I think the dev's should let us (eve public) design a ship or two. All we would need is to know what format the file needs to be saved in and we could use our licensed software, or or most trial software to design ships.

We could submit the designs and have the eve community vote on them. As long as we knew what ship class we were competing ahead of time. interested participants could design it.

I think that a lot of us would love something like this.

They did this a while back (2010)

It's where the Tornado comes from.

Starting with re-designing the Caldari antena

CCP - Building ant hills and magnifying glasses for fat kids

Not even once

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

I wouldn't mind seeing another contest like that.

There are some pretty creative people playing this game and it's a good way to allow them to showcase their design ideas in one place. Also a great way for CCP to find some fresh talent for its design team.

It's a win/win, really.

I'd like to point out that all of the ABCs came from there, not just the Tornado, but the Tornado won the main prize.

Would be cool, the Tornado is one of the coolest looking ships in the game. The Oracle is pretty nice too. But I'd rather have the voting done by the EVE art team only. The taste of the general public can not be trusted. Also, if they were to do this again they obviously shouldn't rely on the taste of the people who work at Deviant Art like they did originally...

I have no idea what to fly, so about 100 more ships would really help me out

Especially if you count each possible combination for the t3s as a different ship.
