Fighter UI Improvments

Example Fighter UI

Just a quick concept I threw together, pushing my Photoshop skills to their limits.

Each squadron has its own orbit, keep at range, and recall buttons. Then, added to the left column of buttons, I've included orbit and keep at range buttons for selected squadrons.

Maybe CCP wants fighter management to be a tedious process. But, in case they don't, I'm promoting this as an extension to what we have now.

Thanks for reading!

Fighter management isn't tedious enough to justify cluttering the UI with buttons for orbit and keep at range when we already have buttons for those things.

FTFY

In all seriousness, CCP has an isk problem atm. They posted record profits last year due to skill injecting addictions and a fun war. Now that a generous amount of new cap pilots have entered the fold, they will lose said profits this year unless they nerf the isk income. That's the real reasoning behind Rorq's nerfs as well since some of the changes make no sense and have only created a vitriolic response from the majority of long term players.

I would become a cap pilot for this

I wear my goggles at night.

Any spelling/grammatical errors come complimentary with my typing on a phone

I want this.

Some call me insane. If the universe is sane, then I embrace that label.

My ridicule, heavy criticism and general pale outlook about your or CCP's ideas is nothing but an encouragement to prove me wrong. Give it a try.

Great suggestion!

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

Thank you for the kind words; and yes, even the critical input.

If I really had my way... The UI would also give me direct visual indication of Fighter damage in percentage, at the very least; if not actual health bars. The hovering thing is meh when you've got your tooltip delay set high.

Why don't you go fix that for them by blasting holes in people using swarms of frigates?

In all seriousness, destroyed items = less net income. This means CCP's issue would be fixed and the economy would be more driven.

I'd support this for drones as well. It's a pain in the rear for me to divvy up my drones on different pirates quickly.
