I has idea!

Can we choose to open a Quick bar folder like a market category so that we can see them all together?

Could we open a market category or quick bar folder to show all of the items' details? New column in the market details saying which item it is. (with a slow load warning, and/or load abort if it's taking too long and we changed our mind) This would be great for checking prices of the same item type of multiple meta levels. Or maybe checking prices of all 4 cruiers of a race. Or maybe cruisers of all races! Sometimes I wanna buy a shuttle but I wanna see the prices of all of them cause I want w/e is cheaper in the station I happen to be in so I have to show details on each of the 4 shuttles individually.

"Omit blueprints" check box on search results

Can you guys PLEASE break up the gun categories into "gun type" so that my "425mm Autocannons" aren't all mixed with "Dual 180mm Autocannons"? And break apart the hardeners too. It's a great thing for both vets and newbs.... especially newbs that have to trudge through 15 types of 3 guns cause all 5 meta levels of all 3 guns are intermixed.

Is there any chance of having all of the overview settings saved to the server as well as locally?

Oh geeze, the UI guys are really starting to compete with Sreegs as my Favorite CCP Developer...

This is really wonderful and important stuff that you're doing: It makes the game more accessible to the new guys, and so much better for those of us that have been playing a while. Thank you for your hard work, it's very much appreciated.

Good grief! Really? You mean the behind the scenes market order details don't hold the details of who created them? So you can just say:

if (market_order.creator == char_name) then colour_it_purple

Other than that, looks good.

Of course the server knows who owns which order, but we don't want to send sensitive information like that to the client P

And open target cargo? That blank hotkey tooltip is maddening. Maybe Ctrl Shift C?

Could we get a filter for the Contracts page so we can easily see our own public or private contracts?

I threw together a mockup that you can see here

Industry/Manufacturing/Research UI needs some Karkur love, just sayin'.....

And yes, I would very much so donate to a PLEX for Beer: CCP Devs

Especially when they get it right like this devblog shows.

By the way, the reason (I imagine) that the tooltips defaulted to the text in the field was so you could hover over a text that was too large for the visible field and see a tooltip of the full text - have you removed this functionality?

are you gonna fix the r.a.m. rounding issue for t2 blueprints cause this is annoying ass hell that i have to 2500 ram to produce 2500 drones/crystalls/ammo etc, but i only need 250 r.a.m

Tbh this bug has been ingame for soon to be 3½ years and its still not fixed.

could you hyperlink the system name in the locator agent mail?
also please don't make the "enter name" dialog modal, sometimes you want to re-check the spelling of the char name but you can't use anything as long the window is up.

great changes so far!

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

regarding the "find group in browser tab" feature of the market window.

is there a reason why it can't be enabled all the time? If there is... could you add a setting "link market to browser tab". Modern IDEs have that so Eve needs that too :)

great work!

BUT! please don't code eve to work like windows 3.1

"It's now possible to copy items in the Quickbar into another Quickbar folder by CTRL dragging them over the new folder."

How would any new player figure that out? If i didn't read this dev blog i wouldn't know about it, and I would try and try to copy items from one folder to another using different controls. Or does crtl-C crtl-V still work on top of this option?

I hope you can understand on concern. you should have a button for even, on the ui a copy to folder button. Instead of all of these cool hidden features eve gets.

Another way to fix this would be to add a list of shortcuts in the Help pin window hat helps you play the game when your new, or old.


This is an excellent point.

But thank you for the updates just the same! Any work on UI improvements is always welcome!!
