It seems that posting one’s “EVE Space” is all the rage on the EVE Online blogosphere, so here’s mine after the cut. This is where I play EVE ! Either at this laptop on the coffee table or on the iPhone running Mocha VNC while out and about. Perfect for updating market orders, which right now, is all I get up to in EVE!
I was having a chat with some friends about all the different ways you can make money in EVE Online that don’t involve running missions or killing NPC ships or being a pirate or scammer. I came up with nine, which, as far as I can tell, puts EVE Online head and shoulders above any other MMO. What’s more, these nine don’t include money making methods involving piracy, skulduggery or general jacknappery!
Since there are so many approaches to making cash (often great “side” businesses suitable for alts) I’m going to write each one up over a series of posts providing as much detail as I am able. Note, it’s nigh-impossible to know everything there is to know about the systems in EVE Online, so this will be my best effort and comments/thoughts are welcome.
Although I am back playing EVE Online I am not exactly flying around the galaxy laying waste to all who oppose me. Instead, I’m sitting in a station, staring at the order and market screens, working on making a a few space bucks so I can afford to buy a decent main character. Why buy? Well, 18 months ago I traded away my two year old character and no way am I going to spend two years developing a new character from scratch. Instead, I think I can trade my way to enough cash for a decent character in only a quarter of the time it would take me to train a newby. I’ll blog my experiences here for everyone’s general amusement as well as maybe a few other bits and pieces as they come up.
I’ve decided to wrap up the story of Elrond with a few screenshots I snapped before I stopped writing that little story-based AAR. I partly ran out of steam but mostly I wasn’t sure anyone was reading the damn thing so it became more work than it was worth!
Even so, I was quite happy with the construction I was working on and thought others might enjoy my diabolical scheme! Read on for some cult compound fun! Read more…
Had a bit of a brain wave and finally got around to making a single page indexing all the Dwarf Fortress tutorials I have written. It is there up at the top of the page and should be an easy way for people to jump between tutorials as they need to. Hope that makes navigation a bit easier!
