We Are Pod Pilots. We are in pods, we dont sit in a chair, telling a crew to go there do that swab the deck..etc...etc. We have wires, tubes, and fiberoptics "implanted in us" We are the ships "AI".
Please stop trying to make this game into somthing it was not ment to be.
See...this is where I would beg to differ. I'm not a Pod Pilot...at least I would prefer not to be. I AM the commander drowsing away in my chair yelling every now and then at the crew, while downing a couple of Quafes and enjoying a nice tan, while those strip miners tear away at the roids. When trying to live through those long trade hauls, I'm most likely in my bunk catching a PBN (power beauty nap). But when hunting or pvp'ing I am most certainly up front where the action is. This however don't make me a Pod Pilot. The pod is stuffed away somewhere in the back, and is only there in the case of an emergency. I don't run around in RL with a fire extinguisher in my back pocket either.
Oh...and my ship does have an AI (or more like AS)...her name is "mother"...I'm just the one telling her what to do.
As for making this something it was never meant to be. Well I can see your point there. But isn't this a "game-in-dev"...aren't we all looking forward to the next patch that gives us more debth? Well, as I see it, there will come a time when adding new ships or guns will be just stupid. I mean...there are limits to how many ships I want in my hangar anyways (limit is somewhere in the hundreds
So why not think up ideas (even if it is only for laughs) that could make this game more fun? As EVE is now, it is pretty one dimensional. Just trying to give it a y-axis as well as an x. Adding longivity.
On top of that EVE is, to me, at least 50% relations. So adding a 3rd person view wouldn't be all that bad; Office meetings, Casino nights, Quafe games in the corp hangar and even being able to wander about your ship while hauling those 50 or so jumps. It is just ideas to get more content. I know this tends to point towards sim'ing, but isn't it already a simulation?
Okay...that was ranting...sorry
