Setting up UI and Overview settings.

Just came back to EVE after a couple of years and the UI is bugging me worse then ever. Tried to google some good combat overview settings but I'm having trouble adjusting just simple stuff (no idea why) like rearranging ship type -> target speed and how much space it should give to each window.

I need some decent settings and overview loadouts primarily focused on PVE in highsec / lowsec. And would also much appriciate to see some screenshots of how you setup your own overview settings and where you place the different combat menus and stuff on a 1920x1080 screen and any other useful links you have because I've been trying to get it right for a few hours but just not getting the feel for it.

Really hope someone here can help me out before my head explodes xD

Also interested in this as I'm also a returning player. Having your overview set up right seems to be very important =)

Highly suggest reading this thoroughly, and then following all the steps exactly. You can always throw away the settings in the guide if you don't like them, but in general they're pretty decent.

Then go back and read it again.

It will give you a good understanding of how to set up your overview to accomplish the goals that the guide author indicates. From there, you should be able to adapt to taste.
