hey ccp,

hey just wanted to first ask how you guys were doing??? i needed to voice some concern over the new models that are on sisi for the FAX capital ships. after watching viideos and looking at them myself. they just look awful in every way shape and form. sure they match there racial components but for christ sake they are just ugly and not remotly appealing to the eye. i know that during large fleet fight anyway most of us are zoomed out to save our grpahics card some stress but these are just awful and i hope you guys re look at these ships.
im not trying to start a war with other players but just trying to let my voice be heard on something. (Cause as ive been told a billion and one times reddit isnt the place)


that being said I F-ING love the new citadels and i can wait to littler my little slice of null with these things <333333333333333333 seriously threse are the most exciting things i have heard about in eve since ....well....i cant remember

hope some of you devs read <33

I think they are ashamed because they dont even show them to anyone, they dont provide pretty pictures. Just like you would try to hide your mutated children not to scare other people.

Calm down miner. As you pointed out, people think they can get away with stuff they would not in rl... Like for example illegal mining... - Ima Wreckyou*

Somehow the Gallente one looks appealing imo. But the rest is really ugly.

Don't like them, make a new model to the same scale and detail keeping the racial design characteristics and FAX characteristics while making them pretty.

In short, they look like flying structures. There is nothing classic about them. They are completely different form what we had to this day, and when I have seen them all, its like "WTF is this". The Amarr one looks like chapel. Shocked

Original look for sure. Very original. Its Art. Just like when you see a flying barn (Hel) in the space, it for sure is an art too. Lol

Oh, yes, they are somewhat resembling mechanical beholders, with a maw widely opened. Lol

I think I have a very fitting word to describe them: MONSTROUS. Cool

Not my cup of tea expected minmatar one to be thinish instead its fat cardbox with yellow eyes..gallente one is passable.

All good things are only good in moderation. There are too many vertical ships now.

I'd say they LOOK like dedicated support ships. Hell, look up most repair oriented naval vessels in the world today, and you'll see they aren't very pleasing to the eye.

When I look at those I immediately think of repair beams all over the place. I'd imagine CCP designed them to look like flying dry-dock-shelters, and that's exactly what they look like.

I like it.

Then: CCP we need more vertical ships. VERTICAL!!1!

Now: oh no not like this !

Edit: I'd have to agree that they look like proper support ships, while they might look somewhat like a mobile station they basically are mobile repair platforms so I think it's fitting. I like the look of them overall but the minmatar one has a few too many sticky-out parts in my opinion.

This post brought to you by CCP's alpha forum alt initiative. Playing the eve forums has never come cheaper.

So why is the Amarr ship standing vertical, but the engines are on the bottom? >>

I do think the Amarr and Minmatar don't even look like ships, more like mini citadels, the Gallante and Caldari at least look like ships.

And why are the engines perpendicular to the flight vector again? Fly Amarr, we go SIDEWAYS!

Just think how the Amarr FAX will look when it is set on the proper plane. It will look like a Station that fell over.

Nah. Dedicated support ships still look like ships. Really, in counter to another poster, I'd expect support ships to have a lot more sticking out parts.

only ever going to please some people, can't please everyone. would have been nice to see them beside another ship to show scale.

Looks like mobile repair stations or something like that. If that was the goal then mission accomplished. If not, welp...
