    I didn't scam him, I literally just upgraded a trial account yesterday, and all there was on the account was an unfitted Punisher and 23k isk, I haven't played eve in nearly a year, so figuring out how to get money when I already hold so little would be difficult.

    I'm just some space hobo who needed a little bit of an isk boost so I can begin my eve adventures again. :kiddo:

    Edited:

    And doesn't CCP actually encourage scamming anyways? They recently made a commercial vaguely hinting at what goonfleet did to BoB a year ago.

    There's a fine line between scamming dumb users and exploiting game mechanics/sanctioned CCP functions of the game.



    The latter will earn you a long vacation.

    EVE is "too difficult" for mainstream public and thus is not profitable.

    They do but only in-game.
    It doesn't make it more socially acceptable though, you'll still be an asshole.

    Oh great, my friend just got killed by a 4 man corp that went at war towards our alliance for fun, and goes around killing lone miners and weak players.

    My friend had just started, and had been training skills for a while, and of-course forgot to upgrade his clone....

    Now he kinda gets upset in games so... He's saying he quit EVE forever, he actually got so mad that his mother came along and turned off his computer.

    Damn

    I usually go with Corp theft, and even then only if it's worth the isk. Last time I did it, I only made 300 million isk. Basically, it's only worth it as a "retirement package" if you're quitting the corp anyways.

    Is there any specific ways to make this run smoother with antialiasing? I dont want to push down the other graphics options too much to be able to enable it. :(

    Turn off dynamic shadows (they're way too pixelated anyways), lower HDR settings, turn off blur.

    Dynamic shadows as in the Shadow Tab or the Shader Quality menu? and HDR as the HDR tab or the PostProcessing menu?

    They must've changed that menu since I last played and I can't check because I don't have EVE installed anymore.
    You'll have to figure it out on your own.

    Lower your Shadows and HDR, they're the ones taking most processing power (after the AA).

    Alright, Another question now. When does the quality of an agent, say, at 0 raise to 1? At what standing do I need to be at with an agent in order to raise this number? Or is the quality number irrelivant and is it just the standing that dictates whether I get a higher reward for completing missions.

    Higher quality requires higher standing, and gives better rewards, it goes from -20 to 20 quality, as far as i know.

    Use an agent finder website to find agents, and the site should also show the requirements on standing, and basically everything you need to know about them.

    I know that, my question was how much standing do I need to bring up in order to bump up the quality one level.

    Well it differs from the agents.. i don't know how to answer this because i don't think there actually is one, there might be though, but anyway it's hard to find an agent with -11 and then one with -10 that are close to eachother with the same corp, and as Jack Trades corrected me, the quality doesn't matter, so whatever ;)

    I suck at making money.. I've played this on and off for like 3 years and I seem to lose more money than make any.. The best thing I've had was some battle-cruiser, I've died more times than I can count, and I never have had a single pvp kill. :smith:

    Edited:

    I just need money for like a rifter+training and I guess I could run missions or take another go at ninja-salvaging.

    as long as faction mods stay off the market, contracts have a reason to stay around.

    spent a shitload of money on stuff I didn't need. Gonna ninja-salvage all night.

    Speaking of ninja-salvaging, if I warp to a dude in the middle of fighting a ton of rats, with some still alive, will they maybe attack me? or will they only attack me if the other guy warps out?

    Edited:

    Also where the hell are the glasses in the character editing panel? Are they only available to certain races? (I'm amarr)

    Water is a player-created resource, and is used for a lot of stuff.
    People play EvE just for the economics I'm sure.

    I'm making roughly 1 million a day with maybe 200k spent to set it up, I have to fly to get that shit and haul it, but if you manage like 5 planets and are doing more than bare minimum like me, you should be making decent money.

    Edited:

    But it's on a 4 day cycle, so I'm going to collect every 4 days for the ~4 million.
