Look at the other ones too, they all got that hideous yellow on some parts. *shudders* and the machinaw looks more like a bloodraider ship now

Yuck. I saw that on Sisi a couple of months ago and thought it was a bug. Guess not.

Golden Retrievers.. huh..

It's just CCP's way of telling miners exactly what they think of them.. a bunch of overly loyal, gentle, half-wit drooling *****es.

I wouldn't really call it golden, it more resembles a school bus to me. I am not impressed with the change. Thank god I don't mine. The word fugly comes to mind.

The true purpose of this is to make people move to a hulk even faster....

Like the Dev in the red T shirt said in the promo video, 'Anything I can do to **** your day off is fine by me". Maybe he has been given a copy of Paint4 or something for his iPad...

The Golden Retriever has to be a CCP in-joke. Digging the Hulk though.

Had all the same thoughts as you:

- Texture bug
- Must be a joke because of the 'dog-pun'. (But then again, what about the reddish Mackinaw?)
- Coercing medium-skilled miners into quickly getting a Hulk.

But I also agree that it's more a crappy MS Paint job than a real golden look. (BTW THAT would be awesome - a ship that actually looks like pure gold! Or chrome look like the ship in Star Wars Ep 1.)

One really has to wonder... it takes CCP 7 years to add anti aliasing to the game (to name one of the less ridiculous examples for dev progress), but they rather play around with mining barge textures instead of doing the much less pointless and also highly requested change of giving mining lasers crystal-dependant colors.

And the test realm people didn't give adequate feedback about that?

By the way, all barges and exhumers (even in the market, not used by you) say "Gallente". Dependent on the char you use? Shouldn't it be "ORE"? Like "ORE Retriever"?

Maybe they could put some spinners on the side to totally bling it out. Laughing

I now noticed that when I disable depth effects in the graphics menu, the small item pics for the barges are back to normal.

ORE is a Gallentean company, hence why it says "Gallente Industrial Ship"

Hm, didn't realize that. I thought ORE was a kind of balanced cooperation of all factions.

SUPPLEMENT: ingame text: "Outer Ring Excavations, or ORE, is the largest independent mining corporation around. ORE was originally a fledgling Gallentean company, but struck gold when they found extremely rich Nocxium asteroid belts in the Outer Ring region. When the Gallente Federation tried to force ORE to reveal the location of the asteroid fields the company left Gallentean space and set up base in the Outer Ring region. They used their massive wealth to buy protection for their bases and keep their operation secret. Several pirate factions have tried to muscle in on the ORE territories, but with little success."

What? WoW-phobia? Wink
Do you really think the whole EVE world runs on one server? Well, OK, maybe if you see "server" as the software app. But since Tranquility and Singularity are two different virtual worlds and nothing more, it's accurate to call them realms.
I mean, it's not like Linux has no windows, if you get the analogy. Wink
