Thread: Companion API stopped having Engineering Data

  1. #166
    Enjoy the games for the very few cool features it offers. Landing on a planet and driving a rover and doing missions. That's about it. When I want a serious and more spacelike style of play, I'll play EvE. You can also download API's for EvE tool apps and other 3rd party software. ED doesn't offer enough at this time to worry this feature. Market isn't player driven and economy and control is whatever the devs want it to be. Not the players that barely can stay connected or try to play with friends. I will stick to EvE for now. I just jump on ED when I want to land on a planet :)

    I have faith that David and his team will pull through and make some groundbreaking new additions that will pull a lot of gamers like me away from the blockbuster games that have pioneered the MMO experience.

    Add the following:
    -Real Market (player driven)
    -Corporation (Clan gathering of friends, family, community,etc..)
    -Complete overhaul of the item database
    -Robust crafting/trades/item manufacturing system
    -Core stability improvement along with space security zones
    -Player faction control (would require creating player corporation or empire)
    -about 25 more ships that have a more balance in price

    It still will be very interesting to see what the future holds for this game.. will check back around next update or two to what isn't new.

    Still waiting for this feature to be reinstated...

    Also still waiting. We had an amazing tool for planning and sharing builds. FDev took it away, and months have gone by with no assurances other than it is "under investigation". :-(
    Do they not understand how useful this information was for us?

    They don't. I said it many times, Frontier doesn't play their own game for any significant amount of time so they don't know the issues we're facing.

    I just hope the reason we're still waiting is because something a lot better is going to surface soon.....can but hope

    Please Frontier, fix this as soon as possible. And please, please could you let the community know what the current status of a fix is?

    If I'm honest, I'm more eagerly awaiting news of the possibility of this data returning to the API in 2.4 than I am anything to do with the Thargoid return…

    This. I haven't met a live thargoid ship or visited a guardian site, a listening post or a thargoid 'base'. The only time I visited a crashed alien ship was to get something I needed for an engineer. I wonder if there are more users of the API than there are CMDRs who follow the alien story line.

    The ability to automatically update module engineering information is not an optional feature which FDev can remove without notice. If you will not replace the previous functionality to the game then you should remove engineering from the game.

    I have many things that I love about engineering, but this issue is really a sore point. To many thingsb get broken every time something new gets added, not good.

    I can't believe we are still waiting for this to be fixed. I have hardly played since this happened, more due to my love of engineering ships and tweaking things on them. I am no min-maxer but I enjoy making ships better all-arounders and occasionally stripping down ships to see how far a jump range I can get. Having a Python and an imp courier that can jump almost 30ly even with a full loadout is fun and requires some tinkering. This is made very difficult without the engineering info displayed through the app and so I hardly play a game that I love very much. Heck my desktop is the blueprints of my fav ship to tinker with, the cutter. I call mine Spaceball One :p.

    Please Fdev, bring it back soon!

    Hey, new player here! I got really used to the convenience of having EDMC running to look at my travel logs and stare at my ship builds while I was away from my gaming pc. Then I opened up my newly overcharged Vulture today and actually thought I'd screwed up something, because its power capacity was not what it was supposed to be!

    The ability to doodle around with ship designs on the go is really really nice, keeping me engaged with and thinking about the game while I didn't have it actually launched. Knowing what actual constraints you're working with is critical to that! I know you're already investigating this and i know changes break old features; I just also wanted to add my voice saying how important this was to my E:D experience.

    Thanks!
