Focused Shield Emitters for Dropsuits

It’s amazing how news and rumors spread at lightning speed throughout the galaxy. Probably I won’t surprise anyone if I tell you that they have recently discovered some Sleeper implant that instantly transfers consciousness, even at the moment of death. I’m sure you know that the Amarr were the first to implement this technology in their Templar program, creating soldiers dangerous beyond measure. Present day all the factions in the cluster are busy with researches and developing infantry dropsuits for their soldiers, equipped with this kind of device. Ground combat will soon become much heavier as they’re also developing more devastating weapons. 

I’m saying this because I have also been working on dropsuits in the past, mostly during my tuition in the Caille University and I am very excited to learn about things like these mentioned. I’m here to present some other piece of technology that has been in my lab database for ages and I think that it is finally time to show it to someone like you.

It’s about some new type of devices that are meant to become a part of dropsuits equipment.

They are called Focused Shield Emitters.

It's the Looks that They Meet First

Hey folks! It’s been a long time since the last post from me. So now I’m back and there are some more thoughts that I’m eager to share with you.

We all remember Incarna and the events around it. Many of you may not agree, but I think that having Captains Quarters is great and it was the first and fundamental step to Walking in Stations – something that many of us were asking for.

I was really happy to have all the options available in the new Character Creator. Character customization was pushed to the next level and the options to choose between various clothes for your pilot added some good flavor to our looks.

All these things made me think of some more options that would be necessary in order for us to have more customizing and personalization freedom. I know that Team Avatar is rather busy right now with some other interesting things, but it is not too early to just mention some ideas.

Here we go.

Racial Clothes, Accessories and Hairstyles

Yeah, how nice would it be to have character looks that represent each race individual culture and clothing design? Along with casual clothes currently available for everyone, there might be Casual Racial Clothes that show each race overall style that should be unique.

Shield as a Weapon

Hey! Good news!

Right now I am working on an exciting new project. It’s about some new shield technology that would change the combat style of many capsuleers. Everything is still on the project table of course, but I’m hoping to attract some attention from the technology corporations out there, so that they can fund and realize the idea.

I will present the project right away.

Ammo Revolvers Idea Revised

Hello people!

It doesn’t have to be Monday to have a bad day and it doesn’t have to be Friday to have a good day. Seriously who said that Monday is a bad day anyway? I don’t believe in this nonsense.

So no matter what day it is today – it’s a great time to revise the Ammo Revolvers Idea.

I have thought of some clarifications and some work on the detail and also I have added my personal opinion regarding the balance of the idea.

When I started thinking of Amarr ships laser systems that have the advantage to quickly switch between various frequency crystal types, I thought that it is not fair. Adding the fact that most frequency crystals provide infinite ammo supply made me think that compared to other faction ships it is not fair at all.

Uncharted Space and Multicapsule Ships Further Notes


Reading the things that I wrote in my previous posts made me finally notice that I haven’t clarified some things about Multicapsule Ships and Uncharted Space. I can perfectly imagine what I mean by saying Uncharted Space but it seems that I haven’t explained it to you in detail. I apologize for that. Here is some clarification.

Adding More to Multicapsule Ships

Here again.

Since I started to fiddle with the Multicapsule Ships idea these days (starting here and continuing here), now it’s time for the next part. Surprised? Yes? No?

Never mind.

As usual for my boring style of presentation I will answer some more of the questions that I ask myself while thinking on the idea and by some chance you may find out that you would ask the same questions, well… in case you are familiar with the topic. ;)

Let’s begin.

“How would Multicapsule Ship Captain and Crew perform their Exploration tasks? Would they need to equip a Probe Launcher on the host battleship and so lowering its firepower?”

Multicapsule Ships Again

Thinking more on the Multicapsule Ships idea leaded me to the next pieces that need to be added in order for it to be more or less thorough. 

So now I will answer some other questions that may come to your mind if you started to get familiar with the idea.

”It is said that Multicapsule Ships can obtain ores found in Uncharted Space. How exactly would that happen, keeping in mind that they would have their High Slots equipped with Large Turrets/Launchers so that they can defend themselves?”

Multicapsule Ships Idea Evolving

Good day!

Finally I have some free time, now that I have passed all the exams for my tuition and the only thing left is the diploma thesis.

 Some of you remember the Original Multicapsule Ships idea in my blog and in the Black Pearl Project presentation site. It has now evolved a little. Follow the link to refresh your memory. It’s a long read, be warned. Right now I will share my new thoughts about this.

I just want you to know that all the ideas in the Black Pearl Project will be written down in a cool shiny pdf file, with lots of pictures, and it will be presented to CCP. It is no secret – this will be my portfolio, because I want to work for these guys. I need to improve my skills and it may take years to do it, but I will do my best because this is what I want to do – I want to contribute to the EVE universe. :)

Back on the Multicapsule Ships idea. It’s clear that I don’t really have the knowledge and experience as a capsuleer and so I am not in the position to give advices and ask EVE Devs to consider Multicapsule Ships as an option. This will change with time. Until then I will be sharing my thoughts here. Any constructive critiques, opinions and ideas will be highly appreciated.

