As much as I approve of the return of Ship Spinning, I also believe that the blue button previously seen on Sisi above the dock button for changing between quarters/ship spinning was the better way to go on account of it always being visible. In the current design with it being beneath your location information it can be covered by open windows making it a little harder to access. I know it's nit picking, but still, It's the little things that make the difference!

good.

hope the little nice buttons we had on the previous CQ build on SISI will be back quickly, as i really don't like the horrible box you added to switch view on this build.

OMG!!! Thank youuuuuu!!!!!

I personally think people will use CQ more now, not less. I know I will. There were times when I wanted to get on CQ but I couldn't be bothered to enable station environment and undock/redock to play with it. I have it disabled because I don't want it to lag me out when I run 3 to 4 clients at the same time out when I'm pvping to lose extra loading time

The CSM XI Election are now open until March 25th, 2016. Consider Niko Lorenzio for CSM XI.

CSM matters, your voice matters, your vote matters!

Such a simple, elegant solution that keeps as many people as is feasible happy all at the same time, it may be several months late but at least you've finally put right the biggest (easily) fixable screwup of the Incarna trainwreck.

Now the frothy-mouthed haters can ignore Incarna entirely as much as they like, and those of us that might use it occasionally can actually do so without stupid faffing about, thankyou CCP, for the first time in a long time you might actually succeed in releasing something that makes the majority of people if not happy at least slightly less angryBig smile

Useless Captain´s Quarters, please give poker, dice or any multiplayer minigames to CQ or remove from game. Too much technology for nothing!

There actually appears to be a couple of issues with the "new" hangar.
Yes, it's new because it has all that shiny fog everywhere...

Except now we have FPS consistancy issues with the hangar; don't get me wrong, it's less of a resource hog, but it seems to like inserting artificial constraints on the frame rate when you look at the fog for too long.
Feature or Bug?

It does go back to usual if you spin your camera for a bit though...
CCP Conspiracy! We've given you ship spinning back, so now you'd better start spinning... OR ELSE!

Also, it is now mandatory to go on sisi and ship spin with this in the background.

My guess is that the fog is supposed to keep consistancy between the CQ balcony view with all the fog and the hangar view...
But this fog is not very kind to our hardware, and it frankly hurts my eyes - it's too bright! :d

Captain's Quarters is nice and all, but is vastly inferior to "ship spinning" only on one front: benefit. How is CQ necessary to my life as a pilot--how does it benefit me? Can I jump out of my ship run down to the refinery and jack myself in to personally oversee refining or constructing and get double bonuses? (I know that's a silly example) We as a community play eve because of depth, not because of "shiny". There are a lot prettier games out there, but none are as nuanced as Eve. So yes, I'm glad that ship spinning is back, but I also await the killer thing that makes CQ a must.

To be honest, simply being able to walk around a station and see areas of it that we usually only hear about in passing (reprocessing plant, cloning bay, station offices) would add a hell of a lot of depth and shiny to the game for me. I'm a roleplayer so I want to see the massive food court they talked about in Jita 4-4. I want to be able to have a shady late-night meeting with one of my friends on a catwalk above a reprocessing plant where the ambient noise is too high for remote eavesdropping equipment to work. I want to be able to hold a meeting with my corpmates and trusted associates around a boardroom table at our corporate headquarters to discuss future plans.

That's all just walking, talking and looking at things. That'd add a hell of a lot of depth to the game for me.

Be happy and merry CCP for you have pleased your customers!

It is incredible to me that in a game I'm so invested in with so much complexity that I am soo damn excited for spinning a ship, in a hangar. It really is a bunch of little things.

<3

I hope this new path of making the customer happy continues as it has brought about many wonderful things in the past and will only bring more goodies (cough money cough) to you CCP. You get good reviews and more customers by making your existing ones even happier with you.

Come get me when my other shiny little things have finished in the microwave *logs into sisi*
