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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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

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 …
