I think what we are seeing is Eve in 24 months. And realistically all the Incarna bits in 12.

lol



The most defficult part of Incarna, the avatars, animation, and customization, is done. As is their system for building maps and areas (we'll see it in in a week or so on Sisi). It's not much to go from there to multiplayer areas and pistols.

CCP... The video looks great and all but, we're still waiting for the planetary flight and territorial combat you promised at fanfest October 2004 !

Also the tanks, planetary land based defences/turrets, troop transport shown at the fanfest 2008.

Last time I flew spaceships over planet surfaces was back in Frontier: Elite 2 Shocked

You poor bugger, the atmospheric flight video was fake as was made clear at the 2009 fanfest by CCP Hellmar I believe. It was put together by an unkown member of staff as nothing more than bit of fun and was shown at fanfest as a joke. There is in fact a solid piece of EVE canon that rules out the possibility of taking any of our spaceships in to an atmosphere, and that is that tritanium is apparently explosive in an atmoshpere.

Pretty pictures and trailer... but if this update is going to be anything like the last three updates we will probably just be dissapointed.

Dominion: Awesome trailer / ****ty expansion that filled the game with lag
Tyrannis: Pretty cool trailer / PI clickfest introduced.. and not much else
Incursion: Another awesome trailer / We got uhh.. new char portraits and pve half the community didnt' want?

All three riddled with bugs some of which still aren't fixed.

I'd say this new expansion will most likely follow the same trend. Cool, shiney pictures followed by a "meh" update.

If I'm not mistaken (and I very well could be) the "Employer" is watching an overview of the battle and it looks like things are about to take a serious turn for the worse, and armored division has reinforced the area his DUSTIES are attacking.

Since the whole point of hiring DUST players is to take an area without destroying the infra-structure, and since that apparently is NOT going to happen in this case, the "Employer" has 2 options.

1: Go ahead with plan A and commit the (presumably expensive) close air support units he just promised, although that looks like a risky (and costly) gamble at that point. And honorable "employer" would have taken the risk, if for no other reason than to honor his agreement and at the very least help cover his hired mercs retreat.

2: Or cancel the promised close air support, cut your loses, and institute plan B... namely nuke your competitor from orbit hopefully before they have a chance to react. Of course this option loses the existing infra structure, your hired mercs, and your honor... but it eliminates the competition for the resource you wish to harvest and you don't waste money throwing reinforcements away in a futile effort. Presumably it also maintains the element of surprise as even in EVE your opponent may not expect you to throw away your living pawns quite so mercilessly.

We don't know if the girl is the main characters competitor, or if she is someone connected to the Mercs keeping an eye on him in case of a double cross.

Either way, it doesn't end up well for him... or apparently for his ground bombarding Dread. Smile

Makes me wonder if they were at war with each other, if they were in low or null sec, or if by chance ground bombardment in high sec will allow in-space retaliation from the attacked party. Now wouldn't that be interesting.

Yes... because he totally isn't going to clone back in, hunt the woman down, and kill her.

Thus the cycle of EVE goes on.

Absolutely. Smile

Of course, with him no longer in a position to oversee things directly for a bit (being in a clone tube most likely elsewhere) he won't be able to keep an eye directly on the rapidly deteriorating situation his Dread is in.

Clone or not, a bullet in the brain pan tends to send a fairly clear message (and it's hard on the implants).

Wouldn't that be excellent? Very Happy

Doubtful though, as her attack seems coordinated with the events on the ground and the attack on his Dread outside.

Still, you have to love a game where shooting someone in the head would be considered a warning shot.

Wake me up when it's not a CGI trailer, but actual gameplay.


idiot, most of that stuff is real time, you can even see the polygon edges on the characters, the only thing which might have been enhanced are the sprites and textures.

also, do you even know what CGI stands for?, do you want a drawn trailer instead, as CGI stands for Computer Generated Images


Also, whats up with half the posters in this thread not getting the point and getting bitter over various expansion trailers? This is not a trailer for an expansion, its a video showing the dreams of the Devs behind Eve, its a trailer that shows what they would want eve to be in the future.

Also, some dude commented on the facial animation again, its real time. You might want to read up a bit on 3D, Animation and Game Engines before making comments like that. But if you think you can do a better job, im sure that CCP has a job opening for you.

At least give the devs their due credit for making an engine that is capable of making trailers of this quality.

yes, i mad.

it's where there's a problem ; we are only immortal on our pod, not outside them.

well i suppose the new lore for clonning technology for marines of dust will be used, but for now, we don't really know what would happen to the guy if he's killed on the station

As was stated very clearly at the fanfest, shortly before and again after this video was shown, CCP explained that the it was made using Incarna as it stands on their in house system, DUST 514 as it stands at the moment and of course EVE. It would seem that the only part of the video clearly added in using after effects was the pull back from the planetary surface of DUST 514 up in to orbit in EVE. If you had paid any attention to anything that was said you could have avoided looking like a gigantic arse.

CCP got the vision right, the trailer is very nice.

The discussion about it is going to be crap or going to be even better is totally unknown for everyone.

Also, with the amount of people they have been hiring, i hope they get the ball rolling a bit faster now.

Clearly you've not up to speed with the relationship between normaly humans (such as the mercs on the planet...and more or less everyone else in New Eden) and Pod Pilots.

We're functionally immortal, they aren't. And as far as we (and fluff) are concerned, their lives aren't worth a damn. You are aware there are little randoms running about on players ships right? Now think about how many ships you've destroyed or lost. Well if you aren't aware, it just further anchors the concept... Regular people in New Eden either hate or fear us, generally a mixture of the two. We have a psychotic disregard for human life and a ficklness that rivals anything you care to compare it to.

If I (as a capsuleer) had hired a group of mercs for some ground assault and then it stopped being convenient and I had to leave, sure I'd nuke the site from orbit to deny my opposition, whoever they may be, whatever it was we were fighting over. Fairly straight forward to me.

Just thought I'd help you understand who you are Smile
