Hey folks. We are trying something a little unusual this month to hopefully get a nice UI tweak for you folks with a smoother than usual transition.
We’ve had player requests for quite some time to move the Cynosural Field to its own inventory group so that it can be selected separately from other beacons in overview tab presets.
Since we generally avoid messing with people’s saved overview settings we’ve run into some painful transitions in the past moving items around between groups as the items might not appear in some people’s custom overviews. Missing cynos in an overview tab preset that you want cynos to show up on is far from ideal for obvious reasons.
So we’re going to try something a bit different this time: in the December release we’ve created a new group called “Future Home of Cyno Fields”. You’ll be able to find this group within the “Celestial” category in your overview tab presets menu. There isn’t anything in this group right now, but in our February release we plan on renaming the group to “Cynosural Fields” and moving cynos over to it.
The two months in the meantime are intended to give players a chance to add the group to their custom overviews, as well as allowing the makers of shareable custom overview presets to add it to their offerings.
The end result of these changes will be that after Februrary you’ll be able to have an overview that shows cynos without showing standard beacons (such as the event beacons) or vice versa. We advise players to take this intermediate time to add the new “Future Home of Cyno Fields” to their custom overviews as they see fit, and to let their corp/alliance mates know to do the same.
