The idea I want to present here is something I always wanted EVE to have. A destination shortcuts, as can be seen on the picture linked below:Linkage
I will not be making an essay about it. I think everything is clear in here.
But if you like to read here is some:
The idea is to enchance/replace the current waypoint system and make the use of autopilot function more friendly. Atm we have to access the map to set the destination - something which takes time (especially for traders that travel a lot), uses servers (most horrible thing is when one forgets to switch 'stars colors' sorting by sovereingty back to something else) and some may get confused by the amount of colourful lines when setting waypoints.
As seen on the picture a new menu appears on the UI. Shortcuts :P
Once expanded there are some options and bookmarked systems. This thing requires only 2 clicks (expand the menu + click on the system name) to set a destination.
One may right click on the system and choose the option (set destination) if he wants to but its designed to be fast in use - so only one left-button click on the specific system is enough.
Of course the idea may be expanded so that one may place systems into folders (one folder for every region for 0.0 dwellers, folders buy systems sell systems warzone etc for traders). One could also add a visible comment to a system (like ninjas in Dodixie, or pos locations)...
The only thing that bothers me is why this crap is not in game already? :D
