Amarr - too little armor plating, especially in the front.. its also my opinion that the providence would make a better tier 3 battlship, and this could become a better freighter. But hey, providence looks like it could destroy a planet :|

With the Trinity upgrade the graphics should blow every other game away, when eve first came out it killed all the other MMOGs away.

Lets hope they can do it again.

well speaking of symmetry we haven't seen the caldari design, and the amarr, gallente, and minmatar designs are largely symmetric

saying that symmetry is pleasing to the eye is a little mislead, as it's based on attractiveness of a species... I can personally say that a crow looks good due to its asymmetry... if, however, I saw a chick with a really big left boob, but nothing on the other side I'd be a little worried and might walk swiftly the other way

the point is, symmetry has no place in architecture, which is what you're getting at the battleship scale... it is no longer a matter of form vs function, but rather a matter of making a ship look huge and powerful (in the case of battleships)

making the caldari BS have a completely lopsided design wouldn't make it ugly, it'd just make it look caldari, which is what we all probably want

so yes, symmetry is displeasing when it hints at genetic problems, but when it's part of design it can be quite sexy (think of a really big US military plane carrier and tell me it doesn't look menacing)

Litus, operating breasts away is a common practice in order to prevent breast cancer, although it's uncommon with younger people.

Also, it has been scientifically proven that symmetry is pleasing and attractive regardless of species or object. However, that is not to say that pleasing or attractive objects can't be assymmetrical. There's also a possibility that small assymmetrical attributes enhances the beauty of an object or person by shifting focus favourably. Etc etc.

As for the Gallente BShip, seriously. It needs some sort of big Y-shaped extensions in the front, or other wicked features so that it doesn't become the new dildo of EVE. At least something that makes you think of the pain it'd involve putting a model of it into any... orifice.
If it was made thin, with the front thinning off even more to make it more reminiscent of a dagger than a dildo, that'd work, too.


Minmatar ship looks like the rebel medical ship from Star Wars or something.

The Amarr ship's side plates should come together more in points, a'la Executioner. Otherwise it's really cool.

Mhmm really really nice. Think someone was looking at Roman warships and ships of the line for inspiration, when it comes to Minmatar and Amarr ships.

The Gallente with bridge in middle and overall shape reminds me of these Russian nuclear submarines... and yup, wonder what it'll look like from another angle.

But sucks Caldari ship isn't included there ;.;

Evil or Very MadWho the frac is CCP's new ships designer? Fire the frack, and get the old back!

Thees are all symmetrick, yor olde good genrick space ship designs.

My non existed 6 years old sister can do same after playing trought freespace 2.

I want Original, unsymetrick EVE ships!

Not this "seen it 2000 times" poo!

QFT, actually. I like the designs, but they need more assymetrical features, that's what I loved about the EVE ships in the beginning.

I was really hoping to see some cool ship designs for the Tier 3 BSs. Oh well, guess I'll hav to continue waiting. The Gallente BS looks particularly bad.

I want a Gal Tier3 BS to be sexier than the Mega, not uglier than the Domi. I'd fly a Dominix if it were sexy and sleek like the Vexor. But no, it has to look like an RV. An ugly RV at that.

obviesly you dont fly Minmatar very often.

Minmatars got
2 symmetrcal frigates from old designer
3 symetrical cruiser from old designer
zero symetrical BS's from old designer
1 symmetric destr and *gasp* 1 symetrical BC from new designer Rolling Eyes

Galentte got:
1 symetrical figate from old designer
Zero symetrical cruisers (no vexor is not symmetrical)
1 symetrical BS ..

so symmetry away!

ffs, the more I look at the Amarr one the more I want to start training Amarr...

(Also, it does have a certain drone-carrier look to it...)

The Amarr one looks like one of the 50ies/60ies futuristic swimming seatown designs.
The Minmatar one follows the design lines of the Thrasher and Cyclone, kinda mixed with Stabber and Phoon, but it is missing the oomph of the phoon's rocket drive design.

Shocked Day-um! It's times like this I wish I trained up Minmatar, i've fallen in love with that new Battleship. The Amarr one looks so cool too, makes me glad I specialize in Amarr. Twisted Evil

Posted - 2006.04.11 14:07:00 - [55]

Aesymetric designs actually make more sense and are more effecient than symetrical ones. what you really want is a small pod of any shape or design and then a long pole attached with thrusters to turn the ship around a central pivot. Furthermore terror is an effective weapon, and if you fleet looks badass as it warps in to battle your enemy might turn and run. I mean gallente do decend from the French right.

But flight characteristics are not all thats important. you ever wonder why engines are slung under the wing of passenger jets? Its not efficency for sure. It is better to have the engines above the wing for aerodynamic lift and aeroelastic twist on the wing structure. The engines are below the wing to reduce noise in the cabin and mainly to make servicing the planes easier.

Thats just my opinion, I only have an aerospace engineering degree and work for an aircraft manufacture. I could be wrong.

Nine times out of ten the concept art for a ship or ships is far more badass than the final ship model.

Just look at the concept for "Amarr Fighter", which seems to be the Executioner.

Actually no, that concept art is spot on for the Amarr Fighter.

The Minmatar one looks way to clean and smoth. they should add more edges, some pipes the typical rusty texture to it, then it is ready to go.

One thing I noticed about this Concept Art there is only one Caldari art there. Looks like someone else designs them. Unless CCP, had the artist not put them on their sight due to spoilage.

Anyways, the Amarr looks wicked cool. Now I wish the Executioner Line looked like the fighter concept but then what would the drones look like?

Gallente, just seems so odd compared to the rest of what I have seen of the Gallente ships.

Minmattar does not look pieced together enough. Needs more duct-tape and bubble gum maybe some bayling wire. Razz
