CSMX - Post #04

CSMX got full access to CCP this week and the shared CSM/CCP channel has been buzzing along. Later, it may slow down. Confluence access is not yet together/ For now, after being pent up for some weeks there is a lot to say. With no confluence what is being said would normally go into a longer form post. And a lot of what is being said is about structures.

Sov is puttering along the development path for June. The null sec guys are all over it and the takeover mechanics as well as structures. I know that the structure team has not been commenting in the threads. They have been reading them and going over the ideas, insights, and comments laid out. I'm hoping to see the follow up round soon.

One question that I have been asking players in and familiar with faction warfare is market hubs in locked down systems. These hubs will be attackable. Is that content enough to allow the enemy faction(s) to access market items in a system they cannot dock in?

Cruiser burners are on Sisi but they are not in their finished state yet. Special thanks to Abavus Durden who has been playing with them. Having Sisi only give burners has been asked for and it will be happening.

I've also had a few sit downs about SKINs as people double check what is supposed to happen when the application goes live. As I understand it, if you have a BPC of a skin right now that will turn into a token for a license. That license will be an item you can sell or use. If you have a skinned ship that ship will turn into a token and a vanilla hull.

There is a thread about the damage control icon change. Some people hate it. Some love it. Many are indifferent. I feel kind of sad. I thought the medical kit was cute. It also made sense to me and I liked the idea of bandaging my ship. The new icon has the redeeming feature of being blue. However, it is not an object like so many other icons. Its more a symbol or logo. That, more than anything else, is throwing me off. It just doesn't fit into the module row.

I'm still catching up to e-mail and eve-mail. I know that I am behind. I've had a lot of challenging questions and ideas thrown at me and I've not been at my best these last few weeks. I'm much more recovered and beyond a lingering and persistent cough, about up to speed finally. It will be nice when my voice comes back. As for those mails, they will all be answered, I beg patience in this.

When it comes to interacting, I'm going to try to attack Eve Uni coms next Sunday. I'm still planning on a local meet up next Saturday. It conflicts with another one but that may not be so bad. I've been struggling with the where to hold it and I just give in and we will go back to the same ale house as last time and then go from there.

  1. I too will miss the old suit/briefcase... I agree that the new icon doesn't look like a module either. There was nothing wrong with the old icon, I don't know why anyone would want to change it....

    1. Sugar, can you answer this? Why are they changing the DCU icon? Is there a reason? other than cause 'change'. I have no issue with needed changes... but unnecessary changes that break lore and history or just that... unnecessary... so why?

  2. When the skins change, where will the token be placed or given to if the ship is in an sma at a pos?

    1. Oh man what a question. I have an idea but I'll get it confirmed.

  3. Playing with the Talos burners has been fun and interesting. After flailing randomly with different ships over the past few sessions, I managed to get them down with the Deimos today.

    I'd keep testing but it's a nice day and the patio furniture won't redeploy from the garage by itself. :)

    As a FW participant, I say yes.

  5. How do I access the market items if I can't dock? Are they put in put in my hold ? Do I need to be close to the station to acess them ? Certainly being able to re supply in system is very useful

    1. Without knowing exactly I speculate that it will be like current corp market orders. It will go to a hangar and you can drop it into your cargo hold.

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. …

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…

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 …
