My main complaint on the captains quarters is the longer processing time docking/undocking. I'm indifferent to the lack of spinning ships.

I would prefer the faster loading hangar view most of the time, Especially when docking only for pickup/dropoff - the captains quarters loading lag really affects the 2nd instance who is only mining!.

I would like to explore the new and improved captains quarters, but being single-player I will be bored of that within a few logins and want to be rid of the lag (FPS is ok, it just takes a bit to load and affects FPS 2nd instance during the load), so I will just default captains quarters to off.

When multilayer walk-in-stations is implemented, I probably would want CQ to show up on initial login, and then resume its off default when docking/undocking because I won't be into the idle socialization and won't want the longer load time, but I would want to be able to turn it on (maybe an exit capsule button or shortcut key) without too much hassle.

I really don't know if the spinning ship will really load faster than the captains quarters though. I came onto the game after incarna was released. I would love faster loading stations when docking only for pickups, dropoffs, or agent interatction though.

Aside from the overview issues, right now I can't see my ship in hanger, and every time I try an undock it makes me pick a ship (I've already picked a ship). I select my ship. I click ok or whatever. It goes through the progress bar of undocking, then dumps me right back in my hanger (without being able to see my ship) saying "undock aborted).


Not sure what that's about.

They removed something which should never have been removed, then put it back after months of screaming about it and when they do they're praised to heaven and back by a community with an attention span of 30 seconds.

How easy it is to please people, take something away, give it back, receive praise Roll

i almost got a shock when my Apoc loaded up like that in hangar view today, is it me or is it more smooth and better looking than the old ship spinning?

I think that from a RP perspective CQ is the right direction...

I vote for CQ button should be as far away from undock button as possible, you would´t put Airdock next to Aircon right?Shocked
or Eject next to ECM.... Ugh

I don't know how well Eve can bring in the common masses without driving out the current subscriber audience. Star Wars Galexies attempt to do so was a complete and utter failure. The masses need dumbed down games catering for their short attention spans, 'NOW' mentality, and somewhat lower IQ. Glorified 3D chatrooms may not destroy Eve if they avoid anymore spining ship mistakes, but it probably will be a complete waste of time on the part of the devs. If the walk-in-stations is to be something more than something that gets explored a couple times and the shut off to remove the lag, they will need to be something more than glorified chat rooms, which even would suck as that because the limited number of free clothing & appearance items and the limited selection and extreme overpriceness of the NEX - asking for total failure and a wasting of developer time. The CQ graphics are quite good though.

Tell Hilmar that I appreciate the humble pie. Sorry you guys had to axe a bunch of staff in Georgia. I'm very critical of organizations that think their smarter than their customers. But I'm very happy CCP made the leap of faith it took to realize what a mess they made and make it right. Now if we can get Netflix to return online and mail delivery for the same price as before, the universe will be balance again.

I'm one of the 5000 or so that quit over the lame way CQ was implemented and the in-game purchase crap. I'm back now that ship spinning is back, but there ain't a chance in hell that I'm spending my hard earned scratch on a $65 monacle.

While it's true that there is no game like Eve, I think it's pretty clear that your customers will walk away rather than be disrespected.

Lesson learned.

C'mon. What do you want. Keep harping on them? They eff'd up. Ate crow and fixed it. If your dog poops on the rug, do you keep rubbing it's nose in it?

Took some guts for Hilmar to fess up that he screwed the pooch. And I praise him for that. Will he be an arrogant arse again? Probably

Looks like CCP's spindoctors did their homework! Ship is spinning again. I actually like CQ; but there are occasions -- like being able to fly a new, shiny ship, but being too chickensh*t to take it out yet -- that I like to see myself spin about in my new jacket.
