CSMX - Post #10

Monday had a structure meeting with Team Game of Drones. While we talk in Skype and have many comments in confluence meetings have also been requested for face time on details. I missed this one because like almost every meeting so far this term it has been on a work day. The one next week will also be on a work day. I get to review the video later. I can say that people are covering all the topics that are coming up. Cagali even alarm clocks for the meetings.

Corbexx has also set up a soundboard for next Wednesday with CCP Nullarbor.

A question from me: What Faction Warfare Warzone bonuses would people like to see on structures in this new system?

Turamarth Elrandir pointed out on his blog that a lot of questions are answered in the dev posts of the structure blog. You may hate the forums but love the dev posts.

In the middle of the controversy over SKINS there is the V5++ initiative. This is a technical blog from the art team which explains the current status of the visual overhaul of all of the ships to the current shaders. And, they've also brought something they promised at Fanfest. The ability for your ships to visually age. This is all tied up into the personification, customization, and immersion goals. All I can think is that we now need car washes. This blog is not about SKINs and the recent skin bugs which is a topic still under discussion.

The features and ideas forum have been busy.

First, there are some tweaks to drones coming. This has had a lot of discussion. Changing drones vs changing hulls vs changing both. Jayne has been making damage charts left and right about what everything means.

CCP Deligate Zero published the armor plates change. This one is rather big in many ways. Plates are very common across the armor PvP spectrum. Acquisition of plates will also cause price spikes and availability surges due to LP stores. Even if you are not into fitting and EFT pay attention to this one. It is a wide reaching rebalance.

The discussion with the Jackdaw (the Caldari Strategic Destroyer) are hot and heavy with changes being introduced based on feedback and discussion.

I'll probably try for my open coms chat next Sunday. I use mumble and Eve Uni has not yet revoked their permissions for public coms!

  1. We do have at least one "starship wash" in New Eden. It would be cool if it actually washed off dust and grime from your ship! https://evetravel.wordpress.com/2010/09/04/choonkas-ship-wash/

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…
