Request Dev Info about the winter expansion coming soon

First let me start by saying thank you for listen to the players and so far the ideas that have come for the winter expansion look cool. Love the supper cap idea, time dilation, little worried about the customs office thing. Also Thank you for ship spinning.

But my real wonder is what is going to happen with low sec. In the blog, http://www.eveonline.com/devblog.asp?a=blog&bid=946, we got a glimpse of what was said to happen.

The players have not heard anything after that. I was wondering, is the Ice still being moved out of highsec? Are there still going to be individual buildings for people around planets? What is changing in the Sov mechanics? The players were asked for the feedback, but we have not heard anything from this point on.

In this blog you gave us an outline. http://www.eveonline.com/devblog.asp?a=blog&nbid=2428

Hybrid weapons balancing, Factional warfare, Assault ships, New T2 modules, Starbase logistics management, New EWAR-Drones, T2 Rigs manufacturing

Capital ship balancing, Ship spinning, New font, More captains’ quarter, Time dilation

The Bold we have heard about. What about the rest? And is there more to come?

Supercaps getting nerfed into the ground is the only thing that matters. Oh and the font.

That sucks. That is one I don't like doing, and wasn't looking forward to when I moved from Florida to Utah. That and cleaning off to feet of snow off my car.

Xmas is in 2 months. There is no miracle workers in CCP unless they haven't hired personal Jesus lately.

With good luck we may get fix to drones as a bonus, which would be awesome Xmas present.

Yep, there is definitely more to come. In fact we just published a little dev blog on one of the changes.

Don't worry how long did it take CCP to get normal kill mails working (never did) you think this has a chance of working in 10 years?

I wish they would stop with expansions I am so tired of bugs...

When you rage quit, can I have your stuff?

Some days you're the bug, and some days your the windscreen.                   And some days, you're just a man with a gun.

Do not worry you will only have to do that about 4 times this winter. Usually it only snows 6 " or so at a time here in Utah. Oh and watch out for the first snow of the season. Because even if it is only 2" everyone forgets how to drive.

/me once tried to power-slide around a corner on the first snow of the year and dented a wheel. :(

It's the window scraping that's the worst though... snow on the window = brush it off and go. Ice/frost on the window = half hour late for work.

anyway:
winter is coming... it still amazes me that the expansion planning didn't even happen until 2/3rd of the way through the expansion cycle. Seriously, wtf were people doing that whole time? /me is kinda exasperated about an expansion that's all database changes, no programmers required.

Wait half an hour late? You guys wouldn't survive a winter in the north. Come visit Sweden....Winter is Comming....

If they released all the news that we are wanting at one time, the threadstorm that would follow would be unreadable in any reasonable amount of time. Then we would complain that they don't listen to player feedback and just shove features at us.

Good thing I already lost mine. Although it was the longest strech I went without being podded.

Do not assume anything above this line was typed by me. Nerf the Truth, it's inconvenient.

Let me give you guys a little more information on what is coming. Starting next week we will be producing a series of 'In Development' video blogs which will look at what the various teams are planning for Winter 2011. I want to stress that these videos will not contain release dates as we are aiming to provide a lot of stuff and do not want to commit to a date we cannot keep. These will include:

Engine trails - Yes, that's right we are adding engine trails to EVE and we will show the work in progress so far.

New ships - Recently we featured a shot of the Tornado, the Deviant Art contest winner, on the EVE Facebook page. We were not happy with just giving out one ship so we will be showcasing all four new ships.

New nebulae - These new background sin the EVE universe are stunningly beautiful and will add to the immersion and feeling of being in deep space.

Team BFF - This team should be Best Features Fullstop and CCP Soundwave will give an overview of what his team has in store. Capital ship balancing, balancing hybrids, assault ships bonuses and much more will be added during winter.

Customer Relations - The Lead GM's will talk about changes to how petitions are handled, more options for Stuck petitions and how we aim to deal with your issues as fast as possible.

We are not just going to stop there. We will bring you more video blogs about what is in development for EVE Online.
