That is expected. In all browsers that don't support WebGL, we fallback on static images of the ships.

The static image takes for ever to load. That is the issue.

Does not load at all now.
Refreshing the page causes it to load though so there is a coding issue.

If i dont know something about EVE. I check https://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/ISK_The_Guide

See you around the universe.

FF10 on linux

All that appears for me are the engine flares, no ship model - I can rotate and zoom however.


If it helps, FF 10 error console gives the following message:

Took a quick tour. First impression is: looks great! Good work CCP!
...but now when I can spin ships in the web-browser, what's the reason to log in to EVE...;-)

The website is hugely impressive, congratulations. I makes me want to proudly show it to other MMO players to entice them into EVE.

It even works on my iPhone, with static images instead of the spinning and animation. It also loads quicker than the forums. Brilliant stuff, it deserves to win an award. Is there somewhere it can be nominated?

Houm... the messages meaning that my browser does not support GL or whatever (Maps, ships), should say that my browser does not support GL or whatever, not that i will have a better experience with a newer browser. Opera 11.61 is not an old browser. Sad

Also, there should be a way to tell people that clicking the race name shrinks the ship list (yes, this is how it works ingame... but then this is for noobs, isn't it?)

I agree, a small message like that might be useful, possibly getting people to come back with a different browser to see the spinning ships instead of static images.

A lot of 'shiny' with less information. Nearly all of the chronicles and the scientific articles are gone. Yes, I know there is a fiction wiki, but outsourcing all the primary background gives new players the impression that the background does not matter at all.

Also there is very little info on the races. Yes there are ship statistics but nothing that helps new player choosing their race.

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

Would it be possible in the future to add to the overlays and filters used on the interactive map?

I'd love to be able to browse custom bookmarks out of game, or read fansite articles linked to specific systems.

For example, the great work that Mark726 does over at EVE Travel, or any number of After Action Reports from nullsec conflicts.

I'm not a fan of this new front page. I can't get to the community page, so I don't know what it looks like yet, BUT it is not obvious how we're supposed to get to the devblogs. Also, your News items (specifically the one for the new site) no longer includes those helpful links to the associated feedback threads. The usefulness of the site has been seriously degraded for regular users (though newbies might like all the flash). Everything is essentially hidden behind 3 or 4 clicks of site navigation unless you go straight to the forums.

LOOKS nice, but the usability is horrible!

Took me 10min for searching where to download my patch.exe that i don't have to download 3 times all files to patch all my 3 clients.
Haven't found it on my own, asked a friend where to find it.

Sry but the old version was much better for finding things and navigating throught the whole eve-related stuff, what is A LOT!

Keeping something like the old navigation menue by hoovering over the "EVE Website" button with ALL informations would be great and the bittervets would still find all they need!

Sry, but the only things i need from the official homepage are:
Patches, Forums, DEVBlogs, Account Management, (only once after a major Addon) checking for some nice pictures about new content.
My first feelings are, that all this stuff is hard to get a fast access, so i'll add some direkt bookmarks for future use.

Sry guys but you messed something up a bit in the looks of many old players!

Does this new website have any link to http://community.eveonline.com/careerguide/ (which I use as one link in my signature) ?

"play.eveonline.com" used to have link there, but that site seems to have been deleted.

New to EVE? Don't forget to read: The Manual * The Wiki * The Career Options * and everything else

Are we ever getting direct links from eve gate/forums to the most used player resources like account management, support, bug reporting, patch notes, etc.?? Should we give up on waiting for full forum functionality and bug fixes?

This whole update is aimed exclusively at the prospective client and has jack to do with making the site actually more usable for the paying customers. In a word, Awesome™ is back with a vengeance.

Spell Check Alert

Question 3 in the series of questions for Personality Analysis under the Sand Box tab has a small spelling error.

error in question: "what do your fight for?"

to get to this question you need to:

Q1: What interests you most?
A1: The clash of arms and ideology.

Q2: What is most important in battle?
A2: Pilot initiative and skill.

answer those two questions like so and you will get to the one with the small spell check error.

I totally like this! When I finally understood all I needed as a player was to go on community.eveonline.com it completely conquered me =D

The only problem is I can't see the whole www.eveonline.com site on my netbook screen, it is too much wide.

So, nice work! I'll have fun in turning inside out all the www site when I have time (and on my bigger screen) ;) I actually saw the starmap but I haven't the time to play with it now.

PS: I'm a loyalist! * * The tests are really cool for new players, maybe they'll soften a bit the learning curve =P
