Since it can often be hard to find or click on something in three dimensional space, EVE Online provides a useful tool called the "overview" to make life easier. The overview window lists objects and ships in your general vicinity and is one of EVE 's most important tools for providing situational awareness. Whether you're mining, running missions, pirating or engaging an enemy fleet , almost every activity in space relies heavily on using the overview.
Last week's closure of EON , the quarterly print magazine dedicated to EVE Online , barely registered on the MMO news meter. CCP's MMO boasts somewhere in the neighborhood of 500,000 subscribers, but apparently few of them were willing to part with enough meatspace money or ISK to keep EON afloat. I'll miss the mag, even though I've never been anything other than a casual EVE player. The high-quality layout and the absence of real-world advertising made for a terrific reading experience, as did some of the fanfic, the interviews, and the full-page corporation spreads. I'd love to see an EON-like publication for several different MMOs, in fact, but I'd prefer it on my tablet at this point.
The Overview (pictured left) in Eve is is a vital tool for all Pilots. Regardless of whether you are a Trader, Miner, or Warrior – when you undock that ship, the Overview tells you more about what is going on around you than anything else. Additionally, it is one of the easiest places to interact with other objects in space. As such, it’s important to master the configuration of this little beast we call " The Overview ”. Unfortunately, it’s not a straightforward nor easy process. Like much of the Eve-Online Interface, it is enveloped in arcane references to technical terms and then hidden behind a shroud of poor user interface mechanics.

Once I get some more posters who request more information or fixes, I will update with a new post and better consolidated. ADVANCED COLUMNS • Icon : These icons can be a huge help for “on the fly” check of what type of ship you are up against, turrets, stations, planets, etc. For NPCs, the symbol is represented by a red cross. The smallest cross is a frigate and the cross gets bigger and thicker the higher in ship class you go. For players, the symbol is represented by an incomplete square, with four corners but the sides are not connected.

Dear own3D business partners, own3D and its management, having evaluated the future of own3D, have decided to cease operations on January 31st, 2013. After efforts to sell the company fell through and after much deliberation this seems to be the best course of action. As the first livestreaming portal for gamers own3D had a turbulent start with unexpected growth. We have tried to drive the company into profitability but due to the capital intensive nature of our industry and increasing competition, we have not been able to reach sustainability despite our best efforts. This is a difficult decision for all of us at own3D given the impact it will have on partners who have helped build this business.
