so dont use the new graphics content then

its not being forced on you


Tortun, I know you are incapable of posting anything except trolling and insults, but I'm going to respond to this anyway.

My post wasn't a whine about Trinity. Shock horror. I think most of it looks great and I applaud all the hard work that's gone into it. Strangely enough I'm also entirely capable of accepting change. That's why my post didn't say "omfg ccp what r you doing!? I demand you don't change my nighthawk!!11".

I will grow to love the new Nighthawk's look I'm sure. I just wanted to commemorate the passing of something that gave me pleasure, I consider it part of the grieving process.

When you grow up you'll understand Smile

*pats*


Laughing I don't see any trolls or insults in my post, its a simple fact, if you fly the nightmare alot and like the old look better, it wont be too difficult to keep a client installed that DOESNT use the new graphics Laughing

Tortun is correct, CCP is not forcing anyone to use the upgraded graphics, if you want tou fly the nighthawk in its all black form, just choose the option in the menu to use the classic graphics, problem solved.

I seem to be one of the few that actually likes the black/red Caldari ship colour schemes. In fact, I think all the Caldari/Amarr/Minmatar ships have come out of the changes wonderfully. However I reckon many of the Gallente ships have been whacked pretty hard with the ugly stick. I used to laugh at Minmatar for flying scrapheaps held together by duct tape and chewing gum. I think from now on I'll be mocking the Gallente for a) the awful colour schemes, b) the fact that they don't look like they've been repainted in 100 years.

Personally, I like the black with red accents. Makes it a wonderful sexy & gothic machine. *raaarrr* Cool

I find myself preparing to say farewell to the gorgeousness that is the current Nighthawk.

I loved the black. The deep, deep black of it. I don't like the new Trinity upgraded Nighthawk nearly as much. It's not black enough and those red bits on it look terrible in my opinion.

I'll still fly it of course, I love the ship. I'd still fly it if it was painted pink and given a mullet. But I will mourn the passing of what was, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful ships in EVE.

Adjust your graphics card/monitor settings. The NH still looks black to me with cool, dark red, stripes. It even has natty yellow lights that help emphasise the black.

Not the most gorgeous ship on the block but if anyone has an issue with it they can waste their time and ammo on my tank.

Well at least minmatar ships look cool. At the end of the day though its no big deal the pods look better and as the op is obviously a noob, that can only be a good thing.

all you need to do is toggle the option on or off , and reboot client you don't need to reinstall it.

I've always thought the current Nighthawk looks like a formless, black blob or something along that line. Three cheers for change!
This, new one looks cool.. nothing wrong with a little color to spice things up.Very Happy

On my screen it looks like a stealth, but with a subtle oily rainbow sheen as you run the camera round it.
And yellow menacing ports at the front. For looks, I like it best of all the ships I've got.

I like the red stripes, but they'd look really cool if the ship were much darker.

Actually that sounds pretty cool :p Can't wait to actually see all these ships for real now, sounds like they look much better in-game than in screenshots.

I, honestly, think the caldari got a lot of good stuff out of the new visuals...

They used to look like dull grey boxes in space that spewed missiles from their soulless frame...

Stop here if you do not want to spoil the ships overall looks for yourself... :P You've been warned...




Well, if you honestly sit for a moment and look over each races ship ingame... even with bleh graphical settings... I feel caldari got a lot of nice variety in their new skins.

Minmatar look like minmatar... not much to really say, they look like they shuld, brown, metallic worn look in places, exposed panels here and there. Thrasher's "forehead" is an example of that. Boundless creation are just red lights and some random camo you can barely see unless undocked and moving. Thukker, weird flat design that looks funky in my eyes, core complexion is ok, but it's just silver/blue version of boundless.

Gallente... oh yes the ones everyone loves the new look of :P It's honestly not that badd once you get used to it. shipyard looks ain't bad either. Duvolle has a weird poo yellowgreen though, but it's not too terrible as it grows on you. Redon is a bit dark and flat, but the enyo looks utter badass (btw are the two launchers supposed to look like they have a messed up texture?) Creodron... well they look fine, bit flat like the Roden ones but still, they're acceptable. Eos looks boring now however, and with its nerf... I feel rather sorry for it, even took away its chin thing.

Amarr. Amarr shouldn't really have any complaints on their look. They have just the right ammount of gold and reflections, too much and it'd look TOO gawdy and I would honestly think it'd be horrible. No, they have light color panels with gold/chrome mixed in and finally look like they have actual armor plates on them. Khanid look sweet with their black and blue. Carthum look great with their gold and red. and Viziam...um, green zealot... :| .......

*5 minute silence*

but ships like the executioner have nice lil details, like if you look closely you can see the internal bits of the ship, s its lacking armor plates possibly?

Caldari, ah Caldari, they look pretty friggin sweet now... infact it makes me jealous a bit. I can't memorize or specifically get their shipyards down but they all have a general 3 theme thing. Harpy/Manticore/raptor They have this really nicely done reflection, dark grey with yellow highlights and orange lighting... looks really really nice in space and even docked. blue/camo peoples, Hawk/Buzzard/Eagle examples... the camo is flat yet also shiny enough to look metal, blue lights and hints of chrome on someships... I too like this as I do the yellow/silver guys above. Crow/nighthawk people...they're pretty nice too, gives the highthawk some soul, not just a flat black lifeless box that missiles fly out of.. and the crow, how could you complain about that? :/ if anything they gave an already over popular ship a cool factor to it. Though, why on earth does the nighthawk have a grey/plain bridge? Did they just get to that point in building the ship and just say "ok you know what, just **** it, we're out of black and red paint"


End totally pointless and random rant.

It's the changes to the attributes of Gallente rather than the colours that are of most concern to me.

But that's just me being all weird and stuff....

Shame about that Nighthawk though. Perhaps they can rename it Dayhawk.

Why do you keep telling people to use the old gfx engine with the old Skins?
This will not be possible
There will be 2 client versions a direct X 8 version and a direct X 9 version
Both will be using the same skins just one will be more shiny

You all FAIL!!!! Lol

P.s
I want my black NH and CNR back my navy mega and vindi still look cool tho ;)

I personally think that Gallente have the most beautiful ships in Trinity.

Followed by Caldari. The raven finally looks good.
