Logged in pretty happy to see all the changes, then quickly got pissed moments after undocking and running d-scan while warping around looking at stuff.

The hotkeys in D-Scan and System scan still cannot be changed, and what's worse, now even when I DON'T have the d-scan or system scanner selected they will change my filters when I use them for ACTUAL hotkeys. If I've got my fingers on f1-f4 etc why in the hell would I want to stretch down to QWER and your other default (crap) hotkeys for approach, orbit, keep range etc.

Before this patch the hotkeys were still stupid, but now I can't even work around it I simply have to use something else. It's not even a good feature as I can't change what hotkeys for the scanner switch to what profile, leaving me with default settings to choose from wow how useful! Also if you have d-scan and system scan open at the same time, pushing 1 for example will change both to "Anomalies" and "Active Overview Settings" IS ANYONE THERE THINKING AT ALL

I can't even play in this, signing off till it's fixed.

I have directonal scan and probe scan in one tabbed window to save screen space. Now with the rearrange buttons I have way longer mouse ways when tabbing between the to and hit the scan button. This is clearly not an improvement.
Changing the probe preset (different size) doesn't update the probe size slider.
Having a fixed minimum size for the solar system map window sucks as well given the limited screen space.

The new drones short-cuts are most welcome, thank you. However.... If you select a group or individual drones, and hit the short-cut, it does not launch those drones. It launches a random set of drones. Not to useful sending mining drones out to attack a rat or ganker

not overall horrible (yet?) havent done any explo scanning yet.
alot of the issues could be fixed by giving players more control over the UI: opacities, sounds, bar positions.... it would go a long way.
as of now: signature spheres cannot be seen, the dscan gong makes me want to punch screen and dscan bar needs to go on top.

Since the latest update, I have found using my number keys assigned to my ship modules to be completely unusable with the dscan and probe scanner windows now.

I assign the modules to these keys because using shift-f1 or ctrl-f1 for mid/low slots for example is a really far reach from the bottom to top of the keyboard and is kinda hard for me to use those key combos.

So now, as I drop probes and hit 1 to cloak, both my dscan and probe scan filters change, forcing me to have to reset them manually to my own personal filters (which can't be keybound) before I can scan.

It's broken since it changes both dscan and probe scan filters at the same time. It also should be changed to allow reassignment of the 1-0 keys. Those are some of the most used/customized keys in mmo's for combat, and you've essentially forced them into a singular function with zero ability for modification.

At least change its function back to how it was previously. For example, prior to this recent update, if I were to click out into space and use my 1-0 keys it would not change dscan or probe scan filters. However if dscan or probe scan windows were currently selected, then using those keys to activate modules would change filter in the selected window.... Now that amount of actual functionality I could live with.

CCP, firstly thanks for your continued effort to improve the player experience in Eve.

I do have some feedback in relation to the new D-Scan changes.

1) That noise, please make option to get rid of, solo pew means I use D-Scan a lot, feel for Wormies.
2) The angle and distance bars are very close together and not as well pronounced, especially in 90% scaling.
3) Why did you move the bars to the bottom, my opinion is that this change was just cause you could therefore unnecessary.

Thank you o7

Bad windows desing. Annoying sounds. Mouse scroll reversed. Nice options like highlight selected signatures removed...

please return directional scan button to the top left where it was originally this allows it to be used more easily on the right side of the screen where the overview is located by default.

i noticed other improvements to both probe and directional scan which are both welcomed, however it is desirable to return the directional scan button to its original location in the top left, or at least add an option to alternate the UI scan button location.

please consider my suggestions as many people who use directional scan on a daily basis agree that the location of the scan button should be returned to its original location.

At this point it should be abundantly clear that, whatever UI improvements may have been included in the new scanning system, they're completely overwhelmed by the obnoxious sounds and poor interface design. The previous system is much, much nicer to use, and we want it back. Admit that the new system is a failure, at least give us the option to use the previous system if you aren't willing to roll it back entirely, and maybe later you can reintroduce the new signature icons (the only good part of these changes).

What's with the 10 minute respawn timer for nullsec ore anomalies?

Since everything else is too costly to do, they are suing videogames for laughable reasons, like usage of red cross logo.

Please make a check/uncheck box to turn on/off the 1-9 hotkeys in probe and DScan ( some people use them to activate their modules ). You can put it in SETTINGS > SHORTCUTS tab.

Really anoying to have the filters changed every time I activate my modules.

Really, its killing my gameplay

They LITERALLY fail at logic. 1.You're authorized agent of Empires/CONCORD. 2.Its on module that protects you, not on weapon. 3.Old Earth is GONE, nobody remembers any conventions. 4.Human cloning is banned, this game has human clones. Also, smartbombs and Minmatar weapons deal radiation damage, omg. Bear
