The Places I’ve Been

by Melindhra on May.27, 2009, under General

Kirith Kodachi of Inner Sanctum of the Ninveah came up with an interesting Eve meme today: “The Places I’ve Been”.  The systems I have visited in EVE are shown as coloured dots in the image below.  Go ahead and click the image for a larger view.

Visited Systems

This feature only tracks where you have been since mid-2007 apparently, so a few places I’ve been to are missing.  As you can see, I have spent most of my time since then in Gallente space.  My last visit to 0.0 was in 2006 when I was looking for adventure with some friends.  I really haven’t played much since then until a couple of months ago, except for logging in to keep my skills going.

If you want to post a similar image, just open up your map, click the Star Map tab and Color Stars by Systems I’ve visited under My Information.

Star Chart for May

by Melindhra on May.01, 2009, under General

May is shaping up to be a good month for my blog. I’d like to give you an idea of what to expect from me in the next month.

I plan to post several articles for the new player, or moderately experienced player who wants to branch out into new areas. I’m looking at doing posts on missions, industry, mining and exploration.

I’d love to have your feedback on what you think should be covered in these posts. Please drop me a comment with any ideas you may have.

In addition to the articles above, I will be posting videos and anything else that would (hopefully) be of interest to EVE players.

Until the next post …

EVE Blog Banter #7 - Where no one has gone before

by Melindhra on Apr.30, 2009, under General

EVE Blog Banter #7:

Welcome to the seventh installment of the EVE Blog Banter , the monthly EVE Online blogging extravaganza created by CrazyKinux . The EVE Blog Banter involves an enthusiastic group of gaming bloggers, a common topic within the realm of EVE Online, and a week to post articles pertaining to the said topic. The resulting articles can either be short or quite extensive, either funny or dead serious, but are always a great fun to read! Any questions about the EVE Blog Banter should be directed here . Check out other EVE Blog Banter articles at the bottom of this post!

This month’s topic comes to us from yours truly, and I ask: “What 3 things haven’t you done in EVE and why? Would you be willing to try one day? Why so? Why not?

And here we go with my answers to this month’s topic!

#1 - Exploration

Exploration has really changed since I played last. This is something I definitely want to get involved in much more. I’ve trained all of the Astrometric skills and I am currently working on Survey V so I can get going on Archaeology. I have found gravimetric sites and wormholes, but I want to find a hacking or archaeological site and actually be able to do something with it.

There’s just something very alluring about flying around space and stumbling upon new things.  Of course, I’d like to find some vulcans, but hacking sites will do.

#2 - T2 Production

The last time I played actively before I came back in February, you had to win a lottery to get a T2 BPO. Now that invention is around, I want to get into T2 production. I have wrapped my head around invention and picked up quite a few of the skills I need, so I will be getting into producing T2 items. I’ve even invented a couple of BPCs. First things first though, I need to learn about the market by selling some T1 items before I start selling T2 stuff. There’s no sense in going for T2 production if you don’t have a clue what you are doing. Baby steps.

#3 - Huge 0.0 battle

I’ve always wanted to be involved in a huge battle in 0.0. By huge, I mean the type of battle where titans are taken down and billions upon billions of isk are lost. It’s not really in line with what I normally do, but I want to do it anyway. I know that there would be a huge learning curve though, so that’s what has stopped me so far. Being a perfectionist, I hate being a noob at anything. That and the fact that I didn’t really have the skills until a few months ago. My character is very industry heavy, but I’ve been around long enough (skill swapping and not actively playing) that I am quite decent at other things now.

I think that pretty much covers my top three things I’d like to do, but that’s by no means all that I want to do. It’s very possible that some of what I said makes no sense because I may be running off of two year old information. If that’s the case, just ignore me. Everyone else does. *emo sighs like Marvin*

Hello World

by Melindhra on Apr.29, 2009, under General

This is my first legitimate post.  I just finished setting up this sub-domain, blog, etc. and everything seems to be working just fine.  The DNS took a little while to propagate, but that’s to be expected.  I am getting quite good at installing and setting up WordPress.

Of the few plugins I installed, I added the WPTouch plugin for those of us with iPhones.  It’s very sexy.

I’d love to post something more detailed, but I think I’ll do that in the morning after I get some sleep.
