Origin of a Spaceship: Burst

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship

Burst
Background
The fossil records of the burst track it back to one of the oldest, non-predatory frigates. Located deep in the heart of the Minmatar nebula, the Burst were first overlooked as being pseudo-spaceships due to their odd structure and lack of apparent behavior characteristics. It was not until a comprehensive catalog of flora was being done that the Burst was observed in action.

A larg group of cruisers sank deep into the thick, dust of the Nebula. At the heart of these clouds spaceships uses the dust to scrape parasites from their hulls. It was at this time that the first swarm of burst were seen covering a cruiser fleet. However, these small, flat spaceships were not attacking nor being attacked. Rich beams of energy flowed across the cruisers who held perfect still as the Bursts scraped their hulls clean and appeared to repair basic damage.

Observations
There are a handful of spaceships that fit into the mutualism specialization. The Burst appears to have started its existence with a more herbivorous appetite to asteroids. However, do the the proliferation of a hybridized bioengineered frigate known as the Venture, the Burst had to adapt to survive. This has drawn it out of the heart of the Nebula. A highly social frigate that depends on others, Bursts have been seen to insinuate themselves into frigate and occasional cruiser fleets where they adopt the migratory patterns of their new fleet.

Fragile and small Bursts use the thick, dust of the nebula as camouflage. The cleaning and repairs that they do tot he hulls of other spaceships appear to give them loose type of security.

Points of Note
It appears that the flat structure of the Burst's exoskeleton allow it to hug large chunk of nebula debris as camouflage deep in the crimson depths of the Minmatar nebula. Not all spaceships allow the Burst neutrality and they often use their natural camouflage to good effect.

The Burst is a well established species but rarely does it appear on the outer edges of the nebula. The largest concentrations are found deep in the heart of well established systems. However, with its habitat overrun, the Burst appears to have entered into a species wide colonization effort to the middle edges to the edges of the Minmatar nebula where it uses association for protection.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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