Battleship Lammergeier by TranquilRuins Battleship Lammergeier by TranquilRuins
This is my Battleship submission to the Starship competition.

This is now the FINAL version.

Well this looks like a Caldari Battleship. You can fit a full compliment of either guns and missiles launchers.. and has many bonuses like 100% increase to torp & cruise missile damage & 80% increase to shield hardeners etc. :)

I was worried that the Caldari had used all the bird of prey names but lucky there was a couple left.
Lammergeier - a huge bird , a vulture, and feeds mostly on dead animals and apparently it drops fresh carcass bones on rocky ground from on high to feed on the marrow =)

The name Lammergeier literally means 'Lamb Catcher'.

Anyway, I love the ship I've made (wish I could upload the sketchup file for the competition too, not because of detail but because its always better to see the whole thing than just shots :) I hope to see it in game.



For the CCP contest version (which is updated a little bit to show some additional details and the added side drone bays though the ship is in a different light and setting):

Hmm i like it, and i'd deffinantly fly one. But i feel like CCP would have to rebalance the fitting and bonuses

Thanks, yeah more likely it would be nurfed quite a bit. I wish EVE Online allowed play created ships to enter the game (for a real $ fee of course!)

Ok so I've finished the VERY updated Lammergeier presentation for the new CCP contest. I don't see it yet on the website [link] but hopefully soon =)

I'm happy with the work but I'm not happy I didn't get to finish what I started on, that is a newer version of the Raven :( ...

Hehe thanks I saw it when I just check the eve site forums - thanks for posting this though NeutralOne :) I'd hate to have missed this. Will probably update the above Lammergeier a little, nothing major just a few more details on the 7th view and fix up the presentation background a bit.

Here is hoping all goes well :)

Really like this design, somehow I missed it when I browsed the submissions.

I think I would have made the prow (the central piece that juts forward) a little less massive to better balance the ship, but that's just nitpicking :)

Great ship, would have loved to fly it ingame :+fav:

Thanks :) I have found that I missed a few ships here and there way after the contest period as well ;)

I may go back and and adjust the ship (if there is another competition) but didn't consider making the prow any smaller - though you never know, once you start mucking around again, anything is possible :) I actually made the bridge part slightly bigger during the contest due to comments heh

I would have loved to fly it too :(

The wing design and the general profile of the ship reminds me of the SSV Normandy SR1, from the Mass Effect series. Very nice.

If these so-called "judges" don't do a re-vote on the semi-finalist entries, they WILL be hearing about it.

Nobody is happy with the selection, at all.

I'm kinda hoping CCP just pick an extra 15 more and decide from the total 30. At least we are sure to get a better result. Though just having one extra ship put in EVE? Really should be one for each race at the least & 1 new ship for each NPC race.

Though I reckon they'll just stick to the DA choices :S, I'm glad I ran out of time to make any more submissions though.

Very fantastic. If this wins, being a Caldari pilot, I'm buying it. :P

You could've named it after a mythical beast!
But I like the name. Very...intense and predatorial.

TranquilRuins Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks :) Hopefully if it wins I wonder if I get a freebie? :)

Now there is a thought.. if you could, submitted custom models (or subtle changes to standard models) as part of an EVE Online account feature... using any of the current EVE ships as a stats/powers basis (changing that would be too dangerous :).. sounds like too much work reviewing that process - but you never know it could work

I love this ship, can't take my eyes off it.
It must win! *_*
(I even named a ship after it uheheh) ^^"

Do you have more shots of the lammergeier available? In your gallery perhaps?
I would like some for my desktop background. =)
Reply
:icontranquilruins:
TranquilRuins Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks for that, I know what you mean :)

I would post more shots just in my gallery but I think that would probably void the entry (having it in special groups is ok apparently) - I'll should try to do some non-textured shots of it before the competition is over (as a submitted piece).

Btw I never textured the model, only painted onto of a plain render - if DA/CCP choose it then CCP can give it a proper texture job.

Oh and trying to work on a MK.II version currently as a seperate entry - hopefully I finish it before close time.. not sure

May I ask how you made this graphic?
I have the ship as a desktop background now. ^^;
But I couldn't help but notice the amount of detail you've put into this ship. How did you do it?

TranquilRuins Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Awesome - I haven't made a desktop background for myself yet for my screen size but I probably should I keep looking at it far too often. Not getting any more work done :S

I made ship in Google Sketchup, just did a basic screencap and painted over it in Photoshop Elements 7.0 .. yes so poor I can't afford the full version hah (most of the work is brush tool and line tool, and layer options like overlay etc). Started off in the wilderness, so to speak, working it out but just kept working on it till you can't stop looking at it with a smile usually helps :) Oh and using a Medium WACOM drawing tablet..Intuos4 .. thats helps big time. Would love a large one though!

I've made the background 1920x1080 ^^ I could send it over if you like? Don't know how though

I didn't even know it was possible with those programs ^^; I am going to try some for myself :) Any good tutorial sites you could recommend?

I used to make concept art in the past, but your ship made me going again ^^ thanks!

Hey share with everyone, just upload a link to the EVE Online forums or a seperate website called eve files (google it :)just give me a credit and alls good... though I'm working on changing the current submission bridge a little to be slightly larger and nicer.

Well you could always use gimp (freebie software) I've used that for the Drakes End wallpaper.

Tutorial sites? not really - just work on something - figure out the tools with experimentation - if you get stuck, google it or youtube it :)

..and happy to give you incentive! I know I have the same issue ;)

I can only agree with you and cross my fingers :) If it actually managed to be first place I'd obviously expect CCP would make it more in fitting (extra details) with the Scorpion etc.. damn if only all three prizes had their ships go into the game :(

:iconglazdon:
Glazdon Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well to be honest I think that a set of battleships should be put into the game. We have your Caldari Lammergeier, Polarlex's Gallente Aquilon...now we just need a Minmitar and an Amarr (Unless you count the 'Will', but I don't like that one much).

Admittedly though I LOVE Kero40's idea of small escort carriers too. There are really a lot of ships that should make it into the game, and I don't doubt that the ship creators at CCP will come back here for inspiration at the least if not to pull another ship in altogether.

:icontranquilruins:
TranquilRuins Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I believe all ships (aside from the Scorpion) should be upgraded and many new ones put in as well, I don't think many would disagree with this :)

For the Minmatar I quite liked the FREEBORN by enmisery-comodidad .. the apart from the whole ship looking so so hot it seems to have armoured type sails.

Aye CCP will gather many a good idea from here. Wish I was doing this work wise, making ships for a living would be heaven.

Nice. Looks Caldari yet it is nice and symmetrical. I agree with the comment about the wings though, the forward pointing ones look too thin for Caldari. As a fellow Sebiestor I understand the attraction to flimsy bits, but Caldari are wimps and like their thick blocky shapes. The side view looks like a rifle. Fitting for Caldari.
