Weighing Anchor

Really, unless one is a cat one should not climb into a small, poorly fitted box and get trapped there.

"I really want to...," I kept saying. Only, I was sitting in Jita the entire time. I had wandered there to fit a ship back in October or so and I had never left. One thing after another caught my attention and I never fit ships and moved them.

But, today as I was saying yet again that I'd really like to do .... I realized that I had trapped myself. I had set myself up to fail without meaning to.

When did I ever go to Jita to get fit? When did I ever carefully research ships for the optimal fit for an adventure? When  did I ever care? By trying, something in itself not bad, I had discovered that it is not a viable path for me. Even on my own terms I am not into theory crafting and working out fits.

I'll stick to what has worked. I will find people who are good at it and get help. There is a part of me that feels a bit guilty about this. I really feel that I should be more invested in it. But, I'm not. I understand. I can 'read' a fit. But, I can pore over market orders for hours and my eyes glaze in minutes over fitting.

I'm out of Jita now. I'll see what that brings to me. I expect that I'm going to need a bunch of stuff to make things work. Also, I have found, mayhaps some stuff to do.

I also got to go visit my potential new puppy, yesterday. He pushed  all ideas of Eve out of my head for the weekend. I'm glad we're still on the holiday cooldown with the CSM.

  2. I can't sit down with an empty fit window and come up with anything credible. Simply not my forte. I plagiarise diligently to get a start, and then adjust for budget and sometimes skills, often with disastrous results.

    The few (very few) fits I could claim as my own have evolved over literally years, adjusting for patches and my individual mode of operation. And even those started by looking at what others had done.

    Puppy is adorable. You are correct to be distracted. ;)

  3. Dat puppy! So *jelly*!

    I'm glad to hear someone else can't get into fitting. Me either. Thankfully with my focus on exploration, it is greatly simplified.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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

Have you done your Eve Vegas Survey?

I did attend Eve Vegas to the shock of many. I'd already paid for it and allotted the time. It seemed that I should go.


I went to the Grand Canyon and Hoover as well. This is not the space to discuss those amazing places or my new Camera.

Eve Vegas was a bit harder for me to go to then I expected. I've detached from Eve for the most part these past months. It is very easy to be angry, frustrated, and bitter about the past that I lived on. The game, its development, and the players move on while I find myself emotionally stuck. That emotional stickiness does not need to be given to everyone else. Part of experiencing it was shielding people from it. But, as I accepted my items and stared down the poor gentleman that tried to put a wristband around my wrist, I realized that I wasn't in as good of a place as I had hoped to be.

That is where the Survey comes in. There are a few things that I could say and did say. A few of the questions made me want to say a bit more.

One was …

Your ideal roadmap

To try to be a bit more interesting then blogging yet another daily list of summit meetings, how about a question?

In the producer session, as we try to figure out how to fix and improve our communication with teams and how we figure out who should be gone to for features and changes, we discussed the road map.

We discussed what 'our' ideal roadmap would be. This breaks down into the individual roadmaps for each member of the CSM. After all, we are individiuals and we have different dreams for Eve. We have different goals and features that we want to move forward or go back to.

How close are we to what CCP is looking at and planning? We discussed their safety mesures to weigh the value of features. What will this feature do for Eve? It is not enough to have an ideal road map of things you want. Those things have to have value and that value needs to be enough to dedicate the time to the feature.

Do you have an ideal roadmap? A path for Eve to head in the next year or two once …
