CSM9 - Day 239

Things were rather slow making for a short update. However a few things did slip in before Christmas slowed everything to a halt.

On Tuesday, CCP Rise posted the first major edit to the recon rebalance thread which has passed 100 pages. In this revision the Pilgrim gets tweaked for neut range and strength, the resists are dropped to increase the general fragility, and the dscan immunity is staying. This has calmed some and upset others who wanted recons to have a viable, tanking, core fleet role.

Also, on Tuesday a module rebalance dev blog was posted. This was noted by CCP Seagull in her Proteus overview. I’d not seen any of the module rebalancing and a lot of this hits me in my Jaguar fit. CCP has taken a step back with the renaming schemes and is trying to preserve some of the creativity of the names. Making everything bland and tasteless makes sense in a way but it is boring. Science Fiction is supposed to be fun and creative and thoughtful and exciting. It looks like a few new modules are being added to the Ore and Syndicate loyalty point stores. Improving NPC nullsec LP stores and LP stores has been something that has been pushed for. The feedback thread is here.

While it is not busy, I’ve still found ample CSM things to do with my time. The summit is in a few weeks. I’ve sat down over the last few days and gone through my notes and my mailbox to fill out my From the Players to CCP document sections. These are questions, ideas, and concerns that come to me. I gather them up and the ones that I cannot get answered over time come with me to the Summit. I organize these by session and when they go, “Anything else?” I can whip out my notebook and make sure that I’ve touched on everything.

I’ve requested a few sessions and I think I will make another request or two. I’d like to check in the general health of low sec. I’d like to see how the capital changes are going. I want to talk about fighter assist. I really want to sit down with the UI team on points. I’d love to find someone to listen to some market and contract points and cleanup because that really did not get touched on last time. All I can do is prepare and do my best to get all of it on the table.

My CSMX interview with Cap Stable should be next weekend. The weekend after I’ll hold my monthly talk. That should get everything caught up by the time the summit starts.

  1. The issue I have with ORE is that it is essentially for the industrialist. The missions are L4 mining missions. (which I have done on Sisi). I doubt these are even run by anybody in the game. (some stats for confirming this?). I think adding the LP available into hi-sec would increase a consumption of ORE faction goods as well as a decent isk sink. If Sisters and Thukker are available, then why not ORE?

    1. I run L4 mining missions, but only in low sec. I like the ice mining and gas harvesting ones. The ore mining ones don't pay out well considering the length of time it takes.

      I should probably try to find out which skill hardwiring sells the best. The LP isn't bad. And yes, easier access to ORE would be nice. I should try to ninja mine some day.

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. …

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …

Busy, busy, busy

I find that it is still easy to write about Eve. However, I've not been playing Eve. I spent most of the last few weeks finishing up my crochet project. It was a birthday present for my best friend. Since someone expressed interest in it, here it is.




It is displayed on a king size bed. I made it as a birthday present for my best friend. We've had twenty years of friendship. I met her online when I was a teenager. Our birthdays are two weeks apart so I celebrated mine by making her something. I'm not one to celebrate birthdays but now and then I try to pull myself to a social norm and do something special for the people I love.

I spent a long time fighting to be myself. I finally discovered a balance in this last handful of years. It is still a struggle but for some reason, in my late thirties, understanding is moving briskly along. With that understanding comes comfort. I don't have to fight about and for things like I used to. I don't have to make anyone accept me…
