Space not visible from station interior

Post by quarren » Tue, 14. Mar 17, 13:41

Hi guys,

first of all: I am unsure if this even is a technical problem or my memory just fails me.

I dimly remember being able to see space from inside certain stations at release (or was it just in dev blogs/videos?). The "ribbed" canteran corridor comes to mind, or the "viewing platform" used for some stations in Omicron Lyrae (the one that is also used in the "Capital Ship Bridge" mod). So, am I imagining things or has that never been a thing in X Rebirth? Am I having a technical problem?

Thanks a lot

You can definitely see the surrounding space and nearby live activity from on the docking platforms of stations and capital ships. I don't recall ever seeing the same from within other station interiors though - although I could be wrong.

I'll move this to the Rebirth Universe forum for now as it will get greater exposure to other players there.

in Vanilla this has only been the case for the Repair Platforms which are used for Alboin Repairdocks, Albion L / XL Ship Trade Docks and all Capships. there is a section in the Canteran Stations which supposedly shows the exterior, but it always has been orange blur only. similar for the room used in the Capship Mod - the Window is indeed transparent, but this platform was never set to non-opaque, so it will only show blackness..

Allright, I guess my memory failed me there. :D

Not making space visible from inside the various station interiors is a huge missed opportunity in my opinion, would've made walking around stations much cooler (I mean, the model for the viewport is already there!).

So... is there a mod for it? :)

This has been my main complaint about WIS from the very beginning; as far back as Eve Online ive pointed out that seeing outside is basically half the reason to have interiors.

In reverse, it's why it was so awesome to have cockpits drawn! Gives a sense of being human with respect to everything around you.

The next step here is realistic transfer between; airlocks and space suits. Imagine Walking ON Stations/Ships! Laser blasts blowing holes in the metal, pockmarked shielding, weapon fire exploding beyond the shield, missles exploding from their tubes.
