the new targeting UI looks terrible, well part of it, the circles instead of box for the top right when you lock someone? it looks bad and much more confusing now

What about fixing things, and making the UI more user and noob friendly? Like making rclick menus consistent (same rclick options in both market tabs, on characters on showinfo, context menu, whatever), making the logical (no me/pe/copy/etc options for BPCs, ever seen confused noobs?), doubleclicking on your own orders is not selling/buying but bumping, such things i call "user experience". Also, what about that new manufacturing interface we've been hearing about? And what about the mail window always shrinking the maillist to a few pixels so we _always_ have to resize it? And the chat windows blackening out when we click around the bottom of their tab? What about the things like the ragnarok BPO requires launcher parts but the ship has no launcher hardpoints? What about the *ugh* role "bitfield" system? Are any of the stuff that actually annoy us and ruining our "user experience" going to be fixed?

Looks like a post that also belongs on the little things threadBig smile
Please add some tabs so the devs will respond to all your issues.


I have written it down many times, they never respond. If it was their propose to make our everyday ingame life as hard as it can be. Sometimes they fix a little thing. Then the next tiniest patch within 2 weeks breaks the fix, and they don't even notice it. Regressions ftw.

You may have been absent for the last year or so, during which time literally hundreds of similar smaller issues have been addressed properly.

They can't fix everything at once, it has to be one step at a time, and frankly the issues they have already addressed were a lot more pressing than those you listed.

The person that suggested listing those in the appropriate thread was correct. They are starting a newer, more up to date list and your issues would actually get looked at in there... as they would actually pertain to the topic at hand.

Because circles are confusing... and 1 segmented line is more complicated than 3 seperate lines for conveying the same information?

Not really seeing it my friend.

This soup feels rather thin.

Isn't there more to this expansion?
Will we get any changes related to Dust 514 - new sovereignty or new technectium system?

While they haven't gone into a great deal of detail yet, it is my understanding that DUST will be integrated to some extent with FW sov this Winter.
I imagine the details of this will be a separate Dev Blog.

Ponies are improving the corporation recruiting interface, making it easier to search for a corporation. They're also improving the UI for corporation advertising, in addition to which they're going to give us some improvements to the whole recruitment process.


Good to hear and I'm sure we would like some more information on this stuff. The more visible corp recruitment is to players the more will end up staying with EVE.

taking a look at the rogue drone regions so you will see new and improved content there


So, they will finally be dropping modules again after the previous nerf? Anything else?

access configuration and forcefield passwords on ships to persist indefinitely over jumps and over downtimes.


Thanks for that. It's annoying having to enter the POS password every single time you come back into system or undock.

Thanks all for reading this and giving feedback. It is worth mentioning that team Klang is working on a devblog about the development that is happening on the sound front.

As the stuff posted by devs on the forums will not get propigated out in the gameing press. Yes it was a PR blog so the wider eve player base and non eveplayers will see the changes that are coming.

The duality testing period thread was not read by alot of the normal players even though those of use that do read the forums cannot get enough of itLol
