The ability to mouse over a value and get the real (double or float) value, and be able to copy it. The rounded off value makes it impossible to create accurate spreadsheets. Also provide information, on one of your websites, on how to "properly" calculate broker fees and any other value that requires a complex equation, using actual values (not rounded off ones). This always has been an issue to me.

The ability to drag N drop links from the People and Places menu into chat or mail. Currently, you have to open the info panel, then drag N drop the image or text of the place.

Auto Pilot would be better if it stopped by the gate around 1km instead of 15km.

Change Plex so that it cannot be dropped if ship is destroyed, so it can be stolen by enemy players. This is the same as stealing real money.

Add the ability to compress ore in any station, not just player owned citadels or player owned stations.

Either get rid of, or change what the Margin Trading skill does. Reducing escrow is not a perk; rather, it's a problem when you run out of money, causing your buy orders to be not fulfilled.

Make CONCORD more dangerous to players who engage unlawfully in hi-sec. As of now, players tend to not care about CONCORD and engage unlawfully without penalty.

For a game based on 20+ thousand years in the future, why are we still using metal can steam-punk style ships and balloon propulsion? Why not give us biologically grown ships that can fold space?

When warping, instead of having a heat wave tube for the effect, why not make it so the whole environment threads out like in StarTrek or other science fiction?

Why is space full of clouds? Why not make the background with different types of stars and galaxies and other things based on Astronomy?

That would be nice, yes. In many cases, the actual number is provided through the api. Not for broker fees though

Could have sworn you could. I'll bring it up if there's an appropriate time.

Not going to change. Manual piloting will always be safer and more efficient than autopiloting. This is a design decision

Go have a read of the most recent devblog on plex. you want to see the Plex Vault.

Probably not going to change. There have to be benefits to people having infrastructure at risk.

Margin trading is a very very useful skill when you get to scale. I have buy orders I could not cover if they all came in at once, but in regular activity, they're all covered by the corresponding sell orders.

Concord _will_ destroy the ship of people who engage unlawfully in highsec. If you've seen people avoiding this, you should enter a support request, as this is a banable offence.

... uh what?

... uh, what?

... you have heard of nebula, right?

Woo! CSM XI!

...Ahh... All such good ideas, sadly nothing new. Regrettably EVE doesn't obey the laws of common sense. You get used to it, or stop playing. Most people take the later option, hence the small player base.

With the exception of the proposed PLEX vault change, (and that is being fought tooth n nail as I type) All the things you mentioned where deliberately designed to be that way, the PLEX losses where originally by design too, but someone has grown up and finally seen sense.

It's all part of a dedicated ideal that CCP would rather have a smaller player base of bullies than a larger player base of happy gamers. Lol

Plex is a massive **** you by CCP to its player base. Anyone who thinks the BONUS plex is going to stay is diluted. It cost more $$$ now to get 1m of game time compared to before. Before you could buy a 6 pack for 105, now you send 105 and you still don't have 6 and that is with the "BONUS". Its base value just over 4. Such a **** screw job.

About 4 cents more.
