    HowTo: Overview Settings - Brackets and Tabs [v1.01]

    Copy/pasted from SHC, credit to Dinique

    Over the past two weeks, someone in Team Minmatar channel is failing at configuring their brackets every day. Seeing as how I'm the nicest person ever, I'm making this dummy proof guide to getting brackets and overview tabs to work for you.

    Why brackets?

    They reduce client lag, improve grid loading and they reduce space clutter. Removing drones for example, makes a huge difference in big fleet fights, especially when fighters are involved.

    What are brackets?

    Brackets are all the little icons you see in space that lets you select objects like ships, gates, moons, planets, asteroid belts, drones, wrecks and so on.

    What are bracket settings?

    They are exactly identical to Overview Settings. An Overview Setting is basically just a filter that you can apply either to your Overview, or to what icons you see in space. In the UI they are still called Overview Settings, but they are actually just a filter. This is probably the leading cause of confusion.

    Bracket settings also use the State tab, just like the overview. So you can hide or show icons for blues/hostiles/corp members etc as you like.

    How do I brackets?

    Step 1: Find the Overview, look at the top part where it shows your overview tabs, if you haven't added any you will only see Default listed.




    Step 2: Right click on the Default tab and add a new tab.

    Step 3: Right click on the triangle in the top left corner of the overview, and select Overview Settings.



    Step 4: Configure your overview setting to display everything you want to see on the overview. Save the setting. Deselect EVERYTING under the Drone folder unless you have a good reason not to.

    Step 5: Open Overview Settings again. Now configure a setting that will display everything you want to see in space and save it. I recommend you load the setting you just created for overview, but under the State tab make sure to select Alliance members, Corp members, High Standings, Gang Members etc. (Unless you dont want them to show up in space)



    Step 6: Save your new setting, give it the same name as the overview setting you want to couple it with but add "bracket" to the end of the name or whatever. This just makes it easier to keep track. (you could just create one universal bracket setting you use on all your tabs as well)

    Step 7: Right click on your new tab, select Change Overview Setting and select your newly created setting for the Overview.



    Step 8: Right click on the tab, select Change Bracket Setting and select your newly created bracket setting. Bracket settings and Overview settings are the same thing, remember.

    Everytime you edit an overview setting, just reselect both settings for the active tab, because it sometimes resets.

    A buggy thing that seems to happen to some people is that their tabs reset whenever they open the default tab or any other tab. This seems to work for some people:

    Step 1: Load an overview setting into the default tab (you have to use the triangle on the overview, as the Default tab doesn't have the same context menu as other tabs).

    Step 2:Configure your tabs as outlined above.

    Step 3:Right click on the Overview triangle and save the current Overview Setting.

    Instructions

    1) Download rar
    2) extract to Documents/Eve/Overview. Note you may have to make the Overview folder if you have never exported/imported settings before
    3) Ingame, go right click on your overview and select import overview settings
    4) Select shigsyoverview
    5) ????
    6) Profit!

    CCP appear to semi fail, so for brackets to tack affect you must open overview settings, go to overview tabs, and hit apply.

    Default overview settings comes with 5 tabs - PVP, Low bracket, no lag, other, GTFO

    PVP = High amount of brackets with all ships on overview. Designed for small scale pvp
    Low Bracket = Low amount of brackets (no drones/pos mods) and all ships on overview.
    No lag = No brackets whatsoever and all ships
    Other = Setup for pve (high brackets + all ships)
    GTFO = just planets and belts overview + bracket wise. For spamming warp when about to die to save pod.

    If you right click overview, you may notice theres more than currently shown on tabs. This is due to a maximum of 5 tabs, but still allows for quick swapping.

    Anything with bracket before it, should be used for bracket settings, comes in 4 flavours high,med,low,none.

    Other settings include...
    PVP - All ships
    PVP BS - Battleships only
    PVP Caps - All capital ships only
    PVP Support - All Subcap only
    Drones - Drones only
    Loot whore - Friendly + enemy wrecks and cans

    I think thats about everything, will update post if anything changes.

    I know this is a necro, but does anybody have an another link to that Overview Editor? Meredith's link is very dead, and I would very much like to try it out.

    Edit: also first post, too soon for +1?

    The link is dead, but it's just editing the XML files. Export your overview, open the XML, find the ship labels bit, and add colors to the ones you want. eg:
    Code:
    <label>
     <part name="pre" value="&lt;color=0xFF1616f1&gt;"/>
     <part name="state" value="1"/>
     <part name="type" value="pilot name"/>
     <part name="post" value="&lt;/color&gt;&#xA0;"/>
    </label>
    That one turns the pilot name label blue (1616F1) with full opacity (FF). Should be pretty easy to figure out if you know any XML/HTML.

    Try downloading this, saving it as a .yaml and importing it into Eve, ensuring you select to import all rather than just 5 + generic settings.

    all above links are fucked because.. last year. New overview icons are fucking shite and I am struggling to adjust. Need ships to stand out more in the overview and need some tab arrangements that cover multiple roles.
