Fondness and change

I learned about the Endurance today. What a cute ship. Man, it tempts me to drop clones into wormholes. If I do undock, I should do wild and crazy things such as go against the rules of things. I should also do them with Sugar and try to beat out the embarrassment and avoidance that is so much a part of myself.

(Gotta check if Sugar has scanning skills...)

Anyway, the Endurance. How cute. Oh yeah and skins. So many now, huh? The Blood Raider skin was disappointing. To little splatter pattern. But, it led me to look at the Ore skins in general and that is when I discovered two things.

The Noctis is now Ore yellow and there are purple spaceships in Eve.


So I looked in the store and giggled because the Amarr Imperial skin makes the Avatar look like its face has been dipped in soot in the store image. It seems like purple is an industrial thing. (big raspberry to that) The purple Orca is kinda tempting.

  1. Purple was supposed to pink - a thing CCP did for breast cancer awareness. See Evehermit's Not Really Pink: https://evehermit.wordpress.com/2016/10/15/not-really-pink/

  2. Some of my EVE friends kid me about much I like the prospect and endurance. I have used the endurance quite a lot as a mini hauler for ore, ice, and gas when hauling those items through dangerous space because it is very hard to catch one with a gatecamp and with ore/ice compression available in so many places now it can actually haul quite a bit of raw product for its size. They are great little ships, a must have for industrialists!

  3. Why WH with Endurance?
    The great advantage of Endurance is ice mining, which you can only do in shattered WH. ALso endurance cannot use Covert Ops Cloak. Imoho prospect is better for WH use.
    Using WH to jump around New Eden ice mining is an option tho, Thera sounds like a good idea then.
    Best Regards

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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