Eve Dreams

I had an Eve dream which I posted on twitter.It was halarious enough, and I remembered it well enough, that I'd post it for people to snicker at me.

I woke up around 0700 and I laughed because it was Saturday. Wake up or go to sleep? I woke up so early because I am normally up at 0500 for work. I decided, sleep! Back I drifted off after pulling my cat off of my face where she was trying to greet me.


Normal morning picture with this kitty. She has recently gone blind but that hasn't stopped her from not realizing this and still find my face to be in every morning. But, anyway, its Saturday, mmmm sleep... and back I drifted to start playing Eve.

I was in my Jaguar flying towards a stargate when I saw an Orca coak in front of me. I realized that it couldn't warp when cloaked so I burned right for it and bumped into it. It decloaked and I started to point it but it warped away. I warped after it and suddenly we are in a field on a planet, but obviously this is normal.

So there is the Orca and I'm chasing it and it is evading me. It dodges me (this is a dream remember) and flies away really fast, skimming the grass. I chase it down and find it and start to point it as it warps away again! Where? It warped up to one of the bulletin boards that is floating in the sky (because we're on a planet in a field). I follow after it and bump it as I try to target it but none of my targeting is working. I'm trying to click in space (except my view is not a monitor playing Eve) to target it. I just can't target it and it manages to warp/fly off as I'm chasing it down hitting my targeting and nothing happening.

Then it flies into a mall and up some steps where it bashes into a wall and bounces off into an elevator which closes. I woke up incredibly frustrated. Grrr! Why didn't my lock work. What was wrong with my keyboard? Of course, I started to wonder why the Orca flew up a set of steps and twisted into an Elevator as well.

So. Yeah. Dreams.

  1. There is probably inner meaning here somewhere. I don't think that orca is really an orca.

  2. That sounds like a die hard tackle pilot lol subconciously obsessing about those that get away for even when you do your absolute best or your technique is good some do get away.
    Extremely Frustrating

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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

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…

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …
