EVE Online Contest - Atlas by Abyssal-Specter EVE Online Contest - Atlas by Abyssal-Specter
Another entry into this fun contest.

more info:

Something of a science vessel, having powerful sensors and advanced technology needed for the exploration and surveillance of planets, uncharted systems and enemy territories. Focusing on sensing/tracking/navigation modules with a monstrous computer, it can cover great distances and quickly inspect its surroundings.

Although a science ship, due it to the potentially hazardous nature of it's missions it is not lacking in firepower or defenses. It can easily survive small engagements alone, and escape before real trouble arrives, and can serve as a capable, if not improvised support ship when with a fleet. The Atlas possesses great energy capacity for intensive warping, and utilizing high-end modules for long durations, but lacks the sturdiness to contend with larger or more numerous ships for very long.

Or something like thatů I'm just glad to participate and see all the other awesome designs.

Very very cool. I made a version like this, but it was a cross class ship. Fighter/Scout/Carrier style with landing/take off capabilities.

this looks like a ship that works better in the PC game HOMEWORLD. If they made a Homeworld 3, this ship would be perfect.

Shouldn't have made it into the finalists. No offense, but this is not EVE Online it looks like it belongs in Star Trek.

I like the ship design but I'm not sure where it would fit in EVE Universe, it doesn't look like any of the existing ships in any way :)

I was aiming at the organic and generally unorthodox shapes that some Gallente ships have, but I also kind of went off on a tangent from that I suppose. People seem to have differing opinions on whether or not it would fit in EVE, I certainly meant for it to, I'm not completely sure myself, but I do appreciate your input on the matter. Thanks again

After some thought I thought of a purpose for a hull shaped in this manner. Minesweeper. Though we don't currently have mines in game (they were outlawed in the Yulai Convention about 4 years ago). the most efficient minesweeper would be something with a bonus to smartbombs. A rounded hull would lend itself well to this I think since a smartbomb in EVE deals damage in a radius of the ship.

Bonus for such a ship could be decreased capacitor cost to run a smart bomb as well as an optimal range (radius) bonus to the smartbomb as well.

It is a ship type we don't have and a role currently not filled by any other ship if it had smartbomb bonuses.

Though I suspect such as ship would become a favorite of kamikaze pilots and pirates in low sec for gate camping.

Its rounded hull would resemble Gallente ships more than others.

Hmm, very interesting. It sounds cool to me, if there were still mines, though I've never used smartbombs myself, but it seems like a decent purpose if not excessively abused. I want to thank you for putting so much thought into it.

Mecinia Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2010
You're welcome.

I still have bpos for mines, just you can't build em anymore :(.

I'd love to see them reimplemented.

Smartbombs are still used a lot particularly in low sec warfare where pirates sit on gates with them. Also a common weapon during the yearly Hulkgeddon events for Kamikaze pilots.

Used properly and timed right they can destroy missiles too. Commonly used to wipe out drones too. I've seen folks charge into gatecamps with smartbombs going too.

If you build it someone will use it :)

Yeah, mines where removed before I started playing, I heard that it was because they never expired and caused a lot of lag, that and there were problems with putting them in empire, like you if laid one, and no one hit it for months, you'd suddenly have concord after you. But i do think they'd be pretty interesting if they could be implemented with any issues.

This ship doesn't belong to any faction of EVE, it's more likely to belong to the Protoss of Starcraft.

The mesh was smooth, but the edges you see are a consequence of the vectorized render. I kind of though that it helped show some of the shapes a bit better, so in the end it was intentional. Thanks by the way.

This is a great looking ship design for a hi-tech exploration specialist class. Slick and asymmetric. I imagine it being what the SoE might come up with using T3 stuff. Congrats on the semi-final selection!
