Although full ambulation will help with game immersion i personally am only looking forward to one aspect. Poker. If i can win isk, in game.... ooh how perfect would that be? Nothing like some good honest card playing to solve alliance stalemates, arguments and bank problems.



Poker would be great. But why force you to stop playing EvE so you can play poker? Allow us to play poker while mining, traveling, exploring, ratting, POS sieging, or any of the myriad other activities available.

Ambulation is not required for Poker.

There are a number of threads that have cropped up discussing the Ambulation trailer from the Game Developer's Conference spotlighted by those fine folks over at Ten Ton Hammer. In an effort to consolidate the discussion into one thread (and prevent any "OMG, not another thread!" replies, of which I am sure someone will say the same to me Laughing), I'm posting and stickying this thread.

In regards to the video itself, here's a sequence of events. The room where the video starts with the Amarr female and Caldari male is a map room. One of a number of functions will be that of a 'war room', where corporation officers will be able to use the map as a sort of white board for planning attacks.

There is a hallway with a nice water effect to the sides of the pathway.

The second room (or third scene) is a meeting chamber. Depending on corporation resources and the type of station (among other factors), the decor can be changed. You could consider the Gallente female a corporation recruiter in this shot.

There is another hallway transitioning to the docking bay. The docking bay itself is designed with an eye at trying to give the scope of just how big EVE ships are.

After boarding the ship (an off-screen event in the video), the Zealot leaves the station and you can see the increased detail on the surface of the station. There have been some recent Dev Blogs with static images, now you can see one in the EVE environment.

Other information: Those players that do not wish to interact with the full-body avatar aspect of the game will not be forced to do so, a la the now defunct Earth & Beyond and their station interface. In-station servers will be seperate from the space servers, so there will be little (if any) lag introduced into the other environment. A high quality download will be available in the future, no time frame as of yet.

Enjoy!



But like, ok, they're in space... so seriously, they shouldn't be walking around. This shouldn't be like, freaking star-trek or star wars where they have 'blahblahblah stabilizers' makng there be gravity. that's not cool at all. Ambulation totally screws up the RP for me.Rolling Eyes

Also, will there be sex? i think everyone has this fantasy about zero-g... It would really help me... role-play Embarassed

Ok i have a few questions, but not really sure where to post it, so ill do it here.

1. I watched the EVE fan fest on ambulation, and on it, it stated that each player will be able to construct their own living environment so to speak on a station and change it to how they want it etc. Now i can see this costing 100's of millions of isk, but what about new players that cant afford it, is there going to be a standard living area that all players will have, then they can upgrade as they go along or do you have to buy it from scratch. Also you when you build your own quarters, does this apply to every station or do you have to build one per station?

2. The same question applies to the clothes, are there going to be standard clothes you start off with, because at first you can pretty much gurantee the clohes will be selling for high prices, that only the super rich of eve can afford. I am asking this because the perception i got from the fan fest video on it, is that you start of bare clothed and you have to go buy your clothes.

3. Also, on there it said about on board captain quarters where you keep your clothes etc. Are you going to do different quarters per ship (eg. One for frigate class ships, crusier etc), or have a standard one that can applied to every ship?

4. On the new star map that is in a corporation office, are you going to make a feature where you can makes notes on that system? i mean for example, the perception i got is that you can basically trun a pvp op from the corp office, so if this is the case, are you going to be able to select a system, and then have an option to right a note like "enemies in system" etc?

5. Lastly, it stated on the EVE fanfest video that you can most certainly walk around on npc stations, but can you also wander around an outpost. I also heard someone ask on that fan fest clip that, as titans and motherships rival the size of stations, are you going to have corporation offices where you can hold meetings etc like that of a normal station, if this is the case, are you going to be able to wonder around titans and mother ships? If not, how would you implement.

I think thats everything

Thanks

What I am wondering is if Ambulation will open up the markets as people will need to eat, clothe themselves, sleep, etc. So maybe it'll be worth transporting dairy products as someone will want a milkshake.

*drools*

cant wait.

Im just preying my computer will be able to handle it lmao

I hope agents also are in the station, like you can talk to them etc.
It'd be awesome to see a sansha agent with like implants hanging out of their head n ****.
And blood raider agent drinking red 'wine' :P

It will be intense.

