The new caldari paint jobs are excellent, especially the navy ones! Youll be seeing me in a navy scorp when this goes down. I agree about the decals tho, a symbol decal isnt bad but the names of corporations seems odd and distracting. Those corporations should be paying me residuals or sponsor my insurance contracts if Im going to race around with their banner on.

Comet looks like ass. Whoever thought that was a good idea needs to be moved over to customer service, where he can get his dumbass hands off EVE.

the "duvolle labs" written on the side of the astarte or the kronos? it's jsut gross. nobody cares, and it just looks ugly.

also, now that I look at it, the shiny, reflective gold on the new DL gal ships looks way worse than the old gold. Mute it a bit maybe? and then maybe the decals wouldn't clash so horribly.

Noooooooooooooooo. I like the decals, and I love the new gold. Get the Duvolle colours on the Deimos, stat.

Hell, put them on everything. I could look at that blue and gold all day.

you seriously like having "duvolle labs" written on the side of your ship? A DL could look cool. But you really think that, for example, what is happening on the front of the viator looks cool? a whole bunch of the gallente ships have branding on like 6 separate locations. look at the new eris. it must say "roden shipyards" on that thing in five goddamn different places.

Welcome to the Federation, where advertisement and media are king!

Seriously though, even though there are those of you who hate the color schemes, there are a lot of us who love it. The Art director is on our side, thankfully.

I think it would be a tremendous waste of resources to have to go back and undo all the changes they've made. That time could be better spent on game mechanics, rather than pandering to the whims of an unsatisfiable minority.

If the art director didn't make so many dumbass decisions, we wouldn't be so unsatisfiable. I feel like we're back to trying to babysit CCP again.

Eh, I am abivalent. I like decals in general; they add detail and verisimilitude. What the decal happens to be, specifically, I don't really care about. The corp ones are less interesting then the faction or pirate ones I'll grant you, but they're not that bad. And I think it's a nice nod to the fluff. I like little touches like that that weave together the milieu.

It's a transport ship, I can think of no more fitting a place for a corp logo. :P And really, it should look as dorky as possible Blink

It's got one "Roden Shipyards", and three of those funky legless Rs. Probably too many, I'll grant you; especially when they're clustered so close together. But it's not a disaster.

The Kronos gets it just right, I think. Though maybe I'm blinded by all that bling Blink

nah bro i just love flaming. it's ******* great. that's not to say that you aren't ******* annoying/stupid, just saying that flaming/trolling is excellent fun.

also, i know it's already too late for a change... i guess i could learn to live with it... particularly because when they add decal customization those will be where the customs ones go and so we actually probs WON'T have to get stick with the adds for forever. I don't remember where they said that part of getting everything onto V3 was so that they could add decal functionality.

Alright fine, you're too addictive to quit. I'll reply again!

Yes, you're correct. That's where you'll be able to add corp logos, maybe alliance logos (doubtful) later. This whole V3 project should allow us to reskin any ship we want to something different, I think. I'm not entirely sure how they will work it, but I bet everything except T2 ships can get reskins, maybe even custom colors.

They've talked about the custom skins a lot ever since last fanfest, where they even show off a Primae with a corp logo on it's wing. I think it was the art panel, it's on CCP's youtube account.

Anyway yeah, the V3 project will allow us custom* skins and corp logos, not exactly sure how it'll work, whether through Nex or not (I hope it's the not).

I think any ship would be customisable, and what we see now, the colour schemes and corp logos is just the default skin and default corp logos that we'll be able to replace.

*Custom skins made by CCP, which the player will be able to pick and hopefully mix.

the maelstrom still "features" the light cone glitch with one of the light cones of the bigger windows in the middle and the big thruster is still "unused".
most of the minmatar t1 ships do not seem v3'ed at all.
i like the new pirate themes though :D

ALL the ships are going to get retextured. They just have not had the time yet to finish.

I haven't tested the Occator out yet, but the Viator is invisible on my computer and I can't zoom in to it while in space or in station.
System info upon request. Other than that,


SWEET JESUS I LIKE MOST OF THE GALLENTE SHIP SKINS


Especially the Ishtar and Proteus. Both are subtly, but significantly improved, and look a bit less campy and a bit more dangerous.

Tech 3 cruisers got a skin update too? It didn't look like the Tengu did.
