Any idea if better captain's quarters will be brought from Aurum?

I will be protesting aurum until it gives a real gameplay advantage.

T3 modules, etc

CCP hasn't said no, so the answer is likely yes. Welcome to the world of MT, where the game world you enjoy looks like **** compared to the other guy who can just throw $ at it. Say goodbye to the immersive experience we were promised!

Meh CQ is hardly "housing" - far too small for multi billionaires like us.

What about large appartments that you can rent/buy like corp offices. They'd consist out of several rooms and you can also buy vanity furniture and pets and decorations?

Personally, I think it would be more interesting if housing were paid for with ISK. THe people with the mansions would be the people with more IN GAME currency than they know what to do with rather than just the rich kids with their parents wallets.

I would love alternate something, though. I'd rather have an office like space akin to the ready room from Star trek, than this motel we have now.

This is actually in the future. I think Torfi mentioned that the current cupboard-under-the-stairs is just the basic "hotel room". Eventually bigger accommodations will be iterated upon.

Actually THAT would increase immersion, as getting upgraded accommodations for more isk or "rum" fits perfectly into EVE.

Not that I would like it much, but a pimped crib for "rum" makes sense on all financial and gameplay levels. ugh

You can buy PLEX with ISK
and then process the PLEXES into Aurar

The superISKrich folks can thus use their riches to fix their houses
without buying PLEX with $

Yeah. Some early fanfest vids had that.
I kinda like the couch setting though. My stuff gets done while Im floating in goo, not sitting behind a desk like the lowly gropos (ground pounders).

What Im hoping for is that we could get a bigger standard CQ where your corp actually has a rented office. And maybe even bigger for the HQ.

Would help make those options something special.

Well my thought was that captains quarters, being quarters and all, are more of a private space, where you retreat to to take care of stuff alone and get away from the hustle and bustle of the station. I would also think, I'd have my quarters actually be on my ship, and thus, accessible from anywhere, even in space.

An office, on the other hand, sits three steps away from that hustle and bustle in a public area. The sign on the door makes decent advertisements for any services I may offer and it serves as a good meeting area (Instead of opening up a convo window, step into my office and we can talk face to face). it would certainly not be a generic gropo office. It would include a seating area as well, be very nicely furnished with some personal touches, and yes that orca you can see through the window behind my desk IS mine. The office would be in a specific station, I deem to be my home base.

I would also like it if when your corp rents an office, said office is an actual space inside the Incarna station environment that people can visit complete with an NPC secretary, an office or two for management and some other space to do whatever you want with (private bar, war room, etc.) The HQ would be a similar, but larger space that performs similar functions but says, we base ourselves out of this system.

I seemed to remember seeing early sketches/concept art of the CQ that were multi-level and larger than the current one on Duality.

Something larger would be nicer, wouldn't mind a bit of pacing area as long as its reasonably priced (not like 5 PLEX of Aurum for a bigger house or anything)
