FPS in stations? no

now RTS-like squad leading in stations a bit like in ye ole days of Grownd Control? yesCool

Also, I expect this only to be implemented after planetary interaction.
QFT.
Counter-Strike in EVE is a definite reason for canceling.
Ground Control like gameplay on the other hand would be awesome. Maybe even BattleMech like contraptions the pod can dock into?

If fps combat would be available, but like ambulation, totally avoidable i dont see why anyone would want to quit over that?
I dont really see the nedd for something like this, but ...

Would you want demi-gods blasting up your property and patrons, running through your station like Highlander meets the Borg?

I wouldn't mind some sort of Ambulation combat eventually, but FPS combat would be fail. The people who will enjoy it aren't the same type of people who would enjoy the rest of the game, I think, and you'll just wind up annoying long-term subscribers who don't want to get shot in the face in-station

This is not supposed to be all out FPS you will need skills and its a separate character attached to your main that you can train. A separate environment apart from the REAL EVE (hell no, I do not want to give that up as well!) I can understand how you "non-twichers" might be easily scared or intimidated, But you will probably never have any use for it then eh? Also don't knock it till you try it...

As for the battlemech idea... oooo! Thats neat! /hard-on

I can see it working, just make it a third person shooter. Not fps.
but who knows, EVE with fps could be cool.

..I think invading a ship would be cool too, taking it over rather then always killing it.. -.-

Find a way to eject the pod pilot xD

Why would getting killed outside your pod end you.
I assume the pod is much more then a neural interface to download information to a clone. This portion of the interface could be small enough to go with you out of ship.


Wrong. Try reading the scientific articles. Cloning never caught on until capsules starting being used, since it wasn't really of much use, except for maybe moving from an old, sick body to a fresh one for very, very rich people.

Unless they retcon things later on, getting killed outside your pod means you're dead. Permanently.

Hmm what do I think? I think it's a crappy idea and I really don't know why ppl keep thinking ambulation = station combat. Do you really think the owners of the stations are going to let people run around their facilities with small arms creating havoc? Not going to happen...

I am playing Farcry 2 and Fallout 3 atm and still play games like COD4 and Bioshock and as much as I love FPS I never want to see that in EVE, that would just make the whole experience feel cheap tbh.

It would have to be in a holodeck type area. Something simple like UT99 style fps might be cool.

If I want an FPS shooter, I have myriads upon myriads of FPS shooters to play. I play EVE for space ships. I have no problems if it's a Sims sort of a social thing to buff up roleplaying or people who just want to strut around and be sexy outside their ship. Combat though? I'd really honestly want the devs to spend their time improving my spaceships instead.

1. You need to accept a duel
No thanks

And from a RP perspective, getting killed outside your pod would end the game for you.



are you one of these folks that post in a bold colour to get attention?


Are you one of those barbers who, if asked to make a clean bald cut, dyes the hair violet Laughing

This is bold.This is violet. This is Violet after too much cake.

On topic though, would be fun, could be done in an EVE-esque way, why not if it's optional. Then again, ambulation is optional so, consensual pvp when unshipping? Laughing

There's been some pretty awful ideas suggested on this forum over the last five years.

This one's right up there with the worst of them.

What a great idea, how could it not possibly fit in to the EVE universe.

I would train for lvl5 medic to unlock T2 revive, lvl5 hand held projectiles for akimbo uzis(no weapon grouping) and lvl5 teabagging for the extra humiliation and douchebaggery. Just equip you nikes for maximum speed, remove all other clothes as they just add mass, orbit the target outside his grapling range and shower him with bullets. Just remember to wear shades for extra coolness Cool on your nekkid dual uzi wielding killing spree.

If that'd ever happen, I'd want my shiphold to carry weapons from the Marathon-series and let me play the 'station-game' with my xbox controls.

Now, they could roll it into faction wars. Say you have to get some pilots to assault a station and try to capture it, then secure it. Once you win the inside of the station, makes it hard to take, harder than a pos maybe. Certain capture features would have to be met, etc. But only certain contested stations in FW areas.

If the station is in ruins (station guns, structure damage, etc.) the winning side would have to pay something like faction accumulated victory (accumulated through plex/km/isk damage/etc.) points for repair of certain station assets as deemed by FC/ground commander. If that faction does not have enough of these "victory points" then they can't repair what they have taken, thus making the station retaking for the opponent much easier.

Lets say you capture and hold that fully repaired station...now you could take advantage of in station services maybe on par with a pos, more slots, etc.

Just rambling

I would like to see fps eventually. Nice change of pace every now and again. Would make the game far more immersive.

Two comments:

1.
In the long run, I will be very very surprised if Eve style ruthless pvp does NOT get added to ambulation.

2.
I don't expect to see ambulation pvp before 2010, at the earliest.....

heres my idea:

- Pilot docks in station
- Ships send out a clone of the captain/commander(you) that has all your data in it
- Clone does it's business

If clone dies -> The captain/commander is woken again and misses what happened to the close sent out
else -> Clone gets back, merges neuro data with the original you and is put back to a stasis while you absorb the
experience the safety clone just had.

It's not perfect and it might not even be good... but it would offer a explanation most could probably swallow.

just my thoughts...




Also, FPS combat should have a meaning and if it has a meaning it's more or less mandatory.
If fps combat is mandatory it means that the system requirements take a leap to more demanding and ambulation ceases to be optional.

If its a one time fee of $20 and its better than TF2 then I say go for it. Otherwise... focus CCP, focus.

Heck, you can limit it to low sec/stations/certain scenarios. I just think it would be awesome to have some type of combat ambulation.

What really whets my appetite is the POD changing from ship to MechWarrior.. now that could be awesome!

Another thing is that if you are a pirate you normally live for PVP and if your sec status gets to a certain low point or you have a bounty on you there could be an additional consequence. Lots of different ways to go. The limiting of activity in hi-sec stations would open up a black market trade that some could really take advantage.

Why is it that people just fly off the handle when FPS is mentioned or automatically think CounterStrike or some such? Shocked This wouldn't effect most of EVE anyway just the PvP'rs or people that are bored...

Everyone stop being a wuss Very Happy They're are many ways to compliment a game it just has to be done in a manner that makes sense.
