I'm liking the compact local chat view. Now if you could also make 0.0 local chat a delayed mode channel that'd be lovely.

Thanks, the improvement to the watchlist is much needed. I'd still like to see the fleet window recieve some treatment. Drag and drop would be bawlsome. Being able to move various fleet members into and out of squads, wings etc would make things a lot easier. Perhaps even dragging them into the fleet from the icon in the chat window. Thanks.

Love almost all these changes! The agent list getting taller seems iffy... more scrolling/less agents to see at once.

Favorite change has to be the compact local/channel participant list. The ability to sort by standings would improve this even more as been stated by others.

Thank you for some very welcome improvements!

In the local chat screenshot, you can see neutrals [=] have a grey background color.

In my client, all neutrals have no background color.

How is it possible, to get a grey (or even any other?) background color for neutrals?

Often I dont see neutral on my overview in time, because they have no background color.

I really want them to have colors! (yellow is my favourite)

The cargowindow of assembly arrays and mobile labs: Please add the name of the array to the title of that window!
Moving material from array to array gets confusing when all windows are named "Assembly array" even if each array has been given a descriptive name (displayed on the overview)

All games have QQ, but only Eve has Q.Q

Open overview settings (if you're not undocked, you can open the system menu and set a keyboard short cut to "Open Overview Settings" and open it in station)
Go to Appearance tab
Tick "Pilot has neutral/no standing"
Right click on it, select Yellow!

The only reference they made is that there is a new icon for people chatting from gate side. I'd love it if I could get on text chat with my mates while I'm at work or otherwise unable to hop on eve.

Great job though on slimming down the contacts list, Local will never be the same Cool

Dear Punkturis,

Your idea to book a cosy cottage for us at the weekend is a swell idea. I shall select some fine vin rouge for us as we get comfortable. We could listen to relaxing music, on the eve jukebox (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bPSmWdcXHs) as our adventure getaway gets warmed up.

I could picture us laughing and getting tipsy as we browse thousands of spreadsheets about these little things, and playing with idea's. We snuggle up close and whisper sweet nothings to each other, like why when one double tap's the jukebox top frame and it, as if by magic, turns into a sexy wee mini player. Until, one jump's into a system or docks up, it, as if by moar magic, restores it's self. Although I'm not quite sure what you mean by "shuush honey, I'll batphone TEAM BFF" but I have every confidence in you.

As the night moves on, we finish up our wine by the moonlight and do a little nightswimming. We stagger up to the beach panting and all dreamy eye'd talking out of breath about how the minimzed jukebox might be able to have functional icons on it. Then you draw < II > in the sand. Mind reader !!

Oh, I got the chocolates you sent me, I did like the note "wtf!? try hotkeys, creeper!" and a wee handgun drawing on it. Bless!

I have to go now and book 1 x Cosy Cottage and 1 x Snowmobile to pick you up.

Bubye

I do hope that, when you work on the shield charge stuff, you do not
limit it to the bonus from the squad/wing/fleet booster, but also to
fitted modules.

It's kind of annoying to get into a ship that has a huge shield buffer
from a POS's SMA , only to see it being at 20% shield.

I can understand the mechanics when you board a ship from any
SMA - first, the game dropps it into space, then stores you current
vessel, then you get in, and only then the shield extenders start to count -
which explains why the shield extenders have to "charge".

Would be cool if that would change, so shield and armor ships alike
can be combat-ready when you board then from a SMA.

As far as the annonced changes go - hooray !

Drag and drop watchlist ... *does the king julian dance* I like to move it move it ...
