To the Sky!



Tonight and the Rest of my Life - Nina Gordon (Lyrics)

This is how flying armor ships vs shield ships makes me feel, or so I told Wex as we discussed how I dislike Proteus (because armor) but like Proteus (because I find them interesting). I just don't like to fly them. When someone says fly a ship I think about flying it. In space, engine trails glorious against the darkness.


Down to the earth I fell 
With dripping wings
Heavy things won't fly 


And such was how I felt as Diz called for armor cruisers for a roam and I discovered that all of my armor cruisers where set up as armor heavy cruisers or kiting shield boats. I didn't even have one of the kiting armor Omens put together. Instead, I had a hangar of shield ships.

I know that armor is the meta but....


So.. I have a thing for shield ships...

Gleaming in the dark sea 
I'm as light as air
Floating there breathlessly 

I just can't get over the sheer pleasure of flying my ships and watching them twist and spun about in the three dimensional environment.

Rebellion!  I shall fly spaceships for the simple enjoyment of flying spaceships!

  1. Don't break the meta! It's serious business, remember...? Fun?!?!? Where does it say you're allowed to have fun...!!!! :P

    Kidding aside, the foodie naming conventions for your ships is very cool...

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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