Can we please have a filter option to turn off the circles that represent the system on beta map and also the connected lines from system to system. Great map but it needs more filter options.

Meow.

The only thing it needs done is scrapping and redo from scratch, and this time as exact copy of the old map's graphical and design interface because that map is still easier to read, easier to navigate, easier to filter data, easier to use, easier to understand.

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.

Haven't you heard of the steep learning curve?

Steep learning curve does not mean a crappy interface. In contrast, it means an interface with as much information available to digest and comprehend as possible in order to take informed decisions without having to guesstimate or count on sheer luck. And that is not what the new map allows. The controls are useless, the data display is at best ambiguous, and the display of useless information in the universe view makes the map perform worse than my PC in a 2kv2k fight. That's not the kind of hardship this famous steep learning curve is supposed to convey.

The map we have for more than a decade is bad is something nobody ever said.

Recent changes over the last 2 years make me question my life.

This.

Just replicate that map, in a floating window, maybe with an updated "jump drive plan" mode to figure out a chain of jumps and use them similarly to the gate waypoint system (with no autpilot)
