EVE Online: Dominion's Fleet Finder
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
CCP Games has released another new developer blog focusing on upcoming changes to its sci-fi MMO, EVE Online. The post offers a preview of the Fleet Finder, a new feature planned for the upcoming Dominion expansion. The Finder will allow player to access all information related to fleets in a single window.
One of the features that I am personally most excited about for the upcoming Dominion expansion (well, not counting the new browser, the sovereignty changes, the awesome new graphics...).Click over to the link below to read the specifics.
EVE Online Blog: Fleet Finder Features
Let me try that again: A thing that I'm reasonably excited about is a cute little feature that we call the Fleet Finder.
What's even cooler is that we took the opportunity and worked on the overall fleet UI and some of the basic fleet functionality like the broadcasts.
This is something we've been iterating on for a while and it‘s running on Singularity as we speak. If I were you I‘d stop reading right now and go play with it!
Still here? Okay, fine, let's go through the highlights then.
One of the things you'll notice straight away is the new "Fleet" button on your NeoCom. This will allow you to access everything fleet related in a single window. We've combined the broadcast and the fleet window in one and added the Fleet Finder into it as well. This approach is much more user-friendly and should be helpful to newer pilots who are finding their footing in Eve.
You are able to completely close the Fleet window without exiting your fleet. I'm pretty sure that this will come in handy for people in large, 200+ man person fleets because updating the fleet member list is a bit laggy with that many people (this is something we're looking into).
