The Eve-Compendium
UPDATE: Now avaliable on another host! Thanks to Phi Slash!!

Hello all, the following pdf is worth many hours of my work.

It was my goal to help out the eve community so I began compiling a compendium of knowledge about eve, mostly in the form of guides. I searched and collected what I felt were up to date guides and information on different topics in eve, converted them to pdf and organized them in what I hope is a friendly manner.

Mind you some guides may contain some information that is a tad out of date but nothing huge. If it's included it is because I thought it would be useful to someone here.

This if the first public release of the eve-compendium. I hope you all find it very useful.

I am offering this free of charge but donations are most welcome (I'm not ashamed to admit they would make me happy Cool)

The Eve-Compendium V1.5
ALT HOST: The Eve-Compendium ALT HOST

any suggestions, tips, errors that you may have or found, please mail me in-game.

Likewise any guides that you have and think it should be included in the compendium simply mail me in-game.

I have done my best to receive permission from the various authors included in the guide. If your work is included in this guide and you wish that I remove it, simply mail me in-game and I will do so promptly.

A sticky would be nice Cool

I stuck it in GD because it just didn't seem to fit in any of the other forums.

If anyone has a suggestion where to move it, I'm all ears.

Are you kidding? You should see about getting this added to the resource thread in the new player forum! Never such a thing as too much good information there.

brilliant! Huge amount of work has beend one, tbh...

As an semi-old player I think this is very good stuff to be recommended for a lot of new players.

Posted - 2008.03.19 15:36:00 - [20]

An amazing effort there. Although I will echo Winterblink in that I think it would be nice to have a consistent style throughout the whole thing, though I do realise that it is a lot of extra work to do that.

I'm having some trouble with this. Not sure if it's my reader (FoxIt Reader) acting up, or if it's the PDF, but it's loading up... weird. It's hard to explain, even as a software engineer, but the best way I can put it is that the viewpane is defaulting to the top-left view, where the pages are miles away, very small, and there's an acre of space between each page. Let me get a screenshot up to try to show you what I mean. If other people are seeing it like this, then I'll rest easy... otherwise, I'll have to repair or replace FoxIt.

[EDIT: So I decided to test it by printing it out into PrimoPDF, and the result displays fine but obviously breaks the clickable ToC structure, so it's the PDF or the JavaScript handling update that it had me install when I opened it.]

That's impresive !

One of the Dev's that replied should have stickied this by now!

This is outstanding work. Shocked

I've just taken a short look at it and it seems useful for new and experienced players alike.
I hope the community appreciates the effort you went through in form of donations and constuctive suggestions. Smile

Only criticism so far would be the fact that a few sentences sometimes continue on the next page which breaks the otherwise organized layout a bit.

I'm curious how long it did take you to put all this together though. That's a lot of text and info :3

The next big step would be to hyperlink certain keywords so people who read it and get interested in a certain topic can jump there in an instant.

Love and waffles,

you can get the adobe acrobat reader right from adobes website for free, it works the best for opening pdf files

I find it very sluggish, which is why I use FoxIt, as it's super-fast.

A mammoth undertaking! Will certainly add it to the list of guides on my blog! And I'll make sure that it gets its share of fame on the next Drone Bay! Very Happy

Can someone please host this file elsewhere other than imageshack or eve-files? Work blocks them.

Wow, so, the Player Guide over <---------- there is getting replaced with this? CCP, this is the resume of someone you need to hire!

Can you please add the publication date of the different guides you are using so people can know how dated certain information is?
