I agree, if you want to collect your resources from the POCO or Container, you need to expose yourself in space anyway, so why not simply let it launch from anywhere like all other PI-operations? Under tether or within a Forcefield or even during the undock-invulnerability (which is more than enough to initiate launch), you cannot be attacked anyway.
Also: unnessessary undock/dock maneuvers put unnessessary strain to client and server.
Keywords: ui, mailing lists
Note: Being able to create a clickable link to join a Mailing List like you can for chat channels or almost literally everything else in the game. Having to tell people what to search to add a mailing list is a unnecessary pain…
OMG YESSSS coloring the buttons to match the color of the broadcast! Maybe it is just an outline to help make sure that the icons are fully visible but so much yes. Associate the color of the broadcast with the button
Suggestion: Add search fields into the market orders list (separated for sell and buy sections). Keywords: ui, market Note: better usability
When having too many market orders (up to 300+) it’s very difficult to manage them all. Adding a search/filter fields would make it much easier, especially if it’ll be available not just to filter by name, but also filter by type. Picture:
Suggestion: Add colored “Status” field into the “my orders” section of the market orders. Keywords: ui, market Note: reduce players and server wasted time
In addition to the previous suggestion - another good way to reduce players (and server) wasted time by drastical reduction of the “empty” checking of all of your orders one by one. Currently 90% of all situations when you use market orders list: is to find where you’ve been outbid and update this price. So here’s the solution:
Into the Orders history tab of the market orders window there’s a colored column “status”:
Now all we need is just to add similiar column into the “my orders” section of the market orders. But change its logic a bit:
Green text: Best price (highest for buy orders / lowest for sell).
Red text: Outbid.
White text: Selling/Buying. You were already outbid when creating (or modifying) such order - intentional decision when waiting/hoping for good price.
Suggestion: Make it possible to copy text with links attached
Keywords: Quality of life, text, mail, notepad, chat
Note: Right now, there is no way to copy text with links attached, you have to rewrite the entire document. It would be such a quality of life improvement if you could choose weather to copy the text or to copy the text and keep links.
Suggestion: Hotkey to open the Watch List window manually.
Keywords: UI, fleet, watch list, hotkeys
Note: It would be nice to open this window with a hotkey and be able to drag people into the window instead of having to right-click a char and add it to the watch list to create it.
Suggestion: Add “Add members to watchlist” option for the whole fleet Keywords: UI, fleet, watchlist Note: Now that The Watch List cap has been increased logis want to add everyone, but filling the Watch List can be a pain especially if your fleet has several squads. This suggestion is to add to “fleet” and “wing” the “Add members to watchlist” option that is currently only available for “squad”
Suggestion: Add a “Close all unlocked windows” Keyboard Shortcut Keywords: UI, windows Note: Most players set up UI fixed elements like chats, drones, anomalies windows and so on, and on top of those open temporary windows like inventory, fitting, agency, etc. The proposed keybind would allow users to set up as “locked” their base UI, while allowing to close all the extras with a single button. At the moment we only have one that closes everything (including all the chats, which must then be rejoined one by one).
Suggestion: Upon zoning, put focus on the Overview and real selection on the first Overview element Keywords: UI, overview Note: While following a route, if the overview is ordered by icon, the first item in the list will always be the next waypoint, users can simply click the “Jump” button to follow the route. While this works with mouse clicking, it doesn’t work by pressing the relative “D” keyboard shortcut.
At the moment the only way to make this work only by keyboard is:
Use the “Set Overview Focus” shortcut, to give focus to the window
Press the down arrow once, to actually select the first item as the displayed selection is fake
Suggestion: Have “Compact Mode” reduce the spacing between lines Keywords: UI, lists Note: “Compact Mode” is currently only reducing UI borders, but what most players really seem to want from it is to increase information density, especially when it comes to lists which have huge lines spacing between rows. This is particularly noticeable with the increased Watch List size, which can now fill the whole screen height and still have a scrollbar
Suggestion: Add a Keyboard Shortcut for “Clear all Broadcast Icons” Keywords: UI, fleet, watchlist Note: The “Clear all Broadcast Icons” in the Watch List menu is useful and could use a Keyboard Shortcut
Suggestion: Add a “Always show my own broadcasts” option in the “Broadcast Settings” Keywords: UI, fleet, broadcast Note: As a DPS in fleets I usually want to keep my broadcast window free of all the shield/armor/cap spam, but would also want to make sure that my own went through. The proposed option would allow to hide unwanted messages while still providing feedback that own broadcasts were sent to the fleet
Suggestion: Make compressed ore automatically stack if already present in the inventory Keywords: cargo, items, mining Note: When compressing ore the result of the compression currently generates its own stack, which constantly requires the additional action of “Stack all” to keep the cargo hold uncluttered
Suggestion: Queue up Log Off on session timer, like Undock Keywords: UI, timers Note: Currently the Log Off action fails with an error if performed during session timer, the Undock action instead gets queued and executed at the end of the timer. The proposal is to have Log Off behave as the Undock. The proposal can be extended to all actions affected by the Session Timer, such as ship change or fleet join/leave
Suggestion: Add a Certifications tab to the Character Sheet Keywords: UI, Certifications Note: I cannot find anywhere a list of che Certifications I currently have, the tooltip on Skill Groups only shows the number of Certifications acquired, and the only way I’ve found to reach them is from a ship’s Mastery.
Possibly Allow using a Certification as a Skill Plan milestone
Suggestion: Option for moving all PI extractors at once Keywords: UI, PI Note: Players usually arrange their PI extractors in known configurations, the proposals is about adding a on/off button to lock the extractors relative position and move them all at once
Suggestion: QOL notification when you’re inside a bubble Keywords: UI, Combat, Warp Disruption Bubble Note: There should be a QOL notification when you’re inside a warp bubble. It will be easier for us who are inside the bubble to know we’re inside the bubble.
It’s very useful when you’re in super potato mode or you’re too disoriented with a lot of things happening in a fleet battle.
