I didn't see a thread related to this test server feature so i may aswell just create a post.

I've been on the test server recently doing some pve content and just like to add that i find the new Ui icons especially for ships very difficult to distinguish the differences between different ship classes.

If i was doing pvp with this new icon set I would surely be at a great tactical disadvantage over the current icon set that has been standard to eve for as long as i have been playing. I likely would not even engage in pvp with the "new icon set due to the very subtitle differences between icons for various ship classes.

Additionally I was both in a fleet and not in a fleet and immediately could not locate a fleet member's battleship on grid because the ship's bracket icon was entirely covering the ship model from a distance.

I appreciate that you guys are trying to find active content things to fill in features for your "rapid release cycle" but if changes such as this are what you guys are planning it's not been a positive change.

The beta eve map is another prime example. It's fancy but completely absent any practical benefit over a currently available feature.

In my work as an IT systems engineer over the last 20 years one phrase has always been the golden rule to success and winning and avoiding your best laid plans going to hell in a handbasket.

"I enabled it because it looks cool."

You guys did this with the eve map and the entire eve community has already disabled it and reverted back to the map we've had for the last 7 years or more.

Please whatever you do dont add these new ship icon sets to tranquility. They are really absent a lot of needed clear definition between ship classes.

Also life lesson tip:

If your mom didn't tell you when you were a kid that wearing a bowtie was definitely not going to score you any cool points you may be the person or persons that made these new icon sets.

I'm all for things that add clarity to the game, but this clutters the hell out of making sense of grid for me.

And I still use the new map

I just don't (edit) explore a lot.
And it isn't everyone who has problems with the new map - it is the explorers.
