Little Things request: the ability to pin item stacks to your cargo hold

I have a harmless quirk, shared by many other Eve players: I like to keep various items in my cargo hold. Some people keep exotic dancers and spirits; I keep anti-shipping mines.

but I have a problem. That problem is ‘select all’.

When I select all and dump stuff in my hangar, so too goes all my cargo hold decorations. I could do right-click->invert selection before dragging the rest to my hangar, but then I started thinking. The only time I’ve ever been tempted to use ‘invert selection’ is to keep one or two things where they are and move the rest. But it’s always the same things I’m excluding every single time. Surely there’s a better way.

What I really wanted from the UI was a way to lock down and pin certain item stacks in my cargo hold and hangar. Being able to pin my ammo and nanite paste into my cargo hold, or pin containers to my hangar floor would be a nice perk. I could use the select-all keyboard shortcut with impunity.

Heck, in one sense, the feature already kinda exists:

Admittedly, this feature is only available to corp hangars, but it’s the same concept: right click to lock a blueprint, then it’s not going anywhere until it’s unlocked. Obviously a personal lock wouldn’t require a corporate vote, just right click and unlock it again.

So, that’s my ‘little things’ idea.

Personally, I think it’s a lot more useful than ‘invert selection’.

    I simply made a filter for this – i called it “OnlyLoot” and made a series of filters on names .. for instance my mobile tractor unit and all my ammo gets hidden when i enable the filter and then i just do a select all on the rest. nice and tidy

    Maybe you could put them in a small standard container with the name “0.1 – Care Package” so it always sorts to the top. Uses up 100m3 though. Not sure what effect it has on killmails either
