This would be really useful. See when people have accepted your contract, that being auction bids, courier contracts. etc.


Just gonna snipe the next page here.

i think this feature is great, turning off those fuel notifications... thats just incredible :)

anyway, iv'e found a problem.
normally, it wouldn't be an issue, since most people tend to log off inside a station, or a pos.
when logging in, it takes about 15 seconds from the second my character was loaded into the game, to the moment the game becomes responsive.

i have tried to turn the feature on and off multiple times, across multiple characters, and im pretty confident its related to the beta notification system.
when i had it turned off, the game was responsive right as the character loaded.
when it was turned on, the character loaded, the game started playing its sounds (e-warp sound, warp effects, and the rats starting to agro my ship), but the game was not responsive and the screen was black for about 15 seconds.

i tried it a few times across multiple accounts and the results were the same

Would it be possible to move the "Clear Notification History" button to the right of the "Notification Settings" button when you click on the notifications icon? It would save a step.

I am currently away, traveling through time and will be returning last week.

We should have the possibility to pin-it to the Neocom; or make it a Neocom button. I can't really find it a good other place on my screen/ui. The notifications could appear in a column like the Neocom sub-menu.


I'd love to be able to move it just above the clock, in the neocrom bar, but align bottom.

There's some weirdness going on when editing the watch list. Removing a contact from the watch list gets you a notification, and adding a new contact (using "Add contact to watchlist") gets you two notifications.

Unless i've overseen it, but i'm missing in this new notification system the ability to assign a shortcut to open the notification history.

Please change the color of the notification counter to something other than LOUD RED.

This may seem like a little thing, but it was this terrible aesthetic alone that made me stop using this system. On top of that, it is an objectively poor design choice given that the only other occurrence of red in the UI (outside a couple neocom icons) is to indicate the presence of enemies and inform the player of damage dealt and received. Notifications are not immediately necessary for combat, so it would be better if this notification counter was grey instead of red, so as to fit in with the rest of the UI and be less distracting.

Two things that would be nice for the notifications:

1. Make it possible to interact with notifications more, like how the "Contact logged in" Portrait currently gives you the ability to right click it and interact with the person instantly - like if you want to re-invite a DC'd person to a fleet or want to open a chat with someone who just logged in via right clicking - this was fine and possible so far, not anymore with the new notifications.


2. Let us choose which notifications actually add to the counter of unread notifications.
I don't care much about a "You have received a new Reaper and one Unit of Trit" notification and I may not care about everyone who logged in either (If I want to see details, I can always look up the notification history), but I certainly want to know how many important notifications were actually missed, like attack/reinforcement notifications or POS fuel warnings.

Maybe even create two types of priorities for unseen notifications, a green number for "trivial" things and a red number for critical warnings, both freely chooseable but with a senseful preset?

Apparently, adding a contact that you don't add to the watchlist still gets you an online notification.

When I get a skill training completed, when I am not online. It appears I get two notifications, one when the training actually completes, and one when I log on and the "skill training completed" sound is played.

Example

Probably only a newbie like me can see the difference... The first one you mentioned is obvious, but the one from the log in is a SUMMARY of all your trained skills. Today I got "Skill Training Complete - 2 Skills". A left click on this notification takes me to my skill history and marks both skills. I hope this summary will be removed because it is not needed anymore. All the trained skills are listed right below that summary and marked as new.

+1 or make it at least configurable.

Btw, I turned of the sound because I couldn't stand the DING-please-fasten-your-seatbelt-and-stop-smoking-sound when somebody from my contacts goes online. We are flying freaking spaceships and not some lousy 747! Even my Ibis shouldn't sound like that. Ugh

I'd like to suggest a right clic on a notification to dismiss it when it pops up.

I think this is awesome so far and long overdue....

IdeaHow about adding the Notification "Clear" History and "Restore" History as a click button next to the "Settings Wheel" instead of having to open the settings to do so?

Idea I would like to see some "Industry" Notifications also...such as "Job Completed" or "Corporate Job Completed" with all the bells and whistles other notifications have now that folks can selectively choose what they want to see.

Thanks for all your efforts! This is a much better improvement / feature to the game than a lame cloak graphic Ugh which they tout like a freaking main selling feature!!! Send the marketing department back to WOW if that's the best they can offer.

I would like to have the ability to right click on notification, for example: someone on my watch list goes online and if I want to to start an conversation with him, I still need to go search for him in my contacts.

PLEASE, add the standing icons to the portraits of the contacts in char online/offline notifications. Now it is quite confusing to track offwar 'buddies', i have to open contacts window and check them manually :( Thanks!

Also, i think color bars in contact online/offline notiications are too small (at least on 1080p) and i caught myself i have to spend quite a long time to determine am i guessed the status right or not instead of one quick glance. Wouldn't be better to fill the background with red/green color leaving text readable through some tweaks? Thanks.

That noise...still...

Also, why change the color to light blue?

Can you please do something about the overabundance of redundant information that invades our screens when we mouse over the notifications. Please. If i want to read the entirety of all the info on something...i'll read it in the appropriate window...

I like the added contact-color added...you know, same functionality as the old version...finally...yays!

The new notification widget tooltip behavior and content has been fixed.

Ummm, the mouse-over tooltip still displays the entirety of the information in a tall/skinny wall-o-text. Again, we don't need the complete info on something from the notification pop-up...

When will you listen?

Sorry about the misunderstanding - we did not change the tooltips of the actual notifications in this release, just of the widget. The tooltips for the notifications themselves will be improved in Phoebe.

could we have the locator info being copy and pastable from the pop up instead of having too get moved into notifications /mail tab too do it? .. also could the system be linked please?
