Oh no... it's Symmetrical ! ! !
Caldari pilots don't know how to pilot a symmetrical thing. lol :-)

Ohhh, Yes. you have hired new designers ! ! ! Ah ok. But you need to explain for what game they are designing, nope ?

Makes one wonder about the Domi, Geddon and Typhoon doesn't it? I mean does the Roden Domi implode when you undock in sheer contradiction of it's self?

Take the zebra scorp, change the grey stripes to darkish red, and you have a much better widow skin Idea

All I can really say about this is that I'm now training up Caldari battleship and buying one when the redesign goes through just so I can sit in station and spin it.

This thing looks sexy. And I don't even like the Caldari ship designs for the most part, but... damn, I like it. Perfect blend between asymmetry and symmetry, fiercer look but still the same utilitarian Caldari design...

Do want.

For the guy who commented that the Caldari can't pilot symmetrical things, Drakes are symmetrical :P

    It needs no help, it's just among the most hideous ships in EVE, and will rule without question after the scorpion is fixed.

    In case anyone cares about my feedback on this, my main problem with the new models are the textures.

    First of all, the current (Trinity) texture looks like layered metal/ceramic armor. Also, even as lowres as it is, you can see large armor "plates" consist of smaller tiles - which makes a lot of sense, considering the size of the ship.

    The texture on the new screenshot looks more like the ship is made of some sort of plastic, occasionally covered with sheets of tin. There are no tiles visible, the whole texture looking very clean, monolithic, monotone, as if you're looking at a toy, and not a weapon of war whose dimensions are measured in kilometers. The current Mantis and Tengu textures also don't look particularly metallic (carbon-fiber?), but it feels like somewhat less of a problem perhaps because those are smaller ships that are not meant to be heavily armored. On a battleship, it just doesn't look right.

    On this particular model... it looks kinda "tail-heavy", with the "tail" being too long and thick comparing to the rest of the body (of which there isn't much really, just "wings" (claws?)). I'd also make it "grow" from above the engines, like on the current model, rather than from the back, as it seems to be on the new one. The top of the tail actually looks more like a head of an ant-eater than a scorpion's sting. The "fins" on Tengu's CPU Gate nose look kinda cool, but sticking them on the Scorpion looks out of place, as if it's trying to look Minmatar and failing.

    Just to be clear, the new model still looks epic, just saying it could look even more epic :p

    P.S. Would be nice to see Caracal and Griffin remade to get a better idea of where this is going.

    I absolutely love the design, and so I'm really looking forward to any future ship previews.

    Like others, I'd like to see more detailing on the larger plates, to reinforce the sense of scale - but otherwise..? I can't wait to build some :)

    Do not break Drake or Vagabond models.

    I DO like the new Scorpion though. I now have my main training for a Widow as we speak.

    Also do not break Merlin, Tristan, Punisher, Breacher, Kestrel, Vigil, Atron, Executioner, Coercer, Thrasher, Augoror, Scythe, Ferox, Prophecy, Rokh, Megathron, Hyperion, Machariel and anything else that's not broken. But please do give some love to Caracal, Moa, Osprey, Maller, Rupture, Bellicose, Arazu and other stuff that badly needs it...

    The new skin is meh. The new model is epic fail. One of the reasons I started playing Caldari is because of the asymetric models. This is SPACE, we don't have to fly in jet planes any more! Variety for the win!

    Also, what was the art department thinking? "Hey, look, a Scorpion. Let's make it look like a scorpion too! Win!" Ehm, since all the other Caldari ships already look like whatever they are called. Next thing you see is they put wings on the Drake and make it breath fire. Mad

    </rant>

    On the brighter side, I like the second part of the blog. I would definitely love to see more variety in ship models / color schemes, even if it's just eyecandy and no stat-wise difference. Maybe even alliance color schemes in the distant future! Take a look at how Infinity handles it; basicaly you get to pick a primary and a secondary color, and those get applied to preset areas of the ship's texture.

    The Designs look great,

    I'm just hoping for a State Issue ship we can actually obtain in game (Thats awesome) with some sort of missioning but maybe like you can only get one every 6~12 months or something crazy to keep it in the Elite section but have it full of win..

    Asymmetric models in Eve is pure fail. Easiest way to make them not so ugly - is make them symmetrical. Asymmetric models can be pretty nice too, but this way need very good designer skills. Unfortunately Eve designers is just unprofessional lamers, so dont need ask from them too much. When t3-cruisers is appeared, i set graphic level to "low" and start play in text mode...

    Yes, new Scorp model is not exellent, but, i think, this is best quality level that they can make. At least, it is not ugly. Unrealistic, unreasonable, too childish... But not UGLY, as most other ships in Eve.
