Game Life Balance

There are times when my writings take on quite a serious tone. To an extent, that seriousness is real. I like to engage in aspects of Eve Online that are not limited to the realm of video game. Hence my musings on social relationships and the actions of people.
My personal action is to go on Vacation this weekend. I’m rather excited about it. It comes with some interesting side effects related to Eve. Normally when I travel I take my laptop with me. Because this is a three day adventure put together for us by my husband, we are both going to leave our laptops (but take phones and tablets for we are but only so brave) for the duration of the trip.
Eve is a game that one can pick up and put down at ease. My biggest task is making sure my skill queues extend well into next week. Sugar will work on her laser skills. Chella will follow Vand’s path of a perfect Guardian pilot. Life is good.
But… I have an in game life that is affected. I run my market and after three sold days of neglect it will be a bit tattered in some areas. Because I work on Monday, it will not be fully patched until mid week I expect. This is not life ending or world changing but it is a fact. I need to make sure my POS is also is fueled and happy. I find the duel planning amusing. I must pack my bag and fuel my POS and write my corp a note that I will be away in case anyone was planning to ask me to transport anything and make sure there is enough dog food…
This is my first trip this summer. In another two months I will be off to Eve Vegas so this last minute thing is pretty exciting.
My blog will continue to post random things all weekend. It's well trained it seems.
And then, I'll post some pictures of Niagara. We're staying on the Canada side.

  1. Have an awesome trip. The Maid of the Mist is an interesting boat ride if you've got the time.

  2. Seriously considering Eve Vegas. It's only a few hour drive from me in Arizona, and I love Vegas. I've only been gaming with Eve for 6 months so I'm not going to know anybody, but I still think I'd have a good time.

    Have a great trip! Stay away from the barrel rides (it's a scam: they promise a round-trip excursion).

    (Love the blog, btw. Will you be my Obi-wan/Yoda?)

    1. We're doing the boat to the falls, behind the falls, and the butterfly garden.

      I have no idea I'd that's a joke, your seeking a mentor, you plan to go to the dark side so long for a master to kill in the future, or a comment on My looks and inabilities with language.

      ;P

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 …
