I know CCP is always looking to cut graphics load so here is one I think can go:

1. The energy swish that shoots out of the jump-gate once you jump.

A lot of players think that it is you being projected out at some ungodly speed to your destination, but all it is, is a (simulated) energy release from the power it takes to jump you from one location to another.

OK, fine...makes for good sci-fi, but is it really necessary? Once I jump, I don't care about the gate and it really serves no purpose.

Anyway, just my .02 isk. I'm sure there are other unnecessary graphics that would help speed the game along, and some I wish that would return like the jet trails (but make them work properly this time).

Tracking Computer and Sensor Boost makes unnecessarily large glowing effect.

actually this is commonly called a "gate flash". in many circumstances is tactically important, as it let's you know when the gate has been used by another player.

during PVP, all three mentioned effects are important to notice.

The gate effect is absolutely vital for any camp for it tells you not only when someone jumps in, but used with local channel. Can almost always tell you who just jumped in.

As for the sensor booster effects, when you are a cloaky pilot and are wondering if your target is a ratter or bait, many many times the bait will be silly enough to have a sebo on. a dead giveaway that they are not interested in those rats.

you will realize what that statement means when and if you ever reach 0.0, sometimes called a "gate activation" over teamspeak YARRRR!!

Yeah all the effects are needed. But some of the sizes of the effects could be reduced. I will say eccm is hell annoying.

As others have already said, gate activation is actually quite an important graphical cue.

But how else are gatecampers going to have a dinner bell when someone enters a system?

Try camping a wormhole, hole activations are the only things that make life worth living after you've spent 30 minutes waiting for a slow as molasses prober to jump through.

More excel formulas instead of graphics please!

I'll make do with graphs as long as they are in real time.

Reminds me that CCP said they'll be doing a proper stock market eventually - about time they got around to it, when Eve turns in to an FPS online game the audience for trading stocks, shares and currency may be vastly reduced.

Do I dare dream of TWO consecutive industrial updates??

Please put a switch in to turn off dust clouds, like there was on sisi during trinity development. They kill my frame rate and I hate them!

Would think the opposite; there is ever increasing need for more eye candy in order to keep Eve fresh and modern looking.

CCP is indeed trying to reduce server lag, but what ever pretty things your own PC does has very little impact on CCP's cluster itself.

you want eye candy?

how about the stupid freakin view of your ship inside the fitting window
not only is it pointless , but takes so much space , fitting window could be definitly reduced by 50% size

its pointless as your in the freakin ship anyway you can look at it behind the window
when that came in , i coulndt understand why ccp would think its usefull

Give engine trails back.
Reduce ECCM graphical effect by, well, quite a lot. It hurts.

The Gate Flash so has to remain... as others said, for many reasons.

The ship engine trails were funky, WANT!

I also want the pre-Apocrypha Warp effect back

Posting in a thread calling for a graphics nerf.

All graphics are client-side, yes? Turn 'em off or spend the ~150 required to run 'em.

And the cyno effect/titan bridge, god those cynos were soooooo much better. And you could actually see caps entering or leaving the field easily. On top of that you could see when the titan bridge was up!

Wicked Cyno or Jump Portal >>>>> WTF is this?

The one reason i don't have effects on(even though my comp is powerful enough to handle them) is the damned sensor booster spam. 250 battleships worth of sensor booster spam makes your eyes bleed.

Maybe if they had a rolled up sign pop out on a stick, unroll, and say "Pilot Just Jumped", that might be less lag?
