It's November 4th; that's now five months since this was implemented, and still no update or resolution.

I would recommend that anyone interested in the progress of this should message CCP Sisyphus and request an update.

Why a switch on/off? Because the new animation doesn't add anything to gameplay and it's graphically annoying. In other words, it's worse than bad: it's useless. Simple as that.     _ - Kina Ayami_

More importantly it was another patch day and still no on/off button. The barfing will continue until morale improves.Ugh

One of my two remaining accounts comes up for renewal in December. Don't make me let it lapse like the other two before it, CCP. And no one will get my stuff ~~

CCP, there are off buttons for ship explosions, missile effects, turret effects, etc. "Immersion" does not seem to be harmed by those. So, [u]please[/u] give us a persisting off button for the jump gate and autoscan visuals.

One of my last ups.

My remaining account will be down within the next two days and I am not willing to renew it, I have waited long enough and there is no point to maintain an account if I don't play with it.

And like the previous player, no one will get my stuff =) I will let it sleep as long as necessary, maybe one day CCP will finally understand that giving options is not a bad idea.

Removing obsolete signature... You just lost time to read that =)

And that swallowing their pride in favor of their players' needs is not a "cop out."

This topic needs to be first forever until CCP will do big favor and allow turn off some crappy animations in the game which focuses on different things.

Maybe Even more morons leave if we implement mandatory dying sequences every time a NPC pirate looses his ship, crew and life!
I like the jump animation...especially during blopsing

An option would be cool for people with low-end computers, but I like the new animation, only problem I see is sometimes looks like broken glass/just a blank screen. Would like to see those bugs fixed, that is all.

You like it, and that's fine. But if that's going to be your sole argument against having an off switch, then you need to answer one question: how does the option to disable the animation negatively impact your experience? In other words, in what way does someone else being able to turn off the animation locally affect your enjoyment of the game?

If you can give a real answer to that question, then we can have a discussion. Otherwise, you're not really adding anything to the conversation, other than slinging insults, and that is hardly going to give any credibility to your position.

I received the subscription reminder, so this is my last up.

Still, I took the time to go into Singularity, just in case that an option was already implemented and going to be released with Rubicon, but I found nothing.

I also went and tested the jump animation on the test server.

Nothing has improved.

My 30 days came and went, no changes to the useless animations, and no additional response from CCP in this thread.

However, I did tweet one of the devs about this, (who's name I will not mention here) and their response was:

"Check the settings on your HTFU console, its not changing, learn to live with it."

So, I bid you all farewell. And, in a way, I'm glad these changes are here to stay, it makes the game look less like the one I began playing in 2006.

What's more, with the general attitude of CCP and its community representatives, they make it much easier to completely quit and never come back.

I guess you could say I'm "crossing the Rubicon" LOL

Peace everyone, and fly safe!

CCP, are you really expecting this issue to go away if you wait long enough? Oops

CCP knows for every one pilot that leaves due to this (and any other issues) that there are fanatical null sec pilots that will purchase multiple alt accounts to train for larger and larger numbers to crash a combat node if the situation does not go in that player's direction. Or another round of bots to crunch asteroids and ice...

Just close your eyes when you jump. Take a long blink. OMG no animation.

Been there, doing that. Not an acceptable "workaround", because we all know that is for bugs. Thank you for not reading the thread.

Oh, I see, you are saying these features are actually bugs.Smile Thank you for your contribution and thus your bumpage. Pirate

Bumping for a "I prefer the new way" post.

80+ pages of the same four people posting. Impressive troll of resources guys.

Now, rubicon is less than a week away, suggest you group up and move onto moaning about trivial things there like command ships or interceptors or other stuff the majority likes (therefore you will **** and moan endlessly about).

There are good ships,

And wood ships,

And ships that sail the sea

But the best ships are Spaceships
