Taith's Grand Space Adventure
« on: March 04, 2012, 07:14:55 PM »
So I told someone not to send me an invite to EVE and they sent me an invite to EVE and now I'm trialling EVE.

I've hit my first road-block.

I'm working through the mining tutorials and the third one asks you to create a couple of afterburners. I had a blueprint and I believe I have the necessary tritanium, but when I try to schedule a manufacturing run of them, I get told I don't have "Industry Level 1".

I can't figure this one out. If I open up the Industry skill, I have Mining 2. Is Industry Level 1 something else?

(PS, 60 day trial or ? - then again you may have missed the op for a 60 day trial, 21 day buddy is the other).

Industry is a skill. Ta dude.

It's a 21 day trial. I'm working my way through the mining tutorials at the moment. Exploration next, I think. Starting to get a small feel for navigation around a system too, which is a good feeling to be getting. And I've already had that instant of anxiety as I wonder whether or not I've queued enough skill training sessions for the next 24 hours.  :D

I can see some of the lineage of this game. The influences of a couple of 90s space shooters is pretty clear. Much better job done here.

My toon name is Taith Kalladian, Galente Dude Taith Kallathis, Caldari Dude.

You need a program called EVEMON:

When you can get an API key feed it to that and it becomes super useful :)

Caldari in pvp are fun btw

Blaster Fit Harpy;s (Tech 2 frigate), ECM boats (jam the bad guys), shield logistics, sniper bs.  Super tanked battlecruisers with variable damage at max range (for their size), all sorts really. (Lots of people say lol no they suck, but I am caldari - who can fly everything subcap but still).

Also you can train other races stuff on your current race so dont feel pigeonholed.

I do sense a certain amount of enthusiasm for this game from Mr J. 8)

The start of the game is funny. After being told by the intro I have essentially elected to become an immortal celestial demigod, the training agent goes on to say, "Now that your original body has been euthanised without complications..."

That one made my jaw drop.

Am I right in thinking EVE does not require a tremendously grunty machine?

My old laptop is a DELL XPS 1730. I bought it about three years ago. I'm thinking to do a clean install of Windows 7 on it. It has a bigger screen than my regular laptop and what with all the windows in it, EVE looks like it could appreciate a bigger screen. Better sound too.

It does if you run everything at high/max

Turn it all down and it'll be fine.

Eve has sound????

Yeah bigger screen is good as it makes things look less cluttered, but in honesty once you get used to it you dont notice the cluttered feel.
"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take away from them the power to create money and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money." Josiah Stamp (Governor Bank of England 1928-41)
