It would be nice if you could add a short note to your ship, visible when you hover your mouse over it in the hangar. The notes could be a quick reminder of how the ship is fitted, IE: AC's 14km or something along those lines. For those people who have many ships, especially many of the same ship but fit for different task, this could be a time saver.

You can right click show contents for a quick overview of how the ship is fit now.

Yeah, I know, but right clicking doesn't tell you what range you have your ship set for etc, I'm not talking about writing a book, just a short reminder.

Are you still learning the weapons? Youll memorize all your weapon catagories and basic ranges with or w/o ammo soon. As for writing a description - I wont dog your idea, I just dont see a need for it for myself personally. I usually name my ships after things that reminds me what I use the ship for such as: porkyp (ham drake with point), blower (blaster moa, commonly referred to as bloa), gave (Gank rAVEn, setup with torps and buffer), pariah queen (solo harpy), best friends queen (fleet fit harpy), china robin (plated black bird - china = plate and robin = bird), jesussaidso (dcii/bhii orca).

But yeah, i suppose a 'description/bio page' thats stored locally on your computer shouldnt be a big issue to include.

I see no problem with this idea, for those that might use it its potentially quite useful, and for those disdainful of it it interferes with them not at all...

+1 to this.

Exactly, especially if its stored locally it wont even have an effect on the server. Shouldnt be an issue saving locally unless u switch computers often.

I have tons of ships I've collected and I do know my weapons and ammo, it's not a big deal, just thought a note that pops up when you hover makes it a little easier than a click fest. Lol, I sound like george jetson, whining about pushing buttons, but I'm lazy.

Why don't you just rename your ship from "Woodman2's Hurricane" to "Shield 14km AC wd2"

So everyone looking at your ship can tell exactly how you have fitted it?
Plus I can think of more useful notes than that you could put on your ships.
Also for those who RP, or just don't like the aesthetic of naming ships "Shield 14km AC wd2" or similar, the notes are much less intrusive.

Solution 1: Rename the ship when you're actually flying it
Solution 2: Use the "NOTES" feature and just write it down, along with the RP names.

Example:

Divine Bovine - max tank blackbird, 70km range
Crazy Charlie - Stabber, 14km, anti-frig, afterburner.
