A Force Of My Own

We came back home the other day after two or so weeks out of the Heath. I realized, as I was doing my jumps that I have a little capital fleet of my own. A few months ago, when we last moved, I had a carrier. Chella moved Sugar and herself. Sugar moved in the end, and that was that.

Then I started the CIMM (Calamitous-Intent Mobile Market). That meant my jump freighter alt who is also my non TCS market alt (perfect market skills) came along. Fast forward to the last few months. During the course of my CSM campaign I came to love long skills as I have never loved them before. My Dread alt trained up to basic, combat readiness during then and this was the first deployment that I moved her in.

Suddenly, I'm a fleet of my own. I wanted to feel impressed but mostly I felt stressed trying to jump them all and maintain conversations.  One day, that 10 billion in hulls I am moving might not make my hands shake. For now, it was deep breaths and undocking them one at a time.

Those down spitting Amarr stations... grrr... grrr...

Bosena is very neglected and I will try to get that sorted out. I did stock it a fair few times while we where all gone but all the excitement is taking its toll here and there. Robinton also killed a POCO for me so I have another. My POCO document is coming, I promise. I've simply made very little headway this week on anything that was not CSM.

I may have to switch to somewhat shorter posts! That will make a few people happy.

  1. Downspitting stations are awesome - a joy to make insta-undocks for!

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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

Your ideal roadmap

To try to be a bit more interesting then blogging yet another daily list of summit meetings, how about a question?

In the producer session, as we try to figure out how to fix and improve our communication with teams and how we figure out who should be gone to for features and changes, we discussed the road map.

We discussed what 'our' ideal roadmap would be. This breaks down into the individual roadmaps for each member of the CSM. After all, we are individiuals and we have different dreams for Eve. We have different goals and features that we want to move forward or go back to.

How close are we to what CCP is looking at and planning? We discussed their safety mesures to weigh the value of features. What will this feature do for Eve? It is not enough to have an ideal road map of things you want. Those things have to have value and that value needs to be enough to dedicate the time to the feature.

Do you have an ideal roadmap? A path for Eve to head in the next year or two once …
