Hi all,

I’m CCP Thrustmaster. I am a member of the team that has so far brought you Primae, Noctis, Punisher, Maller, Scorpion, Sansha mothership and a few more. We are in the process of doing something called “V3 shader project” of our current catalogue of ships. This involves a lot of work for our artists. While this project does not involve new ship geometry, it does mean that older ships will look more up to date than they are now in game. Ship shaders look better, and we are adding thruster glow to each ship's thrusters.

We have a huge backlog of ships and other space assets that are due for facelifts and makeovers. In this first iteration we are tackling the technical part of the work for the entire EVE fleet and later this year will start working on what is the actual visual improvements. We are all the more motivated by the player enthusiasm for things that look good while they go Pew-Pew. We will have a dev blog in the near future explaining this in much more detail.



Are you guys planning on removing the missile launchers built into ships while you are at it so you dont have to do the same work twice when ccp overhead finally decides that missile launchers need thier own 'turrets' or are you guys going to keep those ships 'hands off' until you get the go ahead and save them for last?

You mean first iteration of v3 will come out with Augustus or with Tiberius? Rolling Eyes
Also I have seen that old Scorp model is still updating (lod model iirc), and some NPCs (like EOM cruisers) have old models.
Does this mean CCP have plans for this hulls, maybe sell them for aur?

Also small question about the Salvagers/Tractorbeams.

Maybe an good idea to make them scale with your ship? A tractorbeam/salvager on a Noctis looks like a tiny dot.)

Haha yea my tractor beam on my Orca is so tiny, but i like that, it gives the ship scale into perspective.

QFT!

Please do never ever (again) scale turrets/effects/positionInHangar/whatever in regard to the ships size. As Zeko Rena already stated, keeping stuff in one size across all shipsizes is a great opportunity to introduce some sense of scale. And that's one of the things EVE is missing or lets say not using enough since its start back in 2003.

The updated models and ships do look great. I look forward to seeing more of them.

Thank you all for your feedback. I'll make sure to keep my team on its toes in regards to updates on graphics/models, etc.

I think the Scorpion looks downright spiffy. So good job there.

On a related note, are you the guys in charge of getting the art contest ships in game? Cause I want the Tornado. I want it bad.

It truly has nothing to do with authorization or not. I'm neither on the team that handles that, nor familiar with the work that the are planning. My primary interest and focus is the community, familiarizing myself with future design and tech stuff, and the like.

I'm sorry but this is a cop out answer, I've done some community management and as someone focused on the community, it is your responsibility (and your job) to be interested and knowledgeable about everything and anything your community is interested in.

I'm sure CCP has a clear stance about the future of microtransactions in EVE and I find it highly unlikely that you're out of the loop of such a huge decision within CCP, I Wish you guys would just give us a straight answer and stop the damage control.

You've done a cracking job so far but can you please if possible try and get the Raven model looked at. It litterally looks like the design inspiration for the Raven came from a cup of pens with a little notebook placed next to it. Seriously get a cup point the handel out to the right stick some pens or pencils inside it and then put a little notbook on the left hand side of the cup and it looks like a Raven. Its an awefull awefull design, the person that created the Raven must have had some kind of inspirational block and just looked at there desk infront on them to get some random shape for the Raven.

Hi CCP.Thrustmaster,

Is it possible to also add such shining hangar bay force fields to the other carrier vehicles?

I miss them on the most of the carriers and the drone boats like abitrator class cruiser.

On the noctis and sansha motherships they are already shiny :D. Btw I love the new engine effect..
I also prever the new models ..

PLease work on Abitrator, Raven, Dominix, Vexor (the badest textures I ever seen in EVE), Blackbird. Those ships realy need a new model. You can take the ideas of the contest people, there a many good designs.

Also Moa! IMHO this hull deserved a remodelling much more than the Maller. Tho I really like the new Maller.

Holy happy crowd Batman! Doth my eyes deceive me?! Do I actually see people PRAISING a dev in a time like this?! NO WAY!.....

Send this thread to Hellmar so he can see what happens when CCP listens to its players and implements things that we request...nigh BEG for.

Way to go guys, I love this game, I love the devs that really care and you guys are doing great. Keep up the good work! Our rage is reserved for those who deserve it. :)

Would it be possible at some point to have higher ship texture resolutions? Definitely not set as standard, but there as an option for newer graphics cards in the same way higher textures are available for the Avatars. The ships look lovely from mid range, but close in the small details are blurry. Many thanks.

Why can't ORE make battleships? I think the best ship designs in the game are ORE Industrial (Except the ORCA. Not much elegant about that...)
