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. …

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 …
