The popular fitting tool EveHQ is announcing it’s development discontinuation:
After more than 7 years developing EveHQ, it is now time to call it a day.
Having taken on a new job (technically, 2 new jobs) at the end of July, things have been busy and I can’t see I’ll have any time to actively develop EveHQ as well as everything else I want to do in my free time, so something needs to give way. Version 3 has had no development at all in the past few weeks and version 2 has only received minor updates to keep up with Eve patches. Therefore, the 2.10.1 version released last week is the final ever update.
The website will stay up for the next month or so until the hosting expires and of course, the source code will remain up indefinitely if someone has the desire to take the project over.
It has been fun and challenging working on EveHQ all this time. Thanks to all those that have supported the project through your words and wallets, and I’m sorry that I can no longer continue, but I need to move on. Maybe I will return one day but until then, I look forward to trying out some other well known Eve tools for the first time
Corelin from Mad Haberdashers putted it perfectly:
I don’t blame him, real life trumps EvE every time, but EvE HQ will rapidly age without maintenance and be practically unusable without a caretaker. I wish the best of luck to Vessper and hope he finds time to come back some day and resume his dominance of the 3rd party tool world.
Is a shame, although there exist other tools as EFT and EveMon – EveHQ was the only one merging everything together, so is a big loss for the community.
Hopefully CCP Games could pick up where EveHQ left.

Just to update everyone…I’ve been talking to someone who is willing (and able) to take over the project, from coding to the website. We’ve discussed the potential major issues and they’re covered. Just need to sort out the finer details now but I’ll keep people informed as it develops.
Keep your fingers crossed.
