Community Fittings coming to EVE – Join us!

Community Fittings is an experimental crowd-sourced project to create standard ship fittings which will become available in-game.

 

Spreading the experience

EVE players are an experienced and helpful bunch of pilots. The player community has created a large amount of ship fittings which are available on third-party websites and apps. There is one drawback though, these site and projects are not native to the EVE client. Especially for new or casual players, this can be a big hurdle.

Now, we would like to bring standard ship fittings to the EVE client so that everyone can use directly use these fittings via the in-game fitting screen. To that end, we will add a new filter to the fitting window (Community fittings).

We invite you to join us on the EVE Forums and share your knowledge and experience with us.

 

Participate!

Join us on the EVE Forums! We have threads ready, waiting for you. Submit a reasonable good ship fitting that matches the thread description.

Here are the steps in a nutshell:

  1. Go to the EVE Forums – Community Fittings
  2. Pick any available ship fitting thread. The ship, its purpose and restrictions are mentioned in the first post of the thread and the thread title.
  3. Reply to the thread with a good ship fit. 
  4. Add any further explanations to the same post

Please follow the outlined format and don’t discuss other fittings, otherwise the threads will get cluttered very fast and become useless. If you want to explain your fitting, the purpose and why it works well, feel free to do that in your forum post right below your fitting.

You are welcome to submit as many fittings as you would like to!

As you can imagine, there will be many threads and even more fitting suggestions. Our amazing and truly incredible ISD volunteers from the CCL team will assist us by sorting out the suggest fittings and getting everything ready. Without that help, we wouldn’t be able to get this done. Our deepest gratitude for this selfless help.

 

What’s in it for me?

Besides helping your fellow players and besides showing off your amazing EVE knowledge, there is more to gain.

If your ship fitting is chosen and added to the client, you will be named as contributor in the fitting description. Of course, your character name must not violate our naming policy.

Your contribution will become part of EVE!

 

FAQ

When can I start?

The first threads are already available. We will keep you updated as soon as we have added more threads. Please understand that we cannot process all ship fitting threads at once and that we create threads in batches. Keep an eye on the EVE news!

 

What do I do if I spot a bad fitting?

Please do not discuss the fitting quality in the fitting thread. Our excellent volunteers will disregard bad fittings already. However, if you have ideas or suggestions that will benefit this project in general, we would love to hear your feedback in this forum thread.

 

What can I do if someone else copied my fitting?

If we see similar fittings, we consider the first one posted to be the original one. Follow-up posts of that fit will be ignored.

 

Can I submit troll fits?

Nonsense and troll fits will be removed. Posting repeatedly troll fittings will lead to a forum ban.

 

What if a bad fitting has made it into the game client?

While double check the submissions, mistakes can sometimes happen. If the unlikely case happens that a bad fit made it into the client, we can easily correct this mistake. We will keep an eye on the feedback!

EVE Vegas 2017 – An Update After Last Night’s Events

This morning, the EVE Vegas team awoke to the terrible news surrounding the Mandalay Bay attack that occurred on the Las Vegas strip last night.

First and foremost, we would like to offer our deepest sympathies and condolences to the families and friends of those lost during this senseless act of violence, and wish a speedy recovery to those who were injured. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected.

We’re also aware that quite a few EVE Vegas attendees have already arrived in Las Vegas, and we hope that all capsuleers who are already in the city are safe and well.

In times like these, it’s important for communities to rally together and find strength by supporting each other. We’ve had many questions over the course of the last few hours about whether this will affect EVE Vegas.

We’d like to assure all attendees that EVE Vegas 2017 will go ahead as planned, and the schedule will not be interrupted by the events that occurred last night.

We do however advise all EVE Vegas attendees to make sure that they adequately prepare in advance for travel delays, and that they allow additional time in their travel schedule in case of additional security in public spaces and at various transport hubs in the Las Vegas area.

We’re looking forward to seeing you all at EVE Vegas 2017.

EVE Gate Shutdown – Wednesday September 27th

As part of our roadmap to overhaul the web presence of EVE Online, we’ve come to the decision to retire EVE Gate as we move to fully replace the forum and community engagement software that we use.

After the discovery of a critical issue with EVE Gate last week, we’ve decided to bring forward the retirement of EVE Gate to close a vulnerability, rather than invest further time on fixing the issue that could be better spent working to improve out websites in other areas.

On Wednesday (September 27th), EVE Gate will be retired.

This will of course mean that the web based EVEmail access that EVE Gate provides will also be retired on Wednesday, however we are investigating alternative solutions for providing EVEmail access outside the EVE Online client, as we’re aware of how important this access is to the Community.

As part of the retirement of EVE Gate, significant efforts have been put into ensuring that EVE Portal, the mobile app for EVE Online, will be a reliable alternative for out of game EVEmail access going forward.

We’re aware that some pilots have been experiencing issues using EVE Portal, and we hope that these issues have now been resolved so that character status and EVEmail is accessible on your mobile device.

In addition to this, in the coming months we’ll be speaking with the EVE Community and the Council of Stellar Management to prioritise expansion of EVE Portal into a wider ranging companion app for EVE Online, so stay tuned for further information.

If you’d like to discuss this announcement, please feel free to do so here!

Project Discovery Tutorial Video and AMA on r/science Thursday!

Want to know more about Project Discovery and how to contribute to real world science via EVE Online? Check out this newly released video and get to analyzing for in-game rewards and the feelsgoodman benefit of helping the scientific search for planets beyond our solar system!

Also, three members from the Project Discovery team exoplanets will be hosting an AMA (ask me anything) on /r/science tomorrow, Thursday 21st, beginning at 2pm UTC. Wayne Gould (astronomer at the Geneva Observatory), Attila Szantner (founder and CEO of Massively Multiplayer Online Science), and CCP’s Hjalti Leifsson will be on hand for a couple hours to answer questions about the search for exoplanets, the science behind it, integrating citizen science into video games, and the future of crowdsourcing science.

If you are one of the EVE players who have already submitted one of over 38.3 million player classifications of the CoRoT telescope’s light data (peaking at 88,000 per hour!!), you might want to check it out or ask some on-topic questions about Project Discovery-Exoplanets.

A reminder though, that while we’re sure you want to know why your favorite ship isn’t getting buffed, EVE game design questions won’t be covered by this particular group.

Got Swag? Player Content For The EVE Vegas Welcome Pack!

EVE Vegas is so close that over here in Iceland we can already feel the warm Nevada air and taste the delicious drinks!

At EVE Vegas 2017, we’re looking to involve our players more than ever before. We’ve got some kick ass player presented content lined up for this year, and we’re looking at more and more ways that you guys can show off your allegiances and raise awareness of your identities in game.

As part of this, we’re opening the EVE Vegas Welcome pack this year so that alongside goodies from CCP, Alliances and Corporations can pitch in stickers, posters, merchandise, patches, pins, whatever you guys want (within reason!), to raise awareness of your alliance.

If you’d like to drop items like this into the welcome pack, all you need to do is bring them to Vegas and catch up with our volunteers on site before we prepare the welcome packs.

We’ll be preparing 1200 welcome packs for EVE Vegas this year, so that’s the number to keep in mind, if for instance, you want to put one sticker or one pin in every welcome pack.

To get in touch with our volunteers and organize including your stuff in the welcome pack, you can join the EVE Vegas volunteers discord by clicking this link.

You can contact GreyGal, or any of the other volunteers to work on getting your stuff included in the welcome pack.

 

Please be aware that CCP reserves the right to decline anything that may be deemed offensive or otherwise inappropriate for inclusion in the welcome pack.
