Seriously.

The Mammoth is one of the coolest looking ships in the game. It has a command presence. I can't believe it is just a hauler.

I say, make the Typhoon an indy ship and the Mammoth a BS.

Who's with me!?!?! YARRRR!!


Okay, you can flame me now. Very Happy

I think the designer hit it right with both ships. They both look great and I think fit the description quite right. Both are at the top of my coolest ship list. But you cant argue about looks I guess Cool

the real question is .... which are the ugly ships ? :)

dom = winnar of most ugliest bship in the game !!!!!!! i bet the person who designed it was not as "sober" as he thought he was :D

if the apoc had more thrusters at the back, itstead of looking like it was sliced in 2, IT WOULD BE THE BEST LOOKING SHIP EVER !!!! i still love apoc though :) just try not stare at its ugly ass all the time.

Megathron is a pretty cool looking ship, but the armagedon ..... er needs some fins or something to take it away from looking like something out of your classic pron movie ... sensual adult entertainment .. STARING THE .... OMG ARMAGEDON !!!!!!

sick thoughts aside, armagedon is a very cool ship. The caldari ship look cool too, once u get used to them :)

yeah i read the mammoth was originally designed as a BS, but they changed it to a hauler as things developed - something like that.

It is a cool looking ship, but I do like the Typhoon aswell Very Happy

The Typhoon is an awesome battleship.. and barring the graphic error at the back right hand side where it's inverted (which has been noted before and time and time again and all its takes is a matter of inverting a few normals) it's a nice model the gun mounts works perfectly with my current setup. Although I would love to shock people taking the mammoth into battle >:D

I think people who don't appreciate the beauty of the dom are people who don't have DX9 enabled cards or something similar, because it's a pretty kewl ship with all the bling bling on.

The dom looks quality.

The Mammoth should definitely be a BS, but the 'phoon is cool too. Get rid of the tempest model i say :D

LOL..Exactly!

Well, it is true that design is subjective. But when I imagine a BS that is imposing and threatening...I don't imagine a big floating piece of space-poo liek the Typhoon. I think of a ship like the Mammoth.

I can always dream...right? Shocked

A corp mate once said "hey Gee, nice BS btw", as I dropped out of warp next to him in my Mammoth. "This is an Indy mate" I said. That was about 1 month ago, and the 1st time since release I actually took a second look and realised "you know, this could easily look like a battleship" :D

Oh yes, the Mammoth has something special about it. I've always thought they look majestic in some strange way when they glide towards the gates.

And even if it's off topic I have to say I don't think the Dom is ugly. It just looks like it means serious business. And the detail of the textures is simply great.

Yes - the Mammoth has the feel of Gallente input in Megathron sense but not Iteron likeness and also the drone bay opening at the bow.

I would keep the Typhoon model or my "Golf Bag" as I call it.

I would trash the Tempest model - it looks so good from the front, OK from behind but utterly pathetic from the side, and it is so vertical that it doesn't even fit into Minmatar stations. However, in light of recent game mechanics changes you don't see as many around anymore - there's certainly a glut of Tempest BPCs on the escrow market - so perhaps it would help if it looked better. I refer to the Tempest as "The marriage of an ironing board and a TV aerial who met in an industrial accident"

I think the caldari have the ugliest ships in the game, save the condor and trash the rest of those models. I like the look of the dom and I have to admit, I thought the mammoth was a bs, I was flying around in my starter ship exploring and flew next to one at a gate and got really nervous. lol

heh me too with the mammoth...

but the merlin and the kestrel are two of the coolest looking frigates in game... hell, IMO the Punisher/Executioner/Inquisistor/Tormentor/Bantam/Condor/Kestrel/Heron/Merlin/Tristan/Breacher/Rifter/Slasher/Vigil are great looking frigates with their own personality... And the blackbird/caracal are sweet looking cruisers. But lets not talk about how good looking the arbirtator is Very Happy

Yeah, I'd agree that the Mammoth graphic should replace the tempest for the big minmater BS. The Temtest looks like a floating heap. I personally like the Typhoon though, reminds me of a giant cannon. I remember the when I was a little noob, just after I bought my first bantam flying into an astroid belt to mine. There was this huge Mammoth there, was scared for a good 30 mins that it would kill me.

I have mixed opinions about the merlin. But the Rifter, Punisher, Kestrel, Heron, Tristan, Slasher, Vigil, Executioner and the Ceptor versions are definetly cool looking. Now almost all the Caldari cruisers except the Caracal look like total crap. And the caldari BS's might look cool if they were more symetrical, think the scorp would rock if it had two symetrical wings.

Same thing happened to me when i first got my mammoth, dropped out of warp into a small mining op my corp was having and they all said. 'WOW! when did u get a bs! its 10 times the size of my frigate!' then i told them it was an indy and they still wondered Very Happy

Why attack the typhoon?

I really love my phoon, partly because its a great ship that is radically different from the tempest but also because of what it looks like.

I would hate to see it go.

I do however agree that the mammoth does not look much like a hauler, the huge dronebay openings sugests it was originally designed to be a war ship (I have only rumors to back that statement up).

I say make a new mammoth design and add in the mammoth as one of the destroyer class ships.

That way we both get what we want :)

Definitely make the Mammoth into at least a battlecruiser, or something else besides an industrial.

Typhoon doesnt look bad.
