ship spinning dev blog

bonus is the announcement of the testing of a new cyno effect


they announced it, but they never said when it would be coming, which lead most of us to think 'well, it's basically coming never'

it would have made this blog at least 20% cooler if it had confirmation that ship spinning was returning to sisi today


Soon(tm)

The good news is that they have it in a testing state...so this isn't some drawing board idea that won't ever make it. This is a functional piece of software complete with screen shots. Don't be such a negative nelly.

will those of us with CQ turned off be receiving updated door pictures?

The door will be replaced by a ship spinning in a hangar,actually.


Best news since Incarna was deployed. Big smile

As to the CQs, they look damn pretty, and I'm sure that took some serious work, but I'm still not turning that on. Way too much of a resource hog and no functionality that justifies it.
I'm firmly on the "EVE is a spaceship game, damn it!" crowd, at least until WiS actually has content, features and a point to it (and doesn't turn my computer into an overpriced electric grill Ugh)

Please do refocus on spaceships that go pew-pew P, fixing the broken stuff and finishing the half-baked features and content that's been abandoned since forever.

Also, improving the Mac client would be much appreciated. (Windowed mode resolution, multi-screen spanning, performance...)


The guy I have been harassing to give me more resolution options for the Mac client ran away to Africa, I probably need to find someone else to pester about this until he gets back from hiking Kilimanjaro.

I hope that as well as lens flares, the Eve future will be full of STABILITY. The CQ isn't much use when--even with a pretty hi-spec rig--having it enabled crashes my system with alarming regularity. I came within a hair of dumping EVE altogether out of disgust at the stability problems. The only way I can play the game is with CQ disabled.

It would be really nice if CCP would prioritize stability over cutting-edge CQ graphics.


What are your system stats?

Why should that matter? Going from "playing the game at the high end" to "the game nukes my computer" without any change in system requirements is Bad regardless of the system stats. That's one of my bigger pet peeves (besides the regular stuff), the constant decay of client-side performance.


Artanea: My system is on the VERY low end, and while slowish (and therefore having WiS turned off most of the time while i'm stuck with my 3 year old hardware) I have yet to see it crash when active.

Invest in a properly stable computer next time. It's not more expensive. The investment is time, either spent researching your own build or spent insisting on it with your computer vendor. Low framerates on acceptable hardware are something to rightfully complain about, your system puking up its insides while generating them is not.

mkint: Continually increasing demand on system specs is to be expected from a continually developing game. While QC is demanding right now, so were trinity graphics for some people in the beginning. Tho yeah they might have mentioned it Smile

OT:
QCs look very nice, but I do hope you guys get to the 'meat' of WiS soon: the interactive bit. The anticipation of the players (minus the people that don't want any of it, ofcourse) is about the establishments, corporate offices with meeting rooms and all that good stuff.
Also, yay for the new old hangar view coming non-tm-soon!

Amarr balcony is best balcony,

but towards some feedback i still strongly belive that the amarr CQ should be moved to the side of the hanger insted of where it is now and the ship should be locked at a particuler position rather than it run away and creep towards me when i move around.

this is going to make me play eve more ............ NOT What?

fix the game instead of adding this useless crap

we want webs back
where's our nano?
give us blasters
sort cruise missles
fix your probing, so sniping is a valid tactic instead of a certain dead
where's out AoD doomsday so we can get rid of those drakes/ hurricane/ abaddon/ maelstrom blobs
get rid of the CSM that doesn't serve us but only serves their alliance needs

do you guys really live under a rock or something? you listening..? seeing you just continue pouring out useless additions and barbie-on-line add ons. We want the raw pvp back not this mind numbing bullshit you turned this game into


Hmmm....

* we want webs back - um?!

* where's our nano? - Buried 10ft under where it belongs

* give us blasters - Agreed

* sort cruise missles - Sort them yourself? By type.. volume.. name.. whatever...

* fix your probing, so sniping is a valid tactic instead of a certain dead - learn how to snipe

* where's out AoD doomsday so we can get rid of those drakes/ hurricane/ abaddon/ maelstrom blobs - Because sub-capital blobs are really the problem with super capitals...

* get rid of those CSM (some do an excellent job "raises glass to seleene, trebor, white tree and others) who doesn't serve us but only serves their alliance needs - Now you're preaching, brother!

The artwork is very cool but as a living space for the 'elite' they are very spartan. Unless you plan on doing the Nex stuff for that (I still ain't gonna do it)?

Also as far as I can tell the Minmatar CQ still looks like a dank basement, just with another lamp.

Looking forward to the FIS stuff though.

    That actually looks really good, the Amarr one especially. Nice job to whoever designed them Shocked


    I still won't be using them though, not because they don't look good but because it's basically still a singleplayer feature and there isn't really any new gameplay in them for me to play around with.

    I just hope being able to walk around in stations with other people isn't too far off in the future

    HAHA no, I do get told... I just had to go AFK for a couple of hours today and forgot to get an update on the latest when I got back.

    May have missed this above, but we are currently expecting more info next week. It's like he anticipated my question and emailed me when he got home :D

    I am playing just fine with those (except the ones i agreed with you)! Why don't you take some of your own advice?


    I get along just fine with killing people using cruise missiles.. i get along just fine sniping people with apocalypse/arty geddon/tempest.. i get along just fine piloting my dramiel and your "drake/hurricane/abaddon/maelstrom" blobs aren't much to much effective against supercap blobs to begin with already (unless you're trying to pvp with a titan alone in which case you don't deserve to be in a titan to begin with) without having people abusing AoD weapons again.

    didnt you say exactly the same thing about the sov upgrades you added in dom? (i wont point out that in 2 years you have added exactly 0 new sov upgrades, dispite this easily upgradible system)

    OMG when can i get a pic here
