You had 3 weeks to 'help out'' and managed to add more usable features than the whole of ccp could do in 3 years?


Ahahah soooo true, very little efforts are needed to make players happy, hopefully CCP has now understood this

Sounds all very exciting but I'm a simple person and enjoy simple things. Like clicking minimize on windows and it happens the 1st time, not the 5th

Great job guys! I'm especially looking forward to the "Loot" button.

Thank you Team Papercuts, I really love UI improvements :)

About the drag and dropable target icons. This feature is very nice, but I noticed that selections done by keyboard shortcuts, "select next target" and "select previous target" still cycles through the icons in order of when they were targeted. So if you arrange your target icons and try to manage target selection stuff without using your mouse, it's rather unpredictable to tell which target will be selected next (unless you have a good memory).

It will be nice if "select next/previous target" will always select the target visually next to the current one :)

Three things ran through my mind as I read this dev blog.

1) CCP is doing all this in 3 weeks? +1 Big smile

2) CCP has been holding out on us and this makes them look bad. -1 Sad

3) CCP is making an effort to tell us the truth or they would have just made the changes and said little. +1 Big smile


total = +1 Big smile

Please make improvements/fixes to the current EVE more often (like the ones in this blog) and add new content less often.

Today, i was joking in my corp's forum about the Crucible Expansion webpage looking more like final patch notes than a feature webpage ... but now i understand and appreciate ... good move !

A good expansion does not necesarily contain a bunch of ground-breaking features (which to my eyes "time dilatation" actually is ......) it could also be crafted from many well thought and long anticipated minor tweaks. The Crucible Expansion has the potential to meet both concepts, some major topline changes/improvement/enrichment of game mechanics and a large collection of tiny improvements, that - taken alone and individual as single change - would not make me play or leave the game but as a collection massively contribute to a positive game experience.

so thanks for Team Papercut ! it seems to pay for CCP to make these rather unusual management decisions.....

Damn, that's really nice, guys...

Looks like small things, but going by how they are an annoyance during game play over and over, they are actually huge improvements....

I had already given up on seeing drone improvements that would matter to the grind...

so, thanks and cheers Big smile

What's the range on reconnecting to lost drones? It should probably be the pilots control range or I see this getting abused heavily.

"Also, have you ever been flying along, and your camera randomly rotates to something random off in the distance? You probably hovered over a target icon by accident. That feature is gone now. No more random auto-panning to targets." But I liked this feature. It was useful sometimes.

Other then that, awesome. Some very much needed improvements here.

I want them there doing that kind of things as often as they can!

We love you guys.

Any ideas about organizing your stuff in the hangar? 300 items for R&D and manufacturing with lots of BPC etc (just being able to pile them would be great), anyone?
