First off I logged in with my regular character by accident and was quite happy to be standing there looking at my ships floating there in station.
Lighting on character looks great, runs surprisingly well for a tech demo.
Character controls need work, and i forsee local channel being filled with: wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
I found i would end up trying to walk while still in chat alot.But maybe thats just me and a combination of a bit of lag that missed out on the proper order of things.
Double click and walk is good and gets the point across. Camera controls are ok, i think if you added a camera pan with the middle click like in most 3d software packages that would be nice, rather than the zoom moving off to the side. You could control the interest of the camera with the pan control (a camera reset would then be needed for sanity sake, if its not there already)
They make sense, they made (less) sense before, people will get it.
Starting in station is nice, its more personal with your character.
And i think it adds to that breath-taking first flight, rather than your first login in a space ship.
Thats all for now, thanks
looks good, cant wait for the final product.
