Could we get locator agents to link the character name and station?

All great stuff, making the game more logical.

However, please help me witha small change to the overview:

Can we change "Add to Overview" in the right click menu to have two options "Add to all Overview Tabs" plus "Add to active overview tab only"? That would make the job of customising your overview easy, rather than the fight against the UI it is now. It seems like this would be possible, without changing the format or structure of the underlying XML?


Perhaps having the ability to lock a tab in the overview from being changed/added to would do the same thing but could require something that changes the underlying XML


I'll look into this, don't get your hopes up though - the overview is a fragile little flower Blink

There is a bug report in on this but while you can access the overview settings in station using the short cut if you try to modify it any changes you make do not save.

If i dont know something about EVE. I check https://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/ISK_The_Guide

See you around the universe.

Amazing, thanks for the response. I won't get my hopes up; Having broken my overview more times than I care to remember across all my accounts I expect changing anything to do with the Overview interface is non-trivial at best or it would have been looked before now.

Keep up the brilliant work.

Hi,

I have lots and lots of those little yellow note accessories from ussing them to work out manufacturing costs rather than a spreadsheet - firstly I dont suppose we could have about twice the capacity on each note? I think they were reduced in size back when the bios also got chopped, so many of them scream at me about not saving changes etc - there's also no obvious character count that I saw until you come to save it.

Just wondering if it'd also be possible to share them with that lovely drag and drop to chat feature, along with some improved sorting mechanics. Thanks.

Oh and, Cute bab!

In the loyalty shops, is it possible to look up market values of an item. I now have to press the i next to a product and then press the view market details button. A right click menu would solve it.

RE: Label when adding contact

Wow, almost! Being able to add the group label when adding the contact is a good step....

...now can I get that label to display on the portrait when the player signs on/off?

Situation: Player has 200+ contacts all mix of standings. Now way to tell if those 3 reds that just signed on are titan pilots, merc's, old frienamies, possible hot drop targets, etc. On the other hand that blue pilot that just signed on, are they in my corp? alliance? high sec industrial contact? Arg, cant tell, have to click on -every-single-portriat- to view the lables.

Solution: Similar to how the standings display at the bottom of the portrait w/ a red/blue background have the first 8 to 16 characters of the label display across the top of the portrait. transparent gray background with the text overlaid.

Follow up: CCP Punkturis, will you be attending fanfest?

TIA

I would sacrifice a cute, furry animal on webcam for the ability to fit up to 100 identical ships at once.

UI wise, I'd like to be able to right-click an already open fitting window, and have the option "Assemble copies of this ship". Then, the game provides you one warning about rigs (if your UI is set up to do so), then brings up something like the manufacturing materials needed interface, showing only your repackaged hulls and repackaged modules and ammo and repackaged drones and rigs.

If you have enough materials, it assembles all the ships for you and names them "Talos 1" "Talos 2"... "Talos 23". If you don't have enough materials, it gives the same feedback on what you are missing as the manufacturing window.



I'll forward your request/ideas to Game Design Big smile


Something similiar to this with reguards to buying fits off the market would also be fantastic. I could dock at Jita and open a saved fitting and select buy option. It would open a window and list all the total value of the lowest cost modules and hull, and put little red x's next to modules not available in station. Would really make my trips to Jita much less miserable.

Would be really nice to dock in my pod - open a fitting - buy with one click - fit with one click(already implemented) - and then im off to lose my ship again!

Also, is the kill right icon still bugged on overview? I feel like i have checked that box in my overview like 10 times but still only see the icon on the lock image rather than my overview.

Not that it's "one-click-buy-all", but you do know that you can drag a fit into your Quickbar in the market? Having the fits there can speed up your shopping trips quite a bit Smile

While on the subject of the Qucikbar, can we get it so that we can add things to the QB directly from the buy window? Unless I'm just totally doing it wrong, I wasn't getting an "Add to Quick bar" option unless I had purchased the item and had one in stock to right click on.

two things.

- a right click on map to switch between solar system map and star map.

- make the radial menu work when hide all brackets are on. Eg so I can click on my ship and Bookmark etc.

thanks for little things
