Recently, Iceland, CCP CEO Hilmar came Veigar Petursson, CCP Shanghai Branch, 17173 to take this opportunity he had an exclusive interview. Petursson said in an interview when the future "of EVE will be updated annually to four or five piece of information, but the contents of each piece of information is relatively narrow, so that will help improve the efficiency of the Chinese localization. In addition, "EVE" has been set up a special team, the team will be responsible for the production figures RPG game content.


When asked about the "Dust, 514, Petursson said CCP this year also did not consider the game into China, they must first ensure that the game smoothly on the host platform and operational details, see the interview with the full text.

"EVE" will be updated each year to four to five expansion

17173: CCP branch in China has been established for several years, after so many years of operation, do you think Chinese players and European players in the pursuit of gaming experience What is the difference?

Petursson: We have repeatedly and "EVE" players to communicate them in the game most of the behavior patterns and European and American players is the same. From the market due to the high degree of similarity of many of China's domestic game, so many Chinese players than European and American players are more eager to experience the authentic exotic game. In general the Chinese and European and American players in the ultimate pursuit of the game is no difference.

17173: "EVE" version of the national costume and the world simultaneously, could you please talk about the future of CCP and Tiancheng century will be how to ensure that this synchronization can go on forever?

Petursson: "the EVE national costume version had indeed very lagging behind the EU version, this will launch several new initiatives and the cooperation of the century Tiancheng company, CCP improved version of the synchronization efficiency. Management and development structure of the CCP within the company was restructured so that it can more effectively deal with multiple versions of the world development and demand management.

In addition, the past, "EVE" a year to update two piece, but from now on, every year the game will be updated four to five piece of information , but the size of the piece of information will be narrow, which is equivalent to the past two piece of information for further decomposition. The benefit of this is the century heaven faster localization and other localization.

17173: To achieve this synchronization, what is the biggest problem you encountered?

Petursson: As a core product of the CCP, "EVE" was once just a simple game, but now it around the market has become very broad, such as "EVE" have a very mature player community, the API platform, a content site and so, if in the future to do the full version of synchronization of the various regions of the world, the synchronous update of the content of these neighboring markets is not a small challenge.

2013 game of center of gravity is not a spaceship but figures

17173: Due to the national costume "EVE" version was very slow, this version of the game look across the piece of information, it will not make some players miss the experience of some of the games?

Petursson: "EVE" all of the new piece of information actually contains two aspects, one new game content, the second is further refined and improved the original game content and functionality. The national dress of "EVE" on the line, players can not only play the previous versions of the content, although not so in a timely manner, but certainly more detailed than in the past.

17173: the majority of Chinese players might still prefer the physical character models to participate in interactive games, the new version of "EVE" has joined the character RPG content, I ask this RPG content in "EVE" in the future if there will be a greater proportion.

Petursson: in 2011 in "EVE" for the first time introduced the character RPG game content, 2012 we mainly will focus on the game's core gameplay, which is the spaceship related content development. CCP internal has established a focus on character RPG content development team, this team is completely stripped the original spacecraft sent, they simply do not care about the contents of the spacecraft, they focus on the development of character models and character RPG game content. "People send"

2013 "EVE" R & D focus will be spacecraft sent to be tilted.

17173: Can little disclose the CCP as "EVE" planning what kind of RPG gameplay and content.

Petursson: "EVE" project creative director has been transferred to the personal focus on the content of character RPG, I can reveal the future "of EVE players will be able to explore unknown space or regional first-person perspective. For example, a large space station, etc., In short this is the focus of next year.

TL;DR: the info that the OP is talking about is that CCP's planning on focusing on ship balance and fleshing out Incarna next year (or it might be balance next year and Incarna the year after that, the grammar is a bit shaky).

Not really any groundbreaking news.

Sounds like a good plan.

This year they will mess up (in a good way, I hope) ships and modules and other mechanics so much, that even the bitter vets will be screaming "Please, for the love of God, STOP! Enough!" At which point they can refocus back on Incarna features. I mean, let's face it, they didn't go through all this trouble with the avatar creator just for the pretty portraits on the forums.

You do look dashing I must say.

Otherwise; yeah, they're what redoing all the ship models one by one? The destruction of tiers. Implementation of ship lines. They're going to need a whole year of just balancing. It would be suicide to add more ships after that, not without some major grace.

That said, I'm not getting my hopes up...

近日,冰岛CCP公司CEO Hilmar Veigar Petursson来到CCP上海分公司,17173借此机会对他进行了专访。Petursson在专访时候表示,未来《EVE》将每年更新四到五个资料片,但是每个资料片的内容相对缩小,这样利于提高中国本地化的效率。另外 (EVE)已经成立了一个专门的小组,这个小组将专门负责制作游戏的人物RPG内容。

Recently, Iceland-based CCP's CEO Hilmar Veigar Petursson came to CCP's Shanghai branch; 17173 took the opportunity to give him an interview. During the interview, Petursson said in the future Eve will receive 4 to 5 updates every year, but the content of each update will be focused / smaller (direct translation is narrower), this will make Chinese localization more efficient. In addition, Eve has already established a specialized group, responsible for focusing on the (WiS) / RPG content.



