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.

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 of A…

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

The lack of perfection

I had the pleasure of having Keskora Yaari. We met a bit after I started the CSM and hit it off. As friendships often do it developed into being about the people and not the medium that we met each other in. My new house has a guest room (my previous one was taken over by my mother who moved in and never moved out) and it was fun to have someone in that I could babble about a large part of my last six months of house renovations.

I tried to pamper and spoil her. Those are always the most fun things to do when a friend comes over. I did make sure she was stuffed full of local interesting things. It is only fair, after all. My abilities as a host have improved and I was pleased with myself.

One of our interesting links, outside of Eve, is dogs. We are both dog people. Over my years blogging I have discussed and shared time my creatures. From the passing of Nyx to the acquisition of Intuition. He is doing great by the way. He is two and a half now!


We discussed Eve some but it wasn't…
