There is a drones attack button. I'm not sure what it's called, but I have a hotkey for setting my drones on a target.

But heh, obviously going to the esc. to see that it has keybinds is too much effort for the OP..

Like hitting the undock button and then autopilot is also too much work.

OP is just lazy.

p.s. didn't anybody tell you that Autopilot is slow and dangerous


Hotkeys are fine and dandy but a whole new and IMPROVED drone control interface would be great.

My drones are assigned the following keyboard shortcuts:
Attack: Ctrl+1
Return and orbit: Ctrl+2
Return and dock: Ctrl+3
So there already are keyboard shortcuts, you just have to assign them.

I would kill for a "launch drones and engage" shortcut

even more so if I had one of these for each drone group

Step 1: click the link below, and buy item.

Step 2: set macro for "attack current target" to one of the "G Keys"

Step 3: watch your tiny minions rip into the target like a pack of space wolves

Step 4: watch for aggro shift, so you don't have to hold memorial services for your beloved mechanical friends :(
(PS: I get sad when my drones die. I feel like I've somehow let them down... the fact that the ones who survive still obey me, just makes me even sadder)

That moment when you realize the crazy lady with all the cats was right...

Two ideas that are actually worthwhile. Unlike OP's.

A drone interface rework would be nice.

A log out to character select would be very nice also.

I would like a loot all button. Any wreck or cargo container within range would be looted according to your security lock thingy. I know people cry about making the game ez-mode, but opening 40 wrecks with 80 clicks and then clicking loot 40 more times is nothing but excessive clicking.

Oh, and fixing the tagging system so FC's can click and type in the tag instead of navigating the tagging menu.

/I don't care how much you hate it, a loot all button would be hot for people that fly the noctis

As a T3 pilot I think Id rather be fine with a button that can online everything again after ive swapped subs out :)

As per Jake Warbird, these two would make sense. Though implementation would take a while for a full drone UI improvement.

On the Autopilot, that's just being lazy. I should know, I am lazy as hell.

That's perfect if you want to watch YouTube on your keyboard (It runs on Linux! A Keyboard with its own OS...) while playing fullscreen EVE.

For people who simply want easy drone controls, try a Logitech G510.
