A much needed addition to the game. I am tired of targeting my friends instead of wrecks when im salvaging for them and wondering why I cant tractor them in.

It's great! No more misclicks due to warp-ins, exploding vessels, distance changes, etc. After the skill queue, this is second on my list of favorite Apo... Apacr... expansion changes. ugh

Very nice. That has caused me much frustration in the past, especially when I accidently lock the beacon - takes like 30 seconds!

Excellent feature, but I'm also looking at the skill queue, attribute respec and drone tweaks with a certain amount of shock and awe :)

And all that goodness will come with a prettier picture and 2500 extra systems to explore!

CCP really excelled with this patch and a big thank you to the CSM who fought our corner for some of the features!

I am sure that functionality is being retained... Think about it, instead of as it is now when you hold ctrl everything is still hopping and bopping around on the overview, now holding ctrl will freeze it in addition to allowing you to ctrl+click items in the now frozen list.

Thread from 2006

It can still be used to target things. Just whilst you're holding it down targetting things no new ships will appear on the overview and wont all juggle around.

I made a thread in the ideas forum suggesting this very idea. I do hope a dev saw my thread and it inspired him.

how will this feature work in the following example scenario where we aren't exactly trying to target lock something?

1. undock from jita 4-4
2. hold ctrl
3. find and highlight stargate in overview
4. let go of ctrl
5. click "warp to" button

It's really just a part of the ctrl to target functionality, so if you are holding ctrl down when you click the stargate you are going to be targeting it.

well.. they are actually supposed to appear at the bottom of the overview, and the list should not sort until you let go of ctrl
