Did you guys make it so in the Captain's Quarters if you double click your ship in the hangar floor (not in ship spinning) that it opens the cargo bay, and is right clickable?

I don't remember that being that way.

Where I am.

How about the ability to link alliances in the chat window like you can character, items, systems and corps with a right click?? Omg that has to be easy...please do it!

Couple of questions:
- Will plotting routes with the autopilot now include jump bridges?
- Will it be possible to reconnect to drones even if you leave system (or dock in a station) and come back? What about carriers - can they reconnect to fighters off-grid?

Sorry, autopilot routes will not include jump bridges. I looked into what that would take briefly and decided that it fell a little too far outside the scope of what our team was trying to tackle.

Reconnect to drones requires you to be on-grid with the drones in question. You can reconnect after leaving system, docking, re-logging or otherwise abandoning them... the only caveat is that you are in the same ship that launched them to begin with.

THIS is the WINNINGEST dev blog in a long time.

I am one of CCPs harshest critics, but this is great stuff.

[u]The nerfs to supercaps will cause more super pilots to join the largest alliances who can properly "support" their deployment, further concentrating firepower/wealth in EVE. The end result will be fewer "fun" fights, and will hurt EVE in the long run.[/u]

the forums are crapping out on me. must be because of how awesomely ridiculously winningly epic this devblog is. imagine what would happen if we had these guys on for a whole development cycle of an expansion. maybe we'd even get a useable D-scan.

Oh my god this is awesome. It really feels like CCP is putting all steam behind FIS with this expansion. I love the freedom given to each individual developer to fix little things, too. I doubt any other developer would give this much freedom to its workforce. It's exactly the approach that makes the most "sense" to me... the kind of thing you'd do if you could allocate programming tasks for the playerbase.

Thank you CCP!

additional: I was listening to Genesis - Land of Confusion while reading the devblog so it was even more awesome

Something good (this team) obviously came out of the World of Darkness project. :)
