I’ve been playing Rimworld for the last few months, and always felt immense satisfaction whenever I built a successful colony. I’d sit back, zoom out and just watch my colony brim with life for hours. Visually, I could see my success in the game, and recount the memories in achieving that success.
I don’t get that feeling with Eve. Suppose I come back from a successful exploration trip and my hold is brimming with loot. I dump it at a station.
And that’s it. There’s no phat pile of ISK I can stare at, or trophies I could hang in my (now-defunct) Captains Quarters. There’s no log or chronicle summarising my adventures that I can look back on.
Success just feels very “dry”. It’s only numbers that quickly gets forgotten. It’s just bland. The next time I login, for all intents and purposes, it feels as if nothing’s actually changed.
I’d like to see something like a proper 3D trophy cabinet (not the 2D icons that we currently have). Or a bank vault. Just something meaningful to show to myself what I’ve achieved in the game.
Hope that makes sense.
