EVE Online Incarna will use APEX Clothing

with 29 comments

According to Nvidia GDC 2010 sessions plan, next major add-on for EVE Online, popular sci-fi space MMO game, known as “Incarna” or “Walking on Stations” will use APEX Clothing module for character clothing simulation.

Physically Simulated Clothing in Eve Incarna Using NVIDIA APEX

In this session, we will demonstrate how CCP added physically simulated clothing to their Eve Incarna characters using NVIDIA’s APEX Clothing. We will demonstrate, step by step, the full authoring pipeline, from DCC tools to final integration into the game engine. This session introduces the full NVIDIA APEX suite of artist friendly tools and runtime libraries (Clothing, Destruction, Particles, Turbulence & Vegetation), which significantly speed up creation and inclusion of scalable, dynamic content without a large engineering effort.

Previosly know as “Ambulation”, than “Walking on Stations” and now “Incarna” project is supposed to pare capsuleer pilots out of their ships and put them into stations – for the first time. (currently, players have no ability to control their actual avatars, only space ships)

Update: APEX Clothing and EVE Incarna – first look from GDC 2010.

[18.08.10] Update #2: Carbon technology blog from CCP, and accompanying video.

  1. Used to have the walking in stations during Earth n Beyond 4-5 years ago, worked well then, can not see a reason why it should not work now

    ATI card users will still be able to play the game ?, got nvidia, shame that dust sub game is limited to consoles only, a bit of walking fps in stations or planets could be fun :)

  2. lol carebearish, CCP has already said that Incarna will be dark and nefarious as any other part of eve, their not gonna throw in a disney world, we’re talking casinos and strip clubs, not barbi’s wonderland.

    I just hope they go far with the darkness :) I wanna run and operate a strip club… i mean i already transport hookers and strippers around in my cargo, why not get them to earn some damn isk.

  4. “ATI card users will still be able to play the game?” -Jay

    NVIDIA APEX is for workstations with Quadro cards, so basicly the stuff that the use to make games.
    Got nothing to do with the eve client running on your computer.

  5. As an off-and-on EVE player since beta, I am really looking forward to Incarna. I’ve played a number of different angles of this game (Mining, manufacturing, Agent missions, Trade routes/Indy ship jockey, PvE, PvP, Fleet battles, Pirating), and am looking forward to this new angle.

  8. I think that just like high sec incarna will bring a false sense of security and warmth, i saw how many levels there were in that station, no doubts the further down the more slime and filth you will find. Who knows? maybe in some areas in space more nefarious deeds could be committed. I already like the idea of a alliance briefing room, it just adds another aspect to the game and i wonder how far that clothing creation thing will go?

    In my opinion, this game is harder than most to keep out the kiddies and complete idiots. And i feel that CCP would go for realism before making this game anything less than what it is supposed to be, so i think you can expect more and more to be released for PI and Incarna after they work out the issues in game.

    I bet Ammar stations will suck ass. If your fore arms aren’t covered, you get put in jail for being a sinner.

  9. To all those with high expectations –
    I doubt there will be a significant increase in the number of eve players just because of this new feature. YEs it will attract more people but i bet it would only increase the popuation around max, what, 10k?
