Missing Cargo Warning

You are about to undock without the cargo required for your in-progress courier mission, Incriminating Evidence. Are you sure you want to undock now?

Just more evidence of dumbing the game down. Still eventually people will not need to use their brain as the game will do most of it for them.

Why would you undock with incriminating evidence?

In my defence the reason I got this message is that I picked up a mission, the goods wouldn't fit in the ship I was flying, so I went to market to buy a bigger cargo hold. I saw the message and thought, "I bet some poor developer at CCP spent ages putting this feature in, and they probably think it's really nice."

Whoever that developer is, just beware of Ferengi Rule of Acquisition #245: No good deed goes unpunished. Or alternately, that one about, "Feed a man a fish, you've gained a dependent. Teach a man to fish, you've lost a customer."

Don't think much of your powers of deduction.


I just hate to see games getting easier, it happened to WoW and now this game seems to be heading down the same path.

So by your logic, SIRI from the iphone, is the real skynet. It is just gonna make us dumb, from helping too much. Then easily destroy us.

How did you find out about this error? No doubt you were extensively testing the system, not just being a noob...

Well its a nice addition. Really after doin those missions for few hours those things happen as u loose concentration. Its really not dumbing down, u have to put the items again in your cargo as u did before, so nth really changes. Missions needs to be a bit simplified and made more interesting cos atm they are in a really poor state.

Of course it's dumbing it down. Won't be able to jump in the ship fly off on a mission get there and discover you've forgot the item. Done that a few times myself in the past, usually because I've been a bit lazy at reading the mission info.


Missions are simple enough now, make them simpler just makes them boring and nothing much more than an isk cash-cow.

Seriously, your complaining about the game getting easier yet your spending your time running courier missions, COURIER missions. Becasue flying from one place to the next was really testing your skills in the first place.

People think before you speak, these changes are making the game simpler not easier, tool tips to show gun range save time, reminding you to bring cargo makes life allot nicer becasue flying back through gates allot sucks balls.

Well as he did not specify which type of missions in that last line. I took it to be a general comment about missions especially as you can't make courier missions simpler except for making them shorter and have less weight to carry.

Lol, I don't even do courier missions these days, only ever done courier missons as part of a set of missions in the past from the most combat giving agents I could find.

All these changes to save time as you call it, makes the game easier. Trouble is the dumbing down of a game happens over a long period of time and it's the accumulation of the changes that makes the biggest impact.

i dont mean to simplify the core of the missions. But things like the new UI where u dont have to constantly open and close your journal and this thing now about remembering ppl to put the cargo. But about the core like shooting and other things should make much more random (random spawns, random ships and why not some random gate camps of npcs where they ll try to scram your transport ships).
