My suggestion is pretty simple. Next to the icons representing your highslots, have another icon you can right-click on to swap ammo out on ALL your guns at once. Lets assume, for example, that you are flying a turret ship with 8 turret points. If you need to swap out ammo, it is a pain in the arse to right-click, change ammo type on all 8 turrets. I've become quite efficient at it, and I'm still wasting 8-9 seconds swapping out ammo. This isn't such a huge deal in PvE, but in a PvP situation that is an eternity. If you had one button you could click on (the same as the 'overheat rack' button), you could save quite a bit of time. Whether this is a good thing or not, I don't know.

Discuss, /Sign, flame, make a suggestion of your own, whatever.

Of course for Missile Launchers too Smile I was merely using a turret ship as an example.

Not sure I want even more bloody icons. Just sticking it somewhere in the right-click menu of a turret/launcher would work well enough I think.

Much like the "Reload all" item, but with a sub-menu to select ammo type.

That's details though, the general idea of being able to switch ammo in all weapons at once gets a resounding


from me.
