i think to make racin a bit fairer there should be a specialised racing ship. it should be customizable but only basic things like colour or if not then at least get the corps logo on the side. it shouldn't have any high slots but should have 8 med and low so players can expertiment with different setups and maybe special racing modules should be released.

Tell me what u think and i hope this interests the devs
THX

p.s. go to the features and ideas section for more info thxugh

this ship could also hav many other uses e.g. contraband runs so u could complete those agent offers with ease or even basic courier missions

you are mad.

8 mids 8 lows = Blockade running EWarfare ship.

OMG I cant believe you think this is a good idea

well if u read the other post that i have made u will find out that this will be the ship that will be given out month to a week before the race and then if they finish the race they can keep it if they don't finish but the ship survives then u will hav to give it back there will be another version to buy off the market and also u must remember that it will hav very limited cpu and cap so there should be specail racin modules like advanced mwds that can only be equip to the racin ship like the strip miners on the barges

I quite like the idea of a Type-R version of some of the ships, but 0/8/8 is a bit daft. just make them have no sheilds, hardly any armour, and not much structure, and about 5 lows, 1 med and no highs.

They would have ludicrous base speed and agility as no extra weight is used for sheild emiters or armour or anything else unecessary.

There could also be 2 versions, 1 that has NO warp drive whatsoever, thats restricted to just straight forward system races (transported using an indy), and one that has a warp drive (but is much heavier as a result).

if course ccp would have to enable us to build a track... Cool

yea i like that idea but the ship would hav such a low amount of cap and cpu i won't be able to use any kind of enhancers and of course the ship won't hav and shield and will hav very very limited armor and hull

That idea about a ship with no MWD is kinda tempting.

Now imagine a module that enables you to place "racing beacons" (think of modified probes which create a ring of eight bright glowing positional lamps in space when launched) and several teams wich haul in their overtuned racing ships.
The ship itself is highly maneuverable, has about 4 mid and low slots, nearly no armor and shield and plenty of speed. It takes about the same cargo space than a shuttle (5000m3) and has to be transportet to its destination by a hauler. The ships could come in various colors at first, or with slight hull modifications.

The only thing thats left to enable a real racing feeling would be some kind of counting system, that just registers every pilot that passes through a racing beacon, and voilá: you have your own customizable space race simulator in eve!
Add two more lines of code and you could even link the winner with the wallet of the organisator, so he gets prize money etc...

if only a Dev would ever read this...

Maybe there could be a military version of this racing ship too later on, which has no warpdrive but is very fast and has only one turret...would be nice for fun pos defense ;)

right lets overhaul this idea and sort it all out. There should be 2 different ones 1 with a warp drive and one without the one with will be a bit heavyer and so slower. they will both hav 5-6 med and low slots. the one with a warp drive will hav a shield of about 300 and the other won't hav a shield they will both hav about 300 armor and hull. and if u like i will setup race courses all over the universe in deepspace.

I think the WD version should be a Type-R version of the existing frigs, and the No WD version should be entirely new models (that are teh sex0r).

As for racing modules, there should be some kind of "tweak module" that alows you to change certain stats at the expense of others, to allow competitors to tweak their setups more that just "MWD + 4 Overdrives ftw".

This would add an enitrely new form of PvP, and also a non combative way for alliances to settle their differences Razz


As for the track, the beacons could be linked to the racing ships computer, so that the closer you are to the beacons path (the "racing line"), the faster the ships engines will go, up to their max speed. this will add and element of skill to the piloting, and allow jostling for position. YARRRR!!

Seriously, go to an arcade if you want a racing game (if you even were serious about this idea, I'm not that sure..)

And that includes racing. If you don't like racing, fine, but that doesn't give you the right to tell someone how he should play his game. Now don't make such a stupid comment in future.

Personally, I'd love the idea of having a ship that was purely designed for racing. It would certainly be a heck of a boon for my corporation that is involved primarily in race-organising and race-betting.

Of course, if such a ship were to exist I'd be tempted to try to have exclusive rights to the blueprints so that only racers who participate in races could obtain these ships...

So Matt, theoretically I should be able to grow space weed in Eve too? Could I please get a ship for harvesting my crop CCP, I think this idea is equally valid compared to the racing one Rolling Eyes

No Theseuss, I think you should self-destruct your battleship everytime you buy one. You've got the right to do that too.

If you don't like racing in Eve, fine, don't get involved in it, but that doesn't give you the right to tell people how you think they should play the game. My own racing corporation has been quite successful and has quite a large following, and if someone wants to expand on the whole racing theme, they have the right to do so, and who needs a boring jackass like yourself to put him down just because you don't like racing...

Besides, didn't you take any notice of the Caldari Championships earlier? What do you think that involved, hmm?

I just think CCP should first fix bugs, balance the game overall before thinking of introducing hotrods into space.

Oh, and big ups for being so civil and going into namecalling. I won't even start with that, thanks.

Eh, for what exactly, care to elaborate? I was just pointing out the idea doesn't really belong to a space game, at least shouldn't be considered of higher priority than bugs & the actual planned content.

Why not race shuttles? This would mean a fair race with all the vehicles being equal and skill of the pilot being the determining factor.

In fact you want a racing ship, take a shuttle, remove the cargo capacity and give it two low slots. There is your racing vehicle. Not effective for blockade running with no cargo space and no real armor or sheilds. Noi mid slot so no EW.

Pure racing craft...

Racing is a good idea, because people all ready have races, and people think its a good idea. On the other hand a weed farm is lame. I guess you are just trying to look 'gangster'.

How about specialized modules that would require special skills .. they'd boost speed & manueverabilty but perhaps they'd take enough grid/cpu to nerf combat abilities. They should have large penalites to cargo space as well.

These would be fast nimble ships, that would have other (limited) uses besides racing. scouting comes to mind...

This way people could have another role for existing ships, & would hopefully encourage a bit more creativity & diversity in racing ships than would simply injecting yet another ship sub-class.

tralala

right first of all if u don't like it y are u here thats right because u are no good at eve so if the game gets inproved u will be even worst at it so u come here and put my idea down. and second all good ideas just a couple of things to say i like the tweak module idea i love the same ship with different tweaks to make it fast here or there. the idea of just usin a shuttle was put out of my mind along time ago this is a new ship that can fill the gap of conroband runs etc and lastly plants can't grow in space so. Oh and by the way if anyone doesn't like the idea the don't post i don't need ur abusee fillin up my postugh

and i'd just like to say thx to everyone who is supportin this idea (i had to change this so i didn't get in trouble with ccp but the bit i edited out was kind of about the people that don't like the idea and a lot of swearin)
