Interbus have been busy making a new system to explain the ships available for capsuleers to fly. They call it The Interbus Ship Identification System! If that doesn't tell you everything you need to know, CCP Arrow has you covered. The ISIS is a tech tree system to identify ships in EVE Online, which will give a clearer picture of what you should strive for in regards to spaceships.

Head on over here to read it.

The ISIS is a feature coming in EVE Online: Rubicon on November 19th. Tell us what you think!

So you can still have Mastery V while ship skill itself is left at 1?

Can we have those new ship icons also in overview and maybe as new brackets?

Looks like CCP Arrow has everything pointed in the right direction.

Yes. This is intentional. As the Mastery level in that case is meant to be a hook to encourage you to unlock the group. "Hey you can already fly these ships really well, why not unlock the group?"

Feel free to poke me on: Twitter

Shouldn't it be called ISSIS then Interbus Ship Support Identification System?

Also I'm a sad panda that we have no way of showing off the most terrible skill in game to train, Fleet Command V as the whole Leadership Certificate tree is gone.

i didn't know the absolution had a 1000% damage bonus Big smile

i love that show info tab on the absolution though please implement this asap

T3's need to be versatile so no rigs are necessary ... they should not have OP dps and tank

ABC's should be T2, remove drone assist, separate HAM's and Torps range, -3 HS for droneboats

as i tested it on SISI i was wondering if you could just replace the "show info" tab with the "ship info bubble" content and just attach the description text below it. It is clearly a cleaner and better representation of the same information.

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

And change the NPC little-medium-large crosses for those new icons at least, it would be much better NPE for newbies. Those crosses very disappointing.

Will the certificates get fixed?

Some of the new ones are still way to general!
E.g. 1: resource harvesting including all ore mining, ice harvesting and gas cloud harvesting.
E.g. 2: Capital Remote Armor Repair Skills and Shield Transport include the Logistics Skill, which is no use for Rorquals.

I will have a look at example 2. Example 1 will have to wait a bit, please see this reply.

One thing that struck me is that there could be a stronger differentialtion between the icons for the Industial vs combat ships, Take the industial icons and truncate the top off the triangle and you have something more distinctive.

Thanks and more important:

Well done! Most of the certificates I came along are very useful already!

It is so sad to see you removing the ship passing by in the background when clicking the preview button. It was really appealing to begginers from the feedback I got on the Rubicon preview video in my Youtube Channel.

Also, since it was already implemented, why removing it ? The absence of a nebula background does not justify this imo.

Edit : You could also move guristas down on the second line, and perhaps even increase the size of the four factions + ore icons.
The fact of having the four factions and ore together is logical, adding guristas to the same line isn't.

Concerning pirate ships, having two lines of skills makes sense, but having the line on the top matching the faction on the top would be more intuitive. (Currently for Guristas Caldaris are on top but the five squares for the five levels of skills are reversed)
