You'd think they'd make that tiny lone room actually playable too, rather than being worse performance than crysis on max settings

Could be it was all BS. With work on DUST and WoD taking priority, nothing was done for Incarna so could be they just started working on Incarna recently.

I reallly don't get it either.

Ok ill stop refering to super mario brothers and doom wolfenstein which I found far more expressive and entertaining in terms of avatars that showed character and were entertaining.

If you want something "realistic", how about Call of Duty ? Those avatars move far more quickly... without lag etc, have decent interaces, have high definition enviorments etc.. or Battlefield bad company.

I dont' particularly love the pc version...but i know some people do...but how is the little unresponsive guy locked in a room, moving slowly anywhere close to those titles or even earlier versions of those modern titles?

This patch was only the first stage of Incarna.
The patch notes and devbloggs released in advance did say we only got 1 room and nada to do the first time round.
They are releasing Incarna in multiple patches, which makes sense, it's easier to debug this than a full on expansion.

Indeed. And what's worse, CQ at the moment is so utterly useless and pointless, Incarna is going to require a whole lot more development resources so CCP can get people to use it and buy the virtual Sims-in-Space crap, helping finance their other games under development.

And all at the expense of devoting resources to further developing the SPACESHIPS game we are supposedly paying our subscription money for. And it needs them badly: half-finished rushed-out expansions piling up, low-sec, ship balancing, T3 frigates, etc, etc, etc...

They would have been much better off having bought Unreal Engine 3 or even 1 for that matter and come up with something a lot better and a lot quicker! The new home designed UI is a FAIL CCP - Admit it!

The graphic design team however did an excellent job! Pity that it fell flat on its face! Would have been nice to walk out of Captains Quarters and down to a Market area where players could interact and buy and sell...

Reading through more leaked stuff, instead of having kids running around the offices (where WORK should be done) they could be answering petitions, fixing bugs properly and actually EARNING the salary that WE PAY FOR !!!

Incarna is a complete renovation, it's a renovation of code, it's the building platform from new technology for CCP to build and work on and what CCP did in this expansion pack was focus on the technical foundation to make EVE Online more efficient, future proof, scalable and capable of supporting new yet unmade technologies and thus advanced content that's coming. Incarna is a massive expansion pack and it's all under the hood. Technically by any account doing this where you cannot take something offline, rewrite the code from scratch using new technology/a different programming language is exceedingly difficult and often more expensive than reworking it from the beginning. The major technical challenge involved requires a lot of resources and then on top of it CCP has had Dust 514 in the works and once more it's going to be connected to the EVE Online Universe.

Eve Online came out in 2003 and some of that 2003 technology is still in EVE I have no idea how much but I'd say it's a lot, Incarna is the major first step to remove obsolete technology and implement new technology. There's no handbook on how to do this, CCP is likely getting by on intellect and cofee.(probably lots of cofee) I don't think CCP would have even tried an attempt at this if not for the fans, the fans which they have just steam rolled imo.

It's beyond comprehension why they launched the NEX Store when there's no interaction between players.

You dipwads are insufferable, self-entitled, ungrateful twits.

As if you spend this much time on the forums complaining, and always about absolutely nothing, or about things you have zero knowledge of.

Really, it's become a sick joke the way you people never stop. What's wrong? Mommy and daddy didn't appreciate your drawings as a child, did they put your siblings pictures on the fridge instead of yours? D'aawwww... Embarassed

Technically this is the 4th version of incarna. The other 3 got canned for unknown reasons but video previews of them are still on the web.

Also, they were all bigger and better then the current version amusingly enough.
