Our team didn't really do the average market price stuff we just stole it and used it. However we've been discussing to putting the isk value into the killmail "blob". In my opinion the price of the item when it was blown up is more relevant than what it is now but maybe that's just me.

Just take a "snapshot" when the kill is gained. You're right, there's no reason for that value to be continually updated

The kill reports on the first Dev Blog looked much better. http://community.eveonline.com/devblog.asp?a=blog&nbid=28542 I liked how you could see where in the system the person died and how it showed the layout. Plus it seemed like the images and fonts are much smaller / more compact.

it's because those are made in photoshopBlink

CCP Sharq first draws up fantasy UI and then we implement it as well as we can

It looks terrific. It would be great if this ended up taking over the 3rd party killboards. Think about having access to all accurate information from in game and eve gate. Hopefully it is in work to allow you to see any person, corp, or alliances combat log.

I want CCP Punkturis to have my weird looking space goat babies. <3 All the awesome UI work upto and including Kill reports.

With the fit saving feature will you be able to view and save the fits from the involved parties or just the poor sap that got blown up?

Because as the poor sap that does get blown up a fair bit that sort of information would be another useful way get some pvp fits. And it would help me/new players/new to pvp players figure out what works against what etc etc

Any chance to get a real raw killmail format ? the actual text one is meh ( xml, json, whatever, you choose, but put those damn ids please)

What about a report at a corporation or alliance level ? (linkable, etc..)

What about a battle summary taking into account standings ?

Another thing that strikes me right now that I think a lot of pilots would appreciate - maybe a "save as png" option from the drop down upper left corner?
Actually this would be nice having as a general option in almost all windows, e.g. in the context menu of the title bars.

Looking for more thoughts? Follow me on Twitter.

According to another devpost, currently, killmails do not contain that location information, however, they are looking into the possibility of adding it

When can we expect changes ( Killreports ) regarding SDing while in combat or within a Forcefield ? Any news on that ?

Like the changes, there is something I would like to see again though:

When killmail where actually mails there was this awesome moment during a fight when your mailblox went blincking because you just had a final blow,
is it something we could have again? I mean just the character sheet blincking would be great imho (+ a notification?), don't know if other people would like that.

Please, pretty please, add an XML version of the killmails, which are also available on the API.
killboards need exact information on the kills, and with your recent renaming-sprees, you're doing nothing but braking all our killboards. Just give us an XML version of the kills, with itemIDs included. After that there'll no more renaming madnesses, no more broken killboards because of this, and even kills might be a lot more consistent in the KB databases.

And another idea. Could you somehow show assists on people's killreports? We're sending considerable time on getting the kill, and quite often the guy having the final blow is either AFK or not having an API linked to the killboard, which is a major pain. Or both. Also, it'd be awesome if i could see in my ingame kill history my participation in fights.

Is there no way to simply tag a ship destruction with a time? Then when the kill reports are generated in the batch, it just reads the timestamp from the death and includes it in the kill report when the batch goes out. Less of a "timestamp when the kill report was generated" and more of a "kill report just includes a death time stamp"
We have exact logs of when stuff blows up, but not in the killmail system. So we can add a timestamp there, and it's not rocket science, but we will have to add that timestamp everywhere that data is manipulated. It's just a lot of work and we are wondering what the gain is, since currently we display it in seconds but that's the creation time of the killmail and not when the event happened. Note that killsmails used to be actual EVE Mails and the timestamp was the sending timestamp. It still is.

It's already available (and has been for a long time). See: http://wiki.eve-id.net/APIv2_Char_KillLog_XML

Instead of kill reports I'd like the name to me starship murder notification.

will there also be "Battle Reports" like on killboards with linked kills?

Awesome stuff



My idea from some time ago: add reppers, tracking boosters, cap transferrers and so on to killmails. This must be possible because these low lives already get aggression against anybody who has aggression towards the assisted ship. Why doesn't this get to the killmails? It would be great to see the assistance in a battle report, on top of the dps.

Even better would be that also ganglinks give the same aggression when they assist ships like above, but that's maybe for another thread.
