While I know this is a ‘feature request’, if you are new here, take my advice and turn off overheating.
What is overheating? The ability to push components of your ship to do better and in PVP it might save your life. HOWEVER, as a new player it means a miss-click melts your guns. If you never trained Thermodynamics skill in ye olden days you don’t have to worry. Now every new pod pilot has it on by default.
Here is how to turn it off. I would recommend you do it while you are learning the game.
