EveMON, You Complete Me

The latest update for EveMON came out and its new features include the Skill Queue! Finally!

As you can see by my alt on the left, the queue shows what is in it and when it all finishes. Plus it notifies when the queue has free space on it with a prominent text banner.

This is especially handy for when you are doing a bunch of short skills and you forget if there is one more after the currently queued up skill or not. Which unfortunately happens all too often to me.

Also included in this update is the ability to view your active market orders if you enter the full API key.

All in all, nice new features to the already indispensable tool.

Speaking of skills (see what I did there?), I'm almost finished the leadership skills. Yeah, I know I'm supposed to be done already but I felt bad about not completing Information Warfare V and getting a few levels of Information Warfare Specialist to complete the set. OCD and all that, ya know?

Then I've decided to complete my Tengu skills, then Interdictors, then Gallente Cruiser V. So I'm busy for the rest of the winter.

Derranna is done Medium Tech II Projectiles and is working diligently on the support skills for Tech II Large projectiles. Still a long slog ahead of her but she should be rocking in a pimped out Minmatar Maelstrom by the summer.


  1. Yay! I've been waiting to see the skill queue in EveMon. I can never remember many skills I have queued up and actually hacked together a script to email me my queue status every morning so I wouldn't end up losing a training day while at work.

  2. Is there a way to push the skill queue onto the calendar?

  3. You mean the external calendar? i.e. Outlook/Google? At the moment no, although that is a good idea. There is no way to push skills to the scheduler built into EVEMon, the scheduler is designed to give you warnings in the user interface if a skill finishes at a time when you will not be available.
