Rolling in Plans

Respect is one of those interesting words that is much larger than its physical volume. Composed of seven letters, it is an average word composed of many of the most common characters in the English Alphabet. Yet, entire civilizations have risen because of it, religions have been founded, and life and death created over it. Being much larger then it is, it seems odd that respect is so easily understood. It is not given as much as it is wanted. It highly desired but hard to obtain. It is malleable in form as well. Respect is quite interesting. I believe that many people seek it. One does not have to be liked to be respected. It does not mean praise. It is a powerful word.

You are not supposed to tell people that you do things other than PvP and that you PvP. I've been told that people may not respect you. I've never been overly good at remember what I am and am not supposed to do. I did PvP if that helps. I was out in fleets over the weekend and I shot stuff and everything.

My capital ship building partner wandered back, using his ten free days given to him. This freed up some of the hull blueprints I've wanted access to and I've been gleefully making copies. The changes in Crius of freeing up the ability to copy has changed my world. Knowing I was heading somewhat this way once Crius was released, I've been steadily making copies for a few months now. With capital ship components that is and is not a lot of copies.

It is a lot of copies because its hoards and delicious hoards of them. However, it isn't super impressive because capital stuff takes a while to copy. But, copies. Copies! All mine! Ahahhahahahahahahahaha!

Why copies? For personal use. We have stuff we build together, but he has been away from the game so I've been making copies for myself. The stuff we build together is neat and organized and sells properly bringing in a steady income. When I am released on my own I squeal in delight and roll about in my blue prints going, "Ahahahaha building stuff!!" I then run off and buy things while cackling gleefully. I've been using downtime, productively to

I need an Archon for Chella. In the new world of gate jumping carriers, I suspect I'm going to need more than one Archon for Chella. I think that we will start seeing carriers and dreads treated more like bigger ships to use doing stuff now that they can go through gates. I am reminded of my words during the veteran player retention at the summer summit, when I went into how vets want to use their big toys (capitals) to do things.

I've never had a particular desire to take a carrier into battle. In the back of my mind, I debate how expensive the damn thing is. But, its become part of my life. I have the character trained into these skills. I still tend to sit there and think that these are not activities for me to do.

But, what are activities for me to do? I still have my first Daredevil. I've never flown it. I somehow settled that I could fly T2 frigates but not pirate frigates. Now I'm planning to not just build a singular Archon for a project but to get myself set up to replace my Archon after I lose it.  It should be fun.

  1. "My capital ship building partner wandered back, using his ten free days given to him."

    Ten free days? What is this, some incentive given to inactive players? If so, I'd like to know how to get in on that, I have a few friends who could benefit from it.

    "I sequel in delight and roll about in my blue prints"

    I'll assume you meant "squeal," but if not, then I suppose two Sugars would be a good thing. ;)

    2. Darn, and for a moment I thought we might have two of the best CSM reps...

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 …
