The Sleipnir shouldn't have its hull swapped around. Can't you make an exception and turn the Claymore into that instead? You've done it for Gallente with the navy battlecruisers, before.

Hurricane hull is a better looking gunship than the claymore hull will ever be Pirate

I am currently away, traveling through time and will be returning last week.

Brought nighthawk due to ferox hull, am not impressed. Massive dislike!
Mea Culpa.

While they are being more distinguishable from their fellow command ship it uses up the same ship model as the regular harbinger/navy harbinger and so forth for all the combat battlecruisers, but with a different skin.
Why not wait and create an all new design?

Very good point, unique hulls > reskins

However in this case I forgive the Art Dpt, because of ::Myrmidon::

Yes! Please do!

Though to be honest, the CreoDrone skins on a whole are pretty non-descript compared to the normal ships.

I like it. Always makes more sense lore-wise when you aren't changing weapon type between t1 and t2

More posts!

One of the changes we were investigating for Odyssey 1.1 but had to drop due to time was adjustments to the models of half the command ships. The goal would be to move them over to hulls that match the T1 combat BC that shares their weapon type, creating some more variety, opening up options for the art guys in the future, and making the differences between the command ships more intuitive.

This is something that first got discussed by us in this Features and Ideas thread. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive but obviously there are strong feelings about a lot of this stuff. The Sleipnir in particular creates very strong feelings for me.

The plan is:
  • Absolution becomes a Carthum Harbinger
  • Eos becomes a CreoDron Myrmidon
  • Nighthawk becomes a Kaalakiota Drake
  • Sleipnir becomes a Boundless Creations Hurricane

  • This change would affect the visuals of each of those four ships, as well as manufacturing and invention for them. For that reason I want to get it announced as early as possible.

    This change would not affect the stats or bonuses of the ships at all. Any changes to those are an entirely different discussion.

    Here's a gallery of screenshots I took of the new graphics from our internal test server.

    I know this is going to generate a lot of strong feelings due to nostalgia and I share many of those feelings. However I truly think these new versions look amazing and that in the long run this is a change that people will look back on as an obvious positive.
    Let us know what you think.

    The only one there thats even slightly acceptable is the Myrmidon because its vertical thus cool.

    All the other ships are awful, why make this change if you're not going to make any real model changes?

    The old absolution looks a thousand times better and more menacing.

    The Nighthawk looks ******* awesome with the ferox hull, it just looks boring like that.

    The Sleipnir.. Well that just looks like the fleet cane really...

    If these were significantly remodeled i'd see why a change would make sense but.. Ugh.. you're basically downgrading all of these.

    I want to train Commandships so hard right now. LOVE IT

    T2 Myrm is dream come true! Makes much more sense for a drone boat too, same goes for the Nighthawk/drake.

    looks a lot like...

    Hurricane Fleet Issue

    I mean, I'm not fond of the "space camo" to begin with, but at least the previous Sleipnir had dark grey camo.

    But... Sleipnir... noooo.

    The hurricane looks like it's shoved together, it just doesn't fit with what people expect from a command ship.

    Sad because the Eos Brutix model skin is bad ass, was always one of my favourite looking ships.

    Will be strange to see Abso and Sleip as different hulls.

    I'll say it again: the new hulls look AMAZING and it'll be wonderful to see some less-than-used hulls more often in the field!

    I knew I would love the myrm model Eos - it was a given.

    But oh holy heavens dat Abso. Was not expecting that level of awesome. Very very nice looking ship
