EVE Online - HELLBORE by DouglasShuler EVE Online - HELLBORE by DouglasShuler
I have always been fascinated by the industrial side of EVE's starships. As I mine, I've often wondered how the ore gets from the blasted rock into the ship itself... so I conceived of a massive magnetic field that attracts the pulverized material and draws it into the processor units.

I like the idea of the magnetic field being so powerful that it has to be removed from the living areas of the ship, and that arcs of electricity form along the magnetic field as rock is pulled inside.

honestly looks more like a station then a ship. But looks cool.

I modelled it in haste. I've made a much cooler version since.

Interesting design. :)

They're actually making a dedicated mining frigate now.

Love the design, but hate to break it to you, a magnetic field would pull in bits containing iron, cobalt, or nickel. You are better off equipping with a gravitic beam to suck in the ores...

Out of curiosity, where do you see a problem with that? Also, it would pull in richer ores of magnetic metals faster, exactly what you need.

Unless you're hunting for more valuable metal. But a gravitic beam would catch anything and you had to sort out the rocks and get rid of them before processing the ores...

Many heavy Metals (gold, palladium, platinum) etc. require special techniques for extraction...mostly depending on what type of materials you are using for extraction. Most won't work with a magnetic beam...

Very cool. Good stuff man. What are you using for modeling again?

I model in Maya, given the choice. I can use Max, but I'm not very fluent with it.
