Are we going to see proper insignia on the ship's hull? ;)

Nice... :)

Are you sure there should be such a "sticker" on top of the ship's hull?

Probably you could use the blueprint attached below to derive a good quality "SerenitY" inscription in white letters across the round decals with Chinese glyphs. There's one written in black at the bottom left corner of the blueprint.

And one more thing: those side bays above the wings with jets have two very suspiciously looking shadows on their floors. The low poly model I have has two arms with clamps protruding from each bay on both sides of the model right above where those shadows are. The arms are evidently intended for deploying the shuttle that Serenity carries in its insides. (see "Shuttle Deployment Arm" in the blueprint below)

Weren't those shadows generated by similar arms that for some reason are now missing from your model? ;)

Thank you, my friend, your work is flawless!! :)

I took the liberty to edit the Collection message title because it read "Starfury" instead of "Serenity".

And here's how I'm seeing it on my screen: (cannot go full screen at 100% GPU ;))

With such animated background we need some more reactor animation, just like what i did for Oblivion.

I think in future, we might also need separate dedicated sets of controls (you know, brightness/hue/saturation/filtering and some such stuff) for the background and the model... 8)
