when camping a gate or station i usually have a few bookmarks around it (as do most ppl i think), however when a possible target is flying around the distance the bookmark is made i still have to guess if he/she is close to it and how far i should warp.

so i suggest showing your own bookmarks in space so you can see clearly if the target is close to it and how far of you have to warp to be able to snatch it.

I agree.

I'd probably do that some time, someday, but mostly it'll just be used against me. Guess I'll just have to HTFU. =]

i agree it gets to be quite aggravating RClicking then "scrolling" down to find your Bm

would be much simpler to have it in overview or an icon in space much like planets, AB's etc, and jump to it.

especialy in the heat of things. i have lost more ships due to Rclicking and trying to find which to warp to.

This was actually mentioned as done in one of the patch notes (Incursion 1.6 maybe?) but then got retracted. I wonder what's the status of this. It would certainly be very useful.

Miners would love this feature also, but in pvp I can see that it could bring unfair advantage to for example gate campers.

Some people could mine bookmarks around gate/station and be always be able to warp next to their target in seconds.

I support this feature but only if bookmars are visible inside 100km range and there is cap of 10 bookmarks what can be seen at once (this because someone could still mine 100 bookmarks around gates, share them with corpmates and have scout sitting in gate yelling to which bookmark rest should warp to).

So in short... great idea - easily abused.

mine bookmarks?

do you mean driving to all the conceivable spots around a gate and building a library of BMs so you can WT(a reasonable amount) to a WT position?

any fleet scout worth his salt already does this in their corp's sphere of influence. its a godsend to have an inty pilot who can say to their FC, "who do want primary? count to 10 and warp to me" and deliver the fleet to that primary because they have a BM close to that position

tl;dr - the BM mechanic already exists in-game... seeing the BMs on-grid would simply make it easier to use said BMs

Supported, as this would be a intuitive and helpful thing to implement across the board.
