You forgot to mention in the 1.0.1 patch notes that you fixed minimizing the station services window doesn't minimize it twice anymore. (icon with a 2 and clicking it gave you the option to maximize either of the two but maximized both)

What happened to the right click in the hanger on your ship to open you various areas on your Orca? This is a huge pain in the ass if this is intentional.

Apologies in advance, I know this has probably been addressed somewhere already, but I could not find it.

I know that the Destroyer/Battlecruiser SP backfill took place (thanks for that). What about the Mining Frigate skill for characters who never trained that but are in Hulks and Macks? For now I see my characters are still allowed to fly ships with red X's in their pre-req lists...will that change? Or will they be given up to the level needed to meet the reqs?

Nothing is going to change and you will not need to train the prerequisites, if you don't wish. They only exist to allow the actual ship skill to be injected. But if you trained the ship skill under the old system, you can and always will be able to fly it.

If you could fly it before, you'll be able to fly it after. This will not change.

Two small requests.

Put the undock button back where it was (hell, keep both, nothing wrong with 2 undock buttons)

And fer the love of Sam please let me ignore anomalies in the scanner window. I usually ignore the anomalies I'm not going to screw with so I don't have to keep scrolling up and down when I need to warp.

So that more miners die more quickly, less ore is mined, prices go up and people are more likely to purchase plex? Just thinking out loud (via typing).

But how does the move from scannable sites to anomalies fit into the "make mining a more active profession" mantra? I thought of "active" in terms of "work for your rocks" and not "get doomed in seconds just like sitting untanked in crowded systems abc belt".

Indeed. Quite the conundrum. Makes a person wonder...

So, you're a bounty hunter. No, that ain't it at all. Then what are you? I'm a bounty hunter.

When I select something in the overview window on the left, it automatically changes my view and the screen starts focusing on the object. This is extremely annoying. Anyway to turn this off ?

Can you show me that menu in a screenshot because it is apparently not avaiable in my version of eve...

Don't have it handy, but its the three little lines that you can click on the top left of many windows. After you target something, look for it there or on one of your other target selection windows. Once you click it you have two options, one of the options is to disable camera tracking.

Did no one go to the boss and have him check your work? I have never seen such a complete and total development failure as what was just released in Odyssey re. exploration. The stupid little game you are forced to play in hacking sites reminiscent of a 1980's era Japanese video game is so absurd....I'm speechless. Further, all the loot drops into space and requires you to chase it around with your mouse?!?! WHO THE HELL THOUGHT THAT WAS A GOOD IDEA? Seriously?!?!? I had nearly perfect skills, and you've made exploration into a game of chance and mouse dexterity. Also, taking away scanning bonuses from their present state and turning the Astrometric skill into something I need to train now to 5 to get the bonuses back is just a further attempt to screw over the players who have trained their skills in favour of the lowly noob. You guys have failed so bad with this it’s truly shocking. Stop trying to fix what isn’t broken and at the very least, have someone with half a brain review your work before you implement such ridiculous changes. You are ruining this game.

Unless I'm not doing it right you've now removed the r-click on the ship when docked so I can't use the 'undock' option, I'm now FORCED to use the Station Services 100% of the time.

I have Station Services minimized 99.99% of the time (coz its ****). I NEVER want to see what office, guests or agents there are on any of my current 17 chars!

Station Service should be kept to processes that require more interaction than the single click of undocking. I'm disappointed by this change. Cry

Maybe you really need to think about making a Station Services bar similar to the NeoCom.

It's broken and it's been broken for a long time and it'll be broken for some time to come.

New gate-jump effect is awesome, really gives a sense of going somewhere unlike the old bubble-out-and-disappear. I haven't made a 30-jump trip yet however.

Probes that auto-recall on jump/expire have made it too easy for a pilot to never lose probes, now there needs to be a way of losing probes, so let us target and shoot or smartbomb them.

I've never done hacking or mined ice, so can't comment there.

I came here just to check if CCP doesn't care a dime about their costumers.

Why do I think so? (not the first time btw but CCP seemed to be improving by now)

Because feedback from both thread about new scanning system was completely ignored except for small interface tweaks. And this feedback was given by primary audience of this expansion - people who were actively involved in what you call exploration. Here are the links:

If this is the current CCP attitude towards their costumers I see no other choice except unsubscription.

- The gate jump effect, after the first 'wow'viewing, is literally nauseating. motion sickness / game sickness. Could we please have an option to disable that graphic. A long hisec run is murder!

- The wheel menu thing on the 'scanner' button is a redundant, bling, graphic. Except for the uppermost option it opens exactly the same window ... just additional wasteful clicks

- Moving the undock function from the ever-present bottom left to the station services panel is a major irritation, altho no doubt we will adjust. Most times that panel is redundant real estate, so I keep it very small to free up workspace, so this change forces me to either keep it bigger or more clicks to enlarge it when I want to undock.

- That system autoscan thing cannot be good for lag. No experience with it yet but looking around for ways to inactivate it entirely.

- Inability to 'ignore' scan results is a real nuisance and the setup of the probe scanner window virtually forces you to waste screen real estate on it. You cannot set it up to just show what you want, you cannot minimise the no-help columns, and you cannot ignore the individual sites of no interest to you. Those are not features guys, they're retrograde changes. When I was ratting I would run a system scan, and set all the useless sites to ignore, that way I'd be able to keep that window smallish and only showing FHs and sanctums ... or whatever I was working with. Now to be able to see the site type I have to have that window take up about 1/4 of my screen width.

p.s. Someone stole all my deep space probes too. Mebbe that was the evil intent of the recent DDOS attack. :-(

I guess I am almost a 'vet' by now. Hopefully not too bitter and managing to help more than I hinder. I build and sell many things, including large collections of bookmarks.

I'd really like to fly a Navy Harbinger, but without extra cap or cap regen to compensate for the lack of a weapon cap use bonus I feel like I'm better off just using a regular harbinger. It's considerably cheaper, not significantly different in function and has less cap issues.

Also random public sites showing up in space all the time is not something I'm interested in seeing.

You sneaky devils CCP.

You know exactly what I'm talking about.

Someone sneaked in a fix to make it possible to shrink the text input part of a chat window down to one line properly. Previously you were always forced to have padding at the top and bottom, messing with my zen. No mention of it in the patch notes either.

Whoever it was, I <3 you.
