Overview

From EVEWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The overview is part of the user interface that shows a list ("overview") of items of interest in the area when in space. The overview is highly customizable, and a properly set up overview can mean the difference between victory or defeat in tense situations.

A sample overview

Contents

Overview on overviews

  • Object proxy - You can right click on objects in the overview to get a context menu exactly the same as if you right click on an object in space (if the object is a fast moving frigate orbiting you at 500m, it will probably be easier to select through the overview).
  • Sorting - If you click on a column's name (ICON, DISTANCE, NAME, etc.) you can sort it in either ascending (first click) or descending (second click) order. This can be useful, for instance, to sort objects by the distance they are from your ship, or sort objects based on their icons (grouping ships and wrecks and planets, etc. with each other).
  • Resizing - To resize columns, hover the mouse on the two vertical bars || between column names until the pointer changes to a <<-||->> icon, then click and drag horizontally.
  • Docking and overview window - In order to save screen real estate, you can dock windows to the overview. For example, open your cargo hold and drag the window to the overview's title bar until the overview becomes highlighted. Release the mouse and the window is now "docked" on your overview. To undock a window, click and drag the window's tab until it "pops" out of dock.
  • Tabs - A tab represents a sub window which allows you to have multiple overview profiles loaded at the same and easily switch between them. By default there is just a "default" tab, but additional ones can be created by the user. In the sample above there are four tabs: the "default" tab, and three user created tabs named "wreck", "enemies", and "loot". One trick you can try is to have one tab for empty wrecks that you want to Salvage, another for wrecks with loot in them, and another for any hostile ships. Right clicking on an existing tab brings up a context menu allowing you to:
    • Change label - Change the name for an overview tab
    • Load overview profile - Load a profile into the tab (see the section below on saving and loading profiles)
    • Load bracket profile - ?
    • Delete tab - Remove this tab from the overview
    • Add tab - Add a new tab to the overview

Customizing

At the top left of the overview there is a ►. Right click on the ► and select "open overview settings" to open the overview settings window. There are six tabs which allow you to customize various aspects of the overview.

Filters

Appearance

Columns

Columns allow you to decide which information you want to display on each target in the overview. In the sample shown above, the columns are icon, distance, name, type, velocity, radial velocity, and angular velocity. Beyond these, there are also tag, corporation, alliance, faction, militia, size, and transversal velocity. In addition to adding and removing columns, there are buttons at the bottom to change the order in which the columns are presented (so you could have distance then icon if you so chose).

Ships

Misc

By selecting "move entries with broadcasts to the top of the overview", any ships or structures, etc. which is broadcasted will be moved to the top of the overview.
