A Fitting Title

There's a lot of significant change coming to Eve next month and I'm yet to find a single instance where CCP might have over reached. Alpha Clone states promise to bring more people to the universe, off grid boosts will be a thing of the past, industrialists will get their buildy buildings, Rorquals can no longer hide impervious to raiders and it would seem the days of the Eve Fitting Tool and the Python Fitting Assistant are numbered. The in game fitting window is nothing short of brilliant, allowing a pilot to experiment with all manner of fittings for ships they fly and even ones they can't. Citadels get the treatment, too. It's beautifully designed and, from my rather cursory examination of it, not at all buggy.

It's not going to mean those other fitting tools won't have a use, of course. They can, after all, be used out of game and this one cannot. It certainly makes your average Joe far less reliant on out of game tools though.

Anyway, it's on Singularity now so do yourself a favour and check it out.


  1. It is a work in progress and a good one at that. Easy to use and accurate.
    One thing it doesn't do is allow the player to manipulate implants and enhancements to see if a fit is viable. The tool on Singularity uses the clone you are in, not the clone you want to be in, which leaves the door open for third party tools to continue to provide a service.
    Combine this with the revised character and training sheet and CCP are providing functional in-game tools that enhance day to day game play.
    Definitely a step in the right direction.

    1. Ah, good point. I hadn't considered implants and command boosts. Like you say though, a giant leap forward.


Keep it civil!
