Was having a non-sober chat with a corp-mate this evening, and am told that some of these pics would be of interest to folks interested in the history of Eve. A few are pictures of Eve from a CCP paperback brochure prior to the Alpha. Some are Alpha 6 to Beta 5 pics. Some are early game pics. Some are just random. Either way, I hope you folks enjoy. I hadn't looked through this crap in a long time and was doing some real laughing while scrolling through.

Enjoy

Edit to include some old videos I just uploaded. I did some quick checking to see if these were already up on YouTube and couldn't find them, but I could be wrong.


The second Eve Online trailer, from late 2000

An e3 glimpse into Eve from 2002.

An IGN office tour of CCP in early 2003.

The old "I promise I'll discover your trade and passenger routes..." trailer from early 2003

Apparently some things can change to better.

Fantastic compilation! That original typhoon model is still as awesome as I remember it.

I hope this garners response from someone who was working with CCP during this time period. I would actually like see what they have to say about the evolution of the game.

Very cool.

Thank you. I don't recall having a typhoon in there but I could be wrong. If you're referring to the shot in "general old", that was a Min titan, at the time.

The text in the picture I think labeled it as " liberty" and looked very similar to the original typhoon model.

I will look again and edit accordingly.

Yep, in the teaser pics. Battleship "liberty" it's definitely not a tempest, and looks very similar to the typhoon model that helped make Eve a lasting impression for me.

Nope, you're right, that is an old Phoon. CCP used to put pictures of the game up every once in a while, and caption them with some story.

Looks almost like a different game. Checking those requirements back in 2001, I barely cover them with my old PC. The game must have been top notch back in the days. And those solar systems - never heard of them, like I said, totally different game. Big smile

I love the font they used to label the systems, they should bring it back.

Heh i still remember the old station service icons if i remember correctly they stayed the same for quite a while since launch of the game. Also mission agents used to have quality thank god they did away with that.

Thanks!
Fascinating to see how much survived the whole way until now, what was modified and what was dropped.
I look at some of my 09 screenies and wonder how i played, why i thought it was so pretty.
The answer is, of course, that changes since have spoiled me rotten.

The old style portraits are so much better to look at :)

Thanks for putting the images up for us to see.

The conversation with the pilot Tankuk had me in bits, did he ever rententer Venal to fight Evolution again and did you keep to your word and not kill him a system further along?
