Not something that could go in for the upcoming release, but...

Firstly,
While you are in a fleet, it would be nice to be able to have broadcasts filtered and auto added to a special watch list, if you will

Use Case: I am in a logi ship, and have specific people I have been assigned to always watch. In this particular instance, I am in an Armor logi, and only care about people that broadcast for armor in addition to the ones I always watch.

What I would like, is to be able to filter only those broadcasts (in this case armor), and only show those. In addition, it would be nice if when they broadcast, you could see the shields/armor/hull of the broadcastee, so that you could make a decision on who to rep.


Secondly,
It would be nice to filter channels by standings, so you could, for instance, filter out Good and Excellent standings from Local, etc.

One small change that would help logistics would be to allow target selection from the watch list.
IE you double click some one on the watch list and if they are locked by you the target is switched to them, simple but would really help logi bros out.

Very nice indeed. Love all the changes.

There was another one with Notepad. And yes I use it all the time. I take lots of notes.

I can't quite remember though but it had to do with links in the notepad. Like Links to a station or links to a character ir a corp. Right now you can drag a station to the notepad and the link stays there no problem. However, if you copy the text which also has the link in it and paste into another note, the link is gone your left with just plain text. Same if your coping something email that might have links in it and you paste it into a note the link disappears.

Maybe something you could look at please.

However I am quite satisfied and pleased with all these UI changes

Probably first thread about announced changes wihout wailing and gnashing of teeth in it... A clear sign of job well done.

All of the UI improvements are useful and necessary, keep it up.

Now if you could just take some care of drone UI somwhere in future, maybe add a little indictator when they take damage, that would probably turn out awesome and made your team beloved by all drone nannys out in New eden.

OK... CCP Spitfire, go get EVERYONE at CCP and have them stand over your shoulder and read this:

I will wait......



CCP THIS IS HOW YOU UPDATE EVE WITHOUT PISSING PEOPLE OFF. PAY ATTENTION, TAKE NOTE, AND REPEAT THIS PROCESS FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.


Thank you CCP Spitfire for giving us useful, requested, updates that really are unlikely to annoy or irritate anyone, do not dumb down eve, or take backward steps in the evolution of EvE.

If you have a few spare cycles, please go find CCP Fozie and CCP SoniClover and beat them about the head and shoulders until they fall in line with how you do things.

All of this is awesome.

In regards to the fleet menu clean up...FINALLY

Btw in 1.1 can you guys do a tree hierarchy or similar for the Orbital Bodies in system info? Searching for stations and planet types is a ***** when you have 100 moons to scroll through. If those moons could be collapsed under their parent planets that would be awesome.

Or better yet, let us filter out the info such that we can hide any one of the three: stations, moons, or planets.

You can drag and drop links from note to chat and then back to a note, just open a chat window with a random name or use local. Ofcourse CRTR C / V would make things easyer.

On topic;

Great blog!

Great we get PAGE UP / DOWN everywhere!!!

And hopefully the Courier Contract wizzard was included in the Drag / Drop update of station names :D

now when the bookmark window pops up, the location name text is preselected for you, and if you want to change it you will just have to start typing to replace it.

Well, finally, after years of asking for this.

Thank you CCP karkur!

Love all the changes :)

However, if I am understanding correctly, the page up/down feature is usable only with the Page Up/Down keys? I'd really like to be able to remap that functionality to some other keys.

Wow, these are really good changes, the sort of changes that make playing EVE a lot smoother. The one thing I hope continues to see improvement in the UI is cutting down on wasted space. Honestly, 20 pixels does make a difference, and I think there are a loooot of "20 pixels" here and there that could be cut away from parts of the UI (e.g., the scanning windows still have a lot of wasted space even with the polishing).
