Little Things

There is a little things post on the forums for players to list small aspects of the game that drive them crazy. Originally this was made by CCP I believe. It was removed and allowed to die after many things were addressed in patches. Of course, not everything was addressed and a new one created.

I decided to contribute to it today.


The message that you receive in each section of empire space when you are not supposed to be in said section of empire space is different to the reactions of the other three factions. I think this is a small, but fantastic thing. Because I travel through Caldari to Gallente to Minmatar space, almost daily hauling, I see these messages regularly.

Because, I spend the bulk of my time in a outlaw security status character that should never be in high security space, I see these messages and panic for a moment sometimes at the 'you' thinking I've somehow messed up. It is a side effect of not paying full attention to the screen but enough attention to note changes. Maybe I should auto-pilot more.


While this one works a bit better, I cannot help but feel that it should be directed. I should see "YOU" are a criminal within this solar system while everyone else should see my name announcement. Just as with the above message saying YOU to everyone when it should say it only to the person it is directed towards.

For all I know this is a major, world breaking undertaking to change. To me, it seems to be a little thing but it is one that I have always noticed.
