This has been mentioned a couple of times already. Quoting relevant parts from the Q&A sticky:Général Grievous wrote:What do you think about inside ship transporteur?
It sounds like Ego do not wants to design corridors inside ships.
Are we forced to walk on stations or can we control all aspects from cockpit?
Platform gameplay has been reduced in comparison to X Rebirth. However, there are new interaction possibilities on platforms, and walking will always have a real purpose, for example as part of missions.
Will some cap ships have more interior than just a bridge? E.g Carrier hangar?
Possibly some, but don't expect a full interior. We are limiting interior modelling to areas that are relevant to gameplay (and by that I mean gameplay we actually have, not potential gameplay that some people might like but doesn't actually exist in the game).
How much the internal parts / cockpit of each spacecraft will be different from each other. Specifically about the large ships (carriers and capital ships) the internal parts of each of them will be different from the other? Can we see the NPCs around these big ships doing their job?
Small ships will have cockpits that match their hull, so there should be quite a bit of variety there. We're not modelling the entire interior of larger ships.
Will we be able to fly and command capital ships? with a bridge?
Yes, you will be able to fly all ships from their cockpit or bridge in case of Capital ships.
I block all of them completely because without that, they will still track you even without an account. When I left all social media upon my return home once medically retired from the US Navy, I took all steps to do so because I had been trained in such a manner, I am very aware of what is really going on behind the scenes.. both from companies like facebook and many governments. Sadly, most people do not have the knowledge or ability to do much about it.. I do and did..
It may come across as me being overly paranoid.. but that's fine because all it is, is the internet.. I don't live online nor do I really need it for anything.. To me it's a tool like any other that offers convenience to many things, of course... But if it went poof tomorrow, I would not be bothered at all by that.. I should mention, when I came home I also got rid of my cellphone as well.. Have not had one in 3 years now.. and on that I can tell you, it is like having a huge weight off you lifted... Until it was gone, I never realize 1) how little I actually used it for phone calls, 2) how much money it was sucking out of my pocket every month ($150+ a month) and 3) how much of a pain it was always worrying about whether it was charged or if I had lost it..
I am middle aged but got my start on the Commodore 64 way back.. I would be considered an expert in real life in the computer field/engineering due to my Navy training and OJT. And yet, other than using it for convenience and fun, I refuse to integrate all this technology into my every day life. I know the new generations are going all out with this stuff... Sadly, I have no doubt the future holds a time where they may just find out how big a mistake it is to become completely reliant on technology to live every day...
Anyhow, sorry I got off on a little venting there.. LOL I won't access anything with facebook, twitter and very soon, google (still pulling my personal videos etc down and it is taking a while).
