Anyone else find the docking/undocking thing annoying?

I like it, however......

The camera should be static over the point where the ship will stop, it should then track the ship as it floats into position, I would actually like to see it floating in from further away and make the floating pure cosmetic, what I mean by that is that we should not in any way be blocked or stuck waiting on the ship floating into position, so make it float in over a longer period from further down the corridor but don't limit the players action as a result.

As for the billboards I have no clue what peoples issue is with them, my PC is crap and it runs them fine I can only assume your trying to run loads of clients on the same machine which personally I think should be against the rules anway.

So you're capable of understanding the concept of a person's PC hardware deviating from the norm in some way but not their physical bodies and brains?

You assume wrong. At least in my case.
The constant and very distracting flickering and motion outside the panels I have open to do stuff with (fitting screen, inventory, market, etcetera...) is annoying. To put it mildly.
That is beside the fact that what is shown is repetitive to the extreme. Have you ever watched the same advertisement hundreds of times voluntarily? right.....

Here I used to have a sig of our old Camper in space. Now it is disregarded as being the wrong format. Looking out the window I see one thing: Nothing wrong with the format of our Camper! Silly CCP......

I had an horrific vision, what if those billboards are here to soften us up, reading us for ingame AMD or AlienWare adds? Shocked

How does this all add to the advertised "PVP sandbox" ??? Guess that means I don't like it Blink better places to spend dev time imo

This just in: all visual effects development is a worthless waste of time.Lol

I thought MMO forums were bad but here we are complaining over docking/undocking animations.

I personally don't care. Looks neat.

You sound like that guy in college who complains that the guy in the front is watching Netflix on his laptop and how distracting it is for you.

Don't be that guy.

It sounds like "that guy" may have been on the autistic spectrum somewhere, but who knows.

Things such as ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia and autism all have a well documented association with these kind of sensory/attention issues.

For me it is a combination of a preference for seeing detail, a reduced ability to screen out unwanted sensory information, some random cross wiring between my senses and my pain processing hardware that causes visible light to be mildly painful and the fact that I am in a college lecture theatre which is already a massively anxiety and agitation causing scenario that I'm having to fight to get through. But obviously, from the outside I'm just some obnoxious ***** complaining in a lecture theatre.

It should be noted that I do have the ability to go into "the zone" in certain situations where the rest of the world melts away and none of this is an issue, but if I'm not in that zone I really don't perform.

I just ask that you take into consideration the degree to which "invisible" differences can cause prejudice, just like "visible" differences. Everyone, even the most sympathetic of us, will have issues with this because it's the way our brains work.

I try to work on the principle that everyone's life is hard and it's best not to assume any different when dealing with others.

Pretty much for the above by Bad Bobby stated reasons.

Yup, I too enjoy the new animation. I has had no impact on my process of docking and undocking. I dock and undock with aplumb. Even the ship switch animation doesn't impact me at all, I did a switch and was undocked before it came to rest and was in warp before the camera had a chance to even zoom out far enough I couldn't read my ship markings.
