Couldn't find it anyway. Ask mooncat to add it to the wiki, it's his job.
Then you can look at it.


I'll try to do this tomorrow or the day after, whenever I get a chance to stop building bases.


The lack of ship images on the wiki actually really annoys me, if you get me a way to get a picture of every single one I will add them all.

I can also work on doing this, with the testing and local servers I can transform my ship into whatever I want, allowing for consecutive images of ships, with no change in background or rotation as well. I can handle uploading them to the wiki as well.
An example of this having been done already can be found on the Fighters page on wiki, done by Egrosphere.

If you upload them and tell me how to link them into the tables I will do it for literally every ship ingame. This has bothered me since C1 =P

Try to get as high quality screenshots as possible. This is a good example of a ship image that could be a lot better quality.

Of course. I want to aim for the images to be like Egrosphere's. I've already uploaded images, such as some uber ones like Grease Lightning, and I don't believe they are of poor quality. With control over changing my ship, it'd make it even easier and nicer.

What do you all think of the gifs Markoz added? Essentially, which do you prefer of these two:

I think the gif looks nicer, if it could be a little slower.

A .gif at 6 rpms would actually be awesome. That way it takes 10 seconds to rotate. Only use them on the actual ship's page, not the ship listing though, because putting 200 .gifs on that page is going to lag it up and make it shitty.

So .gif + JPEG preferred. .gif for the ship's page, JPEG for Ship list page.

If this is the image you mean, I actually think the quality is fair but not great. The lighting isn't good and the in-game text is not very high res.

And the text font. What kind of person actually uses that font ever?

I just want to say that I started to fill this out, and then stopped because it reminded me of the days of myspace "surveys", lol...
