Good question. But isnt it CCP's job to fix stuff that isn't broken ?

4k on the horizon, this is why they look garbled on 90% scaling on standard rez monitors


Help me here (i'm not very techy) ... does this mean I'll need to buy new monitors to play the game ?


Nah, just think about going back to 100% scaling and adjusting your you layout accordingly, or deal with slightly less definition on the icons.

Don't know what I'll be doing yet ,I'll decide once I'm all patched up,

Till then onwards with the patch day shiptoastin o/ weeeeeeeeeee!

Yea sure, and now i'll go buy 4k 30fps only monitor only because of EVE ?
No way.


There are 60 hz 4k screens. They are great for multiboxing eve too if you don't mind smallish text.

Yea but i also do some photography stuff and photoshop on my screen, so those 60Hz monitors aren't very color accurate..

Thats not a problem anymore either.

Look at these, they are tuned to within 99% sRGB.

Way cheaper on amazon btw.

sRGB is stupid standard that has less than 24bits, and this monitor can't even display 100% sRGB.
Roll

i am using Adobe RGB or even more colors that are in super wide gammut for photography.
So 4k monitors are bad at the moment, i hope they get better.

What is it about change and people hating it? I don't think CCP has ever changed anything in EvE without loads of people immediately moaning about how much they hate it. Then In time they slowly start to see the benefit and stop complaining.

Personally, I love the change. Sure, it's going to take me a while (read: like a DAY!) to get used to their meanings, but I can already see how much better it's going to be in seeing which ship classes are in my overview.

Seriously people, HTFU!

One thing is for sure tho, the original symbols that were floated here were LOADS better imo. Lets hope they switch back to that!

Keep up the good work, CCP!

Post with your main, like a BOSS!

And no, i don't live in highsec.  As if that would make your opinion any less wrong.

I remember the last test. All that one was was a simple move of the undock button.

So many failed that one miserably. Weeks of forum rage. I fear this one may actually go for months. Some people are just that stupid.

As for me, meh, a couple of days and it'll be like it was always this way.

so far the only defenders of these icons i have seen don't pvp, anyone who pvp's i've come across hates these new icons with a passion, because the old brackets = simple and easy to distinguish, new icons = convoluted mess


Absolutely. New Icons are a damned tragedy.

Give us the option to turn them off.

Damn you, CCP. I've played and paid too many years for you to pull amateur hour crap like this. Ten years and you do this now?

New overview icons .... hang on studying up on my Egyption hieroglyphics.

New ship, drone, BPC icons - too washed out and not enough contrast
Are they the next thing you have to buy new "skins" / icons for in the AUR market?

Not even once

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

I honestly dont see where the PVPers are coming from. I couldnt tell any of the old brackets apart cause they were all the same broken-line-square. I used the "type" column more than anything for PVP if I wanted to know ship class.

For some reason some of you keep making the mistake of thinking that it's simple resistance to change that people display when they don't like something. The believe that, you'd have to believe that every change is good without considering the merits of each individual change.

I don't personally care for this change, I can read the icons fine and have 'gotten used' to them. That doesn't stop them from being god awful ugly 'wing forms'. It doesn't stop the old icons from being useful enough for our needs (and they were, while being simple).

It's not a monument shooting situation, but it is an example of the fact that businesses can literally shovel any old crap to consumers and a portion of those consumers will accept said crap without even the slightest wink of an eye.

You haven't seen them yet???

As I said in another thread, I get tired of that "you must be overreacting to change" bit. People can dislike a change on it's merits you know.
