I have been doing this overview for the past year (since overview settings export are allowed) for the Finfleet Corporation / IT Alliance, but I decided to make it public to the community, so feel free to download and use as you see fit:


The Overview is divided the following way:

  • PVE - M - HIGH

  • PVE - M - MEDIUM

  • PVE - M - LOW

  • PVE - M - ICE


Ratting (R):
Includes Ratting and hostiles, plex includes destructible turrets and structures

  • PVE - R - PLEX

  • PVE - R - BELTS


Drones (D):
Includes either all non-fighters or all fighters

  • PVP - D - ALL

  • PVP - D - FIGHT


Empire (E):
Will remove all neutrals, and set only @ war with targets

  • PVP - E - ALL


Friendly (F):
Will show only friendlies of the types specified

  • PVP - F - ALL

  • PVP - F - CAPITALS

  • PVP - F - BS

  • PVP - F - DICTORS

  • PVP - F - SUPPORT

  • PVP - F - H.SUPPORT

  • PVP - F - L.SUPPORT

  • PVP - F - LOGISTICS

  • PVP - H - ALL

  • PVP - H - CAPITALS

  • PVP - H - BS

  • PVP - H - BC

  • PVP - H - CRUISERS

  • PVP - H - H.SUPPORT

  • PVP - H - L.SUPPORT

  • PVP - H - LOGISTICS

  • PVP - H - NONE


POS (P):
Will show only player owned structures of the types specified

  • PVP - P - ALL

  • PVP - P - EW

  • PVP - P - EXTRAS

  • PVP - P - GUNS

  • PVP - P - RES


Wrecks (W):
this is still being worked on, I don't have it exactly as I need it

  • PVP - W - ALL

  • PVP - W - HOSTILES

  • PVP - W - NON-ALLIED


All overview settings also include:
Sun
Gates
Stations
Warp Gates
Wormholes
TCU
Cyno
Beacons



HOW TO INSTALL:
1. Download the latest version here
2. Unzip the file
3. Copy the file to your User -> Documents -> EVE -> Overview folder
4. If the "Overview" folder doesn't exist, create one: "Overview" (capital O)
5. In game go to Overview Settings on your overview window, and select the last option "Import Overview Settings"
6. Select the file you just copied and check all the "view options"
7. Press Import and voilá
8. Note: Every time you import a overview file, game will turn on "Show All Brackets" in all tabs, make sure you press the "Stop Showing all Brackets" when you select one of the new tabs (you only have to do this once per tab)



Upcomming views:
- PVP - POS - Scan (Moons + Control Towers Only)
- New category Type "Filter" to use as bracket view


I will keep this overview settings updated as much as I can. If you think this might make your life a bit easier, any donations will be appreciated, enjoy :)

I also liked the leaked overview settings which were found on the BoB forums.
Thank you for opening this up.

One suggestion, would it be a good idea to make some overview settings which work well as brackets only and some as regular overviews only.

For example is is sometimes useful to have drones on your brackets so you know who they are attacking, but having them in your overview would clutter things too much.
Same for things like asteroid belts and moons.

Another useful overview setting I found is one with forcefields, control towers, jumpbridges and moons only. It's useful when trying to scan down a POS quickly.

Thanks again.

I have the same problem, and I keep using the ALT+Z and ALT+X shortcuts to show my drones in space, without flooding my Overview Window. But the problem here is that you cannot set a bracket view for every single filter you got, only for the 5 tabs displayed, so until CCP fix this little problem I am not sure how I can fix this in a single overview file.

About the POS scan, that is a very good suggestion, will add a POS - Scan on my next update.
In the meanwhile I would suggest using what I do atm:

1 Tab : PVP - H - All (adding moons manually to it while scanning);
2 Tab : PVP - POS - All

Use the 1st Tab with moons to warp arround (as all my views show Control Towers by default), and the 2nd Tab to see the actual full setup of the POS.

I guess I was just suggesting making a few overview filters which are designed to be used as the filters for the brackets for each of the tabs.
Could tailor them to high/low lag environments etc.

Dark Blue for Alliance (star) and Positive Standing (plus)
Red for @ War (star) and Negative Standing (minus)
Orange for all Neutrals

Red Background for the Empire War Targets

Does anyone know how to import the overview settings on a mac??

Export them once and look where it place them.
Then place your own settings in the same folder and... import.

I'm guessing you're not actually on a Mac.Shocked

Exporting overview settings on my Mac, EVE tells me they're in P:\My Documents\EVE\Overview\export.test.xml

That, of course, is a Windows file path. There's no such place on my Mac. I suspect it's a pseudo directory somewhere inside the EVE application package, but I can't find it.Crying or Very sad

Well that is the correct place, you just need to know how to get to the P drive on the mac.
~/Library/Preferences/EVE Online Preferences/p_drive/

So, fullpath:
/Users/YOURLOGINNAME/Library/Preferences/EVE\ Online\ Preferences/p_drive/My\ Documents/EVE/Overview/

Red Background for the Empire War Targets



You can set these on priority order so:
war target (any) blinky red in ov
Red is obviously with red background.
Corp members are the usual green
Dark blue for alliance/ [+10] standings

For neural everything is neutral (so colors, backgrounds or anything just a name and a ship type). Wink
If NRDS by some twist of fate get revived I might have to redo the backgrounds for what they used to be.

Trust me, I can relate. I have sold so many characters through the years (fifty to sixty) that I can usually run across at least one a week.

Awesome stuff. I am using your overview on all chars now and never had any probs with it. Keep it up

PS: An overview for anomalies would be great.
