I kinda agree, but only try it with extreme moderation! The weapons being generally brighter than the hulls in vanilla, it could be enough already.

I tried to design the ships not to look very shiny, like the military metal. What I don't like about vanilla sprites is that weird glow on the slots. But I already have plans for different set of ships, which is likely to have a lot of specular highlights.

Cool destroyer celestis :)

It's very green. I was up in the air earlier on whether the green or brown base color was better, but now I agree with HELMUT that the brown looks better than the green.

More specifically to this destroyer, the turret in the center towards the rear looks like it's below the armor plates on all sides, 3D-wise.

Well, Lasher is very red actually) Anyway, I think when I finish the faction, I'll post all ships at once in 2 (or more) tones, so that you decide which one is better. About the rear slot: I agree, that looks not where it is supposed to be. Though it will fire only backwards, it still feels even above the rear panel. The inner gray section around it was indended to add a feel of raised part, but that didn't work well enough, I suppose. I don't want to move it above the engines or cover the area with "main" panels to raise it, so I'll just keep that issue in mind when drawing next one.

Wow you are fast! As usual that's pretty cool, the slightly brighter and less saturated green is a very good middle-ground between the previous options.

@celestis

I can't wait for you to make a faction with those ships. They look absolutely amazing.

Again already???? ><
Well, that's nice and all, but don't that left frigate looks a awful lot like your last carrier destroyer... Not a real problem though, I just had a double take. Also, what is about your different types of engines? Personally I prefer the grid ones, more original.

Yeah, the left one looks very similar... Maybe I'll make another one instead. But probably its okay for engineers to reuse existing schemes, why not.
As for engines, they are intentionally different lore-wise. The "grid" engines are special faction propulsion tech that consumes less fuel (and results in less sensor profile, when it is implemented), but gives less combat speed. The "tube" engines are ordinary ones. Some ships will be rather slow because of that.
