Dunno, T1 gallente look ok. But T2 suck.

Amarr white used to be fine IMO. It looked like it was spacefaring material. Now, whilst the contrast is nice, the material looks plastic.


Just my opinion, but the semi-matte effects on some of the Caldari ships looks more like plastic than the white parts of Amarr hulls.

It's almost like a third of the ship lost all detail.


We took it through the spaceshipwash, should be far cleaner now.

Speaking of which, Kaalakiota ships are not DELICIOUSLY good. You might want to take a look at some odd white stripes on the Onyx though.

The Confessor looks awesome! I love the geometric tiling on the top. So much cooler looking than the floral junk that Amarr ships usually have. The base color also looks like a slightly darker beige than the T1 Amarr ships... it shows how much better the darker beige color looks compared to the lighter ivory. All T1s should be darkened IMHO.

Also, it looks like the Serpentis ships have become lighter. You're in trouble now CCP. ORE ships look lighter too, but I don't think you'll catch as much flak from those pilots.

But yeah... Confessor... very nice...

On the topic of graphics, Tech two ships should look like what they are: new, advanced ships. so why do so many tech two ships have all kind of dirt and rust on it? the vargur and paladin for example, they have some weathering at their engines, thats fine, but their bow structures are also covered in low resolution dirt and rust. please remove it, for its not suitable for high tech ships to look like badly maintained barges.

Confessor

Pretty Tiling on Roof

Stats

EDIT 1: I foresee a ton of animations on this thing.... engine flaps, antennae, and it looks like the block up front that the weapons mount on might slide forward...

EDIT 2: Yep... in the little preview icon of the ship that you see in the stats picture... you can see some panels on the side spread out... and the weapon rack towards the front also has a long rectangular bright white light on the side. That light does not appear on the rack in the screen shots of the ship because the rack is recessed a bit. When I pan the camera in game and look directly down the nose of the ship I see those lights hiding back there behind some armor plating. I guess in sniper mode the weapon rack comes forward and the ship spreads its "wings".

EDIT 3: actually it looks like the plating along side the weapon rack will retract backwards to expose more of the rack.

I can't actually pilot the ship yet to check animations. The ship isn't available for sale on the market yet and neither is the skillbook for it.

I like most of what I've seen particularly with the t1 hulls. Some t2 ships are a lot worse now, the ishtar for example is very shiney and the textures look really dated. Really the new light green doesn't go well at all with the hull.

So, I just realized what was bothering me about the Khanid ship lines. They're too silvery. The silver sheen is bright, gleaming, and overwhelms the black underlayer. If you look at the ships on Tranquility, you'll see that the 'silvered' portions aren't silver, but instead a middle-gray metallic, more like iron or the like.

Keep our Khanid dark. :(

Creodron colors were traditionally green (see Here), the blue is a relatively recent change.

I prefer the green for sure, it's the iconic color I associate with the ships

holy living christ, all gallente ships are CHROME AND GREEN

I LOVE IT.

The Confessor model looks really cool! Can't wait to see the animations.

But the color scheme doesn't fit into the new Amarr line. Bright hull parts are darker/greyish on the new destroyer - normally deep black engine parts are brighter on the new destroyer. I think the Confessor would look even cooler with the nice new very-bright/deep-black Amarr color scheme applied!

I like the blue Creo Dron color a lot better than the recent green. It also makes the creo drone ships stand apart from their t1 hulls. I thought the ishtar was the bad, the eos looks a lot worse, best thing that could happen in my opinion is if the blue is given back to creo dron. The gallante drones are still blue :)

slimier to how we can view the T3 cruiser with different subs on in the preview mode will we be able to see the different states of the Confessor in the preview window by the time it hits TQ (or ever)
