Lose your imagination much? Rolling Eyes Try this then. Instead of "simulator", think VR WORLD. This is just the first of many steps to attempt to create a fully realized "place" on the internet. If that doesn't work, think The Matrix only with 5000+ star systems and all of the stuff currently there plus more.

And, in a sandbox, which EVE still is, what to do is up to you.




Thanks for enlightening !! Now I got it, it is really up to me whether I will walk in a room from left to right, or in an opposite direction. Oh, I may even sit here.

I just need to use my imagination !

CCP -
This is an excellent start and looks very interesting in my opinion. However, I really would like to see you folks use your graphics skills and make my SLI GTX cards from Nvidia break into a real sweat. That would be beyond awsome.ShockedLaughing

It's taken three years to produce four buildings (one for each empire) - that's not good.

I'm really surprised people are so easily pleased.

I thought the following were being created: bars, mini-games, meeting rooms, a place where you see lesser mortals walking about.

What happened to it all?


They developed a brand new graphics engine from scratch. Exactly how long do you think that would take genius. Not only that but you're assuming that's all that is going to be released in the summer when from what I gathered captains quarters are just going to be the first part of the summer release. Did you even read the dev blog before spewing your ******edness everywhere?

It would be nice to walk in ships as well as stations. Ive always said I got a hot tub pre-equipped with an exotic dancer on the bridge of my Hulk. (Well, where do you want to be while mining? Sitting in a tank of goo?)

Clone jumping: First remember there is a 30 second timer associated with it. So what if:

You go to your character sheet and select a clone, and hit jump. Now during that 30 seconds you see (all happening automatically without your having to "drive")

You walk over to a turbolift and go to the med station.
You walk over and get into a clone storage tube. Your eyes close.
The screen fades to black, then returns.
You get out, walk to the turbolift, and go back to the CQ balcony.

And it all takes 30 seconds, so its no more time than now, but does maintain immersion.

Hope to see a dev blog on content soon.

Oh, and skill stopping and starting would be automatic too.

Probably not, before character creation, which makes us all so pretty to walk around and meet up each other for a face to face smack talk, customer acceptance for INCARNA simply would not have be possible!!

Everything sounds amazing and I am very impressed with the upcoming features. I'm also happy to hear that you are revamping how new players are exposed to the content and gameplay once they first start out in the Universe. I've mentioned this in the "mission/complex" section of the forums and truely believe the epic arcs are a great benchmark for new players as they progress in the game. As you rework the new player "crash course," I feel confident these changes will defenitely yield high dividens for CCP and our EVE Universe.

The downside to all of this is the players that are still using stone age technology. I recall when Incursion went live the help channel was flooded with issues regarding shader tehcnology during their character creation! That's not good lol. And when you touched on load times for docking .... I was caught scratching my head. I guess you guys will have to do the ol' balancing act providing the new material for those with poor PC performance and those with high performing pc's (and ineternet connection lol). Laughing

Allow us to launch a camera drone so we can still station spin. I doubt any of us wants to have a single view of their ship moving up and down. I want to admire all of its curves. This could also explain why we play in 3rd person etc. (With the UI being related to an iris implant or something).

If balcony is an option, sweet.

If customization of Captain's Quarters is available (As implied by the numbered wall sections), even better.

Allowing us to watch a camera feed of the space outside the station would practically kill 0.0 and low sec/warring corp station camps. That is a balance issue, and as awesome as it would be, i don't want the game to break.

Glad to hear it performs well, etc. Looking forward to new ships (hopefully the contest ones will come in sometime in the future) and new avatar clothing and items.

Also, as many have pointed out, we want 3d dancing models at some point of exotic dancers, a la ME2's asari. That and Slaver Hounds, hehe.

The suggestions for small work crews and animations for switching ships are good ideas, but should remain an option not only due to performance issue possibilities but also due to repetition (watching the same animation over and over forever would get on my nerves).

Good work CCP.

Alt out.

