Anyone else find the docking/undocking thing annoying?

Annoying? The fact that it crashes my video driver every time... game breaking!

First, check that you're running the latest drivers for your video card. Once you've done this, please submit a bug report by clicking "Report Bug" from the F12 menu so that we can look into it.

Since the Devs are watching, I will say that I do like having more overview tabs. That new item WILL be used. Smile

You know, they said all this about Picasso. (Especially the "check your video drivers" bit!)

I've always found the camera angle to be inconsistent, and am always ready to rotate my view just to be able to click on the bookmarks there on my right-click, onscreen menu. So, maybe I should just let it run as it wants to and see what this is all about! (You're supposed to be using quick exit bookmarks, btw.)

I honestly wouldn't mind it, but there are a few major problems which for me personally ruin it.


The first one is the FOV when docking is WAAAAY to close to the ship. I find myself in vain trying to get the camera to back away from the ship. It's uncomfortable to watch, if the FOV was scaled back, and we are given an option to control the how close the camera is, would be really nice.


Second is that it happens every time I change ships, which again is pretty annoying. Even by it's namesake as a docking animation, I shouldn't really have to see the ship slow meander slowly in some arbitrary spot in a station. Specially if I need to fit multiple ships, or tweak ships, or if decide to be super picky and I can't choose between what ship I want to fly. (More of a personal problem but really.)




On a positive note, the Tac-Overlay is really becoming something, and the changes there are pretty fookin swell.

Comments that express specifically what you like and what could be better are exactly the kind of feedback the camera team needs on this feature. I recommend posting in the release feedback thread so they'll have the best chance to see it.

Okay, fine. I took the time out of my busy day to undock and allow my ship to free run out of the station to see this camera rotation debacle and my response is, come on, really? You want to complain about this? The eye-candy crowd is becoming a nuisance at this point; monocles, yellow skirts, bullet holes in the hull, SKINS (for gawd's sake) now the CAMERA just rotates WRONG? Lawzy lawzy. What would you do if you had a real problem?

What is telling is, anyone who's got half a brain uses quick exit bookmarks to leave stations they use a lot. If you're clicking on the screen immediately and dragging to a view clear of the station to get a clear spot to click on (bringing up that good old right-click menu with your bookmarks) the rotation stops IMMEDIATELY and is no obstruction, or interference with proper operation of the ship.

If you're NOT using quick exit BMs to leave station, one of these days you're gonna be sitting in your pod wondering, "How did THAT happen so fast?" Stop living on borrowed time and get smart with how you fly. If you did, you'd never see a camera rotation to become annoyed with.

Telling complaint after all, no?

Having been a part of the whole Saranen battle zone in recent memory I don't think that the docking animation is realistic. If it were realistic that ship would be going a LOT faster than that, possibly on fire while shedding pieces of itself, and likely almost slamming against a wall before stopping. But nope it just calming walks in like it just got back from a picnic on a nice sunny day. Roll

Nice, more unwanted FLUFF!


2-3 years ago a CCP developer spent time on making a docking animation. It was never implemented as "it didn't added anything worthwhile to the gameplay".

Look what we got now. Didn't asked for it. It's overly intrusive. It's repeated EVERY SINGLE FRIGGING TIME I CHANGE MY SHIP!

When I'm docked I do not need to see another animation of an docking ship/pod when I change ships.



CCP if you really MUST have a dumb fluff animation that adds nothing to the CORE game play, then please consider this:



==>IF Docking:
( Play animation: Docking);

==> IF Docked:
(Do Not Play animation: Docking);


And of course, when the animation ends it lands your camera view dab smack in the middle of the annoying adverts.
You really do your utmost best to get us annoyed and subsequently stop logging in do you?

And on top of that you delivered it as per usual with the standard CCP quality, rushed out, no quality control or anything close to that. When an indy company does this I smile and forgive, when a multimillion dollar company with over a decade of experience does this I just can describe this as pathetic.

The new docking animation makes me nauseous. Literally, not figuratively. I actually cannot look at the screen while I switch ships or I start to get queasy.

CCP should add more NPC 0.0 space to open it up and liven things up: the Stepping Stones project.

I don't know if this was intended but at the end of the docking cinematic the camera slowly focuses on the station billboard (which I hate). If you don't rotate the camera the station billboard is right in your face. I say remove both docking cinematic and station billboard.

Or give us the option to turn it off. (cinematic docking and billboards)
These new "features" you're giving us are garbage, come on CCP. Get back on WiS or something because this is the worst feature I've seen from you guys in years.

Docking, changing your ship and undocking again seems to be as fast as it was before, since you can do all of that during the docking animations. But the visual effect is still REALLY distracting. This is like the gong all over again.

Your "camera team" needs to be fired on spot. Shoddy work at best.
Fixing same issues (without success) for two years in row would get you kicked from work anywhere but CCP apparently.
Not gona list over and over the reasons, forums are full of salt for it.. read it goddamnit!

How can you interrupt it?
