So this is one of a couple of images we've been working on with the awesome artist Will Burns, who's worked with us previously on many projects.

We're currently exploring different ideas to show off EVE's ships and give more intricate detail about them, such as putting together books based on images like this. Do you guys like it, and would you like to see more?

Discuss!

I'd definitely like to see more! It reminds me of the old Star Wars and Star Trek technical manuals which had the little cutaway pictures like that.

Awesome work!

All of my yes as well. Great idea, and can't wait to see cross-sections of larger ships too :D

Books are nice but my house might fall down if I buy any more. Digital access would be awesome, even if it's something you sell. Or posters, the last batch were stunning, but some might like techie style images like this with all the bits labelled.

ed. and postcard sized too. Not plastering EvE posters on my walls without a proper frame (which is pricey), and the card collection stuff doesn't appeal. But medium sized (maybe tablet level) in good quality finish would be nice.

The art is excellent; the flavor text may even surpass it, IMO. If these are to be books, I'm in agreement that a digital version would be nice to see (eventually) on offer.

I would like the ability to toggle off selected elements of the UI so I can actually see the beauty of EvEs ships.

EvE looks amazing but its hidden behind a bloated UI. You have the beta program.. why not give us a minimal UI option ?

It occurred to me while I was looking at the EvE website.. You have 0 screenshots of the game, in fact the only gameplay shots you have is the ''This is EvE'' video which is shown with the UI off.


You want new player retention... fix the UI.

Then new players can actually see the beauty of EVE and not spreadsheets and red xs. And they might not leave after 1 week.

Eve should be playable with just the overview and a nice picture in picture showing what you are firing at. Everything else should be toggle on/off.

This is a capsuleer version of a Gallente frigate, which do not need much crew anyway because of the extensive use of drones. It makes perfect sense for a capsuleer frigate, which is not much bigger than a modern-day airliner, to have no crew besides the pilot.

That is awesome! I'm curious that it seems the capsuleer can decant, but there doesn't seem to be much or any walkable-areas inside.

Crew of One on the statistics refers to the capsuleer? Or is there one baseliner too?

And what about the comet's two drones?


Really though, I love these. More please!

I'm thinking the Comet's drones would be externally mounted. Seems a pretty tight configuration in there.

Awesome artwork! Lol

But... (there's always a but...)

I am divided about adding fantasy stuff to EVE. Already was with the first Art of New Eden book.

Why draw things that are not ingame? Yes it would be cool if our ships had a fusion reactor and a magnetometric sensor suite and whatever... but they don't.

They are three life bars and a few values in a table. They are regularly and magically updated in all of New Eden by just writing different amounts in the table.

Can't put my finger on why I feel it, but it doesn't seems right to make fantasy drawings on what they are not... What?

Actually, they do...

Cool imagery. But why are Gallente ships using Caldari sensor naming schemes? BZ-12 follows the Caldari ECM module naming scheme. https://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/Item_Database:Ship_Equipment:Electronic_Warfare:Electronic_Counter_Measures:Gravimetric_Jammers

Yes, I would like to see more. Much more. More understanding of how tge ship is engineered, constructed, interacted with by the humans. A bridge or cockpit is far more captuvating than a pod but ill take it as the lore is. More details please. What is a typical thukker caravan like? How many ships, how do they interact? Paint, insignia, organizations (is a rebel patrol 3 ships or 20), modules (what does a wzrp scrambler look like), colonies and stations. Details are fuel for the imagination.
