So I take it we are allowed to re-submit entries which were already submitted to the dA contest, right?

The rules dont say it has to have been created for this contest, or that you created it, or anything. So I would suggest grabbing the one you liked best from the DA contest and submitting it. GL.

Mine are the same way:

Republic Fleet Stalker

Last time I asked the DA team specifically that question- Was the minor shading I did to indicate depth going to get me disqualified or not?

They said no, and I was not disqualified... I'm thinking (Even though it was the DA team who told me this) this fact will remain the same. We're probably okay. Would be good to have confirmation though.

Oh ****, hey Mothermoon, you're the one who asked me to critique your Minmatar ship, haha. Nice to see you back in the contest, too.

Yay new starship contest!

And to vote I go...oh.

Nope, not participating.

Edit: It's nice that CCP wants to promote Eve outside of normal circles (gaming websites, MMO websites, etc.) Just don't pretend that a 'contest' designed for such purpose is something that you're doing 'for the players'. Call it a promotion, fine. Don't lie (by obfuscation) and claim that one thing is something else when, in fact, it's not. Part of the burn of the DA contest was due to this.

2nd edit: Spelling, grammar.

according to section (4.b.):

"...(ii) must be the exclusive original work of the entrant and made for the Contest"

tho, would be nice to have confirmation on that.

also, what extent of shinny is required for 7th view? flat, shaded, texture, or full out?

I have a request for the CCP art team. Since you decided go with an outside site for the voting, propably because letting non-EVE players vote on the finalists worked so well the first time. Sad Well anyway, since you prescreen the proposals before facebook users get to dictate what EVE players might fly in the future, FFS disqualify all designs you feel are not good fits for EVE. As in, they have no chance of winning even if they get voted to the finals.

The reason being, that actual EVE players will propably be the minority voters in facebook, so don't let anything in to the semifinals, that you aren't already willing to put in EVE. Most voters aren't EVE players and won't give a crap about voting for fitting designs, so you will need to eliminate them in the first screening. That means disqualify with extreme prejudice all non-EVE designs, joke ships and technically poorly designed ships. The absolute bottom end of the semifinalists should be average looking designs, that would still fit the EVE universe just fine with minor tweaks. This leaves loads of room for taste, but removes the chance of having a similar fiasco with the designs as we had last time.

Good luck to everyone taking part in the competition. Very Happy

I realy like you guys work about Caldary BS and agree that you need something more "dynamic" than actual but please:

DO SOMETHING for gallente "save the wales" design like because...

-you take a mega or hyperion they look fine, i mean it's ok they look like space ships, the nyx is just the most beautifull ship in the game, the only real space ship design in my "pint" of view.

Get some rain dance out here guys and beg that gallente race gets some re-design or new ship that looks like one (sorry design team for this ease agression but realy you guys shoud stop with the wales style Laughing )

This was one of the better entries of the 'epic fail' contest. I'm gonna be hard pressed to top that as i finally have the time to actually make my own dream ship a reality.

I'm thinking my T3 battleship i'm inspired in this case by the SR-2 (NO IT WILL NOT BE A CLONE) But its sleek insanely smooth lines make that ship a piece of art. It'll fit nicely with the gallente.

I have a few other ideas but that's the one i'm going to be focusing on. Thank you CCP incursion is looking to be your best roll out of an expansion to date and this is only further upping the bar. I only hope my own final designs can compete with what will be an intense field.

Yes! Finally. A chance for Eve players to have their say!

sign up for facebook. Vote. destroy existance of the account.

CCP is trolling entries for those who do not fit in the universe. It'll be better than the dA contest.

So this is supposed to be a contest in which EVE population gets to vote on what suits them best but the voting mechanism is using Facebook? No connection to our EVE characters or accounts? SERIOUSLY??

Maybe in 2011 you could make it mandatory to have a Facebook and Twitter account to play the game, that would be lovely...

CCP you still haven't learned anything. You have these great ideas but you always cripple them with some idiotic decision along the way, why do you do this to yourselves and US is beyond me.

Khan,
I think they are planning on doing it from the EVE site. Im a web designer and can tell you putting the Facebook like button onto a webpage is easy and free. I dont think you must have a facebook to vote.

