Judging from my in-game mails, I joined EVE at launch time around 2003 and last played in 2009. I subscribed for quite a while, in fact. I was in a small corporation, mostly high-sec. I own a Raven, an Exhumer, and about 1000 shuttles, or so it seems. I’m not sure why I have so many shuttles. I do have a couple newbish alts, one of whom has more isk than I do for some reason. My main has only about 5M isk. Some questions:
Are my Raven and Exhumer still useful ships? I can’t even fly the Exhumer without going Omega. Apparently I can fly the Raven, but I’m too scared to undock, as I have no idea what I’m doing any more. Maybe I should practice flying around in this “free corvette” the UI mentions?
I’d like to run through the tutorials on my main again, but I’m nowhere near the starting systems. Is it worth doing this? Should I just use one of my alts for it?
I’ve read and re-read the blog posts on the Project Discovery COVID mini-game, and I certainly love the idea of it. Is it really helpful to real-world scientists? Also, is there a way to slice a polygon exactly in half? Whenever I try to do that I just get two overlapping polygons. But one of the CCP blog posts talks about “mirroring” your polygon and such. I don’t know how to do this.
Any suggestions on what I should do to get back up to speed? I’d rather stay alpha for a bit before deciding whether I want to resubscribe.
Many thanks in advance.
