Taking away Khanid command ship without a new T2 BC to replace it?




Not accepted.

You know the Abso isn't Khanid right? This change does not affect the Damnation.

You are right.

i really wouldn't change any hull at all. Let them stay as they are now on TQ.

BALEX, bringing piracy on a whole new level.

Mea Culpa.

Not a fan of the Absolution change. Harbinger just looks bad (and has misplaced turrets).

Wow, i really wanted a Khanid Harbinger, but it looks ... damn sexy.
All of them look nice. Except for the cane, that one looks pretty much like any other cane.

Abso sort of remind me of Ironman.

But awesome changes. They all look great.

Nooooooooooooo!!!! Fozzie you've murdered my laser chickens!

I like all the other model changes, but the Amarr one. So... I guess 3 of 4 isn't terrible. I'll just have to get used to it. However, I just recently bought a prophecy BPO and that makes me a little sad as it doesn't has a much use as it did a few moments ago.

+1 Totally cool! Somewhat related, what are the chances we might see the ability to change skins, colors or themes on these ships down the road? I really prefer the Kaalakiota color scheme over some of the others.

Seriously folks, how can you not like these? The EOS, Absolution and Nighthawk are totally wicked.

I am currently away, traveling through time and will be returning last week.

The Sleipnir shouldn't have its hull swapped around. Can't you make an exception and turn the Claymore into that instead? You've done it for Gallente with the navy battlecruisers, before.

I think It would be cool to have any newly manufactured ship have the new model, and the old ones keep the old model. I understand though how easy it is just to change the model.

The textures look great! Nit picking: The drake texture seems too dark to find any detail, The myrm model seems rather bland. Any chance of changing the color of the engine trails? red/purple engine trails for the nighthawk would be cool.

Oh god I love you. I've always wanted a tech 2 or faction myrmidon. And now I get a tech 2 drake to go with it.

it seem that taking the standard BC look and throwing new colors and name on it is a bit of a cop out, i think you can do better

This owns, thanks.

Are there any manufacturing changes besides just swapping the BPC you need to use to invent and the base ship needed?

But what's the logic behind this?

The command ships already look sufficiently different to each other. You're actually removing ship models simply to re--use other models that are represented twice in the game already.

As much as I think the new models (or skins I should say) look great, I don't like the change unless there are strong reasons going forward (like multiple versions of the unchanged command ships).

The change to the Sleipnir (probably my favorite ship) makes me sad. I can't say I am thrilled to see the waffle iron (drake model) used for another ship.
