Hey there!

Ive been studying some transcripts from new live devblog and camed up with some ideas how to tweak the usabilty of "target locking" icons :)

Well then - this is the current one:
Tis sux :P

A pilot has to move his mouse to much and it obscures much of the action that is going on on the screen :)

Now look at that:
Combined with overview

--> Useful mostly for drone commanders (with drone shortcuts it blows) and miners - allows for a most clear look on what is targetted and how near you, how fast it moves, where and if it is using any ewar on you - but still requires a bit of mouse moving :)

And another, my favourite:
Just above modules

--> Good place for gunners and ewar users :) This way one can manipulate guns over targets much more precise and faster without sweating :)

And both ideas grants us more space on the screen :)
Both ideas have advantages and disadvantages - first is more clear imo, but second is easier to manage. If one should consider using my idea perhaps she/he could consider making those two options switchable (original/overview/modules/both overwiew and modules).

Hope you enjoyed the pics!!! Comments are welcome... I am accepting isks and ships :P mihihihi :D

You know you can move the target list, right?

I like the combined with the overview idea, would look better if it was actually in the overview tho

Yes, actually Wink

I like the combined with overview one, makes it a damned site easier to see which are targetted. Although perhaps do it in such a way as the health bars for the drones?

I like the targets combined with the overview.

If not being able to see all targeted ships at the same time is an issue, then having an option to always keep targeted ships at the top of the overview would solve it.

Locks combined with overview are very good.
Just a note that you may lock people who are not on the overview, where to put them then?

If it was combined with the overview what happens if your filters dont show that target?

Would have to be an optional extra along with the seperate target icons.

The ability to not have big lines all across the screen and have a nice tiny window to select targets would be really nice.

I also like the targets combined with the overview.
