What do I do with these clones?

What do you do with a bunch of clones fulla nice things?

And when will I believe that I can have nice things of my own?

What questions. After staggering throught he revamped menues I discovered that I've been sitting in my low grade slave clone. "Man, what an idiot," I thought to myself. "Wouldn't I have at some point changed to my training clone?"

It turns out, I had. I was misreading the menu and seeing my slave clone sitting there. I wasn't looking at my personal augmentations. Whoops.

My clones make me chuckle and shake my head. I've not lost one with anything real in it.

I still have my original +4 clone for example. I never upgraded to +5's because they are expensive (and yes I have billions of ISK and I still fret).

I have my low grade slave clone from my time in SnuffBox. I didn't get high grades because they are expensive and I fret about ISK (still with billions). I have no use for it. I don't enjoy armor and they are so damn fancy.

There was a point when I pondered self destructing and just getting rid of them. That seems wasteful and dramatic. I could self destruct alone in a corner somewhere that no one noticed. But, that just isn't me. I've always been a resource hoarder in any game.

Ah well. I guess I have plenty of empty ones hanging around.

    On a slow weekend in RL when you may just want to log in hollar at a couple old friends and go roaming and if you happen to lose that pod while you roam... well you had fun at the eve reunion eh?
    Just an idea and my .02 *tips hat

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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

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…

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 …
