Incarna the day after
Since logging in for Incarna after all the hoops had to jump through to load up the Incarna patch I’ve spent a grand total of less than 5 minutes after automatically getting logged into my Captain’s Quarters. Moving around in station just didn’t seem to feel natural playing the game of life with spaceships and space travel. The even bigger problem was the lag load on my PC which seem to go nuts which ran just fine before Incarna and without the Captain’s Quarters environment.
So less than 5 minutes after I had logged into Captain’s Quarters I selected to no longer load Station Environment which is the new Captain’s Quarters environment. Which you can do on the in-game graphics selection screen via ESC > Graphics Setting. I’m not sure if CCP long-term will allow many to keep the Station Environment turned off for Incarna. But I’m far from alone in-game with electing to turn of the Captains Quarters environment and just going about life as normal and not worrying about it.
I just kinda wish without the Station Environment there was some easy way to see exactly what ship you were in on login or whenever at station without actually having to check your hangar. CCP could maybe have easily placed a visual ship hologram right there in the screen inside the station just like you would see right there in the same place when the station environment is actually loaded.
For me, I can go about things just as fine without worrying about walking in quarters, looking at myself and worrying about the lag with the environment loaded that seem to make my PC performance just go nuts. I rather have a smooth running game without the load that’s making my PC go nuts. So I’ve just turned off the Station Environment and can do without it.
For now I guess I’ll just be fine with looking at the hangar door whenever I dock at station. Back to life as normal and doing the important stuff without worrying about Captain’s Quarters. I guess if you ask me, do I really care about waking in station? I really don’t care much about doing so.
