Manual Flight Control

orbit the ships/or other closer and faster , or farther and slower, all good

Please give us a reticle and manual flight control option. let us seperate the REAL skilled Pilots from the rest out there.

Allegiance(game from microsoft, very old one in fact) does well with this.
{sorry about that, just figured it would be an easy "comparison"}

The cost to the server would not be worth it.
Could you imagine the lag it would cause if the server had to follow every direction change of every pilot in system?

Unfortunately, Eve is not set up to be a flight simulator. There's too much happening on the servers as it is to add the extra overhead of accounting for what could be second by second changes in direction from all the pilots in the system.

Adding this kind of support would basically require them to re-architect the game completely.

Not supported.

EVE can't possibly handle all the calls that would be necessary for such.


As an alternative, buy a vaga and learn to manual fly using that (a la LERN2TRANVERSAL)

Lol.


Allegiance was a great game, though.

This would be such a nightmare. No.

I support this.

And for all those claiming technical reasons against it, I'd leave such comments to CCP devs. If enough people want it, I'd imagine they would at least consider the feature and its feasibility.

Why not implent joystick support while we're at it? ;)

The idea itself is actually pretty awesome and I can imagine it'd change the way many pilots (thinking mainly interceptor/frigate pilots) navigate/use their ship.
I don't really see a downside to this, except for the obvious technical problems that might arise. But as the poster above me said, lets leave that to CCP to determine.

While I would love this, it just isn't possible. Instead of a node crashing with a few hundred people, it would crash with 20.

I'd love to see something like this, or even wasd. There is a way to fly in any direction, double click, so there is at least some implementation of manual controls. Now lets try mapping them to something less carpal inducing. Speed up/down, pitch up/pitch down, etc does not seem that hard to do. At any rate, id rather let CCP say if it can be done or not, while letting them know that if they do it, I would love it.

A reticle I don't think would work at all, but all up for manual flying.
