    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.

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

    @keptick An engine powered by BEES. GENIUS.

    @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 Is that a custom background? Nice.

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

    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.

    Holy crap! Could we get different angles of this thing?
