Thanks I didn't see the Futurama one. It honestly is way better than my little ponies.

Best way to get people to use CQ is to license TV shows people like and put them on that screen.

Editing any game-files, including .bik files, is against EULA and can get your permabanned from EVE.

I would not suggest doing things like this.

This actually works.

I tried it with a Family Guy episode, and when I docked, there it was.

Tho that is true regarding the EULA, I guess. So I'll probably refrain from doing this in the future, but I don't see any fuss being made about it. I hope they make good use of this, as I want to see the TV screen used more, it's completely underutilized and that is kind of stupid, frankly. Well, pretty much everything about CQ is underutilized and underwhelming. Needs moar all.

The same must work for .gifs on the gate billboards. Maybe I'll put a few personal reminder 'to-do' notes to cycle through the billboards. YARRRR!!

I will finally be able to watch this in CQ and make it at least a bit less sucky then. Would love to have several clips like these in perma loop.

An an edit, coming to think of it, if we can buy these as pets to dance in CQ I would totally waste my money on the NEX store, honest.

I wonder if the system somehow supports symbolic links to streaming content so CCP could broadcast the alliance tournament to everyone's screen. This might KILL CCP's bandwidth, but it would be a good way to get people to watch if they don't spend a lot of time on the forums.

Yeah. I couldn't think of a better way to spend my time and endure lag than to watch a rigged tournament.

We can add a custom playlist to the jukebox, would be awesome if we could add a custom playlist to the CQ holo tv.

Would also be cool if we could sit down and zoom in on the screen so it takes up the majority of the view, and use it as an in game web browser.

Of course it's quicker and simple to use external tools, but cool none the less.

Come on, all these years you've spent with P42ALPHA, the least you could do is sit down with her, have a drink and watch some Futurama. She does your dirty work, I assume, show her some love. ;D

Oh hey, I just thought of a really cool idea CCP could implement.

Imagine for a second, the entirety of Incarna has been released.

You're chatting with some friends and gazing through a station window out in... a bar, doing dance emotes or what-have-you. Time passes and you invite them to your CQ.

The (let's say) 3 of you sit down and flip on an episode of... I don't know, Dexter. You're chatting, having a good time, but then Corp chat blows up: Your POS is under attack and the WH entrance is 10 jumps away.

You press pause, push your friends out THE DOOR, activate your Hurricane and undock.

6 hours later, after having triumphed over your enemy, you dock up, repair your ship and sit down.

Although you're alone, your show is still paused at the exact place it was at when you left.

So you press play, and continue with joyous Corp banter as you watch the highly anticipated season finale.

Tada, CQ just got more awesome.

Well, so far, I reckon this one has been the best by far... It'd be a hard one to beat, that's for sure.

If they implemented video streaming to your CQ that would be AWESOME. Almost as good as ship spinning + a functional hanger. Especially so if they allow the "Invite a friend over to your Second Life Home" function to allow communal video viewing. Ofcourse this also opens opertunitys for when the player is not watching a show in his CQ to be screening advertisments to generate aditional revenue along with the usual Eve stuff on the TV (advertisments must be silent). Would be awesome too if CCP enforced that the adverts be eve orientated in some way but still had product placement for the revenue (They should do this for the space billboards too imo, its free money that doesnt involve agravating your userbase.

Anyone get a dev reply to see if they mind us doing this? Hell im going to rack some up for next time im bored.

Honestly though i cant see any devs cracking it at this, just a... hmm ill refrain from saying how just incase, but its not a mod! just an addition.

To answer this, ask yourself the following question: Is it something fans and subscribers enjoy and want?

If the answer is yes, the devs have a problem with it.
