Summer in Iceland - The Rotten Shark Post

Updated Album

I woke up at ten thirty. Tomorrow I head home but today is my last day to hang out.  I could have rolled back over and gone back to sleep but I said, 'naw' and checked my phone to make sure that it was indeed ten thirty. My internal clock is amazing. Sion and Corbexx had just woken up so we gathered together and went to look for breakfast.



If anyone was worried, the boat outside of my window's dry dock is going amazingly well.


It seems that last nights being out went on until morning. Sion bailed at five after they had wandered to a heavy metal bar. I had to admit that I was not displeased that I had bailed out early. Still, it was now morning and there was an open market of some type by the habor that Sion wanted to see.

Fair enough. The second thing on the agenda was going to Cafe Loki by the big Lutheran church for him to have rotten shark. The flea market was interesting. It was a mix of professional booths and more yard sale personal type stuff. If you wanted a knitted woolen sweater, you are all set. Corbexx and I wound up picking up cookbooks of traditional Icelandic recipes. We will see how that goes.

We walked to the cafe and by the time we reached it we were actually hungry. The main part of hte building was closed but the sign tells you to use the side door and go upstiars. Upstiars its like being in someones living room but with chairs and tables. Simple and nice except for the crazed mural on the wall which has horses running around a rainbow accented castle on one side and sweeps over into a volcanic eruption with dire wolves eating carcass and women turning into harpies amid the end of the world. It was rather trippy.


I wasn't kidding.

This is actual my first real traditional Icelandic meal. I got meat soup which I kept seeing at places and heavy rye bread with lamb patte on it and some tea. I had no idea waht I was actually getting but I hoped for the best.


And some may wonder, "What was sugar picky about with this?" Well, just so you know it was the carrots. God damn cooked carrots. I just ate around them. :P

However, Sion is the real reason I'm writing right now.

This is Sion.



This is Sion's rotting shark in the tiny bowl.


So brave!


Not even gagging!


He's gonna eat all four pieces!


Thank god for a shot of Brenniven that comes with it. God damn right alcohol after that!


Tee hee. I'm back out and I'll fill in the rest of the wandering Iceland day later.

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 …
