This idea can bring some 'fresh air' to game ;)

New race who can esentionaly live without pos and stations.
Old terran nomads ... who come acros vasts of space and meet eve-citizens ;)

-huge vesels made from tons of scrapmetal :D
-ship with great hulls and low but common repir abilities to armor and shield rechargers.
-good in mining/reprocesing/slavaging
-they can asimiliate all tech they found...
-live to be free, free to live where they want

If this is to hard to impelemneted just new way of live in space for some of us.
What we have now: (REV 2)

-remote hull repairs modules.
-refining capital ships (?)

What we need:
-mothership-mini station.
-mobile capitl: ship, ammo and modules factories...
- or diferent ships like ships that have more firepower with level of pilots, like growing ships. No mod, no weapon in normal therms. When you level up you decide to what way your ship will grow.

It is possible to 'be' nomad? :D

Have nice day

Nope :D

But must be oposite way to Constelation sov...
-You are 'full' mobile with your corp.
-No one will 'ride' you and you loose all bilion isk structures to someone who just have mood for doing this.
-Your 'hit and run' tactic can do somethnig
-Maybe some 'deep space' skill will be usefull.

Just wondering how it can work in Eve universum.

i have played the demo and trust me. that game is one of the most sadest ones i have ever seen (some of it's concepts was interesting) but considering how poor they made the game one of the most pathetic ones i have ever seen. (and considering that i rarly ever give any real critizism to any game at all paticualrly negative one, this sould clearly state how bad i think that was)

now back on topic

If you are sugesting that there should be a new playeable race avaleable i'd have to say no at this time for several reasons and i am going to start naming them up here

1. CCP have enough problems balanceing the curent race's ships

2. A Race The Old Terran nomads does (altho if implimented corectly) not make since from a story prespective since firstly every survivor is in a way the Only survivors of Humanity in the EVE galexy.

3. I can't se how the concept of asimilate all the tech they can find can be balanced not to mension how are they suposed to asimilate it?

4. huge vessals made from scrapmetal makes me think more of rogue drones than old terran nomads and furthermore. how can they have survived the time since the eve gate shutted down till curent eve time? i just dont se anyone have enough powersupply to handle that long time.

to conclude this.. the race you are describing have no place in the curent eve time, granted that one did manage to find a temporal distortion field that these kind of ships could arive in i will still say that even tho a race of these kind could exist it will ultimatly not ever become a playeable race nor should ships from that race ever become player controled ships and if they did, the quality of them would be so poor that you could kill it with a noob ship.
sorry for being so incredibly blunt but i just dont se how this will happen. especialy before Jove become playeable race.

i do see his idea, a group of humans, set across space in vast ships to hopefully regain contact with colonies of the eve universe... but i agree, balancing of current races is still going on, adding another would be confusing, and if this said race got there, they would merely, imo, be npc like, they would be of finite number and they would intergrate themselves into the current galactic structure

i disagree partially with lagar, the race could have a position, but definitely not a player based one, they would be akin to current jovian people in their finite size and npc status....

but as a playable race, no, too much work, and would probably go down badly, plus they would mostly end as alts :P

my assumtion was that they had been trying to survive in eve (in some hidden remote part of it) and thus i ruled out the liklyness as imposible but on the posibility of having them travel from their corner of the universe to eve system is by far more likly than what i previusly thought however yet again not player based one and i am not sure they had to be on par with the jovian race.. infact they could be quite more powerfuller than jove actualy is. this is asuming that one is not basing their power compared to the curent Jovian ships that is intentionaly to powerfull and are almost exlusivly used by dev staff.

If another race is 'too much' - dont worry :]

This thread is rather like 'new way of play'.
Corps wihout pos, outpost and rest. But self efficient and strong enough to survive.
Who knows, eve is groving and there should be more ways to play.

And little word about implementation.
Almost 60% is already deplyed in Eve... only few ships with research and mobile factories (+ ore capital for helping in mining).

That means: not too much to do.

well i did thought that this was the concept of the titan actualy. since it was described as a mobile base the first time i read about it.. this has however been degenerated to a simple large powerfull fleet leading ship.

hopefully they'll try to get one of this magnitude sometime in the future but that's not even visseable on the sky till many.. many years.
