Hello Libluini

I have been rather muddled of head and mind for the last few days. The sov blogs are now out so the occupation of thought should be easy to understand. However, as I got dressed for work I remembered someone and it made me think the oddest thought that I will probably write later tonight. Maybe I will write something about the sov blogs. We will see.

Probably. Maybe.

But this is a hello to Libluini. They have been reading my blog all day, it seems from the start or near start and leaving comments every so often. During a twelve hour work day it has made me smile more than once to see the comments trickle into my mail when I check it from time to time through the day. I love everyone's comments but I've been watching Libluini working through the one thousand four hundred and fifty-six posts that compose this blog's three years.

So! I wanted to say hello to Libluini and say thank you for the comments. I've enjoyed them. On twitter I comments and Wilhelm Arcturus he of the Ancient Gaming Noob responded.



It is a very true thing. I think that commentors are almost a holy grail for me. Having people engage with me is wonderful and improves my writing. Not everyone agrees with me. not everyone agrees with how I string my words together.  But I appreciate the engagement. I appreciate the thought. It gives me other things to write about. It opens me up to ideas that I would not have had and areas of Eve that I do not know.

And it is an absolutely decadent pleasure to know what you have written has been read.

Thank you all.

  1. In a similar vein, I have recently begun reading you after being vote matched with you for the CSM and being interested in your platform. Good luck in the race and you have my first vote.

  2. I think I went back and read all of your posts back when I first started playing last year. Your blog is a big reason why I am still in the game. Your experiences showed me how many paths there are in EVE and opened up new avenues of play for me. From a person that does trade and industry in a mix of low and high sec you are first on my ballot. I hope to see more of your great work in the coming CSM term.

  3. Uh, thanks. Unexpected, but welcome.

    Now I feel bad because I started using the account of my blog directly when dropping comments, instead of the name I'm using the most + a stealthy link to the blog. Turns out Libluini is lazy.

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

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…
