I fully intend to reproduce this ship, in its exterior entirety, in StarMade.
Can't tell why, it just seems doable and worthwhile.
(It's a random warship model of a certain "Ferrous Corp" from the Dark Matter series, took the screenshots for later inspiration)
Stay tuned for much, much more.
Thank you for second place! Honored to be right next to that masterpiece that is WS Dakota.
docpenguindoc's two entries remained unshowcased, he previously put together all submissions:
A remark I'd like to add is about the connectivity of my ship's operations. I've put a lot of effort into...
Only two worth mentioning:
Freighter - fixed hole and decoration bleed-through in the ceilings of the make-believe Nuclear Reactor and Shield Generator rooms.
Fighter - removed six redundant armor blocks from within the hull.
Changed orientation of the wall of cannon barrels behind the ice sheet of the ship's "gills"; you can't see a weird array of outputs anymore.
Onboard cannon's primary and secondary module groups don't touch anymore.
A semi-enclosed shipyard of one kilometer length, suitable for the construction of titan ships.
LAGBOMB WARNING: 5,360,000 blocks and who knows how many chunks...
Overall size: 609W x 615H x 1065L
Shipyard area: 501W x 501H x 1051L
200K reactor, 250K stabilizers
No interior or systems.
Miniature model included (docked).
Overall size: 780W x 430H x 720L
Large shipyard (modules fitted): 95W x 85H x 220L
Small shipyards (two identical, both unsystemed): 105W x 65H x 81L
Warpgates (two identical, both unsystemed): 115W x 115H
Another issue with the latest non-dev build (0.203.132) is that LoD blocks don't display (at least from close up, they still do display at a distance, in their non-3D model forms).
Wonder if this is setting-related, and if so, how it can be fixed?
Onboard weapon is now of a less boring-to-use configuration; also increased 150% in block-count (replaced 500 blocks of internal deadweight).
Repositioned the interior button of rover hangar bay door, etc.
Finished this ship around the same time I got through all three seasons of the Dark Matter series it drew inspiration from, indirectly.
Here's a shot of the new Isaac-class hovercraft resting in the (unfinished) shipyard of the MIC-583 mobile industrial complex.
Isaac's core room --...
Cyberspace Shipyards proudly presents the "MIC-583" mobile industrial complex: a self-sufficient, self-propelled industrial park, turning asteroids into spacecraft.
Nicknamed "Mick", this 583-meter-long powerhouse is basically a flying island of heavy industry, featuring:
I could say of this ship all the good things I said of your Galactic Trading Vessel. Another exceptionally creative and diligent work of StarMade art!
Although it's a bit of a lag-bomb, it's absolutely worth it. Noticed that it even has docked half-slab windows on those two-part doors, very nice.
