Hi everyone,

I'm a software developer and I've recently come to the conclusion that in order to be... better at what I do, I should have a broader background than just the one language and limited amount of things I ever do at work. So if I'm going to develop in my spare time, I want to develop things that I actually like. I want to make an Eve Online app for the Android market. I know there are already tons out there, but that's ok, I'm just looking for experience and the community can use whatever I happen to create. Does anyone have any recommendations on what to put in an app that may not be out there already? If worse comes to worst, I'll just come up with something that someone else has already come up with, but I figured I'd ask the community first.

By the way, my experience in Eve is not enormous. I've mainly done PvE stuff and played the market a little bit, but I've never gotten into the major part of the game - corporations, null sec, etc. But I think I have a pretty good understanding of how things work.



You know, you are not allowed to profit from it in any way, right? Otherwise, you are connecting to the EVE servers illegally.. right?

So, if it really is just to learn, okay. But if you think you might make a profit... no, no.

I wouldn't start any new development for EVE right now. CCP are currently going back and changing all their EULA related policies on third party apps. Your app might be within the EULA today, but tomorrow it might not be.

If you have to write it anyway, stick to the official API (things like cache scraping have been declared EULA-illegal by sreegs)

Did Sreegs leave CCP yet? I hear he's on the way out.

It's his replacement I'd worry about, whoever that might be.

I haven't heard anything about that, got a source? I don't see any improvement either way. We're going to be suck in perpetual limbo of never knowing what's EULA-legal or not because CCP won't say anything more concrete than "you may or may not be breaking the EULA and we may or may not ban all your accounts and/or applications". Combine that with ninja-edits to 3 year old posts without announcement and this new ridiculous "developer license" designed to protect CCP and you can see why I'm not going to write another app for EVE online again -- and as I said in my previous post I don't think writing apps for EVE Online is a good idea right now.
