Ok, Im postivite Yall are also a little peeved that most of the ships in EVE are not symetrical...

Like the Kestrel.....so Lop-sided...Yet the drake is very symetrical...

Also Whats with all the UGLY ships...Like srsly Raven looks like a flat faced pug or something...EW?!

Vent your anger about un-symetrical ships HERE!!!

Ships which are deliberately asymmetrical don't bother me, Ships which are supposed to be symmetrical yet have MODEL ERRORS make me lose my mind.

I think the Kestrel is one of the better-looking frigates, personally. Miles better than the flying tumor that is the Imicus, anyway. The Drake, IMO, is fairly boring to look at. The Raven is perfect as-is; make it symmetrical and it loses a lot of its visual interest, as well as the prevailing Caldari aesthetic.

Raven kinda looks a bit stupid imo. Some poor design choises made on it, like the huge air outlet on the back?, the wierd cockpit thigy on the front? Makes no sense :P

biggest problem with the raven is the textures on it are too low resolution, it looks terrible if you zoom in on it just a little

Tempest has wingy bits and cockpit that extends 500 meters in front of the ship for no apperent reason besides being shot off.

Caldari ships are supposed to flaunt the ideas of conventional beauty. It reflects the spartan attitude of the race as a whole.

What do you want, pink ships like the Gallente?

Ships that at least makes an effort to seem effective, having an extended cockpit like that does not count. The Drake on the ohter hand looks effecive.

Personally I want more vertical ships models.

The myrmidon is almost perfect, but i feel it should have been a bit longer and thinner then it is now. A homeworld style space banana would be especially appreciated.

bah, it looks good. Kinda like one of them Minbari ships. Hmmm, bet that's where they got the idea for the Myrmidon from.

Considering that Gallente are supposed to be of French origin, the thought that their ships are pink, frilly and TOTALLY girly seems somehow....fitting :)

That's funny... i think the Kestrel is about as sexy as they get, while the Drake is a snoozer.

Raven looks like **** though, jumbled up garbage... it's like the modeler just threw a bunch a crap at the wall and kept what stuck.

Helios! CCP changed its model from a nice, symmetrical shape to some obscenity! I'm glad the current cloaking hides the ugliness from my eyes. ARGH!

A bigger Truster effect like on the Navy Raven, would actualy help The standard Raven and Golem quite a lot.

But meh, CCP aint gonna change anything at all anyway, they probably wont even gonna read this thread :/

what's all the shouting about symetry ? caldari have some of the most interesting and most beautiful ships in the game ...

Gallente are most boring (seconded by Amarr) ...

go to hell with all your symetry ... I don't want boring ship models ...

On another hand... Why do you want symetrical ships? Symmetry = boring. The only boring thing there is to point out of about the current ship models is lack of interesting colouring.

Symetery is a way to deal with friction, of which we have close to 0 in space. But if you want function over looks... we should all be flying in spheres.

All I can vent is my disagreement at T3 Minmatar ship being to symmetrical, that is ugly to me, it doesn't look like Minmatar at all!!

Give more symmetry to Caladri if you desire it so badly, but give more Tempest and Naglfar design to Mimmatar plz, cos that are cool looking ships!Cool

raven is in no way a caldari design. look at all those rounded edges. this is clearly obsolete gallente design, which caldari took when they broke off on their own. even mess that is scorpion or moa are better representation of caldari construction philosophy. yes, some caldari ships test aesthetical norms, but raven just goes against caldari nature.

Ships don't have to be symmetrical but I prefer it for them to look "rational".

The caldari are mostly fine, the industrial look works ok - even the Bantam and Osprey look functional if not pretty and thats fine by me. The Drake is boring though and the Griffin is just strange.

Amarr ships generally look good and "rational" at the came time, sleek, mostly symetrical, centrlined engines etc. All in all probably the best looking range.

Minmatar are patchy, Hurricane and Typhoon especially are favourites - but what the hell is a Rupture supposed to be ? and no one could pay me to fly a scythe. Once, long ago on a another character, a scythe was the only ship for sale in a 0.0 station that I could fly, the resulting nausea lasted a week. I flew the entire trip praying no one I knew would see me.

My own least favourite are the Gallente - especially the frigates. squashed lizard appears to be the look they are going for. Non symmetrical but without apparent reason. Exequeror is just disgusting. Whats the horn on the Incursus for - nothing else has anything like ? Battleships are better.

All in all eve ships are a real mixed bag. I like the way they try to be brave with the designs but some just go too far.

I agree completely. Someone seriously needs to can some modelers. A lot of the ships in Eve just look awful. It's a good thing that the game has other merits. The thorax could be a really good looking ship if it wasn't for that lopsided thing underneath it.

Same with the harbi. A nice ship, decent shape, but but even after some texture updates it's surface looks ugly. Please make the harbi's surface look cooler.

You should take a look at the Scythe and derivatives again, they're vastly improved in premium over classic, Classic Scythe was awfull I'll agree on that(yes i've sat just the same as you, praying noone would see me in a scythe lookalike)

I hate mirror symmetry, now that looks more ugly then a assymmetrical ship like the Raven. Examples of this mirror symmetry are all the battlecruisers(you can even see the seam where the artists mirrored one side to the other on some), Scythe(still better then the old Scythe thoughLaughing)...
To me a ship can be symmetrical but one side shouldn't be an exact mirror of the other. Good example of this I've seen recently is the Tengu(on sisi), overall it's symmetrical but has detailing that isn't. When thinking of other games, a game that pulled that off superbly was Homeworld 2.

This, fix the Domi, please. It can't be too hard surely just fix the damn texture.
