Splunkworks, named as a homage both to the famous Lockheed Skunkworks and to Signal Cartel founder Johnny Splunk, is the division of Signal Cartel that provides advice to members on selecting, fitting, and flying the best ship for their needs.
Splunkworks services are available via the “Splunkworks” area of theforums, via the Discord channel “#fitting-lab”, and via the in-game channel “Splunkworks SC”. Our Splunkworks Lead, Scarsan Stripes, and Splunkworks Fit Specialists Snyypa Voltron, Fonsui, and Aliza Kootz, normally respond promptly to requests for help, as do many super-knowledgeable and skilled members of the Signal Cartel community.
We also post semi-regularly on the Splunkworks area of our corp forums, including sample ship fits with discussion and “Bad Fit Challenge” posts that teach how to avoid some easily-made fitting mistakes.
Regular offerings include updating and revising the Corp Fits, instituting fun “Fitting Challenge” contests, and providing more detailed guides for common Signal Cartel use cases, such as Covops Exploration and Wormhole PvE. Our Splunkworks group also serves as our go-to consultants for Fleet Doctrine concept planning.
