This would be a really useful UI enhancement.

The only caveat I'd add would be that if someone assists AND aggros you, they should still be redboxed.


Alternate red/green flash would be the simplest solution, surely?.

holy **** sticks **** faced monkey ****ers

this would be the best!

if they implemented this along with a FW RR fix... well people might start thinking they supported their in-game features instead of thinking up new ones to poorly implement Laughing

Stop it with the red + green crap please. I like being able to see when people are shooting me.

If this goes through, I will not be able to see that, since red and green on the Eve Overview are the same color to me.

I like the idea, but would strongly prefer the method to visualize this be something other than color, otherwise its another piece of the Eve UI I can't use very well (much like the map and heat management part of the ui)

The last thing this game needs is more freaking color coding.

But hey who cares about color blind people amrite? Rolling Eyes

That could work... if the right shade is chosen.

I would really prefer they move away from color coding the UI at all, but that would be a decent enough compromise since I know a redesigned UI with colorblindness in mind will never freaking happen.

There are a ton of different type of colorblindness red/green is the most common followed by blue/black... but really if you want to use colors in a UI you really need a good system of creating contrast so that colorblind peeps can use it too.

The current Eve UI is complete **** at this, and considering the lack of concern I got at the UI panel and at the Dev QA regarding this, I don't see it changing anytime soon.

So really judging that the CSM sees this as a good idea I think it'll get through, and it'll just be one more kick in the **** for me.

And yes I like the idea, but would rather another indicator was used other than color... maybe an icon or something.

Just stop making the UI WORSE for me, I mean first wide screen goes away, then that stupid autopilot change now this ****. Its really, really frustrating.

Also if any of the CSMs want help understanding what I'm talking about, I would be more than happy to answer any questions they have.

Having proposed the addition of the standings icon to locked targets, this is another logical UI improvement to aid in differentiating friend from enemy I'll support.

Ps.: a general solution for color blind people should be looked into independently. Something like configurable colors or flashing cadences, marquee types, etc. For instance, if you have a red-green deficiency, you could switch to yellow- blue coding.

Why don't they allow the players to customize the color they want depending on the action?

Good idea of course, if color blindness is really a concern there's a simple solution that could probally be applied to other things as well...

... change the bracket shape, in the case of 'assisting you' I think a simple green '+' would be fitting. I don't really think 'hybrid' brackets for helping and harming simultaneously really need to be taken into consideration.

I think,

before any overview enhancements are made, the entire overview settings window and layout need a revamp, its really hard to get to grips with, when I first started playing I struggled to get it to not show friendlies, not show people with certian standings as RED all the time and collumns/tabs, rows. It needs an 'ESC' menu for itself, as in EVE the overview is them main interaction item/window you play with.

Having choices for:

- Colour of certian projected effects (such as mentioned here; locking, agression, helping)
(so you can then manually set different things to your CHOSEN colour)
- Shape of certian projected effects icons
(an array of different shapes and sizes, for each class ship and such)

But the way it is now, the settings window is just a little too fiddly to add more into it.

But supported non the less!!!
(and red, agression colour of choice, should ALWAYS override the friendly colour, as this could lead to many n00b ganking exploits...... just saying :P)
