@crwbot Yeah, I felt like the most positive things I could measure were my wallet income and damage repaired when flying logi ships - but the latter doesn't show up on any scoreboard or killboard

Third day with my new Windows laptop and after a few initial hiccups, this thing is getting way comfy

@randomgeek Yeah, you can build a lot of objects in space these days - manufacturing facilities, shared space ports, territory claim markers. Most of it works to give some corp benefit while serving as a targets for other corps to grind down.

@randomgeek Probably Minecraft is a bit of a model for cooperative creation, but not sure how that would map to Space Capitalism [tm]

@randomgeek Yeah, I dunno. That's probably why I haven't made it myself. Well, and also I'm lazy

@randomgeek I do also think the fabric of the game filters for terrible behavior at times though.

@craigmaloney Yeah, that was another thing I liked about how I was playing EVE: Found a kind of undemanding niche, casually supplying ships & equipment to demand but not having to actually carve out time to fly in fleets (or else)

@randomgeek Yeah, I got Elite Dangerous too... but sometimes it was fun to do the ~market PVP~ on EVE and work through the logistics to supply things to other real players

I kind of wish there was a space game like EVE that allowed for piracy & scamming, but also rewarded building up and positive action - not just as a means to the end of grinding down someone else's work. Maybe that's not fun for enough folks

Like, I've really enjoyed poking at trade & hauling & manufacturing & the occasional hilarious drunk fleet - but then my corpmates start getting edgy and being lolnazis and I cancel my sub.

Yeah, I know Harden The Fuck Up and all that - I don't mind losing ships & merchandise but the edgelord shit in my own corps gets so tiresome & boring

Every now and then I consider getting back into EVE Online and then I remember that the game filters for roleplaying as a sociopath massivelyop.com/2017/05/24/eve

Bingeing season 2 of Sense8, and I swear there's been at least one thing in every episode that's made me tear up

While I was sound asleep, my soon-to-be replaced Mac laptop crashed at 4am, restarted itself & apps. Including a web video that, y'know, didn't at all make me think someone was in the house.

@craigmaloney yeah, probably not :/ got a mozilla all hands coming up that will eat my brain

I have discovered a tool called the "Basin Buddy" - pray that you never need it.

Hmm... tempted to abandon all my efforts to poke at HTML5 based games for now and switch to Rust

@Alamantus I used to really like it. But then we moved to a neighborhood with no pokestops for miles, so that puts a damper on things
