After reading Eris Discordia's newest dev blog, you are going to want to run, not walk, to this year's Fan Fest. Attendees will have the opportunity to demo walking in stations, but everyone can get a taste of what's to come by reading Eris Discordia's blog here.

It's some carrot+stick kind of thing, isn't it?

Or wait..you're basically telling me:
"We're gonna have lotsa fun, AND YOU WON'T BE THERE BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO TIME, LOSER! HA! YARRRR!!"

ohh another dev blog on vaporwarez


:P


Eris, I appreciate the time and effort your putting into this feature. I just really hope that once Ambulation is introduced we, the players, are not forced into having to use ambulation.

I understand why adding it well help increase Eve's general appeal. I also understan how in someways this is also a partial beta for ambulation in the WhiteWolf/CCP MMO of the future.

...but for myself, I signed up to play an interwebs space ship game, so I expect to be staring at the back thrusters of my ship all the time. Not the back arse end of a humaniod shaped arrangement of pixels.

Not sure the game needs this to be honest.

It a bit like the premium graphics, nice eye candy and I bet it looks good on trailers etc but does it add to the game. Nope, it hammers my performance and quite frankly imho it's add nothing to the game.

I fear the same will apply to the WIS feature. It will look good but after the initial try out, most people will stay locked in their ship to avoid another "session change in progess".

I am sure you folks are putting a lot of effort into it, but not sure Eve needs it.

Word on the street is it's the same engine World of Darkness will use to let you run around.

Been following this for a while and it looks very interesting and "unique" feature for a game like EVE.
I have a Question for the Devs though, When can we expect the first initial release? Before or around Xmas would be great.
Among others I am quite eager to give this a run Very Happy

Nice to have lots of dev blogs now.

I don't expect more from WiS than opportunities to take money away from others, so I'll hardly be disappointed. Twisted Evil

Does this mean Titan pilots will be able to dock once ambulation is released? Shocked

Whell... with drinking in stations comes getting drunk in stations... with getting drunk in stations comes jumping back into your pod before the buzz wears off and trying admirably to fly in a straight line, while failing miserably.

I sure hope we can fly while drunk. This may be a key feature of Ambulation that will get me hooked.

DO WANT.

I'm very much looking forward to this addition, it's one of the primary reasons that I'm back in the game, and 4 people followed me back. This is going to be a roleplayers dream.

One thing I'm still wondering about, and haven't yet found any more info on, is clothing, more specifically, what kind of options will we have, will we be restricted to only our races clothing? bloodline? Will it be tied to a skill (Diplomacy)? Or will we be able to wear whatever we want? This is an important thing for RPers, and I can see all three viewpoints. Personally, I'm for the skill based approach or the everybody can wear everything approach.

The other thing I've been wondering, is weapons. There will obviously be no combat, but I think it was E-ON #6 that mentioned the possibility of decorative weapons to go on the avatars as accessories. I like this idea, I'm just wondering if it'll actually happen or not.

Can't wait to see some videos from FanFest! I'm counting down the days.

I have a few friends who would strongly agree with you.

I doubt this would ever make it into the R1, but certainly would be cool to see in a future update.

So you're never gonna get out and see what it's like? I would bet my entire wallet that you'll try quite a number of times.

And: Ooooooh, interesting. Bugger that I can't see all this stuff because I can't afford a few grand to go to Iceland. Bit unfair, but I guess you've gotta give people a reason to come, eh?

It's time to have some fun, be admired, and spend money on women, gambling and booze.

How much are women being sold for in Iceland and are they any good ? Thanks in advance.

Every time they post about ambulation they just reinforce the idea that its ONLY pretending to drink online (i.e. the most pointless waste of time I can think of). Is it just me that goes "which of the following can I do in real life: drink beer, walk around, put on clothes, and fly a massive spaceship firing antimatter at another massive spaceship?" and then use that to choose what I want to do on the internet?

Is ambulation seriously aimed at the "under 18 with very strict parents and no friends so cannot conceivably drink" demographic? Really? Drinking in stations? There must be somthing more. In about 5 dev blogs, multiple screenshots, debates, dev posts and interviews, not a single actual /feature/ of ambulation has been mentioned, with the tenuous exception of some sort of in-station tactical map/ war room, the use of which sounds dubious. Its literally been billed, for a couple of years now, as just walking around. I'd be happy to take it all back if they come up with an actual game instead, but seeing as combat is already ruled out, and so are using any of the station's services, I doubt it.

I'm kind of tired of the assumption that just because you can't fight, there won't be gameplay. Some people do no fighting at all, some players manage corporations, this doesn't always require flying a ship or fighting. Some people would rather exist in a virtual world, than just play "internet spaceships", for us, EVE is becoming our virtual world, for the rest of you, you can still play "internet spaceships", why all the rage and hate? I just don't understand it at all, it seems so unfounded.

Honestly the thing I do the most in eve recently is sit in a station and train skills (thanks BoB, bastards) hang out in corp/alliance chat. It'll be sweet to hang with actual ppl.

You better still have the "build a custom NPC" functionality, I won't be very happy unless I can make Johnny Fiveaces himself.
