Dear Dominix,
Pink is not a color your going to receive upon the upgrade, rhoden has selected a new color for thier ships in the comming weeks, a color that looks very closely to what humans oftenly bleed. This agressive and far darker tone sets a new level of frieght for those whom used to laugh at the comical pink thorax but now face something that looks like a dagger that just got done gutting somone. Im sure the upgraded variant will receive thier dark blood color just fine.

Dear Dominix,

Worry not! Whilst you may be suffering from an identity crisis, there are many out there who consider you a friend and companion; who will stick with you through thick and thin, regardless of how you believe you look.

For the longest time you were underrated, and I remember your cries from those early days; "The other battleships laugh at me, whatever am I to do?" and the oft repeated "I look like a whale!" But then you embraced the times, and became one with the speed and the nosferatu.

Alas, that time has passed, and your cohorts in the battleship legions have to reassess your position. Your beauty has been increased with a short time spent in rehab, and now, having kicked your addiction to nosferatu's, you can once again claim a place amongst the space lanes.

I, for one, will always consider you formidable, and look upon you with wary eyes. Your beauty and grace may not be the equal of all others, but your strength, fortitude and low-low price tag draws pilots to your vast bosom anew, each day.

No aspect of "the light dancing across the hull" and the "Sweeping turn" can possibly make that ship look good.

It still, very literally, looks like a flying lump of poo. People often say "That thing looks like S---" about a wide variety of objects, and this is merely a subjective qualification of appearance. But when you say that about the Dominix, this description is making an objective statement regarding it's uncanny physical resemblence to a large chunk of human excrement.

The entire model needs to be thrown out, not just reskinned.

I wanted the Dominix to get a white skin with black spots, a tail in the back that waggles continuously, and a special "MOO!" horn.

I wanted to stand in roid fields, chew on veldspar and watch the ships go by.

And this is why gallente ships will allways be a tad superior.

Dear CCP,

My name is Dominix and I was once a proud Gallente battleship. Proud to undock. Proud to launch my drones. Proud to fly the flag!

A few painful months ago I was dominant. I could stand toe to toe with any battleship. I laughed at the DPS of the Typhoon and out tanked the Armageddon. I held power with my nos and drones! Even my upper Tier Megathron and Hyperion brothers had respect for me. They knew I did the family proud. And then that terrible, terrible day landed. The nos nerf hit. I understand it CCP! I am not mad at you. You are my creator, my mother, my father, and hold all power. I understand that the power that nos had in my hands was out of balance. I understand that my Tier 1 brothers from other factions held resentment and jealousy in their hearts. I understand it needed balance and I forgive you!

I am not here before you today to cry for my loss. My fall from dominance. My decent from the Tier 1 BS throne. I fear that my end, my disgrace is approaching CCP! You have cast me into the pit and turned your back! But do not walk away, hear my cries CCP! Look! Look at me.

Dominix

I cannot face you, but please look at me! Did I not pay a high enough price for my years of dominance? Have I not suffered enough with the nos nerf?

Why do you disgrace me! When all around me get beautiful skins, i get this. I get shame and laughter. I get pink and teal. Pink and teal! Do not abandon me CCP. Do not walk away and leave me in this pit, alone and outcast!

Please, I beg you CCP. Allow me to once again walk with my head held high. Proud among my brothers. Reskin me before my disgrace arrives. Do not leave me in Trinity in my current state!



Sincerely and always with obedience,


Dominix

Pfft... i like it, git face.

There's two things that need to be taken onboard when looking at Trinity screenshots:

1) Shiny bits generally now reflect the ambient light. If you're in a pink system, your ship may look pink. If you're in a system with a nice blue star, bits of your ship will look a nice cool blue to reflect that. It's kinda like the nose of the old Purifier, only more better like.

2) You really, really need to see this thing in motion - screenshots don't do the beauty of the engine justice. It's not until you've seen a ship execute a slow turn and watched the shadows dance across the surface that you'll really appreciate what's been achieved.

In other words, worry ye not.


This.

Also:

3) The dominix no longer looks like something that you should be flushing away rather than flying... Wink

Also, looks less pink here:

lol very good.

tbh dominix is still extremely powerful. 700 dps with a tougher tank than a tier 3 bs...

400 dps from drones without a single hit to your cpu, pg...

anyways very funny opening post- now lets see how many other losers do it for the pickup laughs on others ships...

It really isn't pink. It's silver and baby blue, and yes, it really does not look very good. Meanwhile, all those Roden ships you mentioned now look fantastic because their pink has become blood red, and mixed with the strong black secondary patterning you end up with vessels that have a real predatory look to them.

...Of course, the Enyo is still an assault frigate and the Eris remains a split high slot mess of a ship, but hey, at least the Ares is now a legitimate & worthwhile vessel. It's become a really fantastic tackler!

I see from the screenshots that I shall still scorn to fly the domi, no matter how nice the stats are. It's not the skintone, it's that broadhead prow, the squeezed off tail, and every damned thing in between. The whole planform is a mess. At least the mega looks nice 'n' beastly now, and my beloved Hype...well, can't say the colors are great (I loved the bronzed look of the old engine) but at least the hull's shape is properly shiplike and doesn't make me want to go wipe a few extra times.

Sigh. And I really hoped for something more where the Domi was concerned.

If you look at all the new gallante ships they have this new 'cool blue' effect, so actually the dominix is surly not alone and most certainly does look like he comes from a family.

Cool blue suits The Snowman just fine ugh

though I will mourn the bright orange hull that was the shuttle Crying or Very sad

That blue is horrible. Much worse then pink. Did the designer(s) recently become (a) parent(s) to twins, what with all the pink and baby blue colors.

Could I just have a rustbucket Domi please, RogueDrone faction Domi would be the coolest ever, as long as it isn't a baby color. Brown rust with holes in the surface would be most excellent. Give the glitterboys their shiny toys, and give me stuff that says function over form, even in coloring. Baby blue says something completely different, perhaps even worse then a pink thorax.

The white with black spots mentioned would work too.

I'll still fly it of course, no matter what it looks like.

Im praying that there's some fundamental bit of code not deployed yet.. something shader related, whatever.

Im just not seeing the shineys here.. all these matt pastels on the gallente ships? is that intentional?

would you drive a car painted using interior wall paint? do you see car/bike manufacturers using matt paint on their vehicles? what am i missing here..

and the texture on the myrmidon now looks to be of a LOWER RESOLUTION than the one on TQ.. double-u-t-eff mate.

I'm praying my grfx card palette is somewhat out of whack and can be fixed with an hardware upgrade.

The color used on Gallente looks like something that got a color, then.. Chlorine! It's just .. pale.. kind of. But.. Maybe it has to be this way to not getting ruined in certain systems (background color).

You can get away with this color on small ships. But, my Thanatos!!.. hehe, can't wait to see a Titan in those colors.

The T2 base colors are ok tho..

I see what you mean about the bioshock style.
I'd say its a mix between minoan art (think atlantis) Minoan art

and art deco style a-la bioshock Art deco

I actually really really really like the new design of the domi. It's got a really cool look to it, i happen to like art deco/minoan style geometric art.
Good job ccp :)

The Dominix is hideous. The new color scheme just makes it worse. The model and the textures have more detail, and the self shading and lighting effects are great, especially on the other models. But the Dominix is just a horrible design, with no character or asthetics what so ever. Adding more detail to a pile of crap still doesn't change the fact that it's a pile of crap.

Clearly time and effort was devoted to remodeling a large number of ships in the game. The Minmatar shuttle looks amazing. Why couldn't the Dominix model be ditched and likewise completely re-envisioned?
