I'm seeing textures from Skaarj, Mine and DecayedS package and as much as mixing texture packages together can go wrong, your screenshots still seem nice and have a sense of "place" to them.To be completely honest with you, since you can't really remember where the name came from or why you started it but never finished, you might be better off just releasing what you have alpha to the public just to give you feedback and ideas for things like story, gameplay and difficulty and general critiques on your geometry and lighting capabilities thus far. I think the more suggestions (and dare I say help) you receive from the community here, it might just get you a position on a current mapping team or lead to an entirely new individual SP project that could mean alot more to you personally. Just a suggestion and if instead you decide to finish this one off any call it a day, I understand your POV.A First critique of one of the screenshots you have already provided:Generally speaking the geometry lends itself nicely in this screenshot. I think a bit more geometrical variation on the floor to help the skaarj panels and trim could help bring the level of detail out much more. Maybe also introducing a second floor texture. My main issue with this screenshot though is the skaarj decoration texture leading up to the overscaled Starship light at the upper-right hand corner of this image. The Skaarj decoration texture that abruptly ends looks.... well.... abruptly ending and the light source way overscaled. Maybe you could just extend the decoration(s) up the wall completely and just ditch that light all-together but its hard to say.
