EVE is a vast and beautiful universe. Reimagining this universe and keeping it visually up to date, both in terms of actual asset quality and art direction, has been an ongoing challenge ever since.

It is now time to work on a very iconic ship, the Minmatar Rupture!

Check out CCP Pointy Bits’ blog and explore the process redesigning such a famous ship hull and enjoy the final result: Iconic Ships Reimagined - The Minmatar Rupture

Sorry, we could not find the item you were looking for.

Nice trolling there, Phantom

10/10 troll.

From my understanding it always takes a few minutes until all the web caches are populated with content, sorry!

But be assured, the waiting time is worth it!


(Linus Gorp) #7

We shall see about that


(Catherine Solenne) #8

That’s the problem with Forums that immediately notify users when there’s a new post, eh @CCP_Phantom?


(CCP Phantom) #9

Alright, alright. You convinced me. Let’s go back to the old forums! :joy:


(Catherine Solenne) #10

Hell no, I like the new ones! Clearly the cache invalidation needs to be improved instead :grin:


(Steve Ronuken) #11

Whee! It’s pointy and stuff! I like the look.

Enough from the old to make it obvious, while not too restrained by it.


(Catherine Solenne) #12

Slightly less like a hair dryer, but still distinct. I dig it. Rupture cheapfleet is officially go.

Very cool hull redesign.

One thing I think would be really nice to touch on is how you choose a ship to remodel. For instance, why the Rupture, right now? Are you trying to establish over-arching design direction using certain types of archetypes? Do you pick ships that are more popular, since more people will use them, or less popular, in the hopes they get used more if they look cool?

Also:
WHEN IS THE CELESTIS GOING TO GET REMODELED?!? It is BY FAR the ugliest Ship in EVE Online. It needs a JENNY JONES MAKEOVER pronto!


(Catherine Solenne) #14

What are you talking about? The Celestis is fine. Absolutely no work is needed there. Move along. Perfect hull. Honest!


(CCP CiD) #15

Looks good!


(delonewolf) #16

very interesting overview, it’s definitely a distinct style from Caldari and Gallente. I’m looking forward to seeing these designs in action.


(Xuixien) #17

It still looks like a pirate ship.


(Arrendis) #18

I love the updated Rupture/variants looks. Good job!


(Nana Skalski) #19

One word: imicus

When?


(Morgana Tsukiyo) #20

It looks like a hand gun. Or a hand cannon.

I like it.
