I hope this is all work in progress... because:

A) I want the 'menu' neocom at the TOP of my screen. Or maybe I want it VERTICAL. Please, if you say customization, then please let us choose where we want to place the menu bar. Shouldn't be that difficult!

B) Why a neocom only? Why can't we place buttons on any place we want on the screen? If you rework the UI then don't get halfway stuck but go the full way!

C) Let us save/load layouts and if you really want to be cool, then make them in-game items! Also make them available to share in the corp/alliance. When you can do it with ship-layouts you can do it with UI-layouts as well.

D) Good that the UI gets love! Yay!


I second this, most of all A) I want to be able to put my neocomm at the top of the screen or the sides again not the bottom.

1. Can you make the neocom vertical?
2. Can you make the neocom go on top of the screen when horizontal?
3. Can you make the neocom go left or right of the screen if vertical is possible?
3. Do I get free cookies with the neo neocom?

remeber the old running joke that the EVE UI was windows 3.1?

Well we just upgraded to windows 7.

I'm all for the changes, but the UI itself is bleh

Will it be "skinnable"?

Please give us customize options.

While you're on the UI, please separate the autopilot controls from the map.

Loading the map everytime you want to adjust autopilot settings or destination order is a waste of time and server resources.

Would be nice if you could customise the whole UI with colours and pictures. I'd quite like the ability to create "themes" like with the OS, seeing as you guys are doing the UI already might be cool to look at some things like this :D

Wow... why... thank you for putting *ANOTHER* popup along the bottom of my screen. So now whenever I want to access the taskbar I'll get a waterfall of cascading windows.

And since Win7 insists on shoving the bottom of the client window below the lower edge of my screen this is going to make navigating the neocom ever so convenient.

I can only echo the "must be possible to make vertical" sentiment.

No wait. Let me rephrase that.

MUST be possible to make vertical.

Yes, you've hinted at it as a "post-beta" kind of feature, but really, I would say that vertical should rather be the prebeta placement, and if you want to make it horizontal after that, then knock yourselves out.

Other than that, nify! Like! Thumbed, and all that. More UI for the people!

This is a change toward the right direction, however I feel that NeoCom is one of the lesser problem of the current UI nightmare. I hope this change means that more UI updates are heading our way.

The only thing I want is to not be forced to change stuff I'm happy with.

PLEASE DON'T DO A MICROSOFT AND SAY "This is now how it is, get used to it *****es.".

Leave the "old" UI as an option for f's sake. Mad

Nice initiative. Looks good.

A feature I would kill for is the ability to undock the separate windows from the F11-menu. Being able to get that quick overview of where I'm scanning as I barrel through a system without having the universe, region and constellation window taking up precious space would be sweet.

Also, spending alot of time zoomed out real far means it can be tricky to keep track of where your ship is. It would be awesome to change the Alt key to toggle self bracket on and off instead of the way it works right now.

Looks quite nice, and is definitely a very welcome step in the right direction. I do have two suggestions:

  1. Quote:
    The old "minimized window buttons" functionality is replaced by displaying icons of all open windows in the NeoCom. Windows of same type (multiple "show info" windows for example) are grouped together into a single button.

    Please don't force minimized window button stacking on us. It's nice for folk with limited screen space, who are playing on an 800x600 monitor from 1995 or something. It's worthless for anyone with a decent screen, and makes it a complete pain to quickly switch between multiple windows of the same type. I like being able to quickly swap between minimized windows. If anything, I'd rather be able to open multiple 'show info' windows and keep them minimized as separate buttons. At the very least, add an option to disable minimized window button stacking for those who don't want it.


  2. Also, I know this blog post concerns the NeoCom, but is there any chance we will see variable-size fonts in the foreseeable future? This is a horse that's been beaten to death very long ago, but there's a good reason for why players keep asking for being able to change font sizes in the UI year after year.

I like the current one better... lol. I admit it could be improved upon, but I don't like this new one. It just looks like EVE is trying to be Windows. When I first glaced at the post I was like "ENGINE TRAILS" and then got all sad. I've never played EVE with engine trails but they look so pretty :(

Should just add an FLV player so YouTube and similar sites work and I'll be happy. (Note I didn't say add flash, I said add an FLV player, there is a [big] difference)

This is ******ed. The NeoCom is fine the way it is, everything you need there is only a click or 2 away. Making it into a docking bar a la Mac's OSX is not an improvement.

I'm in the "UI Needs Improvement" camp, but this ain't it.

Is it at all possible to allow some active elements to the "Taskbar" of it, which we can customize either through tons of predefined stats or shiny numbers, or even allow us basic scripting to create our own UI Elements with a kind of API usage or something of the sort? Such as allowing us to script in a progress bar of our current Industrial processes, or skills in training, or whatever our minds can create to display the information we want in the way we want?

Also for the love of god please give us a squared-off condensed version of the ships status and weapons/modules thingie it drives me insane not being able to comfortably fit that UI Element into a corner :(

Credit where it's due; this looks really good and will probably help attract and retain players. Kudos.

While you're at it -- any progress on improving the overheating interface? It's awful.

Will the new NeoCom interface be accompanied by shortcuts for relevant actions that can now be added to the menu bar?

Changing autopilot settings without entering the map is a prime example of hiding UI behind tabs that you need to address. The kill mail screen is another one that needs its own button. I wouldn't mind being able to jump directly to current wars.

Engine trails shore are purty. :D

Please make it an option to have the NeoCom on the left still. I dread the thought of trying to click it without over-shooting to the task bar.

In fact. Make the left the default and the bottom an option. Seriously.

Otherwise; looks good! :)
