Let me see to get to my ship and land on a planet to play the game, I have about 3-4 loadscreens before I even land on the planet I wanted to play on.


Erase the spaceports have us land right in the planet.

Why do I need to loadup a hallway to get onto the spaceport then load up again to get to the planet.

REmove it from spaceship to the planet. This would help with OPEN world pvp.

Before you say we need realism, this is a game, if I want to learn about real space travel I'll read up on it on NASA.com ...

-In other words to make what I'm saying easier to understand...
Why do I need 3 load screens prior to loading up the planet.

I just want one load screen from the ship to the planet.

NOT 3 pointless areas before loading up the planet that serve no apparent purpose but to make me walk.

You're joking right? You're seriously kidding yourself if you think removing a 15 second walk and fade screen has any bearing on players avoiding Illum or not. I won't disagree that it's a minor inconvenience having to go through a space port but it's a verrrrry minor issue as it only adds another <30 seconds for the walk and additional extremely brief load screen. I doubt anyone else gives a rat's *** about the station walk when they are going to be spending an hour or more fighting for crates or trying to find/kill enemies/get the kills to actually count...


Getting rid of the ports would be nice, but will have ZERO effect on world pvp...

....there are only 2 load screen, and the one to get to your ship should not take very long at all.

How in the hell do loadscreens have anything to do with PVP? You have to go through the same screens for any planet Ilum or not.........
This might be the most retarded post ever on any forum....

IDK if it's my computer.. but if I alt tab out and go back in, it'll take me to a load screen for about 10 seconds.

Which is extremely annoying.

No, the little hallways are pretty stupid. By no stretch will they make me avoid going to a particular planet, but IT IS annoying.

As it stands:

Ship > Hallway > Orbital Station > Planet

Why not:

Ship > Oribital Station > Planet ??

Actually he is right. And it isnt a fadescreen, it is a full on load screen.

Ship door->load screen
Halllway->load screen
Orbital station shutle->load screen

And there are plenty of people with great computer that have 2 minute load screens just because this game was designed by morons. There is no excuse for 3 load screens to go from ship to planet. FUEA

Full screen NON Windowed has to re-render everytime you alt tab back to the game. You can avoid this by using FS Windowed or just Windowed but you may get reduced FPS by doing so.

Actually having a space station on ilum is beyond braindead.From a rl and lore point of view.
The enemy would destroy it first chance they got.And on those space stations it's like there is no war down there.It would make 100 times more sence for sh8ips to break thru enemy defences to land in a friendly base were the ship and landing area were protected by a energy shield.As i said the station is pointless i war time and it's clear who ever gave the ok to put it there have no clue how things would be on a planet during war in the sw universe.

terrible. I looked for the windowed/full screen option but couldn't find it. Assuming it's in the Preferences section and I missed it?
