Eve is going to be an online space trading etc... game
I also had the "leave your space-ship" idea too, around the time that Doom came out... but of course i didn't include the online idea....
if you could leave your ship, you have some really interesting missions!!!
Space walks to asteroids etc... would be cool
walking around your own ship would be cool, you could also be a stow away on someone else ship,
i don't want the control space stations idea, turns the game into a "Football Manager" game
