Yes killmails will appear in the API like all other killmails. There are type entries in the SDE with name / description etc and (most) types have icons on the image server.

We don't have a static export for the dust game specific data (it is called Catma, the opposite of Dogma) about these items though, I believe that is in the works though.

you can't find them realistically, unless someone from dust told you where they happen.

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

Excellent! Next question, are we able to look up dust character id's by name? Or obtain a name with the dust character id? Has an API been opened up for any of that yet?

Your kilmail examples so far have only shown vehicles. Will Infantry kills also generate mails?

Also, from the wiki:

Quote:
Does the turret's damage multiplier effect the damage inflicted?

The only thing that affects the amount of damage done right now is the number of turrets used to perform the strike. The damage modifier, the meta/tech level of the turret, and even the type (blasters vs. railgun f.ex.) do not affect the amount of damage done.

Is this still the case, and if so will it be changing any time soon?

Every time you post a WiS thread, Hilmar strangles a kitten.

Well bugger that then.

I am sure they will get there eventually. Whats to be seen is if there will be any players left by that time.

Thanks, didn't need that coffee anyway! Lol


Are dust bunnies still in full control of the orbital strike, or will we be able to pull a Future Vision anytime soon?

Add the ability to for others to drop off dusties to appear in the same (console) game, and all hell breaks loose.

I posted a thread outlining a very similar concept on the DUST forums. Any feedback/insight would be appreciated.

Cool. This is a nice step in the right direction.

Just to be sure:

We don't actually get an overlay displaying the DUST chat in a new window right?

It seems that the top right part is cropped from a DUST client (showing how the interaction works on both ends).

So, when can we missile pilots expect to be able to join in on these orbital strikes?

As soon as you train [insert race] small weapon I. Which should take something like 3 minutes. If you for some reason don't have the skill from character creation. (Do Caldari start with missiles or hybrids nowadays?)

Second best would be letting our ships to descent low enough into planet's atmosphere to be able fire at bunnies directly.

if you are part of a militia in Factional Warfare, when you actually complete an orbital strike in the warzone, we will reward you with a tidy sum of 3,000 Loyalty Points (LP)


Does that mean non-FW pilots can finally take part in Orbital Strikes as well? Or was that just unfortunate wording?

No one in their right mind would hold a killmail more valuble than something that can actually be traded for ISK…. Right?!


Yes, that is right. A 'killmail' is nothing more than statistical data it's completely worthless as an incentive or reward.

Ok... The pace is slow, but slightly progressing? Can we actually see the Carnage below yet? KMs are cool but if all I get is just numbers of damage on my screen who the frak cares. I wanna see things go BOOM BOOM with vehicle & bodies flying about with the impact of my barrage. Then maybe I'll check it out... Otherwise it's pure lackluster and yawn. Also, why would I have to be in FW to pull a trigger... Lame. It is low sec afterall... Gimmie a suspect timer If I'm not playing by the strict rules.

Best thing which may happen with Dust is re-assigning its development team to EVE and Incarna / WiS in particular. "Personal exploration" shooter mini-game in EVE would be much more interesting than present mini-game with loot spill.

That sounds AWESOME.

This. I haven't bothered with orbital strikes until now for this very reason.
