  • Black holes in EVE Technology and Research Center

    What game play options does this bring?
    And yes I really want to know.

    The generally accepted theory is that anything that entered a worm hole would be ripped into individual atoms by the intense gravitational field, wondering how do you propose CCP implement this in game?
    Does your character get eliminated from your account and you loose everything including ISK that they had scattered about EvE. OR is that a little too real for your taste, so they would simply wake up in a clone vat somewhere?





    Black hole =/= wormhole

    What game play options does it bring? I don't know, did you read the post or did you look at the topic title and make a post with a bunch of things I already talked about? lol

  • Black holes in EVE Technology and Research Center

    I changed my mind, the new suggestion I'm bringing to CCP is to fix this ridiculous community of sociopathic trolls. Literally, if you have nothing of value to add you should go back to sitting in your station ship spinning.

    oh i see i must have just been imagining the effects then


    It is still a backdrop and it is not what I was suggesting. There are many forums for you to troll, you can choose another thread

    "herp derp here's a backdrop with some adverse effects that is completely boring because i'm boring and new features make me mad"

    could.... could you not even bother to google "black hole eve"?


    eve does have black holes.... they look like giant pulsing infected anuses


    That is hardly what I'm suggesting, that's not even a feature lol I have seen these and they are nothing more than a backdrop

  • Black holes in EVE Technology and Research Center

    This game is pretty old, and I'm sure almost every feature being discussed on this forum right now has previously been discussed. So, with this idea, I'm sure it's been brought up before, but I want to talk about it again anyway. I remember my first time in EVE, I was flying a Rifter through lowsec in a system that was real red. I thought I saw something in the distant reaches of space that looked like a black hole, but I couldn't get there.

    It got me thinking then, and I still wonder now, why doesn't EVE have black holes? No Man's Sky has black holes, but they did them wrong. Black holes are not wormholes (although, sometimes, in fiction, people bend the rules of space and make them wormholes, whatever). Elite Dangerous has black holes but last I checked they just kind of distort the environment until you clip through them and fly past (also a failure of accuracy). Star Citizen, as far as I can tell, doesn't even have a single semblance of any such cosmic entity.

    So, CCP, why not be the first mega huge space game to actually have properly functioning black holes? Let noobs drift into one and watch some crazy effects and distortion as their ship is torn to shreds. Teach them a lesson. Make it something that is avoidable, but dangerous at the same time.

    We are in space, after-all, and space has black holes and they usually aren't even completely stationary.

    Make it something centered around the lore, make it harnessable by some technology that has to do with citadels or player-built stargates. Reward people for successfully discovering a new black hole and not getting destroyed by it. Have a player competition to discover them all and document their ongoing locations.

    Anything.

    Just put them in the game.

  • Courier contracts are a joke in EVE Communication Center

    Steve Ronuken wrote:
    Meryl SinGarda, what would you like to see happen with courier contracts then?

    They're entirely player generated.

    I don't see forcing a minimum price for them as a viable option (After all, maybe you're doing a favour for a friend)


    That was actually my suggestion but I see how that could minimize the nature of the sandbox. The fact that players have organized something to get around this issue kind of fixes the problem (I hadn't even previously known there was a channel of haulers)

  • Courier contracts are a joke in EVE Communication Center

    Tipa Riot wrote:
    As mentioned above, join the Haulers Channel, if affordable only take couriers from there. Scams are not allowed there and people announcing tiny rewards or otherwise "funny" contracts are quickly talked out of it by the community. Though the good deals come with collaterals in the 2-5B range and require a DST at lvl4 minimum. On the lower end there is too much competition of newbies, crashing the prices.


    I did join that channel ;p and it's pretty sweet.

    I was thinking someone in CSM could put forward an idea to enforce a minimum reward that scales correctly with collateral, but with this channel of non-scam jobs, it's not such a huge deal.

    There's a sucker born every minute and many of them become haulers in EVE.

    Unfortunately, all of those contracts will end up being picked up by someone and moved, so the system perpetuates.

    If you are looking for more reasonable pay, join the Hauler's Channel.

    There are some general guidelines that most people follow in there and always a steady flow of courier work.


    Thanks, I'll jump in and have a look

  • Courier contracts are a joke in EVE Communication Center

    No, seriously, I remember when there used to be many of them, and maybe it's just the size of my cargohold but do people know that you sort of have to at least kind of compensate people for hauling your crap? Look at this: https://i.gyazo.com/fbb2f533af9d64635278a3df77538043.png

    Sure, buddy, I will totally risk 200 million isk for a penny. Yeah. Good luck with that.

    I think if anyone running for CSM is paying attention to things happening in highsec and lowsec, something needs to be done about this lol

    Tell me what would be a good deal to you. I'm afraid I don't want to put too much information in this thread because I wouldn't want him to have a warning, but I can say that he is no lowly miner. He is at least in a small corporation of at least 4 or 5 people. This is basically a little bit of a revenge plot because someone caught me off-guard and I just can't let them get off that easy lol

    Doesn't work that way anymore. You would only get 20% of the value of ship destroyed taken from your bounty.




    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat

    Okay I need to go read some updates notes or something
