Ok, beauty is in the eye of the beholder but aren't the Gallente suppose to the race with some level of artistic taste?

Brutix, Domi, Moros - ugly, uglier, ugliest

Or is that the price we must pay for superior engineering??

Guess I just like the Gallente designs. Well ok, Brutix and Domi could maybe use an upgrade but I have always liked the Moros.

We call it modern art. You don't have to understand it, but you do have to pay a lot of money for it.

Now now...

What's wrong with the cancerous growths? And the Quasimodo hunchback look?

I mean... not everything can be all symmetrical and shiny like the Amarr.
Or square and angled like the Caldari LEGOs.
Or... umm... Minmatar... yeah?

The Dominix is brutishly ugly. It's also a decently powerful battleship. I think it is an inspiring design.

I don't see anything wrong with Gallente designs, apart from the Iteron V which looks like it should snap in half if you sneezed on it.

dude all eve ships that are orriganal design are ugly its only the later designs that have improved.

i do agree they are ugly tho but i think most galente ships are much nicer than minmitar or caldari.

if you ask me the artist of fighters needs to redesign eve from scrach. fighters are by far more attractive than 99% of its race ships except minmitar fighter is gay

One of the best features of this game is its sense of design. The four races are quite distinct, and have their own design principles. Personally, I love the ship designs in this game, especially Gallente, all of whom have this rounded, organic feel.

Spaceships shouldn't all be sleek and symmetrical, as this seriously limits the amount of designs that can be done. What some people want is to fly an X-Wing, but this simply can't be done because of copyright, and there are only so many times you can design similar ships before they start to infringe. Frankly, if every ship looked 'cool', it would get stale very quickly.

George Lucas took the same approach with his designs for Star Wars. What is now iconic started off as weird and bizarre looking. The Milleneum Falcon is an 'ugly, assymetrical' ship, as is Slave I, and these are both ships that have become iconic. Even the TIE fighter is a bizarre design.

Look at the designs that George Lucas and his team came up with, and look at the designs in EVE, and tell me that they do not show the same level of imagination and individuality. To me, this is far more important than trying to be something else. Trying to look cool is always a fail in my book. You become cool by showing individual style, not by copying others.

galente ships are the best looking(thats why i first trained for them like 3 years ago)

check minmatar(they pray for the ships to stay together...and look unfinished) or caldari(they have like 3-4 ships that look ok...rest are just boxes)

amarr ships will always be the best looking ships in eve. Just like the osprey will forever be the most pig-ugly ship in the entire game.

I agree with both sides of this thread, although i do kinda wish one of my fave ships in the game (domi) didnt look so damn hideous as i spend alot of time looking at its hideous bloated rear.

Maybe one day we will get a new revision of it like when they release a new ford escort, similar ship just looks different.

then people can choose which model they preferr.

The designs are good. What I would like though would be a redo of the textures.

Seriously, what the ****? The textures on the front of the Dominix are all over the shop, they don't match or connect, you can see seams where the texturing stops and starts again. Especially the Lachesis/Arazu, those should have been done in a sleek metallic cover, like the Exequror. What the hell CCP?

Gallente ships are the best in design ( except domi ) brutix especcialy.

The thing that concerns me more is that most of big ships dont give the idea they are BIG. Yeah the random mini lights should give the impression they are, but when you think about it and look at some models, they look reather ridiculous. The impression of big should be in something else, as mentioned, try to look on simple starwars design of their ships. If you look on imperial cruiser, stardestroyer or so, you will immidiately have the impresion the ship is huge ( not only because of its city-like surface

I can't agree more. FIX THIS ASAP! We want the old model back. I had to train Amarr Frig V just to stop looking at that lump of crap that you guys made into a Helios.

Went digging through some old SS's and found this gem. It is now proudly displayed on my desktop. You really need to view the full size pic to get an appreciation of this ship.
