I always experienced the turn rates on con ships as part of the balance tbh. Eliminating this might just make them too powerful.

Looks great. The glowing yellow bits would be a great deal better if there was emissive based bloom. I don't know if spring supports that, but if you basically take a white shade and tint it yellow with some intense emissive values, you should get a glowing white body with yellow bloom.

Now I know what I'll be doing this summer. Giving a proper animation to those ships.

seeing that missile ship in the water makes me think the below the surface "sausage/hotdog" is a bit big for the ships size. Also non-conform the other ship designs.

The sizes are a bit off. Don't know what happened, but I always assumed some resizing afterwards would have to be done.

The ranger is a little to big I think, and should be more the size of the Archer in the picture. (@Floris: The front bow should look less hot-dog like when the ship is smaller, I think :-) )
The Colossus should be slightly bigger to accommodate planes.
And the Conqueror is to small, should be more like the Millennium.

Resizing will probably happen when the relevant factories and transporters are done, so we'll be sure everything fits into everything.

More importantly I noticed the Conqueror has a depth-charge launcher, but I didn't model anything for it. I'll think of a nice quick fix for that and 'll try to update the model asap.

Those round tops on the biggest ship make it look like kitchenware.
Maybe change them for something else?
That small slick one looks awesome though.

I tried to keep the sizing consistent with BA sizes, that can be a reason for the discrepancy. I agree though, the colossus should be larger a bit.

Some people complaining that models looks "childish". I worry about that. KKND 1 was a GREAT game with serious style and it had a good success. KKND 2 had a childish style and it was a big fail :-D

If it's possible - prefer serious style please :-D I know it sounds stupid.. but what could I say else?

that does sound stupid, what does "serious style" mean? What like realistic sized barrels? Where you cannot easily see them zoomed out? What about OH OH RUST? Or better yet, real ranges and projectiles that cannot be walked around...

When you say "serious style" it doesn't describe anything. you need to be more detailed in your description.

I don't agree with you but you need to elaborate more on your issue.

KKnD 1 units looked like plastic toys. If that's serious style, then what the childish one would be?

I don't think he worded it very clearly. The style is here to stay but it would be neat to see what he means.
