I am not sure if this is the right place to post this. But I am wondering if there are any third-party tools, or sites that would track the basic events of an evening playing the game? By this what I mean is something that traces how you move through space, where you have been to and who you might have met on grid. Some of this is probably beyond the EULA but perhaps some information could be traced and recorded?
I know that the game logs do record some information but then it would be nice to make sense of this by drawing it together into a format where it could be used to narrate or tell the story of your evening. It would be even better if we could do this and share our stories and adventures online on a site. One of the huge advantages of Eve as a sandbox is these underlying stories (I think). For me it is the every day things that pod pilots are doing that makes the sandbox fascinating.
There are of course risks associated with giving away your position or your trade routes, or were you like to mine. But these details could be edited using a tool like a blogging system?
I dunno, this might seem a little bit mad, but here’s to wishing there was something a little bit more engaging to read around Eve than simple null block politics or the fact that someone got ganked (again). One of the things that keeps me coming back to the game is the back story I am creating with my characters. I can think of chapters and drama that has happened. This is what makes the game special.
I don’t just travel from a to B for the sake of it I do it to help my corp out, to make some isk in the market (whilst avoiding Gankers), or to go get a ship to participate in PVP.
It isn’t the dramatic events of Eve the get me interested it’s the stories of the everyday things that pod pilots are doing.
I look at the corp that I’m in and I just love to see what people are doing together. Sometimes that’s the story should be told and is currently missing from the meta.
