That does look awesome, so it's actually going to be in Standoff?
Yup, in a couple different variants or so, actually... but it won't show up in many missions. I made this one almost exclusively for the "screen of civilian ships" mission (referenced in FA). For what it's worth, it'll show up in large numbers there.
We're also using it as the Bannockburn in the intro cutscene to first episode of the main campaign.
Wow. But in this lighting the texture almost looks like the ship is already destroyed.
That's what it looked like in the reference pics I worked with.
To be honest, I just chose to go with a battered look for our civilian ships... don't want them to look brand new (they might even look kinda uninteresting, since it's grey all over... don't know for sure, haven't tried). The Free Trader kinda matches the worn-out look as well.
That's one nice planet behind the Diligent!*
Can't take credit for that, unfortunately.
Practically all our planets were made by Thomas Ganshorn an awfully long while ago.
