EDK is an Open Source Killboard for EVE-Online, maintained by the EVE Development Network.
This is the EVE Development Network Killboard, created for EVE Online corporations and alliances. Based on the EVE-Killboard created by rig0r, it is now developed and maintained by the EVE-Dev group. All EVE graphics and data used are property of CCP. The Abyss Tracker is a 'killboard' for your Abyssal Deadspace runs - you can save your exact loot saved, aggregated and compared with others. This is currently version 1.10. This is the EVE Development Network Killboard, created for EVE Online corporations and alliances. Based on the EVE-Killboard created by rig0r, it is now developed and maintained by the EVE-Dev group. All EVE graphics and data used are property of CCP. Webserver (Apache) PHP 5.0.0+ Mysql 4.10.+ GD 2 or higher; Releases.
To be able to install successfully you need a webserver with:
- PHP >= version 5.2
- the GD Library
- MySQL >= version 5.0
- MySQLi must be installed
You will need the PHP Zip and Xml extensions in order to use the automatic update system.
After you have unpacked the files in the archive to your installation path, point your browser to the install (i.e. http://kb.example.com/kb/install ) folder and follow the steps provided.
You need to set some special rights on some of the folders:
- The cache directory needs to be writable by the user that the webserver runs as. Setting it to be world writable (mode 777 on unix - 'chmod -R 777 cache') will work fine (the cache directory may still not be writable for the killboards php scripts if SELinux is in use, 'chcon -R -t httpd_sys_rw_content_t cache' should solve that).
Setting the KB to load kills via the API
You will first need an API key with killlog access. This can be found at http://support.eveonline.com/api/Key/CreatePredefined/256
- Go to the admin page for your killboard
- Select API Killlog from the list of sections.
- Enter the details of the key
- To manually retrieve kills click on 'Import Mails'
Loading Kills from other Killboards
- Go to the admin page for your killboard
- Select Feed Syndication from the list of sections.
- Enter the url of the feed you wish to use. This will usually be http://boardurl/?a=idfeed
- Click on Save.
- gzip compression is known to cause problems on some systems. Disable this if you have problems.
zKillboard (short: zKill) is a public killboard. It collects killmails and publishes them for everyone to read. The EVE Online community uses it for many purposes, the most common of which is to check how much was destroyed in a fight thus who the 'winner' is. It is also often used to gather intel and check out what fits people use.
A killmail is sent to the victim, the pilot who landed the killing blow, and their corps. For a killmail to be registered on zKill, one of these entities has to give zKill the right to access it in their name (via a corp/character API). Being that zKill is the most popular killboard, most corps or individuals allow it to pull their killmails.
zKillboard provides a search function. You can search and thus filter for
- character, corporation, and alliance names;
- ship types and classes;
- solar systems and regions. (But afaik not constellations.)
Where reasonable you can narrow down to kills, losses and solo.
Further it is possible to filter for certain categories. Known categories are: awox, ganked, npc, highsec, lowsec, nullsec, wh, abyssal. These filters can be combined through manipulation of the url.
Let's say you want to know all Velator losses by EVE University:
- You type the uni's name in the search box, and the resulting page will have the url https://zkillboard.com/corporation/917701062/ because 917701062 is the corresponding corp ID.
- Similarly, the search for 'Velator' results in the url https://zkillboard.com/ship/606/ because 606 is the ship ID for the Velator.
- If you now combine those two urls and append '/losses/' to the end, the resulting URL is https://zkillboard.com/corporation/917701062/ship/606/losses/ you will see all Velator losses by E-UNI.
The reverse order https://zkillboard.com/ship/606/corporation/917701062/losses/ works too, but 'losses' has to be at the end. Further, it is possible to search for several things of the same kind, for example: https://zkillboard.com/corporation/917701062/ship/601,606/losses/ gives you all Ibis (601) and Velator (606) losses by E-UNI. This can be done with more than two things and, not only with ships, but also other categories like systems. Go ahead and experiment and find out which combinations work. But keep in mind that some combinations require a certain order while others not.
You can use the website http://mossworks.xyz/zkillsearch/ to automatically create urls for you. But note that it doesn't include all options because zKill's options are expanded from time to time.
Some more hints on advanced zkill-fu can be found on https://www.sacah.net/2018/08/zkillboard-url-fu.html - note especially the /reset/ keyword which allows you to filter on both victim and attacker..
As you can access zKillboard through an API. You can, in theory, apply any filter you may wish if you take the time to write the code for it.
Eve Online Character Search
zKillboard can be used in various ways to gather intel. You can check out an alliance what kind of ships (and fits) they like to fly and their common online times. If you face a certain target you can search for the pilot and his losses in that specific hull. Eve online anomic mission guide. Most pilots tend to stick with similar fits, so you can get a good idea of what the target might be flying. You can even click on export -> EFT and copy & paste the fit into Pyfa to simulate it.
