Hurray for the little stuff!

Please fix the broken CTRL-key functionality next? It's a little thing, but annoying as hell. Team BorkTheUI has done its job too well and could use some love from BFF.

(See this post for details if need be on the Ctrl-key.)

Excelent CCP Soundwave - thanks.

Small annoying stuff:
Make comma on my numeric keyboard act like a period, thus no more trouble when entering prices.

Please fix it so that POD Kill mails show what implants were lost instead of just being blank.

We've added more default overviews. Instead of having "default" and "mining, you'll now have "general", "pvp", "WarpTo", "loot", "mining", "drones" and "all". Hell yes.

Hell yes. More useless noobs who can`t even adjust overview settings using their own brain \o/

At last!

But you forgot about smallest little thing that many of us requested since character creator release. Please add option to turn off portraits caching in local window. Portraits. Thousands of thousands of them Shocked SSD users is also crying.

uh-mazing, thank you

in the same jist of things i have a couple of suggestions, i know there are other places for them but i'm here now and these suggestions are particularly closely related to the specific changes in this blog

1) joining fleets with intact squads: inviting squad member still returns 'person in fleet already' but inviting squad leader prompts leader with option to join fleet with squad and fill an available squad spot prioritized by: wing commander in place > no wing commander in place > new wing without wing commander
addendum: fleet commander of the fleet being joined should have an additional option below 'move member' when right clicking the squad leader spot (filled or unfilled) that says 'move squad' and that squad leader, with squad intact, gets moved to whichever squad position leader chooses, **including** first squad position of a new wing (provided there is room for another wing)

2)Make the color of blueprint copies' icons red, or green, or orange, or a significantly different shade of blue... prettyprettyprettypretty please
alternatively leave the copy color blue (since those are dealt with in much larger quantites) and change the BPO color to silver or gold or something

...goes to post in suggestions thread as token penance

Been requesting this for the past 4 CSM terms, turns out it's complicated, and for good reasons... Read the meeting minutes for an answer (I think the best answer is in the CSM 3 meeting minutes, but I could be mistaken). I won't stop requesting this until they figure out a way however :p

Also, good work CCP, happy to see the little fixes coming :-)

PS: is the "b"---"lueprint" thingie worth 3 poker chips?

best patch i've read in months. New stuff is shinny, but working current stuff is much more useful in the long run. GJ BFF. Now to plough through the rest of my coursework and midterms so i can finally get back online to play!

These "little tweaks" are doing more to improve the average eve player experience than a dozen 'big feature expansions' would. Do more of this thing, less of that other thing, and you will have a very happy set of players.

Thanks for that. Small stuff matters!

Here are a couple annoying things that seem like easy 'fixes':

- When making a bookmark the generic text in the bm name field needs to be pre-selected, so that you can type over it without having to first select it.

- When people join the fleet, or move around in it, the fleet window auto scrolls to the top. This makes it very difficult to do anything with the contents of that window. This does not happen to other windows with dynamic content and needs to stop.

I'm assuming this is only in stations, not in SMAs or in space?

> NPC jamming has been updated and streamlined. They should all work with the same functionality and you can fit countermeasures. In other news, jamming NPCs are still annoying.

Thank you. I don't mission against Guristas much, but when I do this is a *****.

> Your personal ship fittings are going to be stored on the server, giving you the same functionality available to corp fittings. This means access to your personal fittings, regardless what computer you're using.

Team BFF is my BFF. If we get this for bookmark folders as well you will be worshipped as gods.

Now only if we have the same server side options for saving the current chat channels and overview settings that you have on the pc. Instead of going to another pc and having to do all over again the settings. Rolling Eyes

Nothing but goodness in this. This is the unglamorous scut-work that turns into that fabulous, mythical, oft-sought, rarely found, MMO Beast "Polish™"

The cost of any given small defect is minor. The aggregate cost of many small defects is greater than their sum, however. I'm glad CCP is realizing this, and realizing that when the user experience is fluid and natural, people will keep coming back happy to hand over their cash (see: Apple, even as much as I dislike their business model).

Please enable scroll locking of chat windows.

In other chat systems, such as mIRC and MSN, if I scroll up an active chat window, even if it is just by one line, that window no longer scrolls down as new lines are added. In this way, I can easily "lock" the window before leaving the computer, and then come back and resume reading, without having to scroll up and find the place where I left.



I don't know what the thingie is called formally, but it's the collection of dots showing the systems in m y autopilot sequence, e.g. dark green, light green, yellow, dark green. This shows 2 pieces of information: How many jumps I have left, and if any jumps are into dangerous (less than 0.5) systems.

These dots used to be organized vertically. Now they're no longer dots (which I'm cool with) and they're organized horizontally. I don't like that, because when I'm autopiloting in high-sec I'll often be chatting, maybe in "Help" or corp chat, and so the chat window will cover the rightmost portion of this "travel bar".

Please orient the travel-colour bar vertically again.

"When using the autopilot, your waypoints will be highlighted so you can see where on the route they are. This owns."

WOOO! OMG YES! YAY!

This should have been done years ago! (well, same thing for almost everything else on that list! Laughing

Awesome changes! All these minor changes to the UI/UX really makes the game less frustrating and more enjoyable. Keep up the good work! Can you guys work on the voting and unlock/lock BPO's interface next ?-)

You got me to go through the hassle of logging in and switching to my main to post...that says a lot right there. I think I want to post often, but when faced with the login screen, give up on it.

Team BFF, thank you. These little lists of updates mean more to this bitter veteran than anything you've released since Apocrypha.

When will more info on the anom changes be released? That's one of the few parts of the dominion sov system that actually works well and makes normally "lousy" space somewhat worthwhile...will these changes make vast tracts of 0.0 revert to being useless wasteland, or will they primarily focus on incentivizing ownership of the better truesec space (ie will it be the carrot or the stick?)
