The universe of EVE Online is outstanding with its unique art direction capturing both the dark and dangerous aspects as well as the beautiful vastness and exciting promises behind the stars.

This wonderful universe is ever evolving with new graphics, new ship models, new designs. This time we see a new Dominix scheduled for August, a redesign of several Minmatar ships, and the Gallente Tech-3 Destroyer "Hekate".

Additionally, we see the current Art Director, CCP Huskalr, passing on the torch to the new Art Director, CCP Jörg. CCP Huskalr is moving on after 15 years of dedicated, passionate and most successful service to CCP and the EVE Communtiy. Thank you, CCP Huskarl, for all the work and for the beauty of EVE!

Please check out the concepts and images in the latest dev blog The Dominix, Work In Progress And A New Art Director by CCP Jörg.

First, with 20 Quafe Domi SKINs in my pocket. Lol

I really, really like the circular side centerpiece... piece - looks a lot more pronounced in the new work. The underneath of the ship sports a nice engine, mmm. Cool

Also, confirming that both the Stiletto & Probe are now OP - would the model also apply to the Slasher, or is it a part of the direction to make Tech 2 ships aesthetically unique? Smile

I like the the new designs! I am just not sure, if it's a good idea to do more than a minor facelift on a ship as iconic as the thrasher/sabre. Personally, I'd rather have it left as is ...

Sorry bro but I really don't like the new thrasher. Please keep it more true to the original.

When it comes to the stiletto I have always liked the hangglider look of the original but I like the new one too.

those minmatar designs look awful lol

Trasher is one of the most iconic ships in the game and the new design is totally changing it to some mini loki with weird bits hanging all over the place booooooooooooo

Please for the love of some Norse god don't ever touch the Minmatar's wingy bits! Remember what happened the last time you touched the Minmatar wingy bits?

The new Dominix is great.

Stiletto and Probe: Very Good!

But I love the Thrasher as he is now. I don't know why it should change.

New Domi - Yes Please!

New Thrasher - Do not want. Much ugly, very dislike.

Cerberus - eh.... I like the longer nose better.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

I tend not to like redesigns. Still wishing for the original Ishkur with its swirly antennae Sad. And the Domi never bothered me. But thanks for fixing the Probe.

As for the Stiletto, just why? Anyway,

Please leave the visual model for the Claw the way it is. But do change its only two mids.

And while you are at is give the Hound back a shark dorsal fin.

edit yeah and what is wrong with the existing Thrasher model? Who makes these decisions? And why have they not prioritized the Imicus?

CCP, there are off buttons for ship explosions, missile effects, turret effects, etc. "Immersion" does not seem to be harmed by those. So, [u]please[/u] give us a persisting off button for the jump gate and autoscan visuals.

Dominix, Stiletto, Probe redesigns - awesome!
Thrasher redesign is rather controversial. Minmatar have other ships that require redesign ASAP - fugly low-poly stern Rupture, for example.

Loving the new Mini designs!

New thrasher FWARRRRR!!!!!! Can't wait to see it covered in 200mm AC's :)

New Trasher looks Caldari to me... Take off the solar panels, and change the color, and you have a new Cormorant

Other than that excited to see these finally come around. I have been patiently waiting for the dominix we peeked at to finally become reality.

btw, you should totally give the stilleto an animation where the wings fold down in warp. like swooping bird of prey.
