    Change the claymore hull maybe, but deffo no to sleipnir hull change imo.

    All my life i wanted to be someone, now i know i should have been more specific.

    Although fat chicken looks better than harby, I still approve this proposal.

    Good idea. How about making the different gang link modules change the shape of the ship slightly like a moduler ship?
    EG. Information gang links make the ship have slightly more antenna's
    Armour gang links, make the ship slightly bulkier, like adding extra armour plates

    Or maybe a fleet ship is slightly different to the field ship bit same hulls?

    I like that idea. Different models bring more fun.

    a black harb + a red harb? You are asking if we would want to have those? HELL YES!

    how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

    i kind of agree on the no to sleipnir using the cane model i find it hard to imagine even though it should follow the cane model..
    The sleipnir is quite iconic autocannon ship like the vaga.
    I don't think people would mind an exception in this case.

    'Tech3 ships need to be put down, like a rabid dog drooling everywhere in the house, they are out of line' CCP Ytterbium Nerf missile range into place where is the TD missile change?  ..projectiles should use capacitor. ABC's should be T2 HABC and nerf web strength its still too high

    No, the old models are iconic and should remain as they are.

    The Ferox hull is just way more sexy than the Drake though...

    Why not wait until these new changes the art teams working on than change it now and then changing it again later when we're again getting used to it? Also that seems a better reason to change than doing this now "just because" and upsetting everyone who currently likes the looks.

    Cards on the table, the Sleipnir is the ship I have the greatest emotional attachment to of any ship in EVE. It would look great as a Hurricane, but it would also look DIFFERENT and that makes me feel confused feelings deep inside my heart.

    I also don't think this kind of change would be worthwhile unless we did all four and converted them into those specific hulls, since any deviation would make it harder for a new player trying to get information from their looks.

    So it's kinda an all or nothing deal, which is what makes it such a difficult question.

    i would say , if change models then change all of them , no exceptions, if leave them as they now then , again, all of them

    I'm kind of torn to be honest.

    On one hand the current field command ships are extremely iconic (sleipnir and absolution especially). However, eos being a myrmidon makes more sense, and differentiation in the ship class is good and would serve to illustrate the differences between the rebalanced command ships (like the current HACs)

    I think it would really depend in what form differentiated t2 hulls would come, and how fast. Dont think it would be a huge issue for nostalgia purposes if sleipnir got a badass hurricance model or similar.

    Definitely yes to all hull changes.
    Cause sometimes you are bored to see same ship model for years.

    +1. Sound cool for me. HACs do have different hulls, why shouldn't CS and AS have them? Just imagine Kestrel-based Hawk, Tristran-based Ishkur, not to mention Hurri-Sleip. Wouldn't that be AWESOME?

  • This is the kind of thing that we'd expect many people would have strong opinions about, and since it wouldn't have direct gameplay effects we wouldn't consider it worth doing unless there was some significant community support for the idea that overwhelms the opposition.

    So, hypothetically, what do you guys think?


    This would actually make more sense.


    And speaking about things that makes sense, Caldari also needs some faction hybrid boats, we have enough missile/drone faction boats.
    - frigates: Caldari Navy Hookbill (missile) , Worm (missile & drones) , even tho Merlin is a hybrid boat
    - cruisers: Caracal Navy Issue (missile) , Osprey Navy Issue (missile) , Gila (missile&drones even tho the moa & eagle use hybrid guns)
    - battlecruisers: Drake Navy Issue (missile)
    - battleships: Raven Navy Issue (missile), Scorpion Navy Issue (missiles), Rattlesnake (missile&drones)

    How about some faction ferox/rokh hull boats with hybrid guns for caldari and change Gila to use hybrid guns too ?
