Not a new topic I Know.
But I am so sad to see all these ships ridiculously ugly.
It is very sad when we see the beautiful ships that were in the final of the starships contest.

Why not picking in these contest to relook al the ugly ships???
The Apocalypse for example is so ugly that I never bought one. I am about to up Caldari ships to buy a Golem Marauder because I will never get in a Paladin.

I think preferences on ships is a personal thing, as I don't think some of the ships you are complaining about are that bad, while ones other people like I don't.

I would also like to point out that its highly unlikely that current ship designs will be changed, as they have been around long enough for some people to get attached to them, no mater how much some people complain.

I mean come on the Apocalypse is a ship that is almost instantly recognizable to any eve pilot and you want to take that away?

+1 all the way. If someone was to make a space ship game using ships from that contest eve would be in trouble.

Just had to buy a faction ship for the wife because she liked the colour.
I explained that she had no gunnery skills so it would be useless'
Not a good enough reason for her. The colour is the most important thing when buying a ship. Ask any woman.

Completely disagree.

I don't believe the deviant art contestant pictures are any more awesome than what we already have. Several of the ships do a terrible job of emulating the racial design of ships.

Also, there are many awesome ships in EVE already. Nearly all Minmatar and Gallente ships, many of the Amarr and even some of the Caldari ships are all terrific.

I think you must be confusing your personal aesthetic sense with universal truth.

agreed with OP. EVE has some of the ugliest ships ever to sail in a video game.

i could double the number of EVE subscribers overnight with a few weeks of design time, a small budget, and the artwork of a 10 year old.

The problem isn't the design, it's the staggered tech level of the ship rendering.

The scorp noctis echelon are on a whole other level and rendered in a totally different style (artistically not technically... But maybe technically too)

Ships like the Mack domi apoc all look blurry pixilated and FLAT compared to these new incredibly detailed designs.

Last edit... Damn smart phone

EVE is not only supposed to be a dark, harsh and cruel place but also an ugly and asymmetrical place ..

The Scorp, Noctis and Echelon are all done with the newer graphics that CCP announced we will eventually see all ships redone in.

Personally I hope the "present" that we are getting on EVE's 8th birthday is another ship (or group of ships) redone in this way.

I concur. Minmatar ships are beautiful in their harsh junkheap look. They are supposed to feel industrial and harsh. I find the Maelstrom, Loki and even the Thrasher to some extent to be "ugly" because they break away from that a bit too much. They are too polished.

That's true, it must be people who like these ugly things.
Well make new ships for all the factions!
I do not need ships more powerful but new design and why not new options.

There are tons of good looking ships in eve. Unfortunatly they don't perform. A good example would be the Caldari hybrid ship line.

All those look horrible. Except the Mon Calamari Cruiser.

Star Trek has some of the worst spaceship designs ever made.
