The master of some

Mark, over at Eve Travel (the font of all lore) said that he had shuttle mastery. Mark has been playing a very individual and fascinating game of Eve for a long time. He has skipped over the parts that some play and sunk deeply into the part that I wish was more in all of our faces.

He is also an adorable sweetheart.

He said on twitter that he had shuttle mastery. I automatically assumed that I did not. It turns out I am wrong. I, Sugar Kyle, am a master of the Minmatar Shuttle.

But that is not all!

I have also mastered assault frigates and interceptors.

I could giggle. Go me!

  1. I haven't checked my mastery yet, but I saw that on Twitter and thought, "How does one even master that? What skills even cover shuttles?" Navigation skills I suppose.

    1. Navigation, engineering, blah blah blah. One of my Eve goals for a long time ways to fly every single Frigate perfectly. Which I define as not one more skillpoint could be spent to boost usage of any particular ship in anything that ship could possibly be fit to do in the role it's meant to serve. CCP keeps introducing more frigrates and moving the goalpost. But it's an interesting problem, it means scanning all 5 for instance, hacking, some leadership, all weapons systems including drones, ecm.. yada yada. Heck, mining frigate means ores. It's over 150 mil SP to fly every frigate perfectly. It's a stupid amount of skillpoints for let me tell you a sort of useless personal achievement. The only upside is my main has an ungodly broad base of playstyles.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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