This time it does..:) but the saying meant that - by trying to improve something one can make it worse...

There's a lot of noise in it, and seeing the ship I get the feeling I can't really tell what I'm looking at. I actually think a simplification of the texture detail would work wonders here. The colour stuff would honestly best be left as an alpha channel that the player colour applies to, or you'll run into problems with multiplayer games.

Noise? You cannot tell what you're looking at? hmmm... So subjective...


As for simplification - texture is incomplete yet...

An concerning alpha and color of the multiplayers - i did not get it at all...

"Noise" - I mean too busy, too much small detail that will degenerate into something unintelligible if you aren't really close to it.

If you've played multiplayer, you likely recall that each player has a different-coloured ship. This is why the default is grey - because the other ships have to be red, green, pink, etc.

"Noise" describes it very well.

Regarding gun changes: You can't see that on the original ship, and it doesn't play a role. Usually your first chance to tell what gun an opponent is using is when his shots are flying in your face. :)

Because it looks cool.

I'd have thought you'd guess that yourself. :P

Definitely one of the most I'm-going-to-dismember-you-and-everyone-you-care-about looking of ships I've ever seen.

Awesome.
