Hello and thanks for looking, i have a new idea for the game. For many players in the game that salvage in a noctis its a slow and time consuming task, in my noctis i have 4 tractor beams and 4 salvagers. To get one wreck i need to click on the target, then click on the tractor beam wait till its at -5k then salvage it, then retarget the can and then empty said can.

ok my idea is a two parter

(auto target wrecks)

ie, like auto targeting system 1 for hi slot. (Targets any hostile ship within range on activation. Grants a +2 bonus to ship's max targets when online)

(cycle target shortcut key)

Im forever having to move the mouse from the top to the bottom of the screen just to select the next target. I'd like a shortcut key to cycle to the next target saving time.

In this game i have come to the conclusion time is money/isk and i emailed eve online regarding the cycle target idea and i have been told if there is enough backing from all of you this idea will be added to the next update.

I hope im not the only one that thinks this is two things that the game is missing and look forward to hearing your thoughts on this

Thanks for looking

Auto-targeting, as long as it's a module (preferrably high slot), okay.

Cycling between locked targets, or even shortcuts to highlight a particular one (say, ctrl+numbers)? HELL YEAH.

Not a bad idea, loss of a high slot makes it a choice...and less clicking is good.

Don't think CCP wants to speed up salvaging though, especially after the noctis.
But! CCP really needs to make it more intresting!
CTRL-Click Target.
Click the target you want(since you have many targeted) tractor..
Do a bunch for other wrecks..
Click salavage..repeat...
So much attention required for such a boring task.

Just FYI, there's already a mechanic in the game for cycling between targets. I can hit G1 or G3 (on my G510 keyboard, or Alt+Left and Alt+Right) and cycle left and right through the locked targets. I think it's called "Next Target" and "Previous Target" or some such in the settings. Hopefully that'll help you out atleast a bit.

Edit for spelling.
