Re: what is your favorite os
And you can like "get out" of your ship and walk around and stuff right? That's the one thing I don't like about EVE On-line...
of. Essentially, you spend much of the game zooming around in your starship. When you dock at a "home base" spaceport - think of these like the main cities from World of Warcraft
- then you beam into the starbase and you can walk/run around and whatnot. There are quite a few starbases around, like Spacedock
at Earth (you'll be seeing a lot
of that place when you begin the game), Qo'nos
(if you're a Klingon player; you don't get to play a Klingon until after you've finished the Federation tutorial and hit Lieutenant Grade 5) Deep Space Station K-7
(from "The Trouble With Tribbles"
), Donatu station (a recent addition), Memory Alpha
, Starbase 39 Sierra
, Deep Space Nine
(I usually spend most of my time docked there) and the Captain's Table (a recent addition accessible only to those with either a lifetime subscription or those who have been active players for 200 days). Recently, a few planet-side maps were added as well: Vulcan
(it's basically just a social area that looks like the entrance to the temple at Mount Seleya), Andoria
(a place to engage in ritual PvP) and Risa
(another social area, this one more useless than any other; since the game is PG, all references to sex - or jamaharon
, if you really
wanna be geeky about it - have been removed and you're basically wandering around a large beach party). Additionally, you can walk around your ship's Bridge and other major areas (Sickbay, Engineering, the Transporter Room, the Mess Hall, your personal quarters) at any time and use these as a social area to meet with other players in private.
As for missions, there are several
missions that occur on the ground or on derelict spacecraft/starbases/etc where you beam down with an away team of four NPCs whose careers you control (you're not just leveling your character alone, but several other NPC crewmen) and complete objectives, combat enemies, whatever.
Aaaaaaaaaand I think if you want to know more about the game, we should either chat in PM or make a new thread, lest we hijack the primary topic of this one further.
