Souping up? Jury Rig? Nothing wrong with those.

Well, unless you spell colour and armour without the U. Wink

We can't BARE with you any more, CCP fixed that in the character editor.

Oh, and irregardless isn't a word; or rather, it would mean the exact opposite of what people intend to say, the double negative contained therein would mean "with regard".

Epic description is epic.

Anyways...fleshing them out further is something we definitely want to do. Finding the time and opportunity is the hard part. We should, I think, make some headway here as a small part of the new storyline project being led by the fearless CCP Abraxas. Beyond that, some of us content devs are looking at other solutions we can sneak in, like updating old or outdated ship descriptions, fleshing out things like that drone description above, etc. It'll grow over time, slowly but surely.

In the meantime...All hail the device!

some good material there. where can I see 'The Device'?
Not quite descriptions, but if someone can quote the 'Smack Talk' and 'stevedores tied up with paperwork' lines those are equally good in a bad bad way.

Says the Gila description:
Quote:
Taking what he had learned from his days in the Caldari Navy, Korako ‘The Rabbit' Kosakami, Gurista leader, decided that he would rub salt in the State's wounds by souping up their designs and making strikes against his former masters in ships whose layout was obviously stolen from them. To this end the Gila, bastard twin of the Moa, has served him well.
Quote:
souping up

Quote:
General understanding of the inner workings of starship components. Allows makeshift modifications to ship subsystems through the use of rigs. Required learning for further study in the field of rigging.

Quote:
jury rigging

"souping up" is a butchering of the idiom, which stems from supercharging a vehicle -> "supercharging up" -> "super-ed up" -> "supped up", which is the correct form.

looking for more 'all your base are belong to us' type descriptions, and odd stuff in general.


What is this...I don't even...oh god I'm going back to bed. Stupid forums.

Something odd about a past patch, it changed a certain ship's description from "a goodly drone bay" to "a godly drone bay"...

The original "goodly drone bay" was perfectly correct, albeit old-fashioned or deprecated through disuse of that expression in modern language, and to me made far more sense than the new version anyway.

Another pointless and nit-picky observation, but then so was the change that was made :D

You do know who the Normans were, don't you? Or for that matter, where they came from?

Notice the Engish words of french origin
