The new features on the killmail system are all great and I enjoy the idea behind them. But someone should take a look at the system and find out where all these 'unknown' weapons come from.

Some of the issues I've found with killmails:

  • Weapons are not identified sometimes and placed as 'unknown' or the ship the player was in.

  • Ships are not identified and sometimes confused for other ships. (Players are sometimes considered sentries or rats)

  • Sometimes inert objects such as warp bubbles find their way onto killmails by having done damage

I've seen other things happen but not any repetition and I'll leave them to copy/paste errors atm. But I'm sure that a lot of people can understand why it might be necessary to correct these issues.

Also, just as an aside, thankyou for showing rigs on killmails. Think we could get implants on podmails? :D

Adding the kill-mail truncation. Nice "feature"

I see (not so rarely) things like:
Ship: Hurricane
Weapon: Hurricane

Also, when your ship pops before the fight is over, sometimes you have

Ship: Unknown

appearing on the killmail. I tend to manually correct this, since it's annoying to no end.

Also, implants on podmails would be very sweet, particularly when you're fighting someone (in a war or such) and want to judge the damage caused.

It smells of bad data structure locking.

Yea, I also remembered recently that if you die before the killmail is generated (if you're fighting someone and you or one of your gangmates die before your gang kills the target) they/you end up on the mail in a pod. Although you still get on the killmail, it gets confusing at times when people have their previous kills page with 10 kills or so in a pod. (I wonder how many points on griefwatch you get for that Laughing)

I actually have a theory that if you use certain types of weapons(Missiles, AC's on the hurricane for instance), you will either end up with Unknown weapon or even "Hurricane" as weapon.

Support. POS killmails also need fixing.
