Well I appreciate the compliment! I would bear in mind, if my ships look complicated, its often because I'm using a LOT of custom parts... at this point I have a pretty vast library of parts to call upon for adding complication very quickly. What was new and somewhat challenging with that ship was the "Form" of the vessel. I'll come back to that.
I for one always look forward to seeing your ships. You always put some thought into them and you clearly have passion for it.
I do want to say though, that most of your ships are striking a level of detail just above stock-galciv ships. Your designs are more ... "solid" in that they don't cut corners... everything connects as it should and you seem to take care to have good scaling and components.
But I do think that the basic "Form" of each of your ships is suffering from not using enough parts. Now that could be intentional, perhaps you want to keep things at a certain level of simplicity, but if that isn't the case, I'd recommend putting more effort into matching styles and shapes of parts into each other.
For example, the first screenshot you gave, I like the overall profile, pretty classic Tri-Wing design. The side wings are radically different than the top fin... they are curved, the top is pretty angular. The cockpit is curved (has some clipping going on in the nose-cone) and is jutting out of a square shape. Those inconsistencies in form create dissonance in my opinion and holds the design back.
If the wings are curved, the fin would likely be curved, if on the other hand the main body is square... which is the cockpit hull so rounded? Sometimes changing style and form in a ship or shape can enhance a design, but quite often it detracts and it's really hard to figure that out. I have a whole ship-set I'll be releasing soon that I think fell into this trap BIG TIME. I invested enough in it that I finished it... but I F-ing hate it. Whereas, I also have a new set, where I really successfully married sections of detail with square and flat components, with areas of simplicity with beautiful curves that contrast, and I love it.
Its very difficult to get right and different people have different tastes.
The last screenshot in your post... much better and coherent in my opinion, love it! That's my 2 cents for you. You do great work, so I'm always watching.
