(Version 2 of this post)
It has been over five weeks since I had posted – possibly an inauspicious new record. I hadn’t noticed.
I’m still logging into EVE once a week or so but doing little other than playing the skin collecting game. I have on several occasions really wanted – needed – to be able to do some mindless mining. The reality is however you need to pay attention when mining now, and that defeats the purpose of using it to relax.
I noticed that someone has picked up the EVEMon project and moved it off the old API. I haven’t tried it – but it is available here if anyone wants to give it a go:
(Edit.. changed link from current version on GitHub to the EVE Forum post that gets updated to the latest version as it is released:)
I am sporadically playing World of Warships. I tend to play a ship until I win its first battle of the day – which gives an XP bonus, then move onto the next ship. A consequence of that is I tend to end up with a large collection of ship lines all at the same Tier. At the moment that tier is VIII. I have been stuck at this point for a very long time – generally only around half way to Tier IX. To make matters worse – I find myself in Tier X matches more often than not, and even when I play at my very best, I have very little impact on the finally result.
I am only getting to Dungeon and Dragon’s Online once a month or less. I am meant to have Wednesday Night off to play, but my wife scheduled an activity for my Daughter on that evening.
Most of my gaming now is a session or two a day of Hay Day and SimCity on the iPad.
The main reason for this lack of free time is that I spend the vast majority of my days as a taxi service for my two kids – School, Karate x2, Soccer x5, Roller-skating, Youth Group and so on, plus doing all the shopping, cooking, cleaning and the myriad of other tasks that keep a household running. For those unfortunate enough to read my earlier whinging version of this post, you would know I am not particularly happy with my circumstances at the moment.
EVE – even if I could find something new and interesting to do – just can’t get a look in.
