I would like to SAVE revisions of them.
UI EVENT TOGGLE
ALSO I would like a AUTO TOGGLE on given EVENTS.
Let me Explain
Say your in COMBAT Mode, I want UI to auto CHANGE to saved "Combat UI".
Say your in NO COMBAT Mode, UI would auto change to saved " None Combat UI".
Say your in SCAN Mode, I want UI to auto CHANGE to saved "Scan UI".
Say your in MINING Mode, I want UI to auto CHANGE to saved "Mining UI".
This can also apply do different modes that have different widgets, like fleet control, or management, exploration, etc.....
Interesting idea, not entirely sure how functional it would be though given that you're basically talking about a different version of a previous iteration Josh was working on with regards to the UI in the form of "Desktops" akin to the LInux multiple desktop concept. At that point you'd basically have each Desktop being a separate revision. Again an interesting idea but with regards to functionality I'm not so sure. Ideally you want as much information available to you at all times as possible and I just can't really see you needing to swap if it's done right.
Combat UI? Well okay maybe I could see the need for that if you want everything a certain way for dog fighting or maybe have it a different way for fleet engagements. Mining UI? Not so much. I just don't know that mining is particularly information intensive in such a way that it would require it's own UI. Though I've nothing against maybe having it as an option all the same. "Non-Combat UI" I'm not even sure what that would mean or entail really. Scan UI... I'm not entirely sure that this isn't still a thing in some capacity or another as active scanning is still most likely a thing. Others can correct me if I'm wrong but as far as I know I haven't heard Josh say that the Desktops concept has been removed entirely so this may already be achievable in some form or another.
