Anybody familiar with roaming gangs will be all too familiar with aligning. Having to double click as close to a celestial object as possible so you are up to speed and in the correct direction to instantly hit warp speed. There is even a broadcast assigned to this. So CCP recognizes the function. So why canít we have an alignment button under the selected items window. We have one for look at, orbits and keep a distance. So why not to align my ship at speed and therefore allowing perfect alignment without having to spin the camera around to find the dam stargate and then fiddle with the cursor.
CCP please save us agro by just putting in an ďalign my ship toĒ command.
(Guys if you want this in the game please speak up here)

I've never been quite sure why you can't just click 'approach' for distant objects to get going in the right direction.

This one has been brought up before, and is still a good idea.

Heartily supported. This comes to mind every time I'm in a roaming gang.

Dont you see? The additional 10KBs of coding that would require such a button would create generate an inter dimensional portal that would allow the Great Old Ones to return! Chaos would reign!

CCP knows this that is why they have Never included such a button for YEARS!!

Seriously, yes. I think I've started this thread three or four times, and I can't begin to count the number of times it's been posted. I think Oveur makes the other devs drink a shot every time this idea shows up in F&A.

Sounds good.

You should add this to Xaen's List of UI Improvements.

Oh joy \o/ people like what I have to say and I now feel like such a big man. Now to pick a fight with someone whoís much larger than me and realize once again that Iím not that big after all.

Hello Mr Zulupark I understand that your schedule is very busy juggling your time between. Nerfing minmatar speed tanking in response to your secret character in Bob getting poded by AAA for the 100th time (guys you can put your tinfoil hats on at that reference itís okay with me). And of course the old important task of nerfing cap ships by the backdoor as this does not require you to release a Dev blog (thank god!). But if you could consider this topic I would greatly appreciate it. You know---sort of remember to mention it at the next creative content meeting at CCP preferably before the beer takes hold that would be just great.

Absolutely no reason why this shouldn't be added.

"Align at minimum speed" and "Align at full speed" would be even nicer, 1% and 100% respectively.

And while you're at adding this also add a 'Align Fleet to...' command. That'd be so much more convenient when no one has to search the known space for that one stargate or whatever to align to.

Unlock the approach button : we need to align with it and also to be able to move to objects we see in the grid, flying an inty and not having approach and orbit button over 150km does not make it easier...

yes from my experience of FCing mobile gangs that would be so useful. But think about how useful that would be for goonswarm. as opposed to teaching 1000 noobs what to do. In fact if you take the idea far enough it could be like what the calculator has done for mental one knows S**T anymore they just follow the automated functions :)

I agree. An "align" and an "align fleet to" command would be very helpful. This is something I believe should have been implemented in the game a long time ago. Perhaps a "Jump Fleet" command would be a good idea as well. Thanks for reintroducing this issue to the public Tim. You're a modern day hero.

There should be an align button AND an align command dropdown menu/option when the "align to" fleet command is given. Giving a fleet command to auto align every ship might be over doing it. The next thing that will happen is that people will ask for a fleet button to jump everyone.
