My Glorious Weekend Adventures

I had planned out my weekend. I would have plenty of time to go out and do fleets. I'd undock and hopefully get in some fights. It'd be amazing. I'd organize my stores. I'd be productive and successful. Then I spent Friday writing a session from the Summit. But, what is one more Summit session after all? My soul and sanity had long since fled. It still left me Saturday. Saturday to go pewpew.

Maybe it was a sign when Phantomite asked, "Who's Titan is this?" It was such a surreal thing to say. It was a new Titan but still, it was just odd. But, I was happy in my NaPoc expecting to go out and fight things.



My husband came home from his three week trip and I got trapped in a hostile station in my Navy Apocalypse after leaving fleet. The system I was in was not a good system for that particular decision. But it was made and I spent some time with said newly arriving home Husband.

I was grumpy after getting trapped at the station on Saturday. I worked out this elaborate plan to extract myself. I got my most useful cyno alt into the system with supplies. I figured that I could do a downtime extraction on Wednesday, when I was off work. The rest of the time I figured I'd talk to the locals and chat with Razor as they kept coming in to visit and play Minecraft because I was not in a state to do something like tend my markets or write much more then my weekly CSM summary.



So, I shook my head at smack talk. Sometimes it was directed at me. "Come 1v1 me, Sugar." No my sweet child, Sugar is in a Navy Apocalypse and she thinks she may hate battleships.  After all, there is losing Jaguars and losing Navy Apocalypses and slave clones. Considering I've not been out money making in months, it seemed excessively wasteful...

I opened Eve Mentat and saw a stack of red orders that had expired. I realized that I was Eve Exhausted. So, I closed everything and went to go spend quality time with my spouse on a motorcycle ride.


Quality time. This is why we have blue tooth headsets. Why he picked the dirtiest spot to park in I don't know but the dirt is more illusion then layer.

After getting back from my ride the corp was fleeting up to find something to fight and maybe come extract me. Okay! I could do this. But then, they met up and fought and wind up fighting RvB. So, I attended Seamus's Eve Uni Game Mechanics class he holds every week and also listened to the corporation fight RvB while I sat in this station with 70 some people in a NaPoc.

Deciding that I hated battleships, I lay there debating my probable future. Actually, I went and made bread. I got a rack of babyback ribs that I oven cooked yesterday for half of the day. You can eat them with a spoon. So, tonight, I decided to add fresh bread for the leftovers and to soak up sauce... but back to Sugar being stuck in this station. Quite the horrible state. So, I made bread.

With my bread rising, I came back to find out that the corp was docked in the station. I logged in and undock and sure as hell I bumped right into a Snuff Blob. A very random Snuff Blob.


You see, at first I thought it was an Absolution fleet with Navy Domis and Nestors. But then there was  Barghest and a Vindicator just hanging out. I just slipped in. Ignore the random NaPoc that has joined in. It seems that they had a random meeting with Razor that escalated into no fight right before they came to rescue my NaPoc.

There is something about rescue operations that amuse me deeply. There is that time when you say, "Uhh, I'm stuck..." and then there is having your corporation descend and extract you that is amazing. It's even more amazing when you don't miss it like I almost did. Fortunately, I made it back in time which says something for my bread kneading powers.


Anyway, who is going to notice one little NaPoc slipped into the fleet after all?


So subtle.

I'm back in Sujarento. I managed to kill exactly nothing. But, I did undock. So, that makes me weekend mostly a success.

Also, I'm very close to naming my bike Sleipnir.

  2. Your husband is so blessed:-) A wife that greets him a the door when he arrives home, rides a bike, bakes bread and plays Eve. Some men have all the luck:-(

  3. Ribs are to be bbq'd with charcoal for a half day or more, not ovened. :(

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 …
