    July Progress Report

    July was a pretty productive month, and today comes with the release of my Sandcrawler refit, the Starcrawler.

    July Releases & Updates

    Pretty much wrapped up my plans for the Community Build Initiative with both the Sand & Starcrawlers finished now, which speaking of...

    Doc Industries Starcrawler


    You can find the Starcrawler here: Starcrawler

    Tried some new stuff with this ship, namely the engine assembly having speed sensors so they turn on/off. I'll probably try to do that on more of my ships in the future.
    Also tried to make this ship somewhat capable as far as the weaponry, so I was testing it up against Dire Wolf 's Raider Class Frigate since it had a similar footprint, and (although it was hard to tell fighting against bots) it did well enough for me, especially since this ship would just be picking on the little guys, but definately open to tips & tricks.

    Apologies for the belated update, I wanted to wait until I had the chance to go through everyone's CBI Mobile Factories.

    starmade-screenshot-0160.png
    Just in terms of collective blocks placed, this CBI has gotten to be up there for Starmade, and considering this is 2022 Starmade, I find it quite impressive.

    MIC-583 mobile industrial complex - DeepspaceMechanic
    As a mobile factory/refinery, I feel this entry leans into the factory/refinery part most of all, with the mobile part coming second.
    I also love the scale of everything, it feels like it could accommodate Transformers with how big everything is.

    Deep Space Mobile Foundry - Dire Wolf
    I like the shape, and the design at the front helps give the ship a 'cathedral-esque' vibe if that's a thing.
    Also I could be mistaken, but this may be the largest interior Dire Wolf has made? So I certainly applaud the work here.
    Some blocks and bugfixes that could use another look-through.

    Atlas Mobile-Refinery - AtraUnam
    Watching the progress pics, I never had a clue what direction this ship would go next, definately one of the most unique.
    The Out of Order hangar is brilliant, and overall a great interior, the intentional choices with gravity is new.
    So many externally animated bits that a fun to watch.
    Misplaced block atop the first hallway ramp

    Phoenix Interstellar Mobile Drydock - refirendum
    My favorite design - Love the asymmetrical mobile shipyard look.
    I enjoy the open feeling with how many windows are throughout the interior
    Plus seeing the ship built on the YouTube streams is great too.
    Misplaced gravity block floating off to the right side

    SBS Levana - SchnellBier
    Probably the sleekest design, it doesn't feel like it sacrifices aesthetic for industrial function.
    Excellent interior, plus I'm always a sucker for slanted walls/windows.

    AF HWSS Wellington - Osborn14
    Phoenix may take the cake as a shipyard, but this exterior is probably the runner-up as a factory/salvage ship
    I like most of the interior rooms, but admittedly I got lost in this ship more than the others, could benefit from less elevators.

    608 Minor Factory Ship - jw608
    Gives off the most 'industrial' vibe with the cobbled bits and bobs.
    It also gets extra bonus points for being the only technically functional mobile factory I believe.
    The breaker system is very unique, I don't think I've seen anything like that before.
    As always, love seeing the daily progress videos keeping the YouTube scene alive.

    CMCIV Kyūyu - The_Owl
    Some gnarly engines, and all around next-level greebles across the entire ship
    Walking through the hallways feels like a horror movie, very gloomy in an aesthetic way.

    WS Dakota - Tshara
    (Best for last of course)
    There is definately a gift when it comes to interior layout, because I never once felt lost.
    Even with the huge interior, no room felt redundant, and every room felt like it had a purpose.
    The attention to detail with the Easter eggs, and all the animation throughout the ship is mind-blowing as always.
    Also the diorama the ship comes docked with is brilliant.
    Misplaced block in transporter room


    Hopefully the community doesn't run out of steam, and
    I'm excited to see what the next CBI will be.

    August Releases & Updates

    I was on vacation for the later half of this month, so the only thing "new" is the default X-Wing colors were changed from Red to Blue, as a full Red Squadron complement is in the works.
    Aside from that, some of the "Begun Construction" stuff from last month is finished, I just haven't had a chance to finalize and post them.
    I also might hold off on posting the Phantom here until I actually have the Phantom II & Ghost finished just so I know they're all compatible.

    Updated:

    Begun Construction:
    Snowspeeder - Completed
    Roken's Transport - 20%

    September Plans/Ideas
    Now that I'm back home, I'm hoping I can wrap up some of my ongoing projects.
    I also want to keep making more video showcases, but they can be very draining, so we'll see. The CR-90 video will probably wait until after all the repaints are finished however.
