Today’s topic comes Diaries of a Space Noob blog and other sources:

Quick post. I was listening to a song and a question occurred to me. Where are the EVE heroes? Against a dark background surely all we have are anti-heroes? A lot of mockery is aimed at any who attempt to be white knights. EVE is a dark place and yet pretty much all other MMO’s try to place the player in the role of some form of hero, boosting the ego and taking the player out of the humdrum 1 in 7 billion that is RL. Why have I fitted into EVE? Did I never want to be that? So I guess my question is:

Today’s topic comes from a tweet from @erlendur in a conversation he was having with a pilot about having multiple overview tabs open in separate windows:

So that is the topic this month: The Overview. Is it sufficient? If not how can it be improved? Is there some way to replace it? Does it give too much information, or not enough? Please be creative and specific as the overview currently is the heartbeat of the GUI.

One of the communities that I was a part of had a competition a few months back for its players to build anything they want in survival mode on the server. That means gathering all the materials and placing everything manually, no copy and pasting. Anything could be built and a winner would be chosen. I decided to build a large Heavy Electron Blaster Cannon from eve-online, it was about 65 blocks wide and 85 long, over 60 tall. Wool was used for most of the construction I did highlight some lines with a little obsidian and stone. Truth be told I would have preferred to use diamond blocks over light blue wool but I did not have the 200+ blocks needed to complete this project. Now the inside is hollow and because I am unaware of what actually is inside I just created a small pulsing circuit to “charge” the main gun. The most difficult part was matching the angles of the Electron Blaster in Eve-online on Minecraft which only uses square blocks. Here is the result:HEB-Front

I am not going to cover much of the events leading up to the giant fight at B-R5RB because there is going to be tons of information on what happened and right now everyone is still sorting it out. I want to do is say that I could not be more happy to have seen titans, carrier, dreadnaughts, and subcaps die in the biggest battle in eve online’s ten year history. I am also extremely glad that the  stockpiles of Titans are reduced at least for now.

So here we are months into the Rubicon expansion. An expansion that put Customs Offices in high-sec into player hands and that was supposed to mean more pew pew and less free ISKies. Well so far its not exactly doing a good job spreading the content around. Combat in high-sec over POCO’s is extremely rare and when it does occur it is only around Jita between large alliances.

Earlier this week I wrote a war profiteering guide for eve online. Today I log in to find that the CFC and allies are engaged in HED-GP against N3/PL in a Tidi battle that was huge. This fight is the perfect example for what players should look for when trying to make a profit by war profiteering. I quickly looked at the ships they were losing via killboards and promptly flew a stock of them to a system that has a station to store the ships.

In eve war is both inevitable and necessary. The entire economy rests on combat because without destruction there would be no reason to create and no reason to trade. Today I will discuss how you can make a profit from the wars that fuel eve-online. I wouldn’t recommend getting involved unless you had substantial funds to invest. This venture isn’t cheap and moving the goods can cost billions. The cost is high because it requires a mass amount of goods including ships which can cost hundreds of millions each.

How do I figure out who is fighting who and where?
