I was poking around on Singularity, the test server, when I noticed that many of the ships have been re-skinned. Some of the changes are dramatic, such as the Lachesis shown here.
Others, such as the Crow pictured here are not so dramatic but definitely have more grit and less cartoon.
I didn’t do extensive cataloging of the ships that had been changed, but here are a few before and after shots.
Sadly, some ships have lost exciting features — for example the Hawk lost it’s spinny bits, and we all know how important spinny bits are. But overall, things are looking great.
I didn’t see any models that had drastically changed (at least not any that aren’t widely publicized), but the Ishkur’s thruster configuration and front bits have been altered.
