simply an archive project. I can get my kicks out of seeing myself as a historian or librarian. If anything, the Eve Blog drama out there shows a need for independent sources and lists not focused on anything but creating accessibility paths for those seeking information about Eve. This is never going to be a highly complex website. That is not the goal. I want it very simple because its feature is the information that it holds.

  1. You might consider heaving a "Filter" on the blogs so the user can use "show only active blogs", e.g. if looking for information about more recent stuff or the up-to-date mechanics of EVE.

    I don't know anything about how complex it would be to implement that, though.

    1. Thank would be wonderful but it is well above my current abilities. However, may be time to learn some basic website language beyond my HTML abilities.

      Some of what you are looking for will be in the category pages once I figure out what I want them to say and how I want them to look. It will not be a search and get focused flavor cookie option but it should allow someone to easily select a sub-page that has a more focused list of what they want.

  2. I am being part of the peanut gallery, with trivial suggestions. No rush; your list is already wonderful. Seriously.

    Can you add 'contact details' on new eden sources? Your front page has 'If you have any links for me to add leave a comment or send me an e-mail and I will add it.'

    However it also has "Comments : You do not have permission to add comments."

    I also can't find an email address, or pilot name on it, or an explicit link back to this site to allow people to add comments.

    1. No worries. I will get that info added tonight. I dunno why the comments are weird. If I cannot get them working I will try to remove them.

  3. http://talocanunited.com/wordpress/feed/ : wormhole category(if you end up adding categories).

    Now all I need to do us update my own lists from yours (and add this talocan's site too)

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…
