Makes far too much sense!

There are good ships,

And wood ships,

And ships that sail the sea

But the best ships are Spaceships

Note from someone who actually has OCD:

Title should read: "My OCPD said fix this so I did..."

Awesome. 8)

If you really had OCD you'd call it CDO.

Regarding missile names: They were renamed from HAMs to AMs in the recent big missile name change and I believe the only reason the launcher was not renamed along was that till then there was another Assault Missile Launcher (now called Rapid Light Missile Launcher). So this is slightly reversing the change to less confusable names, but of course I can't argue against ham being tasty.

Nice changes overall.

Thank you! I knew it was something along those lines but didn't want to butcher it without knowing for sure.

Hi

First I will declare I am a laser user and not a Missile user!

But riddle me this?

Why change Fire & Forget one of the most commonly known military acronyms out there with a reasonable 1.4 millions hits on Google ( Fire And Forget missile) as meaning an 'Auto-Targeting' missile.

To 'Auto-Targeting' which until you decided to use it for Fire & Forget I never heard of and only has 45,700 on Google ( "Auto Targeting" missile) and the leading hits are all Egosoft's X-Universe game & non-military?

Also F.O.F. uses far less screen space than 'Auto-Targeting' even your example picture has the 'Auto Targeting' missile names running off the screen. so if users want to see the full name they will need to increase the name column width.

If you wanted to change it to anything then 'FoF' might be better as that is the universal short hand rather than the EVE current F.O.F. for 'Fire & Forget'

I was learning MSPaint so you can expect better graphs from me next time.

To my understanding F.O.F. meant "Friend or Foe".

I definitely like the standardization of the items (finally), but I am still a fan of FoF rather than Auto-Targeting.

My reasoning:
FoF (Friend or Foe) indicates that it will hit ANYTHING (in this case, the largest and closest target)
Auto-Targeting indicates that it will auto-acquire a target.....but the name does not suggest what it will target. Some players may think this means only enemies will be targeted in the same fashion of the Auto-Targeter module.

I personally like the longer implant names, labeling them "hull upgrades 03" is pretty damn boring. I don't think as they are now, is confusing or hard to identify, and the new changes to the market groups makes a great deal of sense.
#93 - 2012-07-16 19:33:08 UTC
Anyway you can direct your attentions to the BluePrint section of the market. You guys did a re-organization of the ships and the sub categories they were in. Anyway you could extend that to the blueprints as well?

Sorry if this has been asked and answered before but I'm too lazy to read through the entire thread.
Will the following implants be renamed accordingly ?

Zainou 'Snapshot' FOF Explosion Radius FR-100x -> Zainou 'Snapshot' Auto-Targeting Explosion Radius ATR-100x
Zainou 'Snapshot' Assault Missiles AM-70x -> Zainou 'Snapshot' Heavy Assault Missiles HAM-70x


On the F.O.F definition related post, F.O.F stands indeed for 'Friend or Foe'.

CCP FoxFour since your so awesome at getting stuff done :P can you rub some of that awesomeness off on some of the other devs... like getting them to look into "warping" and make acceleration inside warp faster? Perhaps get someone to add more graphical indications that a ship just started warping (like accelerating into warp, a warp tunnel could form around the ship?, or engines would glow much brighter!?, so you know you should point him before he does)

and tell veritas to make the dev blog he promissed and make prefired modules serversided (so modules like warp disruptors activate instantly after you locked a target, unlike a whole 1 sec later like it does now)?

Hi CCP FoxFour, welcome to CCP and the greater EvE community. Hope you like your new job and wish you long years and tons of fun doing it. Also, thank you for fixing all the inconsistent missile names, those really should not have been left behind. As for renaming the F.O.F missiles to Auto Targeting, I do understand that the naming convention would make things easier for new players but I do hope you will remember us bitter old Killboard admins who have to put up with broken killmails for weeks before a DB update is pushed out. Now, the F.O.F missiles are rarely used so its no big deal but any time a popular item undergoes a name change a lot of KB admins begin to cry. So next time please think of that under-appreciated group. Thanks.
