Drones in overview

Hey everyone,

I had a little fight with 2 drone ships today. I came to the conclusion my overview is far from optimal for dealing with drones. The drones clutter the overview and I lose track of the information about where the ships are. The ideal option would be to seperate the drones and ships in different tabs and display them next to eachother. I know I can make a tab for drones, but the problem will be that I only see one at the time. As far as I am aware I can't display 2 tabs at once.

Another option would be to give the drones another color in my overview somehow. But I don't know if it's possible to do this.

Any other tips in regard to optimising the overview to deal with drones are welcome.

Thx in advance for your reply ;)

Activate auto targeting. Your ship will then target the drones that are shooting you.

If your overview shows ships and drones only, it should be easy to identify the ship itself. Everything else is drone.
Excepting Sentries, I think the drones will be closer to you, you could set your overview by range.

Dump things from your PvP overview like; stars, beacons, stations, etc.
Gates and targets is fairly easy to comprehend in almost any fight.
