Everyone knows that internet spaceships are serious business. Relatively few, however, recognize the grave importance of EVE Online's
late great ship spinning mechanic.
Happily for the hardcore, those few include CCP
developers, and as we mentioned a few weeks ago
, one of New Eden's favorite pastimes is coming back from the dead. A new CCP dev blog
spills the beans on the release date, and EVE
vets will probably be thrilled to hear that ship-spinning is coming to the Singularity test shard today. The feature is tentatively scheduled to return to the Tranquility live server on October 18th during an extended downtime beginning at 11:00 UTC.
CCP has also added the old hangar interface functionality back into the EVE
client, and users with sub-optimal Incarna
computer specs (or those who simply hate walking in stations) can opt to turn off the game's captain's quarters and party like it's 2010.
A weekend discount on PLEX
has also been announced.
