Thanks guys, I really appreciate the compliments and advise.
@Kaelis: Ya, I was actually going for rather generic just to be safe. Now that I know I'm going in the right general direction(at least compared to before), I'll try some more interesting designs. Also having trouble getting the shading right cuz alot of the pieces now are multilevel shaded themselves. Would be helpful if all sections lowest 'level' were the same color, if that makes any sense, so they could be used at any height of shading.
@Veronw: Well I tried adding some color highlights but not really happy with them. I also tried to reduce the blockyness a bit but my next ships will be more in that direction. I wanted to add a launch bay or something in the center but none of the sections look quite right.
Ok, unless anyone else posts specific criticism, I think I'm beating this to death, so I'm just going to post and release it so I can start on something different.
This file should contain all the sprites used but let me know if anything doesn't load right, or if any part of the ship doesn't seem to function right. Lots of weapons, but balanced near meta standards so its not really too powerful imo.
