New Eve toy

2008-08-29 21:08:00
Back when I was an RAF cadet, we had to study Aircraft Recognition, presumably on the premise that we'd one day have to know which ones to shoot down.

In Eve, it's often vital to recognise ship types and threats instantly from their names, so I'm working on a flashcards app. This can now be found at http://www.phase.org/Eve/showRandomShip/view/flashcard (or jog your memory at http://www.phase.org/Eve/showRandomShip/ first).

So far it's a click-to-view toy with no scoring - that will follow shortly.

Questions - should this include Rookie ships? Polaris? Jovian? There are 124 "special" ships in the DB which I could filter out. (NB: The Orca's already in there, but with the Rorqual's description).
