Show ship in station.

I'm a relatively new player only a year old, so I missed all the prime times of EVE. While surfing for more Eve wallpapaers, I stumbled across this image. When I look at my ship in stations now i'm disappointing by the lack of environment. It always seems like my ships are in a random corner of the station, I want to see the whole thing. I imagine stations as giant floating cities. Like in the earlier picture. It looks like an actual city people want to live in, not the backwater hotel room the current stations show. I think it would be neat of when indie stations you get a glimpse of the the actual "city" part.

I agree...

And bring back the cut scenes of the large cats in the cockpit talking to you.

Oh, wait.... what was I talking about again?

I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young." "Why, what did she tell you?" "I don't know, I didn't listen."

I want that Quafe hologram IRL

That is a very old picture, that Mach looks horrible...

in ccp's defense... Its a ship hangar... it's not supposed to be pretty. Once more WiS (if ever) is released, I would expect to be greeted by that Quafe hologram upon opening 'the door'

FC, what do?

It would be nice to see more of the station. I mean, what we have now gives a good sense of scale, though. Smile

Bring your possibles.

Bring back pleasure hubs!

Oh, and give us in-hangar traffic like this or this.

I was hoping for a stripteasing hologram for well... you know the cold nights... to keep your hands warm...

I find the current Amarr station view a lot better than the other races' stations. The little shuttles going back and forth add so much and overall it just looks plausibly busy. Would be really cool if something like the several ship platforms in the Amarr station hangar would be in all hangars and have the other ships in your ship hangar on them if you have several ships in the same station. Gallente stations look particularly ridiculous because of how big they are versus how much of the space is actually used.

Since the ship platforms in all but the Amarr stations (which wouldn't need changing at all) are basically free standing/hanging/whatever it shouldn't be much of a problem to add a couple more to each.

And add some random shuttle traffic and for the love of isk some ship traffic like what's show in the videos Tippia linked.

Ah, the good old days of the Gallente pleasure hub.

Best station interior ever.
