To go along with this awesome new dscan, any chance of a windowed version of the map screen (for instance, to place on its own monitor so that it is accessible without starting up a loading bar) or an expanded F11 minimap where you can consistently click on the right cluster without having to be pixel-precise?

Imagine the dscanly goodness.

Imagine effectively navigating a system through a minimap instead of an overview...

Also, post title, I see what you did there.

Now where's my electric sheep?

It's hard to decide which I like better, the stuff or the things! It's just all so good!

All nice changes and bla...

Unfortunately the check box for activating the tracking camera is still gone in the scanner window. The place where it really belongs to instead of a radial sub-menu next to the control interface for the ship... oh pain...

I have removed the shortcut for the tracking camera about a day after it was introduced cause i kept activating it accidentally when i wanted to type something in a chat window. I think i will have to find another shortcut that i don't accidentally hit. Not that there are about 20 already... but you don't seem to realize that "tracking camera" and "directional scanner" should really share one interface/window.

That's the little things you make worse...

I want to thank you all for making the game easier to play. Both the updates to D-Scan and the ship information tabs are wonderful. This really will make Eve's learning curve a bit easier for newbies and more fun for the rest of us.

Thank you again

see, now I broke DScanOops

Something else is broken too: CPU, Grid and Calibration bars show behind-the-scene labels when using the German client language setting.

These are awesome! It would be nice to replace words with other words instead of *** - though I might end up having a bit too much fun with that.

Great changes! Seriously these 'little changes' almost always become my favorite part of these releases. Lol

I note the chat filters are not case-sensitive (perfect!) but want to be sure I understand how to code them. Based on the picture it looks like you list words together with a period in between them? So if I wanted to filter the words alpha beta and gamma it would be coded like the below?

alpha.beta.gamma

Wow usually when I see changes announced at the last minute I shudder - but these look so awesome! Cool

Hey Great CCP team...

Could you add some kind of column text box in the Science & Industry Planets tab that allow us to write a note of what kind of commodities we are working on.

I can't never remember which planet PI does what at the end of the day...

Thx, Defier. Love EVE Online!

We have heard your pleas (and done some begging and crying ourselves), but we have much more ambitious ideas for the scanner. So we have, to be honest, been a bit reluctant to just put a tiny patch on it.

That is something I've wanted to hear for a very long time. The rest of the changes to the UI are nice, but I can't wait until we see a Scanner overhaul.

Immensely pleased to see the D-scan get some love, and eager to hear more about your future plans for it!

Any chance we can have, on the unused part of the HUD in the bottom half of the circle where the overheat indicators are (between capacitor and hull readout), a display that can be used as a cargohold readout for a bay of the players choice? So a miner/hauler would use it for orebay, a capital for feulbay, a friehgter for cargohold ect?
