Thrasher is fine as is. It's an iconic ship. Leave it alone.

The New Model Dominix is now one of the best looking ships in the game.

As I spend most of my game-time in one, I am delighted witih it.

Well done CCP art folk.

This is not a signature.

I agree. The Thrasher looks fine as it is. If you're going to redesign a Minmatar ship, then redesign the Rupture or the Bellicose!

The Minmatar ships are clearly in most need for visual overhaul - all cruisers except the recently remodelled Stabber look out of place and more like furniture items than spaceships. So it's a good move by the art department to focus on some of them in this announced remodelling pass. However there are also ships by other factions that could use some love including the Atron-Ares-Taranis, Thorax-Deimos-Phobos, Celestis-Arazu-Lachesis and Osprey-Basilisk lines.

Personally think that some of the Minmatar ships need some updated looks. The ones that are shown in that link are sexy and I love the look of that Thrasher.

NOOOOOOOOO Mah Sabre!

The new 'probe' model could be nice for a Cheetah ... perhaps keep the old model around for the T1 Probe? If that looks like a repurposed derelict cargo runner, that's because it truly is.

But please for the love of Bob -- the Thrasher/Sabre model is perfect the way it is now. If you absolutely must have a defunct T1, keep the streamlined Sabre model the way it is and trash some bits and pieces off for the T1 combat version ..... although probably better yet: don't touch them at all.

What the Minmatar line of ships needs, however, is a serious DUST layer. I haven't cleaned any ship and so far, only my Confessor shows some dust. Why are my beloved rustbuckets not getting dirty? I honestly can't tell the difference between a clean and a dirty Minnie boat ;-)

Implement these designs ASAP please.
They look even more junkyard-esque than before.

Agreed this needs to happen sooner rather than later.

All of concept models are vastly superior over in game models.

Tempest was also iconic hull but was also 1D 3pixel rez garbage that needed to be scraped from game data library good riddance same goes for thrasher there are similar looking vip models that can be used but for love of God don't listen to blind people and go ahead with an update.

You choke behind a smile a fake behind the fear

It took two years for the new Dominix model to make it into the game. I still hope that we'll see the new Stilletto and the Probe before end of 2017, because they're awesome.

I just found out about the Thrasher redesign (I'm slow), please for the love of god DO NOT use:
http://content.eveonline.com/www/newssystem/media/67315/1/07_THRASHER.jpg
this design.

These are fine, if you really NEED to redesign perfection.

Also, please have the solar panels/fins go back like the current Thrasher, not forward like all these concepts.

Loving the new Domi design.

Class act CCP, class act.

Your art work is getting better and better

While it's a long time after these designs were posted, and I'm a relatively new player I thought I would still comment.

As a new Minmatar player:

New Stiletto looks better than current.

Not a fan of the current Probe, nor a fan of the new. To my mind, the proposed new Thrasher looks more like a science and discovery vessel that the Probe is meant to be. While Minmatar should perhaps looked slapped together, the current and new proposed Probe just don't look 'sensory' enough.

The "Sabre" variations of the new Thrasher look much better for the actual Thrasher design. Why - because they look more armoured and warlike. Even if shield tanked, a vessel of this nature should look threatening, especially for Minmatar. When I first saw the current Thrasher, I noted the 'kind of' face on it and thought that was a bit silly. But having player the game for a while now, and having used a Thrasher, it actually seems appropriate. It's a newbro's low level killing ship, a ganker's cheap throw away vessel of doom. If anything, the 'face' on it should made more pronounced, not lessened, for the shear terrorising aspect of it. I could even imagine Thrasher pilots playing the music to "Jaws" over comm's, just for the bravado of it. It's your cheap piranha, let it remain so in look as well as in deed. Don't take the dragon off the prow of this Viking raiding vessel.

We continue working on redesigns between all the other projects we have going on. I don't have any specifics to share at this time, but if you keep an eye on updates.eveonline.com you'll likely see any news as soon as we share it.

Do you have in plan giving a new skin to the Obelisk, the ugliest freighter? Considering how much time freighter pilots spent looking at their ships, I think the least you can do is to ensure they have a pretty sight.

Workarounds are not bugfixes.

When you don't know the difference between there, their, and they're, you come across as being so uneducated that your viewpoint can be safely dismissed. The literate is unlikely to learn much from the illiterate.
