needs a new model asap...something that actually looks like a space ship...look at all the new ships added since eve launch, all have same design lines long hull and thin like rokh, naga, drake etc...moa and osprey are among the only onws that looks like a ...they don't actually look like anything.

Occasionally , when I'm thinking about engaging a Moa and I do a quick 'look at' to check guns I have trouble working out what direction it's flying and where it's guns are.

I suppose that gives it a tactical advantage. It's like one of those beetles with a face on it's arse.

Domi and Vexor are far worse than the Moa.

Never getting redesigned. The look has a significant number of fans.


As a fan however, I do think it'd benefit from a Raven style 'upgrade'.

Because it's just so ugly and poorly modeled (and textured) to begin with. When are we seeing an update (and a redesign)?


Despite its select fan base, I agree that the overall ugliness drives away far more people than it pleases. Frankly, I could see several Caldari designs getting remodelled. I would totally favor CCP making more Caldari designs similar to the Corax, which is just the epitome of cool.

You are both wrong the domi is beautiful. It's not fat. It just has so much internal volume which it needs to house all those drones. And the Vexor is attractive too. It is a flying severed horse head to drop into the bedrooms or your adversaries. Who could argue with that.

The Moa and Blackbird hulls though are almost like the Caldari kidnapped the minmatar ship designers responsible for the burst, gave them a larger budget, and said here's some parts from other Caldari ships. See what you can do. They along with the burst need some serious work to make "pretty."

For all the pilots who think Moa needs a redesign:

Eve is NOT ::Insert any sci-fi space opera setting here::

Symmetry is not a requirement. On the contrary its asymmetrical look is VERY Caldari.

I, too, have come to appreciate the Domi. Eve is largely populated by long, angular ships. It's nice to see one that's so bulbuous. The other cool thing about the Domi is that its bulk gives it a real presence -- it actually feels like a battleship when you're nearby.

I liked the description of 'Dinosaur with a Suitcase' the best. I rather like my party lizard. Now if you want ugly - both the Bantam and the Burst got hit with the ugly stick.

I think they look just fine. Only thing they need to do to the moa is make a navy version Blink

The Moa's model is charming. I wouldn't mind a texture revamp/more polys, but the overall look has grown on me.

not everybody can fly a moa. It takes someone with high resistance to concentrated ugliness.

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value
