I took a look at those ships and thought 'yeah that's a hurricane or drake with a paint job'

Come on surely you can do better than that. They are COMMAND ships for crying out loud!

Those changes could be great if there will be any model upgrades. Old models... I see no sence here

Poor Sleip and Abso. So sad.

The Field Command ships looked amazing as they were. They look so much less appealing now.

R.I.P Sleip, Abso, and especially the Nighthawk.

Literally un-subbing this account after this post. Why is the drake model EVEN IN THE GAME? I swear this art department...

Model changes, fine.

But don't mess around with the names. Corp Prefix X is a terrible scheme because it's harder to target call on coms.

Keep all ship names to one single word, unless it's something easy and established like Fleet X.


They aren't changing the names.

The Sleip is still the Sleip, it just has a Boundless color scheme on the hurricane hull.

Just as a general Minmatar point: Don't we have anything other than space camo? I mean it's fine if I need to set down on a planet and hide several kilometers of starship, but... let's get some creativity here.

The hull change is a good move, creates some distinction and parallelism. But seriously Matari spaceyards. Surely we can do better. Give me something like Australian Maori, some lines or whorls. Tattoos are an integral part of our heritage, and yet none of that is represented on our hulls. Especially as fleet command ships, these ships should be the standard bearers of our people.

Eh. Calmed down, took a new look at the ships. Conclusions based on the actual pictures:

Sleipnir

Expected to hate it. It actually looks decent. Still the one I'm least happy about changing, but that's based on how wonderful the current model is instead of the new one being sub-par. I'll miss it but adapt. I guess I owe a few people apologies for the bounties they got when advocating the change.

Eos

It's fine. The current model is the least good of the lot and the Myrmidon hull has always been the best of the tier 2 group. No real objections.

Nighthawk

Ugh. It's a Drake with a red stripe. How... utterly uninspired.

Look, the Ferox hull is really interesting to look at. The Drake makes up for it by being dull as ****. Painting it black and then spilling a bit of red on it just looks awful.

Absolution

You know what the Amarr lineup needs? More mean space dildos that shoot lasers. How about one in red?

... said no one. Ever.

I like all of these changes, provided these hulls get a T2 makeover like Marauders and Bombers.

To make this change right there should be dependency from corresponding blueprint. After changes Sleipnir with Hurricane hull will be invented from Cyclone BPO.. with magic?
One little "logical" change now leads to another inconsistency.


Also Kaalakiota Drake is broken currently. Let's hope Art Department will fix it before Rubicon.

It cant be just me that would love to see a nod back to the time when the sleipnir had its zebra camo?

im not sold at all on the hurricane model for the sleipnir, though from a stats and weapon based role it makes sense. But i would love the camo from the old sleipnir to go on the new hurricane model.

I like it very much! Especially the new Absolution.

I love that Harbinger hull!!!

But in my opinion the Eos and Sleipnir could get some more love (nicer paintings)

I think you missed this line, directly above the quote you pulled:

Pretty sure the model changes will soon include a bodykit of some sort, though that sleipnirsketch surely does need a good bit more vargur.

Looking forward to the finished work >:)

In general I approve of this idea, but I really don't like the way the Harbinger hull looks, so that particular change is very disappointing to me. I realize that the chances of getting that change undone are low to null, so instead I'm going to focus on making sure my Absolution dies in a fire before Rubicon comes out, it seems like the only way to make sure it goes with dignity.

Don't like it :/ why more and more drakes, canes with only different camo, we've got navy BC's. Command ships need completely new models
