All dressed up and ready to scan

"I noticed your killboard isn't active. Have you been gone for a bit?"

Lol. Chats are funny. It is nice to see that my boys think so highly of my still. Poor things.

I undocked and the Amarr station pooped me out like the slippery, golden turd nugget that my pod is and I started my journey.  (When did they add this extra glitter and graphics to the gates?). I even saw one of the ship transport things sliding out of warp at the gate.

I tried to do the right thing. I jumped into this clone but the only shuttle along my path was nine jumps away. Annoyed, I decided to go naked into the world. I remember that flying in your pod is bad. I just somewhat forgot why. I know implants are one reason. People sit on gates to pop pods hoping for a big kill.  I'm not worried about smartbombers. So.... I ran back to my ship with my butt hanging out and my UI too small.

I don't recognize any system names but I never really hung out in this part of space.

I made it back to my station where I enjoyed looking for the 'jump in station' button after jumping through all those star gates. This is why one does not play tired.

Next. I can undock again and make sure I can see the new ships in my overview. I am making the assumption that still has to be fixed by hand. Then I can learn to scan again and find my first tiny wormhole.

Why was I so worried about being killed? What would it matter? This is a positive to aloneness that I had not much thought about.

With my body and ship bonded back together (I will forever believe I am the ship. I hate the crew lore.), I had only to fiddle with my overview settings to add whatever new ships are around.

Confession time: I never really used a bunch of overviews. I had a somewhat sparse one for PvP without a lot of the floating junk but that was it. I find that I am a mediocre HUD user. I noticed in the Division 2 that I look for on screen queues more than I do the indicators on the map. When my friend turned on fog of war I didn't actually notice a difference because I don't rely on the display that much day to day.

However, I do know the importance of the overview and I'm sure I can remember what button to press to d-scan at some point. It is a button. Or button combo. Somewhere on my keyboard.  And if I am going to go play in the danger zone I need to pretend to give myself the opportunity to escape.

But, when I opened my overview, all teh ships were there. I guess that got pushed at some point.


As for the true update with Animal Crossing: Whitney has moved in and I decided to pay off my last mortgage loan for my basement. So, that is all paid off and now I can focus on the redesign of my island to ship the villagers over and give my house an island in between the orchard and the meadow.

  2. Oh almost forgot, I play in windowed mode and if you press Esc and go to the graphics/display tab you can scale it up via a drop down setting box but there isnt a way to actually lock it that I know of

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways.

So am I.

Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills.

I don't like them.

That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it.

When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said that t…

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday so yay for unallocated skill points.

Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked.

In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end of A…
