I’ve been meaning to do the new tutorial for quite a while now. I’d originally forgotten but while sitting in Tasti, and being bored as hell, I remembered and started creating a new character. As I hadn’t flown Amarr before, I created a female Amarr Khanid character and named her Reina Alair.

So far the tutorial seems pretty well done, I haven’t noticed any major problems as of yet. The first difference I noticed (well, it was hard not to notice) was that now the players ship starts in a deadspace location instead of in a station. It’s quite a good place to start as it is an abandoned Mining Facility, so it’s quite a convenient place to learn to mine and fight because of the Veldspar asteroids and pirate drones scattered around the area.
I’m currently only up to working for the tutorial agent, but I’ve already noticed a few bugs and general things that shouldn’t be happening.

  • After maximising EVE (after minimising with Alt + Tab while in full screen mode) the engine flame graphics disappear, leaving the trails to look like they’re coming out of inactive engines.
  • I’m not sure if this is a new feature or a bug but mining lasers now only fire once per cycle instead of continuously throughout the cycle. I’m not sure whether a new player would accept this as how they work or believe that they’re not working properly, but when I saw them it led me to think that the lasers weren’t working as they should.
  • This is hardly a big problem at all, but Aurora calls the tutorial agent ‘him’ when it is in fact a woman.
  • When undocking from a station, the overview moves about a third of the way across the screen, meaning that you have to move it back to the side or wherever you prefer it to be.

It seems they’ve really cut down the tutorial, I remember it taking hours to complete. I was expecting to get a whole post written from it but it seems that I’ve already finished it after only an hour or so. I guess that this is proof of how well they’ve condensed the tutorial from a few hours long to just over an hour long.
If you want a more in depth tutorial explanation, head over to Revelations Tutorial – Part I, II & III (oops, I originally linked to the wrong post) over at The Ancient Gaming Noob. This one didn’t turn out the way I had planned, so here are a few screenshots I took while doing the tutorial. I’ll try and get a proper entry (one that isn’t taken up mostly by screenshots) posted soon.

On a side note, I’ve been thinking about changing the layout of my blog. I’m getting a little bored of my current layout so I was thinking about changing it to the one you can see below.

I prefer it to my current one to be honest but I was just wondering how everyone else felt about it. I don’t want to end up as one of those people that changes their blog layout every few months. So, what’s your opinion? Should I stay with my current layout or switch to this new one.

  1. i like that layout better. this one is cool, but that one seems to give a little more room to work with. i like the larger text size too.

    that’s what i like about wordpress here, you can go back and forth pretty easily.

    Yeah. The only thing that’s putting me off a little is that the if I chose this layout, the sidebars would be at the bottom of the page. And they look a little out of place as two vertical strips in the centre at the bottom of the page.

  2. It’ s bug that the lasers only fire once.

    But I cba to find the post saying so.

  3. Ah, I thought so.
    By the way, what do you think about changing the layout? I’m trying to get everyone’s opinion, so yours would be greatly appreciated. 😀
