awesome work Karkur!! epic as always!! especially being able to select and copy spreadsheet items over to 3rd party software! sooo made of win and will cut down sooooo much time!

one suggestion though on the little things...

could you add a tab in the notes section on peoples character: information section in game that allows corp directors and recruiters to share notes on a character?
would greatly benefit corp management and recruitment!

I'm pretty sure that you become one of most liked devs, you know that? For sure from the female part of CCP staff : I love you :* sh*t, did i said it out loud


Again a lot of very good work based on our needs, things that will make our game even more fun. I like the big features and I can't wait the full Incarna iteration, but nothing make us happy like this small things

Well, Explorer, you should be proud of such worker
Indeed I am. Big smile

So no interest in industry UI changes? Are they just not a priority? Sad

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 :)
Do you mean that whenever you show market details on something, it opens that place in the browse tab? I wanted to make this so you had to manually do this, mostly because I don't want people to lose their place in the browse tab if they are just checking out this one item (maybe I shouldn't worry about that?)... there could also be some problems with finding the right place in the list if the market is just loading at the same time you do this.

Perhaps make it work like bread crumbs so that you remove the right click step =D

Very nice and handy work again. Thanks for those.

I would like to leave comment related to the "see which orders are yours in the "Details" tab" function; would be also nice to see which orders are mine in the "corporation orders"-tab. If you can add that to the pile in some point, would be kewl.

Other than that - if you have time, please browse through the "CCP unofficial todo"-list and "recommended common good improvements"-list for future reference. Might find something small and worth toying there.

I know this isn't entirely your department, but could you fix corporations?

I've wanted shares to be useful for about 5 years now, I think, and role management is still a concrete octopus.

I can shift click. But if nothing is selected, nothing is copied.

With some selective reading and quoting I've solved your problem.

There is one thing I would love to have in Eve, right click on an item and be able to search assets from there.

CCP karkur returns with another dev blog on the UI improvements that will be a part of the Escalation to Inferno release. You can check out the blog right here; as always, your feedback is most appreciated!

All good things that will make EVE that little bit easier to use day to day...

...and we'll completely take for granted within a week or two of going live, and resume complaining that you never fix the UI

Can we please get an Import / Export function for the quickbar ?

You guys / gals have done some awesome work and I have the quick bar set up just right for my indy toon on one machine but there is no way to easily capture it and import it onto my laptop client or the client for my other toons ...

I'll even say PLEASE!!!!

Keep up the awesome work. This from a bitter old vet who is falling in love with EVE all over again ....

A suggested improvement to the new UI improvement of EWar icons (by the cap/shield/arm/hull display) - when you hover over or right click and it brings up the list of people using that ewar on you, hold down ctrl and click as if it were the overview so you don't have to work through a menu to target them. Suggest only one addition to the view at the bottom level (the list of who's targetting): Distance from target. Get the client to pull this already existing information from the overview instead of retransmitting it from the server for this menu item. Leave the menu for other special actions like align, etc.

If you do this a lot of combat vets would kiss your boots ;)

Please note that if you have this option enabled, the market orders might load more slowly at times. The reason is that we are using information from the "My orders" list to know which orders are yours and that list needs to be fetched regularly from the server.

This is interesting. Putting on my backseat driver hat, would it not be more efficient to modify the market details query to fetch another column that the server would flag if a record belongs to the player? (I assume sending character ids for ALL orders would be troublesome, never expose to the client information that is not mean for display, because someone WILL hack it.) This does probably require to modify the protocol, and not just the UI, but would remove the need for another trip to the server.
