Precursor by Bak90 Precursor by Bak90
Amarr battlecruiser

As reaction on Strategic Cruisers, Amarrian engineers improve standard battlecruisers and create this powerfull
combat vessel with capable shielding, armor plating, efective weapons, good speed and maneuverability, and sufficient power-core
to supply all their systems to provide offensive actions behind enemy lines.


Inspired by: Amarr design

[link] ◄klik to see redesigned version: Precursor Mk.2


:bulletblack: specifications are only illustrative

It is long time ago what I played EVE online
(14 day trial) :)
so I hope the EVE online creative team can chose better balanced properties of this ship ( when it will win, of course :XD: )

PS: sorry for my english

Reminds me of the first Reaver ship seen in Firefly

First throught: Amarr Luxury Yacht (look from top and below tells me this)? Oops!
Anyway, great job :)

Very cool, looks like the Precursor to the Apocolypse actually. Very similar to the front end design of that ship. Amarr is one race where their ships are allowed, and I believe should, share strong similarities between hulls.

Great work.

I'm an EVE capsuleer, and I approve this design.

This is a smashingly good entry, chap!

i love this design! good luck in the contest

I like it, but somehow i am getting that Normandy SR-1 feel from it. Must be the hull-plating and the nacelles.
Destructiconz Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2010
Love it! pure smoothnessss
gomgom50 Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2010
this is brilliant realy fits well into the amarr race and to the universe. it looks kinda like an omen mixed with an ark
aceed- Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2010
I do hope you win, it looks just amazing :)
AgamonKat Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2010
This is a great model!
AngryAngryMan Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2010
very, very nice indeed. Certainly wouldn't mind seeing this one win.
Asterlane Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2010
At least make it a HAC!! not a BC... the Vagabonds NEED a counter like an Amarr Fast HAC that cool! and this is WAY Cool!
Sakkle Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2010
Very nice
Battlehamstergg Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
You got my thanks for what little it may be worth . Good work sir .
svetressito Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
i would surely buy that ship
CommanderDarren Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2010
ooh i like this one but it has the slots for a battleship not a battlecruiser ..

am i wrong that we cant say wat it will be or make its atributes but we just come up with a design that could slip into eve and ccp take it and and they then say what fittings etc it will have. ??

i may be wrong but im sure thats wat we were to do.I think you may be doing harm to a good design by trying to tell ccp wat it should have. Just do a blinding design and name it and maybe sugest a class and size but thats it.
Vernii Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2010
Arguments with those who think this isn't 'original' enough aside, I love this. I actually like this better than the in-game Harbinger.
mercc1 Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
Only thing I dont like is that it just so simple the smooth top is not so original seems like the others, aswell the smooth top thrown in with few lines tricks you into thinking their was alot of design put into it but on part of design I see and I do like is the part below I might just be picky but just giving my two cents =)
Vernii Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2010
Most Amarrian ships have smooth tops and relatively simple hull lines: [link]
olternaut Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
I like it a lot! The lighting makes it really stand out.

if this baby wins, i'm not gonna be sad. it's damn good and i love the texturework on the top!
EliezerGrawe Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
great design. looks evil and misterious. very beautifull work.
MadnerKami Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
The ship's main hull looks too tallish to me. It would help a lot, if you'd take the pylons and move them upwards, so they're about in the middle of the height of the main-hull.
Dionysus-eye Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
That is truly sweet. Shiny Sleek Evil. Pure amarr.
MDEcheck Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
Amarr isnīt my favourit but this is very cool
kechaan Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010
its.. beautiful...
adRiMai Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010

Yuuki-Katana Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010
I like this a lot. fits in the Amarr category real nice :)
novafox Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is definetly well in the tone of eve amarrian ships and an excellent rendition, its a bit too dark to view in its entirety though, and that 14 day trial did pay off it seems vs alot of other designs im seeing crop up.

and my bottom line with you is players of eve would welcome a ship like this with open arms, so to that effect a job well done.
ZRB Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010  Student Digital Artist
please oh please win, i would be so happy if i could get the chance to fly this

