Raise your hand if you knew Pathfinder Online was already playable?
Official EVE Online subreddit: There are also other tools as well like a pathfinder that shows you routes to different locations. I've been following this for a bit since it was mentioned in Eve General. I didn't want to necro a year old thread that wasn't even in the video games section so I just started this one. PATHFINDER is an 'open source' mapping tool for EVE ONLINE,primarily developed to enrich the gameplay of small scale PvP and PvE. Raise your hand if you knew Pathfinder Online was already playable? Yea, me neither. But it is, and my friend Rynnik hooked me up with a buddy key to take a look. To use his words, Pathfinder right.

Yea, me neither.
But it is, and my friend Rynnik hooked me up with a buddy key to take a look. To use his words, Pathfinder right now is 2003 EVE. That’s both the ultimate compliment and a reality check.
The good is the systems behind Pathfinder and the feel of the world are great. The game is very much a virtual world ala EVE, and that is exciting. Fantasy EVE has been something a lot of us have been waiting for since. well almost 2003 really. Sourcetree use ssh key.
The bad is Pathfinder isn’t even close to ready. There is a massive amount of desync going on right now, which is so bad that even PvE combat is terrible. Stuff dies, but you don’t know if you are swinging or not, and it just doesn’t work. Graphically the game is very weak, other window dressing is almost non-existent, and the UI is… well EVE 2003 quality.
What drives me nuts is you have a game like Darkfall, which has hand-down the best combat and ‘feel’ in an MMO, but is missing so much in terms of design and long-term depth. Then you have Pathfinder, which has filled all the holes DF had, but is missing all of DF’s strengths. Can’t someone get both right? I’m not even asking for perfect, but just get both decent to start off?
So yea, Pathfinder is on my radar, and already has a core following that loves it, but until it takes some big steps in a few areas, it’s not something I’m going to dive into right now.
Can you give me an introduction into Pathfinder ?
Unfortunately not. I will probably not have the time to answer any question personally. Make sure you have read the manual.
If there are still some open questions, please ask in the official forums thread for help.
Which browsers are compatible with Pathfinder?
You will get the best user experience with the latest version Google Chrome or Firefox. Pathfinder uses some 'bloody edge' web technologies like SVG graphics, Canvas drawing, CSS3, JS (ECMA 5.0) that are not yet fully supported by any other browser like IE or Safari.
Can i use multiple accounts/characters?
Yes, you can add as many characters to your account you want. By accepting the 'Cookie hint', your current logged-in characters are stored. If you don´t want cookies, you need to re-assign bei CCP´s SSO login the next time.
Cookies are valid for 30 days and will be destroyed on 'logout'. Read more.
Are my data safe?
Pathfinder Eve Online
Whoever said, his program is 'bullet proof', is lying! But I promise to give my very best to protect any personal or map data that is stored on my server. The login process is handled by CCP´s SSO. There is no account data (or even your EVE Online login data) stored or available to Pathfinder.
All client side cookie data is encrypted stored server side and is protected against manipulation or abuse.
Can i report bugs or security issues?
Good work! I am very happy for any technical feedback and improvements. Feel free to contact me with your problem, either by submitting a bug report or contact me in game. I´ll give my best to find a solution for your problem or path Pathfinder.
I don´t trust you, can I host Pathfinder on my own?
Yes you can! I developed this application for the great community of EVE Online. The program code is open source and can be used by anyone who have the required software skills. Please make sure to keep all 3rd party plugin licence and respect them. At the moment there is no developer guide available. But one the beta phase is finished, i will probably write a short technical documentation. Do not expect any 'out of the box' install routine at this point.
