Just a random thought i figured i should post and get opinions on. What would everyone think/say about a relaunched EVE, better graphics, better everything basically, modern day technology, modern servers and even better effects, even more content like for instance a bigger playable space (not that it isnt already large) even MORE indepth gameplay/roleplay. Not sure if it would sky rocket or flop thats why im asking for peoples thoughts and opinions.

All responses are welcome Lol

'Better' is very subjective. What better graphics? What better technologies?

What's lacking specifically in the current graphics and technologies.

What servers are going to be more modern than the current TQ3?

I genuinely think that Eve doesn't have enough sandbox elements to it. So, if there were ever an Eve 2.0 I would want more sandbox and far less hand holding in the game. There would be no empire space, no already placed stargates, and you would perhaps have even more control over how you want to build your own ship. The only thing that strikes me as a true sandbox in this game are the economies, alliances/coalitions, and their military doctrines.

I don't know about better, but it would sure be interesting to see EVE 2 simply because you wouldn't have an entrenched minority of bitter vets calling the shots.

While better graphics and performance would be nice, I don't think those features are worth losing everything else about the current EVE.

You can guarantee that creation of a new EVE would be an excuse to make WoW in space, losing any soul this game once had.

I'd probably take Eve Two as a good enough reason to give up on Eve One and MMO's in general.

It would split their userbase and kill both new and old EVE, through lack of required numbers to fill out either game, the old userbase would know that EVE 1 was not going to be further developed, and many would not like to start again and thus they wouldn't be found on either server fairly quickly.

In any case, its faster to improve EVE than rewrite everything, and the current developers have a stronger maintainability focus than the original team.

I'd also love to play an EVE "season", where a fresh empty server is up that everyone is starting from scratch on ala a diablo 3 season, but that would also split the user base. Also injectors would now serve to short circuit access to capitals, which would prevent a fresh server from having a "golden age" of purely precapital combat.

We're on EVE 5 atm, continuously improving and updating.

Don't ask for things you don't understand, you might just actually get what you asked for.

Its like the Ship of Theseus, how much of the original game and coding needs to be changed for it to count as a new game?

the graphics have been overhauled several times now, most of the ships have been updated, mechanics reworked. and much of the legacy code nuked.
we pretty much are in eve 2.0 at this point, or at least shortly will be.

Eve 2 would be like when Square Enix made Final Fantasy 14. There was still development and expansions on the horizon for Final Fantasy 11. There's still debates today over which game is better but unfortunately all that they did was set up their own competition internally .. (at least it's the same wallet)

The posters saying it would create a split house, yes that is exactly what happened to another franchise basically.

Hilmar have said in the interview that it doesnt make sense to do EVE 2, like it doesnt make sense to do facebook 2.

Things EvE 2.0 should have:

  • Overpriced Cash shops like Black Desert Online and all the other ****** Korean MMO's.
  • Safe Spaces for all the special snowflakes.
  • Day one DLC and Season Passes like every EA/Ubishaft game has. Play the new Caldari faction for just 49.99$.
  • Solo and Group Play like Elite: Not so dangerous.
  • Tired Faces like Mass Effect: Arsedromeda
  • Let me take you by the hand and guide you to Point A to kill x amount of mobs, like...yeah...you know.
  • 365 different genders, so that no Tumblr freak is gettin' triggered by looking at a male/female.
  • A ****** PC port from PS 4 or XBone.
  • A Tumblr blog were they can whine about anything and everything.
  • Seal of approval by Anita Sarkeesian.
  • Instant gratification for the "usual suspects".
  • Gold Ammo like in World of Tanks, for those with the aim of a Imperial Stormtrooper. 100 rounds just 5.99$.
  • No PvP zones, because PvP would make me suffer "extreme trauma and tears while mining in High Sec".

Did I miss something? /cynism off

People once asked for KotoR 3 and at the end they got SW: TOR.
Be cautious what you're asking for.

EVE could use multi-threaded code, frankly. Right now TQ is like a Ferrari running on whiskey instead of gas. Yes, probably it will perform better than a VW Golf also running on whiskey, but there's something seriously lacking in the fuel department...

Only problem is that multi-threaded EVE would be effectively EVE 2 since everything should be coded again...

I think we should get that in EVE 1. I have pink/white skin on my ship already, so why not?

"EVE 2 confirmed?" I joke, predictably. It raises a smile.

"People always asked us, in, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 'When is Eve 2 coming out?' And then they kind of just stopped asking. I think people now get it. Eve is like Facebook. It doesn't make sense to make Facebook 2. Eve is Eve. And as long as we do a good job of modernising it, as the team has been doing, from business model to graphics to gameplay to economies, then Eve kind of constantly just succeeds itself. So that's definitely the plan.

EvE is facebook, but a far superior game and with a lot less fake people.

I only post here if EvE is offline. Which means my posts are never well timed.

Eve is a player driven sandbox. Politics, economics, cooperation and conflict - none of it scripted by the developers. The furniture in the sandbox is a very small part of the game.

Eve is written in stackless python which is fully multi-threaded. The game was originally developed to run on single core Pentium 4 servers and legacy debt remains but it is being paid down. It would be nice if we could get more frequent devblogs discussing work on the core engine that powers the game.

Given that the player created institutions and connections between them are the game it makes a lot more sense to maintain and enhance the existing sandbox.
