Hi CCP, I may have an unusual request.
My name is Sergey and I am 28 years old. In 2011, I first met EVE Online, I really liked it, but unfortunately at that time it seemed very complicated and I quickly stopped playing.
In 2014, I became a completely blind person.
At the beginning of 2018, after I had mastered working with a computer a bit using the NVDA Screen Reader program, I started watching EVE Online streams on Twitch.
I began to actively communicate with players, streamers, and as a result I got into the community of players, which helped me to “get involved in the game.”
They helped me put together a small script of the game in which I could log in to the game, and read chats (using a text log) and send messages to them.
Additionally, the players helped me make a special script using the EVE API and Google Sheets so that I can send and receive letters.
Here’s a short interview with me on the stream, in which we discussed the efforts of the player community so that I can play with everyone. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkwhohV3zlM&t=83s).
At first I was surprised by the reaction and help of the community, but then I realized that it was the EVE Online community that made this game wonderful. I am very grateful to everyone who tried to help me immerse myself in the game process, and especially Burenka Ololoev.
I would like to ask you for help so that I can enjoy EVE Online along with other players.
We discussed a lot with the players, and came up with the idea that perhaps the easiest way is to use a special, extended API, which will be accessible by private key only to my account (and for other players with similar problems). It will give access to some of these additional functions, for example:
- get a list of objects from Overview
- select an object, use the Warp, Align, and other and similar functions.
I understand that such an API is perfect for creating a bot, which is why it should be available only to a specific account using a private key.
if such functions were available, a text version of the game client, for example in the form of a Web page, is ready to help implement the EVE Online community.
I am not a master of military affairs; I am closer to mining and processing of ore, production, transportation, trade and other similar processes. Only you can help plunge into the world of EVE Online.
Best regards, Sergei.
