CCP, please ensure that the exact position of the modules on the fitting screen is also saved and applied to the multi-fit ships. Please also fix this for regular (single) fitting while you're at it.

Some people like to min/max the overheating mechanics by fitting the modules in a specific order and not just puke the modules on any which way. This is currently not possible while using the regular "fit ship" (I didn't test it yet for multi-fit).

The exact position is stored in the fittings.
I just fixed a defect that had to do with not respecting the empty module slots when importing from clipboard, but apart from that I don't know of any issue with keeping the exact positions of modules.
Please file a bugreport if you have any other issues than the empty module slots Smile

Dear CCP,

Props. Could I propose that this new feature, which allows you to fit the same fitting to multiple ships at the same time, be called 'Multifit'?

Multi-Fit. Plz use this name.

I multibought 10 ships last night. Then I used Multi-Fit to fit them. Worked perfectly. Got it all done in about 15 seconds. Multi-Fit even named the ships according to the fitting name in the stored fittings screen. Renaming ships after fitting them for practice has been a pita. So glad for this feature. It was fast and accurate. No complaints.

Update:
  • we have changed it so if you don't check the 'fit rigs?' checkbox, the rigs will go to your cargo hold. This also applies to single fitting, if you answer the popup question with a 'No'. This should be available Sisi within the next few days.
  • we added the little icon in the 'View fitting' window, and you can access the 'Multifitting' feature from there, so no need to save the fitting

I'm not encouraging people to do this or anything, but currently it is possible to import fits with stuff in the cargo. This is not supported and those items do not show up in the fitting, but as it stands, when the fitting is applied, the items will be moved to the cargo. This is not intended, so I can't guarantee that it will always work, but currently it does (unless our changes impacted that).
So as far as I know (i haven't tried it yet), you could bulkfit your shuttles using one of those fits.

That being said, we have been talking about supporting modules/items in the cargo (in a bit limited way), but that work has not started yet.


We already fit our shuttles using this way, not sure why lelob thinks we individually add the skillbooks in. I know you said it's not supported but this doesn't work on rigs. It will import 1 but no more, even if you change the qty to 2 on the xml. if the rigs could be fixed so they import using this workaround i'd be so happy. If not then who cares, you've made everyone in the NBI super happy. Thanks so much :D


well screw me I was doing skillbooks individually :(

1 funny thing happened, i wanted to fit 30 ships, hit multibuy, saw a 1 in the number of orders box while i was expecting 30 for 30 ships so i changed it to 30 and bought enough for 900 ships.

The tool calculates correctly how much you need so there is no need to change the amount of orders, i think its a good idea to just not show the number of orders box when opening multibuy from the multifit tool.

tested it a few times


after fitting the ships, are all the modules that should be online online and those that should be offline offline? (due to skills or CPU/power requirements)
YES

are all the ships correctly named?
YES

if the fitting failed, was the ship it failed on renamed as expected?
IT DID NOT FAIL

do all the ship look to be correctly fit?
YES

while bulkfitting, can items being used for fitting be removed from the hangar?
You can drag them but it gives a wa rning and they are not moved

does the bulkfitting window give you the correct info?
YES

A little request. Do not throw the bad fit exception in case it's caused by inability to put additional charges to cargohold because it's full. Or, better yet, fix fitting charges.

Explanation:

Say we have a fit in a fitting tool that has charges loaded into modules (most noticeably cap boosters).
And the said fit also includes cargo contents. With cargo being full.

When you import it into eve, charges loaded into modules drop into cargo, and the saved fit becomes overloaded on cargohold.
If you try to multifit it, it throws bad fit exception on each step, renames the ship to bad fit and drops some excessive charges that could not be loaded (typically cap booster charges).

Thanks for much for adding this.

I used the multi-fit feature on sisi last night. I have one more request, which would make it perfect for me.

When you import a fit, you're locked into using the name of the imported fit, and I'd like to be able to change it in the view fitting window before using the multifit feature. To explain better, this was the procedure I used:

1. Import a fit from EFT, let's say the fitting is named "Steve"
2. Type in a new name into the view fitting window, let's say it's "Herb"
3. Access multi-fit from the view fitting window

When I do that, it reverts the ship names to "Steve", no matter what name I wrote into the box before accessing multi-fit. I'd like for it to use the name that's most recently typed into the box, if possible.

I agree. I actually just realized this yesterday and was going to change it tomorrow :)

Any way you can make this more like the industry search function.

Say I want to fit 10 of each of 3 types of ship. Each set of fittings is in its own can in my items hangar - Right now it just tells me the items aren't in my items hangar - What if multifit was smart enough to fit from cans so I can keep my item hangar tidy and transporting of ships and fittings to where they are needed doesn't require so much click select move.

One can, one set of fittings.

My opinions are mine.

  If you don't like them or disagree with me that's OK.- - - - - - Just don't bother Hating - I don't care

It really is getting harder and harder to justify $23 a month for each sub.

yeah, it might be cool to explore that option, but for the first release we'll at least stick to doing everything in the hangar Smile

Additional use cases:
  • cleaning up item hangers near the 1000 item limit,
  • rapid fitting switching: limit hanger view to frequently-used items. (Item Filter is nice and fast, but not seeing extra icons in the first place is better.)

Thank you for your work! The single-ship auto-fitting we have today, has been a great wrist and time-saver.

Someone punch me, is this true?? OUCH - Figure of speech...!!!

Amazing job CCP Karkur!


One tiny thing, if you could store the amount of isotopes or strontium for a capital fuel bay, so that capitals that require them are fueled it is another dream come true.

Hi,

We will run a short test for Multi-fitting to stress the server performance today at 16:30 EVE-time (before the mass test). This will happen on Singularity in the system FD-MLJ. I'll link a chat channel with instructions in the MassTesting channel.

we have changed it so if there's significant Tidi in the system, the multifit process will be aborted and new ones cannot be started until the Tidi comes down again. The Tidi is checked before fitting each ship, so it will not undo the progress you have made before the Tidi became too high.

I expect to multifit in trade hubs, more often than not. I assume reinforcement for them will be in place, most times?

Great stuff guys . Loving it .

Can we please get MULTI CONTRACTS !!!

Having to setup the same contract over and over and over again is such a headache.
But for distrubution of fitted ships their is no other way.
Ceo's and Alliance leaders have to do this stuff constantly and its a very tedious job.

Now im going to spam for fear of not being noticed through all the cheering.
Because \o/ for multi fitting :))))

Now make us cheer for MULTI CONTRACTS !!!
