If you have a destination selected, it would be really nice, if it would show up in the jump clone menu how many jumps your destination is away from each of the jumpclones.

I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of the post above and sincerely hope you didn't waste your time reading it. Yes, I do feel bad about it.

Ability to turn off drone damage notifications.

I second this motion!!! I like that we can have them on now if we want, but PLEASE let us turn them off! I can never see what my guns are doing in the constant flood of drone hits! For the love of all that is holy, just make a check box in the damage notification section in the escape menu!

That is all, and thank you CCP for the recent expansion, overall it was full of win.

One of my little things: Windows that I have open when I close the client, remaining open when I reopen the client. Some already do this, for which I'm glad. Some do not, such as the Journal.

I have no little things.

Curly hair options in character creator:
I mean I know there's a lot of pilots who would kill for a fro, but just something more appropriate for the art direction would be great.

Purchasable add space on the tickers in Captain's Quarters Big Screen:
For corp recruiting, hate mail, or player event organization... Hell jack the cost and you got a lovely little ISK sink for griefer-luv letters alone.

And the Sampo:
In-game Spreadsheets for the accessories tab? share-able? *drool*

Keep up the good works.

I have one tiny little gripe with one of the new features released with Crucible... Automatically approaching some container in space if you are out of range to "open" it. Ship heading and speed are incredibly important in EVE's player vs player mechanics.

TLDR: "Automatic approach the container and open it" as I will call it should not over ride player issued ship commands... such as align to, orbit, and keep at range.

I know it's at best a nit pick but there are certain scenarios in EVE where this convenience feature stops being convenient and starts becoming a hazard.

Example? Say I'm attempting to salvage a recently cleared wormhole combat anomaly with a nice squishy Noctis that has "Uncloak and turn me into pretty fireworks" written down the side of the hull. In this situation I want to be aligned to something, going full speed, and ready to warp the instant I smell a covop ship's exhaust fumes. Having my ship cancel its "align to" order because I tried to open a wreck that was 2501 meters away is incredibly frustrating and could possibly spell doom for the over zealous ship. Especially if I'm zoomed out far enough to view a very large wreck field but not close enough to notice my ship has decided to become a rebellious self-destructive ****.

Thank you for listening.

please provide the option to display corp and aliance of pilots in local alongside pilot name and picture - when you care about affiliations it is tedious to have to right-click on each pilot to see which corp he belongs to.

How about a cleaned up text box for displaying damage notifications. Or possible the ability to move it around, It feels very 2003 to me.

Perhaps just a cleaned up version of the combat log that doesn't scroll so quickly and can be easily color coded. As it is, in order to view the log as a whole it takes up a ridiculous amount of screen real estate.

audio notification (or notification popup) when somebody drops you a convo while having the client minimized

Instead of this would it not be possible to adapt the floating DPS indicator other MMOs use? In my opinion STOs is the best but others would be preferable to the current system of indications.

Those doing PI in low sec and null sec gain access, and lower taxes, the better their standing is to the owner of the customs office.

Whereas those doing PI in hisec pay the same customs office taxes whether their standings to the faction in whose space they are doing PI is -2 or +10.

This is wrong .

The higher the persons faction standing in hisec the lower the tax rate should be.

From an RP perspective those with the higher standing have contributed more to cost of maintaining security in hisec.

I would like to see the following please

To start more than one job or research if I have all the items and skills (I am sure this is in many a post before me)

Merge my items and ship windows with the station window where geust,agents and offices show. If this is not possible to be able to actually close the station window so it does not show up when ever I dock.

Would love to be able to stack BPC's (again I am sure has been asked for but I think I read someplace its hard to do)

and the biggy be able to log in and out of characters without restarting the client its a major pain in the $%£
(pretty sure I seen that meantioned somewhere as well)

I dont think all are little things from a programming point of view its just a few of the things that bug me.

We get a log entry when some random person is scrambling another random person. We do get a message when some random person is activating self destruct. But we don't get log messages when some randoms persons ship explodes? Knowledge is power! Explosions are fun! We need more knowledge about random ship explosions!

Self-destruct option for POS modules.
Not only for instances where the laser crystals 'jam' and make the module unable to be unanchored, but also in instances where you may want to quickly remove a POS that has damaged weapon modules.

Shake up the station storage UI.
i.e. 'Items', 'Ships' & station containers.

Instead of these present this information as one window containing a treeview on the left of purchased station containers and a listview on the right of items within the currently selected container.

Where these 'station container' nodes can also contain ships.

What small things i would like to see hmmm..... (ok some may not be small but Im hoping Lol)

How about and may seem silly but most of the code i bet is already in game but how about 1-2 at most additional personal wallet divisions. Also maybe another 1-3 at most personal hangar divisions. Now i do not want take away the extra perks having a corporation gives you but I do feel in this day and age being able to have a place to save your isk like a savings and a place to keep bill money like a checking would be nice and in order. I do feel it would help reduce the amount of unneeded alts use specifically on the same account just for a savings.

Another things I would like to see is something like a priority marker for your active chat windows on a scale of say 1-10 so when you long in and out you can have you chats pop into the order that best works for you. This could be done out of the normal channel window section.

First Im will state i am in my flame suit since i Know anything regarding AUR is shunned by the community . Anyways with that said something for the NEX store that I think would be beneficial would be the ability to remove skills and reclaim the SP. So let me explain one i think that the removed skills should only give a % of trained SP say 55 -75 %. This way you are creating a sink for time put in but at the same time being able to reallocate the extra useless skills you may not need or have come to realize you don't want. The SP could be put back into the SP pool that CCP has used before as well. Lastly apart of that would the removal of the actual skill from your skill sheet with you could get say 55-75% of isk back based on current npc order prices.

I do feel there should also be a time frame limit like attribute remaps say once ever 12 months. This would help limit the fad of the month but at same time assisting players both new or old.

One other thing for the NEX store would be a full standings nor sec status but standings wipe. To be able to clear the board back to 0.0 for everyone. This is helpful for those that have spent months or even yrs to mission running to one faction and want to go change sides either for role playing purposes or just to be able to move around with your corp or solo.

Also I wanted to see about the possibility for pirates to be able to buy in segments sec status repairs from concord for LP say from helping out with incursions. This has nice potentional esp for rolepayers who want to come back to light side even if its temporary Big smile

I will also name quickly a couple thing i found in previous crowd sourcings as well which will conclude my post.

More Control Over Medals (being able to delete said medals)

One little thing here:

When I ALT-TAB out of a full-screen EVE client, my screen goes all pink and yellow, I have to ALT-CTRL-DEL and cancel to get my screen to look normal again.

Running on Windows 7

I believe I petitioned this when I tested Incarna or Incursion on SISI, was a known issue then, but almost a year later it's still not fixed.

2 little things:

1. It would be great if the region name on the star map didn't obscure the region I'm trying to look at. (Maybe there's a setting I've missed?)

2. It would also be cool if the "loot all" button was highlighted by default.
