The next batch of updated ship images has now been released. All standard ships of the Privateer fleet are now included in the client by default.
This release also enables some image processing improvements to the 3d viewer available under the race menus (this has no effect on the static images used in game). Please let us know if you see any performance or other issues with it.
As noted before, for those that might prefer to use the older models or find the mix of old and new models jarring, there is a setting to switch back to using the "Classic Pics".