Silver Wings Background

Today I decided to disclose some information from my classified projects. After a short discussion on Twitter regarding the idea of a Tech 3 Dropsuit in DUST 514, I thought that it would be nice to share my ideas. I’ve been thinking of such things for a very long time and I have written off some concepts regarding the unique abilities that Tech 3 Dropsuits would have. Well… maybe I will share them in a later post, but I will do it right, that's why now I want to show you the Background Story of the secret agency that has manufactured the Dropsuits (and not only) that I’m talking about.

Fitting Experiments - Hyperion Active Tank


Nothing special here, just fiddling with EFT, trying some active tank options on a Hyperion Battleship. Feel free to give any advice or critique.

Tweeted Ideas Reviewed

Good day!

It’s been a while since we started using the #tweetfleetbacklog hashtag in Twitter to share our ideas and visions of EVE. I think that this is one lovely topic and the benefit for both devs and players is really good. And last but not least – this is one more example on how CCP finds a great way to communicate with us and use our feedback to improve our shared world of New Eden.

I am so glad that I participated in this and I will continue sharing my ideas because I love EVE and I want to do my best to help making this world better, richer and satisfying.

This is why I decided to pick all my recent tweets dedicated to #tweetfleetbacklog and put some detailed review on the ideas I have shared, so that you can imagine these things in a better way. We all have ideas and the more we share the better. See what I have in mind.

Animated Drone Bays

Hey there!

Really nice things are going to happen with the next EVE expansion. They already started happening actually. One definitely nice thing is that CCP are now working on Missiles and Missile Launchers tweaking making them well animated and with cool effects.

This is why I started thinking: “What would be next?” and I said “I know – Animated Drone Bays!” :)

Battle Ram!

Today I have some more ideas that I want to share with you.

Right to the point: it’s about desperate times during epic battles between Internet Spaceship Pilots. More precisely – setting a Collision Course and Ram the dominating enemy ship.

Yes – we have seen this in EVE. I do recall the Nyx Mothership colliding with the Ishukone Headquarters station not that long ago.

Keeping these things in mind, I began thinking that it would be a good idea to make Capsuleers able to turn their ships into fiery comets and Ram their rival’s ship.

I also had a similar idea for Drones – they might be able to be set for a suicidal Ram and thus do some unexpected extra damage.

What is the Black Pearl Project?

I am here to introduce my latest and obviously largest project. The Black Pearl Project.

The Black Pearl came as a bright idea for a new Sci-Fi game, but after the massive influence that EVE had on me, I decided that it must be dedicated to this ever vibrant universe.

Present day the Black Pearl Project is aiming to provide fresh ideas to EVE Developers and Players and do the best to enrich the universe of New Eden. Not just once – its goal is to provide concepts repeatedly and become an integral part of our vast and exciting Sci-Fi world. The project will promote ideas of all kind covering every aspect of the game and also provide new elements to fill open gaps or add entirely new content and help New Eden to expand beyond measure. This is my way to contribute to my favorite parallel reality which has become my second Home.

Forcefield Blades

Introducing the Forcefield Blades Idea from the Black Pearl Project.

Being inspired by many blade fights that I’ve seen, I decided to attempt to bring the excitement of such battles to the Sci-Fi universe of EVE. I have done my best to make this idea original and not colliding with existing concepts in the genre. I was not aware of the Nova Knife idea, presented in the DUST 514 site when I was designing the Forcefield Blades. Seems like a strange coincidence that CCP and I have come to similar projects.

Overview Booster

Good things happen during Fanfest. Take the night before it started: I had an idea for some Overview improvements in EVE. On the other day I was watching the Fanfest stream and learned that the CCP Fleet needs improvements on the Overview. Someone from the CSM members talked about it.

So this is what I’m going to blog about.

I will say again that I am out of EVE at the moment because my PC has outdated hardware, but I will get back in one way or another. Meanwhile I am having more ideas.

It all started when I remembered how difficult it was sometimes to select the appropriate target in order to keep distance to your foes or control their influence on you. So I started thinking of some handy buttons on top of the Overview that allow pilots to easily select targets, sorted by different criteria depending on their behavior. I will call them Quick Selection Buttons.

Future Plans

It’s good to have plans. Someone could say that having plans is a silly idea, since most of the things that happen to us cannot be planned, but still it is good to have some idea of what you should be doing for the next few months. Also – I totally agree with this idea:

If you have no plans, chances are that you will eventually fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.
 Jim Rohn

This applies not only in Real Life, but also in EVE… which actually is Real Life again. ;)

So… I am now playing with the EVE Fitting Tool – checking out various fittings for the ships I want to fly in the near future when I will eventually come back to New Eden. This will happen in one way or another. And when it does, I will finally be Home again! :)

Improved Info Sharing System

Hello and Happy New Year everyone!

2012 is an exciting new beginning for me and I hope you feel the same way too. May this year bring to you everything you’ve been missing trough the last one and a lot, lot more! I wish for you to have many adventures, unforgettable moments and shared dreams, also love, joy, brighter days and passionate nights! Cheers! 

Today’s post will be dedicated to some aspect of EVE that I think should be redesigned a little. I am really sorry for not being able to return to New Eden and I hope that you won’t say that I haven’t the right to ask for improvements in EVE while not actually playing the game at the moment.
