This.
CCPlease, change this icon color

Better still: change the icon.

Why does it need to represent the ship type that the player is flying? He presumably already knows that.

I would suggest that the 'Look at my ship' icon from the radial menu is the most suitable and would be instantly recognisable.

My 4mil character would love 400k worth of training. Just fyi. And I sure do hope you give it to me and not just new characters, because that's stupid and unfair.

I fail to see how the cloak timer dumbs things down. If anything, it dumbs it down less as you can now actually make decisions based off your remaining cloak timer instead of just guessing.

We are looking into changing the icon for you own ship so it's unique.

All looks well here...

Wormhole systems can now be auto-linked - what does this mean? im confused here, throw me a bone.



Added an in-space bracket for own ship. Only shows when zoomed out - is there an option to turn this off? brackets? I simply prefer to not have an icon in the middle of space when i zoom out. its not natural to see an icon in space when you are so far away. idk it just makes it feel less realistic.


I like the timers, but the color scheme doesnt bring that old school eve feel to me... I really miss the metallic looking finish on the icons and the neocom... thankfully though, i can still get that same color scheme from when I started before they made all those changes. I really miss that. :/ but ya know, I think they are cool, I like that they stand out... so thats likely why they are bright colors, etc.


Where is the cap booster injector effect? i thought ccp was gonna add that idea i had where the gold ripple effect will occur now when you cap inject, for more added visual pleasures, ofc! :) TwistedRoll

Yay, a visible/graphical jump-cloak timer! Cool

Is there a graphical station undock timer in the works, too?

It's already there, top left corner of the screen. The session change timer is so short now that it's easy to miss it.

The session change timer is not the same as the undock invulnerability timer, which is the one I had in mind.


Ohhhhh...yeah...that one! Oops. Good point.

-It might be cool to add a colortag setting for it, too. Not sure what you'd call it. Pilot is Pilot? :)

-It's kind of cool that the outline shows the type of ship you're in. What about changing the outline color instead of shape?

Yes because the average IQ of EVE players has decreased point by point with every patch...every change...I mean, I rather play 06-2010 EVE than the past five years of getting more and more retardedness......the last update that I can remember that was worth anything was inferno...after that, everything has been crap after crap after crap. That is probably why I now only own 2 toon compared to 15, 6 years ago. That is why the average number of players online on a Saturday afternoon has gone from fifty thousand plus to a ****** seventeen thousand and under. Whatever you are doing CCP...keep going. We will just adapt and maybe even change games...It is not 2008 anymore, you do have competition now. :)

You got rid of the system voice message "The asteroid has been depleted." Is there any chance you would put this back in? Mining is boring and a friendly ship voice from time to time is much welcome not to mention I'm usually looking at fits when the asteroid pops, and subsequently lose an amount of time not mining.

These two quotes weren't very constructive. How does having a timer on the jump gate cloaking negatively affect your gameplay? When they changed out the overview icons, they were told by many how it hurt gameplay, giving specific examples. That the playerbase was ignored doesn't change the need to be constructive in general.

Thank you. And I'll second/third the 'jump/fight' feeling of suddenly seeing what appears to be another player on the grid, then having it turn out to be something else.

I'd say part of the shrinking numbers come from a lack of effective outreach (advertising, etc). There may be outreach, but as the numbers seem to still be low, it's in need of more effective methods. Place EVE advertising where it hasn't been, perhaps?

Thats why you dock up, or have second screen....i dont like or suport CODE. but it sounds like your a prime canidate for them.
How about paying attention to your game and playing it.....that goes for other guy as well whining about it.

Multiboxing.....quit being lazy and play the game.
Not mulitboxing....well manually maintaining your lasers while mining grants you better efficiency and faster mining then waiting for the rock to pop like a bot.....quit watching netflix ro whatever or dock up.....

But sheesh, quit whining.

Pretty happy with most of the changes, except the way the trollceptor problem has been addressed. Some aspect of inty nullification should have been changed instead of the current choice.

Regarding the multi buy, it is a great feature. This said, It would be nice to have the multibuy option too on the information window after you fit your ship from the items already in your hangar and the systems shows you the modules that are still missing from your inventory. Being able to buy all of those from the information window would be great!

Please make it an arrow to indicate the current direction your ship is going. It would be best when using the tactical overlay.

While offering a choice of unique icon for your ship bracket, how about adding in that customizable icons for overview option as was promised?

I also like the 'The asteroid has been depleted' audio message. Although this has been gone for a bit, I also liked the little message that would pop up in local when I finished out a 'formerly known as Gravimetric' scanned belt. That was a nice little item and I missed it when it stopped.


As for the person accusing miners of whining, I'll play my way and make my requests. Sorry if you find such things so offensive as to go on a verbal tirade concerning them.

The self-ship bracket needs to be a different color, or at least show corp/ alliance/ fleet status. Right now when I'm zoomed out I see a neutral ship on grid with me and I freak out since local should be blue and overview shows nothing. If it was the blue NPC color but hollow that would work.


Please do this...

CCP should add more NPC 0.0 space to open it up and liven things up: the Stepping Stones project.
