I've posted a dev blog on walking on stations, to clear things up a little.

Having seen it at Fanfest I thought it was rather amazing and it looks like, if implemented correctly, it will be REALLY awesome for the people who want that extra immersion in game. I've always wanted to see my character completely rendered and this will be how!!

Also, if I remember how they talked about it, it won't be a requirement so if you don't want to you won't have to.

I think its pretty darn cool but thats just uber-geeky me! Cool

1st, having actually read it. Looks awsome, but TBH if I want to play an FPS I'll buy an FPS.

\o/ Great work!! I can't wait for this feature to make it into the game. It's part of the EVE Universe I've been waiting for since beta. Smile

with regard to interaction of npcs etc.

I would hope that this would not be "forced" upon those that did not one to participate in this kind of game-within-a-game.

Id much rather click my science screen button and set some research jobs, then walk down mils of hallways, through airlocks, accross a hanger deck and into a science lab, talk to a Scientist and ask him/her to "work on researching another ME point please..."

Im not saying don't do it, im saying allow us to choose either path, is all...

Awesome blog.

One thing I think folks might be not seeing, is that the work and research being done doesn't have to benefit EVE alone. With upcoming MMO projects CCP's doing based on White Wolf IP, having realistic figure movement and interaction technology can make those worlds come alive, not just EVE's.

I look forward to seeing where this heads in the future. The incremental approach is definitely a wise one to take.

Interesting.

So we will have a "act rude" button? maybe an "be official about stuff" button too? how about "practical joke mode"? ;)

and last, but not least for those last and the least, a "Drunk" button, inducing chaos in social responses and wobbling. ;) :)

I think that's kinda what he was getting at with the 3rd paragraph under the game design section. I read that as meaning that you can, if you want, wander through the station and find your agent sitting at his desk, or carry your BP from your hangar to the lab. But you can equally sit in your pod and call the agent on the station intercom, or page the lab and tell them to come collect your BP (i.e. the current UI that we know and love).

After all, we are the rock stars of the Eve universe. And while a rock star can choose to worry about mundane little details, they have the luxury of avoiding them when they want to.

Can we have exotic dancers following us (not you, goat dudesConfused)?

On more serious note, my ingame character is chainsmocker. Are you going to stick "that will harm younger persons" policy when it comes to such thing?

Ah if only murder in a station is only possible when no one can see you do it, else you get thrown to the wolves. Aka The Ship.

You can always spot the guy that didn't read the blog.

Quote:
There are a lot of services within stations at the moment being offered via a UI that we are used to and enables us to perform complex actions quickly. There are no plans for disabling any of these UI elements or replacing them with “real world" experiences, such as having to walk to a repair shop to have your ship fixed or spend hours tracking down agents in dark corridors. We might have you doing similar tasks, for added immersion, but we’ll never ruin the existing experience for people who want to be quick about their business in station so that they can hurry out and get back to podding miners.


Now, back on topic. I love this. I think it's awesome.

But unless it's tied into other game play issues, its nothing more than fluff. Now, I'm ok with fluff. But wouldn't it be like 10x cooler if you could bored a derilict ship and fight thru the crew to kill the pod pilot and steal the ship? (derilict being less than 20% hull, or some such)

Or fighting thru a hoard of NPC marines (or pod pilots) to take over a station. Or , well, I could talk all day about what you could add to eve with this sort of system. But I'll stop here for now.

I love the ideas this gnerates in my head here is one for you to look at Idea.

For PvP you could ahve virtual sprting arenas Similar if not the same as this...

Mech combats for example would be cool with the ability to buy a Mech rig and upgrade it for a price to take part in some eve galaxy wide tournement for example. Or just to have a friendly fight with a friend.

Point is the idea of station interaction will add a lot to eve.

Good blog! Im assuming the first version will take a few years though. That sort of stuff is pretty complex... but it will be very cool if you pull it off. I'll be here for it when you do. :)

Please please please post more about it! It's all entirely fascinating! As someone with socialising issues I find the whole method of how CCP and your researchers plans to implement the socialising fascinating (and a learning experience, tbh). I'm curious how your lab will implement individuality and reactions. For example if you and your CEO just had an argument or a big feud why would you salute him (if that is a default 'show of respect' a corp members shows to their CEO) in the hallway on a station?

This is fascinating; please keep us updated!

I dont know what the initial plans are for how to control these, but i think it would be soo much better if we controlled these characters with the mouse in the sameway we control our ships in space (think bladerunner game, indiana jones games etc) rather than using keyboard like an FPS.

That would suck imo.

This is very cool. I wouldn't also mind seeing the option to either rent a customizable apartment or getting a room at the local hotel.

A long time ago I played Neocron, *sigh I know, but the one thing I really liked was the option of gettin a customizable apartment. Buy furniture, paintings, and so on.

If you actually read the blog, you'd realize that this post is a waste of effort.

Nice post, it answered a lot of questions many of us had.
It only has that common bug of not knowning the difference between "to" and "too", "of" and "off", but that's SO nordic-like, it's perfectly excusable. :)

I imagine your name would be potentially harmful if smocking were harmful. I don't know exactly what smocking is though -- covering someone with a smock?
