Another shot at a Noctis

Friday, August 29th, 2014

I locate the tower as the nanite paste repairs the remaining heat damage on my modules. As it turned out, I didn't need to overheat my guns to pop the salvager and the silly mobile tractor unit that stole my plunder, but I couldn't have known that in advance. There ...

Two stabs at bagging some plunder

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

That's a lot of signatures. Sure, it's the same number as yesterday, but still. It's a lot of signatures. There's even a new anomaly, my favourite type in the home system, and I think I'll clear it of Sleepers to rake in some ISK. I scan and resolve today's static ...

Almost finding activity

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

It's time to investigate some wormholes. Having successfully ignored a tower trap, my Proteus strategic cruiser is still in one piece and able to reconnoitre through one of two K162s in this class 5 w-space system. One leads to more class 5 space, the other to deadly class 6 w-space. ...

Turning away from a trap

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

No anomalies have sprung up overnight, but four new signatures accompany our static wormhole this evening. They can't all be sites, surely, and I launch probes to scan them hopefully. Then again, an initial blanket scan, which I find to be a good security precaution, shows that two signatures are ...

It's referred to as the scanner overlay and not the 'discovery' scanner for good reason

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Another day absent, even more anomalies brazenly stolen from us. This is an outrage! The perpetrators really ought to have dumped a container with 30% of their plunder at our tower, just as a basic nicety for taking advantage of our system. I normally do, or try to, or maybe ...

Flashing a Mackinaw

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

I just want to check through a K162 before potentially plunging down a long chain of w-space systems, particularly when the discovery scanner will be a mere half-step behind with each jump. I exit the class 6 system to return to our neighbouring class 3 w-space, and warp across to ...

Starting with Sleepers and scanning

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

Oh no! Our anomalies have been pilfered by dirty pirates in the couple of days that I've been absent. The stinky anomalies I wasn't going to clear anyway. And new anomalies have appeared, including one of our favoured type. But, still, it's the principle that matters. Stinkin' pirates! A favoured anomaly ...

Full of false alarms

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

I align my ship away from one wormhole and towards another, AUs distant, that will take me to another class 2 w-space system, but call a full stop before I accelerate in to warp. A final look at my directional scanner before entering warp sees a new ship in this ...

High-sec orange

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

Moving on. Having missed my chance at catching a planet gooer in a silly ship, I head back through one class 2 w-space system, in to and across our home system, and in to another class 2 w-space system. My directional scanner shows me nothing from the wormhole in C2b, ...

Chasing a warp trail

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

I've had no connection to space for a while, leaving me rather floating free, not quite sure what to do with myself. I tidied up my pod a bit, which was empowering, and watched some good films involving robots and cyborgs and other heartwarming subjects. I almost got used to ...
