Speaking during the “CCP Presents” Keynote at EVE Fanfest 2012, CCP’s CTO Halldor Fannar and Tony Tamasi (SVP Content & Technology) from Nvidia gave a demonstration of dynamic tessellation using the Sansha Revenant carrier that first invaded during the EVE Online: Incursion expansion. Dynamic tessellation is a staple feature of DirectX 11 and we have recently been exploring options for adding DirectX 11 support to EVE Online, leading to the tech demo at Fanfest.
CSM7 Elections: The Results!
The CSM election results were announced earlier by the CEO of CCP, CCP Hellmar, at the EVE Online Fanfest here in Reykjavik. This election has been astonishing to watch, with more campaigning and space drama than we’ve seen in any election so far. So, as promised, the fourteen delegates of the seventh Council of Stellar Management are:
CCP Unifex, during the EVE Keynote at Fanfest 2012, announced that the 10th Alliance Tournament will begin on June 30, 2012.
With new Battlecruisers, boosted Destroyers and enhanced Assault Frigates, we will be spicing up the rule set once again and bringing in some new faces and fresh ideas for EVE TV's coverage. There will be future Dev Blogs on the tournament in the coming weeks which will cover the rules, broadcast schedule and sign up details.
There can be little doubt about what the coolest aspect of EVE is. Inflation, money supply and the velocity of money is where it‘s at, right? Well, that‘s what this blog is about.
Three of four main price indices show considerable inflation in February, ranging from 1.4% for the Consumer Price Index to 8.1% for the Mineral Price Index. This inflation has been evident since last August. Many have suggested that this is caused by the rewards coming from Incursions.
We have had two prominent issues pop up during the release of our new EVE launcher. This blog spells out workarounds for the 2 main problems and to let you know what plans are in place to push out fixes.
These explanations are going to get technical.
Issue 1 - File Permissions
If, during patching, you see something like this error stack which ends with “WindowsError” this may be the issue;
Fanfest 2012 is shaping up to be the best Fanfest ever, however here at CCP we understand that not everyone can make it to this icy rock in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. After all, sometimes you just want to sit back, relax at home, and have a portion of Fanfest brought to you.
Hi, I'm CCP Punkturis of Team Super Friends with yet another Little Things update. The changes listed below were all released with Crucible 1.5 on March, 13, 2012.
These changes are to follow up on the feedback from my last dev blog. I wanted to do more little things but I got sick for a whole sprint so this is all you get now. Sorry :) but I hope you like them!
I'm CCP karkur, and I'm here to tell you guys about a number of Little Things my team, Team Avatar, is bringing you in the next point release. But first let me introduce myself:
I always find it fascinating how the most life threatening issues often come up from the smallest, most innocent moves. For instance, you could enjoy a meal at home, drop the dirty cutlery into the sink with the firm intention to clean it the day after, only to realize two weeks have passed and the kitchen is now inhabited by a new indigenous, hostile life-form derived from all the junk you forgot to wash during that time.
Greetings lovely Internet Spaceship pilots!
