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. ;)

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. …

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …
