Has anyone that wears aviators in game noticed that the reflection in your sun glasses is not what your character is looking at? Go into your CQ's and check it out. Look at the view screen - see what is playing - then look at your character face on and you'll see that what is playing is not playing in the reflection of your characters sun glasses.

Nah mate, I was in my CQ looking at my ship when I noticed it wasn't being reflected in my sun glasses. So I walked around and realized that the reflection is not a reflection at all.

That's because real reflections are processor intensive and pretty much indistinguishable from a flat reflective texture. Its pointless to do, especially when the environment you're modelling is already extremely detailed.

Also, yeah, you should get out more if you care about this.

DDO has real-time reflective mirrors, I remember thinking they were cool Lol


Edit, and was more poking fun that you can't leave your room yet, and ccp might should open that door some day, after they fix it so their window opens properly that is P

They're not actually sunglasses, they're portals into the Abyss

Very interesting debate about sunglasses and reflects in real time for a character living in a spaceship POD (swimming in his own dejections) or eventually in some CQ's.

It's like those dudes/galls using sunglasses at night or in dancing clubs...a very nice psychology study case.
