ESCORT CARRIERS COMPILATION by Kero40 ESCORT CARRIERS COMPILATION by Kero40
Here is a compilation of my 4 entries for the 'Create a Starship' contest for Eve Online. You can view each entry individually in my gallery.

I have chosen to work on a single ship class with a variation for each of the Eve online races. The classe is 'Escort Carrier'. Sub Capitals ships without jump drives. geared towards drones deployment or maybe even fighters and being mostly thought out for fleet support.

I would LOVE this ships to be added, a high sec escort carrier would be frelling awsome on some missions and general pvp.

I'd say something like this would have *at least* deserved a special mention of some kind. You not only made some great looking ships, but you also:
A) Invented a brand new ship category (maybe these could have been some kind of hi-sec carrier?)
B) Made one for each race
C) Did I mention they look great?

i would fly the gallente one if it uses carrier style drone use no guns, up to 10 or even 15 drones and the ability to carry a full flight of lights, mediums, heavies and sentries

You know, the Gallente carrier designs always bothered me. I felt that they never really fit in. Your gallente escort carriers bridges the gap beautifully, and brings the existing gallente carrier designs into the overall gallente feel wonderfully.

THIS is one of the best entries in this contest, and it should've made it to the semi-finals. My god, many capsuleers (including myself) would jizz themselves if they were able to fly these ships!!

I love how they look. Despite fear from others on forums about something like this, I would see nothing wrong with a drone boat that could hold a few fighters. Limited bay for them, capable of deploying say 1 fighter per some random level. Wouldn't be overpowered but offer a real great level of cool!

Houm... BC-sized carriers.... like some kind of super Arbitrator class, fit to doing Level 4s w/heavy weaponry? They could somehow be drone ships for the races w/o a Dominix... but can't see them sporting fighters, though.

I like them,
Except the name on the Caldari one,
'Sparrow' I understand you wanted a shorter name than Sparrowhawk,
I know of one... Shrike.

[link]

"Shrikes are known for their habit of catching insects and small vertebrates and impaling their bodies on thorns. This helps them to tear the flesh into smaller, more conveniently-sized fragments, and serves as a cache so that the shrike can return to the uneaten portions at a later time."

This is most possibly the most cohesive entry of all as many people have been requesting the very type of capability.

Please CCP! Choose these four! As the two more important entries (Caldari and Gallente) look awesome! Also, we need ships like these. Great work my good man

The smaller size and ability to not rely on a cyno would make for some interesting implications in 0.0 sec. I'm already saving in hopes that they get chosen :D

Possible problem, one of the rules is:
*Entries may not use any watermarks or distinguishing artist marks (such as signatures);

Doesn't this include artist names?

Looking over the rules, I do think that it counts as a distinguishing artist mark. Are you going to replace/resubmit?

You match the art styles rather well and these are ships we dont havein game yet. Would like to see the rest of them get thier own individual presentations.

I would like to note that the sparrow is the name of the unused command caldari frigate but hey if its not in game yet who says you cant use the name?

:iconkero40:
Kero40 Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2010
Thanks!

Each ship has its own presentation , in my gallery.
I never heard of that caldari command frigate! Any i dea were i could see images?
At first i wanted to name it "Sparrowhawk" but i hesitated...

novafox Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
it looked like a bantam in night hawk colors but those pictures arent around anymore either and i think they dropped the idea of command frigates which is really sad considering frigate packs would heavily enjoy having that type of ship in thier presence.

:iconkero40:
Kero40 Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2010
Perhaps T3 frigates will be able to take that role? :D would also seem more reasonnable imo to have a destroyer class command ship.

I was also planning on submitting an escort carrier, but your stuff is just so much better.

Well I still have some other concepts so its not a big loss. Either way I hope that you get first prize.

Thx!
I would hope so but they wouldn't have a jump drive and maybe wouldn't be able to dedicate fighters to other people.
I thinks it's best to let CCP balance the roles and bonuses etc... If they are interested in these designs anyway! ;)

I love these designs and the concept is great. I could see them with a short range jump drive, able to use gates, can only field 5 fighters (no drones), and and enough of a maintenance bay to hold 5 frigs or 2 cruisers. Also they should be able to jump to covert cynos :D Would go great to support black ops battleships. \o/

You got my vote!

:iconkero40:
Kero40 Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2010
Thanks!
I think giving them a jumpdrive would make them a bit long to train for. But the ability to jump to covert cynos would be amazing. Certainly overkill tho :D!

Where is a minmatar duct-tape that almost looks like a fully built ship. Which for minmatar is preposterous
Reply
:iconkero40:
Kero40 Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2010
Hahaha i agree.... But since minmatar are not longer under amarr slavery they are recently managing to build entire ships. I guess we should get used to that ;)
