CCP has recently announced the new Art Director for EVE Online. CCP Jorg introduced themselves as well as provided an update on the visual redesign of the Dominix.
As CCP Jorg stated,
“Once we got some breathing room to start on other projects, the Dominix quickly stood out as an obvious choice! It´s by no means a new project, as the design created by CCP Caiman has been ready for quite some time. Unfortunately workload pushed the actual creation of the asset back several times. This is not unusual for us. We usually have some re-designs ready for a 3d artist to tackle when time frees up.
When redesigning the Dominix we thought about keeping the retro-feel of this old warhorse, so the silhouettes and base design aesthetics are quite similar to the original version. Now we finally have a small window to dive into this very much awaited project. CCP Bluescreen is relentless these days building the asset and getting it ready for the texturing phase. We are very excited to see the final version and it will hit your hangars in the upcoming release in August.”
For more information, we encourage you to read the dev blog in full at the EVE community website:
Ryac Sampaio, member of Gladiators of Rage in the RAZOR Alliance, will be hosting a Q&A concerning life in null security space.
Some time ago I moved on from the Uni and have lived in nullsec with 2 different alliances. The learning curve of living full time in nullsec is quite steep and I’ve learned a helluva lot of lessons since moving there. More often than not the hard way. For those of you who may look to move onto Nullsec in future I’d like to pass on the lessons I’ve learned so that you all can enjoy it as much as possible, and also so that you have a much less expensive time of it as I have!!
Duration: Approx 1 hour.
Location: Docked up safely in a station.
What you’ll need:
- Access to the lecture.e-uni channel ingame.
- Access to the public mumble server, there’ll be a channel at the time called “Living in Nullsec”.
- Making Money.
Please note that I’ll be touching on some subjects that will have their own classes (e.g. PI, Fitting) but I won’t be going into them in any great detail.
Hope to see many of you there!!
EVE University is expanding its forums to offer a resource to pilots interested in piloting a capital ship, either now or in the future.
To facilitate this goal, a new forum section has been made public. This will serve as a common area in which to discuss capital ship tactics and fittings.
It is our hope that the EVE community will add to the forum and help expand what is available for everyone in EVE to use as a resource.
To view the forum, check out this link:
CCP has recently published a Dev Blog detailing their continued commitment to improving the wonderful visual experience that is EVE online.
As they stated,
Revamping every* ship in EVE is an intense process, leveraging the entirety of our art team from concept artists to tech artists and programmers to QA. It takes extreme staff coordination and resource commitment, not to mention a lockout of publishing while the work is underway (lest an incomplete asset somehow make it into game without appropriate textures and shaders). Overall, this overhaul of every hull is oeuvre hell.
We’ve done it twice in the last six months….
The result of that research is “V5++,” a complete reworking and repacking of all ship texture maps into a new system which works with new shaders.

During these three days, a University fleet invaded the wormhole system of J235117 and successfully evicted resident corporation Tempest Legion, members of notorious high-sec wardec alliance Absolute Defiance.
Over the course of the operation, upwards of 20 billion ISK in hostile assets were destroyed, and multiple billion ISK worth of loot were donated to University coffers.
A full AAR for the operation is publicly available on the EVE University forums:
OP Homulilly: Aftermath of a weekend
On Saturday 28th Feb, the two best-known Learning Corps in New Eden met up in low security space for a pre-arranged newbro battle!
On the day of the event, the Uni had over 80 ships in the travel fleet, many of them out on their first ever fleet! BNI fielded even more pilots for the fights and also provided a *protection* fleet to ensure no third parties spoiled our T1 fun (thanks for that, guys!), and fun it definitely was!
Here’s a screenshot of the beautiful E-Uni ‘blob’ at the staging system!
We fought several ’rounds’, reshipping quickly in between, popping a crazy amount of ships, and then held a free-for-all at the Sun before helping some folks who wanted to get home quick by ‘pod express’!
In my opinion, we all ‘won’ with this event, and the overwhelming opinion from those who took part was:
“10 out of 10 would do it again”!
Thanks Wilhelm Knicklicht (for the Uni) and Kira Tsukimoto (for Brave) for getting together to get this event set up, and thanks to everybody on both sides for making it possible,
with donations of ships, isk, help or by turning up to fight!
E-Uni are looking forward to the next time!
