Changing skins


I was poking around on Singularity, the test server, when I noticed that many of the ships have been re-skinned. Some of the changes are dramatic, such as the Lachesis shown here.

The Lachesis finds itself in an entirely new wardrobe.

Others, such as the Crow pictured here are not so dramatic but definitely have more grit and less cartoon.

The Crow keeps its colors thought the markings changed.

I didn’t do extensive cataloging of the ships that had been changed, but here are a few before and after shots.

The Atron now bears a Gallente insignia.

Subtle changes to the Arazu give it a real, gritty feel.

The Keres sports a darker, more sinister look.

Sadly, some ships have lost exciting features — for example the Hawk lost it’s spinny bits, and we all know how important spinny bits are. But overall, things are looking great.

No more spinny bits!

I didn’t see any models that had drastically changed (at least not any that aren’t widely publicized), but the Ishkur’s thruster configuration and front bits have been altered.

Some bits around the Ishkur hull have changed.

  1. ishkur now branded Kreo-Dron – very cool.
    Isn’t the new Raptor/Crow model confirmed in the expansion yet?

    • All of the Assault Frigates (actually, I think all of the T2 ships) have the logo of their creator. In the Hawk pictured above you can probably barely make out the “Lai Dai” logo and you should see the prominent DL for Duvolle Labs on the Keres. Much more detail.

      It’s been a few days since I was on Sisi, but you can see that they’ve re-skinned the existing Raptor, Crow and Condor so I’m not sure they will really roll that change in.

  2. I hadn’t heard about the Hawk losing its spinny bits! :( I’m actually strangely sad about that… I really need to get out more.

  3. Parity!!! Come back to the light!!
