when I started playing, one of the ships in eve that fascinated me was the velator, not because it was that good but because it was different, it was asymmetrical and I liked it allot as it was.
Until someone decided to completely redesign the ship.
I disagreed with the new design.
To me it had no lines that interested me at all.
And I still don’t.
But on top of that I start to realize this new shape looks more like a amarr design then a gallente.
Both amarr and gallente sport smooth lines.
But when you look closely you will notice that amarr uses sharper shapes and gallente more toward organic shapes.
amarr would be a basic circle compared to gallente being a random koffie spot on the table.
And that brings me back to the newly designed velator.
Why was it necessary to redesign it?
And why was it made so basic and non organic?
The shape wasn’t ugly for everyone… atleast not to me.
