Just the Morning Chores

For reasons that do not make a large amount of sense to me, I stayed up much to late a few nights working on market orders. I'm sure that the decision came from being tired. Sunday night was the end of my work weekend and the start of my days off. Getting stuff started then to clear the way for the morning makes sense. Once exhausted everything evens out and starts making sense in fantastic and unrealistic ways. I'm sure I will find amazing pricing mistakes in the near future.

I've been contemplating my markets of late and how they have evolved into their own game play. I think that I started to lean back on them so much because I could do them on a limited time table. I really do need to get out of the station a bit more and try  some other ways to make ISK. Right now, my undock time is spent out fighting which is not a bad thing.

I resubbed one of my accounts the other day. That character is training into logistics, I think. I logged her in and found, to my horror, that she was in Aridia. I burst into tears and then worked at getting her out. I was suddenly reminded of the pain in the ass that moving supplies in and out of that area, was. I then shipped her off to my new high sec base and as part of my new cyno chain.

With that done, I spent the morning running through cynos. That has become many mornings.

Have you ever had to move Strontium Calthrates? The stuff is so bulky. When using a freighter it is not much to think about. Maybe switch our a tank mod for an expander. Then... then you get to your jump freighter and suddenly there isn't enough room. Damn stront. Damn it.

Along with some hulls and other things I ran through four jump freighter loads of cargo over the court of twoish hours. Basically each side has a cyno and then my jump fatigue gains and has to be whittled down. It was not bad but it was not the carefree system I had before. I'd have finished the entire thing in less then an hour but I'm still feeling out jump fatigue.

Sugar is now resupplied with a few things as well as a new, shiny Phobos to chase around all of the supers and capitals that have been zipping around. The market is topped off and that is a rather good thing. Snuff Box recently formed an alliance and invited Ice Fire Warriors to try life outside of Minmatar Faction Warfare. Snuff is an EU heavy corporation and growing an off time zone is very, very hard. With so many new people in town I really wanted to top off Sujarento's market with a lot of the basics that people would need and not have after moving.

I also have a dreadnought in build for someone. I'm quiet excited about getting that taken care of.  It is a nice puzzle box of a project. Next should be Chella's Archon. I'm probably going to move her over to Snuff Box once I start committing her to the field. I am reminded that she still needs a set of slave implants.

Which reminds me that I need to make some ISK. Bleh. I will say that is one thing the CSM does do. It eats into a lot of that casual time I'd be in space, ignoring the world making ISK. So, I think I'll go and work on my Pod and Planet submission instead.

  1. Hey! imagine how it is for us that live there (Aridia). It's not THAT bad...

    If I may suggest . . . beg for ISK. You're rather popular around here. Probably net you a tidy sum. In addition, we all would get the pleasure of seeing you beg. Hell, I'd probably make it my screen saver!

    1. That does not make begging appealing, Dire.

    Don't we all. I recently heavily invested in multiple BPO and some components for tech2 manufacture. Plenty of asset just lacking liquid.

    Still, I have: hulls + time = income.

    Since the introduction of Industry Interface, I have enjoyed the need to balance short term R&D against some of the long term. Cruiser and BC are slowly clocking over while various drones or munitions are a 48hr. Part of the pleasure of the business day - is at the end. "deliver jobs". What new thing can I try to make now!?

    1. I'm really crappy at making ISK from things like that. I have terrible habits of selling everything to people at cost if I build it.

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 …
