Tools of the Trade Part 2: Eve-Scout

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to the second part of my “Tools of the Trade” series. This post will be relatively short and will cover the Eve-Scout tool, which is owned and maintained by Johnny Splunk and the explorers of the Eve-Scout Enclave Alliance.

To really understand the purpose of this tool, one has to be familiar with the system that is it’s purpose to make Thera more easily accessible to everyone in Eve. Thera is a massive 342au wormhole system that was introduced with the December 2014 Rhea expansion. It is a “Shattered” wormhole, which means most planets are shattered and there are no moons. Thera is has TONS of entrances and exits at any given time, and keeping track of them is the purpose of Eve-Scout.

Use of the Eve-Scout tool is simple. If you wish to find the nearest entrance to Thera, you simply plug in your current system into the “Jumps to/from Thera” search box, and click “Update”. You then click the “Jumps” column and it will sort it by distance from the system you searched. To find an exit close to your destination, you do the same thing as finding an entrance, but you put your destination in the search box.

Due to the unique nature of Thera and it’s various wormhole connections, it almost always has multiple routes to/from High, Low, and Nullsec, as well as connections to other wormholes. This makes it VERY useful as a “shortcut” if you wish to travel vast distances in a smaller amount of jumps, and Eve-Scout makes it extremely easy to do so.

If you’re thankful for what the Eve-Scout Enclave and Signal Cartel do, thank the next member you see, join up, or consider donating to the efforts. Instructions for doing so can be found here: http://www.eve-scout.com/thera/contribute/

  1. Most of the time when our scouts who are in EvE-Scout scan down a sig, they also add corp bookmarks for both sides. This means our members can typically use holes into and out of Thera without having to scan them down. Did you know about those? By right-clicking in space in a system with a Thera hole, you can see the bookmark in your pop-up menu. Also it’s worth noting that EvE-Scout is a crowd-sourced endeavor and that scouts (who can belong to any corporation) are paid strictly via donations each week. Thanks for the blog love for the service!
