Increased Skill Injector Flexibility Coming On May 23rd

Hello skilful Capsuleers of New Eden!

With the changes to PLEX now deployed and the market now stable, today we’d like to tell you about another small improvement we’re going to be making on May 23rd, this time relating to Skill Trading.



Moving PLEX towards a more granular, and ultimately more flexible design got us thinking about doing the same for Skill Trading. Originally, we aimed to set the size of Skill Injectors and Extractors in a way that kept them small enough to trade conveniently, but large enough to represent a meaningful amount of skill points. We think we hit the latter goal well, using Injectors feels good. However, with a minimum price tag of around 650 million ISK, injectors can feel out of reach for many players, especially those early in their careers when a little boost here and there goes a long way.

With that in mind, we’re going to introduce a new type of Skill Injector that will be one fifth the size of a current injector, bringing Skill Trading into a more reasonable price range on the market for newer players.

How does this work?

Here is a summary of what’s changing in bullet point form:

  • Renaming of the current Skill Injector to ‘Large Skill Injector’
  • Introduction of a new injector called ‘Small Skill Injector’
  • Adding right-click option to break Large Injectors into 5x Small injectors or combine 5x Small Injectors into 1x Large Injector
  • Using a Small Skill Injector will award a maximum of 100,000 skill points and will give the following amounts, depending on total SP on the character using the Injector:
    • For characters with less than 5mil SP:  100k SP
    • For characters with 5mil – 50mil SP:  80k SP
    • For characters with 50mil – 80mil SP:   60k SP
    • For characters with more than 80mil SP:   30k SP
That’s pretty much it!

We hope you enjoy having a bite-size skill trading option and as always let us know what you think in the comments.

Color Blindness support is coming to EVE Online

According to the internet, around 8% of men are color blind, so some quick napkin math would mean around 7.999% of EVE players are color blind, which is a considerable chunk. I am not one of those 7.999%, so it was particularly interesting, yet challenging, to work on this feature, mostly because I was at no point capable of estimating if I was finding any success. I guess that gave me a tiny taste of how it must feel to be colorblind.





The approach
Deuteranopia is not only a very hard word to pronounce, but also the most common form of color blindness (red/green). Protanopia is the second most common form (red/green, like Deuteranopia) and Tritanopia the third most common (blue/yellow). Our original plan was to add one mode for each of those and call it a day. We have a handful of colorblind devs at the CCP Reykjavik Office whom we ruthlessly used as guinea pigs and one of the biggest findings during those sessions was that the forms of color blindness don’t seem to be quite as clear cut as those in the 92.001% originally assumed. As a result of our testing, we ended up with two preset modes and one custom mode that allows you to toggle any of the 6 main hues to be included in a resulting color palette. To turn on color blind mode, simply open the ESC menu / General Settings / Color Blind Mode and play around with the settings.



Some games that offer color blind modes simply replace all color on the screen using the selected color blind hue mapping, but as it seems people don’t really care too much for that approach since it makes the game world look weird for no good reason as it’s only color used for indication of state that causes problems. Instead, we only apply the color-blind hue mapping to UI highlight colors, meaning that it’s mostly icons and text that get affected and not background color, the 3d scene, or graphical images like items. There are a couple UI areas where color blind mode does not work for the time being (most noticeably the scanning 3d scene), but it is our hope we’ll get all those areas covered in the future.

Can I try?
Well of course you can! From the EVE launcher, switch from Tranquility over to the test server Singularity and give it a shot. If you do, we’ve cooked up a survey to collect all that sweet feedback:

A beta version of Color Blind Mode is set to go live on Tranquility as party of the June release.
