The Arq: Luxury Racing Yacht by AndrewCM The Arq: Luxury Racing Yacht by AndrewCM
The Arq is a luxury racing yacht. Designed by and built by skilled craftsmen with the intent of racing other wealthy contestants on long distance races in the utmost luxury, the Arq was built for one purpose above all else, blinding, bewildering speed. Any captain who could acquire a ship of this caliber however, could use it for many noble or nefarious purposes besides simple sport.

Out of the current semi-finalists, this has the most chance to get through IMO. Simply because of the idea behind it, if they're going to go with your idea - usually gift ships have no armaments and serve no specific purpose (aside from Primae we recently got), so a ship with just speed and looking good has good chances of winning, that's what I think.

I wish that there were more of a 3/4 view to see what's going on. Cool design, though.

I have a number of sketches in a lot of different view I will post after the contest is over. Oddly enough this one kind of showed everything I wanted to show the best despite being a rather conservative view. I wish I would have spent more time on the background though. Waaay too many stars. Expect more sketches in pen/copic after the contest is finished.

There was the Opus Luxury Yacht years ago, a very limited edition ship given I think for some tournament or other in game thing. So the concept would probably fit into the game.

Given its nature though it would be easy prey to pirates.

I saw that and thought perhaps a more mainstream yacht would be popular. Hopefully it will be able to outrun pirates.

If its faster than a shuttle with a bit more cargospace it would see use, even though it would still be hard for it to survive in low sec and outlaw space.

If this ever gets in game, not everyone will be able to pilot it. The last luxury yacht was a prize to a contest. The design is good, just not very suited to the EVE verse.

I wanted to create a ship that would be able to exist alongside other ships in the EVE universe, without looking like it was developed by CCP. I didn't want to feel restricted by the normal EVE aesthetic and tried to go for more of an "out there" look.

I think it's the cap on the front of the ship. I was thinking more of an X-Wing, but I can also see the Normandy now that you mention it.

That is what I had in mind while coming up with the concept. I figured plenty of people would be designing ships made for the sole purpose of handing out major ass-whoopings, and I wanted to toss in something a bit different. The idea behind this is that its origin is as a racing yacht, but could easily be re purposed as an interceptor or smuggling type ship that would arrive, deal out damage, and be gone before anyone knew what hit them. That and having a swanky interior for space parties and dancing (the wealthy demand some luxury after all).

aye. but in eve you dont get to walk around inside your ships... not yet at least. you only get the extirior veiw. so the space inside the ship dosent really matter what it looks like or even if there is alot of space inside it

"yachts are for the sea not for space"

You do realize that's about as helpful as saying "Ships are for the sea, not for space."

I saw and agreed with your point up until that sentence.

still. that is my point of veiw.
if you agree thats cool.
if you disagree that is fine too. the whole world is about peoples points of view. some are good. others are not... some have good and bad in them. it all depends on your point of view
