With the approach of incarna comes an environment where we can walk around in our internet apartment alone just like we do in real life. With this exciting new environment comes the opportunity for exciting new mechanics like watching TV alone or sitting alone in the dark or maybe we can take a shower. While this might be everything that makes the common eve player happy with the exception of showering I think we can demand something more because CCP listens to the CSM and implements their good suggestions.

Lets dare to dream. Lets get fish tanks for our space homes.

Fish have been a staple of science fiction for a long time. They were in mass effect 2, hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy, and that star trek movie with the whales (which are sort of fish). They would also be pretty cool in EVE.

Players could start out with a basic fresh water fish tank. The number of fish they could put in the tank would be based on their skill level in fish husbandry. There would also be skills in fish diplomacy since some types of fish don't get along and need to be carefully managed so they won't attack each other. Also, cleaning (reduces the amount of cleaning you have to do), feeding (reduces the amount of feeding you have to do), and I dunno maybe water management so your fish don't get sick. Tech 2 fish tanks could handle salt water.

There could also be mods for fish tanks, like rocks, seaweed, and little floating divers (or maybe spacemen because this is a space game). Basic fish could be extracted from ocean and terrestrial planets using a specialized extractor (third world children since that's mostly who catches them in the real world). Specialized fish would be rare drops from faction spawns and officers, like Hakim's Modified Trout, or maybe they could even add DED 11 and C7 wormholes where deadspace fish and mysterious tech 3 sleeper fish could be found. It would also add vibrancy to the New Eden economy as players buy and sell the rarest, most desirable fish to take back to their apartment and watch in their tank alone.

Anyways, if elected to the CSM I will go to Iceland and I will bring back their promise that they will fix blasters and give us fish tanks in Incarna.

This is pretty much the best idea I've seen on these forums for as long as I've been playing.

What kind of training time multiplier would Fish Husbandry have?

fish husbandry is a pretty basic skill allowing you to manage from 1 to 5 fish, so probably a 1x training time, but advanced fish husbandry and fish empathy would be higher level skills allowing you to keep 3 fish per level and 5 fish per level respectively and have 3x and 5x training times because have you ever seen a tank with a lot of fish in it? I bet not because that's really hard to do.

Question: What about Supercapital pilots? Will we be able to install a fish tank aboard our ships so that we too may enjoy the art of fish husbandry?

Will there be corporate fishtanks for storing and viewing corp fish?

I think each ship could have its own fish tank that reflects it. Like frigates could have a bowl with a goldfish, faction ships could get a salt water tank with some colorful fish, and capitals could have one of those really big salt water tanks with maybe an eel or sea turtle

I think supercapitals should have something even more special, like a wall converted to a fish tank so every time you walk around your supercapital home you feel like you're in a really classy chinese restaurant

I think there should be, but there'd have to be a special director rank for fish management. You'd want someone trusted to manage your fish that wouldn't forget to feed them or steal them and put them in his own tank.


Woah check out these fish some of them look like they're from space and would be good designs for EVE fish.

Could we have like different racial fish looted from NPC wrecks, with like T2 faction and officer fish?

Also I don't see the Lionfish which is the most outer-spacey fish ever.

...also SLEEPER FISH from wormholes and incursions.

I don't know how much about fish might ultimately be covered by the NDA so I have to be careful but as a sneak preview I'm just going to say angler fish. Draw what conclusions you may.

What is your plan for T3 fish? I saw that new Piranha movie the other day and I would really like to make a fish like that so that I could have it fight other players fish. Perhaps this could be part of Incarna? Fish fights?

I think the wonderful thing about a fish based system is just how much it can be expanded in creative, new directions. Maybe tech 3 fish could be produced by breeding different fish together then having them fight? I don't know, the world of fish is huge and just contemplating all the directions we can go is exciting and a little humbling.

Fish offer a clear direction beyond tech 3 as well. What mysterious fish have the jovians created from their mastery of genetics during their millenia of isolation? Do you dare find out?

Also what surrounding goods would be created? Are the fish just fish, with the system just involving the fish, or is there going to be PI involved to make fish food and BPOs for T2 fish tanks?

As I mentioned in the op, you'd need rocks, seaweed, little floating dudes, pirate treasure chests, and even coral. Fish tanks are a very modable environment.

How would you deal with automated tank-cleaning and fish management programs such as H-Fish and TankRipper?

That's pretty tough, but personally I feel that taking proper care of your fish tank is an important part of owning it. How can you build a proper emotional connection to your fish if you use a bot?

Also, I think the EVE soundtrack should be redone by Andrew W.K.

Do I want to party hard?

Hell yeah I do.

Do you think we could have a fish-growing interface like that old "educational" game Odell Lake

Do those even go in fish tanks?

I think it would be very dangerous to expand the feature too much, but then again maybe this lack of ambition is why I'm not running for the CSM.

This is an excellent idea. I, for one, love fish sticks and enjoy having them in my mouth.

Oh, I forgot about this.

I'm still running, and I still promise fish.

I will also attempt to have the value of isk moved to a gold standard. CCP will be required to have gold or at least some shiny plastic on hand at all times to lend real world value to our isk.

I will only support this if I can get Kelley to take care of my fish because I won't remember and they will die.

I think you should be able to buy clones for your fish as well, but Kelly would work too.
