With all the issue that UI has I though ti would be cool if CCP had a way to switch all your settings to something else.

The could also be called "load profile" or something like that.

But basically, if you click the button it will set up your screen to some pre set up state (like it minimizes and closes all market windows,move targets to top center, and drone bay window to right center location).


I could see further benefits for this some how with CCP being able to capitalize on real time fleets and fighting but just taking the number of "battle mode" activations in a system. If all of a sudden you see 50 of them activate, you know that system is going ot have a fight very soon, and you can PREDICT when a fight will happen, before it does (if only very briefly). Maybe they can even optimise large battles some what, by disabling market, if your in battle mode, or something else very clever.

you could expand this idea for "profile", and have for example
Trade profile,
Travel profile,
Mission profile,

ect...


it is kinda of like the overview tabs, except it effects all windows.

I like this idea. Maybe they can make buttons that do this when the new UI comes out. It might be hard to program though because it will have to account for different sized screens.

umm.. how about a klaxon that goes off when you push the button along with the fact that your shields are off unless you have the button pushed.

Well I think you missed the point here, I think what he wanted was to have the ability to SAVE a layout and then RECALL that layout quickly. So when he is doing market stuff and someone attacks he can just LOAD the preset for pvp, once he laid it out exactly as he wants it to appear it's not an issue.

I'd like a system of customisable tabs along the top of the screen, which switch between different hi setups, each with their own set of overview tabs.

I think you guys have the idea..

There is a fine line between "total" customization, and "convieance of use".

This is why I suggested the 1 button.... The idea/ comment about a number of "user profiles (this is they they are called in ACAD/survey software that does this same thing), certainly has merit as well.


simply the issue is that eve "looks " the same weather you are in station trading on the market, or in a 2000 person fleet battle. These are ENTIRELY different situations, and eve should be able to accommodate the differences in needs of these situation more gracefully.

I have been thinking about something like this for a while. when I am playing normally, I run in windowed mode. but when I go on a roam, I use full screen mode.
changing between those 2 messes up my screen layout horribly. so it does not need to be when you change like that, just a button for swapping window placement. save it like you save the overveiw. since the game saves the settings when you close the client, it's obvious that there is a setting that saves that, make it have multiple saves like that and add a function to swap between them.
