Though we only get to play with the results, we all know - to some extent - that somewhere deep within the Matrix of New Eden, some fundamental physics is keeping it all together. But what you wanted to pull the curtain of beauty that the masterful artisan of CCP Games have used to cover the inner workings of the favorite of virtual universe we call EVE, to see these formulas and principles that govern ship behavior, combat fundamentals, and other inner-workings.
Well that's what upsideyourhead, over at Knol - a unit of knowledge, has decided to do. I won't try to summaries or explain what he's doing here, has I failed miserably during my undergrad year in Physics way back during my University days. Suffice to say, this will please and intellectually stimulate the inner geek in all of us, whether big or small.
Here are the first 3 articles he's written. I'll keep adding more as he lets me know about them.
- Mathematical Foundations of EVE-Online
- Tackling on Large Gates in EVE-Online
- Chapter I: Ship Motion in EVE-Online
P.S.: Did you understand any of what he wrote?
