At the moment it isn't reproducible with BPO's or other means. And I'm not aware of any solid plans for the return of the gift ships.

I know Art would like to see them more frequent because a lot of blood, sweat, tears and chocolate cake goes into making a ship.

You should still take them out and about though even if you risk getting blown up, otherwise it is a very unhappy ship never seeing space but just your hangar.

Sad
Unless CCP works "replaceable" into the plans for this ship both the players and the art department are going to be very unhappy because we won't be flying them; people aren't willing to lose a unique ship (and, thus, a collectors item) to a suicide gank. Besides that, this sounds like it might actually be a useful ship, if it has enough of a niche role for CCP to decide to make a ship to fill that role, then you might as well put it into the game as something that can be build by players, or at the very least acquired by them at a later date if they lose their free gift.

tractor bonus,
Tractors are fine. Boost the range of salvagers.

Nifty design, look forward to it.

Forget dedicated salvage SHIP, has anyone yet mentioned automatic salvage DRONES? They have been in the feature request sticky for years.

I've really enjoyed drifting through sleeper sites in the Zephyr. It came in handy a few times I needed to clean up after... accidents.

well that's kinda neat. to bad I cant use it, since my PI supply chain is in 0.0. I don't want to use it unless we can rebuild it.

I'm much less jaded than all the bloody-edged lifetimers in EVE.

The ship looks freakin' brilliant, thanks very much. Though I do concur it would be a great permanent addition to the ORE fleet in New Eden. EVE is comprised of a large percentage of rum soaked, nay-saying, scum of the galaxy (gotta love them), and I am sure there are gangs being formed as I write this to gank every single pilot flying one of these little beauties.

I had intended on training up to the Gallente Exequror for salvaging but the Primae looks like a better choice all around.

I am going to go slap a bumper sticker on the arse-end of my Hurricane.

As much as I enjoy collecting unique ships, they're just useless icons in a hangar to me if they can't be replaced.

interesting design /concept art.wonder how many different designs they were working with before they finalized this one.would like to see the remainder of them some day in the EON magazine.not into PI but will find a use for it in my mining operations.any chance we can get nav thrusters to use on all the EVE ships.

I don't care if it is a bonus to tractors or salvagers. Either would be great.

Specs?!!

Edit: Am I the only one who sees a resemblance to the Firefly class ship Serenity?


Nope, that was my first thought. Someone at ccp has been watching firefly methinks..
As for the ship being unreproducible I would say that it will be a permament addition to the ORE fleet due to the fact that they said they're giving out one ship to try out to each capsuleer.
To me that sounds as if they're either going to keep them as a stocked item or there will be better versions of it.

This is a beautiful ship, CCP. Thank you.

As a W-space resident, mine will unfortunately sit rusting in an out of the way highsec station for a future time when it will be worth the risk to fly them, or worth the money to sell them. Same as my Zephyrs. It doesn't make me any less grateful for them, but it does limit their usefulness.

My choice seems to be this: Use it, lose it and go back to using my Hoarder for PI, or keep using my Hoarder for PI and have a nice asset accruing value. I'm sure the pirates are clever enough to sit off a Customs Office in a disposable gank ship and wait.

I'd hate to see the hard work of the designers go to waste (especially, let's be honest, when there was an opportunity cost to the effort they spent on this), and I agree that the backstory for this ship doesn't make sense as a one-off. I'm sure you can think of a way to get this hull (and the Zephyr for that matter) into the general production, even in a modified form to protect the uniqueness of the originals.

I hope the blogs wording was correct in inferring that there would be more of this ship to come, but it would be nice if the ship being given out had some notable difference from those later produced.

Why do people complain about ccp birthday present being given to us? I mean how many people give away presents on thier birthday?

On a side note would love to see an 'upgraded' version avaiable though loyalty store possibly in the future.

Also quick question does ccp have a gallery of all the ships concepts they've released, I mean I know I could possibly go though all the dev blogs to go and find them all but if they're conveiently in one location I would be happy to use it to study formation and lighting values with.

I'm surprised nobody drew a comparison between this ship and an Earth Omega-class destroyer from Babylon 5. Either way, cool looking ship. Please CCP, make it replaceable?

What a shame, such amazing artwork that probably took a lot of time and effort to come up with, model, and code into the game and it's going to rust away in my hanger and will never be used. ugh

I hope CCP will reuse this model again for an ORE class salvage ship thatís obtainable through seeded BP's either through the market or random drop from complexes/LP's. One can only hope for a dedicated salvage ship!

Throw us a bone CCP, ppplllease... with a cherry on top? Very Happy

Absolutely freakin awesome CCP, love it already. By the look of it it will be somewhat the same size of a hauler and hopefully have a big enough cargo capacity to see it piloted everyday. But due to its uniqueness it should be some how replaceable cause it looks to nice to be ganked in!!

But WOW nice work.........im already one for drooling ;)

also want the original salvage ship ORE used to make this. :P

it's funny that collecting your reward ( looting/salvaging ) actually feels more like a punishment.

if you type "primae" in any channel and link it to a item, the resulting link directs to a BPO info window
perhaps they will release the BPO in the future :)

Cool ship, but one question: How long until the chron detailing how the Serps have loaded this one down with spy equipment to better raid our colonies?

How about using this new ship model for a salvager ship? Cool Just give it some new textures and attributes and you are set.
