I think there are some things you could do with the new Project Discovery to make it better. (and sorry for my english)
- Chat channel
Add a chat channel under "Content" for "Project Discovery".
Add a "motto of the day" with links to:
- current issues
- eve-wiki (containing also a link to "the real stuff wiki", screenshots of the tutorials (I expect this to be usefull when discussing things with other players))
There are several points I think you can do here.
2.1 Alignment of tutorial windows
I set my UI scaling to 125% because my eyes aren't getting better. Unfortunately, the tutorials started somewhere out of the window so it is impossible to read all of it. Moving the Project Discovery window helped abit but please... fix this.
2.2 Solar Activity Classification
I had to ask in the Help channel wether I had to identify the correct classification(s) or not. It is a N-of-M-selection (means if you click on any classification its border is highlighted and will stay that way till you click it again). If they are for information only, please make this visible somehow. Maybe even move the tiny little questionmark to restart the turorial to that place too.
2.3 Add a slider between the top, middle, bottom region of the window
I'd like to increase the hight of the topmost part because I think it would help focusing on details. The bottommost thing with the solar system is.. nice and i would not throw it away but if I could hide it or make it smaller while having a look at the data would be nice.
2.4 Feedback when failing
I am failing to identify the transits very often. That's ok. But the information why I was wrong, your reasoning, should be improved. Show me what was wrong. Maybe zoom into the block there I failed. I remember there was something in the tutorials where it said "look at the U shaped region" and i was "what the f***?" because you called some points that looked like a broken line a U . Zooming into the block with the problem highlighted would have made it visible - maybe.
2.5 Export of the shown data
Absolutely no idea if this is already possible or if I can download the data somewhere else but I think it might be interesting to be able to export the currently show data - similar to the market data stuff.
- Advanced Ideas
You showed some nice things and I really like having a look at it and trying my best but I am not a physics guy. I can't imagine some of the things I am looking at right now. What might help me would be if you'd add a simulation "the other way round".
- How would our solar system look from planet Vulcan (Star Trek.. Spocks planet), if they would have looked to our sun?
- Show our system in the same window, with all planets and the according measured data (which can't be measured but had to be made up as if they were measured)
- Allow to Remove a planet from the system so I can see how it affects the data
- Allow changing the solar activity classification so I can see how the measured data might change

ps: anywhere a manual how to write in a forum? neither can i find a preview for my post nor how i remove numbering...
