[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Ah yes, the menu hell.  I was distracted by his claim of gameplay footage.

I mean, it's not a lie, the game does look like that...it'll just never look like that while you're actually playing it because you need to be paying attention to crap that matters to not dying.

Or lagging. There is a lot of lag in big fleet fights.

Re: bsg-like eve fan trailer
Man, I loved playing Eve so much. But I'm simply not willing to spend 15 € per month for a game that I only play a few hours. And I don't want to play it a few hours daily to earn enough ingame money to buy game time. Besides, I'm no multiplayer guy, but even the sandbox singleplayer made fun

Still, it one gorgeous game. ****ing awesome big and detailed universe, great ship models, even better space station models.

You could just set up some farming with the new planetary interaction mechanic. You'd probably be able to earn enough ISK for a PLEX pretty fast.

Re: bsg-like eve fan trailer
Yeah, but I doubt that there are still planets available that generate me the 350 Million per month (I quit before the planetary stuff came in). Besides, that means going into the badlands, because there is certainly no usuable stuff in Highsec, if they made it even possible there.

And since I'm no multiplayer, that's the reason I disliked Eve. It lives from the lowsecs, where player greefing and bullying is daily business, and actually wanted. It maybe wanted for the gameplay, but I'm simply not willing to spent my freetime with people who's only fun it is, to camp behind gates and shoot down players, with the goal to do the most economic damage to them.

Such people, I simply cannot accept. I have no fun in such a gameplay, so why should I pay for it. I made all my business in Highsec, and my Account has a value from around 2 Billions ISK, but sofar I couldn't get myself to go back.

Re: bsg-like eve fan trailer
EVE is 0.0. If you're not willing to get your hands dirty out there, I agree, it's not worth playing.

Exactly. The sandbox high sec get's bored after you reached the limit of what you can do alone.

Re: bsg-like eve fan trailer
Do they finally have pilotable fighters? It almost looked like that in the video.

No, never - just drones and fighters deployed by ships, carriers and motherships. EVE does not really have any directly pilotable ships, though some interceptor pilots fly manually by clicking on the screen. Ships are handled by giving menu or hotkey commands; generally combat consists of orbiting a target on autopilot at optimal weapons range, or, in a capship, standing still.

EVE combat is tremendously intense and requires a ton of skill, but it's not twitchy. It's far more complex than practically any game I know with the possible exception of truly hardcore flight sims, and given the amount of organization required might even exceed them.

I can't stand the game, but I love reading about the stuff that happens in it.

(And you'd never want to fly a fighter in a fleet fight given the amount of lag and the number of smartbombs going off.)

Re: bsg-like eve fan trailer
I don't think the space-porn in that video was actually all that impressive. In terms of effects, the recent trailer for the FS2 BSG mod puts it to shame.

I'm tempted to say Nexus had better effects, but that's probably nostalgia talking.
I will ask that you explain yourself. Please do so with the clear understanding that I may decide I am angry enough to destroy all of you and raze this sickening mausoleum of fraud down to the naked rock it stands on.

Fixed.
And yeah, what i liked about that trailer was the music, and the backgrounds.

Consider the scale, though - neither Nexus nor FSO will ever be able to support that many ships in one fight. Fleet fights routinely hit 500+ pilots.

Re: bsg-like eve fan trailer
With this in consideration, I really wonder about how Infinity will come out as if and when it's released. If nothing else, Infinity will bring in the realistic (or at least more realistic) sim aspects to the large-scale MMO.

Re: bsg-like eve fan trailer
While I have no doubt Infinity will provide more interesting moment-to-moment gameplay, EVE will probably blow it out of the water in terms of realism and complexity because of everything wrapped around the flying. What's mind-bogglingly cool about EVE isn't the internet spaceships, that part sucks. It's the fact that unlike any other game ever, players are given enormous power to do just about everything, right down to scamming each other out of thousands of dollars, without any sort of GM intervention.

A given Titan piloted by a single pilot has been built with the resources collected by thousands of players in shipyards assembled by specialist players in a system controlled by sov flags set up by players to fight in a war between two enormous alliances consisting of thousands of players. The market works like a real economy, with everything on sale, prices fluctuating across region and time. Spy networks run by espionagemeisters like The Mitanni extend into real life.

In fact **** it just read this and google Guiding Hand Social Club for a good read.

Re: bsg-like eve fan trailer
This sounds more like work the fun.

While i don't mind having "more features" in a game ( i'd kill for a full BSG Fighter SIM, where i can push a button and it affects the performance of the ship), EVE seems to exaggerate.

From Battutas description and the video in the OP, the combat sounds boring. And by that i mean the organisation part + this orbiting around each other. That doesn't like fun to me.

And the worst part is - it's a MMO.

But at least, they have nice backgrounds.

Re: bsg-like eve fan trailer
You probably wouldn't like EVE. I don't either. That doesn't diminish the fact that it's maybe the most important game in the world right now. I can't think of another that has come closer to the ideal notion of a parallel world you can live in and influence through your own hard work.
