Right click the overview arrow, within your overview. You'll notice that you can save states of the overview settings, this is helpful so you can change your overview on the fly.

For most sane purposes, choose to save the state, and type "WAR" and hit 'OK'.

Now, click the arrow again and choose 'Overview settings...'.

Click the "Filters" tab closest to the top of the settings window.

Below, you have more tabs, "Types" and "States", click on "Types".

[FILTERS] -> [TYPES]
Check all EXCEPT:
"Pilot has good standing"
"Pilot has high standing"
"Pilot is in your alliance"
"Pilot is in your corporation"
"Pilot is in your gang"

[FILTERS] -> [STATES]
"Station" nothing is checked
"Celestial" nothing is checked
"Drone" nothing is checked
"NPC" Pirate NPC is checked, nothing else
"Entity" nothing is checked
"Asteroid" nothing is checked
"Ship" EVERYTHING CHECKED
"Deployable" everything checked
"Structure" nothing checked

Now click on the "Appearance" tab at the very top.

[APPEARANCE] -> [Colortag]
"* gang *" not checked
"* corporation *" not checked
"* alliance *" not checked
"* high standing *" not checked
"* good standing *" not checked
"* status below -5 *" not checked
"* status below 0 *" not checked
"* war *" CHECKED
"* bad standing *" CHECKED
"* horrible standing *" CHECKED
"* bounty *" CHECKED

MOVE "Pilot is at war with you" TO THE TOP. You do this by clicking on that entry, and clicking the "Move Up" button at the bottom.

What this configuration does, is masks your corpmates bad standings so you don't see them blinking in space. ONLY neutrals with -5 or below, valid war targets and those unknowns with aggro will show up in space as blinking red (and show up in overview)

Now, click on Background

[APPEARANCE] -> [Background]
"Pilot is at war with you" CHECKED
"* gang *" CHECKED
"* corporation *" CHECKED
"* alliance *" CHECKED
"* high standing *" CHECKED
"* status below -5 *" CHECKED
ALL OTHERS ARE UNCHECKED

Again, MOVE "Pilot is at war with you" to the TOP of the list as before.

DROP "Pilot has security status below -5" TO THE BOTTOM OF THE LIST. (This makes sure, if you see a blinking red icon in space, he's NOT your corp, alliance, gang or whatnot.)

Click on "Columns" tab at the top.

[COLUMNS]
Here, choose what best suits your fighting style.

Now, click on "Ships" tab at the top.

[SHIPS]
"Hide corp ticker if pilot is in alliance" CHECKED

*the rest, suit to your tastes...

BUT

Have "SHIP TYPE" CHECKED (makes it very easy to identify ships in space by moving your mouse over their icon.)

SAVE YOUR STATE! Remember we named it "WAR".... oh yeah!!!!

This will hide all Garbage from your overview. No gang members will show up in your overview, corp mates, or peeps in your alliance. Corp mates should be green, regardless of their sec status, gang mates purple, friendlies blue... regardless of their active security status.

I hope this helps some peeps setup their overviews. It's a wierd feeling when you look and realize someone in your alliance is shooting you... accidentally.

*HINT*, I've experienced far fewer "overview bugs" with this configuration too.

Unselect "apply only to ships" to get colortags for drones, and in turn also the ability to filter your own drones out of overview while having hostile ones on it.

It's the secks.

Control Tower and Forcefield. If it's offline you can safe there or you might want to blow it up.

I think the Filters -> Types and Filters -> States need to be reversed.

Very nice post. As an alternative suggestion, if you want to keep more people in overview you can also use backgrounds for bad standigns, flashing backgrounds for wars, and icons for the rest. That's pretty much how I do it and it works for me.

but i like to be able to see corpses on my overview

and my gang mates to flash purple in space as background ( not on overview )

overview is quite interesting actully many things you can do w/ it

but this should help alot of people gj

Noob! Wink

For fleets take off the flashing backgrounds to reduce lag.

I think I have:

0.0 PVE
Empire PVE
Gang (Pirate)
Gang (No-Gates)
Gang (Drones)
Fleet - Like gang no SG's but as all lag settings off.
Pirate (Solo)

Once they are setup then you can select the appropriate one midwarp, works well.

Awesomeness!!

[FILTERS] -> [TYPES]

"Station" nothing is checked
"Celestial" nothing is checked
"Drone" nothing is checked
"NPC" Pirate NPC is checked, nothing else
"Entity" nothing is checked
"Asteroid" nothing is checked
"Ship" EVERYTHING CHECKED
"Deployable" everything checked
"Structure" nothing checked

&

[FILTERS] -> [STATES]
Check all EXCEPT:
"Pilot has good standing"
"Pilot has high standing"
"Pilot is in your alliance"
"Pilot is in your corporation"
"Pilot is in your gang"

Great Post. I admit my overview is a mess as it is right now.
What really peeves me is,..why can't I 'tear' sections from the overview and move them around like any other window?!
Really sucks to have 10 people in a gang, 20 Pirates in space, trying ta control drones and ya gotta open and close 'tween sections,...

anybody got any secret ways to deal?