Baranha Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
nice, i wish I knew how to do this 3D thing.
Deterro Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010  Student Photographer
well, it's amazing, the best kind of amarr ship (khanid-looking). great job, but its not that original... for me at least, it's just another eve ship, i think we're looking for something more exotic (could they be looking for an anclient/alien race's ships?). still damn good job, only one thing u might wanna fix on the details is the locking range (since its a sniper ship you might wanna add more to avoid the need for a sensor booster), and also 8 low slots is somethign found in titans.... would love to see it happen, no offense :D
Mobius1990 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010
So Fuckin' Awesome.

As an Eve player I find this design really outstanding ! Don't care about the other entries for the contest, I want this one so bad i could pay for it !

But it's much a khanid ship than an Amarr ship in my opinion, due to the black and gray paintjob... KHANID GUNBOAT FTW :p
ACXtreme Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
I agree with the other peoples comments, this one is totally contest-worthy.
And stats are ok too, except drones and lasers with 100% dmg are weee bit too overkill for a battleship if compared to other battlecruisers in game.

But yeah like others said... every EVEish (y)
TinCanCat Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010
I'm speechless
solqas Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010
the very best entry i've seen. not only is it beautiful, you got the following things right:

1) have some creativity/originality and not just copy something and stick a few lego blocks on it
2)put an actual effort into it, alot of entries looks like something made in 30 secs flat in crayons
3)read the rules of entry and comply with it
4)actually know what you're designing, no giant super death-ray guns sticking out from every angle. (someone who actually played the game and has some basic understanding of what is being looked for)

the following is just the description and numbers:
i've seen quiet a few amusing descriptions in the other's entries. your's is actually very close to what would fit perfectly into the game.
although i think you've over powered it in some areas and under powered in others, they're only small changes really:
i doubt ccp would let you have 8 low slots on it, 7 seems to be their limit on ships below battleships, 5 med slot would suit an amarr ship better, total of 20 slots seems too much anyway, (harbinger has 18 slots). capacitor is a little overly large, 3500 would be better proportion, the cpu would look better at 400 (amarr ships favor lots of powergrid and less cpu).
maybe a 10% bonus to armor resistance per level like so many amarr ships has would be nice, and either 10% extra dmg, rate of fire or turret tracking per level. that should but the amount of bonuses closer to what the legion can have (makes up for the 2 less slots too)

can't think of anything else ccp would change before putting it in the game. (basically i've just quoted a harbinger with a little more bonus to it like a faction version of it)

there's no way this entry can lose.
Bak90 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010
I am glad you like it. I know... some (almost all) parameters are a little overpowered but it is a "dream starship" :)
I am sure that people from CCP are those who can set best balanced properties.
Surlybadger42 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010
Very nice, I love the design of Amarr ships. Not a fan of lasers, but that does not mean this is not a worthy model to win.
Aceved-0 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010
I for one, being an Amarrian, love this. This ship opens alot of possibilities with how many slots it has. Id really like to see it in color if you ever have the chance.
NovaJaguar Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010
Its kinda like if an Omen and an Apocalypse had a kid. Looks damn nice
Hrothgar-Doran Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010
Thats bloody brilliant dude!
ToshioMagic Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010
this looks like the front of an apoc and the back of an omen put together. it is undoubtedly amarr though.
SilentHavoK Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010
Wow, this is fantastic. Very detailed, very Amarr, undeniably EVE. Good luck!
silnys Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
eve style! good very good!
ScytheNL Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010
First real contender i have seen. 100% EvE, 100 % Amarr, 100% sexy.
It's almost a shame i'd have to say that it's a bit too much game design wise as in it looks like it's been here for ages.
Modify it to look more current and new high tech as you'd have a true winner in my book.
Bak90 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2010
thank you :) But my basic inspiration is in clasikal amarr design.
A legion looks pretty hi-tech but in compared with majestic apocalipse ... :drool:
Apoc. is winer in my eyes
