Make the Eve Map open in its own floating window.
Instead of taking over your whole client's screen the map would now load in its own resizable and moveable window.
This window would also be able to be minimized.
This feature would need to be able to be toggled on or off.

You could move the map around resizing it at will, while still being able to see/ do other important stuff™
ie. You could look at the eve map and spin your ship simultaneously

Programming and work may be required. Very Happy

While there are many cool things you could do with the Eve Map, this proposal is not for discussion on what this menu would look like, what controls it would have nor any new features it could have and is intended to see how much interest there is in a windowed eve map. If there is another post on this I couldn't find it, sorry.
This idea was brought up by Helicity on SHC and has been discussed internally with the CSM.

At the very least, it would be a nice optional feature.

As we've discussed, this is a great idea! Should also be able to be minimized like any other floating window.

Preferably remember the window size/location.

generally i only ever use the map window for probing in which case i want as much space as possible.

but i imagine id use it more for other things if i could get it smaller

Hard to believe a post by T'amber could ever be anything other than spam.

as long as you could move the now resizable map to another screen as well I will support this.

I want my main screen to have my ship, overview, HUD and my secondary screen to have the map. That would be real nice.

Its a nice change for those with more than 1 monitor :)

Only acceptable if it is optional, as having the solar system map open is the only real option of reducing the resource usage of the client.

Good idea.

A nice one. This could be expanded so that you can, say, track movements while still taking part of an encounter. Would be an invaluable military asset.

(so ability to open 2 or more windows with map
