We can already see bookmarks in space if we open the map, however we cannot see the location of bookmarks that are on the same grid. Adding this would be a useful feature for scouts / locals / warpins / rotating fleets etc.

Good idea.

And being able to align to bookmarks wouldn't be a bad idea either.

This issue has already been proposed to CSM:

http://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/Allign_to_Bookmarks_%28CSM%29

It was extensively discussed in this thread:

http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=1272442

For the record, I personally like it, but do note that it is going to buff certain tactics -- for example, it is serious stealth-bomber love.

Assembly Hall -> [PROPOSAL] Make on-grid bookmarks visible in space.

yes yes yes, not just on grid though, make them visible on the overview like celestials, and include mission bookmarks.

* You'll be able to use bookmarks on a battlefield to let you warp around grid strategicly.
* You'll be able to select a BM and spam the warp to button as your ships structure drops towards 0
* My 5 year old daughter won't spend 5 minutes of frustrating right clicking and attempting to select an option hidden multiple levels inside a cascading context menu.

See it benefits everyone.

I think I supported one of the older purposals on this, but on thinking about it, it might cause some problems.

Currently, bookmarks are stored on the EVE servers, not on your local client foulder. The calls for bookmark locations would therefore all occur on the EVE cluster itself, not on the local client (then being sent to the cluster)

Pile a bajillion bookmarks on top of a gate or something with the same number of people sitting on the gate and you'd have a serious crap-ton of exploitable lag (like bubbles...only invisible Shocked)

If CCP can code it so that the calls for the Bookmark locations don't really bog down the clients/nodes during other activities (pvp, pve, station spinning while looking at p.r0nz), then the ability to see BM's on the overview would be great.

they are cached on the client.

+1 of course.

You would obviously only see (and get from the server) your own bookmarks. So if you make ten bilions of them around a gate for whatever ******ed reason, you only lag yourself to death.

I play EVE on 3 different computers. The only thing that gets saved client-side is all the foulders I use for BMs, the BM's themselves get transfered between the clients.

So either they're on the server somewhere or magic internet-spaceship-faries are somehow transfering them for me :P

of course they are stored on the server, but also cached on the client.

Thinking more about it ... it might be they are purely server side, as otherwise people might abuse them to manipulate them on the client to make deep safes without warping around.

so yes performance might be an issue.

Lets do it! I've been wanting this for a while.
Oh and in case not mentioned somewhere, I wanted it for overview. I don't get the "grid" thing other than being somewhere on screen? I probably won't check back here though as I already said I support it and it looks like it doesn't need much checking on. :P

Yes, please. And let the CCP care abput performance,and get back to us when if they can do it, nbody here knows exactly how eve worcks, only CPP knows exact inner-workings (sometimes i doubt even that)

Supported if server strain is not an issue. Otherwise I expect bookmark spamming to become a staple grieifing tacticRazz

You'd only see your own bookmarks, so you'd only be able to grief yourself.
