Broken sensor overlay

Does anyone else have this problem?
My sensor overlay is broken. It does not show signatures, anomalies, bookmarks or anything else that is supposed to show up.
I run two clients (two different accounts) through the new launcher.

One of the clients has the sensor overlay, the other does not. Somehow in K-space I have a sensor overlay, and in W-space it doesn't. This is really weird and totally random.


I tried:

- Clearing Cache
- Relogging
- Switching ships
- Restarting computer
- Starting up one client at a time, or in a different order

All of this does not work. It's really annoying as I need my sensor overlay. I can't hunt targets this way!
Does someone else have this problem, and if yes, how do I solve this?

Thanks in advance,

Rick

Try turning it off, then back on again.

Experiencing same wierd problem. =( And even few more.

1. Sensor overlay just stop working randomly. Sometimes after alt-tab, sometimes when i jump to another solar system. Only relogging helps.
2. Directional scan not always refresh when i change range or angle of scan. I heard that after citadels release it should not auto-refresh at all. But hay, sometimes it does! AFAIK it must either auto-refresh or not autorefresh, not doing it randomly.
3. Incompleted probe scan results (signature positions) lost if i close map, so i must repeat scan from very beginning. Nuff said.
4. Old camera completely broken randomly when i travel in new system. I can't describe it fully, but camera offsets somewhere away of the ship and changes it FOW to something just wrong (it could be 180 degrees or 270, i can't say). I prefer old camera since new one can't track on bookmarks (why, by the way? it's been a long time since it has been released, and even now it not fully works).

All of this makes my play style (exploration and WH hunting) more and more similar to HUGE and ANGRY pain in the ass.

CCPlease, it's been a while since citadels release. I really like game and course you leading it, but WTF? Not a single problem was fixed for more than two weeks.

I decided to try completely reinstalling game, but i really not hoping much if it helps. Will post results here.

Unfortunately complete reinstall (i keeped only character profiles) not fix my problems.

Could it be that i must delete character profiles and edit all the windows, probe formations, drone groups etc etc etc from the god damned scratch?

Can confirm that I'm getting this as well since latest patch. Fairly annoying. I remember the same thing happening to your own drones at one point in time, their icons just vanished randomly.

Same problem here. Sensor Overlay disappeared, personal and Corp bookmark thumbtacks disappeared from space, all gone.

2 Desktop PCs and 1 laptop. Same problem. I even installed a fresh EVE on another PC that have never had EVE on before, no joy. All accounts all characters, new or old. Even on the Test Server, same problem.

I can reproduces this problem while I am in space. Open up the planet mode and then exited. Sensor Overlay are gone. To get it back, I will have to dock and undock or jump through the gate. If I am in Kspace, in wormhole – thanks to Citadel, it’s there for me to dock and undock. Otherwise I have no way to get the sensor back while in the wormhole.

Opening up Ship Tree while in space also cause Sensor Overlay to disappear.

Ah yes, I just tested this. Bookmarks vanish when you open the map as well.

Filed a bug report.

I have the exact same problem when i open Solar system map (full screen) all the pins, bookmarks and signatures that the sensor overlay shows disappear.

Short term solution use the solar system map in windowed mode untill they fix it.

It's wormhole space. Even your overlay uses a cloak.

Mine's been doing the same thing the last few days, but it seems to always come back when I close and restart the client.

I can confirm, the sensor overlay breaks when opening a map/ship tree. Docking and undocking, jumping systems or relogging fixes the sensor overlay, but it'll break again when opening a map/ship tree.

Does it happen to people using the new scan map or are all of you on the old map like me?

For me only happens when I open view in planet mode and ship tree. I have no problem with any of the maps.

I use the old map, I don't think this happens with the new map.
