Can CCP please post its own screenshots of these? The EOH site refuses to load ships for me and i just get a black screen.

I am dying to see the serp brutix

Tasty! And definitely love the in-game/non-AUR ones. That said, I'm sure there are a lot of us who'd LOVE to see destroyers/BCs from the pirate factions with appropriate buffing, rather than purely cosmetic pirate ships... ;)

I don't suppose there is any chance of getting a T3 ship skin?

Some of us are too spacerich to be seen in a T1 ship


Also! Thisthisthis.

I'm not likely to skin a basic Raven, because for my carebearing I tend to use a RNI; but if I could skin a Raven Navy Issue, I'd totally do it. Similarly, I'm likely to engage in skinning shenanigans with a Tengu, or god help me a Chimera or Phoenix-- though in those cases, they'd have to be in-game achievable or not like carrying a $50 come-shoot-me sign on my shiny ship.

Pretty stoked about lowsec getting some stuff that could increase income for people living there. Game on!

Also, being able to fly pirate skinned ships in pirate heaven.... mmm, real Guristas gatecamps.

Why do you hate logi pilots?

Still not a single logi ship with a skin!

Interesting... Has the program worked well enough yet that CCP wants to invest the time into making these skins something more like a rig slot rather than entirely new ships?

We are indeed continuing to work towards tech that will allow possible future implementations. We showed some of the work going into the ship customization tech at the EVE keynote at Fanfest.


Personally, I want that tool released as is. Oops

Because its so hard to create a "special" rig slot just for ship skins? There's no reason to reinvent the wheel guys. Give everyone rigs in the store instead and this gets rid of that stupid bpc edge case as well (aka cost to produce the item in the new industry changes)

It is, because right now, a different skin requires a different item in the database, and just making it "turns A->B" has alot of issues that can crop up. Theyd basically have to separate item ID from art/asset-ID. I dont know much about programming but i can bet theres alot of other annoyign crap aswell.

Though I would like to see at soem point maybe a small price reduction to the skins, as it is, for someone on pvp-with-a-budget, cant really bling out a ship im likely to lose, if i could get 4 or 5 skins for the price of 1 right now though, id be buying a bunch.

Nice, loving the Guristas Ferox and Serpentis Brutix.

Keep them coming CCP and make the application and de-application a simple matter. Big smile

Cloaking is the closest thing to a "Pause Game" button one can get while in space.

For those having trouble seeing the ships at the EOH site,
try http://www.caldariprimeponyclub.com/
Select ships by clicking on the debug 2 tab
UI still WIP but the viewer works great :)

ALL of them.

Not sure if I like gurista ships using rails and not missiles/drones.

My preference would be having them be actual faction ships as there are no actual pirate faction destroyers and battlecruisers.

Fozzie, beloved developer, sweet prince of dreams, Iam dying to finally spend some of my Aurum on a wonderful ship skin, if only there'd be one for the ships I fly [Dominix / Orca / Drake / Iteron V / Mackinaw / Tengu].

When oh when am I going to be able to engage with this beautiful content?

Now can we plase have the option to add these skins to the T2 version of the hulls as well or will have to wait until we get a paint slot?

My concern with some of these designs is that they represent a closing of doors in some regards.

By releasing, for instance, a 'serpentis skinned brutix' that has regular brutix stats, you close the door on ever getting an actual serpentis brutix. By making these ships just skins, you make it so they can never be unique ships.

I would rather not get the skins, and get actual pirate destroyer and battlecruisers.

These don't actually rule out future ships using similar skins. So far we have avoided overlap since we have so few skins anyways, but we reserve the right to make pirate battlecruisers and destroyers using these skins or variations of these skins sometime in the future.

However, we have no current plans to do so.

would be nice to get new ship models for all new ships .. and the current pirate ships...

T3's need to be versatile so no rigs are necessary ... they should not have OP dps and tank

ABC's should be T2, remove drone assist, separate HAM's and Torps range, -3 HS for droneboats
