Interesting shipset concept.

Why do some of the ship portraits have blue backgrounds? They should all be black.

The InvPortrait files should be greyscale, so as not to clash so much with component placement.

Also, it is generally good practice to make your archive extract to a folder by default. When one extracts the formica.zip file, the set should be contained in a "Formica" folder.

I thought the ships looked better on a blue background instead of the old black background.

I had problems with the greyscale of my InvPortrait files so I used a blue background. Hopeful one can still make out the component placements. Besides, the ships were dull with the greyscale, this way they had more detail to me, a matter of taste I guess.

I fixed the zip file so now it should extract to the "Formica" folder.

Thank you for pointing out my errors, I hope to do many more ship sets soon.

The inv portraits are supposed to be dull and lifeless.
