NOTE[edit]

Combined with Improve Overload User Interface (CSM). This item is still In Process.

Summary[edit]

With CCP's announced changes to Thermodynamics (lower skills requirements), it would appear CCP wants to encourage players to use overheating. However, to overheat a module in the heat (no pun intended) of battle, you either need to click the tiny tiny rack-overheating icon left of the rack, or click the tiny button (arced bar) on top of the model.

With the first option, you overheat all modules in a certain rack - not something you always want to do, and with the second option you run a big risk of accidentally turning modules off instead of turning overheating on.

Suggestion to CCP[edit]

Allow pilots to toggle overheating on/off by simply holding down control and clicking the module.

Pros[edit]

  • Easier to turn overheating on and off in combat, encouraging its use

Cons[edit]

  • May interfere with existing keyboard shortcuts