在被问及(Dust 514)的时候,Petursson表示CCP今年还没有考虑将这款游戏引入中国,他们目前首先要保证这款游戏在主机平台的顺利上线和运营,详细情况请看专访全文。

When asked about Dust 514, Petursson said CCP has still not considered bringing this game to China; at the moment they are focusing on ensuring the smoothness of the engine(and functionality on the PS3)



17173:CCP在中国的分公司已经成立了几年了,经过这么几年的运作,您认为中国玩家和欧美玩家在游戏体验的追求上有什么不同点吗?

17173: CCP's Shanghai branch has already been operating for several years. What do you believe are the differences between Chinese and European+American players in terms of what kind of gameplay experience they are looking for (Sorry, its a ****** sentence to try to translate naturally AND stay close to the source phrasing)



Petursson:我们曾经多次和中国的《EVE》玩家沟通,他们在游戏里的大部分行为模式和欧美玩家是一样的。从市场方面来说,由于很多中国国产游戏的相似程度很高,因此很多中国玩家会比欧美玩家更渴望体验到一些原汁原味的外来游戏。总的来说中国和欧美玩家在游戏的极致追求上是没有什么区别的。

Petursson: On numerous occassions we've hooked up with Chinese Eve players, and their play behavior is for the most part the same as the European+American players. Speaking from the market side of things, many Chinese-made games are very similar (to each other), so the Chinese players are even more likely than European+American players to have a thirst for a fresh, foreign titles (--let it be known that Degren hates Chinese reporters that try to be inventive or artistic with a language that is so inflexible it still uses ******* cave drawings, I don't care if it's an interview "translation" there were 90000 other, simpler ways he could have written it. ******--) Really, though, there is pretty much no distinction between what Chinese and European+American players seek in gaming.



17173:《EVE》国服版本将和世界同步,能否请你谈一谈未来CCP和w将如何保证这种同步能一直持续下去?

17173: Eve's Chinese edition will, in the future, be synced up with the world release (They will in the future be getting updates at the same time as us, they're apparently on like Apocrypha or something) are you able to discuss CCP's and (the chinese company CCP works with to release the game over there(presumably does translation and probably censorship stuff)) how you intend to bring this about?



Petursson:《EVE》国服的版本曾经确实非常滞后于欧服版本,通过这次和世纪天成公司的合作,CCP公司将推出一些新的举措来改进版本同步效率。我们对CCP公司内部的管理和开发结构进行了重组,使其可以更有效的应对全球多个版本的开发和需求管理。
  另外要说的是,过去《EVE》一年会更新两个资料片,但是从现在开始每年游戏会更新四到五个资料片,但是这些资料片的大小会有所缩小,相当于把过去两个资料片的内容做进一步分解。这么做的好处在于,世纪天成可以更快的进行汉化和其他本地化工作。

Petursson: Eve's China edition is definitely lagging behind the European edition, and (to deal with this) we are working closely with (that same chinese company 纪天成公). CCP will announce some new steps we will be taking to improve the "synchonization efficiency" (I would love to know what he actually said in English to have it translated to that...) We have restructured CCP's internal management and development structure in order to more effectively respond (to the development and management needs) of the (various editions we have released across the world).
Also, one thing that must be mentioned, in past years we had two expansions / updates per year, but from now on every year we will have 4 to 5 expansions / updates, but these updates will be somewhat smaller in scope, the content will be a bit smaller than the past two expansions. In this way (that chinese company) can (translate and do whatever other work they do to make the release suitable for China) even faster.



17173:要达到这种同步,你们遇到的最大的难题是什么?

17173: What is the biggest problem you've encountered trying to sync up the releases?



Petursson:作为CCP的核心产品《EVE》曾经只是一款单纯的游戏,但是现在它周边相关的市场内容已经变的非常宽泛,比如《EVE》有很成熟的玩家社区,有API平台,有内容网站等等,如果将来要做到世界各地区完全版本同步,那么这些周边市场内容的同步更新将是不小的挑战。

Petursson: CCP's core product, Eve, was once just a simple product. Now it's (after market content / peripheral content) is very diverse / expansive. For example, Eve has a very mature player community, an API platform, "content websites", etc. If we can sync up every edition of the game across the world, this peripheral content "market" will also have a huge problem keeping their content updated.



It's getting late so I'm going to summarize:

17173:由于国服《EVE》版本一度非常滞后,此次游戏版本一下跨越数个资料片,这样会不会使一些玩家错过一些游戏内容的体验?
Interviewer asks if players miss out on content because they're so far behind and they apparently skipped some expansions, or released several at once, it isn't specified.

