Have to agree with the majority. The overview graphics are horrible.

The structures are ok, but the ship Icons and the Rat icons are too hard to differentiate...........

Useability trumps graphics.

Is there a way to fix the launcher not and game not responding issue? Seems to have utterly failed to launch the game since the new release!

I also hate new icons, very confusing and misleading.
Old icons were simple and easy, now we get 10000 variations of something that doesn't even look right.

I want an option back, so player can choose:
1. Use Simple icons
2. Use 100000 variations icons

Example:
Agent in space looks like a bright star.

Yes I have tried. Just nothing seems to work. The game starts and just goes to Not Responding Mode. Then the launcher follows. Everything was fine until Carnyx!!

I'm also having trouble with the new icons, at least for player ships i'm finding it much harder to work out what things are. While im guessing some people will like the new ones, can we not have an option to use the old ones?

I'm trying real hard not to be flippant or bitter here but why are you asking these question AFTER you roll out new icons?

I use 90% UI scaling because this game might as well be called "Eve Online; We hope you like windows" -- screen real estate is a huge issue.

Why? Why? CCP should I have to learn the new icons? To please you???

These new ones are terrible, you've even crossed the meaning of simler old and new icons... Madness, Its like swapping the positions of the clutch and brake pedal... Absolute madness and pointless, and brings nothing to the game other than confusion...

Go back to the old icons and stop this change for changes sake thinking...

My reason is mostly that i need much space for all my windows i always need in ship. Some are stacked but this is not always possible/a good idea.

Is it maybe a possible fix to write a "little" workaround that takes action when UI scaling is on 90% that the overview icons not just get downscaled but instead replaced with 90% smaller icons. You can just shrink the actual ones about 90% and take look if they still look good ingame.

Hope CCP can sift the number of real humans on this thread...

I suspect a lot of those new icons tears are coming from different alts of the same people Twisted

I am using 90% scaled because i see more objects / ships / npc's in overview, The more you see the better you defend / kill npc's..

Run the launcher and try clearing the cache. Under Advanced tab use 'Clear all cached data'.
If that doesn't work run the 'EVE Repair Tool' on the same tab.

Is the New system in W-Space or K-Space??

OK, so after an actual elite PVP fleet I have some more feedback regarding the new overview icons / brackets. Apart from the fact that the drones Xes need to come back, because the new icons look just silly and clutter the view anyway, there is one major issue with the new icons - they are unreadable when no standings / background colours are set towards a neutral player you are fighting. Stuff just looks too much the same. And the more things you have on your OV the more you are screwed. The new icons are OK-ish in a way. You could get used to them. We just need a more "at a glance" way to tell the player controlled ships in space. Like a colour maybe. Making the player ships green for instance would help me a lot. And I bet a lot of colour blind people would also welcome the option to change player ships colour. Right now, everything on the OV that is not a waypoint object (stargate, station) has the same colour. The other way would be reverting the old brackets for player ships.

TL;DR: Let me change the player controlled ships icons colour and it will be much better.
