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. ;)

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday so yay for unallocated skill points.

Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked.

In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end of A…
