Thta lloks great, but as I'm looking at the hull, why don't you break it up with some more stuff, sensors, etc. to make it less "flat"

Great suggestion! I'll definitely keep it in mind. If I was to implement it, I'd have to decide if I want to just change the texture or actually add those to the model itself (probably for now, I'd just modify the texture and try it out).

Thanks for the great feedback!

This looks awesome. It's every space sim fan's dream (well, one of them) to be able to pilot a ship and walk along its surface.

Thanks man!

Haha, yeah, this game is basically an extension of a game I've wanted to play but never existed.

I thought I'd post some pictures to show how the new update is coming along!

This is a screen shot of how the ship will now look during a star jump-- with multi-colored "flares" coming out out of the "jump-rods" (or nacelles for my fellow Trekkies!).

This effect is specific to star jumping. And when you cruise around, a yellow colored propulsion flare comes out of the middle thruster. In a future update, I'd like to show some kind of motion blur while star jumping.

The star jump effects were inspired by the look of the warping scenes from some of the classic Star Trek movies.
