With Oceanus, the next release to be published on September 30th, we will also see the beginning of an improved notification system.

This new system, while still in the early stage, gives you a much better sense of what is going on in EVE regardless if it unpaid bills, friends getting online, insurance notification or all sort of other things. The new system is also highly configurable; for example you can precisely select those notification that you would like to as visual reminder on screen, via email or not at all.

This feature is fully Opt-In, so if you want to experience this new notification system with Oceanus, please check how to activate the experimental notification system.

Read all the details on how this new notification system works and what the future holds in CCP Rise' latest dev blog Opt-in Notification changes for Oceanus!

Yay, more to read - as soon as it's available \o/

After a quick read: Will those notifications interfere with watchlisted players logging in/out? Or will they (at a later time) be added to this/another icon to open from the lower right corner of the screen?

There is always a short delay between publication of the blog and the blog being visible for everyone all over the world. Don't despair, the blog has been published!

Noice noice noice.

Some UI cleanup is good in my book.

Does that mean that pop-up that will block the rest of the UI will soon(tm) be gone?

Interesting to see an Opt-in system, I understand that it seems necessary since not all possible notifications are included yet. But still this is kind of a new way of implementing features, and I salute the effort Big smile!

For the sake of development efficiency, I just hope that it ultimately becomes a feature for 100% of the users in some months.

Edit: Also this first paragraph on the NPE and how working on it, to make it more open-ended, can mean improving quality of life for every one... GOOD JOB! Big smile

And while I'm at it, just in case it needs to be repeated, I believe that having a good npe is THE-BEST-THING to have if you want your MMO to grow. Especially EVE. Just sayin'.

CCP Rise with the alliance tournament burn, ouch.

This looks awesome, anyway. I'm guessing it works for mail notifications too? Can't wait to get rid of a bit of corpmail spam :D

Not only is the feature awesome, the opt-in nature is a really cool way to get new features out. :D

I still have one question, will it be on Singularity before Oceanus? I know that TQ Oceanus will be the testing environment for this (kind of), but it would be cool to have it on SiSi before Oceanus :D

Hm, can't judge it yet, since I haven't seen it in action obviously, but wouldn't this be a nice thing to have on the bar on the left side, even if optionally? I'm not sure what it's called, I mean the one where the current system, route, agent missions etc. are also shown.

Is there ANY chance that you could add sound when you get a fleet invite or you miss a fleet invite?

Would be cool to be able quickly dismiss popup (or all of them) when they get in your way and you need area below them right now. For single popups right mouse button can be used, like in miranda and other IMs, for multiples - rmb on that popup widget or some hotkey.

Also IM-like status switch please, which controls if popups are shown to you or silently go to history when you're busy.

We are doing some final touches before we enable it on sisi.

You will be able to have the widget anywhere on the screen (on top of the neocom if you want to).
Which notifications popup and show up in history will be fully configurable and configurable seperatly.

When we enable it we will let you know.
