I think the Ark is even better looking. It's one of my favorite ships in the game. I don't really think rolls tarnish that... besides, if you are rolling in a really cool PvP ship you probably have the graphics turned all the way down already anyway so you can't appreciate your ship properly (at least I turn down my gfx).

I clicked this topic when I just read *Provi is too pretty*


Leaving disapointed.

Anyone else wish that the Providence was a battleship? I just love the way that ship looks.


Always thought it should have a big picture of some squid-head dude in a white spacesuit, painted on the hull. Blink

All freighters would look good with weapons.


Always hoped CCP would come out with "East India Merchantman" type concept for an armed freighter, or a "Q-ship" perhaps, but I doubt there's a niche for it the way the ship types currently exist.

I want to put a large turret on my Skiff (with x3 damage). Then I can run lvl4 missions with it and mothball all my battleships.

Agreed, both the Skiff and the Procurur need turrets, and another 25m3 of drone bay.

Battlebadger, although something like subsystems applied to a transport ship/freighter would make for a good Q-Ship.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

What's wrong with a freighter being "pretty"?

Change your profession if you want to fly this ship.

You spend such a long time looking at freighters while they align and warp, that aesthetic appeal is essential to maintain sanity.

Any colour you like.

I like the looks of the Providence also!

Maybe more amazing, however, is what the great OEG folks have created: Providence and Sigil. You might also want to have an extensive look at the EVE Online OEG wallpaper series, it is worth it!

The Providence/Ark is also one of my favourite ship models.

Provi and Ark are gorgeous, no doubt.

Actually all freighters are awesome design except the Obelisk, which is a bit too steampunky to my taste.
