This feature would be so useful. You could fit multiple weapons at once, put multiple weapons offline at once, and load ammunitiion into multiple weapons at once without having to leave the station to group them. It would save alot of time. The ability to do that at the fitting screen is a must.

On a related note, can you make th capaitor requirements for putting a module online change depending on the size of the capacitor and also depending on the Powergrid and Capacitor requirements of the moduel itself? Say you have a multi-thousand GJ Capacitor, and you want to put a Gatling Pulse Laser online, you still need 95% Capacitor to do it. Or say you are trying to put a Nanofiber Internal Structure online, or even a civilian afterburner. Each module should have a simple Min Cap Energy requirement for being put online, instead of a min Cap Percentage requirement.

  1. Put all your guns in the slots.

  2. Hold shift and drag one weapon to another to make a group.

  3. Continue this until all the weapons are in the same group.

  4. Loading ammo to one gun loads them all.

  5. .......

  6. Profit.

I never knew about that.

But you can at least support one of the ideas. And by grouping weapons in the fitting panel, I mean using a button to manually group weapons.

How about my idea of improving upon the current system for putting modules online?

Alsom the ability to group weapons with different ammunition types. I could have a pair of medium beam lasers with Long Range Frequency Crystals, and a pair with High Damage Frequency Crystals in the same group. That would grant me the ability to hit a target from a long range, and gradually increase my damage output as they get closer without having to activate another group.

And something even better would be the ability to group more than just weapons. For example: Repair Systems, Logistic Tools, Sensor Systems, Shield Boosters, Cap Boosters, Defensive Hardeners, Strip Miners, Scan Probes, etc.

Oh god, it's like you don't even play Eve Online: A Bad Game.

Er why no - its a complete faf and arse.

You should be able to select multiple weapons, drag them on the fitting pane in one go and they group themselves. Similarly unfitting a grouped gun should unfit the entire group not produce the irritating poppup. And a button that says 'group similar weapons' would in fact be rather helpful.

No one uses guns ungrouped do they? (except noobs who always think that they should have one for each range).
