Ship Mechanics Basics
Key Information

Date: {see scheduled times below}
Comms: EVE University Public Mumble server for comms, EVE University Discord for presentation

Overview

Does the image above look like a confusing mishmash of numbers? If so, this class is for you. Like all good spreadsheets, spaceships in EVE are made up of a lot of numbers. In this class, we'll focus on the tactical attributes common to all ships, explain the basics of each attribute's relevant underlying mechanics, and talk about the key things that affect those attributes. In particular, we'll cover:
  • core and fitting: slots, rigging calibration, CPU, powergrid, capacitor, mass, volume, capacity, drone bandwidth, drone capacity
  • offensive: damage, volley, reload time, projection, tracking
  • defensive: shield, armor, hull, buffer tanks, active/passive tanks, resistances, effective hp
  • navigation: ship speed, align time, warp speed
  • electronics: scan resolution, targeting range, sensor strength
  • cognitive: module management, complexity, concurrency, overheating
At the end of the class, you'll have a concrete picture of what makes your ship tick, how to make these numbers better if you'd like, and which numbers you should care the most about.

Note: Public Event

Note that there may be non-IVY members in this event; this is a crossposted class or practical.

Finally

Got any questions? Let's talk below, or tag me in the #eve-uni-general Discord channel on the EVE University Discord. (Please don't DM me on Discord, as I'm less likely to see it.)
