I'm new to EVE and was amazed there was no option to invert the mouse wheel in a game as matured as this one. The way it works now is simply counter-intuitive to me. I've searched for a way to reverse it, but there seems to be no other way than using profiles in your mouse drivers. Most of the responses I've found on this were along the lines "No, it's right the way it is. You're stupid." and other unhelpful stuff like that.

There's no point in arguing which is "right" or not here I feel. That's beside the point. Many people probably don't care, or feel it's right the way it is, or are happy to adapt. I've played a lot of games and to me it's backwards. I don't want to adapt to the UI. I shouldn't have to. If you can just accept I want it to be the other way I'll gladly accept you like it the way it is. Let's just agree to disagree. :)

So...

I'm proposing an option is implemented in the game settings to simply inverse the mouse wheel. That's it. It doesn't have to be enabled by default or anything like that, but puleeze let me change it.

I can't imagine it would be hard to implement. Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I should add that this is only intended for zooming in and out. Not for scrolling up and down in windows (obviously). :)

Sometimes the simple ideas are the good ones. I like it how it is. however I support this 100%.

+1 EVE's mousewheel is exactly opposite most MMOs.

Well, a mousewheel is pretty much "exactly opposite" or exactly the same as another mousewheel. Really no middle ground there...

I support any idea to help the new guys get the coolness out of this game. +1 OH, and salvage drones.

Still, it would be cool to be able to reverse it on the options Very Happy

Oh I don't know. They could have used that tilt/sideways scroll that higher-end mice have these days instead… That's quite literally a middle ground.

I'm all for this. After being around games since BASIC days, it is a simple fix and should be included in such a great game. Most of the other games and program has the option but the default is reversed to EVE.

For those that mentioned solidworks, and such, my company uses that and autodesk and various programs out that that mix and match. My engineers all changed it to the opposite of EVE's way since that's how they learned it in school. (Solidworks = options > view > reverse mouse wheel zoom direction)

Just because we drive on one side of the road and others drive on the opposite side, doesn't mean either one is right or wrong or better.
