Hello devs and New Eden fellas,
I’ve been a drone user from the first time I played EVE, back in 2015.
I’ve been doing exploration at the same time, and I love how exploration have changed from time to time, and the attention given, such as the reworks of the solar map and easier probe scanning, etc.
What I haven’t seen is some quality-of-life change for drones operation (UI)
Living in a town far from my country Capital means I don’t have the best internet connection. Ping is 100~ ms. Having to select which enemies which drone will shot is a bit of hassle due to ping. But that doesn’t stop me from playing EVE.
What I want to propose is some changes to how drone operates. Instead of having to click the locked enemy then click which drone, then again click what action it will do, can we get a button on the Drone UI instead?
So, on each launched drone, there are action buttons such as: attack, return to orbit, return to drone bay.
This will be time saving and a very helpful addition to drones user.
And also addition (and if that isn’t viable), i hope there will be shortcuts to drone command, for each of the command, like pressing “1” button to command the first drone of the launched drones to attack, or return to orbit, or return to drone bay, up to 5 of the drones available.
I hope this features ideas will be added soon, thanks for reading!
