[COMPLETED] Intro to D-Scan 2020-05-26 & 28

Post by Drebin 679 »


So I'm back with another set of quick, short-SiSi-notice D-Scan classes, this time though with a livestream backup!

A CORE course on the Directional Scanner, a feature built into every ship (and your capsule), that gives you information about what ships are around you, and can have its range, angle, and orientation adjusted to get information from a more specific area.

To try and compress the event into a one hour block, I'll be running this on the Singularity (SiSi) test server. Details below:

When: May 26th @ 1800 & May 28th @ 0100 EVE time (two sections)
Where: Public Mumble, Singularity Server (or https://www.twitch.tv/drebin_679)
Duration: 1 hour

Topics Covered:
  • Using the Directional Scanner (D-Scan)
  • D-Scan as it applies to different areas of space (High, Low, Null, Wormhole)
Student requirements: Now, saying "oh, we'll run this class on Singularity" less than 24 hours prior is definitely quite short notice. But why Singularity? It enables the class to quickly touch the different areas of space in New Eden through the use of Singularity's /moveme tool, which lets capsuleers instantly jump to preset systems in highsec, nullsec, and wormhole space. Makes touching each respective area much easier logistically, and offers access to these areas of space without having to worry about third parties intervening.

Singularity has strict rules, and nonconsentual PvP can only occur in one system. For that reason, along with the fact that you can't use /moveme with a logoff timer, means that we will be in frigates for the duration of this class.

Tranquility (the main server) gets mirrored onto Singularity roughly every few months. The most recent mirror seemed to take place circa March 25th. So if you did not have an account before then, you will not be able to access Singularity. To make up for that, I will be livestreaming my perspective on Singularity, which should hopefully illustrate topics better than with voice alone.

Now, the Forsaken Fortress update and Invasion Chapter 3 will be releasing with this coming downtime. Should SiSi be inaccessible for any reason at the scheduled times for these classes, the class on the 26th @ 1800 will be rescheduled to the 29th @ 1800, and this class will be held on Tranquility instead.

Hope this class will be helpful!
