Dear all,

I have read in the dev answers threat that it is not possible to rehaul the pos mainly because the art team has stuff to do for a whole year. I am sure there are a few other things of course.

The only thing that could be keeping the art team busy for a year is Incarna, and I want to say this clearly: Players have been demanding an overhaul of POS for more than 5 years.
It is far more important that station environment. it is affecting a huge part of the player base, unlike stations which are only for leisure when there is nothing else to do.

Why are you wasting time on something that will impact 10% of the players in a miscellaneous way and leaving something that is severely impacting at least 60% of the players?

Do you realize that the difficulty of handling the game is among the main reasons that stops many players from joining after their trial is the extreme unnecessary complexity of interface based things, such as UI, POS, skill training among so many things.

Virtual goods is an extra source of income when you have a large enough player base on a very stable and accessible game, it's a luxury. the most important aspect of any game is to have a user friendly handling/interface!

I suggest that CSM raise this issue to CCP.

The only thing thats keeping the art team busy is World of Darkness and possibly Dust.

Yes, I think DeBingJos has it right. CQ is only a symptom of what is going on in the background. It looks to me as if CCP are trying to kill two, or more, birds with one stone. Buff EVE and at the same time reuse the artwork for Dust etc. No wonder the art dept. are busy!

I don't think the artwork of dust can be used for EVE, at least not in any significant way.

The other thing I can think of is making the Nex store items. which would be the case only if CCP has the most ******ed financial advisers ever, trying to profit from micro transactions instead of do a half decent job at marketing and increasing the subscriber base.

Eve has it's own art team. It's split 50/50 between Incarna and FIS stuff.

What do you expect? CCP is an Icelandic company and you must have seen what their banks managed to do to the economy of Iceland.

Where did you get this info? This would be very strange as they even use carbon technology for WoD.

Art people are much easier to share than code-people.

I have nothing to add to this conversation but I just wanted to say that I think your avatar is awesomely creepy DeBingJos.

Thank you very much. I tried to make it creepy to draw the attention away from my crappy pvp-skillz.
