Y/N? pls discuss

If relativity equals time plus momentum, what equals relativity, if the momentum is minus to the time?

No.

It's already far to easy to evade prober's and pirates, this would make it even harder from them

I lied :o

+1

It wouldn't modify any core game mechanics just make scanning more comfortable. Pushing the scan every few seconds when a neut is in the system is just silly and funkiller. Or at least give a hotkey to the dscan button

+1 to the "No" idea. However...

I might be tempted to reconsider *IF* and only if, it was achieved through the use of a CPU intensive Mid-slot module... That way it would be compensated for by (self-gimping) to a degree...

I bet your bots would have it a lot easier if it was on auto repeat. (if you want, replace "bots" with "non-effort grinders", it's essentially the same thing anyway).

bots use server information, thye dont use the Dscan nor local window

Would be cool to have some kind of rotating radar sweep in the corner, the current system is a bit clunky not really very futuristic.

Maybe combine it with the removal of local Twisted

There's no doubt it should auto repeat, it's silly that it doesn't. -1 for the mid slot to effectively perform this for the user. Would your ship really need to sacrifice a slot to effectively press a button for the pilot? No, that's just silly.

Look I've been tapping that button forever so this won't make me any safer but it will make my life easier and better living through better software (and pharmaceuticals) is always a good thing.

Make it so already.

I live in a wormhole, so of course using DScan is second nature. Would an auto DScan thing make it easier? Yeah, sure. Is that a good thing? No, not really. There's supposed to be an element of danger out there. If you can't handle clicking DScan to give you the 14AU intel you want when you need it, perhaps you're not ready for anything outside of high sec yet.

Six months in the hole... it changes a man.

auto scan every 5 or 10 seconds and maybe a rework of the D-Scan interface would be nice.

Heh... odds are that I'm clicking faster than any automated thing would, but that's a seriously valid point... imagine everyone sending DScan clicks every few seconds to the server?

Ouch.

Even with D-scan you can still get royally screwed. You have seconds to see someone on the warp in to a Sleeper sight.

Likely you have less than a minute if you're at a Mag/Lad/Grav becuase the predator needs probes unless they've scanned down the sites prior to you goign to work them.

Thats what makes it Fun. The threat of fiery death hangs over you every second you're outside of your POS shields.

+1 to the removal of Local in Null and LowSec though.

ccp should introduce probes that do it for you. probes you can drop wherever you are gonna hang out at. expire timer just like normal probes, configurable so you can set the timer on it. cant be picked up once launched and needs a high slot to launch to make sure you pay a price for using them.

its not the the fact thats its annoying to constantly hit that d scan every, almost all the time, its all the needless clicking/strain it can put your fingers/hand after long periods of time. i dont like botters but if ccp doesnt fix this, i dont see why people just wont create macros for it.

You know those little squeezy spring things you can use to strengthen your hands and fingers?

Yeah, they're cheap and effective.

I support this idea. Hey this is a sci-fi game, a scanner running permanently is not that far fetched.

You tear harvesters starting to cry because numb rescanning gets easier for people? Go one step further, let a sound play when something new appears on DScan or make new entries bright green background which dissolves with every scan cycle, say after 10 seconds of scanning it's 'old' and not highlighted any more.

I'd also support putting local into delayed mode everywhere.

Dude, I live in a hole. Making DScan automated would help me and I think it's a bad idea. No tears, no whines, just the simple fact that some areas of the game don't need to be over-simplified. DScan is an active means of intel gathering, not passive. You want the data, you actively click to get the data. If they automated it, turned it to a passive intel, it would have to be nerfed significantly to balance it.
