I just want to have the galaxy map and solar system map open in a widow rather than a whole screen. That would be a better improvement than any "captains Quarters".

Hang on a sec, this

When you dock you will appear on the balcony by default


Sounds like the thin edge of the wedge.

In other words we will be forced out of our ships everytime we dock, wether or not we want to be? For all you say you don't want this to get in the way of the veteran's and that the CSM has pointed out you need to keep the load times the same do you really expect to be able to do that? (more to the point do you expect us to believe you?) Load up a new 3d environment in the same time as docking takes now? on all the varied types of machines we players are using? .. or will the "similiar load times" only apply to the people with SOTA machines and nice fat internet pipes?

Make the balcony an option. Same as the rest of Incarna.

Once we are forced into the hangar balcony how long before we are forced to get out of our ships and walk to the agents office, or walk to the stock exchange to use the market etc etc.

I had seen some of the much earlier work, so I sort of expected to see this level of quality. Glad to see I my expectations were realized, looks excelent.

When the first iteration hits sisi, will us Mac people get to see it? Or we get locked out like in the last mass test?

There is no gameplay at all. Nothing to gain or to lose.

But it's really cool... It's fine as far as feel and eye candy are concerned.





epic success CCP, you've even gotten the people that think this whole thing is pointless, to get on board! Laughing

The first ten times. Then you'll get sick of having to run around to do everything in station. Believe me, they "say" that we will still be able to use a station interface similar to what we have now. How long before we have to walk to each individual section of the station to do repairs, refit, and request missions?

Erm- I may have been wrong, but I was always under the impression we were "capsuleers" because we hopped from ship to ship in our clone-ready bubble of goo (capsule).


I'm certainly not arguing against Incarna features because of this, but... it did kinda make me go "wut?"

Never thought I'd find myself in agreement with The Mittani, but there you go. Eve indeed needs more immersion, and I think this is a very good - and cautious - step!

looks good. though I will miss ship spinning.

Will there be an option to play with the overview settings from inside the station as well? would be nice to set it up in safety.

You, uh, know you can do it on an alt on the same account, right? Make a newb character and set it up there.

What would be great would be new market items to customize your living quarters. Rugs, tables, lights, paint, decorations, etc... That would make it really feel like home...

your talking about YOUR opinion. But 90% of people that play mass effect never get sick of being able to walk around the ship.

I know I know, in your opinion mass effect would get rid of the ship for a text menu where you pick the next mission.

GET OVER IT, this is YOUR OPINION. YOURS. not MINE. or most player. we won't get board of seeing our ship, we really won't you will, and if you quit over it, the player base will grow without you.

just get it in line that msot games have things like undocking, and they are MASSIVELY POPULAR.


hell even elite had a sort of undocking thing and i never got tired of it...



edit: also keep in mind I say all of this will the mind set that CCP will never force us to walk to agents. That would cross the line and break the game for me. I beliee in the CSM, and it's power to give CCP dirty looks. In fact based on this very blog I feel like they might of had different ideas untill CSM got ****ed and they made the UI easier for older players.

CCP will never make us run around stations to do everything for space. CCP WILL however give us thing that you might consider fluff, but other consider what makes a good game excellence.

we don't want to play excel in space!

Question about the ship hangar (which I am absolutely stoked to see is being implemented, since a while back a dev mentioned it was cut):
Will CCP be using the current ship models shown distant from the player's location, or newer high res versions that are somewhat closer to the player for a sense of scale?

If anything I'd like to see low detail maintenance crews off in the distance with my ship, so many new players have no idea just how huge these ships really are, and it would be and incredible experience for a new player to see that their tutorial mission Atron is about the size of a 747 and a not an f16.

Don't know if it will ever be possible but yes: Jita 4-4 undock cam visible from the CQ screen would be more than extra cool. It would be full of highly radioactive awesomnium. Which we would then need to figure out the market value of...

Am I authorized to say: "WTF! WOW!" ?

It looks really cool.

And this is the CCP we learned to love: ahead and defining the new frontiers.

I really hope you are right. I really do hope this will remain as an "option". But something tells me it won't, and we will soon be playing "Internet Space Bar and Cantina", instead of "Internet Spaceships". I am praying that I am wrong, but still preparing to be horribly right.

AWE. SOME.

Thank you CCP. Brilliant stuff there.

The balcony idea is utterly superb and a lovely surprise. EVE sometimes misses opportunities to show of the majesty of its ship designs. Hopefully this will work to fix that.

Cannot WAIT to see this on SiSi.

looks really nice!

On a sidenote, i'd prefer the captains quarter to be located on the ship you're currently flying, as it sounds kind of weird that every station keeps a quarter reserved for every pod pilot in the whole universe.

Also if the quarter was located on your ship, future expansions might allow you to walk around in your ship. luxury yacht anyone?

But hey... Incarna! This summer! Y E S !!!!!

"You're", "talking", "your", ", but", "people", "who", "Mass Effect", "opinion", "Mass Effect", "Get over it.", "This", "your opinion", "Yours", "Not mine or most player's", "We", "bored", "won't", "Just", "most", "massively popular.", "Hell, ", "."

Your opinion is mostly right, but could you try to express it with just the teeniest bit of style?

amazing update! I thought i heard somewhere that being able to see your ship was too much of a hassle and made me sad. Glad to see that it is still in the works! I picture the minmatar stations with a dark rustic starcase, steam pouring out of pipes, as you walk up to a huge balcony and get dizzy from the enormous vacuum surrounding your carrier. maybe seeing some animations, like crewmembers boarding and unboarding, crates of food being moved onboard. mechanics toucing up some dings and dents. Take it to the next level, CCP!

"Captainís Quarters will offer interactions in the 3D space ... adjusting your fittings through a holo-model of your ship."

Is this going to be an in game EFT? or just swapping modules you have in station?
