I'm trying to think of a nice way of organising information on my screen.
This is how I've done it at the moment. The fleet and drones go beside the overview to the left.

edit: forgot my screenshot!

If you would mind posting your screens for everyone to check out, that would be great.
Thanks! :)

I found the way the guy in the Arachnophobia vid set up his overview to be pretty useful and aesthetically pleasing too.

Take a look

Your corporation and alliance bars are a little wide.

But yeah, I use a similar setup, when it's not buried under chat windows.

Oh, just a quick MSpaint from another thread I had posted in asking about "where is your local channel?"

So I just recycled the image for use in this thread.

Resolutions higher than 1024 768 make my eyes bleed. Otherwise a clean and simple setup.

I shuffle things around a lot, but this is what I've settled on for the moment. ^^;

The window for drones and the watch list appear in the top right when they're available.

StarScream Xion love your overview. I may try that for pvp see if it makes things less convoluted.

How is it that a 1600 x 1200 screen I use seems to have less room than the squat little "wide screens" (seems to me they should be called short screens not wide screens.. they're missing the bottom third).

I'd think I'd be getting the extra down below but it seems like mine is thinner. My overview takes up a third of the screen to get the same info some people have.

Here's how it looks for me, nice and clean with lots of open space to view the pretty station sized crokite roids in the WH's: http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/2833/20090908011828.jpg

Got everything I need right here. All my various chats (intel/fleets/alliance/corp/etc) and room to spare for drones/fleets/overview/whatever.

I solo alot in my pilgrim and this is the settings I use: Linkage I only have the channels that I speak in or need intel from blinky so I minimize the main chat window till it blinks and it pops up right above the drone window.

Here's mine:

My UI

Marko Riva
Posted - 2009.11.25 05:24:00 - [25]
 

This is what I use for my more 'active' characters, it's a 1600x1000 windowed resolution meaning I can cascade a few on my 1680x1050 screen. Less used or inactive clients (passive scouts or haulers) use a much lower resolution with limited options.

Scanner window is optional obviously, I tend to mostly fly on "instruments" and use the viewport to get an idea of the tactical situation, I play it like Homeworld, not a sim :)

My Interface

Sorry for black boxes. stuff that could or could not be sensitive so E errored on side of caution. One chat window is non-inportant chat, one is intel channel, and one is local.
