When you open your corp as a pos manager and there is 40+ capitals in the pos, it takes ages to load. And then i have to scroll through 100 windows to get to the one i want. +1 for old system back please

2-Nice looking and impractical UI

The problem is this is best set to 'assets' when one is looking for items all over.

NOT in grab and go station inventory.
And why the frack was the right click on the ships option, ALL of them removed?

Ever try to do super cap or cap operations and suddenly be DUMB FOUNDED what the frack to do????

Even a simple Jump Freighter.... "ummm... where did my fuel go??" and once you find that... "Now what happened to my Cargo??? I just saw it... I think???"

Where it was applied is wrong.
How it was applied is criminal.
And what its doing to the game is absolutely .... treasonous.

If this level of thought was applied to Corp hangers, more options there.... maybe concentrate on that.
Not on something that was working.

Seriously, the time we saw you guys at CCP fix things was when you started to do your roams...
And suddenly saw how crappy the changes were and started rolling back or fixing them.

Even doing a video of how to do the new inventory will not help.
I eventually figured it out. And put crutches and short cuts to where it NEVER should have been applied.

It still takes forever to do what was simplicity.
MOVE this to assets, removed the changes to inventory.... Restore ALL the right click options on the ship.....

At the very least, let windows remember where they were, and make the shortcut keys work for all of them. I can press my shortcut for the cargobay, but if i press the one for hangar, it exchanges for the cargo. Shift + click... yeah what a good idea. But no... shift plus shortcut key? Nope. Only mouse can be shift clicked.

Let the loot window be seperate, and let it remember where i last placed it, same goes for ore hold, corp hangars and such. At the very least. Then I can live with it.

It is a nightmare using an orca these days. I shudder to think how the rorqual and pos users have it. I want to play, then i remember the "unified" inventory. And I play something else. Something that don't **** me over after 10 seconds of starting it.

OK so i have a few big problems with the new user interface. To sum it up I'd say it's very irritating, time wasting, user unfriendly, repetetive & a large step back from what we had before.

Here are my reasons why:

When you dock, you want your ships and items windows to be wherever you left them, not docked in the station services panel. You want the ships/items windows to be immediately visible when you dock.

With the old system:

  • Everything is right infront of you when you dock. Nothing needs done.

With the new system :

  • you have no ships/items windows apart from in the station services panel
  • you have to open your cargo
  • hit the >> icon to expand the ships/items heierarchy list
  • expand the window so you can actually see what you want to click on
  • shift+click on ships & items to open these windows
  • hit the << button to remove the ships/items hierarchy list
  • resize your cargo window to it's normal useful state.

Prior to the changes to the UI all of these steps were done for you, because you'd done it once before, so when you docked everything was right there to use. bang, simple, done. This new interface resets iteself every time you undock, leaving you repeating the whole process.

The UI changes need to be rolled back since it's simply irritating the user rather than becoming an interface to the user.

Please +1 this & maybe we can have some functionality back.

Thank you.


CCP please don't fix what isn't broke.

CCP you seriously messed up... again. FIx the damn windows so they stay where I damn put them. I don't want my container windows on top of my cargo... I want them separate. Why is this so hard to grasp? Do you even play your own game?

I usually never post complaints, but this particular change warrants it. This new system is very time consuming, and can be very frusterating just to do the simplest of tasks. When I dock up I have gotten used to and very much liked how my station inventory and ship inventory boxes were the size and place I had put them before. Every time I install EVE I have always put these inventory boxes in the same place and it has always worked for me and been easy. I appreciate the dedication of the DEVs always trying to find ways to improve the game, but not all improvements are good ones. That being said, I think it is important to heed the wishes of the majority and a roll back is called for in this situation. At the very least, a option box in the settings to use the old system or the new one, as many have said here already.

I am Tom Zarik, and today is the first day of the new era.

I would also like to add, windows that we can undock (via shift-click?) would not be a full and complete solution to the problem.

We really do need the old UI as an option. Not just a band-aid.

I apologise for the americanism, but the phrase sums things up well.

Again, thanks for the hard work CCP.

If you want to keep the new inventory, fine. BUT give all of us other the ability to change it back to the old, actual usefull inventory. The new One is terribad!

Also, screw all those hipsters crying "adapt to it you old grumpy ppl", we've tried it and disliked it okay? Deal with it, you will Not make us change our minds to adapt to some new crappy thing as the old One was absolutely fine for everydays Business.
