Because the new ones are horrible.

New ones look like flakes of fish food. If I was CCP I would be embarrassed to have released these into the game. :excellence: indeed.

Yes, please. The old ones were a lot easier to identify at a glance.

All I can say is I'm really not a fan of the new turret icons. They just look like blobs and it is extremely difficult to distinguish between different turret modules on my ship....

Icons are supposed to be distinctive enough to recognise at a glance, and easily distinguisable when they are next to each other.

That is what we used to have.

Now we have tiny detailed pictures. They are NOT easy to workout whech is which at a glance, and completely fail in the function that they are supposed to do.

SUPPORTED.

Support. Old icons were very distinguishable.

Other icons continue to have "iconic" form - turrets should stay the same - Icons are used to make them distinguishable, which currently isn't the case.

this are two examples on how impossible is it to read the new icons.

And plz ccp, do not waste time fixing this, just bring back the old ones, 5mnts change in the DB and move on into the next issue. no need to spend weeks of several-man work in this ...

Sometimes the cartoonic icons are better than something trying to look 'real'.

Agreed....not a single non-support.

CCP please listen to us and fix this ASAP. If old players don't like it, then it IS also confusing to new players as well.

Not only that...but your icons are something that every player in the game looks at every day they play. Please make this a priority and roll out the fix in a small patch. We want our old icons back please.

Supporting this. Recently returned to eve and pretty much my first reaction was "what the heck have they done to icons?"

They're supposed to easily recognizable icons, not a detailed picture of the module in question resized to 64*64 px.

Bring back old icons!

What about: Remove all icons and replace them with a simple black button. Rolling Eyes

In a few months a rookie will probably ask: "What cool stuff did they introduce with Incarna!"
And he will be answered: "Cool animations for turrets and.... uhm.... a useless NeX-store and one room to walk around and get bored."
He will ask: "But what about gameplay?"
He will be answered: "Well, a lot of new... bugs, glitches, undistinguishable icons, functionality of hangar was removed, scanning was screwed up, fitting manager was screwed up, server database got screwed up."
Rookie: "So CCP invests a lot of money to screw things up...?"

Supported.

It's possible that I'm just not used to them, yet, but the new icons aren't as easily distinguishable from each other.

Pretty much this. Does CCP even have any QA whatsoever?

Give us actual icons, not blurry images.

Honestly the turret icons are the last thing I am really concerned about in EvE. Wouldn't hurt to just have the old ones back until they can make ones that don't look like microwaved turds though.
