    Or they might be called Dreadnoughts.

  • At a loss as to why I'm a Criminal and -4.9 status in EVE Communication Center

    Security status is basically your CONCORD standings. Well, it is your CONCORD standings.



    iirc, this is no longer the case. used to be, but isn't now.

    because people used to be concorded in concord space, with low sec status.

  • Can you still add a video to CQ? in EVE Communication Center

    If only we could "pipe" streams into the CQ... but we don't have a CSM for that.

    If it's a choice between piping streams into CQ, or having stuff happen in space, I know which I'd push for, and which I'd push to be smothered in its sleep.

    Gameplay in CQ I could possibly get behind. Just watching steams? nope.

    Because it would be such a bad thing to have more customizable corporate or alliance level information / content available ingame in an at least somewhat immersive way...

    I don't use CQ anymore, because honestly, there is nothing useful to find / do besides sitting on the couch.



    Oh, I'm not saying it wouldn't be nice. Just not nice enough to dedicate the developer time to, instead of something else. As I thought was clear in what I was saying.

  • Is there an old forums archive? in EVE Communication Center

    I think Eve search still has the content too.

  • Is ti blueprint copies invented for scammers? in EVE Gameplay Center

    You know that copies aren't useless, right? There are solid uses for them.

    Invention is one. Another is to help spread the costs for the original blueprint. For when someone wants to make something, but not spend the isk on an original blueprint. Or for security, so you don't risk the original (which can be worth billions) but instead only make copies available.

    Like many complaints about features in Eve, yes, they can be use for (really obvious) scams. But the valid uses are solidly worth it.

  • billboard expiration? in EVE Communication Center

    They should be leaving soon.

  • [December] Defender Missiles in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Well, defender missiles now target bombs. automatically. So there is a PDS. just needs activated.

  • The CSM – Council of Sov. Management. in EVE Communication Center

    You consider going to Iceland for 4 days of meetings a vacation? I think we have very different standards.

    You shouldn't worry about your income if being a popular 3rd party developer is not its primary source. Though I know we're grateful for it, nobody actually asked you to do what you do. If it's causing you to worry, perhaps you should give your health a higher priority.



    ...

    As in, 'being a developer isn't my income source. I have to work for it.'

    Thankfully, it's gameplay I enjoy. The comment was entirely a response to someone who was (possibly. It may not have been directed at me. it can be read different ways) saying that I made my money off of referals, rather than in game.

    worry was the wording from the original comment.

  • April 6: CSM 12 election results are announced at EVE Fanfest during in EVE Communication Center

    A dev blog is coming, it's just been delayed by a number of factors, including the regular illness which hits CCP after Fanfest. (Bring people from all over the world together, and you'll have people getting sick from varients of diseases their immune system doesn't have antibodies for. Add in the drinking, low sleep and poor nutrition, and it's worse)

    The new members haven't been fully brought in yet (NDAs needing signed, etc etc) but that's in the process of happening.

    We're all available through our regular channels to talk to already Smile

    , nor are they popular third-party developers or streamers who do not have to worry about income given their stream of referral income.



    Just for reference, if the referral income bit was including me:

    Nope, I make _very_ little in game off being a third party dev. Every so often I have someone kicking over a couple of hundred million, but instances of this are few and far between.

    And when I have a newbie using my referral code, the plex (or the isk from the sale of the plex) goes to them.


    Out of game, I'm spending more on the servers, than I get back. By about an order of magnitude.

    So yes, I need to worry about my income.

    There are so many people living in high sec, low sec, wormhole, etc. who play the game casually and don't keep up with space politics and they NEVER will. That's not why they play. But their interests should still be equally represented because we need them to keep a healthy population in the game and they pay just as much as everyone else to play this game.

    Remember this is not real life. It's a game. It's not analogous to not voting in a democracy because that effects your real life. This is a hobby and we shouldn't expect people to put the same time into it as real life elections.


    Maybe I'm not as casual as I think I am. I quickly looked over the candidates statements and chose some who I felt aligned with what I do in game (which is not null sov - too casual for that). From recollection, 5 of my choices made it on to CSM.

    I do have one question, who are the people who don't vote and who need representation?



    I have a follow up for that question. How do you represent people who don't engage?

    (The silent majority is great. They don't complain when you put something in their mouth.)

    Try installing the 32 bit libraries. They should be available.

  • 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display in EVE Communication Center

    biggest problem you'll run into is that eve doesn't handle huge resolutions particularly well. Be prepared for small text.

  • Fanfest AAR in Council of Stellar Management

    tbh, it's also in the wrong place. I _should_ have put it in the out of game meetings one.

  • Why no capships in high-sec? in EVE Communication Center

    Differences in space are a good thing. It's not a progression mechanic, it's to give you different choices in different places.

    Like Bubbles. Why no bubbles in lowsec? It's explicitly to make space different.

    And your 'sandbox' argument misses the whole point of a sandbox; a relatively common mistake. It's not "I can do whatever I want, wherever I want". It's "here are a bunch of tools and rules, have at it."

    Wrong. CCP decided which systems are tradehubs by disallowing citadels in them. Hek is allowed citadels so obviously it was deemed not a hub by CCP.


    Wrong, we decided the tradehub positions by seeding them. When CCP many years later, introduced citadels they made some restrictions in some system, to avoid getting 300+ citadels in Jita for example. But a tradehub is no where defined by allowance of citadels, but by tradevolume by which Hek is a tradehub.



    This.

    Hek has the fifth highest number of sell orders, close to that of Rens, and half that of dodixie. Buy orders are the same.

  • Wormhole industry Indexes in EVE Technology and Research Center

    I'm afraid not. hmm. I'll suggest something (being able to retrieve your _current_ system indexes, with an authed endpoint) but I don't forsee it happening quickly.
