1. Because its cool. One of the annoying things about basically all space sims is all you get is a 'cockpits eye view' of everything. I'll cite the X-Universe games as being the worst at this, where all you get to see, ever, is looking straight ahead out your ship (even when docked).

2. Because its free. Since its apparently part of the White Wolf project, it doesnt cost CCP anything in terms of money or resources, that wouldnt otherwise be spent on said White Wolf game.

3. Because it gives people something to whine about. Twisted Evil

Anyone even remotely looking to tap to a beat should be open for PvP.

Ummm because it is a UNIVERSE and there is alot more to the game then sitting in a ship all day and killing people.
There are tons of others things going on around you too let you pew pew all day.

They have already stated that the stations will not be on same servers per say so lag will not be a issue.

Think of what they could do.
There are a lot of ideas being thrown around and they have lots of plans

But here is one for you.
Think of a fleet commander who could sit in a station and view a map of the surrounding systems with icons representing ships of your fleet and others of the enemy.
Imagine being able to see all that and be able to command a wing to go here and a wing to go there.
Something that can not be done now and definitely not something you would want to do from a ship.

Yes it means eye candy as well but that is part of the emersion into the game.

Look up at the picture of WOW (I presume it is WOW) see those cartoons now imagine EVE being like that.
Now that would be nasty.

Someday it will be walking on planets and then who knows what.

So lighten up and enjoy the ride and think of all the potential and get off the negative side for awhile you will feel a lot better.

Holy crap was it really neccesary to start yet another thread about this? You could have simply posted in one of the 189 other threads about this.

Maybe you should read some of the Bev Blogs and other stuff pertaining to this. If you did, then you would know that if you don't want to have anything to do with this, you don't have to!!!

I've told you a billion times to stop exaggerating !

Purpose ? Why do it ?
Well... the answer is... "why not ?"

They're (sort of re)using a graphic client developed for White Wolf's upcoming MMORPG, the "WIS" servers/cluster will be separated from TQ as much as possible, WIS will be purely optional, the developement team for WIS is almost completely separated from the main EVE dev team... so yeah, "why not".

I agree with what was said before It adds more life and fun. (Poker would be a fun way to earn some isk if they happen to put something like that in.)

Though It would be nice if "the powers that be" would for a limited time expand the restrictions of the portrait exchange servise and let people change portraits with other bloodlines/genders before it comes out since this will add more of an rp element.

CCP probably puts in something for people to do in the stations... maybe some virtual beers and a virtual girlfriend? :)

I really hope Hellman109's picture doesnt come true... even though its kind of a social behavior to just sit around smiling at the silly dancing. Smile

How about being able to hire people into your corp while inside your awsome board room face to face?

Ask why we should have a forum?

Life is awsome except for the jerks. We do not ask that jerks have to leave the game so why not add one of the best things in life, face to face interaction and all the goes with it.

So you do not like WoW, ok, I do not either, but why, is it because they walk around in WoW?

Why compare WoW to EVE, it is not the same.

There are other great games out there that have players walk around you know.

But that's ok you have a right to your opinion, but I suggest to relax and try to enjoy the extra content or ignore it.

P.S. So these guys are dancing for a few moments in a game, big deal, gee it is so horable, who cares. They do it a lot in CoH/CoV, and that is still a great game for sure.

P.S.S. How about a huge Minmater rally against slavery? Cool don't you think?

Walking on stations is ok with me but walking on planets would be totally cool

Posted - 2007.04.27 07:15:00 - [20]

ccp, is planning to have a fantasy role playing base on eve, so the walking in station would be the first start to get the eve player interrested

I agree, even is real life it is pretty cool also.

I would love to go on intergalactic investigations myself. And looking for clues in those big awsome cities would be awsome.

Right now I like to look at the forums when to tired to be in space but I could walk? now that would be imersive and I would spend no less time in space.

You mean a Sci-Fi role playing base don't you? Now that would be a welcome addition to the online gameing industry.

What is the purpose of Eve Online?

I'm wondering how corporation conflicts will play out. What happens when your No. 1 enemy who you've been tracking down for the last month, walks into the bar and sits down beside you.

To put in station footage at the beginning of eve movies.

What's the purpose in adding anything?

To improve Eve of course. I actually think for ambulation the devs have taken the smartest approach possible this time (i.e. adding some basic functionality that you already get in Eve and nothing more).

This gives them the oppertunity to test the waters with this whole new aspect and see what is going to work and what isn't without creating a huge mess for themselves. Once they get a proper feel to how it works with the player base they can start adding new content/features for it.

Yes what we are going to get intially will seem fairly pointless from a functional/content point of view but the potential possibilities it opens up further down the road are huge and quite possibly worth it.

More possibilities?

I think this concept will definitely need a separate server just for walking on stations.
It's a beginning and it could end up in interesting additional action.

I think it's just giving our characters a better identity beyond ship types, skills and fittings.

However ... let's wait for CCP. This step is not a must have but it's a logical evolution.

... it is a new content for 2008.

... would be a foundation for future contents.

... free upgrades to eVe from World of Darkness.

... fun and social factor.

... all the cool kids, uhm, games do it.

If you don't like it, don't dock. The rest of us love to emote and immerse in new contents. Rolling Eyes

Why not welcome the potential of completely new content. It could be a complete dog and a dreadful waste of time.

however, imagine getting all the CEOs of an alliance together in the boardroom, and being able to go over batle tactics for a proposed invasion, and higlighting all the various points with interactive graphics and such like. Making sure everyone is in the righ place at the right time. In fact all sorts of fleet operations could be controled from in station I guess.

It could be really sweet. Either way, I certainly will not be putting the dampener on this before I have had a chance to try it out in game.
