So wait, does this mean that:

a) We won't be able to use "direct chat" (as until now) or "enter chat" (as in pretty much every other game), because Enter is a special key?

b) To warp to the already selected object, I still need to either mouse over and click the warp button, or click (focus overview) and click (warp)? Can't it just be assigned to a single key?

c) Will our current shortcut assignments be preserved?

Welcome to 2002...

Better (extremely) late than never. I will be personally abusing the **** out of those shortcuts.

Also, thank you for not putting everything into the chatbox anymore.

This will be very handy but as noted above will take a while to get used to.

Yeah, an unlock all/the selected target would be very useful. WTB shortcut.

Good and welcome improvements.

There is bad news...

To be able to do shortcuts properly, we saw no other option than discontinuing the current "set-chat-focus-on-any-key" functionality.


How is this bad news? It was annoying as hell at times and I'm glad it's gone.

In theory good.

In practice I can imagine a lot of people entering aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa into corp chat or fleet, because they were aligning to an object and then hit enter to jump to the chat - which of course, they were already in...

I'll keep my ctrl+D to deploy drones and stuff, ta. It isn't broke SO WHY FIX IT?

The devblog said that using the space bar (alone) would auto-focus the chat window. It may be a slight bit of re-training, but it shouldn't be that bad.

I've played games over the years that required a '/' for chat functions (yeah, I'm old school) so it's not really that uncommon.

And in most muds you need to input ' beofre you say something. Doesn't make it right. And i see a difference between "type and its rolling" and "press space then type", do you ? Thats why i demand an option to turn auto-chat focus on/off.

Any chance we can get:
The ability to control click to lock on broadcasts
A shortcut that can be bound to lock last broadcast for armor/shield/cap?

can we hot-key switching targets? If so, it would complete almost every complaint I had with not having hot-key's for combat.

REALLY REALLY AWESOME

I just miss a shortcut to switch overview tabs (that would really be needed), and then I'm überhappy

Very Nice, but a couple of comments:

'Focus on chat window' should probably be 'Enter' by default if possible. Lots of people will already have that muscle memory from other MMOs (I know, not really a reason to do it here, but...)

Can we navigate the Overview using arrow keys? If so, targeting via keyboard is going to rock.

Can we get a 'lock' ONLY key? Having a toggle key is great and all, but I'm sure I'm going to accidentally unlock targets in the heat of my next fleet fight (throw in normal lag, etc).

So it came to pass that the macro devs prayed...

Behold! the gods have answered their prayers and delivered them customisable keyboard short-cuts,

so it came to pass, that the plebs stopped playing EVE and gave way to the glorious age of bot vs bot warfare.

Will take a little getting used to but I like.

Will we be able to assign our own modifiers as that could be quite cool, so rather than ctrl+click I could have extra_mouse_button+click for the ultimate in lazy one handed gaming?

Any chance of developer-supported shortcuts for the various Logitech G* series of keyboards? Having to set a shortcut and then mapping that shortcut to a G-key is kind of useless, after all.

I'm very glad to hear that people in general seem to be excited about the changes. Keep the feedback coming, especially when it comes to actions that are currently not possible to bind shortcuts to.
