The pirate ships, for R5, will be from HW2. The models are great but the texture resolution is not quite as good as Sins ... they have a more 'grungy' look about them, as befitting pirates

I never was a fan of some of your older content that heavily reused meshes from stock sins ships, so I enjoyed it when you pushed out your new ship designs (that seemed mostly original or put together from Sins ships so subtly I didn't notice). But this...

I do love HW2, especially the Vagyr Battlecruiser, but I think this made me die a little on the inside. Guess I can be lucky you didn't use the Hig Destroyer as well.

Don't get me wrong, I dislike reusing meshes from stock games or other projects in geneal, this is no animosity dedicated towards you guys personally. I just hope you get someone to create something original for you to use, preferrably soon.

Don't get wrong but ... I am the only developer of this mod, as such you can imagine how much time has gone into making it. Creating models takes a lot of time ... I just haven't got any ...

I have some basic knowledge and know how much time it takes to create proper models. As I said, this is not meant to be a personal attack.

However I guess you're putting up those pictures not only to show off progress, but also to get constructive criticism. Because of this I wrote my comment, to let you know that if you are using those models I would prefer if it only was temporary.

You are right "progress, but also to get constructive criticism" and I don't mind either. Also I realize different people can have different options. I like the models ... I can always leave the original models in the game

Sigh... if you really want to go with that, why not make this one a carrier capship at least and use the Bishop for Colonization?
