CCP,
When are you guys going to release the screen saver that some one asked during the CCP panel at fan fest.

I too would like one of those.

Particularly if we could select which ships are shown.

I suppose you could even make it so that it only worked on computers that have EVE installed, and have it draw its models from there, but that would keep me from showing it off on my work computer. Sad

Screen savers are prerendered so this probably isn't going to happen.

Such a categorical statement only deserves a categorical answer: no they aren't.

The backgrounds used at Fanfest are specially pre-rendered high-res videos. They are also awesome and I want them Very Happy

Say YES to screensavers! I reckon i'd get a lot of people asking about Eve @ Work if people stroll past my desk with a cool Eve Screensaver playing...

Screensavers are simply .exe files with a .scr extension.
Not all screensavers are pre-rendered, nor do they have to be.
There have been interactive screensavers before. (Google it).
There is nothing saying that CCP couldn't make a screensaver that can access the models and display them.

1. Get into sexy ship.
2. Set autopilot for very far away safe space.
3. Undock and click autopilot button.
4. Ctrl-F9
5. ???
6. Screensaver

Been there done that.
Take a closer look in the background of the fan fest videos.
There is slight movement, lights twinkle, it has an animated feel... like looking into a hanger space in a station.
Heck there is no reason why it couldn't ever so slowly rotate around the hanger view.
Egad, you wouldn't even have to log in to spin shipsExclamation


I rather like the other thread though, a desktop would be nice too.

Something similar was requested during Alliance Tournament IV (I think) for the spinning ship wireframes, but CCP never delivered on it. Someone in the community programmed a make shift one, but it wasn't very stable iirc.

Hopefully CCP will come through on it this time.

I REALLY want that as either a desktop (wallpaper) or a screen saver. It was Amarr ships and thus perfect! ugh
