I see some new ship graphics, I LIEK.

But! Some of them are barely more than a blur at that size (and angle for some). It's not 1996 anymore, perhaps we could do with bigger graphics? 64x64 is pretty small... 128x128 would make them more distinguishable. 192 or 256 is probably out of the question sadly.

I'm aware that the GUI is kinda running out of space on the Detail panel, but the Summary panel for fleets has plenty space to work with. The Designer and Design Manager too have space.

You know Mus, ever since you mentioned that wow-esque GUI idea of floating/dockable panels over a full screen starmap it's been on my head. Imma' hold you on to that!

These 'new' ship icons are old icons built by ForceUser for stellar-legacy. I have copied them from his old web page and squished them to fit our 64x64 pixels. They give us a few more options but I know ForceUser wants to replace these with new better rendered icons.


Have fun.

This is the current status of the graphics:

- All the equipment pictures (engines, weapons, etc.) are old renders and the original 3D models have been lost.
- The purple ships set (and the green/red if that's going to be used) are also old renders and the original 3D models have been lost.
- The new light blue ship set (based on the purple set) and the start of the old school station type ships are new and I have the models. This can be rendered at any resolution and the 3D models can be potentially used in an in-game model viewer.
- I will need to redo all the equipment pics if we want bigger renders that's not blurry. Same with any of the old ship sets.

Of course if someone can/wants to just recreate the equipment pics or help in any other way, feel free Smile
