Dual overview

TL;DR: Give us the ability to drag and drop tabs from the overview to separate overivew windows, just like you can with chat channels.

I like to keep my overview clean and organized, and as such, I have a separate tab for ships in fleet, one for ships not in fleet, one for celestials and gates etc. I make full use of the 5 available tabs in the overview window. But what I would really like, is the possibility of having more than one overview window. For instance, in fleet flights, I'd like to have a window that has the ships not in fleet and one with the celestials so I don't have to miss precious information when switching from one tab to another to prepare my warp out. Another usage scenario would be for miners having an asteroid overview and a ship overview, so they can see when gankers warp to them, without having to scroll through a huge list of Veldspar to notice that one Catalyst.

As an implementation, I think the mechanics behind chat tabs should do just fine. Make the tabs in the overview drag droppable into separate windows. You could put a limit of 2 windows, as I can't see the use for more than 2, but I'll let that for others to discuss. Plus, you'd probably want to limit them so you don't hog the server with too much requests.

You can drag out anything else that has tabs, why not the overview as well? Would make observing stuff in fleet flights more interesting.

If you're gonna post here thinking your idea is the greatest thing since bacon and that it will save EVE and possibly all humankind with it, you're gonna have a bad time.

This needs to be a thing. But one would have to be able to be made to be the primary so the brackets and the scanner would know which to follow.

In general, the overview needs some love.

Yeah I guess the main overview window could be primary and the tabs that you drag out of it would not affect the brackets and dscan. You could make the secondary windows look different so that you always know which is your primary.

Bumpitty bump bump.
As a Logi pilot, this would make my life SIGNIFICANTLY easier.
One overview to watch Friendlies, one to watch Hostiles.
Easy Targeting of Friendlies combined with knowing who is targeting and when im at risk of being tackled.

This can also be applied to other aspects of the game:
Missioning (One overview for loot, one for NPCs)
Mining (One overview for Ore, one for Combat ships that may Gank you)
Incursions (Logi, as above, DPS, Monitor Targets and Competing Fleets?)
