That sounds like a great !!!! PLAN !! Big smile

Can you add Jita prices to the fitting window too, so we know how much the ships we fly are worth ?

Thanks so much, that's awesome! ^_^

I'm going to slide this in as it's at least tangentially related, allow grouping more/all modules

How about a quick little DPS graph that indicates damage vs. range that assumes no tracking issues?

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

Why are you spending Dev time on functionality that we already have multiple, perfectly adequate tools for?

Please spend dev time fixing problems the player base has not already independently fixed - there are far more effective ways for you to use their valuable time than making your own version of EFT.

That seems great, but I would like to see more drone stats, mainly control range

Because no player made tool has ever ceased to be updated ever. Said no-one.

How about actual drone damage if you have several different types in your drone hold? Currently, only the highest DPS drone in the hold counts, but that often results in misleading information.

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.

If PYFA and EFT are dropped before EvE dies it's (hopefully far in the future) death, I'll buy a hat and eat it.

Fitting Management:
- Buy the entire ship + fitting from the markethub, using a similar window to the multiple sell.

Fitting Window:
- Compare multiple fits to each other, either by having us open the window for multiple shipfits currently not active; or some seperate compare panel.
- Time to align shown
- Grouping weapons
- more distinct way of unloading ammo. I'm often unequipping the module itself.
- Splitting drone damage per drone type
- Show AB / MWD + overheat speeds in the navigation box
- Show damage + overheat damage in the damage box

Because basic features in EVE client should be useful and working, covering the day-to-day needs. Extra-special features can be left for 3rd party tools.

@feedback

  • Create a list view for fitting modules, instead of (at least for me) intransparent graphical module icons.
  • Mass fitting functionality comparable to the industry mass production thingy.
  • Fitting browser with rating functionality corp / alliance / global (maybe integrate battleclinic for global scope?).
  • Fitting simulator: Add modules with search function in auto-complete list (type just some characters, get all meta versions for this type).
  • Fitting simulator: Show all missing skills for draft fittings.
  • Fitting simulator: browse modules basing on effects (e.g. for more damage: turrets, modules, rigs).


Besides that: great idea to finally touch that area! *yay*

IMHO, more than just improving the fitting window, I would love to see a way to switch active fittings in space (via SMA or mobile depot) without having to drag modules to cargo and vice versa.

I'd like to see what the DPS/Range/Tracking stats are on an ammo type without having to load/unload the ammo into the turrets all the time.

FleetUp.com uses a very nice 'effectiveness' rating for a ship fitting. Calculating and showing a pilots skills/mastery for a certain fit would be a nice addition, highlighting where you have room to improve your skills

1. Filling guns or launchers by dropping an entire stack would be great. Destroyers are a pain ;)

2. Buy this fit from the market at the lowest price button.

3. However if you can make a button that says "Take this fit and fit me X more of these ships just like this one, everything is in the hangar, off you go Mr Client" I will get down on my knees and worship the ground you stand on at Fanfest Shocked

For me, I'd like to be able to see, in order of importance:

  • Align time, in seconds - The amount of time it takes to go from being stationary to entering warp.
  • Drone control range
  • Ore / Ice yield - I know that you can already see a yield in the module, but EFT currently goes one step further and changes the ship's DPS stat into a Yield stat for ships fitted with mining modules. This would be nice to have on the fitting screen too (maybe it could work a similar way?).

A "try before you buy" mechanic would be enormously useful to me too.

Why are you spending time on nagging about awesome stuff when you could blow up ships? Shocked
