Today, CCP Punkturis announced in her dev blog that rigs saved in fittings will now be fit to ships. We will be given a question to verify that we do want to fit rigs- though we will be able to tick off that question from popping up every time after that.
Secondly, cap boosters and ammo will be loaded if saved in your fittings. Awesome, right?
Also, there’s a new tweek that will load all of the mods that you have skills for instead of how it was before, where it would refuse to load anything from your fitting if you couldn’t use a particular mod.
Thank you Punkturis for all of your hard work, it is greatly appreciated!
I really love these new changes because I am one of the people who fit ships for my corp. It is time-consuming and this will make it a whole lot easier!
These new changes brought about a new discussion on Twitter about having a –buy the whole fitting – button.
I replied that I think in theory it is a great idea but that in practice not so much.
A heated debate ensued!
Honestly, I do think a -buy the whole fitting– button is a good idea. It would make mass buying easier. I’m pretty certain that I’ve sat in Amarr bitching about that exact thing, that there should be a way to buy everything at once. I know I have.
However, what I pointed out on Twitter that got people’s tempers flaring for whatever reason is that, it’s EVE, and that button will probably go mostly unused because there are too many douches who will go to great extremes to fuck something useful up.
What I imagine happening is something like:
Random dude buys up all the 1mil mods of common X fitting. He remarkets them for 10mil. Now your ship is heaps more expensive. The window is going to say ‘buy this at X amount?’ and you’re going to click ‘nah’. And then you’re going to individually go thru and buy all the things except for the bloated priced mod.
I can even imagine people with grudges going to extremes, stalking your loss mails, going to your market hubs and mucking around with the things you buy just so you cannot use this button!
The only way the -buy all the things– button will be useful (in my opinion!!) is if you are allowed to untick the bloated price item, but still buy all the other things at once. Like a warning would pop up stating ‘X’ item is one gazillion ISK more than it should be, remove?
Yup, I think that would work.
What do you guys think? Are you in favor of the -buy it all– button??
