For those not aware, CCP are adding a first person perspective as a camera option. It is now on SISI.

Thank You CCP, so beautiful reminds me why I fell in love with space games in the first place.

Competition in the industry sometimes does wonders.

Now I am. Thanks!

This will be beautiful.

Here I used to have a sig of our old Camper in space. Now it is disregarded as being the wrong format. Looking out the window I see one thing: Nothing wrong with the format of our Camper! Silly CCP......

Well, i would like a more engaging battlecam. A periscope style so you could see it from a real battle perspective.

To quote Lfod Shi

The ratting itself is PvE. Getting away with it is PvP.

Very cool, thanks for posting it. Looks like it's being controlled by a Joystick.

Now it just needs a small screen included in the corner (Picture in Picture) showing the standard out of ship view with an option to switch between them whenever desired.

Its cool, but the camera changes are causing distortion on the edge of the monitor. The game is practically unplayable on mutlimonitor setups on sis right now.

Funky but given the nature of how EVE works (weapons on turrets, angular velocity etc) not really that useful. Also 1 second server ticks keep EVE from being an actual "flight sim" in that regard.

Its very buggy for me. Keeps flipping views randomly and whiting out.

TBH, I think the only real use for the feature is for making movies. Its not very practical in combat even when it works properly.

What will happen if you try to use it in Jita.

This was exactly my first thought totally in agreement here.

Regarding bugs, its not working well yet. CCP have been pushing a lot of content quite fast recently and QA seems to have taken a hit because of that. However the test server is after all the test server so I am not holding that against anyone.

Space engineers just got actual planets. But EVE happens to actually run on my computer.


But really space engineer would replace my minecraft time really.

Oh, I perfectly understand, Hal Morsh — a mission like this requires courage, skill, and heroism… qualities you are clearly lacking. Have you forgotten you're one of the bloody immortals!?

Good to have options, but that's not how I play.

I tend to see docking at Jita as a bit more like this .

Now, let's see your Veldnaught pull some Yo-yo's and S-turns with various hull-mounted camera shots enabled!Twisted
