Is this the 1,000,000,000 exploration thread?

am i too late?

exploration is awesome these days. even a noob like me can scan down a site and this can be really really good out in null. I really like the fact that i no longer have to fiddle about with the probes to get them into the proper formation.

I remember when the 1.000,000 giveaways would be ten pages by now.

So either people are learning what a decimal after the 1 means or they're just that jaded that a lot of zeros doesn't matter.

What I like in exploration sites: ships landing on grid with cargo full and juicy mods, I explore deeply their shields then take a very close look at their armor and finally a bit of test on their hull.
Some time can finish with a "squich" marvelous sound of a pod popping under my exploration skills.

One word: Awesome.

Don't think I don't see that decimal lurking there.

On topic: can't wait to get back to hacking.

Also, exploration is... well... meh.

I am still waiting for exploration content.

Exploration = Exploration is the act of searching for the purpose of discovery of information or resources.

Currently there is nothing remarkable. Odyssey was not an advancement but rather a step to the side; a lateral. The exploration "content" is the same as before. The only thing that changed was how to find and get the loot. Which in turn is simply a variation on an existing theme.

I want EXPLORATION! Regardless of the sec status, or if its a WH, I want to discover undocumented sites. Eve is ten years old. Make exploration fresh again. Add thirty new sites. Expand the loot tables radically to include clues to find NEW systems with restricted access. Think new world. Let us map these new areas, sell the knowledge to gate builders who can charge for every passage through the gate (toll gate?). Open a new wave of colonization into systems, constellations and regions that are DIFFICULT to discover, difficult to build infrastructure, difficult to tame.

The reward is a successful discovery, colonization, control. Allow market investment into grand effort to tame the unknown. Isk generation is a by-product from this success.

Make the second ten years of EVE about expanding EVE's real estate. Don't make it easy. Make it hard. Make it challenging. Make it a space opera in the grandest vision of the genre. Make it only possible with dedicated exploration to allow for grand industrial endeavors that cost hundreds of billions; that requires real in game investors; real corp/alliance investors; that requires real cooperation on a grand scale.

It can be done. It has been done to varying degrees in many different kinds of games. Scifi literature is also replete with inspiration. Make EVE an even greater playground than it already is.

Can I have my isk now?

Posting is a stealth "exploration whine" thread. At least I think. We will see if some monies flow my way. Big smile

Once you realize what a joke everything is, being the comedian is the only thing that makes sense.
