Maybe something for when you do Premium versions of the Planets and Moons, give us the option for space to be black.
The amount of nebulae in EVE is highly unrealistic, now I am well aware that EVE Physics != World Physics, but plain simple dark black space has something to it.

The constant flooding of colors in space gets annoying fast, especially some where the entire thing is just plain red or green.
Maybe give us a slidebar that indicates how much we want to see nebulae/colors in space.

I don't know how difficult it may be to implement, but I find it quite weird that each and every system is somehow magicly within a nebula of sorts that you can see clear as day.
If nothing else, make the nebulae less dominating, it's hardly space when you can't see a sliver of the black endlessness.
Perhaps make it more towards something like this?

The simple contrast of black space against your ship, a station and/or the sun has its perks as well.

I've said this several times. Eve does not represent the Milky Way. Who knows where they are at and how many nebulae are actually in that area of space. Who are you to say that this many nebulae is unnatural?

EVE is in a different galaxy than the milky way... perhaps it is younger with more nebulae?

EVE area is some 100 light years across. hardly a galaxy.

i agree with OP. more BLACK is good :)

I must agree with OP on this one. Yes, EVE is a nebulous piece of space, but often I feel like I'm flying through a planets upper atmosphere than through space itself.

Not saying to remove ALL the nebula, but more black would certainly balance things out a bit.

more black would be awesome

I'm getting sick of stuffing about with the camera just to find a dark patch to have my HUD over so that I can actually read it.

yes, also take out the twinkling stars, stars only twinkle on a planet due to dust obscuring them, in space, with very little dust per cubic meter stars don't twinkle.

I'd agree with reducing the number or amount of nebulae, but only if they add a brightness adjustment bar in the settings. (Seriousl, it's freakin dark, I can barely make out the features on my ship with my screen set for 100% brightness.)

Well... totaly black would be boring...

But on one part I realy agree, it can use an graphics upgrade!

I have been looking at the same trippy space clouds now since 2003 Shocked

Stars twinkle when their Planets pass between you and the Star, so it's possible, even in Space.

Planets donít usually have a yearly cycle of 3 seconds Laughing

Sadly (although understandable), planets don't actually orbit their parent star in EVE, I guess it would generate too much lag or something like that. However, the fact that a planet or a moon does a full rotation of its own axis in a few minutes is silly, it would tear itself apart going that fast.

Also, the amount of blackness would be optional, you could determine yourself how visible you want the nebulae to be with a slidebar.

I would like to see more plain black as well. The nebulae are pretty at first but get boring after a while...

Agree'd ^^ More black would be awesome.

I have been through several systems that have fewer nebulae than others, but more black all around would be great. Especially with a reflection upon your ship's hull. Mmmmmm.

Did you not notice the fallicy in this argument? lol

And i agree with we need more black

Put it this way the milky way is around 15 billion years old. just going through the varius systems I found numerous stars close to and even older then that figure. Hell Sankkasen system star is 51,528,000 years old. If you are going to call it a galaxy then at least acknowledge the fact that its older then our own which suggest no nebulae in that system but there is some. I would imagine eve is more of a star cluster and not a galaxy and that this cluster itself is in one big nebulae, at any rate I still would love to see more normalized black space for that extra realistic effect. Im all for it.
