[Suggestion] Return the Federation Navy Comet to it's previous skin

Test Alliance Please Ignore
#1 - 2013-03-12 19:15:08 UTC
After seeing a lot of positive feedback across many different forms of EVE discussion media, I would like to formerly propose that the Federation Navy Comet be reverted to it's previous skin.

There are many favorable responses to this idea across the EVE Forums, Reddit, Twitter, and other EVE media outlets. While I have seen and could document countless cases of people being in favor of this change, I have yet to see anybody who prefers the current skin to the previous one.

If the previous skin does not hold up with current V3 skins, an updated V3 version (complete with flashinglight!) would be a very acceptable alternative.

I am posting this in hopes of drawing attention to a central location so that all in favor of restoring the Comet to it's former glory can show their support here, where our cries can be heard. With the changes to faction frigates due this summer, now seems to be the best time for this change.

For those who have not seen the Comet in it's previous glory:

It should be noted that the light flashed!

I'm asking that all in favor of this change post in this thread as if it were a petition. Other feedback is also appreciated. If it worked for the Vagabond, it can work for the Comet!

For details on the summer faction frigate changes (and Comet cries!):

I like the new skin, but the Comet should have it's police lights back.

Woop woop.

The space police was easily my favourite frig model. The whole Navy camo thing makes no sense and looks bland.

I don't see how the current jungle camo is fitting of a navy at all. Besides, if you read the description it's a police ship, adopted for navy and capsuleer use.

I love the ship's old skin and its police motif. Ideally I'd love to see a v3 version of the old, striped skin, with the GFPD branding from the even older skin.

Yes, the old model had way more personality on the ship than the new one Big smile
