New icon looks awesome. Please CCP don't listen to these idjits who hate change so much that even a tiny icon makes them run around with their skirts up over their heads crying like little girls who lost their favorite dollies.

Change is good.

Amazing that so many couldn't figure out it isn't a suitcase, it's an Eve version of a medical kit. Roll

"Damage Control" on ships is similar to "Triage" in the medical field. The medical field uses a medical kit.


But yeah, the new icon is cool.

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

I would think something more like this would work P

It's just a quick mock-up, but it feels more comfortable to me P


That looks... GREAT!!!

The idea of the image as a suitcase matches the "first aid kit" aspect of the modual. (http://www.graphicsfuel.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/first-aid-kit-icons.jpg)

In almost every case of artistic review the spirit of the original has been upheld. In this case, you have taken one of the most iconic icons in the game (so much so that it is referred to by "suitcase" instead of DCU) and removing the most iconic part of it.

Chances are in 6 months no one will care about this, but I for one think there are far better icons to change. Please let us keep the suitcase. I will feel... unprepared without it.

Passive Damage Control please, & do whatever you want with the icon, especially if it looks nice like the one linked.

I agree about iconic.
However, I think it should remain active. If you arrange your modules correctly then it makes no difference. I dance my fingers across my Function keys and flip on my tank automatically.

Active damage control acts as a heavy neuting detector. You know they're neuting the **** out of you if even your DCII shuts off :)

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

Good thing you are hugging a carrier to swop in a battery at the time, right? P

This is a very good idea +1. Make it happen CCP.

Can't *anything* stay the same for old times' sake? Gee whiz. You took away the awesome old cyno effect, can't we at least keep the suitcase? What?

No, this is not a joke.

Icon art, like all other elements of EVE's graphics and UI, is always on the table for review. As it happens, replacing the "suitcase" with something that better fits the theme of EVE has been on various to-do lists, as I understand it, for several years.

EVE used to be packed full of weird things and that's exactly what made it so interesting.

in recent years CCP have done everything they can to make EVE logical to the point of it becoming very boring. looking at weird things used to be fun, I remember the old turrets and how they looked badass. now some autocannons look like they're taken out of reality and not science fiction, and laser turrets look like potatoes with bits of metal and LEDs stuck in them.

The one last weird thing (that I can think of right now) is the briefcase icon of the Damage Control. I log on to Singularity once in a while and that icon just doesn't feel right. it looks a lot more like an Intel CPU than a module that has anything to do with damage control. In the mean time, on TQ I know my fits are complete and made just right when there is a briefcase in the fitting window. because when there is a briefcase, you know everything is going to be fine.

CCPls. gib briefcase.

Change is good.

if you wanna see people cry tears, go wardec a carebear corp. EVE is not about your own wish to see people cry.