The "fu" they use after country has like sixty different meanings, most of them not colloquial. Google translate decided to pick "clothing" or "costume" ...it really just means the Chinese version of Eve.



It's getting late so I'm going to summarize:



Petursson:《EVE》的所有新资料片其实都包含了两个方面的内容,一是全新的游戏内容,二是对原有的游戏内容和功能进行进一步的细化和改进。所以国服《EVE》上线后,玩家不仅可以玩的以前版本的内容,虽然没那么及时,但是一定比过去更加细致。

Each xpac has two things: completely new content and rebalancing / fixing of old content. So the Chinese players might not get it in a timely manner, but (basically don't have to deal with the buggy or imbalanced ****)



17173:大部分中国玩家或许还是更喜欢实体人物模型参与的游戏互动,《EVE》新版本已经加入人物RPG内容,请问这种RPG内容未来在《EVE》里是否会有更大的比重。

Most Chinese players like playing with Avatar gameplay, Eve already has it, you gon' add more RPG Avatar stuff, son?



Petursson:2011年我们首次在《EVE》中推出了人物RPG游戏内容,2012年我们主要还是会专注于游戏核心玩法,也就是飞船相关内容的开发。但是CCP内部已经建立了一个专注于人物RPG内容建设的团队,这个团队是完全与原有的“飞船派”进行了剥离,他们完全不关心飞船的内容,他们专注于开发人物模型和人物RPG的游戏内容。所以在2013年《EVE》的研发重心将由“飞船派”向“人物派”有所倾斜。

2011 was the first time we added avatars, but in 2012 we're refocusing on the core gameplay of Eve (**** yes), which is flying in space content, but CCP has set up a team specifically to work on avatar RPG ****, they are completely seperate from the "space team" and are focused exclusively on avatar stuff and content. So 2013 will have both space and avatar stuff.



17173:能否稍微透露一下CCP为《EVE》规划了什么样的RPG玩法和内容。

Can you give us a little hint at what kind of content you're planning?



Petursson:《EVE》的项目创意总监已经将个人工作重心转移到人物RPG内容上了,我目前可以透露的是,未来在《EVE》中玩家将可以以第一人称视角探索一些未知的空间或者区域,比如说大型的宇宙空间站等等,总之这都是明年的工作重心了。

BIG AND UNKNOWN SPACE STATIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNSS or something like that. And first person view. (or he meant they can see first hand, whoever wrote this article blows at translating *into* Chinese). This is next years focus.



17173:《Dust 514》将和《EVE》进行联动,这款游戏会先在主机平台(PS3)上线,那么可以推算游戏一定会先在欧美上市,那么中国玩家什么时候可以体验这种联动游戏方式?

Dust is gonna be played on PS3 and can work with Eve, Eu / Am players will def get it first, when will Chinese players?



Petursson:首先CCP今年的工作重心就是两个,一个是保证《EVE》在中国大陆完美上线,第二个是保证《Dust 514》在主机平台上线并稳定运营。我们当然非常期待《Dust 514》这款游戏可以让中国玩家体验到,但是今年我们首先要保证的是这款游戏在主机平台运作。至于如何把《Dust 514》妥善的带到中国市场,今年我们还没有考虑。

CCP's work this year is two fold, 1st is ensuring the Chinese version of Eve is perfect, the second is making sure Dust is stable on the PS3. Of course we want our Chinese players to experience the game, but first we have to make sure it works. As far as releasing it to the Chinese market, we still haven't discussed it.



17173:《Dust 514》和《EVE》将进行产品内容的联动,在你看来这种联动能给公司和产品带来什么?

Dust and Eve's content will eventually be tied together, what do you think this will do for your company and for the products?



Petursson:我们从五年前就已经开始制作《Dust 514》这款产品并探索游戏联动机制,因此我们CCP是这一方面的先驱者。从产品的设计上来说,《EVE》是一个无限的内容发生器,游戏里发生的无数故事不是我们开发商创作的,是玩家们在互动之间不断产生的。而另一款不同类型游戏的加入,也就是我们所说的联动,可以使玩家从另外一个维度去体验游戏世界。从而使我所说的“内容发生器”效应变的更加有效和有趣。同时另外一个游戏平台玩家的加入,也使得玩家间的交流内容更加宽广和深入,使游戏社区更加繁荣。(采访/17173 北海)

We started creating / planning Dust 514 five years ago, it connects two games and two systems, so we at CCPs are a sort of pioneer. By design, Eve is pretty much an unlimited content generator. The unlimited stories and events in the game weren't made by us, but were created by the interactions between all the players. blah blah blah new system new players means new content and deeper interactions will let the community flourish etc.

As I get tired the translation gets more generalized and less detail-oriented. Sorry, you're only missing the writers ******, ****** "artistic flourish"

Edit: Or maybe that's just how Hilmar comes across in other languages

If so then his answers are only translated once.
