With the new avatars in and the game trundling towards is ambition of having all the pilots have their own fully-ambulatory avatar to walk around the interior of space stations, CCP are starting to make progress towards giving players more than just a ship to play with. According to this devblog the “Captain’s Quarters”, complete with your avatar inhabiting it, will appear on Eve’s test server within the next six weeks. It’s going to be single player, essentially offline to begin with, but it’s the first stage, say CCP, to implementing the full “Walking In Stations” tech. I’ve posted the original demo from 2008, so you can see what CCP are aiming for with this.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
