While I used to positively hate the Caldari asymmetrical designs, I hated the Gallente designs even more. The Imicus/Helios "lolwtf" look, the Exequror/Oneiros "OMG-I-Lost-An-Engine" look, the Thorax/Deimos "phallus with one ball" look, the Domi/Sin "Nike-Adidass pimped trainer" look etc, but the Blackbird/Falcon "Lego-ECM" look, the Moa/Eagle "3D designer on acid" look and Scorpion/Rattlesnake "Who needs wings" look weren't far behind, at all.

This is a marvellous remodelling job and I'm pretty glad I can fly one now, even though the Disco Scorp will now be somewhat less funky on the dance floor.

Congrats CCP. Now, take some time to address the other asymmetrical crazies and we'll really be motivated to g out and lose them in combat.

Oh, and make the Raven symetrical and you'll have an ubar ship model.

I have tried to type this post about 3 times now, but simply couldn't find the words for how mind blowingly awesome this is.
BRB off to buy 12 of them.

Also to which CCP character should I direct these spirits and exotic dancers to?

Em, what? The Maelstrom is badass!

Nice job on this CCP. Will this fix some of the terrible "wrinkly" textures on other ships? It's like the designers didn't want to bother with actual details, so instead they just bumpmapped in random noise - and it looks terrible.

Fail redesign.

The design itself is more or less normal but the way it looks on images u'v shown us is idiotic. Are u trying to make fly toys?
Make it look more realistic. Remove half of the glossiness from the surface and maybe (just maybe) it'll look more or less ok.
Only ships that look realistic atm are Drakes and Hurricanes (one can add Hel and Phoenix here along with few others).
After T3 hulls were introduced to the public everything seem to be heading in the wrong direction.

JUST MAKE IT MORE REALISTIC!Evil or Very Mad

Thanks CCP.

And it's even more wonderful news to see that this will happen to every single ship. Fantastic.

I have a feeling most ship models with remain as they are but with new shiny textures. The only exceptions being the ones that are broken like the Scorpion.

I would love to see all ships symmetric but I don't think that will happen.

It will make you wince.


I just took a couple of mine out and self destructed them.
Would be even 'moar awesummer' if players could get access to the NPC paintjobs.

The new Scorpion model is absolutely fantastic! Very Happy Theres just one thing I want to see that's different from the screen shot. Could you subdivide the big armor plates into lots of littler ones? It will make the ship feel bigger than it does now. Smile

Yeah, really looking forward for this changes Very Happy

But please, please, please don't make the same mistake which ruined C&C and make the ships look like toys or even living creatures / animals... For the Scorpion removing the small pincers (hope this is the right word) would help a lot. The model is awesome though, even I'm not sure if I really like the Scorpion becoming symmetrical.

Which leads us to the next point: Please don't make to many ships symmetrical and therefore to similar. Asymmetrical ships are typical Caldari so please let them keep their own design.

And finally:
You said all the ship models will be redone so "We would have to redo all ships if we implement this and this would take to long and would be too expensive" is no excuse anymore for not adding some launcher fitting spots (like the ones for turrets) to the models. I want to see whole salvos of missiles going to my enemies and not only one sparkling dot of light leaving the center of my ship from nowhere.

Well, if ever there was a time to introduce the ability to build various faction varients of ships it would be during the artistic revamp of them. A lot of industrialists would be overjoyed to be able to occiasionally build a faction paint job varient of a standard ship. Obvoiously, most ships (Mordus for example) would be identical to the Civilian (or dare I say Navy) version in every way except paint job. I don't think that would be an issue with people at all, they would simply be overjoyed to get "some" sort of distinctive look to the ship they are flying.

We have long known that individual customization of paint jobs will likely never happen, or at best be restricted to corp/alliance logo. We also know there are very good technical reasons for this. However these textures will already in game, which I would think (I could very well be wrong) that would allieviate many (if not all) of the issues costomizable paint jobs would bring. I can understand if you think it would be confusing or interfere with the RP element or back story of EVE... then again, it might add to it immensely.

Please consider making it possible to build these ships as variations of the Civilian ship (or make available somehow as identical version of the Navy ships).

We might finally get Symmetrical ships in EVE

I really love the look of the new Scorpion.

Lets just hope they don't stop there and take too long in getting others released.

Keep up the great work CCP Designers.

Nice improvements to the detail of the model and texures/shaders, but the decision to make the ship symmetrical is a real disappointment. It now looks like some kind of cereal packet toy and has lost the uniqueness that all previous fans enjoyed about it.

New texture like at planet and voila my friends, i introduce for you the new dominion features, 3x lag and video lag spike.



Yes, the ART DEPARTMENT taking care of the server will surely have awesome results...

Originally by: Lilly Tigress
what about fixing existing problems instead of creating new ones over and over? no one can see the shiny models anyways that has a bit of a clue of fleet fights, so please go on in creating new shiny fancy useless stuff instead of trying to get rid of sov bugs, fleet lag, drone bugs, warp bubble bugs ( insert more random critical game failiures here)



Once again, what the **** makes you think that any of the faults you mentioned has anything to do with the ART DEPARTMENT?
