A Possible New Bonus...

There was a lot of good information coming out of the community for Fanfest this year. I was super pleased at how many blogs, micro blogs, and round table summaries surfaced. At this rate, I'll not have to write my own notes for them at Eve Vegas this October! I can dream at least, eh?

A lot of changes are happening. How do I feel about them? Well, they are going to happen so I'd like to get elbows deep in them to see what they are actually going to do and move on from there. I'm excited for the SiSi update so that I can actually see all of this in action and more Dev blogs and posts better land.

I finally shipped down a medium tower and at some point soon I will downgrade my entire POS process. Right now I am burning fuel as if I hate my wallet. I don't hate my wallet. My POS is just not profitable at all right now.

There is this:


CCP it appears has decided to invest in kitchenware. I dub this the MLS Skillet. I believe it should have a bacon crisping bonus. Along with the Nestor aka the hand blender, I can use a Nyx as a plate and I'm all set to have a meal. However, I do hope each one comes with bandaids for the papercuts I am expecting to see. At least they are interesting. I won't call them pretty and I won't call them ugly. It's kind of how a woman is called handsome when she is striking and not unattractive but not classicaly pretty.

I will probably have to learn missile skills now.

    1. So you can use it in the house in a gourmet kitchen or out at the chuck wagon on the range?

    2. Hmmmm... striking and utilitarian huh? Kinda like this?

  4. Sugar Kyle thinking about training missile skills? Has the world gone mad???!!

  5. Why are you downgrading your POS? Is this in response to the industry changes or just the usual pre-summer slump?

    I have similarly downgraded, but only because I am struggling to maintain enthusiasm for the current 'interface of clicks' now that I have seen the replacement in the blogs.

  6. The battleship looks more like a carrier than our actual carriers.
    ps. Get a missile alt.

    1. Naw, Sugar is my main combat account. She has all the support skill just needs the missile flavored ones.

  7. Change of topic just a bit; I was really excited to hear the news regarding the new T2 mining frig and the valuable ore spawns in lowsec. My alts mine in Gulfonodi in Molden Heath - I know that you are very familiar with that area:-) Something tells me that we might be bumping heads later this year Sugar - I'm definitely going to go out in to lowsec (your neck of the woods) to get me some of those tasty ores, and I'm hoping you and your folks won't let me do it unmolested:-) Take care and gl on the CSM...

    1. There are 8 systems with a security status of .1 or .2 in Molden Heath, so you won't even need to wait for the new sites to spawn. Just start mining at a belt :)

    2. Come on down. I'm interested to see how viable this will be.

  8. As someone who does a great deal of BBQ over charcoal (and damn good BBQ at that) I heartily approve this post and this ship model.

  9. Actually, that's not a skillet, it's griddle: http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/331177373497?lpid=82

    Also a Manta Ray, which I think was the intended parallel.

    1. LOL for the picture and let's not be reasonable with all that manta ray stuff.

  10. I initially thought the Barghest looked like an unfriendly ping pong paddle, but I think griddle/skillet is a much better description. It does seem like you should be able to land smaller craft on its back.

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. …

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…
