Incorrect central thruster on superior floaters

Before the patch on June 11, 2015, the central thruster on superior floaters was the correct size on females, but too small on males. In addition, the central thruster on male superior floaters pointed in the wrong direction: toward the back instead of downward. These problems can be seen in the following screenshot, which was taken on June 12, 2014.

An attempt was made to fix the problems with male superior floaters in the patch on June 11, 2015, but that patch created new problems instead.

1. Both male and female superior floaters now have a central thruster that's too small. In the image below, the left screenshot was taken on June 12, 2014, and the two screenshots on the right were taken on August 20, 2016. The female on the left is wearing a red superior floater with the correct thruster size. The pink female floater and the red male floater on the right both have the wrong thruster size.

2. The central thruster is narrower on females and wider on males.

3. The flaps to the left and right of the central thruster are set closer together on females and further apart on males.

4. The central thruster is tilted upwards on males and slightly upwards on females.

5. The three flaps around the central thruster are tilted upwards as well (on both males and females).

6. The angle of the flap above the central thruster is higher on females than on males. On females, the flap is almost horizontal.

NOTE: The screenshots in this bug report were taken before the day/night cycle was removed from Risa. Superior floaters have not changed in a long time, however. The problems described in this bug report are still present.


Steps to reproduce

1. Log on to a male character, and go to Risa.
2. Equip a superior floater, and take screenshots of the floater from the back and the side.
3. Log on to a female character, and go to Risa.
4. Equip a superior floater, and take screenshots of the floater from the back and the side.
5. Compare the current appearance of male and female superior floaters to how female superior floaters looked in 2014.

7. Compare the screenshots you took of male and female superior floaters from the back.

The wrong thruster size also appears on some of the floater icons. This is in addition to the errors on the superior floaters themselves.