WOW, it really looks good!!!
I hope that with time we will have a lot of NPCs to interact with.

(Also good choice to start with Minmatars, this way we do not see the difference between the non finished station or the finished one Laughing)

Coolsauce. One of the neater things about the old, sadly underappreciated scifi RPG Freelancer is it's one of the few space sims that ever saw your pilot wandering around. It was just a few scripted, animated scenes but it still felt a heck of a lot more immersive than the Eve/X3 "disembodied ship head" thing or the Halo/insert-random-FPS-other-than-Deus-Ex-here "you only see your guy when he's kicking somebody's ass to advance the plot" thing.

I'll have to agree with others that the classic view should still be an option, for when people aren't wanting to do the station walking thing or are just in a hurry and don't wanna be loading a bunch more junk.

edit: Speaking of old RPGs, once this is up and going you guys ought to think about porting it to an offline RPG that's set in the Eve universe but isn't about internet spaceships. There's basically zero decent scifi RPGs out there that weren't made before 2001 so it'd be a great opportunity for everyone. Smile

Personally, I donít really want to get out of my ship. However, if there is no speed difference in getting into and out of station and I donít have to walk/run from console to console, Iíve no problem with Incarna as envisioned.

The current in station icon system is extremely quick and easy to use. Market, refit, character sheet, etc. are all instantly available with the press of a button and as such are extremely efficient. If Incarna impedes this by requiring pilots to run around, even short distances, to do the same thing, Iím going to have a serious problem with it.

As long as its still as quick and easy to refit, trade, talk to agents etc as it is now then its gotta be a good thing......Dont wanna be walking around to different consoles trying to load ammo or stuff, specially if your in a hurry.

So I'm going to be forced into the captain's quarters every time I dock? If it truly does not take any longer to load the environment, switch ships, drop off cargo, refit, etc, etc, etc than it does today, then fine.

1 picosecond longer and it's gonna be rabble rabble rabble, because I do not care about the house the meat body lives in. I am a (fictional internet spaceship game) demigod.

Also, will trade fancy quarters for return of Intaki topknots. TIA.

To be fair you get one studio apartment in every single one of the 50k stations in game. Very Happy


No, you just have one studio apartment that is carried around in the cargo hold until you dock, when automated systems plug it into the station to receive your pod.

I love it! I think this type of immersion will be great for the game and especially for the role players. However there are some questions that come to mind.

So the CQ will be in stations, right? It doesn't make sense to me that it would look exactly the same on every station. How will you get around this?

and..

I want a damn "Ready Room".

True words, but I guess that is one of the consequences of participating in a high end Game. In fact my Graphic card was smoldering down, so I decide to have a high end LP, must be a conspiracy of CCP with the Hardware industry. Ore simply, they can refuse going from their status development standard to the next to stay ahead competition.
CCP do have a lot of to catch up on by their own, doubles, but by the way they develop a money creating entertainment machine you have to keep up pace if you want to stay on top of the development and I daub this is be ruled by adjusting or justifying low end hardware. Even if only a low marginal group of players is affected by it.
The marketing strategy for the coming years in the gaming industries is targeting to the customer with abilityís to finance fancy in game stuff via PLEX (In game currency . Get yourself a second account is speaking volumes of it. On a certain point you can not sufficient participate in the game without boosting your finances by at least one PLEX. Of course this will lure in the extra money otherwise spend on movie tickets.
People will accept it if the service justify extra expense!
CCP it up on you now, where is my Commander quarters mini bar? With INCARNA there will be players running a business in the stations never ever set foot on a ship.

Second live I hear you coming,going to space!

CCP Chiliad: Could you please clarify if we will be able to deactivate the default option of loading the Avatar view? The only things I want from stations are ships, fitting and repairs nothing else. I made a promise to leave the game if the Avatar view became mandatory and I will do so if it is.

Will we get the airlock in December, The docking bay next summer, and a corporation office in following winter expansion?

Honestly, the tiny bite size chunks is starting come off as you don't trust yourself to release something that works.
