So. Started about 15 minutes after the servers went online for the first time after participating in beta. Left about 9 years ago, and now I’ve come back.
SO MANY NEW THINGS. It’s like learning from scratch all over again. I may have 68mil SP, but I’m bloody useless. At least I have friends that got me back into it that I can bug.
The new UI is…interesting. I can understand moving toward more of a ‘taskbar’ type paradigm for the neocom, but it gets very busy.
So I have a question:
- Is there a way to dock the notification doohicky to the neocom, just as you’d expect in a taskbar paradigm? It seems very, I dunno how to put it, just completely out of place. Yeah I can move it around, but it’s always on top, and Eve has always been a screen real-estate hog.
And two suggestions, which may just be me not knowing the new system:
Can we get the option that the minimize button shades the windows, like they used to do back when we sent carrier pigeons with our game commands? That was a huge benefit. Yeah I can double click, but that’s literally twice the effort!
After all this time, the trade order window is still painful to use. In fact, the whole trading system is a pain to use. If I want to sell something, I have to do two separate things, both in the context menu - view the market data to discover what price to sell at, and then make a sell order. Can we get some way to link the two windows together? So that if I place an order it automatically shows me the market data? Or at the very least have a button in the order window I can click on to do that?
Like I said, this may all be moot and I’m just missing something in the new window system, if so please let me know!
Glad to be back, not glad I’m going to have to strip all my ships and learn new fittings, especially now EFT is dead :’(
