Will kills currently in the system (ie, all pre-Inferno kills) be viewable in the new KR format after Inferno launches?


yes but without the total loss value

Is there any plans to show each module price in the kill report and not just the final total? It would be nice to see the difference in the values in items dropped versus items destroyed.

Also ya since this is a report now and not a kill mail, any chance everyone who is on the report can get it added to there list of kills?


it's something we want to do but is out of scope for what we're doing now, also we don't have too much timeSad

I can now drag kill reports to chat on my local and the other pilot on my local can open it, it's pretty cool!

This feature needs "pay clone funerals"-button and "i'm sorry about your loss"-email template.

Apart from the trolling I wanted to leave my "thank you"-comment about another excellent feature enhancement.
In fact if I was CCP's website developer, I would replace all "POST"-buttons with more friendly big letter-like images:

ccpccpccpccpccpccpccpccpccp
ccp Lol THANK YOU xoxoxo ccp

Think about it.

Regarding why it would be nice to have the Seconds on the Kill Report:

Two requests:

1) For killmail time, please go to seconds, I think this one should be reasonable?
2) I've been told this is less reasonable, but having X,Y,Z coordinates of where in the system the kill took place would be awesome. Give us that and I'm confident the players will find amazing things to do with it.

I like it a lot better than the current killmails though!


why do you need the seconds? I'm just curiousBig smile

the x,y,z stuff is also something we don't have available yet but maybe sometime in the future


There's battle report mods for killboards that will show a battle timeline. I just think it would be more interesting if these were more accurate. In large fleet battles a lot of ships can die in 60 seconds. Plus, why not?

Here's hoping for the x,y,z, and logistics :(

I disagree instant updating killboards is bad, if neither of the killer or the victim choose to post a killmail its their choice.


It's not up to you it is up to CONCORD and the Insurance companies. There are regulations in place for you to receive your insurance payout.

get out of here


SiSi is where you go to have real (to the death) practice fights with players you're friends with. Tranquility is for killmails (OR KILL REPORTS), get it right.

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"

One of the bitter points of a good bittervet is the realisation that all those SP don't really do much, and that the newbie is having much more fun with what little he has. - Tippia

there's no ETA on that yet, sorry! but it's something we really want in the futureBig smile


Please make this a top priority.

At least put a flag in the system for RR.

So we can expect the Genolution CA- implants, Michi's, Akemon's, whatever other implants are currently missing from the market to be added as well?

are the items in the killmail right click "view in marketplace" accessible? how about ability to drag the fit somehow straight from killmail to market quickbar? :)

This is definitely something that we (Team Five-0) want to get done. It won't be part of the initial Inferno release, but could happen later in the year, along with some other tweaks to self-destruct.

Getting xyz coords on the kill is also on our list. I've seen some nice mockups of what could done on killboards with this information, especially when it comes to producing a 'timelapse' display of a particularly spectacular fight. I want to give you the data to make this happen.

Which leads me to increasing the precision of timestamps to include seconds: This isn't straightforward due to the reports being generated in the background in batches. This is why there is sometimes a short delay where everyone in fleet is asking 'Who got the mail?' for up to a minute until it gets processed. It isn't impossible for us to make this happen, but it also isn't as simple as just adding a seconds column to the timestamp. The batching means there's always an inherent error of +/-60s, and that is what needs to be resolved.

If x/y/z coords and seconds were added to the kill reports, would it possible to add this timelapse feature into the game client ie. you look a particular war report and then click button "watch battle" and what happens then is that on the screen that's inside captain's quarters (or a separate UI window) the client generates a timelapse video on the fly from those kill reports that belong to that war report - call it strategic timelapse / strategic report or something like that... There could be also a feature where you could sell/buy these strategic views to/from concord/corps etc.

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?

that would be nice if these damn forums allowed us to post pictures instead of links. CCP should be striving to keep us here on their forums, not having us to visit external sites to view battle reports and such

Would it be possible for everyone appearing on a kill notification receive an in game copy of it, versus only the person landing the finishing blow?


If you store the "killmail", oh i mean kill report, in a separate database, it becomes just a matter of links distribution doesn't it CCP? is it possible to be done???

Also, how about Export fit to XML for use in other programs?
