New Caldari Station Skins

In a blog post last week I said I wasn't sure about the new Caldari station skins coming in Rubicon 1.1.

I thought I'd have another look at them on the test server.

Clearly we have a lot more effects now similar to the V3 skinned capitals. There are now forcefields and glow effects. But these new textures.....

.... Now, I really do not know what to say.

Caldari are supposed to be dull! Their stations are supposed to be boring Arnold Rimmer Grey. These revised skins look like the bloke who designed the Hookbill paint job had some spare time on his hands. I went to visit another station with a different model.

The docking bay is very cool, but the general textures just don't feel right to me. May be they'll grow on me. I don't fancy moving simply because I don't like the stations 'paint job' any more!

On a very positive note, this is now live on SiSi:-
