Stu is a terrible person and skipping out because of some graduation party so I’m going to rudely jump into the podcast when I get home at about 6:25pm pacific time – Hoots Thanks, Hoots!

The last time someone from Eve was here Eve Fanfest had just wrapped up and we were starry-eyed from all the cool changes announced.

One of the main changes that came to Eve has been the new 6 week release cycle, instead of have big monolithic expansions twice a year. We have already had too pretty big release Kronos and now Crius. Crius, stirred up quite a bit of controversy, as it completely overhauled Industry

I didn’t do much industry before the changes, but afterwards it definitely makes industry clearer and easy to do as a newer players. There is, still, of course the complexity just like anything in Eve, but on the surface, building stuff has change from “spreadsheet” like interface to more user friendly and easy to understand interface.
