I often see people complaining about some of the asymmetric ship models such as the Atron and the Imicus hull. I like them, they look clear, simple, iconic and go against the “things must be symmetric to be pretty” idea that some people seem to have.
There’s lots of (boring) symmetric ships, pick one of those.
I agree. I fly the hull a lot and it’s just a green (cloaked) blob if I try to recall the design.
Sorry OP i really like the ships you mentioned the atron model looks really sleek i think . The Arazu etc iconic of the space potatoe practicality of some of gallante ship design .
Also sorry Gerard i cant stand the imicus doesnt fit with the gallente asthetic of stylish design imo looks like someone has had to prop something up and seems awkward and ill conceived especially for a Gallante ship .
Other than that id really say none , all the empires have there particular flavour and its represented across there ship stock . Think CCP have done very well in that regard and if it aint broke dont fix it ( except the imicus looks like it might topple over if you banked it too hard )
It’s not the ship itself, but the Megathron Navy issue needs to have a better standard paint job instead of the default “Space Jungle” camouflage.
…or perhaps CCP needs to add space jungles into EVE’s environment.
Each weapon type has it’s own strengths and weaknesses. Yes, drones aren’t locked to damage type but lasers, hybrids and projectile weapons are. Drones can be shot, missiles have selectable damage types yet some hulls have bonuses for specific types of damage… they aren’t meant to be the same. Therefore saying ‘but that other weapon type has X so this weapon type should too’ is not a good argument.
That said, this thread seems to be about ship models, which is something completely different.
Caldari for example, also uses hybrid turrets, like Gallente. Gallente and Amarr are not limited on their drone boats, Caldari and Minmatar are limited on many missiles ships. Minmatar turrets are not limited to one damage type. Caldari are more limited overall.
