who here used to play Master Of orion II?

you just got your planet setup and then all of a sudden a giant space amoeba/dragon/crystal invades your system...

What i suggest is using the Incursion template and tweeking it so it can be used for Space Monster Invasions...

They would be random and when killed will drop ancient goodies that can be used for Tech II named gear invention!!!

but why would i defend against wildlife? cuss ifyou dont then all your PI gets destroyed in the system!

Hmmm. Space monsters would be kinda too out there for the eve universe imo.

However.

If instead of space monsters there is some sort of zerg like incursion that is tied to both eve and dust then that could be the next big project after incarna. The eve side of the game has to kill the zerg fleet before it reaches a planet but if it makes it to the planet the dust side of the game would have to deal with it.

Could be epic tbh.

I'v always thought that eve is quite unique in the fact its not your usual humans vs aliens type space game.

Just my view anyway.

Used to play? I still play it when I visit my dads. Master of Orion 2 was awesome. Master of Orion 3 though, they broke. Made me cry. :(

As for random events that aren't incrusion like. I support.

Older vets will remember the parasites that used to attach themselves to your ship, in earlier releases of EVE. They dropped off when you jumped to the next system, and were harmless. It should be relatively easy to re-introduce them, maybe with some nasty effect on your ships systems. I dunno if anyone has screenies of them, it was a long time ago.

Jove, super-sleepers, other pirate factions, earthlings -- all these things could use the Incursion system for invasions without resorting to space dragons. And givent he weirdness of the Jovians and the creepiness of the sleepers, both of them could have larger, monstrous single-threat invasions which would have the same effect.

I can see how you could have 'space monsters' without inventing anything out-of-place in the EVE universe. Rogue drones.

They already have icky tentacle Dominix's. Just have them assemble something suitably large and monstrous.

What do you mean "used to" ?
MoOII is still my favorite game to play when I can't play EvE for whatever reason... Razz

And to answer your question, I'd love for there to be those monsters, it'd be sweet Very Happy

This is an often encountered issue: People want the "aliens" to look alien instead of having a human face (sort of) like the Sansha do. But game mechanic wise it would be pretty much the same.

No, I do not want "space monsters" (besides the fedo) as it pull focus away from human interaction (players and NPCs alike) towards non-human species.

Though, those gigantic ball looking shapes the rogue drones have to be working on could maybe be the next thing for incursions.
