Thanks everybody for the feedback
The white things are rotating shields.
Most of the weapon sprites are supposed to be invisible except the cannon in the middle. The "weapons" would be just sections that look like weapons. But it can be changed if it looks bad. Are there such things as SWA weapon sprites?
I agree that the front is a little off but I'm not sure how to fix that without wreaking the firing animation.
This ship used to be made up of warning forever style sprites and back then the shields fit in but I guess that they don't anymore so I'll try a few ways to change them but if it just doesn't work then I'll just scrap them.
Knossos? The palace? I'm not sure how rotating shields would reference an ancient palace.
