I don’t really have anything major to write about, so I thought I’d add some random bits and pieces.
Escalation… Or not
I did an escalation today. It was a drone one so it was crap loot, no bounties, crap-ish salvage. And I skipped the final part, because it was in Rancer – yeah, that’s not happening in my T3, sorry. 😛
I found what can only be described as a ‘weird thingy’ in the final part of the escalation (that I did):
Whatever this thingy is, the drones really liked it. Maybe its the equivalent of holoreels.
Just a couple of other nice shots I got over the last week or so:
Obviously, like all my images, I’ve tweaked it a bit. The originals can be uploaded if anyone wants though.
Okay, this one wasn’t edited. It was too pretty to tinker with!
This is kind of cool to do – equally so if you don’t like the CSM or vote for it. Its done by Mandrill. You can read about it on his blog post (as well as get the updated link for the survey itself) here.
Sometime about a couple of months back I got to wondering just how many jumps in a freighter I do each month for my building stuff. So this time I sat and worked it out as I did it. Here’s the results:
- 6 jumps to Rens and back for POS fuel – 12 jumps
- 6 jumps to Rens and back to put up sales. Multiplied by 5 for the number of trips it takes – 60 jumps
- 24 jumps to Jita and back for moon goo. Multiplied by 2 for the number of trips it takes – 96 jumps
So 12+60+96. 168 freighter jumps in a month. I cheat though, as you’ve already (probably) seen from an earlier entry. I use 2 freighters at once for the longer hauls, so in reality I only really initiate a warp for them a little more than half this amount. Its still a fair few hours work though.
Just a few more weeks until Tyrannis. I’m really liking the current build of Planetary Interaction on the test server. It fuels my mild OCD something fierce… Avoiding it is going to be the real challenge, but it depends a lot on how many other people are depleting resources on planets near me.
I still have no use for most of the stuff you make there – at least not in a reasonable timeframe. Making my own POS fuel is a lovely idea, but I think at this stage I’d need to have several alts working on it, and its far too much micromanagement than I have the time for. So we’ll see I guess.
