CCP has made some very nice UI improvements over the last year. One of my favorite is the tooltips that display your weapons range, DPS, and damage type as you hover your mouse over the weapon.

It would be really awesome if we had similar tooltips appear when we hover our mouse over drones (both in the drone bay and in space).

More props if the tooltip actually shows correct stats given your skills, ships, and module bonuses.

Came to hate - repost of Drone UI improvements again and all ... was surprised to see the mouse over info idea. That's new I think... so....

I support your idea, we need better UI and drone UI anyway.

PS: Fer'isam K'ahn, why do you come to troll i every single thread i read so far?

They certainly need to do something. The fact that you have to use out-of-client sources to check your drone stats reliably reflects poorly, especially given how long the drone UI overall has needed to be looked at.

+1 for a good idea. A neat route for CCP to go when (and if, at this point) they get to the drone UI.

"Trouble is, those things cost like a million and a half each."

Drones cannot be improved or changed in any way beyond stat tweaking. Why? Legacy Code.

Because the Legacy Code has too much Psssssssssssssssh, nothing will ever get fixed until CCP stop wasting money on failed sparkle MMOs and instead rewrite the entire backend of EvE from scratch.

If I can right click and show info on a drone to get some info on the drone (range, damage, etc), then I'm pretty sure we can create a tooltip that displays the most pertinent of this information. At the basic level, I'm asking that some of the information already available be implemented as a tooltip when we hover our mouse over one of our drones.
