That's definitely something, which would make a lot of things less complicated, easier to access in case of often used options and would allow a quicker adaption to changing situations. I like it a lot. Shocked

My ridicule, heavy criticism and general pale outlook about your or CCP's ideas is nothing but an encouragement to prove me wrong. Give it a try.

Thank you Rivr Luzade.

But it seems this feature doesn't interest developpers after all.
It's sad because I think my ideas about new filters for the Overview window were nice.

I wonder if asset search dev blog 's search syntax, or something like it, would have any place in the quick search, or in the way filters are defined. Hm.... :)

Stealth deletes are bad.

I heard that EVE online will have more frequent updates. I hope one of them will feature my ideas, explained in my first post.

Shame I cannot like it twice and apparently I liked it at some point already.

That OP is full of ossumsouce, we have to keep it on 1st page of F&I

An 11-year old game should be continuously improved (U.I.) not just tweaking the data tables...

I generally like your ideas. However the horizontal scrollbar isn't going to work without at least some other changes:

You will need to anchor the identification columns, otherwise if you scroll across while things change position vertically it will get very confusing. Example, you scroll across to see the traversal speed, see a nice target with zero traversal and find yourself shooting at a gate. Trouble is you could have sorted by range, shiptype, player name etc., and all of them could be important. For example you might want to follow primaries (called by name) but only if they are cruisers or bigger within 10Kms.

So each column will need to be given an anchor flag. Which if set will prevent them scrolling off the left edge and will force them to be to the left of any unanchored column. ie the horizontal scrolling only occurs on the unanchored columns.

Looks good. Thank you for the effort in preparing this recommendation.

Brilliant idea
Brilliant idea
the rest of them I'm apathetic about but not opposed to, excluding the tooltips - until we can turn them off, or assigne them to extra mouse button 99

For posting an idea into F&I: come up with idea, try and think how people could abuse this, try to fix your idea - loop the process until you can't see how it could be abused, then post to the forums to let us figure out how to abuse it..... If your idea can be abused, it [u]WILL[/u] be.

Thank you for your support, guys.

Now, let's hope some developers will notice this thread. It seems almost none of them are aware of it.
How long do you think it takes for an idea to be considered?

Very nice, though I would like to add that it would be awesome to have checkboxes for things to hide when they belong to:

- Alliance
- Corp
- Fleet
- Awesome standing (or whatever it's called)
- Good ""
- Neutral ""
- Bad ""
- Terrible ""

And I would really like to see this kind of filter system for brackets too, also with these same hiding checkboxes, but it would possibly be better to keep that in an options menu.

Honestly I think at least on of the devs has seen it. However, they would probably be careful with their replies. As they already have such a system for their inventory, I'd think they would be already working on this. However, if we you want to be sure, this needs get a lot more popular.

This looks like it would be a natural component of the overview. Glad you included mockups to illustrate your idea.


#140 - 2014-06-07 01:01:28 UTC
i think this gives unnecessary clutter to an all ready over packed ui. isnt this what tabs and saved over views are for ?
