    you name your ships before they're complete?
    i can never come up with a name that sticks all the way to finishing the project.

    all the projects that are pending are built functional ships already (accept for 2 stations) and are just getting upgrades, detailing of system updates due to changes in mods. when i start a new ship they get a place holder name and an "NX" series tag. once they are finished they get their final name and a MK series tag. (MK01...MK02...ext)

    I tried out the latest Revenant class frigate.
    it's got some interesting design decisions.
    This is a review from a visual perspective.
    like how the turrets on the stern are directly in front of what appear to be thrusters:
    1701705022513.png
    Could be fixed by moving the thrusters to the end of the stern.

    Also a lot of the turrets seem to have really pathetic supports: 1701705163133.png
    I understand if that's for weight saving reasons but it seems many of the turrets have their range of movement limited by the design and geometry of both the gun and the ship hull. So I take that the ship has placed form over function in some places.

    i feel the bridge could've also been raised somewhat to offer a better view to the crew. it's got a strange flange around it that blocks a significant part of the view.
    a lot of the surfaces could've also been more detailed or interesting.

    The turrets really feel like they're sticking out of the hull too much. maybe its just personal preference but I really prefer the look of turrets that have been sunk into the hull and therefore more covered and less distracting from the greater forms of the ship.
    how you'd go about doing this is making something similar to what you've done with the side turrets but on the top.
    A hole where the turret will sit, and then cover the hole up from the top with the horizontal axis part:

    It might feel like a waste of internal volume, but a lot of the space will be reclaimed by the turret. and it saves a lot of mass you can use to make the hull bigger in general. if you're aiming for a specific mass limit.

    The ship also has plenty of silly visual features that i believe could've been significantly improved in a minute of work.

    I thought it best to not rate the ship because its very clearly made for pvp and I've got very limited experience of pvp. I don't think its fair for me to judge it solely on visual value and ignore all its merits I'm not familiar with.

    great review of the ascetics, and i will incorporate several of your suggestions in the next update. I however cannot use the sunken turret bases, even though they make more sense and look cool. It is too limiting for a pvp ship. As for the smaller nav thrusters... as I envisioned them as being used for turning and not acceleration, I did think they'd have long thrust plums.... but i see what you mean.
