I dont know why the Dev's spend time in unusefull things???

Change other issues 1st, they are even more needet as Certificates or Medals.

Q: When we will get real functionality on things that are not working since they are made? See below.

1. POS management and access rights. (special for alliances)
3. Corp management and access rights.
3. Server Load Ballancing on large Fleet Battles or on large System populations.

Just an Idea: Create a Alliance Hangar like the Ship Maintenance Array. Abel to hold Spezial Secure Container (more Cargo than a normal one) to seperate the Allianze Member Stuff.

I have lots of ideas that are better then what i've read in the past from the Dev's.

Given that translates to about 4 pm EST, could you please post an official transcript for those of us who are at RL jobs? I still have no clue what was said at the speed one because I can't find a community transcript.

There should really always be official transcripts prominently posted, not just for those who cannot attend but also for those of us who are hearing impaired. (Not to mention all the people who just can't cut through some of the accents involved).

Played with the medals on Sisi - right now there are four ribbon styles to pick for the design and they appear to be one themed for each race. Think the art department would consider doing at least another set so there's more than one per race (for such people that care about that)?

Hey Chronotis:

I don't need no stinking medals.Laughing

But what I and the game can use is a "Capital Covert Ops Mining Ship".
Heavy on shields and armor. Can warp cloaked. Mine cloaked. Can penetrate
O.O space (BoB) undetected. Can also work in Empire in a reduced state.

Must be a solo pilot. Can not join any fleet action. Must have jump engine. Hugh cargo
space. Have it's own Cryo generator. Does not need a suicide pilot. Can not be tackled. Have strip miners that can reach out to 200K. Can mine twice as much as normal strips and cost half a billion each. Will need 6 of them. Drone bay as big as a Domi. And above all else it can run like the wind.

For to long you have turned your back on mining. Always PvP. Only PvP. Well, there are thousands of players and miners that don't care about PvP. We miners need something to shoot for. A brass ring to reach for. Something that would inliven the game again. And that could be the Capital Covert Ops Mining Ship.

The career path should be very special. Like for a Mother Ship or Titan.

COuld CCP please answer a few questions relating to the sudden change in the training system (ie Ghost training ban) when its been a part of eve for so long, and why they changed it without warning overnight (for me anyway), dont you think that is a bit unfair to the people who take breaks rather than quitting EVE altogther, espeically now we as a customer is finding it hard due to the current econmic crisis?

And how do you believe this will effect the loyalty of your customers, espeically now alot more games are coming into the MMO market directly competing with EVE (ie jumpgate evo)

Apologies for not reading through all of the responses, and questions.
Mine are:

Will we be able to set different 'view flags' on certificates? E.g. the "public", and then perhaps "alliance", "corporation", "corporation directors".

edit: offtopic:
Agree Asith.
"Ghost training" has been a feature for years and years, and all of a sudden it's a bug. When I started playing, "ghost training" was listed as a feature!

It sounds to me like the certificates are nothing more than a shortcut to figuring out which skills are needed to be good at something instead of just reading through all the skills and deciding for yourself which ones to train.

Originally by: Cailais

Any plans to link certificates to missions? e.g you need to be a Gallente Military Specialist to complete a mission - or as a guide to newbs (recommended certs)?


linking certifcates to missions would not be cool! It would probably reqire ppl to train for ships or races they prefer not to use just to do a mission. For example, i like to do lvl 4 missions with a wolf or a claw when i need sec gains. I don't want to do it with a BS or anything that big and it would really decrease my gaming experience to be required to have certain certificates to do a mission instead of being standings based.

Im not asking you're opinion numbnuts, Im asking the devs - get back in yer cave.

