This is a suggestion for what would be possibly a lot of work, but I feel would be very well received within the community. The suggestion is this.

1. First off, all the pirate ships that are missing unique models should be given them. Ditch the reskins, and make them their own hulls.

2. Replace the generic stations in pirate space with unique pirate stations. This could be as simple as one pirate station for each race, or as complex as each type of station having its own hull.

3. For each major trade hub, and Corporation, and factional headquarters, create a unique station, like the Roden Centre.

It'd be a lot of work, but it'd be amazing when done, it would really give people some real reasons to go sightseeing, provide some real landmarks to visit.

Naturally the only time the Sansha bandwagon with an Angel is when they stand to benefit as well.

Edit: :) comical smile added

I would think it be quite easy to convert some of the existing Battlestations into pirate stations (if war installations that imitate existing stations are any indication).

In general, more love is needed for the pirate factions for alot of things, mechanic and cosmetic alike.

I'd love it if the stations (empire, and pirate alike) would have their own flavor too for their enviroment.

This kind of polish would add a great bit of flair to the ailing pirate factions, yeah.

some of the LCO stations in missions would make for epic pirate stations, for example the one with the two snakes coiled all the way to the top in worlds collide.

Too much of eve is generic, exploring space just isnt as exciting as it could be if the same models were not used over and over again.

There was another thread asking for the same thing a while back, and I believe the OP in that post showed that CCP already has unique station models for pirates which aren't being used in the game. It'd be nice to see them pop up.

as much as the workload would increase for this, augmenting current station would also be a good thing, and by augmenting i mean the physical models not just the paintwork.

Yes to eye-candy.

Considering the amount of work involved however, it shouldn't be a priority right now. As a workaround, CCP may want to consider more art contests like the one on dA recently, but for specific, not generic ships. Many of the submissions to the contest were epic, and if the incentive is "If I win, my model is gonna be the new Bhaalgorn!" rather than "My ships is gonna be some random thing implemented at some point in the future and probably with the utility of a Zephyr", I'm quite certain more people will put larger amounts of work into it.

yikes... i wouldnt touch on the eve DA contest... that was quite a can of worms in the end.. a lot of unhappy people.. tho i did very much like the winning ship... bt art contests would be awesome! im sure theres quite a few eve enthusiasts that are capable 3D artists (plus ive a few i didnt submit) n get it judged by the eve community this time rather than a non associated pannel of Deviant Art peeps.

Should have clarified that - art contests, but not with dA. That was fail.

dA or a similar outfit wouldnt be needed to advertise something like this - the EVE community and mouth-to-mouth propaganda would be all thats necessary for this to spawn whats needed - a shiny new model and valuable addition to the game with less effort for CCP and, if selected by the community, less chance of getting reactions along the lines of "eww".
