I want to discuss a frustrating activity in Eve and suggest several fixes for it.
The problem: When I am doing PI, I am loading P1 from my hangar to my Epithal and delivering it to the planet. I have 6 different planets on multiple characters and the set of this P1 is the same always. Yet, every time I have to manually pick them, one by one, drug to the ship and type a value. Every time I load PI. For every planet. For every character. Why can’t I do it automatically in some way?
- Include Planetary Commodity Hold into the ship simulation - So I can save a fit for each planet and load the P1 by clicking the “Fit ship” button.
- Implement some sort of “autoselect items in clipboard”. I imagine most people have the calculation for PI in Excel, so this should work. This solution can help some other similar problems, not PI-related.
- Make PI commodities an item that can be saved in Fir Simulation, so we at least can simulate it in some other ship’s cargo hold. Currently, it is impossible.
- Allow simulating the Containers of some sort - clunky solution, but would work.
I do the PI as a main source of income. But these routine actions really repel me from doing it, and as a consequence, from the game. You did a lot of awesome quality-of-life improvements recently, and solving this problem would be a perfect addition I believe.
