Seriously...I'm either having a senior moment, or it's just taking too long for it to come out but I forgot what it's a big deal.

Refresher please.

EDIT: Nevermind...found a linky:

Incarna will be a time of great whine. people will demand for more stuff to do in their brand new bodies.

then ccp will add personal combat, and there will be great whine again, as people will not like losing their pretty bodies.

in other words, business as usual.

Well...

IMO Incarna is just a myth intended to keep us following EVE, like the Rapture for Christians or something like that.

Incarna / Ambulation has been "Just an expansion or two away" for the entirety of my EVE career, and I somehow doubt that it will come out for a few years more.

While I like the idea, if only it would just come out.

Maybe Incarna is the December 21rst, 2012 expansion Razz

Hammerhead said in that interview that Incarna wont be the next expansion, but that something Incarna related will definatly be part of it.

So yea, seems like PI and DUST has altered their path for ambulation.

My honest question is would I have preferd Dust + PI or an earlyer Ambulation release.. I have to say that no doubt in my mind exists, Ambulation would do more for CCP than this Dust stunt

Incarna is the thing which will make sure there will be no improvement to core Eve functionality for years to come.

Stuff like space combat, the map, inventory handling, corp management, science and industry, the contract system ad infinitum. You know, all the stuff that's been beta quality and barely usable ever since it was released, was always slated to be 'just a foundation upon which we intend to build cool new functionality' but which has languished unmaintained for the better part of a decade.

I think thats a bit extreme! There has been so many improvements since the 'need for speed' initiative that 'unmaintained' is the last word I'd use.

And we can't wait to hide in the shadows around the corner of a cargo container and stab you in the back as you walk past in a drunken stupor.

Because that's how we roll.

Edit: And let's face it, if they don't have getting "drunk" in Incarna, everyone will whine that a certain other game already has that so we should too.

Imagine what you could do in the stations.

Caldari - Go to financial meetings with other insecure bipolar business men
Amarr - Goto church
Gallente - Go to sex and strip clubs
Minmatar - Casino / Frentix abuse!!!

I'm sure it'll be released this year, alongside walking in stations.

I'd say to never leave your ship, even when docked. But spacebook is proving that CCP doesn't respect anyone's desire to opt out. After all, who will use your crappy features if you don't force them into it? Looks like with CCP's attitude docking in any trade hub will go dock -> suicide bombed in the docking bay -> respawn in med bay -> suicide bombed until you revert to a mentally disabled child -> lose all your skill points -> quit EVE.

Boarding parties don't work in space because of doors.

You could technically blast a gaping hole in the hull of the target ship and get in that way, but what would be the point when a killmail is just one volley away?

Edit: Remember that the lives of the ship's crew is meaningless to us as capsuleer pilots, so we technically have no motivation to let you board. ;)

Like what? I'm talking about proper improvements to core mechanics, not stuff like rebalancing existing mechanics like the speed changes.

Combat: Ship damage is still just a progress bar with the ship exploding at zero with no damage effects whatsoever. Even dumb units in RTS games have damage effects whereby they operate less effectively as they take damage.

UI: It would be nice if the Overview actually worked.

UI: The map hasn't worked since they changed it years ago. Open it, select 'show corp mates in space', watch as nothing happens. System info popup station submenus work only every now and again. In many systems/locations you can't even zoom in close enough to distinguish individual items. Hover the mouse over a load of elements close together and it lists them in a column witch disappears off the top of the screen, so then you have to try and work out how best to rotate the map to stand a chance of it actually displaying the listed items on screen so you can click it.

UI: Windowing system. Switch from fullscreen to windowed mode and watch as your windows arrange themselves crazily across the screen, all it has to do is remember where the windows go for two window sizes, it isn't rocket science.

Corp Management: All corp financial data is erased from the DB after 7 days. If you export the data via the API you only get bits of it. All data about what contracts were for is irretrievably lost. For a game that revolves around corp operations that's utterly ridiculous.

Corp Management: Still no way to securely organise equipment in hangars. Locked containers don't seem to do anything at all even if you bother to wait the 10 minutes or more it takes to actually lock or unlock the items in one. You can't put fitted ships or other containers in containers, and to perform most operations you have to empty the contents of the container into your personal hangar. Container operations at POSes are even more nonsensical.

Corp Management: You can't even select which wallet you use to conduct simple tasks like insure ships for corp or pay bills.

Corp Management: POS management ignores title system completely leaving you only 2 roles to configure all access to however many POS assets your corp might have, which effectively means that you have no way to implement proper corp security.

I'm not saying no work has been done, just that all the important stuff that has needed fixing has languished unaddressed while CCP continue to make the situation worse by adding more half arsed stuff that is either horrid, unfinished, or just doesn't work properly at all (or in some cases a combination of all three).
