Last change: 19.04.2023 – Please contact me if some links should not work anymore so I can update or fix them.

Business Tools – A viable alternative, providing similar functionality as eve-marketdata. – A reincarnation of the in-game market in your browser.

PI-Commodities –  A helpful tool that helps planning production of higher tier production lines in the field of planetary interaction. Probably the most passive way – beside from setting it all up – to earn solid ISK in New Ed

Intel – Don’t know what a specific thing means? Chances are high you will find a short and on point explanation here. – Gives detailed information about characters, corps and alliances. – Crtl + click (or click + drag) to select your preferred timezone and click the checkboxes for the space you want to fly in. Hit „Set“ and you will get a list of the 50 most active corporations from the last 30 days. & – To keep track of who is who in the grand scheme of things. – Took me a while to find out the true potential of this tool, but when you find out how to use it, you can identify camped systems, hot pockets and who lives where. Very useful for traveling and finding/avoiding PvP. – A newer mapping tool that is especially good at displaying who owns which region in a very easy to process way. – A set of tools for advanced intel. Very helpful for every null sec dweller. Sadly the sever seems not very reliable (Juli 2019) (identified as out of order on 05.11.2020) – If you want to know what’s going on in terms of PvP in a specific system, that’s the place you want to go. Great for finding out who lives in a wormhole. – Probably the prettiest and most immersive intel-tool out there.
It’s developer Kpekep passed away on 6th of March, 2019. Rest in peace, capsuleer. – An leader board for abyssal PvP. Great for inspiration about fittings and in general what you could face in the abyssal proving grounds. (identified as out of order on 05.11.2020) – A incredible huge and into depth wiki for nearly all topics you could come across while playing EVE Online. – Just input your route and let this handy tool check if someone died recently on the gates you plan to go through. – German/English with a ton of information and links about nearly any aspect of Eve. Does no longer get actively maintained.

Wormhole Identification – How to identify where a wormhole leads to – just by looking at it! By Ashy from the wormhole group Outfoxed. – Listings of wormholes, wormhole system, their types and tons of detailed data. And its greatly filter- and searchable too! – Thinking about reaching gold consent and welcome our new Triglavian overlords? This is a good place to start learning how to go about it.

Pochven Entry Manual – How to locate and utilize entries to Triglavian Space by Eslebeth Rhiannon and Debes Sparre


Pyfa – if you are looking for a fitting tool outside of the client simulation, this is it. With Pyfa you can simulate hot ship-on-ship action. And if you want to save your eyes, there is also a dark mode for it.

Fitting window, bottom right.

If you didn’t know, you can copy & paste fits in between Pyfa and the in-game fitting simulation via your clipboard. It’s rather easy.
See the screenshot on the right. ➡ – to create, save, share and export fits to your delight. Almost like Pyfa in your browser.
