Agree hundred percent. Please add an option to turn off the station TV screen.

Too much of a good thing. Concur. I don't run strobe lights in my living room either, if that's any consolation.

There just bad implemented, bad positions, size and copy-paste.

They should be different sizes, putted on walls, and show different videos.

Now they look as some pre-alpha thing, and not fitting into station interiors, im sure CCP will fix those issues.
My advice? Make them more like those concept undock ads from last year fanfest art panel

I wouldn't mind them so much if they weren't repeating every 5 minutes. Put in an ad rotation that lasts at least an hour and I'll be happy.

Maybe if we can show something interesting on it instead of the 3 same video's in a loop.

I bet if it allowed you to watch something with 18+ material you be ship spinning more then ever Blink

Outside of station and at gates would be preferable to 2 of the things inside the station.

Replace it with a looped video of a 360 degree pan around my beautiful head and you've got yourself a compromise

You manage to stick that ego of yours into EVERYTHING!
Seriously. I read all the material when the idea came up, but maybe not close enough. I thought these would be the regular billboards redesigned. Instead of the bogus "This Is New Eden" news that doesn't amount to anything - and the Bounty of the Week picture, which is a load of horse puckey, I thought we were going to get larger, holographic billboards. (If Mario Kart can do it, guys.) I thought corps and alliances would be able to purchase space on those, and we'd get to view them as we aligned, or outside stations...OUTSIDE...stations...NOT in my hangar.

I really can't see me as a capsuleer having advertising foisted on me in my hangar. It's bad enough to get that cycling ani-rama about SCOPE and BOUNTY GUYS and INCURSIONS with no control over it in my quarters. It's like having a chimpanzee with a paint-loaded squirtgun continually redecorating my PAD.

Enough already.

I don’t understand why they were added. Did someone ask for them?
#15 - 2016-04-29 23:14:20 UTC
Tacky marketing attempts, annoying, irritating, stupid and I'm out of words, or adjectives, or whatever the right word is for all that. In an earlier thread I threatened to quit if CCP didn't shut the nasty things down and I did; showed them, too. And I stayed quit for, I don't know, it was over thirty hours, I know. Taught them a good lesson.

But this is just more of the same, change for change's sake, just more flashy stuff to keep the kids attention. I realize this is a dynamic, evolving sandbox but a touch of stability wouldn't hurt anything. There are aspects of this game I haven't yet explored, but just from reading patch notes the mechanics of my future endeavors have swapped ends several times and will most likely change again before I enter my first worm hole, or build a command center or try to kill an Onyx.

I quit watching commercial TV several years ago due to the offensive, in your face marketing and I see no reason to watch it here.

Please, give us a switch to turn these things off.

Seems to me the best way to get rid of them is to, wait for it, turn your field view away from it. Tada! Its turned off.

Don't go ruining some perfectly good ***** fuel by injecting logic into the fray.

What's your next suggestion? like......Undock?!?!?

I think they are kinda neat. More variety please, but honestly guys if you can spend 5 min writing a complaint post, you
can turn your field view so you are not staring at it.

Can't say that I like them very much at all. Add some multicolored lights, mirror ball, Donna Summers and we have a 70's era disco.

Seriously, If we are to have billboards as Advertising tools, make them relevant and available as a service to capsuleers.
CCP loves their isk sinks, charge corps/alliances a fee for a 5-8 second advert. one caveat, turn down the brightness / flashy a bit. becomes distracting.


Civil discourse is uniquely human. After all, when is the last time a pride of lions and a herd of water buffalo negotiated SOV over a watering hole? Never. Someone either gets their ass kicked or eaten. At the end of the day someone holds SOV.
