It's a hard life for the modern EVE pilot. Sitting in stations, trading, hiding from wars, being bored all the time... Spinning ships is all you have to do. But even that takes work. This should be remedied, and I have just the idea to fix it.

Ship Auto-Spin!

This toggle option causes the camera to automatically spin the shop, so that you don't need to go through the time-consuming effort of spinning it yourself. Options for Auto-Spin could include a speed setting, determining how fast the ship spins, a toggle for clockwise and counter-clockwise spin, and even a special random-spin option, which quickly turns the camera in a random direction by a random amount, just like a player would do with the mouse. Not only does this make the life of the station-sitter much easier, but it keeps them healthier by warding off the scourge of carpal tunnel syndrome. It could also make a handy screen saver!

Support for this idea means you truly care about the quality and immersion of the EVE universe.

If I can control my computer from my phone, why can't my computer control itself?

This is actually genius and probably easy to do...
Addendum: Could we see this for 'previews' of ships too? Like open up a ship preview and have it auto-spin for you.

In all seriousness though this is really neat and I bet it takes minimal effort.

not supported.. the camera drone union filed a law suit against spinning and got it removed as too many camera drones got sick from it and had to be retired early for huge costs.

On a side note I would like to propose a real docking option for my ship, instead of this free-floating, bobbing above some hotplate, which makes me nervous.
And please add some other ships docked there too. I can't believe I always get to dock in a chamber that can easily hold 100 battleships and what not, but I'm alone.. ALWAYS. Just me. No one else's ships are there. NEVER.

^this.
I wanna see all docked ships, at least the active ones.
I do not need auto spin.
And when i am inside a station i wanna have a window to look outside and see whats going on there.
I wanna get rid of the sometimes half minute black screen while i am un/docking.

We had this option a while back, I'm not sure why they removed it.

Back in my day, we had to spin the ships ourselves.

STOP MAKING EVE EASIER.
