The handy button.

Many pilots finance their living in New Eden by belt ratting, and to improve this, a certain button could be placed in the user interface. Below the system details would be yet another collapsable field, from where you can choose to browse either only planets, moons or asteroid belts. Those who practice Planetary Interaction can view planetary details from the quick menu, choose which type of a planet's (storm, ice, barren, etc.) customs office they want to travel to. And those who are looking for setting up a Control Tower (POS) can view moons. And finally those who look to shoot pirate NPCs can see how many belts there are in the system in total, and when they're at a belt, killed the NPCs, they can just push the [Next Belt] button in order to warp to the next belt. This would speed up the ratting process, as otherwise one would have to browse through the vast list of asteroid belts in the system, find where they are at the moment and then select the next belt(some systems have over 40 belts).

A new POS module (or a modification of the ship fitting array).

A POS module, sort of a depot, where pilots can dock their ship to. The depot would offer fitting services, as well as repair hull and armor damage on your ship and regenerate your shields. Not only that, the depot would be able to repair damaged modules aswell! This would be great for PvE and PvP.

Planetary Interaction update.

The ability to save a planet's structure layout. This would speed up PI building and routing process. You could make different kinds of presets and save them. At a planet, you just open the saved presets window, and load up the structure layout you've previously done and place it where-ever you want.

Not to be exceptionally hostile, but if you can't even remember where in the system you are for 5 minutes, or be bothered to actually move around and explore a bit, and just want everything handed to you so you never have to actually GO SOMEWHERE to learn about it, stay in the station, please.
all i mean to say is, your whole point seems to point to taht you can't be bothered to remember where you are, or the planet types in systems you frequent (which, let's be honest, if your gonna set up PI, it's going to be where you frequent, because no one wants to go 8 jumps out fo their way to kansas just to pick up PI).
IMO this entire proposal seems as it would only cater to those too lazy to actually go do something or look around, and would serve very little purpose to people who have an attention span longer then 5 minutes, (and no, im not just saying this, i have only had an account for upwards of 2 months and have already memorized every gate most of the solar system contents for every planet from amarr to mai, and all i had to do was go out and play the game 2 hours a day.)

Button idea is done, its called right click menu in the star field.


Dislike Pos idea.

PI update, I dont quite get why, that takes away most of the dynamics of how extractors work. For factory planets it works, but then you are just lazy.