Im going to say the devs could have spent there time and energy on something useful. Such as a SKILL QUE!!! rather then this useless fluf. they should have taken care of existing problems rather then making something that will make more. Id be nice to have gotten more cake and less cheep frosting. also... what about the miners? Id be nice for those who dont care about pvp to get some love. I love the exumer but its high time we got something new. such as a capital miner. with a huge cargo/drone bay, can equip strip miners and ice harvesters, and either eliminates the targeting penalty for warp stabs or cant be warp scramed. Or something similer. also a BS equivilent of mining ships would be nice as well. So far as i can tell PVP, and Production have gotten all the love. While mining has become the forgotten sibling no one pays attention to.

First - I like the idea of of the most confusing things about starting this game is trying to get a handle on the skill system. I think people are overlooking that, expecting every new feature to be for the highest end of the player base. I also think they will benefit corp leaders, who will have a basic way to tell what potential recruits have for a skill set. After reading what a few people are saying about what's on the test server, though, I join in asking that the requirements be examined carefully to make very sure they are relevant. Controlled Burst on a projectile gunnery certificate is obviously silly unless you plan to also change projectile weapons to cost energy!

Second - Medals sound dangerously close to meaningless eye-candy to me. I'm foreseeing Goons running around with 10,000 medals that are all some variation on the "I'm uber!" medal. Will this cause massive lag if you try to get info on them?

Third - An idea for expanding certificates would be corp-generated ones. Have the corp leader be able to set specific skills on a certificate he/she names, so that it becomes easy to determine who meets corp standards for specific roles and ships.

Looking forward to hearing more...

Well, this is not a question regarding certificates but live dev blogs in general.

Any chance we will see these get posted as mp3s again like you did with the old ones ? I really liked being able to listen back to them in the car :) but havent seen any of the new ones posted that way.

I must admit I don't really know what medals and cert's here for :(
But I had an idea for EVE implementation for quite some time. If this is a chance to speak it - here I am.
What we have now:
Everything in solar system is stable. Which isn't quite an educational for those who will pilot ships in real space in near future i suppose :)
What i want to propose?
Each DT planets, moons, belts would change their location according to astronomic mechanics...

So all bookmarks on belts would be useless (they will point to place where belt might be in future again Very Happy )
However if it would be possible to keep links on POSes (anything that within it's sphere) correct all the time (let's say it would represent information exchange with tower once you made bookmark) then it would be good.

Something new, something that would make sense, something that as it should be, something fun!
with my regards

Question is the Orca going to be the equivalent of a high sec command ship for mining forman, and what kind of skill requirements are we to expect for it?

for people who dont want to publish the certs for all ne capsuleers in new eden but for the corpmates.

Will there be an option for the corporation to REMOVE any unwanted medals or medals incorrectly made? there currently is no option to remove them once created.

Quantum rise:
Further features also include:

# Weapon linking to make your onslaught easier

# Continuations of the massive Trinity graphics update

# Changes to autopilot routes and avoidance techniques

# More to be revealed in the coming weeks

1. Obviously ship models were upgraded, will planets and asteroids get update now?
2. "Weapon linking to make your onslaught easier" How does it actually work?

A medal should cost an amount of Isk for each type of medal, the cost of these medals are non refundable.

This way a medal will become of real value.

For example, i would reallybe honoured in case a corp or an alliance would give me a billion isk valued medal.

Aside of an isk based Medal, there should be Medals that can only be created by agents....

Is this an option CCP?

Posted - 2008.10.16 20:15:00 - [89]

I've got a question, a bit of a hot potatoe atm,
'Skills continue training even if you are logged off or if your account is inactive (in the second scenario you can't change skill training, though)'
Why did you not just limit this to 30days maximum of 'offline' training'?

Will this get answered as the community feels this SHOULD be answered.

Nobody cares about these stupid epeen enhacements you're trying to push on us. It has NO affect on gameplay AT ALL. How about you talk about something people actually care about, like changing a feature into a bug? Just food for thought, you're claiming you're fixing an unbalance by disabling ghost training, when in reality you're unbalancing the game for EVERYONE who hasn't done it yet, all the older characters have already befitted from it, and you'll never balance that out by disabling your "feature/bug".

Suck my nuts CCP, you bag of lying liars.
