Fanfest 2015: [MUST SEE] Structure Changes Video + Dev Blog
« on: March 21, 2015, 05:16:12 PM »
The things announced revolutionize a ton of things, too much for me to condense, must see!
  • Rigging Structures to specialise in specific tasks vastly more efficiently (like ship building)
  • NPCs (interbus) hauling small stuff to you (but being destroyable)
  • High sec XL Structures (replacement for outposts)
  • Player run market hubs with lower tax rates, insurance schemes(sRP)
  • Awful Anchoring shit is gone forever, Active defences that function properly.
  • Infinite storage space in XL structures, such as assembly arrays.
  • Clone Facilities: Wormholers say yay?!!
Tons more, video clip below.

Edit: Genuinely amazing for almost everywhere.....W-Space even more than others. But High and Null too.

We must command the "new jita" outpost. Even 0.1% tax will make us a fortune.

Edit: Brb hiring mercenaries to remove every pos in jita to replace entirely with my own, for reservation purposes.

Are these new things even anchored at moons? Some are clearly planets and belts

May not be actually. Since they made no mention of that then said: "We want anyone who wants to use a structure, can". But then stepped back and mentioned "with some exceptions". - Not sure what that means?

There has to be some limit on location, or you could spam XL structures everywhere in a system.

Yes, but they also said they aren't going to balance anything for cost anymore. Since that isn't a limiting factor long term (bad design).

Also: I'll take 100.

I believe Yd has some for sale at a reasonable price.

This looks fun but right now it also looks like vaporware...CCP has a habit of not following through on these high-level conceptual ideas (Incarna, atmospheric flight, ring mining, modular pos's, etc).

Agreed. but the company has massively changed since then.

Seagull just claimed all of the features announced would be either released in large part, or entirely during 2015 and that she has worked hard to make sure this will happen.

Not sure I believe it myself yet. But if we even get half...that's an incredible turnaround and way more than i'd hoped for.

Well all the structure stuff is eminently doable since they're saying fuck it to compatibility and just making a new system.

Doesn't mean it'll work properly but it makes it entirely reasonable to deliver it in the next few months.

Not even sure that's too much of a fear tbh. Looking at the recent changes....JF, Fozziesov. Admittedly the industry changes were.....not ideal. But they did rush the fuck out of that one. Hope they take the time they require on structures....
