When going through the comments on the brainstorm the CSM put together of the problems in the game, one thing I was reminded of by u/der_rey was the state of the default overview, and how poor it is for new players, as it fails to show some potentially important information. As such, I thought I’d reach out to you guys and hopefully try and put together a small selection of overviews that best empower a new player with the information they need to play the game.
The first thing I wanted to tackle was the ‘tabs’, for which the default has to be some form of ‘general overview’ that’s suitable for traveling, PvE, and most importantly, running through the tutorial. Beyond this however, what tabs do you think new players need to be able to properly navigate and interact with the game?
You can answer with as many as you wish, but it’ll likely end up being only 2-3 additional overviews on top of the general one.
Personally, I think a General + Mining + PvP + Travel overview package makes the most sense, but I want to get as many opinions as possible on this, so that no options are overlooked in terms of helping signpost things for new players.
After we decide on the best tabs for the overview package, I’ll do my best to create an overview that reflects these options, and present it to you guys for any testing and feedback on improving it, and after that’s done, I’ll throw it to CCP directly. Even if it’s not something they wish to test, the overviews created from this will likely be of great use for new players in the Rookie Chat anyway, so I see a positive goal here no matter CCPs decisions.
Thank you for your time
EDIT: If you have any other overview related suggestions, or specific things that should be included, feel free to suggest them here as well!
