I'd like to turn off the CQ SCOPE video audio please. Even if I walk out to the observation deck, I hear it at full volume with only a change in the Right/Left balance.

It's also on repeat.

In several clients.

I'm afraid what I will find if I undock. You didn't do something silly like, I dunno, adding a gong noise to kills, right?

Something to consider for Project Discovery: Make the sample pictures when you hover over one of the solutions open below the solution, not to the side. The solutions are aligned horizontally and when I hover over one of the solution hexagons, the magnified version obstructs other accessible solution hexagons further to the right/left in a given horizontal solution line. I need to move my mouse into an area where it does not hover over one of the solution hexagons in order to be able to access other hexagons. That's not great.

My ridicule, heavy criticism and general pale outlook about your or CCP's ideas is nothing but an encouragement to prove me wrong. Give it a try.

Ingame settings menu -> audio tab -> advanced audio settings (need to select it) -> turn down the UI Interaction

Not sure what else is muted that way but at least the annoying bong sound is gone.

Some tweaks to the Project Discovery UI is def needed.

The Zoom is frustrating, make it say shift or ctrl to zoom.. not hold but click to activate and deactivate..

Also the rewards look like terrible grind, especially since you can not cash in anything after a lot of work..

and the consensus accuracy offset is a bit frustrating.. Especially the total random guessed ones

The camera is broken again. Before this patch, when using the new camera, I could use Alt+1 to re-center the camera after accidentally panning. Now when I use Alt+1 to reset the camera, it zooms in as if I used "Look at my own ship."

I can't test this new camera for you in this state. I'm reverting to old camera.

Ship killed animation: so-so, too blinky for most people.
The gong sound is bad though.
Please add option to disable the gong.

How to disable the Gong and all other useless sounds in the UI ... and potentially some useful ones as well, I cannot tell.

1/ Stop forcing us to use the new camera. It's broken and unusable as it is.
2/ Add an option to remove camera inertia. I have no idea why you added this, but it's not a good thing.

You should have waited a few more days. This patch is half-baked.

* allow us to disable the gong. It's unnecessary.

* the new camera interactions are very flashy but unhelpful. i don't need the camera swing to add an extra layer of 'excitement' to the game. On the contrary, the pan should be smooth and graceful so i can focus on playing. the new camera effects and mouse interactions are disruptive.

* some ships now show too many slots. The slots can't be filled but they appear anyway.

* some modules don't show up when in space.

* importing a hitherto supported fit from EFT into EVE now gives some error messages. Some modules are no longer recognized. annoying.

On balance, I think it's safer for me to stay docked until you sort out the freaky camera swing and modules issues. Bob alone knows what other problems are lurking to be discovered.

Please hold off on releasing half-finished patches. It's a great game, don't abuse it.

The new buddy list has now just killed part of the game.
No more being able to hunt your targets down as easy, this is just result in people camping hubs and pipes more or leaving the game.

The animation before that (blinking and then disappearing) was good. Why do they make it worse is beyond my level of comprehension.

Someone asked in the test server subforum, here's the thread with the reasons they gave: https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=471406

No, it's "inactive" client muting. This option lets you mute specific kinds of sounds for when you don't have the Eve window selected.

In the Display and Graphics tab, if you turn off the various camera options and change the slider a bit more towards "stiff," it pretty much looks like the old camera.

This is a known issue, this movement should be toggleable with the camera bobbing toggle.

I'm logging in now to check but if this hasn't been changed it's the same thing I've commented on repeatedly in the test server feedback thread...YUP it's the same and it's nauseating,

When in station, if you disable camera bobbing the background stops moving up and down but the ship itself continues to go uuuppppp anndddd dooooowwwnnnn and uuuupppppp annndddd dooowwwwnnnn. Nothing in the options makes it stop and with the load station environment option removed I guess I'll have no other choice now than to cover my entire screen with windows when docked up to prevent getting sea sick. Would be nice to know if anyone ever paid any attention to it in the feedback thread since other issues received responses yet this one never did even though I mentioned it multiple times in more than one thread.

Doesn't remove it. The bold font wasn't just for show ;)

But it's still not what it was. I don't need lag in camera movements. I doubt anyone needs lag in camera movements.

Would ask if it was possible to return the ability to remove the 'Station environment' option, For those of us that have a need to control our Graphics loading, Removing this option was not a cool move on behalf of CCP. underhanded and picky tbh.

Finding you now have to endure howling cooling fans due to sheer graphics load when trading in station between several accounts only brings about the realisation of how far detached from the player base CCP really is, Not user friendly, and really was not a required move on the part of CCP or is this part of the NEW way of doing things, Force players out of multi boxing accounts simply due to sheer graphics loading.

Humanity is the thin veneer that remains after you remove the baffled chimp.
