Since we're talking about Logis.. would it have a point to add a positive effects too like we have EWAR? So you can see incoming reps/transfers?

Just brainstorming..


like the idea, hate the idea of misclicking the icon to lock and shooting my own logi lol, especially since the icons sorta move as new effects add on, they'd have to be different, perhaps a smaller bar of icons above the negative effects icons but with green instead of red, or blue perhaps might be better looking



Well, honestly friendlies should be targetable from the watch list and if done that way show up in a completely different area of the screen to cut down on accidental friendly fire. In other words only boosting modules of the various types (including remote repair) can activate when those "target" icons are highlighted. This would also open up some interesting possbilities elsewhere.

Drone link augmentor only increases the control range. Still debatable if that should be a high slot, more likely a midslot like the tracking stuff and scan res etc.
Then again, it makes sense to take away a slot which could have held a gun as your increasing the range at which you can put out DPS.

Also you forgot Ballistic Control Unit :)

Another small note, (based on Tranq. Sisi is not live yet) Could you make it so I can re-size the Science and Industry window smaller?

I'm using a 27" 2560x1440 screen at 100% and it stays so huge :<

It's only tangentially relevant, but why exactly are killmails (or reports) not public? By public I mean anyone can poll these without any API key.

I agree and making it a low slot item seems really odd. SoniClover, can you tell us your reasoning as to why the drone damage module should be a low slot item? As a side note, I've always wondered why the Drone Link Augmentor takes up a high-slot.

In addition to what everyone else here has said, having it be a medium or a high slot item would open it up for some serious abuse. As a low-slot item, it may be considered as a replacement for a mag stab, gyro, BCU, or heat sink. As a high or medium, it would only add DPS on top of gun mods.

A professional astro-bastard was not available so they sent me.

With the introduction of the new medium and small web drones will the current ones get a buff at all because they are fairly useless atm with the way that the stacking penalty's work :( If the small and mediums were to give even less web % than the current ones then I don't think they would ever be really used over ec-drones or damage drones :(

Here's my 2 cents,

The new kill reports are awesome, i love the amount of intel that can be gained from them I believe this is gonna make it alot more streamlined when gathering intel for the war.
wait wait wait.. no info has been added to the Kill Reports except for the ISK lost..

you can read my dev blog to get more info


So logis still have to fire a shoot with a gun to get on the km ?
yes Cry

I feel bad for all the helpful logi pilots out there
Punkturis PLEASE can't you sneak this into a release lol, the logi pilots of eve would love you even more than we already do.
heh it's unfortunately not a thing for me to sneak in, since that's not a UI changeBlink I hope logi pilots will keep loving me despite that!
This is something we need to address in Crime Watch, so please lobby Team Five 0 to make this happen. Big smile Essentially then it's not recorded right now who assisted those that shot the victim.

Subject to other things we have on the backlog, hence the need for lobbying.

Thanks for the info. I'm never used damage mods and thought they were mid-slot modules for some crazy reason.
