    So quick update whilst I debug collision meshes. Here's a revised texture with the Confed star on it. Thoughts? is it a keeper or do you want to go with the original unmarked version?

    Yes for Star Version, seems more logical than a blank version.

    The star fits nicely on the blue stripe, so I vote "yes". :)

    Star vote from me as well.

    Had a couple of other ideas as to how the star might look, so I tried to make a quick little mockup. I think I'm more partial to the left one (same color as stripe, gap to fit the circle and the point of the star)

    I amend my vote, SabreAce's left star.

    I rather like the one on the left as well. I think that would look great on the side of the Plunkett.

    The left one from @SabreAce for me too. Has a nice blend.

    Ok here are the options. As much as I liked Saber Ace's concept, it looks a bit too stylized in execution for a military vessel IMO. I think the plain white star is a better look, but that's just me.

    I think the white star vessel fits better, since the stars on the midway where white too, IIRC

    White star is best.
    And while I'm at it:
    @DefianceIndustries, how many of 1024x1024 textures do you use for Plunkett and Murphy?

    Isn't the midway's stars actually unpainted hull surrounded by blue paint? Like someone cut out a paper star, sprayed over it and peeled the paper away.

    Anyway the whit star certainly stands out. May be could be a little more subtle? Maybe faded a bit? But it is clearly the favourite.

    both have 2 textures, the base hull and a second one for all destroyable and illuminated objects. The Cerberus has two 1024x1024 and two additional ones at 512x512 for the hangar and plasma turret. It's best to aim for two though.

    Keep up the great work! :D

    That all sounds like an excellent start to your project plan to make it happens!
