Hi CCP!

The seamless transitions are a great idea and I really like them so far.

The undocking animation is missing the ship actually doing what the feedback text shows. When the ship is undocking, it should fire thrusters and start moving, don't you think? It would complete the picture ;-)

Ship -> Pod transition is almost perfect. The tiny feedback texts remind me of a Star Trek ship going down :-) It's really great. The "Hull Critical" warning is shown a bit too early in my opinion. because in many fights you will enter structure, but won't die right away.

At last, I've heard some other players complaining that the new stargate jump animation makes them nauseus. Making the animation optional in "ESC" menu would probably help them ;-)

Agreed, blinky lights and weird sound is a bit odd when you undock :)

Ship firing thrusters, starting to move towards the opening and then screen fading to black would be just perfect.
