as for UI changes.... is it really hard to do something about the CYNO Mods (icon)

I mean.. its not that hard to have the Covert Cyno and regular Cyno to have different icons... can it?

I my self have never made a mistake on lighting a cyno, but I wouldnt be surprised if there are alot of ppl in eve who have managed to make that mistake cuz ccp managed to ignore that change for years now...

sorry just my opinion.

or does CCP have plans on doing something about it?

A small request regarding broadcast hotkeys.

Can be found here:

In short, I would love a hotkey for broadcasting "allign to" and "warp to". Also a hotkey for "warp fleet at 0".

Best regards Animorpheus

Suggestion: Ability to set speed of a ship to a value directly, in addition to clicking into the speed indicator
Keywords: UI, Speed
Note: It's hard to set a speed exactly, especially on very fast ships. I suggest the option to right click into the speed indicator, select "set speed" and type the desired value directly. Would also make formation flying for shows a lot easier :)

Suggestion: Change visuals on mining laser crystals (Bonus: change corrosponding mining laser visuals as well)
Keywords: Mining, Laser, Crystal
Note: Sometimes it's hard to identify which crystals I have loaded currently because some of them look the same or very similar. I suggest using brighter, more varied colors like the laser weapon crystals do. As an added bonus, change the mining laser visuals to represent the colors of the crystals, so we can have rainbow mining fleets :)

Could you please add the ability to see the training length for each individual level of a skill, as well as the total training time to level 5? so far the only way to see this is to look at the requirements tab of a particular item, or to use an out of game skill planning tool such as evemon.

  • Suggestion: include region and station owner in the jump clone window
  • Keywords: jump clones

I'm sure this has cropped up before, but i'm far too lazy to read though all 40 pages to check.

At the moment i quite often end up having to lookup the system names my jump clones are in to find out where the hell they are, as unless by coincidence it happens to be the system we're deploying to, the fact i have a jump clone in QGB-0J32TYS75285N will generally mean very little to me.

It'd be nice if the jump clone window listed the region, and in an ideal world also who owned the station rather than just the funny, funny name they've given it.

  • Suggestion: Update the wiki entry for ships
  • Keywords: wiki

When you go to the wiki pages of ships, like , the bonus of the hull are not displayed anymore, which, I assume, is one of the major reason why you'd want to visit the wiki page of a ship in the first place.

Suggestion: Add radial menu to the Survey Scanner results items
Keywords: ui, survey scanner
Note: I am used to having this now in the Overview and feel sad every time I try to target a rock from the Survey Scanner and have to resort to Cntrl Click

Suggestion: Ability to set Gamma correction for UI in 3D settings
Keywords: UI
Note: On some displays, eve is too dark, so i need either to turn maximum brightness (on monitor), or where max brightness is not enough, i have to adjust global Gamma for graphic card. it would be great, to adjust gamma just for eve (some games have this settings, so it should be not a problem to add it here)

Are you a forum alt? Have you ever wondered why your experience on the forums is always so frustrating and unrewarding? This may help.

Suggestion: add a control over the intensity of the jump animation
keywords: nausea, vertigo, UI
notes: Jump animation can give me vertigo/motion sickness.
Adding a control that would allow me to tone down the impact of the animation would help settle my stomach.

You know what I want to see..

When you enter an incursion, you get the Incursion Constellation chatwindow that pop's up. it's great.. The problem lies when you Log INTO an Incursion system.. If you have your chat windows in the bottom left, it resizes the windows to the small little popup size.. It gets really annoying having to resize your windows every time you log in.

Can't you just make it always snap into the currently active chat window.. and when loggin in to an Incursion area, have that window loaded last ?

Suggestion : Show Cold down timers on modules
Keywords :Cold down Timers
for example example Bomb Launcher - you know when you can use it only by guessing.
You can use some stopper , but it is hard as hell to do it while in TIDI.

Suggestion: highlight chosen player on-grid to display bracket as an obvious colour

When flying a small gang nano comp in space - it would be nice to be able to quickly see a chosen player to gauge direction and distance our fleet is moving. One can set to see members in fleet but what with half approaching the web scram mega it's 50/50 whether you get killed or not

Suggestion : Increase fuel usage for Motherships and escalate it even more on Titans, adjust fuel bays to keep range.
Keywords: Supercapitals, Jump Fuel Usage
Currently carrier and titan use the same amount of fuel to travel 1 LY , so like having eco-hybrid-solar-car and 16 wheel truck burning the same amount of fuel to travel 100km

Suggestion : Add Higsec Factions LVL4 , LVL5 agents to NPC Nullspace
Keywords: Missions
To create new content , make easier move to npc nullspace for higsec people.
Newcomers also have issues generating them self enough isk for pvp , as they already have bad standings to local pirate factions.
If those missions will earn more isk than in higsec - then there is big possibility to lure more players to NPC nullsec.
Pretty please Lol
