This was quite the oddness. The Misses got me EvE just a few days ago. (Many, many thanks, by the way, Babe.) I’ve been scoping the game out for easily a year now, just never thought the rigs we got would work with it. Only part that actually did was the character creation. …Only now you have to see that every time you dock.
Or do ya?
There was one monster of a post on the EvE forums and easily half were people requesting that the dock and 3d avatar business be made an option. The other half were people saying “shutup, get a new pc. It’ll cost like 50 bux for a new graphics card, rofflerofflelozer”
Luckily, I can say that you *can* turn off that Captains Quarters stuff! Wanna know how to turn it off? Do ya?! It’s in the options, silly! (I easily missed it like five times, so don’t worry about your vision if you passed it up too ^_^) You just gotta uncheck the box. It’s in the video options, which should be the default screen when you hit Escape, and just above the boxes that you can change the settings from High to Low or whatever. Heck, even if your rig can run that bit, many are saying it will get old fast.
So there ya go! Uncheck it, and game on. I’m quite happy that we can so easily side-step that stuffs as the game is great and not being able to turn it off would have probably ended my run with the game right thar’. (Mind you, if I had a PC that could load that stuff without lag it would be *awesome*. But till then, I’m happy I have the option to turn it off ^_^)
