Hunchback by AdamBurn Hunchback by AdamBurn
This is my entry to the EVE online Create a Ship contest, its called the Hunchback and is meant as a corporation based mining ship, it is able to mine both minerals and gas compounds and refine them without the need of a Space Port, this, and its holding capacity, means the ship can essentially strip mine a whole asteroid field and refine the materials on the go, never having to move until the resources run out.
Using "wireless" trading (some skill you get at a high trade experience level) the pilot can trade the refined goods again without the need of a Space Port.

Its big, ugly, but can rake in a lot of cash.

i really like it thought i dont think that eve needs another mining vessel. what it really needs is an intermediett transport. something that bridges the gap between the <50m3 and the >700km3 something in the 100k-200k m3 range. this would be a good look for something like that.

"Aww great...here comes the freaking hunchback...now i dont get no ore >_< XD"

The front of it looks half caldari, half matar. Interesting use too, though not one I'd ever use :)

Very technologically beautiful. XDDD The function and explanation for it and the overall impression is gorgeous in its believableness. :clap: That and...I find it somehow beautiful in a strange way.

Yeah, despite what you say about it being big and ugly, I would say it's quite picturesque, though maybe that's just me being strange. :3

I absolutely had to give you a shout out on this! Thank you so much for submitting such a stellar MINING ship, and I would LOVE to see this make it into EVE as the next mining/industrial based vessel. Wonderful, wonderful work!

Seeing a industrial in so many battle oriented ships is really refreshing.
Only thing that ccp might not want this as all araund miner/hauler since it can create huge increase in script miners. Bu i would like to see a hi-sec refiner/hauler ship tho. I hope ccp shows intress in this design as much i do.

my favorite part of your design is that it had a specific purpose in mind, and the design caters to that purpose.
to be able to mine and refine on the go would be really awesome for hardcore miner

very nice! i like this. and the fact that it has mining lasers and no weapons (saw earlier comments). it reminds me of the pillar of autumn from Halo (another plus XD)

Very nice concept/idea, different than the so many warship posted! The ship is ugly, but it's for that reason I found it so cool: No useless wings in space, plasma canon or other bling bling.

I whis you good luck for the contest :D

I had a feeling you would enter this :P I kinda want to...but I didn't really have any time to make a ship. Had a really nice one in mind too :P

Good ship though ^.^

I personally would like it if the containers were rotated 90 degrees (along the length of the ship, spose it would be the Z axis if you were looking from the front of the ship) Basically so they were wide rather than tall.

The tall thinner design of the containers gave the ship a smaller profile from the front, made it look a bit nicer, side on the containers would be to fat.

I should have read more instead of judging so quickly.
Well, Stations still need some use in mining, so the refining quality surely must not be top notch ;)

:iconadamburn:
AdamBurn Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Probably not but the ship is also intended as a corp ship, not really for personal use, generally due to its methods and cost, it aint cheap.
Reply
:iconsteinie:
Steinie Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2010  Student General Artist
Are there really any ships in EVE that are cheap anymore? Titans are several BILLION, Battleships are at least ten times as much as when I first started playing, hell, even the price of Frigates have skyrocketed XD

Though as a Corp ship, it'll probably be chump change.

With a bit of refining, that'd make for a great Caldari vessel. Or maybe Minmatar if you redesigned the style. I feel like its odd design would really match with the Minmatar.
Nice concept though Phoenix, I really enjoy the abstract thinking.

Most accurate name for this ship. I like it somehow, the colors and especially the stripes give off the feeling of Homeworld.

Wow has a good look. Tho I feel like it looks like an already existing caldari industrial ship...

Also the contest says that you should not use any signatures or artists' mark on your entry so. Remove it fast! This design is just too good to be discarded because of some signatures... :D
