I'm out mining using a survey thingy. I press it and the ship is enveloped in this subtle warbley scan effect.

Look...you really don't need an effect for every little thing in EVE. I believe the survey scanner is working just fine.

This would also cut down on wasted resources for useless effects, don't you think?

Now, having said that there are some effects that need buffing up. The warp effect for one. Very lame.

You now realise that it would take more people (who could be off fixing your precious lag) to take those effects out than it would to simply leave them be.

And if you mean computer resources, boohoo you just lost 1 kb max and literally almost nothing on your processor.

I made this post because I recall the engine trails were taken away for being resource hogs.

Apparently you all have a problem reading. I did not say i have rig problems, but that if resources is an issue then take away some of the really stupid effects and bring back/enhance the cool ones like ship trails.

As for all the other troll replies...STFU losers.

Um, why not keep all effects and put a list of options so people can optionally turn them off?

They don't waste server resources; it's a local machine only problem.

If an item like ship trails is removed because they are deemed "resource hogs" then naturally one would assume that minimizing resource use is one of CCPs goal.

God, Im posting to idiots here.

TBH the op should be glad ccp added something to mining. It's all they done to mining in years, hence it's the marco haven it's become.

There is no such thing as useless resources, games are about looking good as well as playing good. The resources are only wasted on client side and have absolutely nothing to do with the eve servers.

Same reason you do not go into a restaurant and get a pile of food, you want good presentation too.

Moderated.Applebabe.

Engine trails were never implemented after a total remake, rather than "taken out" of anything. And no, we don't need engine trails of a thousand ships in blobs. It'll be a resource hog and look bad at the same time.

Think for a second. When were they removed? What has happened since then? What, in fact, do they have to do with anything currently going on in the game?

Did you know that every time you click your mouse in space to correct course, the lights on the Bridge flash purple (inside the ship).

I wish CCP would have a database or an ingame archive to demonstrate or let you lookup what effects look like especially when they change them so you know WTF that 'thing' is that so and so is doing. Especially as a new player to see effect in space and not know WTF is going on.

The Combat Log would like a word with you. It wants to tell you exactly what is happening to your ship at any given time.

Posting your 0.01 isk is welcome. However, once is clearly pointed out that you (not being an IT engineer ect, not your fault) that such graphics effects only effect client systems, and can be turned off/lowered in the settings.... then drop the topic and back away from the keyboard. ^^

Well, the biggest "effect" is the GUI itself. At full power, you win at least 35 FPS if you hide all windows...

Born and raised in Texas, still live here. The few times I've been out of state and ate food at a different restaurant...

My first thought was
"Why the hell does my food look like an art piece?
My second thought was
"And why is there so little of it?"

I figured out then that I'm better off making my own food wherever I go, ugh

just redo the sensor booster effect, increase brightness on webbing effect and reinstate the old cyno/jump effect.

Also engine trails
