In 2006, (? I think), CCP realeased a demo of atmospheric flight.
Sometime later CCP merged with White Wolf.
Then the great idea of "ambulation" was announced.

Since then, not a word about atmospheric flight was ever mentioned again.

I'm guessing DUST 514 sort of put the kibosh on that, no need for atmospheric flight if you can have troops on the ground calling in orbital strikes or launching artillery strikes into space.

I'm not sure if it was Hilmar or someone else that said he wants to crucify the people who perpetrated what turned out to be a hoax. Seems to me like some of us fell for it.

I would agree, maybe it will lead to it some day down the road? I imagine having real time Orbital/Arti strikes will take some work to get right let alone ships entering orbit in EVE and showing up on DUST.

The Dust demo at Fanfest did include a bit of atmospheric flight... in fact Oveur commented on it.

If this is true, then can someone please provive a link to the "AF being fake" statement.

And if this statement was made in 2009, why did CCP wait so long to make such a statement ?

Atmospheric fighting will lead to new ships and skills. What will be interesting though of course is oceanic fighting and mission running.

In both scenarios you would receive mission's from agents either atmospheric or oceanic. You get into your new Atmo or Aqua based fighter design and engage in the mission.

Not only would you be able to compete in Oceanice based missions but you would also be able to engage in lava, liquid gas and other fluidic type of missions each requiring a set of skills and ship types in order to complete.

Just imagine chasing your bounty through space. The prey then docks up re-ships to an oceanic fighter craft that then heads for the closest watery planet. You pursue your bounty in your own oceanice fighter craft. As your ship descends into the depths and the warmth of the sun is replaced by the cold and harsh reality of oceanic fighting your realize that the large cavern ahead of you is no cavern at all....or is it. You continue to pursue your target through the cavern twisting and winding your way through the pipe. The everything goes dark as you enter the nether regions of oceanic fighting where light does not reach. You realize that in an instant that you feel like you are back in space...but the notion is quickly replaced as klaxon's wail and your pod begins to fill with water and the display status shows the massive oceanic POS that you have discovered but will soon not remember.

Thanks for the link.

OK, I admit, that I was obviously fooled.

But CCP, should have better comunicated with the community that AF was fake. (Yes, I understand this is an old topic).

Anyway, it would be nice to see AF implemented into Eve. Maybe one day.

Hold on.
One question has been bothering me.

When WAS the first time that CCP stated that AF was fake ?

Kerppe Krulli
Posted - 2011.07.09 17:06:00 - [16]
 

2 years after they decided they couldn't code the crap with any skill?

Unless confirmed fake near immediately then it was a true plan that people put together and forward. Only after they decided to dump it then did they say it was fake. CCP isn't known for their communication nor honesty to players about implementing improvements.

But hey SHINY monocle will appease you right?

Stfu and buy a monacle, play dolly dress up like the rest of us. Space is over. It is only to be used to fuel trips to new eden fashion houses. Read the 7/7 dev blog.

I badly want atmospheric flight, so much...ever since I saw that video from 2006. Was one of the reasons I started playing eve in the first place.

wouldnt be awesome if both dust and eve had atmospheric flight and the players of the 2 game could challenge each others? :D

maybe with different ships between the two games (i can already see the game balancing threads)

If Atmospheric Flight does one day appear, it'll have nothing to do with Dust.

My guess is that it'll be a standard PvE expansion, so......nothing to see here, move along....

Hoax my ass. I saw the video at Fanfest in 2004. Devs were on stage, showing it off, and talking about how awesome it would be. it doesn't take 5 years to come out and say "it was a hoax", it was a big deal at the time, and people were all talking about it, and all CCP would say was "Soon". The only reason I can think they say it was a hoax now is because they got sick of every time they announce something, those of us that were around then say "Yeah, right after planetary flight right?"

Atmospheric Flight died the second DUST was announced. It's only taken you until now to realise it, congratulations.
