Why is it so empty inside the stations? Only evidence of someone actually being at the sation is a name under the guest tab.

Any ideas on how to make stations feel more alive and inspiring?Rolling Eyes

I would of though it to be more of a bustling docking bay area with other players ships visible (no, not all 130 docked ships at once!) with passages to various station services, a bar to mingle in etc.

Not the first time this has been mentioned? Shocked

Seeing other ships docked would be nice, they don't even have to be real peeps.

I like the idea of bars Razz, These could be chat rooms that are specific to the station and not local, where ppl could mingle offer services, etc.

The reprocessing plant could have ppl with good standings to the station and good processing skills offer their services for the reprocessing of ore and scrap for those who don't have good standings at a price agreed between the two party’s etc.

Missions & Escrow could be seen as the Bar where underhanded deeds and black market trading goes on.

about the bar thing you mean just like in freelancer??

All very true regarding stations, and the bar ideas good.Smile

Shame we cant have a cabin, you could check the markets, buy and sell in nicer suroundings, put a few kill mails or pics of your ship on the walls Smile

Maybe have a couple of rooms, all the coding could be off server, just stored on your pc and the data for the markets or research could be collected as normal, just displayed in a differant enviromentQuestion

Excellent ideas ... chatrooms specific to stations with additional functions would be very good: like gambling, games, entertainment hubs and such. And yep would be great to have the internal station environment showing some other docked ships and other players docking and updocking from time to time. This is the kind of stuff Eve really needs from future patches and expansions and such to stay fresh and interesting.

*Claps enthusiasticly* i'd love to see other ships in the docking bay. NPC or not does'nt matter, i would just add to make a station a bit more alive..

Oooohhhh...and perhaps even some workers welding away on a ship, people walking to ships, ships exiting dock....more life would be good.

What would be even better, was that when you entered stations (or landed on a planet) it would become a 3rd person view, and you could travel around the station...hmm...guess that would be an entirely seperate game...hehe :)

I pretty much like the idea of docking and undocking ships you can see. Just like mentioned before: there is no need to see every ship of every person who is docked IMO. But being able to see maybe three, four or even a few more ships would be great! Very Happy

I also would like if those few ships were connected to real people. Maybe changing randomly between those, so you have a constant docking and undocking traffic to look at.

The idea about a 3rd person view when you dock and undock is great too! Just a little sequence you can cancel if you want to were you can see your ship being towed into station, etc.

I favor the additional chat channel for you current station only and I don't think that's hard to program/implement. Smile

Would be great to have those additional features!

You can't be cloned unless you're in a pod, so if you die in a station you're dead. Gone. Not alive. Deleted.

Apart from that, I don't really see how it could add anything to the game to walk around in stations. It would look cool perhaps but I can't imagine anything you can do in a station that would be worth the effort required to add it to the game. It's not a simple adding of too lines of code or changing AllowToWalkInStations from 0 to 1.

As for adding ships and similar to stations, as the original poster suggested - yes, it'd be cool. However, would it be worth the effort? The game isn't really supposed to be played in the stations anyway.

id like the idea of some in station gambling services, like poker or a similar futuristic idea. What better way to spend credits. Could even have better purchasable/tradeable cards that were very rare and uber.

And just to repeat a suggestion that's been made 100 time (if not thousands), how about a window in station!!

You should be able to look outside.
Would be also nice to see who's waiting for youCool

Some kind of 1st person/3rd person view would be pretty pointless as others have pointed out. Nothing wrong with a few things that add a little life to the galaxy though. It's the little details that add up to create a sense of immersion in the game world. I like the idea of having other ships visibly docked nearby, at least in the open plan stations. You wouldn't have to do anything particularly fancy - just throw in a couple of random ship models in a few of the available bays and it would be a nice touch.
