TCS: Making Wishes

Today is a wish day.
I wish that when I sold items from the corporate hangar it showed as the corporation selling items instead of the individual corporation member.
"You are way to hopeful that they'll fix your thing," Ender said to me. And yes, there is truth in his rational thought process. But my process? It is not a rational one. It is a simple want. I want it. To an extent I roleplay my store. I want people to buy from TCS. I want them to figure out how the billboard code works and let me advertise on a the billboards. I want to do fun things like that! I want my market to be more fun then I am already having. I love this 'store' concept I've built. It is one of the very tangible things I pride myself in having and maintaining in Eve.

Since returning from Syndicate, I've upgraded my other TCS Employees to Tycoon, increasing my market order load. Right now, Bosena consumes about 700 orders for me. That is with me not stocking some things like fuel and ozone. The spreadsheet denizens .01 ISK me out of that market. It is fine with me, I have plenty of other things to keep listed. But it is a lot of stuff. I miss things and forget things. I may have to look into some type of more complex spreadsheet because Eve Mentat randomly misses items that run out. Then one of my boys will notice an absolutely random item hole in the market.

One interesting side effect of that towering pile of market orders is my growing comfort level with modules. I've learned a lot about a lot of things. Yet, there is always more. Altaen pointed out that I didn't have brawling rigs for frigates. Now, I am stocking them and seeing how they sell.

I also have to face my biggest evil in game (after solo PvP). That is the missiles. I hate missiles. I feel stupid with them. Their names (which I know are less complex then they used to be) and which ones people actually use and which ones they want and that I need a dozen types for every single launcher and ughhhhh run on sentences rule. But, the boys want them, and I slog through the missile market, slowly learning and absorbing them and what they do. After all, Drakes still sell and I should not neglect the missile market! But how it ties me in knots! I try to learn from the missile users but they just prattle off a half dozen indecipherable names, my eyes glaze, and I thank them while the information oozes out of my ear.

I also started re-listing industrials. They stopped selling for a while and I stopped listing them. However, Robinton pointed out that Bosena gets an insane amount of traffic from high sec warping to the station. I decided to do a trickle feed of haulers again and they have started moving nicely.

And yes, I stock warpcore stablizers.

P.S. I am comfortable with believing that these improvements wishes will happen when they finally touch the corporation interface. I just want to make my wishes now.

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday  so yay for unallocated skill points. Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked. In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f
