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/

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…

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…

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…
