    It makes me kinda sad that posting here is basically thread necromancy.
    The two massive thrusters are slightly modified versions of thrusters I originally built for someone else's ship. Now I started a new build using them, ship is wip but thrusters are done.


    I once tried to build somewhat similar giant circular engines and failed miserably (at least compared to your version).

    Kinda low-effort and experimental, but I like it.

    Those small engines with the 4-square-meter nozzle openings, and the slabs, feel a bit like wankery, but I do not utterly hate them for now.

    Also, heads up guys, apparently you can now upload GIFs directly to SMD, and they seem to display nicely, on my end at least.

    I'm still in partial disbelief over the fact that it was me who built these engines, and in only one sitting... But I guess the mandatory home isolation, plus a good-and-proper wicked music playlist explains it after all.

    It's made up of 14 small, 5 medium, 8 large and 4 giant rocket engine pods, all crafted on the spot, no prebuilt templates this time.

    And I'm not into cars, but I think if this "Watatsumi battlecruiser" project will keep on progressing like this, I might end up accidentally creating the Bugatti of StarMade warships ;)

    Cool right? :^D

    Finally got the detail density on the engines near where i want it to be.
    Ship itself is gonna take a while to finish, for now this will have to do.

    One of my most fruitful experiments in radical engine design.

    It turned out particularly sleek and futuristic, with the narrow, slanted outputs being a natural continuation of the wing-like part of the hull, the forward ends of which are "nebular gas intakes".

    The appealing green glow emitting from the white engines just asked for a startup animation:
