The Industry related part of the User Interface in EVE Online will receive a major overhaul and serious improvements!

We are excited to present this third industry related blog in a series which presents the amazing new industry related user interface and the reasons and research behind these changes.

Read all about improvements to the industry user interface in CCP Arrow's dev blog Industry UI.

First, can't wait to read.

Edit: Really liking what I am seeing, can't wait to get to use it.

If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

Awwwwww I still remember the previous screenshot teaser!

Edit : Very detailed devblog, and sweet stuff so far. The UI seems optimized and functional, so god job for that!

Now I think everyone will agree with me... UI is nice, but we're all waiting for industry gameplay devblogs :)

Looks like this one is a little light on fundamental gameplay changes. The UI looks nice, but really got to actually try it out for a little while before I can say much about how much of an improvement it is. I'm sure there will be an adjustment period but at a minimum this looks way better than the old one, so hopefully it's also easier to use as well.

I am interested in what these are:

"get 'workers' availability information"
and
"see delegation/outsourcing options"

from here: http://cdn1.eveonline.com/www/newssystem/media/66065/1/SnI_TaskModel_01.png

Guessing the first is something to do with teams, but what's the second?

Touchpoint Matrix is completely filled with misinformation, I don't know ... did you pull this out from the survey you did before ?

Lady Areola Fappington:  Solo PVP isn't dead!  You just need to make sure you have your booster, remote rep, cyno, and emergency Falcon alts logged in and ready before you do any solo PVPing.

one feature that i know me (and others) have been asking for in the past.

What about bulk-creating-jobs?

when i have 10 Scorch M BPC, then doing the same clicking (well i guess dragging now) etc 10 times is *extremly* annoying, so can we please have an option to clone jobs? can this dragging, clicking thing please be a template, and we can create 10 jobs without doing the same stuff over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again?

I agree with this, I don't think I saw anything like this in here. I also want something similar for capital components (where I'm often trying to build X components, using Y blueprints instead of X components on a single blueprint) - is there any of this sort of functionality or any additional stuff like that, or is this UI mostly a reskin of the old UI made to be more inviting and intuitive, but without really anything changing 'under the hood' about what you can/can't do?

When we plug in a blueprint we don't own, will we be able to manipulate the ME/TE values to see what benefit we would get from the various reserach? Same with invention, will the selection of decryptors show what the final figures will be for successful inventions?

I'm liking the look of this. Except for one major NPE point.

ME.

Now, at one time, this wasn't so bad. Sure, PE could mean the skill, or the time efficiency, but at least it wasn't the same acronym, for the same kind of thing.

Now you have ME (blueprint waste) and ME (player skill waste). Which is just insane. How about renaming the skill back to Production Efficiency, as that no longer conflicts with the commonly used acronym for Productivity level?

Woo! CSM XI!

A mighty mighty dev blog! Big smile

Could you show what each type of blueprint reasearch will actually do? E.g. Meterial research -2% matereal needed (or whatever) 8hr 4min 2sec....

Was always a bit lost on that bit lol

Due to the enormous amount of improvements and changes we are preparing, we release a series of blogs instead of one massive crazy huge blog.

More information will be published in the next blogs before Fanfest.

The idea is that the system will remember all settings for a blueprint, so if you set up 1 Scorch M BPC, all subsequent blueprints of this type will default to the last submitted job settings.

So you set up the first blueprint, then just hit submit on the subsequent BPCs because everything is set to go.

Looks like a vastly improved UI. But need to digest this. Are these changes going on Sisi before too long?

(If we wait until all the blogs are written - and that much text takes time to proof read, well done! - how much of a game play testing window will there be between sisi release and TQ implementation?)

Phew, that was a lot of text - just what I've been waiting for Big smile

I very much like the new visual appearance of the entire process. The more it moves away from the old spreadsheet look, the better. It must have taken a huge design effort to translate so much industry information down to an easy to see and operate interface. The UI team deserves a pat on the back (and a few beers) for pulling this off. Well done and I can't wait to give it a whirl Smile

Who gets the notification about completed corporate jobs?

Is it possible to disable this notification? (As an inventor, I can go through 100+ jobs a day without too much trouble. And most of those are in a POS (copy slots needed. Might as well use the others too))
