I always thought the faces were quite life-like. Does nobody else live in a state of persistent bored indifference?There is some evidence that Frontier were serious when they said that they designed the ships with interiors in mind.
For example some folks have built plausible walkthroughs. Others have "got out of the chair" in VR and walked through walls to find elevators and stairs and things built already.
The main thing I hope for in Atmospheric Legs isn't even on ANYONE's "want List" as far as I know.
ED should lend itself to Story Making and video, but the expressionless CMDRs we have don't really lend themselves to that.
Even Frontier's cinematics show a capability of expressions, but we don't get that choice. We just forever look mildly annoyed.
that’s for sure, and there are some details indicating that the whole ship will be available for moving (all these elevators on landing gear, etc.),Internal design of the ships will need a lot of rework if you can walk around in more than just the cockpit. You just have to look at how some of the landing gear and hardpoints work to see the issues.
What do you think, IF such a thing as “spacelegs” appears in the game, will all the rooms of their ships be available to the players or will they be limited only to “cockpits” whose door will work as a “magic portal” that transfers players immediately outside the ship?
my take from every post on the forum tells me that anything frontier does or doesn't do will be heavily criticized. There's pretty much no avoiding thisSpace legs is a white elephant that people think they want, but will only serve to expand the current criticisms of Elite Dangerous, and solve none of them.
There was a lot of talk about it at the beginning. There were videos with developers talking how excited they are to eventually make walking around the ship, Braben talked how his vision for this game is not only player as a spacecraft, but walking around (did he mention hunting?)To me, the "interesting and important" question is: Why do so many people believe "space-legs" is going to be added to the game? Players keep discussing it as if it is an upcoming feature. AFAIK nobody at FDev has ever said space-legs is definitely going to be added and FDev is notorious for "neither confirming nor denying" various player speculations.
As I recall, all DB ever said was that space-legs was something FDev "would like to do", not "would do".There was a lot of talk about it at the beginning.

Of course Fdev prefer to avoid stating anything definitely, to be able to cut stuff from the final expansion without people knowing what was going to be there, but I think there's enough clues to base space-legs belief on.
Things might have changed, prorities shifted, etc, but I personally believe space legs might be the core of the New Era, along with base building. Far from certain though
No, walking inside the ship and outside the ship was planned at the beginning. Braben mentions it after talking about including ability to land on planets.As I recall, all DB ever said was that space-legs was something FDev "would like to do", not "would do".
well, I really would like it to be really as it describes in the video, if fdev will make space legs exactly as Braben says, then it will be difficult for anyone to compete with the eliteNo, walking inside the ship and outside the ship was planned at the beginning. Braben mentions it after talking about including ability to land on planets.
