I,ve been playing eve for about 3 months after about a 1 year break from it and ofcourse I,m impressed with the graphical upgrade that has taken place during this time, however there are a few things I would like to see to make the game even further appealing.

1. Shields, all the ships have them but we never see them all incoming fire seems to hit the hull, a nice ripple effect spanning out from the contact point would be a nice touch.

2. It seems that whenever you attack something you seem to only ever hit one spot on the target, maybe we just like burning holes straight through things, but with larger targets it looks a bit odd.

3. I know this has already been mentioned but missile bays need to be added and I would like to see missiles leaving them and not the centre of the ship.

I know many people will say lag, lag, lag bla, bla, bla, and ofcourse poeple who take part in epic 1000 player battles will be un-happy but how often do these battles take place? Alot of us wont even see that kind of action so why cant we benifit from the new hardware CCP have and get a "prettier" gaming experiance.

Everyone saying that 'lagg, lagg, bla bla' mostly always forget the gfx options where you could ectualy disable those shiny new options. That should be added with these new graphics you just stated ( which I also love to have ).

The more gfx, the better. Especialy for ppl who can max out all settings without getting client side laggz. For the one's who can't run that **** they can just turn those gfx down Smile

However, there will be alot of graphical improvements in the next expansion ( Maybe even these graphics? ) Twisted Evil

with added customisable ship colourschemes /lights
and added better explosions
and planets :)
I also hope engines are included in the coming new overhaul as it always bugs me how they begin the glow in space a small distance from where the engine ends.

actually glows on the ship itself where the engine comes from would be ace too!! along with proper afterburner/mwd fx.

they are already doing turret fire and effects and stuff

Definately agreed, especially with missile turrets.

1. Launcher Hardpoints
2. Variable Impact Effects - Shield, Armor, Hull
3. Variable Damage Type Effects - Thermal, Explosive, EM, Kinetic
4. Multiple Impact points on a given target - Just selected by client randomly
5. Specific Radiation points for external effects, such as NOS, Tractors, etc. - basically choose a spot or two on the ship that are the origin of the 'utility slot' modules.

Man, if some of the effects graphics you see in homeworld was something you'de have in Eve's battles, things would get quite more exciting.

Dev's...bring cinematic quality action sequences in a regular fight, and combat itself has received a facelift!

Well, with the March 10th expansion coming up, and new graphical effects promised for things like this we'll get to see what improvements have been made.

But I would like to see this.

Server load or not, it could be a user enabled function no? In starwars empires at war ships have points on the ship which you can direct your weapons to hit, like shields, turrets and engines etc, and when you eventually blow them away, they detach and fly off, (eventually dissapearing reduces objects to be rendered) and the ship is left with a gaping hole, you see decks and fire etc. it could make EVE fabulous.

I don't think there's going to be any new graphics updates in the next patch. There's new content but as far as I know from reading, there's no new updates on already existing material.

And for what I'd like to see, dear god get RID OF THE PLANETS. I know the eventual goal is to make planets interactive but c'mon, give us an update so they don't look like basketballs with low res blurry textures from 15 years ago, it looks terrible.

And shields.

Find Torfi's comments here. We do appear to be getting new graphics updates. Planets sadly appear to be dropped till December at least.

Also, if I completely miss a target, they why do I still hit it?

Frak graphics, i want SOUNDS! actual nice sounding, tactically meaningful sounds. warning sounds. notifications of ewar and such.
and i want better sounds for warp, changing direction, activating afterburners, firing guns and lasers. different sounds for shield, armor and hull impacts. thats what i want.

I think an update on sounds and graphic effects/additions would add quite a bit to the game.
