This is something I've been thinking about during my predesign for the command ships.

I'll start with this disclaimer, we will never feel that we need to make hull designs match the function of every ship. So there's no NEED to switch the hulls on any command ships. This is not something we've decided to do, but it is something we could do and would like your opinions on.

It might be interesting to convert half the command ships into the other BC hull, picking the one that matches their weapon type at the T1 level.

That would (potentially) mean:

  • Eos would use the Myrm hull
  • Sleipnir would use the Hurricane hull
  • Abso would use the Harb hull
  • Nighthawk would use the Drake hull

  • 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?


    Perhaps ccp should create dedicated models for these ships, based on these (or other bc) hulls, rather than reusing the same old drake or myrm hulls that we are always seeing around eve. Kind of like the changes to stealth bombers and Assault Frigates for instance? do the same for HACS and command ships, just to create more variety in ships general appearance. I will use the nighthawk as an example, If they used the drake hull as a base, they could create quite a unique and deadly looking ship. Just a simple thought to make the game look a little better. I'm also 50% sure that there are others who are getting sick of always seeing the same models of ships all the time, having 3 different ships that look identical gets old after a while. some I feel should change to a dedicated model to give us more variety.

    CCP will create unique Hulls for every Ship sooner... or much much much later.

    I guess it's time to provide Viking funeral to my beloved Sleipnir, and putting her Minmatar capsuleer to sleep for a long time. Sweet dreams.

    Considering overwhelming support of proposed changes, my attachement to Claymore hull and dislike of Hurricane one, I don't think I will be flying Sleipnir after the inevitable transgender process. Luckily, there are other ships, safe. For now.

    Sleipnir would still look awesome on a Cane hull




    Besides, the Eos will be pure awesome.

    Hmmmmm... Sleipnir... Now Slurricane... Not sure I like (or the Eos or the Nighthawk).

    In fact the only one that I 'like' is the revolting, putrid, disgusting, patooey Amarr... (role playing, complete)

    Would it kill them to just design a whole new hull? They did it for Stealth Bombers.

    Would be cool to see some new skins, even if its just modified versions of the T1s, and I dont mean a colour change, I mean add some spice! Realistically, the designs could use an update from time to time. In the competitive markets that the EVE universe supposedly has, there would be improvements, changes, and upgrades over time. Not only to systems, ala balancing, but to shape as well.

    With the changes being green-lighted for Rubicon, this thread is now obsolete.

  • No. Just NO. Make two command ship a bit different from each - sure, fine. But really Sleip and Absolution are too awesome as they are to change the base hull.

    Exactly, the Harbinger would look way more nasty in Khanid colors anyways.



    Definitely NOT! The Harbinger is a terrible model for a ship and should not be used anymore. It's full of flaws and glitches on top of that.

    My ridicule, heavy criticism and general pale outlook about your or CCP's ideas is nothing but an encouragement to prove me wrong. Give it a try.

    Confirming I'm the only one in EVE who likes the Harbinger's look.

    That said: while I haven't flown any of the CS before, IMO they look fine as they are. I'll get used to them just fine if they change though; it'll also definitely help in identifying what kind of weapons they /should/ be using without having to refer to the Show Info box every time.

    The current sleipnir looks awesome and has been since I started playing 7+ years ago. The new Hurricane based hull makes it look like a mentally challenged door stop.

    I do not understand one thing to be really honest, why change something that is fine ? Why change something that none is complaining about and not focus your time on more important things, there are still 100 bil ships that are not rebalanced and you want to change the sexy command ship that we know for years. I am sorry but unless you give me a good explanation why you are not focusing on things that needs fixing more i tend to veto it.

    Maybe a salomonic solution.

    When creating an command ship, using an...
    Prophecy bpc for invention and choosing "Absolution" gives out the current model.
    Taking an Harbinger BPC for invention and choose absolution, gives the new model.

    At the end, often in real world, some fighters do the same and look a bit different.

    There are other ships that evolved in two very different variants.
    The combat cruiser split up into hac and hic.




    Of could we get the old model just as an hic version. :D :D :D
