The biggest give away this game is nothing but a cheap Starwars ripoff is the fact it's set in space!

Oh yeah I've also seen someone called Darth Vadar in the game as well I mean how blatent is that?

Ive seen someone called darth solo in game and he has the same ego as darth vader! Laughing

This is one of the things I've been talking with the graphics people (as in people who do 2D and 3D for a living) in my corp. In short, EVE doesn't have unique ship designs nearly at all, most of them are either heavily influenced by some other ship in another game/tv serie/movie or are a hybrid of such. There are some unique designs in EVE but I can't think of any at the moment...

Where did they get the rifter design? I think it looks great... not sure if there are any ships in star wars resembling it?



Looks like a Pod Racer from Ep1.

Actually i think the Nebulon B, if looking like anything in EVE looks like the Myrmidon.




The Myrmidon is clearly a Sharlin class warcruiser.

A crusader always reminded me of an A-wing/swoop/podracer.
A Armageddon looks like a dreadnought from the Katana fleet
A tristan looks like one of Prince Xizor's fighters


Oh yeah Large amarr tower with green lasers in a ring on the upper half.

The Naglfar looks a LOT like the Pride of Hiigara (the Hiigaran Mothership) in Homeworld 2. It's basically the same thing, just the Naglfar is minmatar-ized and it's engines are puny little rockets.

If you want to see what happens when they break the mold of 'classic' fantasy space ship styles, look at the asymmetrical disaster that is most Caldari ships (with few exceptions).

Geddon = Katana Fleet Dreadnought
Executioner/Malediction/Sader = Cylon Fighters
Nag = HW2 Mothership
Nyx = HW2 Bentoosi ship.
Retribution/Vengence = Stormtrooper transport from SW:AOTC.
Hurracane = Victory StarDestroyer.
New Matar BS = Bothan Assualt Frigate.
Avatar = Giant buttplug.

Humans will recognise similarities, not differences. Plus, there have been written and filmed SO MANY sf stories that it'd be silly if the ships didn't resemble each other.

Though I think the Catalyst does too. :)


Uh. The only thing I can see that those ships have in common is the fact that they are both vertical.

And really, after about 40 years of science fiction movies and later video games, you can't really claim that any of those are ripoffs. It's very difficult to come up with a original design in this day and age (Except possibly the Moa. YARRRR!!).

Some of the ships look like they are modelled on ships in Babylon 5. The Raven looks suspiciously like the Centauri Battleship seen in several episodes. The new EvE ship class- Hyperion is also a b5 Ship type.

I dare say EVE is predating the new BSG series. Hence; Cylon Fighters = Executioner.

imo u guys have too much fantasy when it come to comparing lol
have u ever tried to draw a ship? there aren't SO MANY shapes u can invent keeping some kind of harmony, then it's obvious that some ships have the same shape (im still thinking that like only 2-3 ships are FARLY similar to other sagas)
its like saying "blah this 2007 game is looks like that 1998 one"
