AMBULATION! EvE Online gets playable Avatars!

EVE Presentation Video from NYCC 2008





"Character Artist Ben Mathis offers a sweeping glimpse of the MMORPG phenomenon that is EVE Online and then hones in on his particular area of expertise, the Ambulation project, which will someday allow EVE players to interact as avatars, not just ships. Utilizing dozens of never before seen renders and concept art pieces and three separate videos (one, featuring avatar animation, exclusive to the NYCC event), Ben sets the stage for his own artistic insight into how the Ambulation project is progressing."

Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

    Cool, thanks for sharing. My favorite aspect of it is it's not forced. So a player doesn't have to use it if he or she doesn't want to. All someone has to do is update their avatar and that's it. It must be nice, for screen shot purposes but the modularity appeals to me.

    When will this avatar thing happen?

    This reminds me of Earth and Beyond, being able to walk around stations and such.  Granted in Earth and Beyond you kinda had to, what with only being able to trade with npcs and pick up jobs in the stations.  What I would like to know is if they are adding any options like running stores, frequenting bars, or even private areas for corps or private use.

    No brains, no headache. =)

    running stores
    Planned

    frequenting bars
    Planned

    or even private areas for corps or private use.
    Also planned.

    But it's close to a year until this is supposed to go live, so it will take a while and probably change during that time.

    I can think of a whole bunch of crafting items that could be added because of ambulation. Some that give bonuses to ship combat, mining, npc interactions etc.. I personally cannot wait to see it go live.

    Games I've played/tried out:WAR, LOTRO, Tabula Rasa, AoC, EQ1, EQ2, WoW, Vangaurd, FFXI, D&DO, Lineage 2, Saga Of Ryzom, EvE Online, DAoC, Guild Wars,Star Wars Galaxies, Hell Gate London, Auto Assault, Grando Espada ( AKA SoTNW ), Archlord, CoV/H, Star Trek Online, APB, Champions Online, FFXIV, Rift Online, GW2.

    You ca also imagine things like Different tables chairs etc for decking out your Bar/Casino.

    Another great example of Moore's Law. Give people access to that much space (developers and users alike) and they'll find uses for it that you can never imagine. "640K ought to be enough for anybody" - Bill Gates 1981
