How the other stats then will be balanced, i really dont know.
Given the current state of X4 ship stats, I can bet the other stats will be just copy/paste.

That's sad to hear. The weird looking paranid captial ships were one of the biggest letdown for me - they simply look unfinished.

But I agree split vessel look fabulous.

I think the current ships we have look great. For a space sim game I dont think the ships need any more detail than what we have now.

Can't agree with this...
Current ships have much worse design than X:R had.
And Split:Vendetta's ships finally look like they should.

- S-/M-/Drone-/Rocket capacities.
- Most weapons and other surface elements / but because a lot of encyclopedia entries and stats are wrong, this might be a wrong assumption.

I see a lot of copy-paste in shipstorage, weapon range, equipment/hull prices, quotas in god and jobs... It is my biggest gripe with x4. Such a cool game but so little of the assets or systems are used to their full potential.

I do not think one can compare the images. One is of the Gorgon Frigate and the other appears to be an L transport or mining ship. Additionally the Gorgon appears to be from pre-release as the shading on it appears much more primitive than in game. Specifically the Gorgon is very shiny and has cube map or screen space reflections much like the Split ship which are not visible in that alpha screenshot.

Is it me?
Or has this conversation about pre-Alpha rendered ships being used as a comparison in "Ugly Looking Ships" Topics been had before?

Sure I've read a similar topic before and the same answer was given then as well.

Quite probably. The only fair comparison would be someone with a good GPU maxes out the visual settings and then screenshots in a similar environment with similar paint work the ships.

Yesss please make this happen! Most of the ships needs an overhaul for external and internal details. Especially details on the control decks of capital ships looks like produced for a mobile game... Instead of a complex command console they have a hd plasma tv :D. And speaking for external details even the game i play on my phone (Nova Empire) have more details and looking cooler than x4 ships.

Have to say the new ships looks way way better than the vanilla set. Seems like you got more times to polish them, or were more inspired (i mean the team, i know you were not in charge of this @linolafette for the vanilla ships).

Hoping that some of the L/XL vanilla ships will have some reworks someday.

Quite excited for the 3.0 and the DLC.

In addition to what Tamina and teleportationwars wrote, I'd also add that all ships within same class carry exactly same amount of flares and deployables storage.
