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


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.


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


  • May interfere with existing keyboard shortcuts
