# Allow me to see how close to a storyline mission I am when missioning. Something like a progression bar towards the 16 missions required for a storyline.

# Allow me to Ctrl + A, Ctrl + C when I look at the "view contents" in the personal assets window from afar. Or give me a way to link fittings without being it the system or have it saved in the fitting window.

# Increase the number of words I can use when creating the corporation advert, and allow me to post links in it without having to type the entire url.

# Make the fleet advert stay active even if the fleet goes down to one member.

Suggestion: Add container types to the output of the cargo scanner, and make sure the cargo scanner has at least one thing to identify in every location in a data/relic site.
keywords: exploration, container
Notes: I hope this is the right place to post. I've written a longer blog post about this, but here's a summary.

During exploration when I'm using a cargo scanner on a tower in a data or relic site, I think the game should tell me what type of container each item could be in. Don't make players have to use google to find a cheat sheet and don't make them miss the treasure just because they didn't guess the right type of container, after all the work they did to probe and hack the tower.

Also *every* tower, even in high-sec, should contain something that shows up on a cargo scanner. Even if it's near-worthless T1 salvage, have *something* appear so that the user learns that the cargo scanner is a valuable tool (as a newb I didn't even know there *were* cargo scanners!) and that the cargo scanner will tell you what kind of container to try and pick up. This will train them in the right technique and they'll soon learn to head into low/null sec to get richer loot.

As things currently stand, it's not obvious, at least to me, what the difference is between Parts, Material and Equipment and thus I don't know what containers are likely to yield valuable loot. As a new player, perhaps without a cargo scanner (or even with one!) which container type should I assume a decryptor will live in? I probably won't notice the tiny, tiny icon that flashes up in the HUD when I open a container and I'm not going to have the patience to experiment.

Knowing that I simply *guessed* wrong and that cost me millions, was very very frustrating and off-putting from this game. I felt like I'd jumped through all the hoops I was asked to (probing, hacking = slow/tricky for a noob), and then the game teased me with Good Loot, then snatched it away by withholding information.

Ability to "unlearn skill" without sp compensation
the ability to "opt out" or "turn off" Margin Trading .
the ability to deposit the "full amount to cover" into escrow.


I accidentally trained Margin training on one character and bought another with Margin Trading quite high.

No matter what I do, I can't put a full amount into escrow With billions in buy-orders.. often focused on a few expensive items... I want to be able to buy all the items that I have buy orders on.

What I don't want, is to have billions in my wallet.. where we know that a slip of a digit could lose it all. When I have only 300milion or 400 million in my wallet, and I make a mistake. the most I can lose is what is in my wallet.

More often that not, the huge mistakes come while making what you think is an inconsequential purchase .. but have too many zeros or mix up price and quantity etc..

When you move cash in from an alt or a corp wallet to place multi billion isk orders.. you can be sure to pay really close attention until those billions are safely placed in escrow

Suggestion: Add estimated worth totals to the refine window
Keywords: UI Upgrades

Notes: just like for inventory would be nice to get estimated worth of the refine/reproc job you are about to commit to to see if it was worth it compared to just selling items on the market...

Hell, make "fleet advert stays up if boss hands over" a tickable setting-- that way, when fleet boss passes to an afk person, someone's standing fleet isn't fuxed. -- my blog

Suggestion: Allow evemail to lists you aren't subscribed to/allow post only access to a list
Keywords: UI, Evemail

It can be annoying having to be subscribed to a mailing list designed to gather information to post as you end up getting a load of mails. Either solution would solve the problem however while probably technically harder I think the later option would be better as it means security for a list can still be maintained.

Oh shoot, I forgot this was still here. Reposting from Features and Ideas Discussion.

1. Add purple circles around fleet members taking damage. Play with the scaling such that you can see who got bombed and who's actually primary. Or maybe straight up don't show damage from aoe attacks. I know that the watchlist exists, but I'd like something less spreadsheet-y and more visual. Among other things, it'd help people watching eve videos get a better idea of what's going on.

2. Add an option to only show MY drone brackets and nobody else's. If this exists I haven't been able to find it.

3. Add the option to copy an entire bookmarks folder to the inventory, then trade it. If you try to import a folder with the same name, ask to merge, replace, or cancel.

4. Add the option to display our velocity vector with an arrow. It'd be helpful to keep track of where your ship is going while zoomed out.

5. Add the option to display bookmarks in space in a manner similar to anomalies. Can be used with #4 to maximize getaway speed.

Really little thing:

I have no interest in knowing when my corp makes a transaction, but my wallet blinks anyway even though I have no access to corp wallet.

I do however want my wallet to blink for my own transactions.
I'd like these to be separate options.

Make the Prorator look different than the Sigil. When we had the last big reskin, Prorator lost it's individual look. Just give it blue lights or something, it doesn't have to get its Khanid skin, but something to make it not look exactly like a sigil.

The ability to select multiple orders and cancel them at once. Having hundreds of orders to cancel is a chore.

The ability to modify the QUANTITY of an order, not just the price. Not the minimum quantity. Especially refreshing a mostly bought out order. Refresh a 12/10000 order back to 10000/10000. Normal fees would apply.

The ability to add new items to an existing sell order. Normal fees would apply. So If I have Helium Isotopes for sale, and I get more Helium Isotopes in station. I could just add them to my existing sell order, instead of having to cancel my old order, or add a second sell order.

My choice of pronouns is based on your avatar. Even if I know what is behind the avatar.

Suggestion: Make the "item type" window on "Wallet - Transactions" wider so i can actually see what I am typing.
Keywords: ui, wallet

I'm looking for an item that i have traded lately...but if the name is a bit longer, I cant actually see what I am typing...and the dropdown list that will pop up doesnt help if it lists entries that all start with the same letters.


Yes this is a tiny thing, but it's annoying me.

Also, it would be nice if you could just type part of the item description and it will bring up all hits that include the the "assets" window i dont have to type "gist a-type EM ward thingie" each time but can just go for "-type" instead and get all deadspace item transactions.

Suggestion: When the Capacitor Battery modules got their overhaul to make them less useless, the equivalent Semiconductor Memory Cell rigs were left out
Keywords: rig, pvp
Note: Does anyone actually use Semiconductor Memory Cell rigs for anything? With the same anti-neut/vamp boni the battery modules got there'd actually be a serious choice between them and the capacitor control rigs.
