Title: Less jumps: introducing Jumpplanner v2.1
Post by: Elissen on October 28, 2007, 01:39:55 pm
Since we're less then a week away from the FanFest (http://www.eve-online.com/fanfest/2007/), I figured it would be a nice time to put the new Jumpplanner (http://www.eve-icsc.com/jumptools/jumpplanner.php) online [:D]. So what´s new? Well, a few people complained that the Jumpplanner (http://www.eve-icsc.com/jumptools/jumpplanner.php) did not always give back the shortest route; sometimes you would use a tad more fuel, but every blue monday you even had more jumps. Well, no longer. With v2.1 the Jumpplanner (http://www.eve-icsc.com/jumptools/jumpplanner.php)'s algorithm has been tweaked to shave off those last lightyears and safe you on your isotopes [8)].
The Rorqual has also been added as a seperate option for clarity.

So you might wonder what is up next? I am currently working on a supporting project, something that the Jumpplanner will also use. If you are a webmaster or 3rd party tool developer, keep your eyes open for an announcement. Or get a hold of me at the FanFest.
After that, it will be support for jumpbridges, cynojammer & cynogens. And of course what ever CCP adds in Revelations III comes probaly first!


If you are a Capital Pilot and do not know what the Jumpplanner is all about? Or if you are simply interested in the history of the Jumpplanner, read About the Jumptools (http://www.eve-icsc.com/jumptools/about.php) or watch EVE TV report about the Jumpplanner (http://www.eve-online.tv/show.aspx?id=17) (starts at 5:32).
