yeah this is pretty cool but just a demo for now. star citizen is also going to support the rift so if they decide not to push it forward then we can all still be cockpit pew-pewing next year.

having games that slot into the eve universe and economy is cool in theory but if other games are cooler in gameplay then it's less interesting that humans somewhere are actually making my game stuffs rather than an algorithm.

forums.  serious business.

nothing is official, this was a small project made by a handful of devs on our own time. after hours, late nights and weekends. But it for sure is an interesting approach to gaming.

so what you're saying is that we just need to keep bribing you guys with beer, and we'll have a full EVR game by next fanfest?

this would be nice if people who didn't want to drop ~couple hundred dollars on the rift, like myself, were still able to fly fighters.

That's a Templar, an Amarr fighter used by carriers.

By the sounds of it you guys got a solid prototype done very quickly. If CCP doesn't want to do it you might want to try a kickstarter.

I'm sure they could make it. But integrating it into the Eve universe in any meaningful way would be near enough impossible.

Although you might see a neat mini-game at some point I wouldn't hold your breath for being able to fly fighters in Eve cap fights.

I got a chance to play this a bit in the office recently and I was absolutely amazed by it. I was saying to the guys who've spent their nights and weekends on it that as one grows older there are fewer instances where you get truly and deeply excited about something new you experience. This was one of those times for me and I felt like a child again after playing.

I'm immensely proud to work with such talented and forward thinking people :)

no. with beer you can get MUCH more. :D

and now to the correct answer: I can't say anything about what is coming and so on. the guys on the team will be working on this regardless of what CCP officially will choose to do, but it will of course be easier for us to work on something like this if we can do this during office hours and not from 4PM to 4AM and then get no sleep and on weekends so that we don't see our families. :)

something like this in seven weeks is only possible with a passionate and good team, and it was certainly and honor to create this and it was worth every second of production to see the players playing it yesterday and their reactions when they left the stage.

But nothing is official on how this will continue, so no promises.

You guys have the lore, the systems, the jump mechanics, basically a lot of game assets and infrastructure is in place for this game already, I'd think it would be a massive hit if CCP did this. Most people I know would give their right/left nut to be able to hop into a fighter and dog fight in the EvE universe.

Ps, I'm willing to bribe anybody that opposes this in CCP with beer and damsels in distress...

Do not give me likes them 101 likes arent a accident...

I was also giggling like a child too. Amazing experience, thank you for creating that amazing experience.

I am happy that, at the end of it, I got my legs back.

Just make it a separate game mode where clone pilots fight to the death in gladiator arenas in space while capsuleers place bets.

You're welcome.

Create somewhat more effective "Advanced Fighters and Fighter Bombers" that are pilot only.

Allow Carrier and Super Carrier pilots the option of stocking standard or advanced fighters/fighter bombers.

Integrate voice coms and an overview, perhaps one that has it's content is controlled by the Carrier/Super Carrier pilot.

It does look really interesting, I'd definitely like to try it out one day.
With the integration of dust into the eve universe, I don't really see there being an issue with adding a 3rd game stream



aside from the extra complexity ...... but im sure you guys at ccp would enjoy that kind of challenge Big smile
