Greetings and salutations fellow pod pilots! Because of CCP's recent urge to fix the small annoying bits EVE players are prone to dealing with, as well as Akita T's thread dedicated to such things, I wanted to throw some of my ideas I've been working on to the community. See what you think, and don't forget to flame away!

Regrettably, I can't actually post the pictures here as they would do something funky to the forum layout, and I would earn the wrath of the CCP gods.


Are you tired of sorting through possibly hundreds of different orders you may currently have? Well, no more! With the ability to sort and "tab" your orders under various categories, checking and updating your orders will be a breeze!

For those with a sharp eye, you can also SEARCH through your orders if you're looking to change one specifically! Hot dog!

Adding a new tab is also easy, as all you have to do is click that little "New Tab" button in the right-hand corner of the wallet, and a nice little window pops up for your convenience! Could not be easier!

How do you actually add an item/order to a Tab?

A good question indeed wise inquisitor! There are currently two avenues one may take to add an order to a particular tab.

Avenue 1: Orders already placed

A simple process. Since we learned while playing EVE that right-clicking practically everything is the #1 rule to follow, for this procedure as well. Simply right-click a particular order, as you usually would do when canceling or modifying it, and the usual context menu will appear but with a few extra choices. Very simple and easy to use.

Avenue 2: When placing new orders

To add a new order to a specific category, simply open up the Custom Sell Order window and Tabbing options are present. Another nifty thing not present in this window would be the ability to "save" items so they automatically go into a tab that you designate.

And that's it!

Thank you for reading and taking a look at my proposal. Hopefully CCP does the same!

I only looked at the picture and have to say, looks awesome!

currently I just sort by time left and go through and update every order. even though there are only a few really worth bothering with.

Posted - 2011.02.14 05:27:00 - [5]

oh god yes, it would make organizing portfolios infinitely easier.

Posted - 2011.02.14 05:37:00 - [6]

Let's start with positive:

1. Oh goodness yes, this looks great. I would love this.

2. This is the wrong forum. Features and Ideas is probably where this will get kicked to by mods.

3. Once you have feedback/ideas/refinement, please post this in the CSM ideas section using whatever guidelines and format they have there. Please, please do. Cool

I like it. Make sure we can multi select orders and drag and drop them on to tabs to move them and I would totally go for it.

I have so many orders it's not even funny. Anything to make updating all of them easier is a good thing. I want this now!

Nice; such small simple changes that would generally improve usability.

Awesome. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best ones.

I would never use such a feature but I can imagine how useful it would be to those that play the markets regularly.

Make it so Cool

I wish CCP would subscribe to your newsletter.

This is a good idea, but it needs two things.

If you have a tab in Orders named 'Modules', there there should also be a tab in Transactions named 'Modules' which contains the buying and selling resulting from the orders in the 'Modules' tab.

Also there needs to be some API changes, specifically to Market Transactions and Market Orders.

The Market Orders API is described Here. I see two ways to change it, One could either have the arguments take the name of a tab as an option and return only orders associated with that tab. Or all orders that are returned can have the name of a tab associated with them on output.

The Market Transactions API is described Here. Again, I see two ways to change it. Either an argument can be added so that one or a list of tabs may be requested. Or the market transactions that are returned can be labeled as belonging to a particular tab.

Nice shopping skills, to bad I cant match that as a painter, not really a graphics artist here.

Also what do you think about wallet divisions and how would you go about that interface?

Nice Idea +1

Maybe make it so that when a particular item/item type is bought/sold it appears in the selected tab.

One step closer to making a "shopping cart" feature for buying and selling stuff Very Happy

Posted - 2011.02.14 20:34:00 - [29]

Nice. I was going to do a mock up pretty much exactly like this until Liang Nuren got me distracted on a different UI...

Anyway, supported!

Two thumbs up.

And two big toes up too, they're kind of like thumbs.

If I had more limbs their respective digits would be in the upward position.
