Eve Vegas 2015 - Pub Crawl

Today, CCP announced the tickets are opened for the Eve Vegas Pub Crawl. The Pub Crawl is one of those things that seems to change and mutate each year. The general idea is that people wander from bar to bar consuming some set number of drinks and socialize some how.

I've attended this once for Eve Vegas 2013. It was different but I was bored, lonely, and my shoe broke so I got a cab and went home early. I didn't participate in 2014. Now, its 2015 and I had no intention of participating until the News Article today about the Pub Crawl.

They are more having an open bar party down town at an arcade bar type thing. It will be exclusive to Eve Players for a three hour period with an open bar that looks like it will have juice and soda, not just alcohol.

On one hand it is kind of like paying for an exclusive drinking party of Eve players. On the other hand, its an organized social time and that went very well last year and I had a lot of good CSM discussions with people. Unlike my first two Eve Vegas' trips, my third one was filled with socialization. I expect that will happen this time around too.

Of course, its a hundred dollars. That is what has stopped me from pressing that particular button. I'll think about it for a few days. At the worst, it is sold out before my decision is made.

  2. The juice and soda of which you speak are known as mixers. But hey, you don't wanna miss the bus ride down. The bus ride back might be sketchy though. lol

  3. I bought tickets because i don;t drink, at all, i hate the crap. So the pub crawl was always a 'walk around with a sea of drunken idiots... yea no thanks' at least this way if people get too drunk for my taste i can play video games and ignore them. (my dad was a drunk, so i really dislike being around plastered people [no offense to anyone btw])

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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