EVE Online: New Window, New Features

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,581MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

The EVE Online blog has been updated with a new post called "Improvements to the Fitting Window" packed with news about ways players can check on the damage output of their ship.

Although keeping this vital information for ourselves for all those years (well, you had already figured this out with third party tools hadn’t you) might sound like a big joke, there were actual technical reasons for the delay, but that technical debt has now been paid in full with the introduction of something we call “Client Side Dogma”, which will be covered in full detail in a later blog. The gist of it is that it’s now much easier to correctly display how values are affected by skills, ships, implants and/or modules in the EVE client, which opens up the doors to a lot of cool (and in some cases way overdue) things.

    Pretty cool I suppose.   I guess it's sort of like integrating a peice of EVE fitting tool inside the game on the fitting window.     Still, I imagine many players will still use EFT as they can get the same information (and more) without actually having to buy and fit the modules first.    

    Another tiny step by CCP, but at least it's inching in the right direction.   Inching.....  slowly.

    Wish they would stop working on a better spreadsheet, and start working on making combat more exciting. In most ships (pretty much all of them) you do nothing but start up an orbit (or whatever you like to do to get your transversal up) and turn on your modules. Then spreadsheets and a random number generator determine the winner.


    It's not how I envisioned a space battle after years of watching star wars, and playing awesome games like freelancer.
