EVE Online Ship Maintenance Bay Calculator

Project Description

EVE Ship Maintenance Bay Calculator

Esmbc is a command line ship volume calculator for EVE online. It would probably be of most use to EVE pilots that own and fly carriers.


$ esmbc hound:3 talwar:2 sabre:1 rupture:1 hurricane:1 tornado:1

Sabre: 43,000m3
Talwar: 86,000m3
Tornado: 216,000m3
Rupture: 96,000m3
Hound: 84,300m3
Hurricane: 216,000m3
Total: 741,300m3

Esmbc accepts ship names and quantities with the colon character used as a seperator.

The pairs are seperated by a single whitespace.

Ship names which contain a white space should have it replaced with an underscore, all other special characters should not be entered. Republic Fleet Firetail should be entered as republic_fleet_firetail.

Case is not important. Rifter, RIFTER and rifter will all be matched correctly.


It’s possible to just use esmbc without installation by just calling the module:

python -m esmbc

To do so download a zip of this repo or clone it.

git clone git://

If you wish to actually install esmbc on your system the prefered way would be to use pip.

$ pip install esmbc

or use obtain this repository as previously mentioned and:

$ python install


Esmbc had been tested on Python 3.3 and Python 2.7.

If you wish to install the module then distribute is required.

Ship/Volume Data File

The ship and volume data file that is required is supplied (ships.json).

You also have the option to build your own data file. This may be required in the future as CCP release new ship types.

A script is included to access a sqlite version of the CCP community data dump and output a JSON string of the ships and their volumes.

$ python > ships.json


esmbc is released under the GPLv3 license
