Oh, capsuleers. This is news you've all been waiting for... well, many of you have...

I have but two words for you: skill queues.

Eris Discordia has written not just a new blog, but a new blog detailing our upcoming skill queue feature, which will bring even more Winsauce to Apocrypha.

Enjoy, and discuss!

Update: We've updated the image for better eye candy loving. Enjoy!

Very nice.
How does it work with skill books for dependant skills?
I notice in your mockup you include an example.

woot

OMG I haven't even read it yet but I had to post.

THANK YOU CSM.

THANK YOU.

ok quick question... why do you need a mock up? Could it just be put into or replace the currect skill list? So if you start training a skill that is less than 24 hours long, a window extends to the right allow you right click and add another skill to the que.
In other words, whenever you right click and train a skill lass than 24 hours long, your mock up window should open AUTOMATICALLY. New players shouldn't have to figure out this is in-game. it should feel like a normal part of the game, that they all find right away, and don't need a new window that is hidden to figure out.

On a more serious note.
This is all the functionality I needed from the skillqueue. So no real comments before M10.
And I second the motion by CSM LaVista Vista. Very Happy

A skill queue draws nigh
Green shoots through through melting snows grow
My heart thaws with spring

I would ask for one teensy little option - that the queue be able to hold one skill which will start training after 24 hours have passed - e.g. if there are 2 days left on my Medium Energy Weapon V, I'd like to be able to add Amarr Cruiser V to the queue anyway.

That is a really great way of doing it to allow those 3-7 hour skills to be finished without losing time for the more casual player. Well thought out idea and hopefully a well executed implementation.

Now what would be a really cool idea would be the ability to cue between characters on the same account.

I still hope one day when you CCP dudes are billionaires you will perhaps let us have more than 1 character have a skill training on a single account. (financial crisis aside i am sure that is still a ways off)

Thank you CCP Fallout, you have made my day. (slow day :P )
Very Happy

just add ammar cruiser 5 to the queue then start training med energy 5 - will add med to the top of the ququ and leave amaar crs 5 in the queue

24h queue is not enough. What if you go on a holiday or a business trip that takes a week and do not want to train a level 5 skill? If I were to take my notebook with me I would just login to change the skill and then logoff since I'd have much more important things to do like attending a meeting or enjoying myself. Therefore the argument in devblog that a skill queue longer than 24h will cause problems is nonsense. If someone does not want to play eve he won't play it. Customers should not be forced to login. Maybe instead make the game more thrilling so people couldn't wait until they can login.

3/10

The 24 hours is too limiting, it should be as many as you can in a 24 hour period or just pick 1 to start when you've finished. No use to me unless I can use it during times when I'm on holiday.

Very Happy Brilliant News! Now I can set up skills without having to worry about them finishing in the middle of the Working Day!

And It also helps with those inconvenient times when a Skill Completes in the Middle of combat as I can just set the next skill to start automatically after the current one completes while I'm safely in station meaning one less thing to worry about in a fight.

Finally!

Just one question: will it support multiple levels of the same skill?

One thing which has been mentioned time and again as a possible alternative to a skill-queue (back when you said you weren't doing one) :
Setting a skill and having it just train the next level if it finishes before you can change it.
ie. I set Navigation I training and get back the next day to see it finishing Navigation IV.

Will this be possible with your version ? Or can i only set the next possible level on a particular skill ?

One small step for eve-dev, one giant leap for eve-kind.
To paraphrase an original Very Happy
