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.

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…

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 of A…
