My Eve Hoard

There is no time like the present to try new things. With the launch of Crius, I've decided to start producing some of my own frigate and cruiser hulls. The reasons are quite simple. Researching them is easier. Plus, I like projects. When you combine the two and shake it works out nicely.

The third reason is simply logistics. I'm attempting to decrease my reliance on my freighters. Many of my hauls are larger simply due to tossing in a fresh stack of frigates or a half dozen cruisers. Because my market attempts to stock every T1 hull, I go through a lot of them.

But the final reason is that I think it will be fun. I really, really like building stuff.

I've been told that I'm supposed to be a good role model to people now. I'm supposed to advise people in the correct and proper ways to do things. And my methods of going in screaming, "Wee!" and enjoying myself without looking at the big, over arcing, economy of Eve does not qualify as that. So, for all the super serious min/maxers, I'm sorry for offending and enjoying playing Eve wrong. Honest.

With my POS down I have to find research slots. This will be the most interesting part. I'll be able to research on the new lines and see if I lose all of my ISK. My last build of station containers cost me 210 ISK in taxes. I managed to get over that hurdle. I could buy already researched things but, naw! I recently named a container hoard and I think that is very accurate. My Eve Dragon Side's hoard is my creation stuff. Industry, POS, education. That's my Eve hoard.

What I do like is the industry tab under the show information for items. The industry tab not only lists the mineral needs but it lists the blue prints. This has made blueprint hunting easier. I approved of this.


How pretty! Anyway, I'm in a position where I don't have to worry about optimizing against the market forces for the hulls I will be building. I'll be able to build them and list them at current, competitive rates. I'm not going to drop prices further because I still have to haul, move, and build it all. Also, we're talking about 500k and 10m isk hulls. While I don't dance upon the alter of efficiency, I do have an interest in keeping my wallet balance from going down.

The entire project will take a few weeks to get off the ground due to researching. I can research twenty things at a time. By the time I'm ready to build the rest of my refine skills will be good and I can dabble in the new compressed ore market. That is, if I'm not utterly, unacceptably wicked and supplementing myself by doing some mining during my down time. Maybe I should make this blog as rated C for Carebear, with these thoughts.

  1. Crius has got me bouncing too. I'm even considering an adventure into building t2 frigate hulls.

  5. Come with me. I have started a few fun things like this between Olbra and Hek, and... I need a hauler.
    The manufacturing taxes are still low there : do not tell anyone! ;-)

  6. Have you considered entering into to some sort of purchasing agreement with local manufacturing corps? You could probably arrange some sort of agreement where you get a good price and they get an assured customer. It may be a good plan to fill the holes with what you can't do yourself. Just an idea I have been toying with personally.

    1. Yes. It is a supply and demand problem. My needs are sporadic and unpredictable. That makes it hard to supply from somewhere. I don't keep much stock (if any) in reserve.

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 …
