Could you take it back and replace it with something like the itty v hull and tint it differently like the free gallente shuttle? This ship is so breathtakingly beautiful it simply tears my soul apart knowing that it was wasted on this free pi ship. Then after you do that re-issue it as the dedicated ORE salvager we have all been wanting for ages.Smile

Yours truely,

I like the look of this hull, but its relatively useless.
reasons:
Its a giant gank target.
There are no BPCs of them
It can't haul very many planetary materials (Bad for say, people who do anywhere other than highsec)
An itty 4 can haul... 6 times the materials or 6 times the command centers... unfitted.

could we please have this made an actual production ship? It makes me sad that it isnt, it looks really nice!

The point of curio like this is to be a rarity even if not particularly functional. As people lose it, just like any other unique ship, its value will increase. The first part of this is to push people into PI, but after that it's just for novelty.

Its the most beautiful, useless ship ever. I pray that you replace the hull model or at least introduce it in another ship type, i would LOVE to be able to use this for transporting, trading, salvaging, even hauling my datacores from low sec.....

So upset :( ....but i love it

EDIT: also, whoever designed this model... pay them more!

yeah I agree. Its a shame that such a beautiful hull is wasted on a rather useless hanger spin ship.

CCP, please make a new "ORE" variant of this ship! (called the secundi!!?)
Have this ship have a bigger commodity / command center / cargo hold. Maybe some mid and high slots for salvage and tank work.

Please ccp, please oh please :)

I like the Primea, even though I haven't reached the ability to do plantary mining yet.

It'll be a collector's item for sure. I am not ever gonna drive that thing out of spacedock because it will get shot at.

Seconding everyone - great work from the (new?) ship art design team. Please put them to work on useful ships.

I was under the impression that lorewise, its a prototype being issued to us. So CCP may see fit to tag that model onto another ORE ship class in the future. (I hope I hope...)

Is this an active petition for reuse of the hull or is there one?

The ship is too pretty to be a one time only limited edition hull. Leaving it as one is criminal.

"Initially devised as a deep space salvage vessel for large-scale ore retrieval from destroyed ORE fleets in pirate-occupied areas"

A salvage vessel (that can't fit salvagers), to do large scale ore retrieval (with extremely limited cargo space) from destroyed ORE fleets (most likely ORE mining barges/exhumers, the majority of which can not only out-haul this ship, they can out-tank it as well).

Suggestions:
a) Fit specialized salvagers (in the same manner as the Iris Probe Launchers on the Zephyr).
b) Increase the cargo capacity
1) Double the size of the Command Center Hold so you can at least carry 2 Elite Command
Centers at a time.
2) Increase the Planetary Commodities Hold to 10,000 m3 (the maximum capacity of a Launchpad).
c) Reduce the Cargo Bay by 50% (to 50 m3), and add a 50 m3 Drone Bay. At least then you'd have
some ability to defend yourself.
d) Add bonuses to the Planet Management skills (i.e. +1 ly to your Remote Sensing range, +5% to
the resolution of resource data for each level of Planetology, and maybe a 5% reduction in
Surveying time per level of Advanced Planetology, or the other way around).
e) Rig Slots, which would make this ship much more useful as a hauler/salvager.

An unmodified Badger holds 4,125 m3. This ship, with 4 T2 expanders, has a max capacity of 2,864.3 (about 30% less in total), but of course, 2,600 m3 of that is in specialized cargo, making the lowest level Industrial far more versatile.

While it's nice to have free gifts, this is like the pair of socks you get from your grandmother on your birthday, soon to be stashed in the back of the drawer and rarely ever seen again.

Increasing the functionality of the ship would help ensure it actually gets used for the purpose intended.

(ps) In keeping with the game storyline, the following statement: "And, now that full production of this robust vessel is underway, I can safely announce that our agents will be delivering one Primae ship to each capsuleer in all corners of the universe, free-of-charge, to try out for themselves." would lead me to assume that there must be BPOs/BPCs.
The "free-of-charge, to try out for themselves" part would have me believe that these will be available in the future (for a price) should the capsuleers try them and like them and want more of them.

(pss) It also appears that the above statement is incorrect, in that it was 1 ship per account, not per capsuleer. My alts are separate capsuleers from my main(s), in different locations for different purposes, and they would like their new ship as well ! Smile

Given that you can already buy these ships for 25m each in Jita means the no BPO argument doesn't hold up. You can easily get a small stockpile of these, and the chances of having more tan one blown up (unless you're careless) are small enough, even over time.

If you want to use it, then use it.

It's interesting that there is a linkable blueprint for the Primae, where there is not one for the zephyr or other unique ships. Potential hint that it will be producible?
