Agreed, there're quite a few odd ships in EVE, but i like pretty much all of them (even scorp, though a second wing would be nice) except the moa which is just really wtf omfg fugly. Considering the Tech3 ship agenda, it cannot take too much recources to redo a single ship - and i cannot believe someone would *not* agree.
On the other hands, if theconcept artist from the moa is still around, he's proabably a bit ****ed, but then again - sometimes you have to admit a(n epic) fail(ure) Laughing

Leave my Moa hull alone.

There is at most a handful of caldari ships that don't look ugly...

The list:
Caldari Shuttle
Badger models
Condor models
Ferox Models (sorta)
Rokh

LIAR!!! Kidding of course, you are very much entitled to like it.
IMHO the paintjob on the Onyx makes it look acceptable, but I find the Eagle and the Moa ugly.

A general redesign would be too much, but a "geometric tweak" (shifting a few polygon vertecies) could make it look less fat.

I flew the Moa in my early days. I found the hull to be such an eyesore that I swore to never fly any ship using that hull again. I'll rather fly Minmatar.

And yet, I do not want it changed in any way. Some ship has to be the ugliest ship in EvE, the Moa is perfect for it. It gives the Raven pilots a small consolation, knowing that their moneymakers aren't the ugliest ships in the game.

In the "cool Caldari ships" category, I nominate the Cormorant.

Are you guys using premium? I actually like most of the caldari ships in it, but in classic, I hate them. The moa is an exception to that though...

Moa looks great. Sure it doesn't look traditional, but compared to formless Gallente blobs (Dominix and Vexor hulls) some Caldari hard edges are certainly preferable in my opinion. The only complaint I have with ship design is that some ships and stations are not quite structurally sound (as in ships having double hulls joined only at the other end etc.) but otherwise it is bearable that someone tries something different opposed to "our ships are airplanes in space" or "our ships are flying bricks".

Perhaps add some more antennae and blinky lights!

I think one of the best looking ships is the Rokh which is a brick in space......

I think this is the first thing that hit me about Eve, most of the ships look like a piece of screwed up paper (Amarr not included and a few other exceptions) I think they are different but that doesnt make them good it just makes them different. This is similair to the mistaken belief that that makes something good! I am so glad about T3 maybe I might be able to make something decent.

If CCP are really trying to steal some more of the market sexy ships should be there number 1 priority!

So, you want the design team to spend time changing the look of a ship beacuse YOU don't like the way it looks...

There is not one ugly Caldari ship in EVE. They all are great looking and none of them need changed.

The Ferox by the way is they single greatest hull in EVE. It screams badass spaceship, and when it is painted black it is the very definition of war machine.

I mentioned this before but I really think that we should be able to paint our ships, be given a choice of emblems or decals and choose skins. this would make ships more unique currently the only customization of the base ships is the ability to set a name.

You know; forget the re-do - I just want an answer from the devs on what exactly they were thinking.
No, I'm serious, I really want to know what kind of messed up thought process they went through to arrive at "this model is a good idea and doesn't look like someone vomited on the blueprint"

... However I do wholeheartedly agree with the above poster ^ that the ferox is one of the most badass looking ships I've ever seen :D

The only thing that really annoys me about the Caldari ships are those crane necks on most of them. If those could be retracted to a more condensed structure, I'd be happy with them all. Smile

To show what I mean I modified a Moa a little:

Moa as you know it with a long neck.
Moa modified for a short neck.

It's a quick work, so bear with me.

Well I think the Moa looks unique, while for me ships like the Rokh and Drake are rather boring.
If you don't like it, there are so many other ships to choose.
And if you don't like most Caldari ships, why did you even pick that race in the first place? I mean, it's not exactly hard to get some pictures of all the designs in EVE Neutral
