Wow, incredible job. To many this might seem like a small thing in their daily eve, but it will definitely add another layer of entertainment and depth. And great job re-dispersing them throughout all space there. This should be fun.

Thanks CCP Bettik! We appreciate your hard work.

Cool

This project mostly involved copying sites, renaming them, tweaking them a little bit so they aren't all exact copies of one another


waitwhat? Well since the first quote was hoping my enjoyment will be related to my knowledge of how much effort these required, and it apparently took not much more than a lot of cntrl+c/v, my anticipated expectation of entertainment has deflated accordingly.

Maybe this is why eve's pve sucks? too much copy/paste?

ignorance is bliss.

in other news, the lag monster is still terrorizing the spacelanes, rockets still suck, AFs are still missing something, PI is omgawful, FW is still pointless (although more profitably pointless now, thanks!), and the Socket Closed assassin still strikes.

I've noticed in the photos provided in the blog that some of the carbon copy dots are in the Jove empire space and the areas beyond which are inaccessible to regular eve players (unless I'm missing something). Dose this mean that Jove space may soon be made accessible to the general eve population?

Comparing this post to the blog:

Quote:
Greetings EVE players,

My name is CCP Bettik and this is my first dev blog. Given my aversion to writing lengthy texts, this endeavour may seem somewhat miraculous. I am sure that my paltry attempt at documenting my work will go quite unnoticed in the annals of time. However, this is not to say that EVE will be forgotten. On the contrary, I believe that EVE will be discussed long after my time, and I hold that belief with the utmost joy.


Add to it the line "This dev blog is a translation", I get the impression Bettik's English isn't the best and someone/something translated his blog for him. Someone with an unusually expansive vocabulary and a love of the British spelling of words.

EDIT: Also looking forward to hunting down more of these sites.

Not just anyone can interpret Bettik's language and turn it into pure, linguistic gold. It takes a hero (or two) for that task.

Very good. I think that changes like this that make certain parts of space more unique are great for the game.

One of the main complaints that new players have is that every system is just like the next, a few planets, a sun, stations, and empty space. This addition will add just a little bit more texture to the game world. Hope to see more changes like this in the future!

SUGGESTION:

As long with this nice and lovely work, maybe... mabye... could be possible...

to move the "beacon" object in the overview out of the Large collidable object (or whatever is called)?.
- maybe giving it the category of a cellestial?.
- or at least moving it to a more suitable group?

Beacons are a very nice and optimum cellestial reference in the PVE content (even more in 0.0) but it doesn´t work that if you want to see them you must also see x other objects filling the overview.

The beacons in these new sites are indeed Celestial Beacons which are in the Celestial category.

The reason we don't use that type of beacon in all of our PVE is that items in the Celestial category are hard-coded to show up on everyones overview. This would be bad for regular PVE. We do however use this for the factional warfare missions to promote PVP in those missions.

Nice one guys! This is the sort of content that is really cool as it brings some texture and richness to the environment. It is realistic to expect that a universe that has been traversed and explored for thousands of years would have wrecks, abandoned space stations, the remains of old factory sites, labs, temples, old battle sites etc - most probably would be marked when discovered to prevent space traffic impacting them - the lonely, out of the way ones would almost certainly become home to undesirables who had been driven out from ordinary society and were looking for a home or a base to ambush unwary travellers!

As you say, I hope we 'stumble' across them as finding something new in space is one of the best bits of Eve - we don't have enough 'Easter Eggs'. Don't make em too easy to find please, the joy is in the discovery!!


Good work all!

I love the new landmarks, especially the Roden Center description, but is there any chance of having them listed someplace other than under the 'DED Agent Site Report' on the map? It's going to make finding the actual agent sites rather difficult if it goes live this way.

Thank you for the new content, and for spreading it out for all to enjoy. My one complaint would be this. Space is supposed to be vast, dark, and mysterious. Where's the mystery in fixed celestial beacons ? Or for that matter the adventure, sense of the unknown, or exploration ? Once again, thanks for the content, but after 7 years we need to perhaps start talking about putting some aspects of the unknown into the game and expanding on the concept of exploration.

Is there any intention to develop some Eve Lore landmark sites within these dungeons? Tourist attractions?
Examples would be:

Amarr / Minmatar battle site recorded in the Emperium Age book.
The destroyed Concord station.
Minmatar gravitational gate network.
Amarr Monuments and empire estates?
