Each of us has ever experienced using a direction finder.
This device seems to us so ordinary and simple that we do not attach much importance to how much this is a powerful and useful tool in the world of EVE online.
But what if we take a closer look at the details?
We all know what a great variety of ships are used in the New Eden, each of which is unique in its own way.
How about a direction finder? How much would the game process change if each type of ship had its own characteristics in radio equipment?
Let’s imagine: a research frigate traveling around the world of New Eden uses a direction finder with a range of 24 AU . What do you think? Would this be a worthy bonus for a ship with very little protection? Undoubtedly, having a more powerful radio equipment, the capsule can protect itself from unexpected guests long before they even realize that a small boat is engaged in research.
Imagine the situation with you when you fly on a large warship with many rocket launchers surrounded by force fields. Due to the strong interference of the on-board systems and the active swap of the shield, it should be concluded that the sensitivity of your radio equipment is reduced. The direction finder now works only in the radius of 5.5 AU . Yes, and why, such a heavily armed ship to worry over long distances.
You feel how the mechanics of the game have already changed with such a seemingly small tool as a direction finder.
Write to me what you think about this and how you think how deep the space of New Eden seemed to you, having such a difference between the classes of ships EVE Online
