"Undiscovered" stuff in the game.

Shortly after wormholes came to the game, a dev (CCP Dropbear ?) made a comment that there was 'content' ready to be added to the game, but it depended on capsuleers 'discovering' certain un-named things in the game in in order to trigger the additional content.

I asked about this some time later in a forum post , but never received an answer from CCP.

I ended up taking a year-long sabbatical from the game, and having been back for a while now, I can't see where the situation has changed regarding this particular thing, so I will ask the question again:

Does the 'hidden', undiscovered content still exist in the game, waiting to be properly interacted with, or has that concept been abandoned with the departure of the dev who was working on it?

Thanks in advance for a definitive answer from a CCP dev.

The undiscovered things in game are merely strings attached to CCP's wrists and have goons controlling from the other end.

It goes deeper than that. There are strings attached to our wrists, but who controls those?

Since content in EVE is mostly player generated, "hidden content" is likely just CCP code for: Suprise butt secks from other players.

There's a million angry citizens looking down their tubes..at me.

It's probably something like if you spin your ship 100,000 times and go into CQ the door opens.

Did the meaning of 514 ever come to light?

To answer directly, since I was following the same path years back (since the whole storyline and discussion wen active), it looks like the storyline has been abandoned.

Why I think it's abandoned? Well, there were some containers in the W-Space site called "The Mirror" which could not be opened. The whole storyline, when it was active, revolved around two sites: "Oruze Osobnyk" and "The Mirror". As far as I know, "Oruze Osobnyk" was decyphered by the community at that time (3-4 years ago), but The Mirror, its meaning, purpose and those containers that could not be opened directly were left as a mystery.

I have checked The Mirror earlier this year and I noticed that the containers were no longer there (they are not seeded with the complex any more).

That's no secret, it's the almighty dollar.

My memory is failing me on the exact comments, but this was brought up at the 2013 Fanfest Wormhole round table.

In short the narrative was supposed to be continued, but after Apoc. teams were shuffled, people left CCP and wormholes fell foul of the same slow narrative the rest of the game has. Hidden content was asked about, but the devs that were there didn't know anything about it and said they were fairly sure the players 'know' everything about WH space currently.

I'm 99% sure it was Dropbear, but there was someone who handled the narrative for wormholes and had big plans for it. They no longer work at CCP though.

You need to keep in mind the devs who currently work on wormholes are different to the ones when Apoc. was released. Anything that needed 'activating' on CCPs side is almost certainly dead.

Date of Legion announcement
So likely just a part of the contract with Sony and some wear it on the cuff.
Much like my name, it has the meaning in plain view, yet no one grasps it.

What if all of CCP just turned out to be Chribbas' alts??Shocked

"Engage."

They say most of your brain shuts down on the EvE forums. All but the impatient side, and the sarcastic side. No wonder I'm still awake.
