That ship above the station in the alpha shot, is that the Brutix?

No..don't think so.

Looks more like the Gallente titan to me. [:O] (Solteur?)

The Brutix did not exist.


i dont think the titans did either..

correct me if im wrong


Titans have always existed afaik, they just wern't developed as pilotable ships, whereas the Battlecruisers were created for Shiva.

Remember when you used to enter a system in the orbit of a planet and there was a BOOM to accompany it?

I remember when certain sounds weren't in-game yet, and instead played a placeholder. That placeholder just happened to be a cow complaining over something.

The bug you describe resurfaced in a later retail build, where exiting a station said pants-****ting "boom" would sound (how many experienced death and podding before screen updates back in the early retail? Anyone? Yeah. That sound bug was really uncomfortable). I heard from one dev that this bug got fixed quickly after an in-company e-mail was sent out threatening violence.

Old alpha/beta player that left before retail and was the one that mailed me these screenshots... a long time ago (the timestamp on the zip file says july 2002). The beta screenshot (Hiriitsu Kaneda) is mine though. And the pink interface. I still use that interface colour on my second account.

When i first saw the alpha pic i was like Shocked why isnt EVE as good looking as that hehe. I guess the real one is more accessable though Razz


Now remember, this was almost FIVE YEARS AGO. I distinctly remember downloading the alpha client in june/july 2001 (I was at work while it downloaded, and snuck out two hours early to find out that the server wasn't running). This visual quality is still in-game, along with style. Just go to "options" and tick off "interlace" and "widescreen" in Graphics. Or at least widescreen, I get the feeling that they removed Interlace.

For the longest time they were just battleships with a 8/8/8 slot configuration and alot of armour/shield. CCP wanted to do something special with them, so they didn't release titans until now in RMR, where they had new modules, weapons and the general framework from other capital ships set in place.

Reminding you who you were. Clicking it displayed some information about your character, I think. It was replaced by the left-hand Neocom in later builds.
