The Implant that won’t Implant

So, I’m not into drugs, don’t get me wrong, they wreck lives. But in EVE they are a necessary part of flying internet spaceships. So I’ve got this implant I bought to increase the CPU so I can have more lovely things on the ship. But it won’t implant… there’s no plugin option!! Just to prove I’m not going mad here’s an image of the menu.

I’m probably going to raise a ticket with the people at CCP but it’s just interesting, because it was there last night, but when I went to plug it in I had to train up another skill which I’ve done. Bizarre.

So today I’m flying a Harbinger. Which is quite exciting, quite nice fun, waiting for some contracts to sell but I’m in no rush.

Not too much to report really I’ll let you know what happens with the “implant” problem because I’m missing out on juicy DPS and I don’t really want to take away from the ship’s structure to add more CPU when I can fit an implant I already have.

Turns out I already had an implant in that socket…well how was I to know I don’t have that man USB ports?

Hi there,

Thank you for contacting us regarding an issue with your implant.

There are generally only two reasons I see when an issue like this occurs. The first is that a pilot will be training a skill which precludes the modification of implants or alternatively, an implant is already in the slot that the new implant requires. Could you please double check both of the above scenarios are not the cause of this for me?

Hi All!

I have an implant in my inventory that I’m trying to implant but it doesn’t have a “plug in” option.
