As a mission runner, I just wish there were more different missions.

I recall one player with a goal to visit every system in EVE. He accomplished this goal after about a year. When Apocrypha was released, he expanded the goal to all w-space systems, and said something like "See you in another year!"

EVE is what you make of it.

Snapshots of all the new planets in EVE, anyone?

we all know that eve space is god awfull when it comes to sites of interest, accuracy or even just looking good. why cant we scan down sites of interest. sites which are not profit or combat orientated and are mainly there for site seing. 1 ssuch site off the top of my head could be dence nebulas filling up a whole grid with pockets hidden inside and narrow channels for close up navigation. maybe even deadly if you stray into their gassy makup or use too large a ship. just anything really that takes exploring bk to its cautious high risk low reward fun just for the challange and none of this click and warp/ab to target or right click look at target rubbish.


it sounds to me that you are the type of person who stands out in the rain and complains that you are wet. eve as with all things is what you make it.
therefore cease complaining that your bored and either quit and give me your stuff or work with the sandbox.

*sigh*

So you reject any of the suggestions that you havent tried as being "more of the same"...well EVE is about flying spaceships...anything you do in EVE will be in a spaceship of some kind. So you're out of luck.

your missing the point. i have done prety much all off what you listed but what you suggest is upscale to something bigger. in my eyes and experience pvp is always pvp. mining is always mining, missions always the same. doesnt make a large difference to how good that content is just by upscaling. sure they are all good ideas but are all based on the same principles. i either kill or be killed or make money. what do you do when you have killed your share of pirates or mined your braines out etc. you suggest to me to do more of the same. im talking about the option to do something nothing to do with the above


I might be missing the point, but have you made a "I've Won Eve" decoration and assigned it to yourself?

You mean you want some scenery? I always thought Eve was like a model railway. Track and trains but just nailed to a flat wooden board. None of those green pained styofoam hills, miniature people, farms and houses

I agree Eve does almost completely revolve around making isk. Even if you go off and organise a 0.0 alliance and claim space, the only thing you can do with it is defend it and make isk off it

And the only items that you can make revolve around combat.Edit: Or making isk

Well, I am going against the grain here and give the OP some props to his whine. I agree, CCP needs to improve the exploration aspect of the game. More risk/reward based on your ability to scan out a site (random precentage to spawn a site when a player starts a scan). Make it hard to find but potentially valuable if you are successful and survive the encounters. I like his idea of dense nebulas that hold pockets of something deep inside them guarded by a variety of dangerous npc's.

Yes, it is something like WH's but without the WH mass issue. Just a little randomly generated, hard to find pocket in space that an explorer can spend a few hours venturing into Smile

So Necrosia, I agree with you! Besides CCP needs some good ideas for the next release, so they don't waste their time walking around stations....

Hi,

if you are bored, i have a lot of stuff to be hauled from Jita to Gurista 00 Space. Can you fly a blockade runner ? And yes ... its not about to fight something. And yes ... as requested from you, you wont get any isk for doing it and yes with some imagination its a big adventure

Hopefully Walking in Stations will remedy the bordom problem.

When I get bored in Eve, which I always do.. I tend to stop playing, but within 3/4 months I get the itch to play again.

So yea, if your bored the only thing you can do is do something else.

There are black monoliths and ancient ruins in WH space you know.

lived and explored wh space since it was introduced. seen it all and its all the same imo. different variations of the same stuff.

the problem is eve is supposed to be a sandbox to cater to anyones "space fantasy" but it isnt. everything revolves around 2 things and 2 things only. and that is making isk and pvp. this is all about getting something which has no baring whatsoever on isk making or pvp. this is about adding a none or very little proifit element to eve which it lacks which is tru pve exploration, not for money or power but for self achievement and fun. there is no fun whatsoever in "right clicking, warp to and look at target". its not just about doing it for the sake of doing it but for the challange. there is no challange in flying through low sec when all u risk looseing is a ship and pod.

what i want to see is sites so few and difficult that they offer the ultimate exploration chalange. for example - overview shows a wreckage inside a nebula. all u have is a tiny passage to navigate. you control all ur speed and direction yourself. you monitor overview to judge which direction in the maze of tunnels insde the nebula you need to take. 1 false move could mean the end of your ship and even pod. you finnaly find the target after an hr or 2 of carefull navigation and see something only a few skilled pilots in eve have ever seen. maybe even find something extremely rare thats lootable

currently eve is all point and click/warp to etc. that is not and never will be exploration. exploration shouldn't stop at finding a site. we should have the opertunity to take it thurther. i dont want to just see a ancient monument. i want to know what it is, were its from, who made it etc without all this right click all questions answered rubbish.

20 Probe for wormhole
30 Enter wormhole
40 Admire fancy new system
50 Goto 20


Brilliant =) One doesn't often see basic programming written in forms anymore.

More to the point, though... OP sounds like she needs to look into other games, and get that shift key fixed.

hahahaha...are you sugesting minigames? wait for Incarna

and as a sidenote , "twitch" isnt a skill

repeat with me , twitch isnt a skill , twitch isnt a skill , twitch isnt a skill......

fake edit : you`re sugesting , from what i can see , "scripted" events ... i can try to understand why some may like that , but from where i`m standing , pve is pve , nomatter how you dress it up.
Missions , rating , anomalies , plexes , whatever...all pve , adding random crap mazes wont do anything for it
Maybe this is the reason why i never managed to understand games like wow? I cant seem to find any difference between some scripted "tough" boss and just randomly bashing mobs diablo style

sites of eve lol. your joking right. what ones there are arent what i would call a challanging expedition. infact in every sence that is not exploration. that is sightseing. yes i have seen new eden and yulai and the few other boring and pointless sites, i even checked out a few of the monolyths floating about but see 1,seen them all and i wont be going again. they arent even "eye candy" and therfore not even worth a second trip to see.

i got bored.

then i spent 5 million isk on cspa charges, and a lot of time shamelessly self promoting.

and now there is hundreds of people out ganking stuff in my name.


EVE = make your own fun.
And you dont even need skillpoints or a lot of isk to do it.
