With the EVE Online: Lifeblood expansion on 24 October, we will get a nifty new feature: Mining Ledger.
The ledger allows you to visualize mining activities. Additionally to the personal mining ledger, we have a corporation mining ledger.
As with every great expansion, we will get highly helpful and popular “Little Things” quality-of-life improvements. More details in the linked dev post!
Thanks to a massive effort by dedicated players, the Spanish speaking EVE community has now access to some of the best Sci-Fi out there: the profound and intricate lore of EVE Online.
Thank you, DR4GONS and Jijae Chan, very much for eight months of translation work. Everyone, give this incredible effort a round of applause!
Another quick info video from Evocationz Adhera. This time, it is all about the Wolf, the Minmatar assault frigate.
Watch the video and learn about this ship, how to fit it and how to use it in combat.
Engineering Complexes in low-sec space can give you some nice production bonus compared to high-sec complexes.
How can you take advantage of these complexes? Here are some suggestions:
- Blockade runners for small stuff
- Deep space transport with cloak/microwarp drive
- Compressed ore instead of minerals
- Jump freighters
- Outsourced risk via courier contracts
And of course, use scouts!

Another impressive screenshot from Wilhelm Arcturus on Evepics. This time, we see a capital fight with titans on the field at a Fortizar Citadel.
Adan Dimaloun is well-known for his impressive videos. This time, we see the supercapital fight in XWY-YM. This epic battle saw the destruction of 470 billion ISK.
Thanks to Greybill, we can enjoy beautiful double-exposed images which overlay EVE characters and spaceship. Have a look at Greybill’s website and learn how these images were done. Maybe you can do something similar? Be inspired!
