      I have not posted here in some while.

      It is late.

      I blame the above for this post.

      ENGINES.

      Intentionally moody engines.

      Don't forget the pipey bits

      More moody engines

      The ship in question: Rex.

      (pictures intentionally dark and vague to not ruin the mystique of the ship in progress)

      In a more serious note I think people are overlooking the creative possibilities of one of the most important and visual parts of any starship : Engines. So lets post up all our coolest engines to abolish boring engines forever.

      (Again, weird thread; It is late.)

      Yes, please! Any reactor/power room pics, or are they not allowed? I'd love me some reactors.

      Here's the design I've been messing around with for my new battleship, partially inspired by SCRAMjet engines!

      Reactors provide the drive for engines, so by that logic, I see no reason not to post them :p.

      @keptick@keptick An engine powered by BEES. GENIUS.

      @MrFURB@MrFURB A unique approach, I approve. I like the purple

      son let me tell you, looking at spaceship pornography is a huge sin. i highly recommend you call your local indie-space-sandbox-gaming therapist immediately and schedule a session with him.
      i know it can be a tough addiction to admit to, but i believe you can overcome this son. we are all so pruod of u

      OK, now we're getting into the hardcore stuff. What about amateur? POV? Multiple?

      I remember back in my day, one of these images would take 30 minutes to load on DSL!

      @jzimmerman4@jzimmerman4 Is that a custom background? Nice.

      I actually tried to go for something similar with my titan (with the spikes around it) but failed miserably and it ended up looking completely different from what I originally planned. Not that it's a bad thing but I may have to try it out again someday.

      And you made a really good use of purple, it gave me some ideas.

      Engines within engines.

      These are the engine for my Titan, the Valhalla. I am still writing the lore for the ship but the 4-large blue engines are along the lines of a Pulse Ion Thruster and the 2-red finned engines are Magnetoplasmadynamic thrusters. Should be plausible for sublight speed in the future.
