Hi,

I'm happy with the incarna update so far. The only thing I don't like is the fact that you can't really "feel" how big the ships are in the hangar still, which was a big point in having this update right? To get a feel of the ship size..


Heres an example:

The biggest problem I see here is that you guys made the smaller ships look bigger so that people with smaller ships really can feel the size while the bigger ships dont really fit in (such as my carrier in the pic)

A solution to this might be to just completely redesign the hangar, rather than just take the old one and put it in a very bad perspective as seen from the Captains quarters.


Maybe to put the ships in the hangar really close facing the CQ, and expanding the walkway to the sides, so that you really can feel the depth and lenght of the ships, and put them at the same "size ratio". Because now, i just got dissapointed by swapping from my covops to my carrier.


I know some people will say, "hey, its closer, thats why".

But IMO it doesn't feel like it's closer at all... It just looks.. weird?


What do you guys think?

Completely agree. Before I turned off CQ I was flying a Catalyst. My first view of it I was like "Oh wow that is really tiny. But I guess it isn't such a big ship so it makes sense".

Then I swapped ships to a few Amarr frigates that I know are supposed to be much smaller than the Catalyst and they looked HUGE.

I was thinking at first it was just a matter of perspective and that my destroyer was simply further back but upon investigation they really didn't do a very good job of portraying that if that is supposed to be the case. The ships looked to all be in about the same position in the hangar.

Kind of ruined the whole experience of the CQ for me to be honest.

In early builds on SiSi nothing was scaled.
But the problem was that frigates were so small you could barely even see them^^
so they changed it that small ships are not as far away as large ones.

The problem is we are missing a reference.

I agree with the OP. Placing the ship RIGHT next to the CQ area would allow new frigate pilots to feel powerful, and improve the sense of scale immensely. The average Frigate should fill most of that view. A battleship should block it off entirely with a small portion of it's hull. Then, to make things way more awesome, take that tiny hologram of your active ship. Make a LOT bigger. Then make it so you can spin it when you're at the controls. Congratulations, you just made CQ acceptable to 90% of the playerbase.

Yeah maybe a monocle floating at the top will really make a sense of scale Very Happy

Frigate just looks closer, not bigger. Maybe the monocles are throwing off depth perception.

In a nutshell: This looks like a crap piece of rushed expansion that does not really add any content, to milk players bank account and fund their other games.

I partially agree, but I think they really need the money in order to be able to make the game better.. People need to get paid aswell.. It was just a matter of time before these vanity items showed up, as they do in other MMOs now aswell..

And as i said, im happy with the CQ but everything behind the pod looks pretty much like it looked before, and its too bright and just doesnt seem to fit with the new CQ.

They need to kill this with fire and return our station hangers. What a joke.
