CCP Reveals Dust 514's Mobile Command Center for PlayStation 3

100°
160w ago - Game Designer CCP Remnant has revealed details on Dust 514's Mobile Command Center for PlayStation 3 today.

To quote: DUST 514 is an MMOFPS on the PS3 with large-scale vehicle and infantry combat taking place in, and with a real-time connection to, the EVE Online universe on PC.

Players are able to band up into corporations (e.g. guilds) and wage territorial conquest on thousands of planets. What follows is a thematic description of Mobile Command Centers, or MCC's. At 200 meters in length, these vehicles represent the largest, most powerful weapon a team can acquire, and are flown by a team's commander.

Oftentimes, destruction of the MCC means victory on the battlefield (we'll give you more insight into the game's command hierarchy, a system that allows players to form squads that are led by a player commander, in an upcoming post).

A Caelus-class MCC trawls across the battlefield.

Colossal. Imposing. Devastating. Any of these words could describe the MCC, but only one truly sums it up: Control. The MCC is the nerve center of any army, the backbone upon which wars are waged and battles won. It is from here, locked within the confines of a modified hydrostatic pod, that the commander orchestrates the fate of those on the ground below.

Video: Android Mobile Operating System Running on iPhone 2G!

240w ago - Planetbeing is back on the iPhone scene and brought us Android fully working on the iPhone 2G.

I don't know about you guys, but for me these are some nice news.

Here is his blog post, to quote: "I've been working on this quietly in the background. Sorry about the initial video quality, but YouTube promises that the quality will get better as the video gets processed more. The back part of the version I uploaded to Vimeo was cut off.

I think that says it all, really. Donations via paypal to planetbeing at gmail.com. If you'd like to help, come join #iphonelinux on irc.osx86.hu.

Thanks to CPICH for reversing support, harmn1, posixninja, jean, marcan and saurik for patches, and last but not least, TheSeven for his work on the FTL.

Pre-built images and sources at http://www.mediafire.com/?xqjzn12igfn. Read the README. For generic openiboot instructions, there's plenty now that you can search for.

It should be pretty simple to port forward to the iPhone 3G. The 3GS will take more work. Hopefully with all this groundwork laid out, we can make Android a real alternative or supplement for iPhone users. Maybe we can finally get Flash. "