I liked the reply about looking out the window and seeing the gank squad etc.
thatd be interesting, but since they'll be on different servers it might prove difficult.

Buying/Changing clothes change your ingame avatar?

Running is essential, what if your late for a very important date? :)

Faction clothes would be interesting.

I dunno, it all looks good. GJ

Yeah, I spent a couple months camping gates in lowsec as a pirate. I loved it but... for anyone who has gone through that... They know that ambulation could only provide more fun, poker? bars? and thats just the beginning... It makes me think about becoming an economy/trader character. This is just good all around.

Now - what would be really cool is a decent text to speech converter for the Avatars. There are some reasonable ones around at the moment, I use them for text conversion of books for the poor sighted. Only thing is I am not too sure about is hearing LOL every few seconds!

Oh oh I can feel a flame heading my way... Shocked

Basically Gary, yes.
They have a completely different team working on it, a team that is developing it as alpha testing for their WoD MMOG, so it is basically just a massively, free content for EvE, and one which noone who is working on EvE ( on, like, fixing lag!!!1omgomgomg Rolling Eyes ) is busy with.
It's a lot like the premium graphics, you don't like them, you don't use them, simple :)

How about when ambulation comes in that you can bring a corps to one of someones BOTS and collect a bounty from them?

Like the bot says bring me this persons corps and I will give you this much isk.

And then you can set the bot to only except the corps from corps you trust NOT to have his/her alt do it to collect their own bounty.

Hello all, I am a new player to this game (old vet to the whole MMOG genre), currently going through the trial. I am about half way now, and so far I find this game mildly stimulating. Right now I don't really think I will continue after the trial is up....until I just heard about this ambulation idea. I absolutely LOVE the idea, and think that the idea of being able to walk around the station and maybe even my own ship would be perfect. If this is really going to happen, I would definetly sign up now, and stop myself from going back to the dreaded and awful SWG, which is the only game where you can do that kind of stuff:(. So is there any news as to when these changes might still be implemented?

Someone may have brought this up but, would it be possible to walk around in your own ship? Like going to the bridge or the engine room. Not while in space though, just while the ship is docked. This too will give a scale of the ships. Obviously for some ships they may not be possible.

There is no bridge on capsule-fitted ships.

Being able to walk around your ship has been discussed and I think I remember CCP mentioning it, but it probably won't be in the first release of Ambulation.

The chronicles indicate that graviton emitters are in frequent use, ala star-trek, and you only need to look at some of the Gallente starbases to see that the 'spinny ring' inertial style of artificial gravity is used as well.

Sorry to mess up your view, but that's how it is. Hey, if you're lucky, a future patch for ambulation might include a zero-g sandbox. Doubt it though.

Also the human body can't survive long exposure to 0G (long: years). Your muscles and bones will fade away. Think of it like sitting on your butt in a sofa for the rest of your life with a monkey bringing you all the food you need. It sounds pretty great, but it wouldn't work out.

On a sidenote, that's why you see people in the IRL spacestation working out so often when they're up there. And it's also why experiments with mammals show that they can't get them to breed without it causing major birthdefects.

Wow, just seen that clip for the first time - it looks GREAT!!! Definitely lots of love for rp-ers.

But of course, seeing this gets the possibility-juices flowing and makes one want even more - and it's really pretty obvious that the next stage would be a planetside fps/third person war sub-game (a la Battlefield games, Halo or Tabula Rasa or something like that).

Could it be that CCP are gradually angling towards making the first truly complete s-f videogame ever?

A CCP made version of PlanetSide would be mindblowing, but to my understanding the walk-on stations is a byproduct of the procedural animation which a seperate team of CCP is developing for their Vampire MMO. On the bright side, that sort of animation lends it self very well to be expanded on so we could be in for future treats.

I disagree. What makes you think that people would have jump gate technology, but would not invent gravitation stabilizers (let's just call them that way) ? Do u really think that it would be better / more comfortable / efficient for people to fly in the stations ? No gravity ? No drinks ? Everything floating in the air ? Rolling Eyes
