My Rev is going to look so sexy

Now you just need to make a paint job on the Rev like the Sacriledge or Curse so I can have one of both!

Awesome, awesome, AWESOME! LOTS OF EYE CANDY! Now... i hope those particles in the roid bets are not like out old friends that cause my poor laptop to melt, although i run EVE at 60+ FPS otherwise.

Sounds great ... but I hope you pay attention to the performance and resource consumption of all the fancy new rendering pieces or make them optional (e.g. dust in belts).

It all sounds pretty good, but I've gotta say I don't see why the Incursus needed a remodel. It's always been a fan-favorite as far as I can tell, and there are certainly other ships in much more desperate need of a remodel. Also if you want to change what the Ishkur looks like make it look like the Tristan. There should be a real T2 Tristan now that the Nemesis doesn't use the same hull anymore and the Tristan is the Gallente T1 drone frigate now so it all makes sense. Just as with the command ships, the Assault Frigates for each race could use a different T1 hull shape, and the Stealth Bombers are all different looking now to be easily considered their own hulltypes with no T1 equivalent. I think that would be awesome.

YES. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD THIS. Those nebulas in sleeper sites really cause me a ton of framerate drop but the game plays performance issue-free the rest of the time. There really needs to be more specific graphics controls over those sorts of things so that we can tweak the problem areas without having to butcher graphics quality across the board to solve a single issue.

Everything looks amazing, but does this mean the Pos gun buff is pushed back (indefinitely?)

All of the T2 ships will eventually have "new" hulls based loosely on the T1 version... so I don't think there will be any more "slightly modified from the original" T2 hulls anymore.

I'm pretty happy with that turn of events although obviously there will be some T2 hulls that more closely resemble their T1 origins than others do. I rather like the way the Blackbird hull is being handled, but I also like to occasionally see T2 hulls that pay only passing homage to their ancestors.

Also, although the dust and debris are a worry I'm actually more concerned about the lag caused by the new WASD use in large fleet conflicts.

Those lighting changes are perhaps the thing I have been anticipating the most, and will likely be the best upgrade to the overall look of EVE that we have had yet.

With this kind of expansions there will be nothing left to fix or add in a year.

I've been quite absent from EVE the past few weeks, but Tech 3 Tactical Destroyers!? What the hell are those?

Looks like a lot of nice content. Pretty impressed, CCP. Cool

If old trial names are still around, does that mean the character is? I have a 6 year old trial character that was never converted. Can I get him back?

now if only the eagle was worth flying...

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

Nerf web strength, Make the blaster Eagle worth using
