When I am in Minecraft I am in Space

The best part is that I can calmly and honestly blame Susan Black for all of this. It is quite refreshing.

Susan commented that she has been playing Minecraft and that she is playing on an Amarr server. This caused Altaen to say that that sounded cool and me to go, "I've been wanting to play community Minecraft." A quick message to my husband and a "npnp" back and we were in business with a community server for our corporation and friends.

Brando gave it a try and sank right in. We logged in with a PvP survival mode. It turned night, Zombies and Creepers chased us and we managed to get established, build a newbie house for new members joining into the game, sort out a Minecraft channel on coms to compliment our DOTA, WoP, Civilization channels, and we were in business.

I've now done logistics on Eve, chatted, and not undocked at all because I am building my house out of sandstone in a sand poor area. Of course, we played Minecraft all yesterday evening and today which caused Altaen to scold us and say he was rejecting Miencraft forever due to low fleet participation. What darkness have I brought into our lives?

While it is a shiny new toy I expect for us to play and then most stop playing with a few that play a few times a week.

Our Molden Heath community has grown from an Eve community to a larger, out of game community. When people tire of Eve they stay and maintain the relationships they have made as they play. Others, play other games when time commitment will not allow them to actively participate in the type of Eve that 7-2 focuses on. Everyone plays together and that constant interaction creates a stronger bond then corporation or standings. I find myself thinking of things very communally. Someone new was on coms and I popped up to say hi and see who was visiting "us".

And it is amusing that everything is Eve themed in our games. The gate to the Nether is called the Bosena Gate. Vand's horse is named Sleipnir and Naughty's after the rulers of NPC Empire. In Civilization often people name cities after neighboring systems from our home.

We did drag ourselves away from house building and farming and fighting zombies to have Eve time. A Jabber ping went out and we herded off the Minecraft room to the main room and logged in to assist a fleet. That turned into a scouting trip around Molden Heath where we tried to jump a group running level five missions. We failed to grab them due to mission gates and aware people (the horror). However, we found an unsupported capital fleet bashing a POS on the way back home.


This was a wild dash by our scout to pin some down and the read of the fleet race to support. It worked out. Suddenly dreadnoughts.

It's late now. Vand is riding Sleipnir off looking for a desert. I don't know what they want with a desert but everyone wants one. It is a full PvP server but we work together to do things and we share most stuff as well. The PvP aspect makes us pay for our mistakes. When we fight a monster we have to coordinate or we kill each other. It lets us set traps and in genearl do what we want to do, which, is mostly, get along.

But one has to leave open options, yes?

  1. Hi,

    Is your community open to new people? I'm currently pretty settled in Eve, but looking for a good minecraft server on which to play with a good bunch of peeps.

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 …

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 …
