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...

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…

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

My Skill Queue went empty

The thing I miss most is having mail. When I log in I often check that line to see if I have mail. Unfortunately, I do not. I am not surprised. There is no reason for me to have mail. Yet, I do miss it.
In some ways having regular eve-mail was the moment that I was most connected. I had people to talk with and engage in. It was the closest I've ever been to having a normal social level that I was comfortable with. This shows you how introverted I am that eve-mail filled up my social meter. 
I log in and look around. Normally, I am looking for the people that I do not have other social contacts with. It is very, very easy to lose those relationships. The binding glue of the game has dissolved and friendship, as an adult, can take work. Even in this information time. Eve gave me things to talk about. Without it, I remember that I don't talk very much. Unless it is about dogs and driving my co-workers crazy when people come to me for advice they won't follow.
Since I logged …
