Dominion Info från fanfest 2009
CCP TorfiFrans starting now:
proud of apocrypha and the rollout. "LEGO is awesome." torfifrans still plays with lego (RE modular cruisers.) planning to add modular frigates/battleships at a later date ("soon, probably.") liked the risk in going into wormholes, liked the feeling of discovering space again; like past 0.0. really fucked up video showing what a real wormhole would look like - EVE wormholes look like the "real" wormholes.
there's about 4x more Tengus manufactured per month than Lokis; Proteus are second, Legion are third. Tengu is really coming on strong. Apocrypha was a major success: lots of new subscribers, more fur coats for TorfiFrans.
wants to change "stuff" but people fear change. EXODUS was supposed to be a mass move from Empire to nullsec, but it didn't seem to work so well; it became a mass exodus into high sec level fours instead.
RMR with titans, CCP thought there'd be only "three titans in game, ever." Superweapon that is so awesmoe it will never be used; shows goon/PL 27 titan video with caption "how do you spell overkill?" and the Goon/PL etc titan conga line "not only weapons but tools of joy"
with DOMINION, they're introducing: new sov capture system, new sov infracstructure, pirate arcs, new mail system. goal behind the new sov capture system is designed to be less blobby - cue starcraft motivational picture.
upgrade system. old system used time purely for upgrading, new system empowers player to make decisions. the new system requires you to live in the system and use it; means no more AFK empires.
by being active in the system, you'll get "pirate magnets" - increases pirate/rat chance "ore prospecting arrays" - more roids? "survey networks" - helps with finding plexes "entrapment" - upgrades plex quality "quantum flux generator" - increases chance of wormhole spawning "advanced logistics network" "cynosural suppresion" "cynosural navigation" "supercapital construction" "supercarrier docking facilities."
fighter bombers are supposed to balance capital ships. dreads have become anti capital ships but were introduced for shooting at POSes. no more Titan "superduperwinbutton" - targeting, no aoe. still scary and deadly but you pick who to instapop.
speedboat pirate epic arcs that use assault firgates/interceptors. level 3s with "phat l00t."
wants to create a "advanced warfare tutorial" - pvp in new player experience
mail system will allow you to sort by date/use labels to organise/works similar to G-Mail. I'm told by CCP Gecko that it's fully functional at the moment.
as i mentioned earlier, COSMOS is being renamed to "NEW EDEN" - torfi called it "spacebook" but quickly backtracked. allows a broad range of ingame activities from browser/mobile, robuts technology for game to web connectivity. haargoth joke.
flash is currently enabled o sisi on the IGB, but will be disabled for dominion due to security/stability issues. may be re-enabled later, same goes for other plugins
PLANETS in eve online will be the same planets seen in DUST 514. pic of planet; looks fucking AMAZING. clouds shadow on the water, the nightside has awesome city lights and the planets have awesome cloud systems. clouds move, the whole planets are procedurally generated; they're all but random by using sliders, and every planet will be "unique."
DOMINION release date is December 1st 2009.
can manage the lives of people on planets, apparently, but more on that tomorrow at 15:00.
ambulation/INCARNA has taken a new spin, showing a video. video of pods/changing from a demigod in space to a normal bag of meat - "it makes me sick" the video captions.
(batsman) Det enda som är större än njutningen av ett avklarat arbete, är att skjuta upp det till morgondagen.
