Yes! Please do!

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


Yeah, Creodron ships need more gold/bronze instead of grey + dark grey.

I avoided training into command ships because I dislike the Ferox model. My other leadership alt is able to fly command ships and will be flying an Eos once these changes come out.

I do not have any command ships that I actually fly: my off-grid-boosting is done through T3 hulls.

The only hull change that I have complained about so far was changing the Helios from the Maulus model to the Imicus model.

I have been wondering why most T2 ships are just reskins or the T1 counterparts since I started playing. Only stealthbombers have different models?

Why not just follow the that direction with all T2 ships? Slightly altered model of the T1 counterpart instead of a simple reskin.


You may not have noticed, but that's exactly what they're doing; it takes a while though. Right now they're working on Marauders; CCP BunnyVirus insists that the current Paladin skin is just a placeholder until the real one is finished. In the meantime, a few examples would be to compare the Tempest and Golem; the Megathron and Kronos; the Rifter, Jaguar and Wolf; the Probe and Cheetah. There are definitely others, but I'm not going to list them here. Anyway, Art has said they are definitely trying to get all the T2 ships remodeled to be slight variations of the T1 ships they're created from and not just simple reskins. They're making it a little more complicated than that though, so expect progress to continue being a bit slow.

But...but...but why? *Dazed and confused*

Why not just wait and make new models like was done for the stealth bombers?

I liked my cyclone with autocannons and you changed that to missiles, I still had the sliep tho and now you change it to a ship that looks just like a fleet cane? why not change the claymore instead, I like autocannons on my cyclone hull :/

What "manufacturing" changes are we talking about? Ships like the absolution are already almost unprofitable even with a bpo. Roll

+1 for attempted style... Straight

but -2 for waste of time and hurting your players. Ugh

If all these ships are going to get remodeled... again... why even change them now? Even if people LOVE the new Flashy Drake, or Iron Man Myrm, you are going to take that away from them too.

All you are doing is hurting people who want to hold onto the past AND hurting those who want to embrace the future.

Just my 2 cents.

Farewell Old absolution with the scary-ish but awesome looking eyes :(

Is there any way for you to return those eyes on the new harbinger model?

suddenly, active tank hurricane.


IT BETTER HAVE A LARGER CARGO HOLD THAN THE CURRENT SLEIPNIR. it's too damn small for ASB fits.

but if you ARE changing the models, at least give them a distinctive physical feature, like an extra solar panel on the cane's back or underbelly.

that doesn't chane anything that I said. if(or should I say 'when') the sleipnir becomes a hurricane variant...

actually, it needs a cargohold expansion, NOW. MAKE IT HAPPEN CCP!

I prefer the Hurricane model over the Cyclone.

I like this change. Big smile

The models are perfectly fine and whilst it's a shame to lose the iconic Sleipnir it's nothing game breaking.

That being said this is yet another case of having the wrong development priorities. New models aren't contributing to the illusive 'long term vision' (which increasingly sounds like a poor excuse for the complete lack of meaningful short-term development), they don't fit the model of 'themed expansions' and it goes without saying that they contribute nothing in the way of new gameplay options.

I would much prefer future dev time to be spent on balance (great work so far with ships), quality of life improvements and new gameplay features (silly mini-games need not apply).

Edit: Actually the new Sleipnir is pretty ugly. This post makes points I agree with.

:( Really? Cmon sit behind it, give it some time and give a really new model not just a retextured old one.

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