Indeed. Unfortunatly, these are not coming in Retribution, this is a shot that was composited and not representative of any new ingame hangar development.

If it meant being able to see the scale of our ships against the size of the little people working on the hangar floor.

Yes!

what I saw in the video was so cool that I watch it a few times and wanted to create a separate topic, but it's already done for me. New hangars on the same plane as was shown in the video - it is very very cool! VERY COOL!

Sorry for my english, but I do not use a translator, because I want to talk to you in the same language.

The shot is definitely a great concept and you should flesh it out. It conveys a really good sense of scale because there's people in there, which puts things in perspective and shows off just how freaking huge stuff in this game really is.

But.... but ..... but... I really like Bounty chocolate bars.

How could you be so insensitive!

Another example of CCP being out of touch with their player base?

I have to agree with most of the WiS proposals above. Who wouldn't want to explore what these massive stations have to offer, past that locked door? I think access to the docking pad would be fantastic initially, to be able to stand next to the ship that you worked so hard to purchase, watching as the repair drones work their magic on the hull. The most immediate result of this would be a better judge of scale, which I think is lost with the current system.

Maybe after access is granted to the docking pad, other station services could open up, such as bars or communal areas for avatar-to-avatar communication. While Eve is primarily an in-space experience (as it should be), the human element in the environment is really missed. Perhaps games of chance could be made available to pass the time while you train skills or refine material. Cynics may say that ratting or mining are much better ways to pass the time, but these activities lose their shine after a while.

If you're looking for a practical reason for WiS, perhaps the skill system could (eventually) be expanded to include social activities. Social interaction with NPCs (in taverns, etc) could offer a small chance of skill improvement. Taking the time to meet face to face with a missioning NPC could increase the reward slightly. You could practice your bargaining skills by speaking with NPC traders. Maybe you could even come face to face with your crewmates while docked, improving relationships and thereby improving productivity aboard your vessel. The current system should not be replaced by this - instead, the face to face communication would allow an alternate and possibly beneficial alternative. This would be attractive to PVE and PVP players alike.

I'm not sure about avatar combat, I think that may conflict with what Dust 514 is offering and sounds difficult to implement, without taking away development from many other important game mechanics. I think what WiS comes down to is amplifying the human element within the Eve universe. Space can be very lonely.

Also, about the hangars...

It would be great to be able to see others undocking from Captains Quarters.

As long there is fast loading light weight ship spinning hangar with low processor usage as optional dock up method you can do what ever you want.

MUCH BIGGER! GO NUTS! NO seriously. I look at a station from the outside...go inside and think. There is NO way this station is that small...especially when there should be hundreds of other people in here with me.



Nothing breaks immersion more than undocking from a station and realizing your ship is taller than the space station it was just stored inside of (and I don't mean by just a little bit),.

De'Veldrin's Corollary (to Malcanis' Law): Any idea that seeks to limit the ability of a large nullsec bloc to do something in the name of allowing more small groups into sov null will inevitably make it that much harder for small groups to enter sov null.

Yes please! (bring back the Gallente pleasure hub interior).

Also, applying NPC corp skins to the outside of the station would be very nice. Space is too monotonous.

The usage of the term "troll" is about as used as that empty bottle of lotion under my bed.

So CCP t0rfifrans would you like to comment on ideas you would like to see for station hangers?

Getting a lot of people worked up about something that won't see the light of day within at least 2 years is trolling.

It was a good troll.... a lot of peeps thought Torfi was serious Pirate
