Quicker than expected, you can now turn off those pesky dock and undock animations – along with other “dynamic” things.
As shown in today’s patch notes – https://community.eveonline.com/news/patch-notes/patch-notes-for-118.6-release
“Introducing a setting called ‘Dynamic Camera Movement’ in the settings menu that allows you to enable or disable automatic camera movement, this will be a single setting that enables/disables all of the following:
- Docking animation
- Undocking animation
- Ship change animation
- Animation when logging in to the game in space
- Dynamic FOV
- Dynamic center offset”
I happily turned it off. While I still get an abnormally long blank screen when undocking (most, although not every time – seemingly introduced by the June release), the process is otherwise back to normal.
This change does seem to have introduced a bug. The Scope Network Information box – up near the Route / System name details, closes a little while after you dock.
Am I just being a Bitter Vet and not giving these things a chance, or has CCP’s camera related updates involved misstep after misstep? The game feels snappier without the dock transition animations.
