Good idea.
To cut down on overview clutter, only show vectors for selected target/ object instead of everything on a grid, or have it as an option in settings to show vectors for all locked targets + a selected object regardless of weather or not it is locked.

Possibly a max limit of 15 simultaneous vectors to prevent some shenanigans with automatic targeting systems.

Thanks for your support.
I disagree with the 'locked only' or 'selected only' filters because small gangs means quick action, you have seconds to react if a tackler comes for you, you don't want to miss it because you hadn't selected it. Clutter should be reduced enough using the overview rules to show/hide the vectors. It could however be added as an additional overview rule, so you have the option but you don't have to use it.

About the limit, consider that after all each ship drawn on screen is already quite a number of lines (and textures), it doesn't seem reasonable to me that one more vector per ship may slow down the client. What shenanigans are you thinking about?

Definitely a good idea. And please leave the movement indicators visible for all of the ships in the tactical overlay, especially in fleet battles it would help to track the movements of the squads in relation to you and each other.

Perhaps the tactical overlay could be made configurable in regards what elements are shown for all ships/the selected ship or not at all?

Wouldn't you just use the same control that you use to select things that appear on the overview (including coloring)? so a red flashy battleship is a 3 pixel red flashy line on the overview and a corp member frig is a one pixel green line (or whatever)

M8 that makes so much sense that I have edited my proposal changing the segment from white to the same overview top category. Thanks!
