A Moment for Exploration

I got interviewed over at Sagan Exploration. Katia Sae was kind enough to give me a bit of time to answer. However, I sat down and got it done. It was a super fun interview because I was able to sink into one of my favorite pastimes in Eve. In some ways I feel a bit wicked. Most of the other people profiled explore and seek Eve's lore and history. I'm a tomb raider. I plunder sites for their goods and run off to sell them to the higher bidder.

I absolutely loved the comparison. Now I need a bullwhip or a double set of pistols.

It does make me want to go and spend some time exploring for the sake of it. With the new expansion to the Lore I may take some time out this summer to just go and sink into Eve's world and catch myself up on everything.

  1. Exploration has been my passion since i started 5 1/2 years ago. I do miss having an empty scanner to work with and REALLY exploring the systems to find those tombs to raid. I also miss selling WHs, but that's another story all unto itself. Glad you are talking more about it, even though you will probably get someone saying you are failing to play Eve right ...

    Eve ... best game to read about and not play.

  2. Thanks for doing the interview! That's the beauty of EVE, there are as many ways to explore and enjoy New Eden as there are capsuleers. :)

  3. For me, exploration died with Odyssey. Rather ironic, if I do say so myself.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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 …

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 …
