The “Create A Starship” contest has returned and you have the final vote. Submissions will be accepted at the official contest page through December 21, 2010 and voting will start on December 22, 2010 and end on January 8, 2010.

Players will be competing for cash, one-year subscription to EVE Online, and various other prizes. For full details of The Final Vote click here.

FAQ

Will the winner of this contest automatically be included in the game?

No. Due to a packed production schedule of ships and other art next year we cannot guarantee the winner goes in before 2012. Seriously, the art schedule is packed. However the CCP Art team reserves the right to change their mind and find room to allow a truly gorgeous piece in.

Why are you having another contest, but not including the winner in the game?
Our fans have said they want to vote on a larger group of ships, we’d like to accommodate those fans. We’d also like to recognize and reward the awesome efforts of creators who make new ships designs. Yes there is a secret prize for all semi-finalists. No we won’t tell you what is.

How will I vote on the semi-finalists after the 21st?
The Facebook “Like” button will be the vote mechanism.

“CCP will prejudge entrants to semi-final round…,” what does that mean?
CCP will be filtering out many entrants that don’t have color renders and orthogonal views. We’ll also be policing illustrations to the idea of fitting the EVE universe. Your line drawing of the “Fett Mach Seven”, while kewl, is not we want to represent the EVE universe with. Sorry.

edit: hey since your not DA and can actually talk to the community, can you ONCE AND FOR ALL clarify what is meant by uncolored line work?

are 3d models rendered in line view for the 6 views ok?
Is having darkened areas to show depth ok?

Please tell us, please!

edit: example 1
myship

In the front view there are areas where it is darker to show it's deep, is this ok?

caldari battleship

This ship was loved by a lot of fans, are the 6 views ok? Or does it (as I suspect) not follow the rules?

wonderfulship but colored

and this one, I'm guessing it would not qualify?

I am liking this part especially! I was sad to see you didn't do more models for Incursion after the scorp remodel, good to know you are still doing things! CCP are so winning lately, what an awesome part-expansion, learning skills soon, with more content still to come! I dearly <3 this game.

Congratulations on making your own contest, entirely independent of dA. There were a lot of great entries on their website, but I don´t want to know what their wannabe-intellectual-artist judges were smoking.

Who gives a crap about designing a ship that won't be used in-game?

Considering that most existing ships in Eve look like they were designed by a ******ed rhesus monkey, I don't really see why we should expect anything different to win; CCP will just "prejudge" out anything that doesn't look equally absurd.

I think we should just re design the raven like we did with the scorpion its starting to show its age now but should make a viable caldari PVP ship

Two questions:


1) As someone else said, please clarify what is required for the six views. Is subtle shading (but not full color) to emphasize shapes allowed? Are plain grayscale renders of a 3d model allowed (and if not, please consider changing your mind and allowing them)? This was a major point of confusion with the deviantart contest.



2) How will the voting be handled for this contest? Specifically what will be done to prevent abuse of the system? For example, creating multiple accounts to vote on the contest, getting all of your non-EVE-playing friends to vote for your entry, etc. Or, less dishonestly, turning the contest into a popularity contest where the most important part of winning is running a proper publicity campaign on the forums (and of course finishing early enough to do this ASAP), alliance leaders ordering their entire alliance to vote for the leader's submission, etc?


Since the facebook "like" button will be used (a system that is easily open to abuse), these are not exactly minor concerns.

I must say, I am pleasantly shocked and pleased that CCP actually responded to our outcry at the Deviantart contest failing.

This is wondrous news indeed...it means CCP actually took our petitions seriously in the manner. Meaning that the community does infact have a say in matters. Thanks CCP!!

I am very happy to see this contest done anew and I am very happy that the whole thing will be hosted by CCP and CCP alone this time. Way to go! Brilliant!

Does this mean that it is guaranteed for 2012 sometime, or is it just maybe 2012? The entrants would no doubt be satisfied if it was guaranteed to happen at some point (with a rough estimate of when), even if it's not soon.

That's my point! it can't be submitted if it doesn't follow the rules :P

But it's not really clear. well I thought it was clear, so I did mine with line work.

but then over 805 of the submissions were models

(modeling is easier I would of done it that way >.<)

so just a quick rules clarification would be nice.

Love that Caldari BS you've got there! That would definitely get my vote. The Caldari desperately need an awesome looking ship and that one fits the bill perfectly!

Awsome! I wasn't too thrilled at the outcome of the Deviant art contest.

No.



Oh... Well, that's understandable. You seem to indicate that it will be eventually, though, so that's cool.

So...is this separate from the previous contest, or a continuation of it?

I love the idea of a wholly EVE Online ship design contest. But I'm left wondering if the Tornado, which was an amazing design and deserved its legitimate victory in the previous contest, will see the light of day in game. (Or rather, see the black of space.)

Hm. While I understood the FAQ fine and fully intend to participate, it would seem that others were not so understanding.

Perhaps more clarity is in order? Particularly concerning the use of Facebook's "Like" button.

It seems pretty straightforward. If you want to vote on the new ship, you have to use Facebook. This is an advertising campaign, as most contests are. Doesn't make a lot of sense to advertise just to EVE players does it?

Fantastic! Honestly that debacle at DA didn't do many people justice. Pretty sure I was disqualified because of the shaded views.

Almost done my shippie too :)
