The survey is actually very thourough in covering all aspects of the expansion, and it is very easy to indicate which details you like and dislike.


Nice, i didn't see it.

Done Smile

edit - And EVE has sound? again?

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.

An on/off button is far from a simple proposition in this case. While it may be acceptable (and coded that way from the start) to do without turret effects during high lag inducing activities like combat, that is a far different situation from an effect that is used often by everyone in the game... not only from a technical stand point but from a professional stand point. To simply have a blank screen is completely unacceptable to any game company, and would be ridiculed. An alternative would have to be developed and coded, tested, and finally implimented. It's not something that you can simply "do without".

I see you now have your employment at ccp. Based on what you write here, I understand you now have an insight into the code itself!!

If you are so intent on an immediate fix, and can't wait for the appropriate people to return from summer vacation, perhaps it is indeed time for you to take a short break. No one is going to make fun of you for doing so.

Short break! ... are you kidding me! The fact that ccp actually even says (Sorry we are on vacation!) that they actually puts vacation higher on their list tells me that ccp actually do not take this problem very seriously. Therefore, I believe there is long way to something being made ... made ​​proper means!

Ranger note also that I come with links to support what I write which you very rarely do. You make your own little reality world here in your many and loong posts - it almost tangent to spam. Why do you not like some of the others in here who also love this animation, write you love it on a line and then it's no longer - right?!?

It doesn't take much insightt to be able to read the information the Devs have already provided... although you do learn a bit when in constant contact with a piece of software over a decade.
So you believe in a ccp develop when he/she says, it is not an option since it is no longer possible to change! ... and this is the very same ccp developers who also told that it was not possible to make change to captain quarter Secret - for your eyes only! Look at post 6 .... Must say you are a bit naive Ranger!

Yes you should learn a little over 10 years Ranger - which I believe I have ... on / off over the past 10 years.


If you actually read the information, no one ever said it was impossible to change. They said the old effect was no longer there, and they do not choose to go a different path. They prefer to solve the issues with the current effect.

It's now going on a month, though.

Blizzard could hold a dev conference, rethink their entire core design philosophy, and release appearance armor sooner at this rate, in comparison.

I know what you are saying Ace (although we both know that's a bit of an exaggeration Smile) but bad decisions are usually the quick and easy ones. I'd prefer they take the time to fix things properly.

It does beg the question on whether CCP takes into consideration _any_ feedback - for good or for bad; or just blindly blazes ahead with whatever grandiose idea they feel is brilliant...

I didn't see anything in the survey allowing for comments on the animation or overall feelings about gameplay for that matter. maybe I missed it? The questions were mainly targeted towards style of play and background demographics I believe. Still-- it was worthwhile filling out.

There were actually a few places for comments as I recall, one page asking for comments on Odyssey features you liked the most, one for features you liked the least, and one more comment page at the very end for you to add anything else.

This is one of... or perhaps the absolute worst addition CCP ever conjured.

I can't believe I'm about to say this, but...

Jump animation is worst than ECM drones! Ahhh

I realize that it's not quite the same pronunciation from the developers. Was only to show you when they have done something ccp is very difficult to obtain by other thoughts. You know as well as I know how much fuss there was with cq. It was just a quick 5 minutes search I thought was ok ... but if it has caused you to misunderstand so I am very sorry. Blink

I myself am old developer and if I remember right, you have even written somewhere you are a developer. I remember that as a developer you ALWAYS get, even an easy task to sound .... oh, so difficult to do!!... just to cut it in a nutshell! You always try to give more time to do the job. I think I have never in my time stated that a task was oh so easy to make, even if it was easy.

I have to agree. Roaming is no fun anymore, the animation is far from beeing pretty and badly implemented.
Seems CCP is now just busy to pleasure the null/carebears. Have fun.

Well that's one way to get a biased survey results - everyone that hates the launcher or are unable to use it because of exceeding the laughable login limit are not running it. Well played CCP!

I wouldn't have seen it if I didn't read about it in this thread.

I filled in the survey, but there's no mention about the new launcher. Since I don't use it, I totally forgot to mention that I really dislike that thing. Too much info, crammed, can't use password auto-type, no log off button, c'mon.

Hate to say it too, but that's correct.

Having to fly in a game that drew me to it because it's space with plenty of beautiful Hubble like images, but now it has to be covered with anything else...yeah, it's t-h-a-t bad.

Why must people now fly and block the view as the alternative? Makes no sense.

Add to it, don't like the travel warp either. Want to see the stars, many many stars. Not some bluish wave from gate to gate. When I started the game years ago I marveled at the moons and the realism of them. The nebulas that was drawn across the sky. Pretty. Now the only time to view space without clutter is to be in some deadspace. The astronomer in me cries. Sad

I very much agree here! Ccp has over the years made ​​changes which I was also not particularly fond of. But it has been changes I could Adapt to. Gate animation is one we forced to experience and if my opportunity to Adapt is to look out the window, then it's time to take a break from EVE until the problem is resolved properly. For me "properly" = on / off option!

He wrote that he was taking a break, not that he was leaving period.

Matter of definition, I believe. If he takes a break because the jump animation and the jump animation doesn't change for, say, five years, I think it is pretty safe to say that he has left. :P

+1 that

Just confirming that I actually do get headaches now from an hour or two of roaming. Never used to happen. I too used to enjoy my wonderful trips through the Hubble-like star-scapes.
