REMOVE and delete old characters who haven't logged in for at least 1 year. Their names should be available to other players again! I hate creating alts and at least some good names being taken by 2005 characters who have obviously not been used for years. There must be something done against those abandoned/orphaned files in the database! Not only gets the database bigger and bigger each time a new character is being created, it also gets slower and takes up more cpu/space. Thats only logical. So please: remove orphaned characters who haven't logged in for 1 year (or make that 2 years, at least do something).



problem with that is that there are people who will leave the game, and after a few years come back to play, i suggest that after a year or 2 of the account being deactivated, the name become available to be used. and if the original player wishes to come back, he/she will be required to enter a new player name, just that under the corp history the name which he/she was using back then will be bracketed

Having back the '3D' weapon icons representing new weapon models -- instead of the current old-school icon art -- would be great. Such stuff impacts overall perception and game immersion quite a bit.


or at the very least add an option for players to pick which type of icon they want (new '3D' one, or the old one which was reverted to after we saw the awesomeness)

How hard would it be to get an animation for drones and fighters launching from ships in the next expansion?

Just having them fly out of whatever appropriate area, like on the Thanatos or new Gallente Destroyer.

In missions when npc ships spawn why not add some kind of visual effect? Like the cyno effect.

In station I would find a refinery hangar tab usefull. So there would be 'Ships' 'Items' and 'Refinery' This would help me because it is difficult to go through your items hangar ctrl-click everything you would like to refine or scroll through the refinery window ticking stuff. One wrong click or drag and its a house of cards you have to start again. If I could gradually put items into a refinery hangar then simply 'sellect all' that would be much smoother.

Currently I dump all items to be refined into a station container then drag them out but that is still an awkward process, plus theres a lot of lag moving large numbers of items that way.

I would also like the Ship hangar to be split up into two seperate hangars, Assembled Ships and Unassembled Ships.

Ooh!

While exploring, it's useful to know signature strength and sig ID so you can choose which sigs to scan down next.

When you are scanning, you sometimes have your probes positioned such that you get an 'echo' or 'mirror' sig. These results have the same ID. If you control-click on these two sigs in your scan results list, it hides the other red signature dots that show up on the solar system map.

This is a kinda awkward way to show us which red dots correspond to which signature IDs.

So my request is: Add a tooltip to the signature results that are shown in solar system map. The tooltip should have the signature ID, signal strength and signature type.

Great thread; some of the past little fixes have been my favorite updates (like being able to view contents of your ships via assets button, thank you for that).

Here's my suggestions:
1. Allow me to change my ******** character name, for a fee of course (and keep character name histories so scammers and thieves can't hide from their past). I just hate my sucky name.

2. Give some sort of audio cue when my ore cargo is full (similar to what happens when an asteroid is depleted..it's a very useful cue to remind me to restart my mining laser), so if I'm semi-afk I'll know it's time to offload.

3. Speaking of helpful reminders, here's an example of a reminder that isn't helpful, "those items are not stackable". Please make her stop saying that. Please! I mean, really...so what you're trying to tell me is that my Genetically Enhanced Livestock are not stackable with my Heavy Pulse Lasers?...are...are you sure because it seems totally legit to me, cows and lasers, of course they stack. No? Well I'll be damned. Thanks for schooling me on item categorization, now why don't you go dump the cows in my cargo hold like I tried to do in the first place before you got all philosophical on me. (This conversation has played out between myself and my monitor speakers numerous times. Maybe I need some meds. But in the meantime could you make Aura a Little less argumentative).

4. Ooh, here's one more. Every once in a while I get a terrifying black box message on my screen that goes something like, "You are an enemy of the Amarr Empire and will now be destroyed, Darth Vador [or other bad guy name]". And for a split second, before I get to the end of the message, I have a mini heart attack before I realize the Amarr Empire is not about to smash me in the face, it's some other guy. I mean, I'm okay and all...as far as heart attacks go, this is the lowest tier. Maybe put the bad guy name at the FRONT of the scary warning. That way I won't nearly soil myself next time I undock in a fancy faction boat.

P.s. if there happens to be a character in the game whose name actually is Darth Vador , I apologies for slandering your good name. I'm sure you're a swell guy.

OH! And a way to differentiate between personal orders and corp orders in the wallet!!! Very important, this one!

There's nothing worse than an EVE player, generally considered to be top of the food chain in the MMO world, that cannot smacktalk with wit and coherency.

It would be cool if there were a corp cargo in POCO so that corp members could swap PI commodities rather than shuttling them all back and forth to the POS. maybe make it a perk available only to the corp that owns the POCO as an added perk. Or an option that the owning corp can unlock for others for a small "rental fee". Or maybe not the whole rental fee since commodities are already taxed. But I'd still like to see corp holds in POCOs.

This can be generalized very nicely. For every dialog that tells you that you can't do something, go through and figure out if a) there's a more charitable interpretation of the action--maybe you just wanted to drop the cows into the hold with the lasers?, or; b) there's a way to automate the process that the dialog is complaining about. For example, if I jump clones while in a ship with my skill queue running, how about either automatically leaving ship; pausing queue; jumping; restarting queue (and hey, maybe make active the ship that that clone last had active!), or just get rid of the restrictions altogether and switch the active ship from one clone's last known active ship to the other's.

Save the "you can't do that" dialogs for situations when i really try to do something that I can't do, like online a module in space when I don't have enough cap--though, even then, you could make the module blink on the HUD and online as soon as I do have enough cap, similar to the way that a turret module blinks when I haven't targeted anything yet--and including the feature where I can click it again to leave it offline if I change my mind. That would be nice and helpful.

- Display damage on crystals in cargo/inventory, what a tin to load single crystals in space every time I want to see if that crystal I'm taking along with another bunch in the middle of a whole mess of crystals is roughly as damaged or if it'll break after 2 shots and **** up my whole gun rack.
- Store all character's settings (graphics, sound, overview, window pos) server-side and make it client-side cached, pain in the rear to spend half an hour putting the client into order when I play on someone else's computer.
- You guys improved the scrollbar? cool, but what about making detailled lists somewhat useable with a horizontal scrollbar?
- Repackage outside stations (POS/cargo hold/container...).
- Make damage an actual percentage and not 0.X %, it's either 0.83 or 83%, not a mix of both.
- Fitting a stack of guns at once and not one by one.

I'd like to be able to light up some kind of distress beacon to show my current position in the overview and cry out for help systemwide.
Additionally I could make my position visible in a mission site which I'm too lazy to salvage, abandon all the wrecks and the salvagers can enter the scene. If you don't want this, just dont reveal your position.

Drone Control Dialog - make the user hierarchy configuration persistent. Having to setup my folder view after every docking is silly and annoying as heck.

For example - if the drones in bay folder is open it should stay open every time I dock and undock the same ship. If a subfolder is open - same. Drones in local space folder should behave the same way.

Fitting management is the access point for fits that you have saved. To access it now you have to go Fitting -> Browse
