Drones and their hud need A LOT of things to be changed, but at least 2 are needed asap:

1. see drones status when they are docked in the ship.
2. let us create and manage groups while docked

Thank you.

I think you've just highlighted the two most annoying things about drones.

Both of these would make life much easier.

How about a drone repair module?

Mid slot item, repairs a light drone from smoking ruin to combat worthy status in, say, 20-30 seconds. 2 minutes for a medium, 5 for a large/sentry or fighter. Low slot version does the same, but half as quickly. They will work in conjunction, if you really want to gimp your ship that much.

It won't instantly recharge shields, but it'll give those poor droneboats an option when they're working 12 jumps from a dock in the crap end of 0.0

There is already a high slot item for that. It doesn't have the arbitrary time frames either. /signed on OP though.

ANOTHER THINGS THAT DRONES NEED ASAP


Yes, it had to be caps'ed.

Anyway, theres a hotkey for drones to engage, and return to bay and also orbit.

Why isn't there a hotkey for launch drones? And we should be allowed to create a hotkey to launch each drone group we create.

Jesus Christ! YESSSS!!!!!

Also,
Number drones in flight already: Warrior 1
Warrior 2
Warrior 3
Praetor 4
Ogre II 5,6,7,8
Firbolg 9,10,11

Can you say Tactical Management boost for gameplay?

Also, ships need enough bay to carry replacement drones or a 2nd flight of EWAR drones. Racial Bayspace for Gallente beyond that?

Also, EWAR drones need boosting.

Also, Fitting Screen and Tactical Overview need Drone Control Range for the Ship and Drone Optimal for each drone displayed, in space AND Dock...somewhere.

Also a small symbol to tell the current Stance of your drones, like Passive/Aggressive /+ Follow in Warp. Without using those annoying microscopic triangles...

Also, Remove those words in the Drone Control UI.
-Firing = Red Crosshairs.
-Guarding = Red Shield
-Warping/Following = Blue Arrow/Red Arrow
-Mining = Drill
-Remote Rep = Blue/Green Shield
-Assisting = Green Crosshairs
-Idle/Return-orbit/Returning to Bay = Yellow Shield/Yellow Orbit/Yellow Dock

When you hover over the target and look at Drone group, these icons also show.

If Drones are doing the same task to the same target, shift them AS A GROUP to the top of your list of in-space drones.The number tags also update.

Replace name of Drone with ShowInfo thumbnail pic of drones?
Ogre II 3 has <Pic of ogre2> 3 <pic of Red Shield>

When Drones complete a task, a small double beep should go off alerting Pilot...that's intelligent feedback drone AI in my EVE??!?

Making this easier for you. Hope to see ingame...SoonTM...YARRRR!!

Nothing that gives a major shift in the balance of a battle, so there should be no reason not to. Thumbs up.
