If Sleipnir is to keep cyclone hull - change it to missile boat because i dont want to see missile hurricane if CCP follows own idea of different weapon platforms on command ships.
AC Cane is more iconic than AC Sleipnir, especially with recent Cyclone changes. imo.


Err.. Nobody's changing the Sleip to missiles. The Claymore is going to become the missile CS and the Sleip will remain AC.

in that case Sleipnir should get Cane hull.

Opinions are like assholes. Everybody got one and everyone thinks everyone else's stinks.

Yes, please. Some of the ship classes feel almost homogenized after a while, and, while I'm glad that that the art team is working on model alterations for tech two variants as I think that is sorely needed, I'm of the opinion that changing the hulls themselves would go a long way in helping all of the ship models look less outdated. As for people who say that changes such as these would hurt the way we view iconic ships, I find it very strange that ship models as iconic as the Drake, Hurricane, Harbinger, and Myrmidon are not represented in their tech two counterparts.

Please no, Damnation would be very cool though.
I don't like the Drake hull, but it could look cool so I'm okay with it.


The Drake would probably look something very close to this.

Also, a Hurricane Sleipnir would probably look close to this.

aww yiss!

Wouldn't that imply a hurricanir with WINGS like those of a wolf/vargur? That would look so beasty. Would not be great to see that old and familiar sleipnir leave, but it would be a new dawn for CS anyways.

Drake with a cambion-paintjob sounds awesome.
Even shinier myrm sounds awesome.

  • God please don't ruin my sliepnir. If you make that the exception and give the claymore the cane hull (much like you did with going for the navy brutix rather than myrm) then go for it there wont be any objections. New people looking for info are just going to look at the picture anyway not the description.

    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?


    Long time lurker here, but I had to login to voice my support for this.
    The Drake is by far my favorite ship model, and seeing it used for this would be excellent.
    Now, lets bring these ships on-grid so people will actually see them!

    Please fix wormhole combat sites: c1 20mil - c2 40 mil - c3 80 mil - c4 160 mil - c5 320 mil - c6 640 mil

    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.


    why not make the claymore the cane then?

    I was undecided on the sleip but after seeing those mock ups this entire idea gets my +1

    please no, Ferox skin is way more sexy than the drake, it's one of the reasons why i love the nighthawk. Same with the sleip.

    Please keep the Field command ships as they are!

    Maybe change the fleet skins?

  • Shouldn't that read Astarte would use the Myrm hull if you are following the same logic. Field command ships get the tier 2 BC hull -Fleet command ships get the tier 1 BC hull.
