A guy called Guard and some guys with cameras made a video about the redesign of all four Rookie Ships and the process the ships have to go through to make it into the game. Then the guy wrote a little dev blog with some cool pictures to go along with it.

Check it out here!

Wonder why you would blur out one of the cards on the wall at the beginning. Bit moot since you forgot to blur it out before CCP Guard starts talking. I think it says "Bomb" for those that are wondering.

Still, I for one welcome our new model overlords.

The Missile Launcher hardpoint on the Gallente ship is intriguing... Do tell.

Other than that... Excellent work. Though I strongly dislike the Minmatar sticky-up solar-fin things - they seem poorly placed to me.... Have they always been there?

Why did they let CCP Tallest film CCP Guard in the beginning there? It's really noticeable.

What are you hiding there in the "Texture Baking" Category on the wall???? (0:15-0:23)

When I see the word "design", the first thing I think is always game mechanics and stats-rebalancing. Not "art".

They look much better. The Velator is still a bit meh though.

Beautiful, beautiful ships. Quite possibly my favorite part though: official Places Where Things Go! No more zooming in to my ibis to wonder idly whether that little door-looking thing is a cargo hatch, a drone bay, or if one of the asset guys just had a cold that day. No, now we have schematics!

Yes the Reaper always had a vertical "solar-fin" CCP just added a second one, honestly I have mixed feeling on the ship. Over all I like the design of the ship but it looks sturdier then the original and more symmetrical, I personally feel that when I player get's their first Minmatar ship they should fully understand how much duck take was used to keep the ship flying.

The Reaper concept looks like a joint effort between Gallente and Minmatar to redesign the old ship (nothing wrong with that as I like the concept.)

I wish I still had my first rookie ship :(

I think my first ship after the Ibis was a Merlin. I was like "Whoooaaaaaa this thing is SO powerful!" mainly because it could fit more mining lasers.

I have a specific comb for my beard.

CSM got a sneak-peak at the new ships in December. They look great!
