I'm saying that they actually looked like real descendants of the GTVA fleet of FS2. The majority of times somebody introduces a new ship or model, it really doesn't carry a thematic or design link. INFR1 had a basic continuity because of how it looked.
Many of INFR1 models are awesome. Old-school ships in true freespace convention. But... They're simply old.
I second these... for some reason...
In my opinion the only things out of place in INFR1 were the EA's fightercraft... and then there's the Sabus and the Clarius
, but then again the models are all really old by now so I guess most of the ships were ok to me thematically, ignoring the issue of how old the models are.
If I could ever find reasons as to why a certain other mod didn't catch my attention immediately despite being newer and better overall, this might be one of those reasons, who knows. Or maybe INFR1 (maybe Inferno as a whole too, but that's open to debate with the changes going around) simply has something that makes me not want to let go of it that easily.
