This is a very simple change, so I am just going to list out all the changes:

Dual 650mm Repeating Artillery and all its variations have been renamed as follows:

  • Domination Dual 650mm AutoCannon
  • Dual 650mm 'Scout' AutoCannon I
  • Dual 650mm AutoCannon I
  • Dual 650mm AutoCannon II
  • Dual 650mm Carbine Repeating Cannon I
  • Dual 650mm Gallium Machine Gun
  • Dual 650mm Prototype Automatic Cannon
  • Gotan's Modified Dual 650mm AutoCannon
  • Mizuro's Modified Dual 650mm AutoCannon
  • Republic Fleet Dual 650mm AutoCannon


800mm Repeating Artillery and all its variations have been renamed as follows:

  • 800mm AutoCannon I
  • 800mm AutoCannon II
  • 800mm Heavy 'Jolt' AutoCannon I
  • 800mm Heavy 'Scout' AutoCannon I
  • 800mm Heavy Carbine Repeating Cannon I
  • 800mm Heavy Gallium Machine Gun
  • 800mm Heavy Prototype Automatic Cannon
  • Domination 800mm AutoCannon
  • Gotan's Modified 800mm AutoCannon
  • Mizuro's Modified 800mm AutoCannon
  • Republic Fleet 800mm AutoCannon


6x2500mm Repeating AutoCannon and all its variations have been renamed as follows:

  • 6x2500mm Heavy Gallium Machine Gun
  • 6x2500mm AutoCannon I


If you are wondering why, basically because it was stupid before and stupid needs to be fixed. I think most of these were actually supposed to be artileries when first created based on the item they were copied from and then later made into autocannons. Just their names and descriptions were never properly updated.

Let me know if I have missed something in these weapons and their renaming.

First!

I would have thought that these guns being listed under the "Autocannons" section of the market would have served as sufficient indication that they are in fact not actually Artillery, but I've been wrong before.

Repeating autocannon is a silly name.

What would make more sense than "If you are wondering why, basically because it was stupid before and stupid needs to be fixed. I think most of these were actually supposed to be artileries when first created based on the item they were copied from and then later made into autocannons. Just their names and descriptions were never properly updated." would probably be:

They were called repeating artilleries because they were basically smaller sized artilleries (hence "artillery") which were shooting very fast (hence "repeating") and to make them shoot faster you need more CPU / PG.

I admit that it is not "idiot"-proof but I actually liked eve when it wasn't ... CCP is now only working on making everything more ... well ... "idiot"-proof. Reorganising skills, changing a lot of names on things (siege launchers => torpedo launcher ... because omg it's soooo hard to remember that torpedoes will be launched from siege launchers), "rebalancing" ships (many of the ships were actually pretty useful the way they were even if they were not the last tier) and so on ...

Basically this game is getting more and more "******"-friendly (to change the term a bit.)

Why do you camel case AutoCannon, I suggest using `Autocannon` everywhere

You are entirely correct, which is why thats not what I named them. I copy and pasted from the wrong excel sheet. >.<

Op has been updated with the correct names.

Are there changes to Autocannons themselves to be expected?

I have no idea, I just renamed them because they should be called autocannons. :)

I'm assuming the "dual" part is to differentiate between smaller class guns with the same caliber, but on a technical note, a lot of these guns, the way they are designed right now, could be considered "dual", such as dual 800mm Autocannon. And then there is artillery which are all dual-barreled. Maybe I'm just anal about it, but it would be cool if artillery had a single barrel design as opposed to double barrels. Then 650mm artillery cannon would look more like a 650mm, 1400mm wouldn't look like a dual 1400mm, etc. The naming just sucks for all the guns right now and almost don't correlate to what they actually look like.

Quit making sense CCP FoxFour.

Also your thread may need some glue to not get buried.

If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

You can remodel the 1200s to be single-barreled (it might even be better) but don't you lay a finger on my beautiful 1400s.

While we're talking about art assets, maybe the 800s can get some actual barrels inside their rotating cylinders, much like Valkyries have on their guns.

Okay, I admit the 1400mm's one of my favorite models, but.. but.. what if they made it a BFG Roll

And I feel like both a few of the ACs, arty and railguns could use a touch up. Some of them look plain silly like the 250mm artillery and all the smaller caliber railguns of each size.

Do that with the 1200. Leave the 1400s alone.

Also, where's the sticky? Isn't a dev-posted thread supposed to have a sticky?
