Are you allowed to say how many games CCP are currently working on, and of those, how many have directly given back to Eve?


dust 514 and world of darkness from what has been said over the last few years

There was mention of another game during the alliance tournament, that was not allowed to be named in public yet.

Hey uh- mind asking about that per-polygon cloak effect we got with trinity too? That was hawwwwt

I will add it to the list and try to find out.

This old effect sucks big time.. and it's also not 'per polygon'.. it's just a moving gradient over the whole texture-channel.
The actual cloaking is better, but if you could really make it 'per polygon'.. so that the sub-cloak-emitters come on 'one by one' and hide parts of the ship until the whole thing vanishes.. then we might be talking.

Also, before CTG or graphics team is wasting time on tampering with the cloak, there are other effects, like:
- engine trails
- ****ty sensor booster
- ****ty cyno effect,
which are in more need of some 'polish' Wink

Anyways.. very nice blog and trend there CCP.

And again.. we didn't get an answer from the 'Boss' so far about the neglect of:
- corp roles
- POS
- FW
- bounty system
- low sec
- sov
- PI
- intel gathering (local, d-scan, probes..)
- loot melting screwing miners
- ..
for the next 17 months. There are some people waiting for a statement about this kind of topic already. Much appreciated.

CCP Fallout. I've been watching this video and I thought of 1 thing after that. I saw that character in the video and I can't recognize it from anywhere. Perhaps its normal since it could be imagined from someone.

So I was thinking that if you guys create more avatars like this one here in the vid, does this mean you will have to recreate the avatars on the character selection screen ? Will we have more control or features with it. For example, I could create a character in Incarna and "take" a picture and use that for my character selection screen. I assume I will have to respect some racial figures.

Our games in development are on our website. No sikrit stuff after we announced Dust 514.

One other thing that irks me to no end.

Anti-Aliasing.

Are there any plans regarding this? This to me, would be the most welcome improvement, other than glorious bouncing breasts of course.

Look at the models teeth, they just look ******ed. It really ruins it for me.


Anti-Aliasing is actually being looked at. No promises, sorry but we do want it.

The devs have stated over and over again that we will have to remake all avatars with Incarna as the new rendering system isn't compatible with the current one.

It is possible that we will get to do this new portrait picture already in the winter expansion (as it is supposed to contain preparation work for incarna).

Oveur mentioned the games we have in development in a reply just above. All of those have contributed to EVE in some way and EVE has contributed to them as well. That's what Carbon is there for.

CCP, First off, thank you again for the wonderful glimpse into your work.

Secondly, CCP, sirs, madams, I am shocked and appalled at this egregious misallocation of what seem to be extremely valuable resources. I don't want to wake up in an eve where leaving my pod only shows me a bland, dreary interior with a bunch of womens hair fluttering around.

Where is the cleavage???? I want boobies, large beautiful shapely breasts. LOTS OF THEM! I do not believe that you time has been spent wisely, I henceforth call for immediate action in reallocating all your manpower in the following manner,

1. Bouncing Boobies.
2. Everything else.

I can see that there is still hope for the CTG team, even this late in the game, you have a lot of ground to make up though. Please for the sake of all of EVE, RIGHT THIS WRONG! It will require many sleepless nights of research, development, testing, more research, more testing. But I know, that if the CTG team can pull together and get this right, you will have a MUCH happier player base.

Balls in your court CTG team. GET THIS ( . Y . ) RIGHT!


Are you saying you want another DOA4 Extreme beach volleyball?
come to think of it. it would be funny to create a video knock off of DOA4EBV's intro using eve's avatars. :P

I remember long ago that you guys hired a fashion designer to assist in creating the apparel for the new avatars. Are the designs present here in the Carbon demo a sample product of that effort from this individual's contributions?

I retract my earlier statement about PhysX running on x87. After a bit more research it seems this will be changed to SSE in a later SDK update.

Ok, thanks for the link. Did read the thread again.. pretty vague.

I also couldn't find the/a 'prioritized list' on the Evelopedia.
Originally by: CCP Oveur
.. We deliver expansions every 6 months. The winter expansion is being planned on Monday and includes improvements, fixes, content and new features, including quite a few of the stuff listed on the Evelopedia prioritized list. We also spend 20% of the time fixing stuff, as one does. ..


Is there anywhere a place where you list what 'improvements', 'fixes', 'content' and 'new features' mean in detail?
Thanks!

I believe Nathan is referring to the CSM Prioritization that was crowdsourced and filtered earlier in the month.

You may also find the recent UI: Big Wins, Fan Favorites and Low Hanging Fruit proposal interesting reading.

Both of these are examples of the CSM working to give CCP feedback on where they will get the best bang for those development resources they allocate to improving existing game features.

We do have a couple of fashionistas working at CCP. I would have to check back with them to find out exactly who had input to the dresses. I do know that the tech artists in Core had a lot to do with them as well.

If the new character system is going to allow us to create toons that look as realistic (and stunningly gorgeous!) as the ones in that video I can indeed imagine why people would prefer to stay docked once incarnea hits.

I for one will be exploring the possibilities of opening a brothel *puts on his pimp hat*

Please, when you implement the new avatars, make it possible to copy the current face onto the new one (I hope you save the parameters used at character creation, RIGHT?).

With my artist lolskills I always create the ugliest 3D faces possible.

Plus, I am sure that after years and years, many people identify themselves as they look now, and would like a revamp not to be able to look like themselves any more.

ok so the core technology is being worked on ( this could potentially be outsourced via license to other gaming companies) so i guess ccp is looking at profits first and pushing the new games and back tracking the importance of eve. But thanks for the update the CARBON technology looks interesting for sims 4 i mean incarna keep it coming

Wrong.

If we are lucky we might be able to see the old portrait at the same time as we make the new one as it was a suggestion during Fanfest.

Dust 514 gave us prettier planets if I recall right the tech for thier looks stemmed from those development teams to create a more consistent universe.

World of Darkness inadvertedly is giving us bodies however its a poorer comparison but lets just say that WoD and Incarna are going to be twins in a sense, with different additudes.

And bleh Oh how I cannot wait to start spending my government money for education at a commerical art school, if there is any left by the time I get out.

Bah, who needs physically correct clothes, since we are all looking forward to some serious exotic dancing in Incarna, where clothing should not be an issue ;)

Ah, okok, it does look pretty amazing. If we just get half as good Animations in Incarna / WoD, sign me up HARD :D

I'm not sure if you mean other companies could create Carbon for us or that we would sell Carbon to companies outside CCP.

If you meant the former, then I honestly don't think it would be feasable and we certainly are not going to do this.

If you meant the latter, we are not selling this technology to anyone. It is purely for internal use at CCP.

Yes we read the forums and not just EVE-O. However, my forum whoring skills are not what they were before I joined CCP as I now spend my work days actualy working and not hitting f5. Anyway, I'll pass on the request to Fallout.
