    This looks great with all the detail. But it's a little bit too much going on with all the girders. Maybe use another color on the girders to make the turrets distinguishable from the station.
    yup, agreed it's to busy at the moment, we're looking at the bones of it though, I'm still planning on adding armoured plates which will cover a lot of it up and help define things a little, the red shell on the outside is a place holder, am planning on taking it to a darker theme.

    I cannot imagine how many times you went over that emblem saying 'I don't like this bit' and correcting it. Also, I think your turret station might not have enough turrets.

    On a more serious note, I am now watching this thread intently, your work is excellent!

    Thank you.

    Edit: AngelusKutona Here's how I worked on it. The pirate didn't take near as long as the alien I did a while back.

    Man, that's one mean platform. I'd just use this as my home base.
    I still think there's room for more turrets. ;-)

    Interesting you didn't make a modified pirate version of your alien emblem to be a kind of subtle reference/easter egg.
    I've used this method as well as pixel images in the past in trying to figure out a logo for my own work. I found it a really therapeutic way to go about creating a few basic templates for different things.

    I love these "fake" missile/pods. I also use them on my builds. The fun part is that you can scale them up nicely with the ships, adding more detail the bigger them are. Used on my EVE Online Drake and Tornado =)

    Yup, they're very versatile and look good at any size. I''ve been putting them on everything as well.

    The ship has two sets of chambers that are swapped between depending on activity. One set of FTL and one set of stealth. Perma stealth capable with a 2000M/2000M, a 2000C/2000C and an auxiliary 2000B. I have built the ship so it is easy to reconfigure the weapons on the fly making any combination of those groups possible. ie a 4000M/2000B can be setup in seconds. It comes equipped with a very compact, powerful salvage ship that has the fastest dock/redock time of any ship I've made. This ship is designed to prey on the unwary... not that I condone ever doing such a thing... /cough.

    I've been trying to make a flying saucer I like the look of since I started playing StarMade. Think I've got it this time. I'm keen to build a mothership for this...

    I've removed the landing pads on the top right of the yard in favour of larger hangars. The docks on the other side now have three moving rails per side so they can accommodate different sized ships.

    Added a service ship hangar and mining ship dock to the underside. The large green capsules are all the factory blocks for the new factories.

    Factories on the right, storage on the left. (Paint storage at rear.) All hooked up for load/unload to the mining docks. The central lift goes down to the mining dock underneath. (This pic is inside the main tube on the underside of the station.)

    New Large AMS turret. 8x 250C/250C. These look awesome streaming shots all over the place...
    also the work platform ship I've been building so my template ships aren't so vulnerable.

    I've had to bump my server's block count limit twice to accommodate it. Got to hit that reactor sweet spot though... :)

    OMG MAN!!! Those turrets are amazing, all of them! Do you work in the Defense Sector or something?
    Your work is incredibly believable, looks like those things are real Navy prototypes.
    :cool:

    Thanks muchly. :)
    No I'm not in any sector. Just a guy with a hobby.
    I try to build realistic looking stuff in a realistic way and I take a lot of inspiration from civilian and military ships.

    ^ When things get personal for Boba Fett.
    Yah that seems to be the impression it's giving people :). When building I was thinking more along the lines of a spacemarine or dreadnaught torso with a canopy for a helmet and big guns for arms. Might have to make one with a couple of guns out each side of the keel to make it look even more Firespray esque.

    Very nice build!
    I think I see some ICU scanner in there ;)

    one of the best times when concepts go further and more awesome stuff is created!
