Show frequency crystal damage in info window

Currently, there are only two ways to show the damage state of a faction or T2 frequency crystal (energy weapon ammo). One has to either fit it, undock, ungroup weapons and mouse over to check the damage state, or create a contract and check the damage state from the contract window.

I shouldn't have to do either of these just to check how much damage my crystal ammo has taken. I propose that the damage state of crystal ammo be shown in the right click -> show info menu under attributes. I can't imagine this would be difficult to implement, and it's sorely needed.

I know bumping is frowned upon, but this is kind of getting buried...

I'll unbury this and +1 it. I've often wondered myself why I can't see damage amount in info window.

Okay, well seeing as we have unanimous approval so far (both from here and discussions in help chat), how exactly do we take this to the next step? In other words, how do we get a dev's attention (without being overly obnoxious) so that this can get put on the list for the next patch?

Agreed!

Thanks to "features", a lot of Amarr pilots end up with a load of "used" crystals that have 0 damage...but finding those crystals in amongst the damaged ones is a pain.

even though I don't use them, I can see the use of this. if they do this make sure to add it to mining crystals as well.

It would be even more nice if we could see some small pie graph or at least percentage of dmg if you hover over crystal in cargo.

I would like to add more than just one +1 that I already gave to this :-(.

CCP really please dont use Upgraded, Limited, Experimental and Prototype in item names. It sounds like the item is actually worse than basic meta 1 item. Use Calibrated, Enhanced, Optimized and Upgraded. Its really easy to understand that the item is better than meta 1 and its also in alphabetic order.

-1 for damage checking, if it breaks it breaks and you replace it.

Yeah, you don't use them, do you? Otherwise you'd get why this doesn't quite work.
Even so, this smacks of a -1 "just because". Are you against things that improve EVE's usability?

How are we suppossed to know when to get a new one, or whether or not to restocked before going into battle?

This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

How about an outline around used crystals that is shaded in red depending on the % of damage taken, similar to the way that heat damage is displayed on modules. If you have grouped guns, the outline will still be shown in the ship fitting window.
