The new trailer says it all. The question is: when will CCP release it? Will the ever release it? They would be stupid if not because it will open a complete new perspective on our PvP.

Since ships are just vectors to the server, this sounds quite possibly easy to implement

It should be able to record every ship's vectors that are on grid, making for the 'Look at' command useless for recording, but used more in the editor

It is a great feature, but it is not deadly necessary. This could be slowly developed over a year or two.

The problem is making it deterministic. It should show the same battle every time, which means you cant use the dicerolling the use for damage etc.

THAT'S THE SPIRIT GUYS!

Please keep up the support, if CCP see's this thread explode, we'll get it sooner rather than later. And before someone tries to convince me that later is better, need I remind you it will require multiple bug patches then anyway, so why not release it in beta, buggy, crashing form that we can barely use and complain about in the meantime! Because, lets face it, having it is better than NOT having it!

Also I'd like to thank CCP Atlas for his contribution. That Dev badge is really attracting attention! <3

Here's a thought - wouldn't it be great to have museums of war in EVE? Places where you could see and marvel at past battles, as submitted by the users. Places like "The Fall and Butchering of GoonSwarm", "The Last Struggle against RED Alliance", "Joe's PVP Videos", and so on. Owners of such structures/station services (player/corp/alliance), could ask for a fee to view their exhibition. And it could be integrated with WIS, where you'd walk like you would normally in your today's museums, seeing parts of the videos shown on the displays.

@ #52: Awesome idea! It would be a little more interactive than this.

Heck I would just support a demo record function that can be replayed/recorded on a local client. This way CCP won't be asked to foot a majority of the bandwidth, and it would be up to the users to troubleshoot/record/upload the videos.

primary reason I don't record fights is the performance drop, and surprise nature of most PVP - I don't want to run fraps for ages while trying to get a fight or while I'm just traveling.

Why you no care?

Yea, people keep Fraps open in the background just-in-case. Pain in the space arse.

The idea is great, but I'd like your thoughts on the metagaming possibilities of it.

You know, showing how that titan transaction really went sour while in fact that ship is logged-off in a safe system, or perhaps showcasing your alliance using a vid where that really huge blob of reds were poping like flies while your own fleet somehow went without a loss.

After all, you do control every byte of your local files.

Should the eve server generate some sort of md key or something like that?
