Let's see about that. Here is my tactical display setup.
Now let's contrast this with some other UI's that are available in this world.
|... AND back (it takes two!)|
|The Chinese Chengdu J-20!|
These all look far more complicated than my EvE UI and I haven't even shown the MiGs! I'd say that flying an airplane requires a lot of information right at the pilot's fingers. After all, if it were easy, anyone could do it. We all know that isn't so.
So why do capsuleers think they should have it any easier? Whenever I hear one complaining about the overview, I'd like to hit their eject button and send them right out the top of the canopy. Let's get one thing straight: there's nothing so intense and demanding in human experience as the three dimensional aerial dual. No amount of nip and tuck of the UI will change that. If you can't master the fire you will surely die in it. That's life and death in the air - and in space. Get used to it or move on.
