You did not know that CCP Guard was not just A god, but THE god?

I do not think a rifter sacrifice will suffice, it should be at least a Nyx.

Much like the Log off Timer sounds you cannot turn off, CCP will ignore the players negatively effected by this.

At least you can turn off sound.

CCP, Please add a toggle.

CCP is full of idiots.
I never scan for this anomalies and other cosmic sigs, why I need always to see this useless for me effect and load my processor with useless effects?
I DO NOT NEED this scan effect after every jump, especially in fleet, especially if I never use this anomalies and signatures.

Make ability to turn off this scan effect because this overlay button on scan didn't work and not turn it off.

And like people told, this all good for your boss presentations but not for everyday and people who REALLY PLAY this game, because we all know CCP dev never play in eve every day.

I don't know about them being idiots, they've gotten this far. I just don't understand these changes. When I'm not interested in scanning, just don't show me scanning. Why shove it down our throats. I'm not a huge fan of mini games or camo ships either... but that's another thread entirely.

I'll just leave it at I simply don't like this expansion.

I'd love to be able to turn off the scanning overlay completely but still always display all the sites in space. ;)

Our current plan is to leave it as-is for a few weeks and then see if it's still bothering people. It's very hard in advance to separate the things that will annoy people for a week and then stop being an issue from the things that will persist in annoying people forever. If you look at the initial feedback for the new font, for example, there was a near-riot when it was deployed - but if you go back and look at the old font now it's horrible.

Can you make it red and give it a low humming sound as it sweeps? Big smile

I think its cool, it reminds people that there is stuff to scan and explore, also the scan animation brings something fresh to the screen...

We need a font, any font. 95% of the time we don't need a system scan. So there's that.

Excellence is not a skill, it's an attitude.

Is it possible to actually scan the system whenever I want and not wait for the ship to scan it ?

For example, I cleared all anomalies and signatures and I have nothing on scan for 10 min now. Can't unignore, can't refresh or do anything.

If I change the ship, all anoms/sigs disappear as well. have to wait...how long ?

Every... Single.... Jump.... I know you are proud of your new feature but is it really necessary to make my screen flash every 20 seconds during a long trip? I've only been back in game about an hour and a half and I cringe every time I see this animation. I'll give you that I thought "this is neat" to myself as I left a station for the first time ans saw it. But seriously, it sucks.... I'd much prefer to see it when called upon.

Please give me a way to turn it off or better yet, make it go away unless I decide to do a manual scan. Thanks!


Mass exodus of subscription is the only language developers understand.

I don't particularly like my beautiful stars and nebula being littered with target reticules showing non-probed sites.

I think it is a great addtion and helps to remind people that there are things we cannot see that they can find. +1 for making EVE a better game.

It's really nice, for once or twice, however I have seen it 10+ time, and it's start to get annoying.
Please get a button to switch it OFF.

It seems that you try to force us for exploration, however many of don't care about exploration at all.

Agreed on the off button option. If we're not interested in scanning on certain pilots, why inundate us with the information constantly and repeatedly.

Don't worry if there's gonna be a riot it won't be about the scanner but about a certain new employee
This is my signature. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.  Without me, my signature is useless. Without my signature, I am useless

Well I have not even finished to download the patch and already hate it. - Like some said, the first time a lot of things look neat, but even at the presentation I thought, "hmm, I am doing a lot of fast paced distribution missions to get faction missions and standings and that is like 12 missions and 140 jumps the hour ... some jumps just 5 seconds apart and every time this damn scan"

The same goes for the jump tunnel effect, I will really enjoy and love it on 1 jumps to missions, into fights, exploring and so forth, but during trade actions, distribution missions etc... its just a hell of annoying.

An option needs to be there, even if it is 'hit "space" to abort/interrupt' if you don't want it to be able to take it out completely.

Flashy crap no-one needs and is just annoying over time is what killed a lot of games - functionality first, effects an option. hardcore players will always choose speed and efficiency over graphic effects - and those are the ones populating the world and make it go round.

First thing on many games is setting graphics and res to max high and disable all effects, I hate a cluttered screen.

And I thank the design goods for the transparency option ++++++++++

This.

It is too much. Give the analyze button back for system scanning without probes.

The fact is you guys need to stop cramming stuff down people's throat and give them the option from the get-go.

Why is a valid opinion on day 1 of an expansion worth nothing?

P.S. the unified inventory still sucks just like it did day 1

OP:

Don't expect for it to be changed, removed, or to have an option to turn it off. CCP doesn't like criticism of their product.

I try to think of it like this:

To them, I'm not a customer. They are absolute GODS, and can never be questioned.

I'm paying them for the privelege to play their game.

That might help get you through the motion sickness...

Wait until they get their first ADA lawsuit for inducing seizures...

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short. But scream it at them in Esperanto, because life is also terrifying and confusing.
