I do wish they brought this particular one back. I mean with the Traditional ESD, all they'd have to do is just add the ships back and that'd be it. Another thing I'd like to see is if they added the small shuttles and little cargo haulers you'd see inside the spacedock. Something like these:
I do remember the ships thought it was a nice touch really wish it had friends just random ships coming in and out of warp. it would be really nice to be able to see real players coming in and out of zone and just milling about. outside esd. I don’t remember having a lot of lag in esd but then again I've not played much for the last month or two.
I always thought it would be fun to see the accidental rear end collision out there. or maybe a shuttle scrape along side the belly of a cruiser before righting itself. A growing grinding sound followed by the sound of metal buckling under massive weight. then over the pa damn it I said wait for the doors to open.
