true, yet compared to any other eve online ship, it looks more like a Abbadon than any other eve ship... I just sale that usman93 was referring to ships in eve online, and it just made me think "what is the closest ship in eve that i could compare to the Basilisk.

P.S your Work is grate, and i think im gonna give this new game a try, it looks cool, and something that can get me away from eve for a bit.

I played EVE for about 6 months was OK but got bored after a while once I joined a corporation or guild whatever they go by. Never saw a ship with a giant metal serpents head though, or fire for eyes haha

Honestly, this one doesn't strike me as all that impressive. Once you remove the flames and the fangs/ribs from it, it seems to be a somewhat generic hull shape. I could probably find a dozen

Yes it is a generic hull shape but for the function of the ship a hull of this shape was necessary, and what's wrong with a long hull shape? It serves the purpose of housing a ship length cannon inside it whilst also looking intimidating, this is also just an optional skin for the default design which is linked to in the description, also coming up with dozens of ship hull designs and making every single one of them unique is both difficult and dangerous, they often look unique yes but are also often an unreadable mess of shapes and angles, ship design is a troublesome process usually starting with a ton of silhouette designs to separate the easy to read designs from the plain silly.

Agreed, it's basic shape is generic, but man the mouth and fangs, and blades make it excellent. It has "reaver" written all over it.

Er, that comment was submitted early on accident. As I was saying, it's a somewhat generic hull shape, one that could probably be found a dozen times on sites like conceptships.blogspot.net or so (not the same model of course, but reminiscent enough).

Before anyone starts flaming about that, I'm trying to be constructive (though it may be interpreted differently). The actual artwork is good, with far more technical skill than I could ever hope for (to head off the inevitable "I'd like to see you do better!"). However, as my stillborn comment above mentioned, once you remove the flames, fangs, and ribs, you're left with a forgettable rocket-slab. Though as far as paying real money for in-game items goes, it can't be worse than the $70 monocle in EVE.

just to make it clear my opinion is bi est as Phoenix is a friend of mine and we work together on this game for the past 3 years now i think.

but this ship is my favorite capital ship because of how it plays and this is my favorite skin for it, yes its not super unique but who cares? the deathstar was ripping off pingpong balls, no one cares its still awsome. yes this is just a simple shape with spikes flames and fangs...

BUT THE SPIKES FLAMES AND FANGS ARE FREAKING AWESOME!

The ship colour and its maw are nice and the guns (at least I think they are guns) are cool and the flames give this baby an epic look, but the ship itself looks pretty boring. Even the cargo freighter in "Shadow of the Empire" from N64 is more fun =| But hey, they are pirates ;)

With a constant supply of fuel and oxygen they can, also this is a game, its not real.

Normal petroleum flames can't, flames are plasma, the sun is made out of plasma, so if you heat anything hot enough, you will get flames, so thus, flames can survive in space, depending on the reaction they are based on.

flames are made primarily of hydrogen and helium, they're not on fire. But they do contain a bit of plasma, it's not actually fire.

:iconsqueakycaylen:
SqueakyCaylen Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2011
Well what we consider to be flames is plasma, and a sun can be existant out of any element lighter than iron.

To be honest though with you though, the flames would look different in space then on the ground, as in space, flames spread in a spherical pattern, as apposed to the vertical one we see on earth, so you did have some merit in your statement. But like Phoenix-06 said, its not real ^^

Aesthetic flamethrowers, flared panels and ambient lighting on a spaceship exterior. This is unheard of. I f*cking love it.
