I have found few bugs but maybe it's me doing something wrong:

- angular velocity column in overview, my guns still miss all the time targets even if their tracking is much bigger than value in angular velocity column (like 0.0001 rad/s in column and 0.001 rad/s in gun tracking)
- corp members not visible on map when I choose "show corp members in space", I can see members only in current region
- private contracts not visible for contract target, I often buy something for my alt, so I create private contract with 0 ISK, I have to send link to contract to my alt because there is no way I can find it (there is an option but it shows: no contracts found)

Is it me doing something wrong or all of above are bugs and I should report them?

2nd point might be a bug, not sure.

I'm pretty sure 1st and 3rd is just (your) misunderstanding way they work:
- angular velocity shown in overview is not the same thing as angular velocity in guns tracking, because each ship can have different signature radius. You need to compare gun's sig radius to targets.
- On the alt, go to 2nd tab in contracts, and instead of station/system/entire region/other region select 'Me'. You won't find contracts you're looking for using 1st tab of contracts window - it's for something else.

Thank you. Contracts work as you said.

As for an angular velocity: I made some tests with shuttle orbiting Dominix at 1000m on full speed.

Distance: 1200m
Velocity: 628-632 m/s
Radial: 19 m/s
Tranversal: 637 m/s
Angular velocity: 0.0768928 rad/sec

All values are taken from overview.

First thing is why there is rad/sec as last unit and not rad/s? Is it a typo or "sec" is something different than second?

When you calculate angular velocity of this Shuttle you will get around 0.5253 radians per second (full circle in about 12s, full circle is 2*Pi radians).

What value is in "angular velocity" column than? It can't be something in relation to ship guns because ship can have different guns fit or no guns at all.

BTW column on/off state is NOT saved in overview group settings (those named as mining/standard). Is it a bug or feature?

I found it. "Angular velocity" column has angular velocity but with completely unnecessary division by 6.83 (which is 2*Pi). Looks like a bug for me.

Bug report it. I doubt anyone in CCP will ever discover this problem.

I did. Lets hope they will fix it in reasonable time. I was really excited when I saw this in overview settings.

So it's actually rotations per second not radians at the moment?

Column staying the same regarless of overview filter settings is a feature IMO - at least it's quite useful to me.

nope did not work, still can;t see contracts issued to me. was fine till the last patch
