      Corrupt SJW Discord admin!

      Geez, the world we live in. So, this happened today: I look up what's happening on the SM discord, and notice there's some conversation about flat /cookie planets. I write something like "the only sane way to do planets is either spherical, or some videogame tricks to make them look spherical...

      40k Imperial Fleet- Work in Progress

      A fellow player showed some interest in a pic I shared recently, so I thought I'd make this project public, to let everyone have some half-finished eye candy. It all started in the halcyon days of Minecraft, with a static, small scale, rough and clumsy recreation of the Retribution, based on...

      A revelation on the redundancy of System Integrity

      The integrity mechanic has been the subject of much discussion, with many posts pondering it's cons and pros, and sometimes trying to offer theoretical improvements or better ideas altogether. After reading the Nth such post, I realized something; Isn't the Integrity system unnecessary as a...

      Logic + Salvage beams

      As odd as it is, it took me this long to try my hand at an automated salvager array. What's stranger still is that I'm still building stuff in these turbulent times, but let's cut to the chase. Here's a small test machine that was supposed to sweep back and forth with a salvage beam. The SVG...

      Nth idea for a better power update

      Starmade Power System Redesign 01. Foreword: This one's no less wordy than the usual rants that tend to sprout like mushrooms around here, and quite franky, I'm losing my patience for them, same as you do. So I provided some TLDR for the major points in picture format for ease of...

      What have you done... (power system wtf)

      Allright. Let's start with the good parts. There ARE some good things in the new power system video. Namely power priorities, the long overdue fix for weapons consuming power before firing ( I don't know why was this not treated as a bug sooner; ATM if there's not enough power to shoot a...

      Stargate Fighter crafts

      After finishing the Daedalus ( http://star-made.org/node/16804 ), we decided to take it easy today and built a collection of small fighter craft from the Stargate universe. Mostly so the Daedalus could have some pirates to shoot at, but I have to say, they're quite fun to fly. To the downloads...

      My take on a new AMC system

      Greetings. I'd like to talk about antimatter cannons. More specifically, about what's wrong with them, why is it wrong, and how to change it to be AWESOME instead. Basically, as it is, you just have to add more amc blocks to your weapon to make it better in every stat. That's not very...

      An argument for better docking - WIF PIKCHURRZ!!

      Hello. The newest update seems to have concluded the lengthy troubles we had with docking areas, but it also raised a new possibility. You see, I always found using the docking enhancers a bothersome task, and the area they generate around themselves a nuisance at best, and a serious...

      New Pulse weapon, somewhat underwhelming.

      First off, a job well done on improving weapon varieties. This new pulse weapon is interesting and provides some new tactics, but it still needs some work; Me and my pal did some testing and found out that the force bubble isn't very large to begin with- It barely encompassed our 25 block...
