SOOO happy to see this guy back! I'll be back tonight to look at it in more detail...
Edit: So I got a little time before tonight - here are some initial thoughts:
I can easily tell you spent tons of time enlarging and adding features and playability. I'm really digging the improved cargo capacity and two bay areas - very functiona. The expanded cockpit for full standability (is that a word?) is a very nice addition as well. One of the best additions to this version, though, is the work you put into the two rear side engines - I like the shape they give the ship from the rear, and their increased size and better shaping are a significant improvement. I also like how you kept the left and right sides of the ship different from each other... the proportions (or should I say "disproportions") of the ship are still just sick!
A few things I'm wary about:
First, the old ship wasn't quite so busy outside with antennas and colors - While the old one still had a lot going on, it wasn't to the point of distracting from the ship's proportions and structure. Unfortunately, I think this one is a bit distracting. I think it's the light grey and bley - I know you were excited to be able to use those colors on this addition, but I just really liked how the black, white and tan came out on the old one
I'm also kinda sad to see the little port go that you had on top of the original. The sensor array you added is cool, but I just liked that port - it kept the top looking functional but still clean looking.
Overall man, this is a nice second version, and I'm thrilled you took the time to do it. I lot of people just leave abandon the old version and never make the improvements. Keep it coming bro.
