Suggestion: Make it so I don't have to relog between assuming control of POS guns in system X and assuming control in system Y.
Keywords: POS, bug, session change
Note: I filed a bug report on this about a month ago, and it appears to have disappeared into the aether.

Fixed in the latest patch. :toot:

Lovely how this thread full of ideas and suggestions stays here under General Discussion instead of being locked and moved.

Let's see...a little thing...

How about coloured lights on ships like UFOs are alleged to have?

Keywords: Pretty, lights, ships.

It would be pretty.

Suggestion: Favorites List for Selecting S&I Installations

Keywords: Science and Industry

Note: When selecting a station/POS array to run an S&I job, we have the option to look within the station, system, current BP location, Constellation, and/or Region. In systems with many stations & POS arrays, selecting System, Constellation, or Region offers a very long list of facilities to run your S&I Job, and finding the right facility increases the tedium when installing jobs. Please allow us to add facilities to a "Favorites List", and then let pick from the Favorites List as another option instead of listing all facilities in the station, system, constellation, etc.

Suggestion: Post the date and time a character last logged in below the "Likes received" line.

Keywords: Forum

Note: This will identify forum alts pretty clearly, it will also give you an approximation of when to find that character online in case you want to contact them.

Suggestion: Show info on a gate shows info for the system in links to rather than the useless gate info

Keywords: Stargate, info, links

Suggestion: Show drone health when they're in the drone bay instead of just in space, the game obviously keeps track of it since relaunching them does so at the original health. This small UI tweak would make things much much easier!

Keywords: Drones, health,

I was going to lock this thread for being redundant, but since CCP karkur has apparently given it her blessing, I am instead just moving it to Features & Ideas Discussion.

I will also try to poke someone to apply some sticky glue to it.

Suggestion: Show crystal damage in cargo hold and hangars.
Keywords: ammo, ui, crystals
Note: Having to load individual crystals to check the damage one by one is really, really, really, tedious, a waste of time and it's been requested for a loooooooong time to actually have it displayed on the ammo itself (once loaded they don't stack anymore anyway).

Suggestion: Enable autostacking as an option in ship cargo holds and all other storage.
Keywords: Inventory, Stacking
Note: As an option this would be enabled and autostack every time an item is added to the cargo hold.

Suggestion: Allow you to highlight in the color of your choosing any specific market order with a right click
Keywords: Market, Order, Highlight
Note: Sometimes you just want to keep an eye on a specific order, even if it is not yours.

Suggestion: When the fitting window and market window are both open, have it so that hovering over a market order for a module with have the same effect as hovering over the module when it is in your inventory.
Keywords: Fitting, Market, CPU, Powergrid
Note: This would allow you to quickly assess if the module will fit on your ship. The functionality while the module is in your inventory is great, just want to extend it to other areas.

Suggestion: When the fitting window and item description window are open, have it so that hovering over a module in the "variations" tab will have the same effect as hovering over the module when it is in your inventory.

Something as simple as keeping "Show Compact Member List" or "text only" persistent even when opening new windows, fleets, etc.

Suggestion: Our own orders can be highlighted in blue in the market window, we can modify and now cancel from the contextual menu. Next step: change the default double-click action to "modify" on our own orders in the market window.
Keywords: UI, market
Note: I hate right clicking

Wishing CCP Soundwave all the best but hope lives on.

How about a new Little Things thread to reflect that?

1. Some sort of indicator in the character sheet (or Journal) for NPC corps you have standing with, showing progress to the next storyline mission. Like a 16 part pie that fills in or something with each mission and resets every 16 missions.

2. When I am docked in the hangar or CQ I want a radial menu for my active ship for the common actions like:

- Leave ship
- Open Cargo
- Open Fittings
- Open Drone Bay
- Open specialised hold

(the right click menu is unwieldy and also suffers featuritis)

3. Also a palette floating at the top of the Neocom for the active docked ship in hangar view with buttons for these functions would be very nice. Something like this in terms of function already exists in space in the form of the Selected Item palette. These common actions really should have 1 click access in the hangar.

Those are three things off the top of my head.

Edit: fixed title :-)

i like those ideas and maybe a cooldown timer/notification for when we can repeat data center's and/or Cosmos missions

edit. also stop incursion constellation chat from auto-stickying to a group of chats.

Suggestion: Survey Scanner Results Window interacting with the X key (default broadcast target shortcut)
Keywords: survey scanner, shortcuts, keybind, fleet broadcast
Note: Right now holding on the X key while clicking on the asteroid in space or in the overview will list the asteroid in the Fleet Window Broadcast history. This kind of functionality does not work with directly clicking on items listed in the Survey Scanner Results Window.

Suggestion: IGB JavaScript improvement
Keywords: IGB, usability
Note: CCPEVE.addContact takes a character ID to add. Could be extended simply to take 2 other parameters, integer 1-5 for standing, and integer 0/1 for Add to Watchlist or not.

Thus: CCPEVE.addContact(10201030,3,1) would add the contact as neutral (grey) and set watchlist to added.

Suggestion: Have an option to set a timer for bookmarks so that the bookmark deletes itself after the set period of time.
Keywords: Bookmarks
Note: With wormholes and other time dependent bookmarks it would be very convenient to be able to set your bookmarks to auto expire after 24-48hr or so.

I would really like a way to view the other pair's militia progress, without having to relog a different character. i.e. as a Caldari I can only see caldari/gallente progress. I want to be able to see minmatar/amarr without having to ask someone else or relog.

  • Suggestion: Highlight target and weapon on touch in survey scanner result window
  • Keywords: ui, mining, survey scanner result browser
  • Note: not possible to see which weapon is on which asteroid.

When I'm out mining, I use my Survey Scanner to smart-cycle my strip miners, so I interrupt the strip miner when I know there is no more ore in a rock, so I don't have to wait the full 3 mins. When I touch the strip miner icons (F1, F2 etc) I can see a highlight on which of my targets they are currently locked to. Vice versa when I touch one of the targets. It would be very helpful to extend this UI change to the survey scanner result window, so when I see that an asteroid is almost empty, I could touch it there and see which strip miner I actually have to stop.
Currently the only way to do this, is to click the asteroid in the result window so that the highlighted target changes, then touch the target to see which strip miner this corresponds to.

  • Suggestion: Visual warning when using the wrong mining crystal
  • Keywords: ui, mining, mining crystals
  • Note: no visual queue that I'm stupid

More often then I'm willing to admit, when I mine for e.g. Plagioclase I'm like ohh Massive Scordite and switch my strip miners to that and forget to switch my crystals. It would be really helpful if the strip miners Icon would turn red if using the wrong crystal, but even worse, currently when you touch the strip miner it shows you your max. possible yield although the true value (when using the wrong crystal) is much lower. Any help with that, turning something red, or even text on the screen would help a lot before I mine again for an hour and only THEN wonder why my cargo is filling up so slowly.
