It's good to hear that you will be there, and I know I speak for a lot of players when I say we are very, very sad to see you go.

I hope this means new and exciting possibilities have opened up for you.

I also hope that EVE will not lapse back into not caring about it's audio effects, as we all know it should be a huge part of the immersion factor of the game. You helped it get a lot closer to that goal, and we thank you.

Take care of yourself. O7

sooooo.

uhm. we have come to the situation where I have quit my job with CCP.
and I am no longer involved in the development of EVE online as a permanent audio designer from September 1st.

I want to say, that it has been a bumpy ride, yet an absolute pleasure to make the sounds and the systems that now run underneath EVE.
I know some people still say "EVE has sound", but I am honestly very convinced and proud of my work in EVE - which I actually believe made some people turn the sound back on. (correct me if I'm wrong)

We have gone through a lot together, me and EVE and me and the players:
First I re made the turrets, which cause a bit of a stir - but none the less it was a lot of fun making them and seeing the reactions, apart from the almost hate like mails I got - and everything since then always caused a stir and more often that not, not positive responses, (which was when I realized that what was needed might not be new or altered assets)

and so, then! :

We also came to a different tone on the forum, going from just bad jokes about EVE audio and foulmouthing, to an actually sober clean discussion about how things could be changed, what could be changed and what could not - and if not for the forum and you guys, the new audio customization would not have happened - it is purely the result of almost a year of designing, thinking, planning, prototyping and listening to what people said around me, what would make their experience better, and I tried my best to make it so.

I do think, that before I leave, I will change the sound of the cyno and try to fix the sound of the jumpbridge, just to have a place to hide some messages in the sounds.

soooo. .Adios everybody, it's been a pleasure.


Awww, one of my fave devs! Good luck wherever you go to work!

wish you the best wherever you will end up, i am sure it will be glorious.

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

Did you play EVE before you started to work for CCP? If yes. Do they allow you to pick up your old character? Were you allowed to train you character in that time?

I didn't actually. Had no clue, but am pretty happy I found out about the game, play it every day now.
I had some trial accounts from in between I heard about it till I moved on to the project, those I got to keep - but else, you can't keep your characters.

I mean, I had heard about it, but didn't know what it was or anything really.

If you want to know what I did in the past before EVE or hook up professionally or whatever, here is my linkedin.

Sad to have to go! But I and many other appreciate all your hard work in creating the audio ambient atmosphere of EVE and also that you communicated often with the community.

All the best for the future!

Heeey, you're danish. woop woop.

I'd just like to say that audio customization has made it possible for me to have 4+ accounts open all with sound without driving me nuts anymore. It's lovely, thank you :3

I certainly haven't heard people say "EVE has sound?" as much recently.
The work you did was well appreciated. I hope everything turns out well for you, wherever you go from here.

Enjoying the rain today? ;)

Oh my god, thank you. I wanted for years to be able to turn off station sounds without muting the entirety of eve and now I can.

bring it back and FIRE the fool who suggested getting rid of it. The game has lost much of its nostalgia since its removal.

I'd rather sit on soundcloud for 3 hrs and listen to the great music which was removed than do anything in EvE for 3 hrs with that limited selection and lack of music altogether in other space.

Of all the devs you're the absolute last person I'd choose to move on, you're definately several long steps above the rest and I wish ya well wherever ya warp off to. You've done amazing work here and you'll be missed.
