Hi Guys,

Eugene Spencer here.

We've got all kinds of high tech equipment in EVE. At first we had normal space ships, then cloaking space ships. And every time a new patch comes out, new higher-tech ships are released.

So, here's my suggestion: a time machine. Imagine being able to re-visit a battle and making that small change which could have turned the battle. Or imagine going forward in time and seeing what ships are in the enemy fleet.

And you could make "time police" a new profession too. Or even a "time janitor" who will clean up the time line if things get a bit crazy.

Wotcha think?

WTB Tech2 Time Machine.

Edit: please see my posts below for updates.

Yes as it's so easy to travel forward in time this should be implemented immediately!

Could we maybe have a T1 version first...I hate the training for t2 just to find out that my feable mind can't cope with the inevitable intricacies associated with temporal meddling...see...I'm already confused

I'd like pause and quicksave/load buttons implementing please. We have all this technology and can't implement some simple buttons?

I'd say Terminator.

Back to the Future and Timecop too exploitable.

Metagamers would be all over sending their 10 multiwindow controlled characters back to the past to team up with the past selfs aswell, effectively doubling their capabilities without any extra processing power needed on their computer from the present.

...Wait a minute, then who would be controlling the ship of past and future versions if real life stays in the same time period?

Can you get your past and future selves to join your corp to comminicate properly?

There would really be no limit to this really as there's so many instances of yourself in time you could contact.

Probably end up with a corp bigger than goonswarm with an armada something like that star trek tng episode where all the alternate realities collide. *head explodes*

Hi Guys,

Eugene Spencer here.

OK so I had a look on Sisi earlier and it seems CCP have taken my suggestion to heart! They were quick! Or perhaps there were able to develop it for years and make it appear in only a few hours, somehow. Don't ask me how.

Anyway, a quick look at the ships on Sisi reveals some interesting stuff indeed!

Currently there are four of them...

The First
This is built on ancient technology of unknown origin. It looks like some kind of jovian technology, but who knows. Apparently you need to get it up to around 39.34 m/s (on the internal dial, the number reads "88". I'm guessing this is some ancient measurement of distance over time).

The Second
Although this looks strange, it is infact very high tech. It's small, but you can fit a lot in it. I think this will be some kind of time travelling freighter because it has a HUGE capacity. It has been developed, by an ancient race, on a planet called Gallifrey.

The Third
Again, ancient technology. This was originally designed to be a Doomsday Weapon but after initial tests failed (it set the project back a good 18 months) it was discovered to have time travelling abilities.

The Fourth
This one was developed by a Minmatar scientist. The scientist who developed it had a beef with his old slave master, and used the time machine to destroy him. Unfortunately for the scientist, his old master was also his father. Which meant he never born, and the time machine was never developed.

Hi Eugene,

First of all I'd just like to say that I'm back, back from the future. I come from a version of eveo far, far in to the future. A version that would literally blow everyone's mind back in 2009. I just wanted to meet the man that thought this idea up, they have a statue of you in Jita pointing towards the future (Which was calculated to be roughly in that direction)

This is totally awesome.

Please CCP could you implement this? Just think, people could go back in time and withdraw their ISK from EBANK before it went into meltdown. BOB could be nice to their directors and they would still have an alliance. I could send myself an evemail to not bother browsing the forums on 12/Oct/2009.
