What do you think of these new designs?





Don't worry about sizing or lighting.

Those are really nice but the top down view seems a bit too light compared to the other view...good work!

Well...

I do like them, especially the 'wing' design. Though maybe you should vary the 'wing' shape/size a little more between the ships, for some reason it makes them look to similar to each other (well when there are three of 'em ) even with the 'connector' & 'bridge' changes. Possibly later size differences would clear that up though?

I've gotta say looking good!

I've always liked that kind of design! Kind of a "pincer" shape.

I would agree with the other comment about changing the wing shape some...perhaps every 3rd change in size (not that I'm any kind of authority on such things).

But, as a general comment, I think they look good!

Only look good? Darn philistines; they look great, I mean really great. I didn't even know such parts existed in doga.

Great work Atrocities, but do slow down; It is your birthday after all!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Cyclons! First impression.

Yeah, I like them. Only complaint is that funny yellow thing. It seems to serve no purpose and doesn't fit into the rest.

Thank you all for taking the time to comment. I agree that the wings should be varied. The design was inspired by the Tigerclaw from the Wing Commander movie.

The parts do not exist in DOGA as parts, I had to make them out of other parts. I can send you the DOGA file if your curios how I did it. You can do what I do, and export parts of the ship as parts. However the color remains the same. I think you can run it through the part converter, but I have never used that tool.
