Installing Overview Settings
The overview folder for the Mac client is now located in the users Documents folder.
- Download your new overview settings. The Eve University overview settings can be downloaded here.
- Move the overview settings file to the Eve Online overview folder. The folder is located at:
If this folder does not exist it can be created manually or by 'Saving' a overview under 'Overview Settings' when undocked, select 'Tab Presets' tab and select 'Save'.
- In game, undock so you are able to see your overview. Make sure the coast is clear before you undock! Then click the four bars at the top left of your overview then select Import Overview Settings.
- Under the Import Overview Settings window, select the overview you saved in the left hand list and in the right hand list select 'Check All'. Then select 'Import'.
- After this you should have the EVE University official overview installed.
Setting up a Custom Resolution In Windowed Mode
If you're running EVE Online in windowed mode, you may want to fine-tune the size of the client windows. You can simply select a different resolution in the in-game settings, but you may find they're too small or too big, and don't make best use of your screen real estate.
To set up a custom resolution, try a program like SwitchResX. Enter the screen-size you want in the Custom Resolutions tab. Doing this won't change the resolution your monitor is running at, but it will let the EVE Client see it as an option next time you play the game.

The macOS client will allow native support for Big Sur and will be moved to Metal, Apple's processing framework that allows near-direct access to the GPU. This should allow the experience to be visually spectacular for macOS users. CCP Games is continuing to expand EVE Online in interesting and unique ways. Even beyond bringing the game to a new client and doing things in-game that are player-friendly, CCP and EVE Online has contributed to COVID-19 research, Guinness world records have been broken, and CCP Games recently launched The EVE Online Partnership Program.
Today CCP is excited to unveil work on a native macOS EVE Online client, ensuring the best visual experience for Mac players, with significant optimizations & performance improvements!
