EVE tweaks its scanner interface and solar system map

    
7

EVE Online launched its Parallax update this week, but CCP isn’t done disseminating information. The firm’s latest dev blog covers improvements made to the sci-fi sandbox’s probe scanner interface, the solar system map, and the directional scanner, so it’s probably worth reading if you’re one of those galactic explorer types.

The probe scanner interface “retains its former functionality,” but some things have been moved around to bring it up to par with EVE’s “UI modernization efforts.” The solar system window, on the other hand, has been decoupled from the star map and now shows up in its own window. CCP says it will become easier to access once “the feature leaves beta.”

last time I tried the trial, I tried to do the exploration tutorial. at first I thought it was the terrible UI that was failing me, but no; I did some googling, and apparently there are no ‘personal’ sites, even in beginner areas. you just have to wander to other solar systems until you find one with a site someone else hasn’t taken already. which is inevitably lower sec. that game, man. it was designed for hardcore lunatics and it works for hardcore lunatics, and no one else.

Time to dust off the cloaky scout Proteus and check out the new interface.

I’m an avid “galactic explorer type” so I look forward to checking out these changes.
