Who the hell created these new overview icons? A kid? What a *** joke!
Those are the worst icons i have ever seen in EVE in 13 years. You cant tell the difference between modules, ships or so, it all looks the same stupid way.

A bad move of you CCP, sorry to tell you this. StraightEvil

I like the new icons, the stargate icon not being circular helps me to pick out a gate from other celestials. Radiate rays on the sun icon is also good. I particularly liked the CONCORD screen icon being a stylised TV!

I had no trouble with the update; my OS is Windows 7, might there be a connection?

I do a fair ammount of scanning and the only trouble I've had with it, so far, is that the target icons sometimes get hidden behind the icons of celestials.

I realized I had a bit of disatisfaction with the Carnyx release. CCP, where are our free party favors for just logging in to a new update? No Genolution head stuff, or one time only vanity ships?

Nah, the new icons were created by a CCP DEV who does not play this game.

Icons are just new - take some time to get used to them. There's no way you will adapt in a few hours.

If they are terrible after 25 hours gametime, then post

After 12 long years of playing this game finally some nice distinctive icons. Thanks CCP.

*Although I do have to say the concept icons looked well better than these ones*

The overview is a nightmare when trying to sort out ship types. Why oh Why did you change a system which worked so well. The other icons work well i.e gates wormholes etc. But for the love of ALL plz change ships back to the old way.

The new icons on overview and in space are mostly ok but please change the dron icons. A drone must be significant different from a ship.

Yeah I actually love them.

Just tried a mission and it was SOOO refreshing being able to tell a frigate from a destroyer. The single line underneath seems a little too minimal tho when it comes to cruiser vs BC, maybe make those thicker?

Wrecks seem a little busy. Perhaps have the "loot" icon fused into the icon to reduce the number of "internal" lines to deal with. And on that same front jet cans feel busy with a line in the middle. Their original diamond shape would have worked better here. I still need to see how they look different from cans like GSCs, but to separate them you could add chevrons on the outsides of the diamond, maybe make the line thicker or have a double layered outline.

It's not just that the icons are small or whatever, but they are mono, making them harder to see quickly if you don't have the greatest vision. That... color index is removed, which works well within the whole of visual recognition. I'm wondering if this idea came from a non-artist... looks something a programmer would thunk up Roll
Oh wait, resources downloading... had to exit and turn off that live download junk on this system... afraid of what I'll see if worse than the icons that were there a few days ago which were hard enough to deal with. hmmm...
Anyway I'm speaking of the icons in the toolbar, it's all driving me to get an updated vision check Sad

CCP, once again you have wasted your time on things no one needs, no one asked for, and no one wants.
I was already upset with the new interface, totally useless and clumsy. It was typical from you that you continue in this direction instead of adding interesting content to the game.
We don't need fluff, especially when it's so messy.

I'm not a fan of the new drone bracket icons in space. It is now much harder to tell drones from ships than it was before. Please consider reverting the drone icon to what it was before or some other change to make it easier to distinguish in space.

Thank you

Didn't we warn you befoere the release that the new icons are terrible? they clutter the overview and make it worse to actualy identify something...

every F-ing time, why do you even ask SISI feedback when you just ignore it ( hell, who actualy thinks the new icons are good at the ccp office???)

New icons are fantastic, thank you so much for constantly improving the eve experience.

My only issue is that the drones are too visually similar to ships. Perhaps if they had smaller, solid bodies with the existing wings?

This raises a request i've had for a while, which is the ability to Hide Friendly Drones from brackets & overview. I want to keep friendly ships, just hide friendly drones.

BUG: The camera centering issue with the Blackbird was now extended to the Gallente Shuttle and InterBus Shuttle too, and much more agressively.


Also, all icons are so bright its like the ships are made of crystal, some Caldari ships like the Drake almost can't be distinguished from the grey background, all this brightness is far from representing how the ships actually look.

The Hawk for instance is brownish, but the icon displays it almost white.

For the sake of all that is good could you please have the new icons an option to switch back to the old much better icons.? I have played around on sisi with the new icons so knew they were coming to TQ but I hate them even more now.
