A Bit Frazzled

I started writing this a week ago when my head was buzzing. It was a very busy weekend at work and it was followed by a busy week at work and a busy weekend at work. Eve has also been crazy. However, today is a day off and I found myself half awake and half in a daze staring at my Jita alt as I slowly started to collect the items needed to restock Sujarento.

"Sugar, is all you do is market stuff?"

Kinda, at the moment. The rest of what I have been doing for the last three months has been CSM stuff. A lot of that has been done or released and I can change my stride a bit. While it is not terribly exciting on the blog posting side it is very absorbing of free time. Even my capital production has slowed down and truly, I am out of sorts when it comes to my schedule in game, again.

Foo has published his market spreadsheet blog for those that understand or wish to understand more about spreadsheets and how to use them to tell you stuff. It is all voodoo magic to me.

Susan Black has also had a relapse into her market habits. It is interesting seeing her opinion about my market activities in Sujarento. It is also nice to know I am not crazy and that others are stocking some items. It makes me a bit excited. Maybe my somewhat obscure dream of people having enough motivation to improve their game environment will happen or at least move forward a little bit.

At the moment I'm getting my Fanfest preparation together. I'm going to try to do a light cosplay. I'm not aiming for rewards just some fun. It leaves the amusing side effect that some people may meet me outside of my normal 'looks' and dressing habits. It seems as if it will be fun and it has caught my passing fancy so I shall give it a go. My jacket should arrive today and I'm about to head out to the store to get some things to upgrade it. I'll post the progress over the next few days and we can chart if it is a success or failure.

Oh yes... if anyone was wondering how the war with the kitty affection at bedtime is going, this is what I walked into last night. And on my side of the bed. It is a king sized bed. Argh! I'm holding out! I got to stay strong.

  1. It could be worse yesterday I came home from work. I laid down on the couch for a brief nap, and before I knew what had happen I had been joined by my wife and 50 lb dog. It's not a big couch...

    1. Oh I haven't posted pictures of the Doberman yet and what the two of them do to the space available on a king size bed yet.

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 …
