My Favourites on the list above so far:
Load Dispenser (lol you have to modify this one slightly so it looks more like a spaceship)
elc delta formation
d3 looks slightly too busy at the rear
The ECTATO PACIFIER is definitely my most Favourite.
What i notice about many other ships is that people tend to build them overcomplicated, they look too busy and over sophisticated. Takes away the aesthetic factor and in turn look less functional. Not saying it isn't, it just looks that way.
Having said this, how it moves and functions as well as the weapons and how they function plays a big role.
Not much fan of the giant robot transformer though, nothing against it it's really cool, but it feels to me that it belongs in another game, not star control.
I would love to see the J-type 327 Nubian royal starship, it has all the right lines and curves. and Yes i'm a big fan of the original Urquan dreadnaught ship
Here are some more ships that would look awesome in SCO: (PLS BUILD THEM !)
