As long as the horrid cow-spots-camo on the Vaga gets replaced for something better (suggestion: don't use white!), I liked the rest of what I saw. Art department does great work - love the new Stabber and Tempest models.

Minmatar Destroyer: Hate the block head look. I think if they melded the block into the back of the ship better it would look nice. The rest of the ship looks cool but they need to do something with that block imho.

Gallente Destroyer: Not sure I like this one either, but I think it might just be the angle of the screenshot. To my eye it looks like I'm looking at the front of it even though I know it's the back because I can see the engine flares.

Caldari Destroyer: Win
Amarr Destroyer: Win. Yeah, it does look a bit like the coercer but I think there is enough of a difference (looks heavier).
Mining Frig: Pure Win! Awesome job!
Salvage Drone: Win
New Stabber: Pure sexy win!
New Vagabond: Not sure I like the white and black paint job but it's got FRILLS!!
New Tempest/Vargur: Pure sexy win!

New Megathron: Generally I like it, but I think the side engines need to be rotated 45 so that they angle better with that section of the hull. It's just the contrast between those engines and the smoothness of the rest of the hull make them stick out like a sore thumb. I really like the new command tower Shocked


TLDR: Good Job, needs a couple of tweaks IMHO.

That's a huge step backwards! Its as if the new model is the old model, and the old model is the revamped version of the mega.

My days that's horrible. Personally I have always loved how the mega looks, you have killed it CCP.

Please don't listen to this person. The new megathron is awesome. Please continue to make exceptional things like this.

I was also quite impressed, and pleased by the new Megathron.

But please upgrade the forum servers before you even think of remodelling the Rifter, I can only imagine the traffic... Blink

Please accept our apologies for this short term notification.

I should probably wait for the finished version I guess, I find its just too blocky.

If you have to do Camo in space..

Why not Dazzle camo? It makes much more sense...

AFK cloaking devblogs, best devblogs.

Also, now we can see why everyone is always waiting on the art team...

Really weird to take it down like this. Could we get some further explanation of what is going on?

[u]The nerfs to supercaps will cause more super pilots to join the largest alliances who can properly "support" their deployment, further concentrating firepower/wealth in EVE. The end result will be fewer "fun" fights, and will hurt EVE in the long run.[/u]

My prior post aside I think it comes down partially to taste. To me it feels like the new hull feels more battleship like.

Because a Vaga that is painted like this looks stupid

There were a few errors in the wording that we needed to iron out.

We're in the process of speaking with the Art department and copy editing the Blog before we put it back out.

It does make me sadface that it was taken down, as it's an awesome blog, but It'll be re-released as soon as we're happy with its content.
