IMHO CCP needs to overhaul the entire UI to something that is readable [main thing in combat] and ´looks good, maybe even customizable. One of my main gripes with eve is that it´s that the UI already felt dated in the beginning, even to the point of feeling cartony compared to the massive space theatres and general spreadsheetness of the rest of the game.


A game that is built around a lot of information dripping by should take this into account, oh and maybe get with the times to compete with next gen mmorpgs. (lol)

While you´re at it reahaul the module activating sound as well. Custom sound for each race/ships/modules etc. Hell why not make the UI variable with the ship?

Make a real UI ship computer, **** away local chatbox update the shipscanner/directional to a real hud.



they "got with the times" by dropping classic client. how well that worked for them costing them 2 years of subscriptions from me, as I don't pay for what I cant play. Every time they make a business decision, its about "not cost effective" when in reality its about "put in more pretty lights that bring in WoW kiddies because its so stimulating to immaure minds and we need to farm that user base and sod good gameplay and fixing anything thats broken, you know, actually caring for customers and stuff". the latter is their motto.


gameplay > graphics any day. any one who says " I play this game for the pretty!!" is a 12 year old. and I have seen people comment like that. so guess why CCP when that direction instead of fleshing out the game. guess why they say "free expansions!" to draw the underage crowd with little money. Guess why they keep putting in different crap such as PI to distract us all from the CORE GAME MECHANICS THAT ARE STILL BROKEN.

Nah believe me gameplay is enhanced by a good UI and it doesnt have to = pretty graphics f0r the w0w kids. I was thinking along the lines of something like those planetary readouts in the new flash blurb for Taranis. Slick and fast and USEful to get away from the Spreadsheetness. Never wonder why eve feels like work? The boxes that fills the screen, it' s getting old fast. Get away from that. Bring back Widescreen and make EvE more friendly for colourblind people.

It's deffo time for an overhaul. You can always argue about resource allocation and business decisions as well as making 0.2 isk analyses about their game, but this is a valid point that goes beyound aesthetics.
