The d-scan window no longer shows the precision tracking camera button. I haven't found it yet, and it probably doesn't exist. The normal tracking camera also does not work for this, because it does not aim towards the center.

Fix it.

Fix it now.

The camera button next to the scanner button that you used to pop the scan window up now has lots of options.

They moved it to the HUD. There is an option there to turn on the "Camera through the center of the ship" tracking camera.

I suggest you read the Dev Blog

Confirming the center-tracking button is down in the radial menu.

Still, fix it. Who in their right mind wants to go through a bunch of menu's to perform an action that was previously available with a simple check-box, which was right where it was needed.

Fail to notice the brand new button that is right next to the button that opens the scanner in the first place, I assume? xD

I see it, and I don't like it. They moved a d-scan function that was previously ON the d-scan window, and put it in a radial menu. At least put the checkbox back.

Welcome to the General Discussion battleground for Patch Day. War is hell kid.

Its actually more like a food fight in this case.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

But the patch disabled the previous state, which was to have it enabled.

So then you have to research to see if it's a bug or if they hid the feature somewhere, or removed it.

I'm so angry I'm going to gank some nullbears.

Now, now.. you were going to do that any way.

It took me as many as 5 seconds to find where it's been moved to and I haven't even read the patch notes yet.

Press C. When you press C, pay attention to the little glowing blue button on your HUD.

CCP has become obsessed with sticking everything on radial menus lately. I blame that coke-head in marketing, as always.

I like, and make frequent use of, the radial menu they implemented in Odyssey. I know I'm not the only one.

Enjoying the rain today? ;)

That custom tracking camera is awesome if you want to five degree scan cosmic sigs... Put the square where you want it (over the custom sigs) and bam! Instand five degree scan. Really really helpful!

Quoted from Doc Fury: "Concerned citizens: Doc seldom plays EVE on the weekends during spring and summer, so you will always be on your own for a couple days a week. Doc spends that time collecting kittens for the on-going sacrifices, engaging in reckless outdoor activities, and speaking in the 3rd person."
