There are been several topics already started and closed on improving stack manipulation. Please search the forum for the keyword, “stack”, to review the previous threads.
So the stack saga continues…
I propose the idea that the computer should do what it does best and have it calculate separating stacked items based on user input. Possibly the simplest way to implement would be to add functionality to the existing window that pops up. Allow the input line to accept fraction values such as 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, & 3/4. Or any other fraction.
Also, taking from one of the previous ideas already posted. Make it possible to select multiple stacks for splitting either with a specified number or a fraction as indicated above.
Shift drag to split a stack.
If you want to split it in fractions, do some mental calculations, or use the ingame calculator.
Well, I doubt this will earn me much sympathy, but better stack manipulation would certainly be nice for multiboxers.
For example, if I have 100 of a drug, and want to grab 10 for each character, I have to split 10 off, again and again and again… I know it might not seem like much, but actions like that can really add up when you’re controlling a bunch of characters. So it would be nice if you could do stuff like press ctrl+LC to grab 10 (Of course, there are different ways to go about implementing better stack manipulation. So, I’m not saying that this is definitely the way Eve should do it. Just using it as one example of how things could be improved).
Anyway, I don’t know if this is the most important thing for CCP to work on, but a lot of modern games that allow large stacks of items have better stack manipulation. So, as far as I’m concerned, Eve is behind the times on this one.
Other games have a slider under the text input. So you can adjust the slider and it will adjust the value. If it’s halfway it’s 50%.
