I love it! I often look at my ships in space and try to imagine what is inside, where the capsule is, where the crew works. I would love to see this on bigger ships, that might be a few pages in a book.

I was just asking myself what ship to solo into lowsec next and all of a sudden I have a feeling of flying a Comet. Can't explain the sudden urge..

Eve Minions is recruiting.

This is the law of ship progression!

Personally if you want to give us graphical content like this, why don't incorporate it into the flying window that by "zumming" into a ship on grid we can have a pop up screan that can advise what mod's or mechanical adaptations have been applied to the ship. Imagine that i have just scanned the ship to get ship intel. Since ccp is all about making it easier for the newbs why not provide th em the option and they can see the gunnery type fitted to the ship? Now thats content in the ui.

Since they have 3d models, 3d wireframe plus highlighting of additional areas and displaying list would do that thing ok. Problem is with implementation of such feature. Scanner would need visual overhaul to make it 3d window, additional areas would need to be highlighted, and also list would need to be displayed. So from that standpoint it is all a very visual update with zero additional functionality.

Pretty. It would be really interesting to see the larger, especially capital, ships.

Hope that the final result will be available as a pdf and not as a physical book to be shipped from Iceland for a ridiculous price :P

How about putting the images in game into the Ship Tree? (Previously ISIS) instead of the plain outline and 3d model (which are nice btw)...... but cross sections of the ship and although i don't expect them to be super clear and hyper detailed (to stop/protect Copywrite) they would possibly show a more in-depth look into the world of EVE....... a bit like a final polish if you like.

You'd know what would be pretty cool to see? a cg documentary-like video that shows a ship being manufactured...similer to the first minute or so of this oldie

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!


Please do firetail :) and don't forget to describe all the ducktape

Isn't a firetail just an extra sticky ducktape strip that you then use to attach your modules to your pod?

Lol, I would have thought the Moa/ Gila is a closer representation to the firefly, although that's based purely on the outsides of the ships and their approximate dimensions.

(Edit) Although in hindsight when Kaylee Frye (Jewel Strait) starts hitting the engine with a spanner and hammer.........well that just screams Minmatar to me especially since the whole ship is held together with ducktape and paint.

The cheeter reminds me of a super sized speeder bike from starwars, or am I getting confused with the stabber.......

This has subconsciously influenced me I think. I find myself flying the Comet and I have purchased about 4-6 more of them recently as well. This is obviously a great thing! :)

Did we do the shut up and take my money bit yet? YES. Love it. Do more, would love another book about Eve, especially one detailing the "technical" details of the ships. Should start making technical details of stations, citadels, POS's, etc too.

I went and bought a navy comet and then outfitted it with the police skin all because of this.........
