Jumping from a system to another is one of the most awful things in the game: it looks like you leave a box and enter into another one.

It would be great to have some kind of short animation, even a 1 or 2 seconds one would do it, but it should not looks like it is an animation actually.

I think it should be a very high priority that would give a huge boost to immersion to EVE.

animations can be a great idea but I'm travelling a lot and I find a "short" animation of jumping will not be a very good idea, for the time we will loose. ugh

Yes, because YOUR immersion should be a very high priority for everyone, amirite?

It's not MY immersion, everyone would benefit from it.
And you still loose a couple of seconds to jump, what i say is just to cover that time with something better.
Do you understand what i mean?

How does one benefit from a delay in jumping?

Why not.

Playing some sort of small jump animation wouldn't cause any delay and shouldn't be a problem, unless you're really attached to those loading bars and ultra crappy can't-do-anything-for-a-few-seconds jump effects already in place and/or don't understand the concept of variable animation durations.

Oh jesus why it's so hard for you to understand?
Did you even read my previous post?!

I'm not proposing to add a delay, just to COVER the actual one with something better, since the transition from one system to anoter is NOT istant, it takes a couple of moments; what i'm saying is simply to cover that time with something better and smooter that give a better idea of the jump travel, instead of the 'box' feeling that we have now.

I don't get a 'box feeling' but if a < 1s animation is important to you then best of luck with your 'proposal'.

In a CCP video you can see a pretty nice way to solve the problem, it's like going through a door, very smoothly and naturally, not the crappy effect we have now.

Sacrifice warping animation then, and also skill training time, maybe sacrifice lock time too cause everything should be instant and maybe we should just get rid of the graphics all together and make it a spreadsheet.

I'm glad you guys got it :)
I can't understand why someone should dislike this, it would simply make the jump looks better, so why not?

A good, but not fancy, solution would be to:
1. Remove the loading bars
2. Don't make the UI switch off
3. Keep full UI functionality the entire time
4. Immediately after the bubble and gateflash, change INSTANTLY to the destination system. No black screen in between.
5. Have the camera INSTANTLY focussed on your ship. No starring at empty, random space.

Maybe even instead of the black screen they could add a small flash of bloom to mask everything.

Something, anything.

You call me names like that and yet I am the one ruining the game? I really don't understand why people get so personal about a difference of opinion on a subject that is highly unlikely to ever be implemented into the game in the first place. May I suggest you take some time away from the computer and get some perspective.

Your other suggestions show exacerbation and are puerile at best. Please try to remain subjective and not get carried away with raw emotion.

I've taken the liberty of reporting your personal attack as I do not think it is right to encourage people to communicate in the way you do ugh
