Little things / Small QoL suggestions

Suggestion: Give ancillary armor repairers unique icon
Keywords: Items, User interface
Armor repairers and ancillary armor repairers look the same. This is inconvenient when looking for modules in hangars.
Ancillary shield repairers have the cap booster in the item icon so it would make sense for ancillary armor repairer to have nanite paste icon.

Suggestion: Turn in your corpses to faction for standing increases
Keywords: corpses, graveyard, cadaver, selling
Note: useful even if you’re killboard padding on an alt

This would be really useful instead of just having a one-time only opportunity to hand in tags on a single character for faction standing increases at data center agents as an option to change. It would also create more interest in collecting corpses. Maybe also have a system to check if the character is one of the empires so if you turn the corpse in to the opposing empire then you get more standing increases, same goes for pirate factions (blood raiders have a slightly higher standing gain because blood raiders)

Suggestion: Add notes tab on corps and alliances like characters already have when showing info
Keywords: ui, notes
Note: Makes life easier for managers of channels, access lists, mailing lists, corps, alliances, etc.

I’ve dealt with possibly thousands of characters in my EVE life, way more than my memory can remember, so I kind of rely on my notes to help me keep track of things like if I’ve talked to this character before, maybe they mailed me in the past, or someone shared valuable info about them, etc. The notes-tab helps a ton here, and very often when I deal with corps/alliances, I miss it.

Suggestion: Station Camera should point towards front of ship instead of behind it
Keywords: camera, station
Note: when docking the camera shows the ship from behind. It should show the ship from the front (its much prettier looking at the front of the ship and I always have to move camera to view ship from front (but off center a bit at an angle)) Thanks!

Suggestion: Change the “Report isk spammer” report option to something more clear, like “Advertising real-money trades”. Change the followup screen to clarify what RMT actually is.

Keywords: UI, reports, RMT

Notes:

I know tons of megabads who report jita isk doublers for isk spamming, since it seems like “spamming free isk” is the same as “isk spamming.” The report button is actually for RMT, but loads of scammers/advertisers get reported for it by people who confuse its intention.

The followup screen isn’t any help either:

This doesn’t do anything to clarify what “isk spamming” actually is. It could be changed to provide a definition, like “This function is for reporting people advertising real-money trades, including websites purporting to sell ISK and in-game items for real money. The only legal way to purchase in-game items is to buy PLEX and other services from CCP.”

This would probably cut down on superfluous reports a lot.

SUGGESTION: compress moon ore

Suggestion: Contest applied damage readout after contest in incursions
Keywords: Incusions, contesting, UI

When two fleets go into the same site in an incursion it is a contest. It is indirect pvp. You win (And get paid) or lose based on which fleet does more applied damage. The only indication we have currently is who gets paid. We can not actually see if it was a close contest or a one sided event. I believe it would foster a bit more competition if people can see how far behind they are and how much better little or a lot they need to be.

Thanks,

Suggestion: Ability to see remaining distance in ship HUD while approaching
Keywords: ui, ship controls
Note: Useful to see how many km/meters are remaining to the object when selected item or overview tab is switched

When ship approaches or aligns to the object, it would useful to see remaining distance as clear as when ship is warping to, especially if you have to switch selected objects in overview or change its tabs.
