Even with the new drop box, I can't hit diddly with my missiles.

Wont somebody think of the calculator makers !!!
I'll step up and admit that I am guilty of implementing this change that might affect calculator makers all over. Oops

Incidentally, I am a big fan of calculators, especially the EVE one and I regularly fight off people that want it to die and fix it when it needs some love. So I sincerely hope that it won't ruin the lives of calculator makers, I kind of like my life.


It's okay, CCP karkur. You gave us blue orders in the market. We'll love you forever for that. (Speaking of, I think I still owe you a pair of soiled pants for that. You ruined them. RUINED!)

Whether or not you win the game matters not.  It's if you bought it.

Yeah its stupid to make important information like what your range is easily available. Because a space ship would never have that type of information available to the pilot.


Do you mean like a Star Trek spaceship that has a normal douchebag captain? Or an advanced internet spaceship that houses an immortal pilot whose genius is beyond comprehension. Because the latter would not have any need for a distance calculator.

You thought Tom was trolling but now your fallacy has been revealed.

That's mostly because those electronic mathematical devices are manufactured in countries where dog is regularly on the menu.

Now newbie pilots will be murdering players with 100m skill points left and right because CCP is catering to the NEW players, when will this money driven madness end?

New Tool tips for missiles:

Previously required a stunningly simple twelve (12) step process, general understanding game mechanics, and a sense of familiarity with the UI. This procedure was EASILY explained in a forty-five (45) minute long E-UNI class, what is E-UNI going to do now teach them to boil eggs?

1) Open Ship fittings.
2) Right Click on module
3) Show info
4) Select Attributes Tab
5) Scroll down to stats
6) Open calculator
7) Copy index for Maximum flight time
8) Paste into calculator
9) Press multiply
10) Copy Flight Velocity
11) Paste into calculator
12) Press Enter

My personal calculator needs three things to work.

1. Pencil
2. Paper
3. Brain.

Unfortunately, I only have 1 and 2.

This is not a signature.

Technically, that is incorrect. Missiles do not quite fly their true calculated distance like that, requiring some acceleration time and getting on track, in addition to the fact that as the target moves, while not neccessarily getting any farther, it increases the potential distance the missiles have to travel, thus, if you have 85km range on your missiles, and are firing at a vagabond circling you at say, 75km, it's perfectly reasonable to expect your missiles not to travel far enough to even hit.

7/10 Trolling attempt, hurt by lack of real knowledge about the mechanics.

The attempt is good... this is exactly how the "max range" is calculated (even though the range is a little bit less because of accleration) Smile
