Can we PLEASE get an option to turn off in-station billboards?

I think they're really cool actually, especially so because it's not just NPC or fictional stuff. It's also a really good incentive for CCP to work and expand on corp logos. Those logos (and tickers as well) are in dire need of some love.

I'd like the option to remove them mainly because some of them feature bright explosions and since it happens in the corner of the eye, it pulls my attention to them constantly.

The very sun of heaven seemed distorted when viewed through the polarising miasma welling out from this sea-soaked perversion, and twisted menace and suspense lurked leeringly in those crazily elusive angles of carven rock where a second glance shewed concavity after the first shewed convexity.

Rotate the camera a bit, problem solved.

The default docking camera places a billboard at the top right corner. So you have to turn the camera away from it after docking. But not too far away because then there's one on the other side as well.

The option to turn them off is not a lot to ask for.

Meh, dun worry, at some point, not too far into the future they'll disappear as it will take ccp too much resources to maintain it over every new build. Like the jukebox, evelopedia, EON, the old camera,static background etc. etc.

Really? Do people just enjoy complaining about ****? They're player created ads. If you don't like looking at them just turn your view.

I am fully on board with a longer rotation of ads.

I just......I just cannot understand WHY this was put in. Not only does it look bad, it literally lags my computer and boots me off, and then I have to go thru a complete reboot to get back on. Who ever thought this was a great idea.....I swear......Please remove pretty please CCP?

I too would like the option to disable these billboards. They are distracting. Also I have heard that the video itself is constantly streamed and not part of the normal game install. If so this will greatly increase the bandwidth used by each client. Does anyone know if that is true?

I love those billboards.
Makes stations more alive.
I like the way CCP is taking in this regard.
You people need to spend less time station spinning and whining and more time actually playing.

I'd like them to be played less often, rather than removed.

Wait they did what? LOL

I haven't been reading the patch notes or got around to watching the fanfest videos yet. Been too busy to play.

Did they really put the CQ TV in the station hanger? Lol I gotta log in when I get home and see this.

They are pretty annoying to look at or have running in the background for any length of time. Would be nice if they displayed interesting stuff, maybe something in relation to what the person in the station is doing at that moment... they're meant to be ads, right?

So when someone opens the fitting screen on an Ishtar, the ad screen could show the prices of drones on the market or something like that :D
