Re-orderable watchlist? Oh yay!

Can we have the following little tweaks to it while you working on it too:

Drag and drop from WL to chat
Resize WL columns
Add additional WL Columns

Overall is there a way to quantify the server pain for adding slots to the watchlist? If so, what is the pain for adding slots to the watchlist?

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)


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!
...

Hello CCP Punkturis, thank you for your help

Actually, I dont have the "Pilot has neutral/no standing" but only "Pilot has neutral standing"

It works when i set ppl neutral, but i would have to add every person in eve to have that effect

I posted a bug report about it a year ago. My whole corp is suffering from this issue and we would all be glad if this could be resolved.


Bug Report about coloring "no standings" neutrals


5 petitions and around 10 GMs could not help on this issue. I hope you can

From "http://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Overview_Guide"

"If you do not see 'pilot has no standing' in your colortag settings Pressing the 'Reset All' button at the bottom of the appearance tab will add that item to colortag and background. Despite the name, this button resets only the colortags/backgrounds."

Hope that helps.

BTW, for reference, it is 2 different colortags, and by default no standings is unchecked and at the bottom of the list.

Oh wow I found it

I cant believe this is finally fixed

Seriously I had around 5 petitions about it, even filed a bug report and NONE of the GMs/Senior GMs could ever help me.

Cant believe u two helped me so quick. I am seriously disappointed by CCP Ingame support. I will forward this to my corpies

Thanks!

Ya! Awesome stuff! Keep the Goodness coming!

Would like to add, would it be possible to create a Personal Status Icon like: AFK, Busy, ect. For chat channels? But would only show in the channel you Right-click it i. That would be shiney Big smile

Whomever said, "You only get one shot to make a good impression," was utterly wrong. I've made plenty of great impressions with my Autocannons 

How about some filtering where it's really needed, the Blueprint lists under the S&I interface?

This is awesome! These are the kinds of cool nifty little improvements/tweaks that I love to see! Makes us all aware that the devs even work on the tiniest little annoyances!

Here is a crazy idea:
CLOCK with LOCAL TIME ZONE !!
So I know what time it is


Doesn't your operating system have one? Blink


I'm using 10" tablet for EVE, window mode wastes too much screen area

And yes I do have system time,
but Alt+Tabing is not always an option when watching out for can flippers and other idiots, besides my Intel video card don’t agree with window switching too well, and have hard enough time dealing with screen refreshes entering/exiting base or jumping

I know there is more important things to be fixed especial in GUI , descriptions, descriptions, descriptions... does Loyalty Points store window rings any bells?

But clock with correct time is like the step two when coding it in
1. Put clock in
2. Put time in
3. Put right time in ( ok maybe 3)

Yes, yes I know we all need one time, but how hard is it to put one extra line with the server time +6 (or whatever), it shouldn’t take more than one hour project

Little things like that add up and cause new users not activating subscriptions after test drive (game is very complicated for noobs, and very discouraging especially when you get your ship blown by noob prying can flipper )

But if you don’t want more customers keep up the good job, I know of at least 3 people you lost (or didn’t get )

ps.
A little software keyboard to help with pen input would be totally sweet, since the windows one doesn’t work too well over EVE , but that would be way more work than adding 6 to server time ...
