I can understand the move to just reskinning existing models - art is usually the rate-limiting step in the development of any game. Creating new models, even ones that are slight modifications of existing ones, is time consuming, and art resources are already needed for the new deployable structures, SOE ships and whatever else has already been planned.

However, if you are going to do something, take the time to do it right. I haven't been seeing a lot of pressure for distinct models for these ships. Sure, I would like to see some distinction between them, visually, but can we have something other than a quick skin job?

stay away from the Sleipnir ><

it's bad enough you removed the guns from cyclones but removing the iconic sleipnir the last bastion of cyclone hull projectile weapons and turning it into a crappy hurricane clone just sucks.

If new command ship models are not on the horizon I approve of this change. Variety is nice and the new ships look great, I especially like the new Sleipnir.

Otherwise a pretty amusing thread. Roll

Clay stays choo-choo? If so, ok.

Not a fan of the Nighthawk change, but if clay stays train all good.

now for a kaalakiota Cerberus please... ?????

and change the T2 frigs and cruisers for more variation please

T3's need to be versatile so no rigs are necessary ... they should not have OP dps and tank

ABC's should be T2, remove drone assist, separate HAM's and Torps range, -3 HS for droneboats

Eos changing to the Myrmidon hull - finally.
Not sure how I feel about the change to the Sleipnir. It will take some getting used to since it's the ship I fly most frequently. That said if you could give it a black paint job like the Claymore it would get my full support. (I think forest camo patterns in space are ridiculous)

Hear we go again................CCP changing things for absolutely no reason whatsoever.

If you wanna change them them comup with a totally new design, not just a different paint job on an outta date design.
Seriously , change for changes sake.......cant you find something better to do?.....go make coffee, sweep the floors etc etc.

This is insane. The Sleip was honestly my favorite look of all time. This change is terrible.

Leave the Sleipnir alone!

At least give it some kind of variant of the Hurricane model instead of just giving us a *slightly* different Hurricane Fleet Issue. Maybe something like what you all did with the Stabber hulls. Increase the whingy bits on the side so it follows the side of the hull making a V of solar panels and maybe one on the top like a sail or fin. I am not an artist or else I'd have drawn something out for you but don't just give us the same old model with a different cammo.

PS: Give it Zebra stripes!

The only issue I have is that the Hurricane, the RF Hurricane, and the Slepnir all look very similar. The faction could use some better painters.

I don't think the Minmatar quite understand what 'paint' is, let alone how to properly maintain the hulls of their ships- said paint would be gone in a few weeks regardless of what it was, leaving you with rusted hulls again.

Then I saw the pictures... What?Ugh Why you do this ? CryCryCryCry
There's barely a new logo... That's all.