I've got to say, using a Facebook "like" button to vote seems mighty odd to me too. Some other way would be better.

Please!?!

Even if this is done from the web site, from what I understand clicking on the Facebook "like" button on another website requires the Facebook platform application to be enabled on the voter's account for it to work. If that is the case, then I won't be able to vote at all because I refuse to turn that on for security & privacy reasons.

Ok, so forgive me for asking what is likely a completely ******ed question. I'm really tired and starting to get sick, so my reading comprehension is probably a bit on the low side right now...

Does this contest supersede the (disaster) DA contest? Or is this a contest in addition to and irrespective of the DA contest? Is the Tornado still in? Is it up again? See I'm confused.

My thought upon reading this was that the Tornado won the DA contest, is in as that winner (whenever you all can get to it), and that this is a new thing (but likely having many of the old but great DA entries that got screwed) and we get to vote this time. Do I have this right? As I said up front, sorry if this is a completely wasted question due to my fail at reading comprehension.

Oh, I should say... I'm not an artist, can't even draw a crooked line, but I paid close attention to the DA contest and general uproar over the results. Tornado was nice, and I liked some of the other DA semi-finalists, but I felt the majority of them missed the mark of being suitable for EVE. I did see a large number of excellent designs (I really liked that Aquilon gallente ship...) that didn't make the semi cut. If this is an opportunity for those excellent submissions to receive a second chance, great job CCP. No really, we the players have a better eye for what belongs in EVE than those DA fools. And to all the artists, I mean, I'm in awe since I can't draw. I'm really pleased you all will have another go at this.

The latter. It's going to have its own implications. It will not unfortunately supercede the dA contest.

No you have it right that's exactly how this will happen. Even better. People can redo or refine their designs further.

That's exactly what's happening and thank you. I was disappointed then relieved i hadnt entered the first. Now i have a chance to show what I can do. I'm looking forward to the challenge.

I appreciate the reply Konoch. I'm glad my fuzzy brain apparently DID understand what my eyes took in. I had a moment of "hang on, is CCP just undoing the DA contest or is this an extension or... damn, my head hurts."

You and all the other artists have my support. I am seriously the least talented artist on the planet. You need advanced math done? I'm your guy. Need a drawing? Just shoot me. My family has absolutely zero artistic talent. I grew up hearing "can't even draw a crooked line" from my mother. I did like crayons, but more because they were pointy and colorful.

Ok, so silly joking aside, I really am pleased you artists get a second (and I'm thinking much better) shot at this. While I may not be able to draw to save my life, I can tell a nice looking EVE-type ship apart from something that should not be in EVE. It would be my guess (and maybe I'm full of crap) that as this one is being run much more directly by CCP, that the pool of submissions will be much more directly related to EVE as compared to some of what we saw at DA from the DA-only folks who saw "contest" and yet had no clue what EVE is.

As a result, I'd bet that since we the playerbase get a vote, things will be much smoother come winner time. Good luck to you and everyone else.

I get the impression we won't be able to do so till they have all the submissions in and locked. I think its a good idea on CCP's part (if thats the case)... I'm happy they didn't "forget" about the additional contest they said they were going to do (since the DA mega stuff up) - quite surprised by it - gotten so lazy, better go back to working on the Lammergeier Battleship a little bit more (mostly background stuff.. but I'll probably get stuck into the 7th view again)..

This time I might try doing a redesign of the Raven? .. or maybe a more industrial looking ORE mining ship? (all the mining ships looks too alike :S)

Happy days again Very Happy

when i see some of the designs of these ships, the understanding of spaceflight dynamics that i have yells out " YOUR DOING IT WRONG" ships must be centrally balanced, or compensated by thrust, half the ships in eve would either subtly fly in a curve rather then straight, or curve around rapidly and lose the plot.


but then my awesome detector goes "OMG INTERNET SPACESHIPS!!!1!"

Love that Caldari BS you've got there! That would definitely get my vote. The Caldari desperately need an awesome looking ship and that one fits the bill perfectly!

This would be a nice re-vamp of the raven imo...
