CSM9 - Day 246

CCP has started to trickle back into the office but it has been very, very quiet.

Some of the features for Proteus have been updated on the test server. The new asteroid environment is available on Sisi. Steve went and tested it. He reported that his FPS did not drop or choke on the new graphics. I highly advise people to go and do some checking on their own to see how their graphics cards are handling the environment. The environment looks very busy and cluttered but it does not affect cloaking. That was a major worry that popped up on twitter.

There may be a mass test on Tuesday for those that enjoy participating in those. Keep your eye out on the test forums. Also the new Ore items are in game. Per one poster they are currently over priced. The other tiericde items appear not to be in the game. Most of the development teams are still out so the update is not the full release.

With the general downtime due to the holidays for CCP I've been occupying myself combing through Eve mail and building my Summit documents. Two weeks to go! I also found a few eve-mails I did not respond to back in September. The week that I was at the summit I read mails but did not respond to them all. I mailed each of those people. I try to respond to everything so I'm always a bit embarrassed when I miss something.

Working through twenty seven pages of mail is going to take a bit but I expect to have it done by the end of next weekend. I break everything down into its proper header and then put that under the summit topic it belongs with. Loose topics I just try to organize and I skim over them near the end of each session and bring up what does or may fit into that session. Organization is very important. A lot of information is going back and forth and it would be easy to miss things.

I had my interview with Cap Stable for CSMX.  Next weekend I'll have my monthly Open Q&A. That should keep me fully occupied up to the Summit itself.

  1. Sugar do you a link for interview? I did visit the CapStable page, but I was unable to locate the CSMX interviews.

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

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

CSM9 - Day 140

The week has been the Summer Summit for CSM9. That did not mean that the world stopped for us. Things in Eve moved forward because we have the Oceanas release coming on the 22nd. CCP Fozzie has released a small interceptor tweak . Interdictors are also being retouched for fine detailing. The thread about it is up. This is not a rebalance where the ships gain complete new roles and identities. This is focused on fine tuning. I have spoken up about the fact that the situation where Titans were being bumped out of POS shields was not acceptable to me. I’ve voiced my disagreement as have other players. CCP Fozzie has posted changes to cyno usage outside of POS force fields . I am not fully happy with this change. I am happy that it will stop the Titan bumping issue. I am not happy with not being able to light cynos on shields. I feel that it will negatively affect tackling ships hugging force fields and I have expressed that. The topic came up in one of our Summit Meetings with CCP Fo
