Open Q&A with Sugar Kyle: June 9th at 1500 & 2200

My Eve University chat is confirmed for Sunday. I decided to run it at 1500 and again at  2200. Immediately I was asked if I plan to talk for four hours. No. It is two one hour sessions. The goals to cover time zones. I know that I am always irritated that everything happens outside of my time zone. My goal is to see how well attended these are and go from there.

Here is the link to the details! Neville wrote a much better summary than I did.

If you want to attend make sure you have downloaded mumble and set it up. Directions are here. It is open so no log in and API checks and all of that stuff.

Somehow this qualifies me as a guest lecturer! Poor Eve Uni.

The goal of said talk is really just to be accessible about the CSM. We can talk Kronos. We can talk about me. We can talk about low sec. We can talk about markets. We can talk about whatever. I want to create an open floor question and answer. One of the negatives to pod casts or Eve radio is that people may listen but they don't feel as if they get to personally engage their CSM representative. Hopefully this will help with that. Sunday will be the trial run for what I hope to do monthly.

Why Eve Uni coms? For one Eve Uni has the coms to support a lot of people. For another they are very neutral. Their format also allows people to talk to me if they don't want to type questions or type questions if they don't want to talk.

I want to be reachable. Talking isn't my focus like it is for the naturally gifted like Mike and Corbexx who hop onto anyone's podcast and go. My comfort is with my writing. How ever I promised that I would push myself outside of my comfort zone and reach out to people.

Hopefully this works!

I'm more than happy to do these on week days as well. Feedback when it comes to times and where in the week they fall would be appreciated. I decided to start with Sunday because it was safe being a weekend day. As always, if you don't tell me what you want I can't try to make it happen.

  1. Your "link to the details" opens a picture of a fitting for a Badger. Just FYI.

    1. That should fix it. The badger details are another post I'll write this week. :)

  2. So for people who can't find your EVE bio and chat channel.

    1. Some people want face time? Or voice time? Hearing me say what I type may work better for them.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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