About this database

What is this database?
If you play EVE and really don't know, this page can't explain it for you.
Where do I report bugs to?
Poke Adria Eqviis. You can find me in one of the following places: (in order of preference)
  • TEST Discord
  • TEST Jabber (it-office)
  • Mumble, generally in the Therapy. channel
  • Ingame
Do not send a "Hey!" message, just describe what the problem is, what you did, and put any error messages you're getting into a pastebin.
How do I scan moons?
Short version: grab a Survey Probe Launcher and some probes, warp to moons, align to the moon, hit probe launcher, continue with next moon. The long version should be somewhere on a wiki.
How do I get the data into this database?
On the bottom of the survey probe results window, there is a "Copy to clipboard" button. Click it, then go to Submit Data, paste it, and hit Submit.
I see a lot of "do not have permission to view this moon". What gives?
That means someone scanned it, but you are a pleb and cannot view the scan result. This is a political topic, not a database issue — talk to your CEO. To see scan results, you have 2 options:
  • Scan the moon(s) yourself. The database will always show you scan results that you submitted.
  • Get whitelisted for access for the particular Region or Solar System.
Do not contact Adria Eqviis about getting access. I'm the coder, not the admin.
I heard I can download scans from this thing?
You can download your own scans (that you submitted earlier) from your profile page. There is also an option to download the entire database, but that's behind a permissions check for obvious opsex reasons.
How is the ISK valuation calculated?
The database has fixed snapshot values for the price of minerals, taken around October 18th, Jita. It assumes 75% refining efficiency (that's low-balling) and sums up the resulting mineral prices. No reactions or higher-level materials are included in this calculation, and prices will not change even if the T2 marked explodes or implodes.
What are the 3 columns on the ISK valuation?
  • moon goo: value from selling the moon minerals that you get after refining. This is based on the result mineral, not the ore.
  • belt goo: same, but for "normal" (belt) minerals like Tritanium & co. Some of this will be "side" results from mining moon ore (it contains normal minerals too), but the most of it will be from belt ore that spawns on moons.
  • total: duh.
I was planning to make a "all of the moon ore" column (i.e. moon goo and belt goo from moon ore, but not belt ore) but I didn't get to it. Shucks.
What CCPls assumptions does this DB make?
Total ore volume (480000 m³ per day) and refining results are off Sisi data. If they change it, this app will need an update.
How do I claim a moon?
You can't, especially not on this database. This is just scan results.
What are the (green) options on system view?
Since a system tends to have more than one moon, the display is aggregated (or not, if you click "Show all Moons".) The aggregates work like this:
  • System Sum: just cobble everything together. The more moons a system has, the higher the values will be. "Ore groups" will show percentages above 100%, this is expected.
  • System Average: just divides the sum by the number of moons a system has, to give some kind of indication of how valuable a system is overall
  • Best in System: for each ore individually, this grabs the result off the moon with the best yield and uses that. This means the result shown can be an agglomeration of multiple moons, you won't find all of the stuff displayed on a single moon. The point of this is that it's useful when you're looking for some particular moon goo.
  • Show all Moons: makes one f*ck-ass huge table with each moon separately. May take upwards of a minute to load, please don't click "reload".
What's this built on, and by whom?
Adria Eqviis (equinox) built it, using these tools:
  • Postgres
  • Python, Django & Jinja2
  • JQuery, Bootstrap & DataTables
  • Shamelessly stolen Dotlan SVG maps
  • Krita for the background dinosaur
No animals were harmed during the production of this database. No liability is assumed for carpal tunnel syndrome or death by ennui from excessive moon scanning.
