I finished my minutes. I am free! Free to write clever things. Deep, meaningful, clever things.
The problem is, my mind is blank. Maybe tomorrow, when I get over minute fatigue, I'll be better.
For now, I will whine about the Ishtar.
I'm not whining about any of the silly reasons people normally do. Who cares about that? There is a deeper issue. Ishtar are no longer blue.
Behold. This is exhibit one. This is an Ishtar photographed in its corral in six months ago. Note the luscious, rich, dark blue hide. Note the darker, navy accents and the sleek cyan detailing. Exquisite.
On September 30th, 2014, the Eve Online Release Oceanus v8.48 was released. There is a notice about the adjustment of the CreoDron ships to give them back their green tint. The Gallente are well known to enjoy the color green for their spaceships. That is fine but it is not unheard of for a T2 ship to be far away from the base color of its parent. Thus, the Ishtar as I have known it has always been blue.
Until today. One would think that a release named Oceanus would understand a blue blue.
Even if Oceanus is a Titan, come on.... he still liked water so like.. Oceans?
Let me move on.
Exhibit two. The same Ishtar only it seems to have been infected by some type of metallic insectiod color pallet.
With this change, Eve has been lost a line of gorgeous blue spaceships. It is a horrific thing and the repercussions are only just starting to be seen. Awful. Just awful. What an unnecessary nerf to beauty. What a nerf to blue.
What about the blue spaceships? Where is their CSM representation? My plate is full but I am always ready to stand behind a worthy cause. More blue spaceships, CCP! Let not this unjust harm to a primary color go unnoticed. Let not us accept this shimmering green with its yellow accents. Cyan lights are not enough to compensate for this.
Oh no. I will not forget. Do you remember when the Rhea was blue water camo? Well I do. I have not forgotten.
Eve must have blue ships.
