Fracturing a frigate

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Leaving the class 3 w-space system for high-sec takes me to a system in Metropolis, and puts me close to nothing. The Mammoth hauler that returned to C3a must have had a long trip, or paid over the odds for the silos he brought home. But that capsuleer's gone off-line, ...

From too much to too little

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

I'm needed! I feel like Mrs Peel. But, sadly, I'm needed in our sister class 5 w-space system, where a visiting fleet is foolishly engaging Sleepers with not enough ship, as proved when one of their Tengu strategic cruisers explodes. Of course, it would be better if our corporation could ...

Bump and nuzzle

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

I'm kinda hoping the static connection in our neighbouring system is dead. It started wobbling earlier, putting it in the last stage of its life, but I don't know exactly when. The wormhole's collapse will kill the promising constellation I have already scanned, but at least it will offer a ...

Getting a jump ahead of a hauler

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

I'm off for a cruise, see who I bump in to. Resolving the static wormhole and jumping to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system puts me in directional scanner range of a drone, a few cans, but no towers, ships, wrecks. A blanket scan reveals little else, with five anomalies ...

Scanning in triplicate

Monday, November 26th, 2012

Okay, I realise my mathematical error from earlier. It's not that the fuel blocks would not fit in the Orca's corporate hangars, but that the industrial command ship must have had something hiding in one of its enclosures, reducing the amount of available space. I am embarrassed not to have ...

How to perform a blanket scan of a w-space system

Sunday, November 25th, 2012

This post is an update to an earlier and less-detailed guide on how to perform a blanket scan of w-space. The aim of my kind of blanket scan of a w-space system is not to see what signatures are in the system, so that you can pick likely wormholes from the ...

Sharing a connection

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

I'll see if I can stick to my natural habitat of w-space tonight. Popping a salvager in null-sec was okay, but it didn't seem to be much of a challenge for some reason. A second wormhole in the home system makes me optimistic that I can stay out of k-space, ...
