Should CCP make a class of exploration ships, using the Zephyr hull?

If they used something like a Zephyr, then there would have to be a new class of exploration site.

One of the problems with exploration is that is still requires a combat vessel. If they had exploration that was more centered around sneaking here and there and avoiding fights (with both NPCs and other players), solving clues and uncovering mysteries, then it would be possible to do it in a less combat-capable ship.


Nova Fox has worked very hard in designing some good potential exploration ships in the F&I forum. Lend some support there.

My ships are alot different from the current functions in game, a tech 3 subsystem variant of it acutally barrows the intaki designs of the zephyr.

Unlike covert ops the ships are non combat and are slow in warp and cannot fit a cloaker.
In return they probe and beacon very well and have improved functions with the new analyzers for digging up and data mining new sites they are able to find better than other ships.

Im busy at work making them work overall to rival industrial miners in terms of occupation use and products. In which exploration and archealogy along with science gets a nice face lift in hopes of creating a new profession out in the field to get shot at.

Between getting this art contest done in time.

If you are interested click the link I got in my signature, it currently more than enough posts to at least hopefully drive the direction of my objectives and goals of making said ships useful. Do wear a hardhat and mind the construction.

We are sorry for displeasing his royal majesty and will strive to do things more perfectly to his advantage.
