|1. ship crew question - in EVE Fiction [original thread]
Look at your in-space drones. They couldn't find their way out of a wet paper bag without guidance from the capsuleer. Not sure if you want to have something like that figuring what to do when if something needs maintenance in your ship. Specially...

|3. Goons 4x4ing through the Sandbox - in EVE General Discussion [original thread]
I think this is a nice moment to have a nice laugh at the haters and to give a really slow clap to Aryth & crew. You magnificent bastards.

|4. Planetary Defense? - in EVE Fiction [original thread]
Weapons in the EVE setting are a few degrees more scary than all the real life nuclear arsenal this far in existence put together. Tachyon beams can literally dig canyons and crush planets into tectonically unstable molten slag after a concentrate...

|6. Pod Pilots - Immortal but only in their pods? - in EVE Fiction [original thread]
In EVE's setting, the technology to take the brain scan does potentially exist in portable format. The problem is to decide what signals to use to trigger it. False positives would fry the brain and leave behind healthy bodies (consciousness would...

|7. Planetary Defense? - in EVE Fiction [original thread]
There's little that is mentioned in Prime Fiction. Getting from planet to space is considered very difficult in EVE (or was at least during the early run of the game, PI might have changed that), so one might expect to see more on the lines of orb...

|8. Why are Caldari and Amarr allies? - in EVE Fiction [original thread]
Also good to remember that the Caldari system - at least in the propaganda - isn't entirely run by money. There's no American dream to get rich, at least not for the most of the work force. I would assume that at least the Patriots (Kaalakiota-Lai...

|9. How does my ship move? - in EVE Fiction [original thread]
The official handwaving reason for top speeds is that the warp core interacting with the space-time continuum creates drag. (The actual reason is that combat at a few thousand km/s becomes a wee bit too much for most people as well as the server....

|10. Information on Assassins of New Eden - in EVE Fiction [original thread]
All empires have their own internal security organizations, which occasionally assassinate troublemakers. And of course, if the target is in space, they may hire capsuleers (i.e. players) for wetwork. As for public offices, all Caldari megacorps h...

|11. Is there any designs to what the decks might be on eve ships? - in EVE Fiction [original thread]
I don't think there's official deck plans. There's some "tech schematic" videos from CCP. I Hellgremlin/Istvaan did list his own version of the Apocalypse (Imperial Issue) schematics in his writings. http://gh-sc.klaki.net/ImpocSchematic.jpg ...

|12. Broken shuttle in Luminaire - in EVE Fiction [original thread]
Terrans, terrans everywhere! Well, not really. Just like several ships that have vastly nonproportional "cockpits" and "conn towers". Our frigates are roughly the size of real life heavy bombers or large airliners (there's a pic in the Internets ...

|13. How does my ship move? - in EVE Fiction [original thread]
The "Scientific Articles" from the original backstory site are possibly amongst the oldest piece of "Prime Fiction" there is, and some are rather outdated. But yes, they are pretty much made of ploton-stimulated technobabblium.

|14. To CCP: Please don't make anymore tech spec videos - in EVE Fiction [original thread]
Well, the tech specs on ships were kind of funny. Especially since they pretty much ignored CCP's on crew guidelines. As of 600 m range on an assault rifle: Valmet RK-62 has 300 m maximum combat range, with the sights being usually set to 150 m. ...

|16. What ship will be reskinned next? - in EVE General Discussion [original thread]
The Moa and the Raven are wonderful, but could use higher-resolution textures. You know, for ship spinning. Also some minor things like the small city sized "vent" in the Raven. All in all, I am personally rather happy on the ship design in EVE. ...

|18. The Problem with the Caldari State - in Intergalactic Summit [original thread]
I would like to return to the assumption in the original post suggesting that because in the Gallentean model corporations are generally considered just a part of the society they are thus subservient of the society. As we well remember, the extra...

As a note, retreiving character names could technically be done by brute-forcing all valid characters on the Search Character field. For example, let us assume I have never logged on on Mithfindel after creating the character: Anyone searching cha...

|20. EVE languages? - in EVE Fiction [original thread]
Exactly what Horatius said. There are a few easter eggs in the system names, though (for example all CCP founders have a namesake system IIRC). As a humorous example of random-generated coincidences, the crappiest agent in Home Guard, translate...
