EVE:WORLD is a free project that takes advantage of the Outerra engine's 1:1 scale to bring you a planetary invasion simulator set in the EVE universe. Asking CCP for permission was the first thing we did and we have full permission to use their assets. See the FAQ for details.Your fleet starts in space, close to Earth. Between you and the planet is the enemy fleet. You must strike at targets on Earth whilst being ever mindful of the environmental effects of gravity and atmospheric re-entry. Compensate your turrets as your artillery shells curve off-course the closer you get to Earth. Use smaller ships to make a controlled descent and attack targets directly. Beware, your capital ships were never designed to make planetfall. Even if their armour saves them from burning up you are then left with a 100,000 tonne brick travelling towards solid rock at Mach 5.
One of the problems of using an engine still in development is that I can not progress until it does. I am considering "back-up" engines but nothing strikes me as suitable so far. In the mean time I've been working on ancillary features such as fleet formations.
Fleet creation is procedural. You enter the approximate number of ships of each type you want and the fleet is produced using several random variables. Each formation of ships is clustered loosely around any ship that is significantly larger in size. Some ship types have unique formation options, like the battleship's 22-strong sphere formation. Though far too small to be visible, there are frigates and fighters in there too.
And I threw in some eye-candy screens as well. This is EVE's new Blackbird model that will appear as a T2 Rook in EVE:WORLD.
