Today we have a new feature, Fitting Warnings, on Singularity and we would like to ask for your help testing it!
The idea with this new feature is to help new and old players improve their fitting skills and help them avoid common pitfalls.
The Fitting Warnings feature analyzes the fitting of your ships and warns you when your fit is off in some way and give you hints on how to fix the issues. The combinations of modules and ships in EVE are near endless, so we’d love to get more eyes on it, have you guys test out your fits and tell us how it’s working or not working for you.
There are 4 new icons in the Fitting window, each of them is only displayed if any of the rules in the corresponding category are broken.
- CPU overloaded
- Powergrid overloaded
- Cargo overloaded
- Missing subsystem for T3 Cruisers
- Invalid modules fitted (for example after rebalance or swapping subsystems)
- Modules not providing bonus (for example if you have a Magnetic Field Stabilizer fit but all your guns are projectiles the Magstab will be flagged as not providing its bonus)
- Mixing turret groups
- Mixing turret sizes
- Mixing launcher groups
- Dual tanked
- Offline modules
- Polarized weapons fitted
- Armor tanking a ship categorized as shield ship
- Shield tanking a ship categorized as armor ship
Each of the icons has a counter of how many of its rules are broken and a tooltip that lists what they are and gives you hint on how you can fix the issue. The problematic modules are also listed, and mousing over them will highlight them in the fitting window.
With this change, we have removed the “Skill mode” in Fitting Simulation. We felt that was a bit of a hidden feature, and instead we have added a new warning icon for the missing skills, and if it’s not visible, you have all the skills needed for the fit. When mousing over the skill warning, the modules for which you are lacking skills are highlighted in the Fitting window
With the skill icon gone from simulation mode, we have moved the “Copy All Skills” feature to be under the “Import/Export” functionality in the lower left corner of the Fitting window.
We’d love to hear feedback from you on this. What is working, what is not working, what other warnings would you like to see, do you feel some rule should belong to a different category, are there some obvious issues, suggestions on what the hint text could say, whatever you want to tell us about the feature
(the tooltip text is nowhere near to being final )
