Venture ORE mining frigate from the game EVE Online
About this creation
The Venture is an ORE (Outer Ring Excavations) mining frigate, notable for being a very competent mining ship despite its small size. Besides its mining and gas harvesting prowess, the Venture also has +2 warp core strength, which means that multiple sources of warp disruption are needed to prevent it from entering warp. This has made it a popular ship for faction warfare plexing, as it can escape impending fights very easily.

From the game EVE Online:
Recognizing the dire need for a ship capable of fast operation in unsafe territories, ORE created the Venture. It was conceived as a vessel primed and ready for any capsuleer, no matter how new to the dangers of New Eden they might be, who wishes to engage in the respectable trade of mining.

The Venture has amazing abilities to quickly drill through to the ores and gases it's after, harvesting them at the speed necessary for mining in hostile space, and getting out relatively unscathed.


I was inspired to create this ship by the new tech 2 variant which will be released with the summer EVE expansion, "Kronos". I decided to create the Venture first, since it would provide a good stepping stone to the creation of the next model. I also really like the color schemes of ORE ships, and the aesthetics of the Venture remind me of Sleeper ships. The hardest part of this model was definitely the body, particularly the front half. As you can see, there are a lot of SNOT techniques used all over the body to achieve the unique shape and attachment points.
