What's wrong about it? Carriers can carry plenty of ships in their SMB, the thing they don't carry is the pilots - and you know that's probably only for technical reasons. It'd be so much cooler if you could actually dock up on a Carrier and do that

Jeez guys, firstly thank you so much for the awesome comments, they're incredibly motivational! :D

As a few have already mentioned this was my first jump into the Unreal 3 Engine, as well as my first for a fair few programs. It all began as a University project to show the progression of cinematics within game engines (which gave me the time I needed to produce this, as well as a deadline).

Because of that, I wanted to keep this Machinima as "pure" as possible. This unfortunately meant that I would be moving away from programs I was already competent with, like After Effects and other post production programs - and instead, I tried to get to a point where the movie could be watched entirely within Unreal. This put up restrictions, however, it also offered some pretty fun challenges - which led to some interesting manifestations, that wouldn't have made it into the movie otherwise!

I love writing EVE fiction, which was the real inspiration for this Machinima. This meant that the film was not going to portray a world ruled by game mechanics, but rather an alternate reality of EVE that I use when I write fiction.

Again, thanks for the comments and the feedback. I shall pass the sentiments on to everyone involved! Glad you guys enjoyed it! :D

Great work!

Will you share few Ued screenshots as well? Smile Wanna see how it looks there.


Of course, I'll take some screenies for you and offer a link as soon as I get a chance.

Pretty, but I want in-game footage.

And those ain't Rifters. Yummy, though.



Hehe, they are indeed yummy. Actually though, they are Rifters - they're just the super sekrit Tournament versions! (Shattap, Deks! :P)

Best video in 2010? Looks like we already have our winner.

Outstanding job. I was wondering if you could briefly describe the programs and hardware you used to achieve this?


The main programs I used were:

The Unreal Development Kit (for... well... everything... thank you Epic!)
3D Studio MAX for models and construction of skeletal ship animations.
Photoshop for the materials and textures.

Other programs used included:

Tri-exporter, for extracting the Eve models and textures. Kudos to Selvin for making that - and thanks CCP for letting me use them!
Adobe Premiere and After Effects for final composition and UI scenes - Kyoko physically scares me when he uses those programs.
Shadermap Pro for creating texture materials, mostly normal maps.
Sony Sound Forge, Adobe Soundbooth and Audacity for sound engineering. <3 JadeMotoko for her expertise in these areas.
Fraps, to record the footage within UDK.

And finally, a multitude of plugins for 3DS Max and After Effects, for epic ship violence! :D

Also, the official tracklist in order of appearance:

Steve Jablonsky - Matrix of Leadership
The Prodigy - Warrior's Dance
Groove Addicts - Hellbent
Hans Zimmer - Betrayal
Brian Tyler - Touge
The Prodigy - Omen (Noisia Remix)

Hope that helps!

Hai guys!

After seven months and seven hundred cans of red-bull, I can finally show you guys what happens when you put New Eden, the Unreal 3 Engine and large quantities of caffeine into a blender.

Many thanks to everybody who helped me with this, whether it was inspiration, motivation, or ensuring I was well fed during its development.

Huge thanks to Kyoko Sakoda for his utter genius and support during this project.

I really hope you enjoy the result!

Well the idea is good (nothing wrong of that). And I like it... And btw. if we want to talk as offtopic then there thread about CCP asking ideas of making new class of ships. And one guy was making idea of building new class of ships in eve: "Hive ships" use search to see more info, or click here ... Basicly it has same idea as in this movie: Like ships undocking from some other ship. And I myself are supporting this thing 100%.

Very impressive. Particularly your ship UI.

My only real problem is it didn't really feel like EVE. It's like a trailer for a movie that doesn't end up quite like how the trailer promised. The official Dominion promo had this same problem but to a lesser degree. Trying to appeal to the masses by making it more generic space sci-fi like.

This is still pretty awesome to watch on it's own terms however. A job well done.

PS. The Prodigy's "Invaders Must Die" Album is way overused. Cool

OMGWTFAWESOME!!! , i vote ccp incorperate that UI, i would have like 4 accounts to look at how pretty it is.

awesome job guys, been hearing about this for weeks and it certainly delivered.


PS. i also like the ships breaking up when they die instead of the one type of wreck fits all method lower than a carrier ccp uses :)

Weren't you saying just the other day that you wanted to talk to somebody about using unreal 3 engine AlleyKat? ;)


Yup, because I had the same lightbulb moment that I think Kale had, except mine was a few weeks ago and Kales' (I'm guessing) must have been 7-12 months ago.

The bar has been set pretty high...and I literally cannot praise the efforts of Kale ét all enough for dedication to the realisation of their creative vision. But the thing that really impresses me the most is the camera work. It truly is sublime. Tracks, zooms, dolly, swish cutting between everything on grid - it is masterfully choreographed and composited.

Excellent video, its always nice to see EVE ships explode in hull crunching detail.

However if I had been flying that Rifter that crow wouldn't have stood a chance.

I really don't see the problem here... If you want to make EVE cinematically attractive, some liberties HAVE to be taken. I'd much rather watch this than a video of an FC setting up a gate camp and calling primaries. This is why it's EVE fiction; it takes place in the EVE universe but it has its own backstory and circumstances.


Once again, excellent job! (can we has moar?)

Edit:
Just for future reference, the voices get drowned out a bit by the music right around the time that the hostile fleet cynod in. Watch out for that in the future.

This was intentional, to allow the audience to hear the sound effects. What the Falcon pilot says is pretty non-essential.

If I might add one thing. Since the voice overs did get drowned a bit at places, intentional or not, how about making a rather small and uninterrupting but yet easy to read subtitle somewhere on the screen? Subtitles in general makes it a bit less "movie-like" but it frustrates me personally more when voices get drowned out. Personal opinion, but would be much appriciated Smile

Absolutely fabulous work! Impressive choreographed battles, really good voice acting, interesting set. It has it all! Except for pretty graphics. Gawd those textures are horrible, but I don't blame you for that. Clearly limitations of the engine.

But 11/10, easily! GOOD WORK!

I thought it was cliche, while it had eve things in it doesn't feel anything like eve. It does a good job of pounding in how gay faction warfare is though.
