Some time ago I remembered about EVE. After years of updates and changes, you created a wonderful huge world with many mechanics and systems, but I noticed one discrepancy. Space is dead. Yes, there are npc, planets, stations, ships, asteroid belts. But! Everything seemed to freeze in an astrophysical sense. Planets do not have a gravitational field and do not “attract” stations and ships. They do not change their location. And I decided to come up with a small update for you that would revive the space. But this turned out to be difficult, because simply updating to launch the planets and incorporate astrophysics into the matter would be a simple visual update, without content. I could not figure out what content could be added to this update. Therefore, I decided that at least part of the update should be created. Namely, the introduction of two new types of systems. A system with a black hole and a nebula with the beginnings of stars.
I did a little research on the game. And I found out that the “best seller” in the game is experience. After all, it takes decades to learn all the skills. After that, I began to find out how to quickly learn all the skills, how much money will be spent on learning them and how much money a person will spend on average per day.
Top-3 types of learning:
- Daily injector
- All together (implants, daily injector, boost)
- Together without injector
From this, I concluded that you need to focus on getting a fixed amount of experience daily. But you can’t just give experience every day. Therefore, I decided that I need to add some place where people will have to get a certain amount of something in order to gain experience. To this end, “nebulae with the beginnings of stars” were added. Also, the prey should not be tiring or very boring, which can negatively affect the desire to play further. Therefore, it was decided to make the mining time about 50 minutes. But there must be excitement in the mining of this energy. Therefore, an average of 10 people have 1 star.
Since people will gain experience freely at the expense of the farm. It was necessary to think about how not to reduce, but rather increase the number of daily injectors purchased. After reading a little bit about psychology, I found that most people have tested a small piece / demo of the product and knowing that the product itself is not so expensive they will be interested in buying it. For this reason, the daily free experience will be 30,000 units. It can be exchanged at the NPC for 1000 stellar energy extracted from nascent stars.
Also, stellar energy will be needed to create experience boosters.
+10 to all attributes
24 hours duration
Recipe mined on level 6-8 expeditions.
1500 star energy for one booster
1500 dark energy for one booster
Two types of torpedoes / bombs will also be added.
- Anti-black hole bombs - allow Hawking radiation to increase by several thousand times (the theory that black holes are mortal and radiate a part every second)
- Bombs black holes - allow you to create a black hole at a point. Which attracts all nearby ships. Does not affect objects like a stargate. May affect asteroid belts.
Information about bombs.
Anti black hole bomb:
Recipe mined on level 1-5 expeditions.
a black hole emits 1% of its mass every second. The percentage is calculated at the time of the collision. Affects only black holes created by players.
Bomb black hole:
Recipe mined on level 9-10 expeditions.
flight time - 16 seconds
flight speed - 3000 meters per second
maximum range - 48,000 meters
creates a black hole weighing 6.73 * 10 ^ 28 and a diameter of 200 meters (Schwarzschild radius)
the force of gravity is reduced due to the “progress” of mankind and the ability to resist it - F * 10 ^ (- 9)
damage - for every 6.37 * 10 ^ 28 in the weight of 1080 damage. Damage is divided between shield and armor (50% / 50%)
damage type - kinetic
black hole absorbs holes with less weight
life time - 1 hour
You will find more information in my calculations in the excel document EXCEL. This concludes my description of this small update. I hope you enjoy the black hole generator bombs which could make changes to the current mechanics of the battles.
