I think this will help mission runners and new people quite a bit. I have some questions. Is there a way to search for locator agents for each faction using this tool? That is the only tab I see missing. Looking at the image of agents, it does not seem as though you can click on the individual agent to see if you are able to use it. I see the link for the system but that is all. Is that correct? I basically use evegate now days. I am away from the game so any answers will help my curiosity. Thanks

Is there eventually going to be a general increase in combat agents to compensate for the agent nerf a few weeks back?

Rather silly to be in the lowest security part of the Amarr Empire and not have a level 4 Amarr combat agent for 10+ jumps.

Take the pictures out. You just hit randomize and generated them on-masse anyhow.

Wasted space that could be used for much more useful information.

NPE systems and NPE agents are not listed in the search function making it hard for older players to run thru the NPE epic arc to see the great fleet of ships and Academy at the end of it.

The System search could use a type in search block.

Great new FeatureLaughing I know its going to be the first feature I use on my alt. Faction standings here I come.

Can we filter for Locator agents. or do we still have to use Eve agents for that.

according to your devblog, thirdparty developers who made "agent finding" sites did the impossible job.

If the agent is not available to you, the portrait and the text is faded out Smile

Couldn't you already use the map to find agents....

You can start typing in the name of the system when you have systems box selected.

OMG, thank you for doing this - it's been something I've wanted for ages and goes several steps beyond the online eve-agents.com which is useful but nowhere near the usability of this.

Can't wait to see it in game and test it out Very Happy

i think no one will miss this sentence when reading the blog... they really need to rephrase it...
cause i suppose they wanted to say something else, like maybe
"it was impossible before to make this...with the same efficiency / with a simple UI like this"

Try http://eve-locator.justaddhippopotamus.com/

I used to use eve-agents but it was a pain to figure out which agent was closer, especially if I was near a region border.

But we'll see if the new agent finder has all the bells and whistles.

Is this available through the normal UI? When I tried it on the test server I had to waste 20-30 seconds doing a slow walk to the couch every time I wanted to use this feature :(

You can access it from the agents tab in the station services and in the agents tab of the p&p window.

But what about epic agents?

As far as im aware the old NPE agents have been replaced by Aura, if you hit F12 you should be able to still run the tutorials as long as you haven't in the past. Not sure you'll get the quick and dirty fraction standings now though.

I like this feature, Score again for team BFF... Any chance that this could be modified to show more than 6 at a time?
I tend to resize these kind of windows and stack them together, and their is a lot of wasted space when I do that.

I've hated running missions primarily because of the absolute pain in the ass of running all over the universe trying to find the right agent. Great to have this in game!

Yes, you could. But many people find the complexity of the map options a bit confusing. I think it's a nice addition, especially for new players.

Thank you! Do you know if locator agents can be searched for with the tool yet?
