      Most Current Ships:

      RF-38B Hibiscus DL Link: HERE
      The RF-38B Hibiscus has basic functionality.
      It is equipped with multiple ingress/egress hangars that can house up to 4 small craft. It has ample cargo storage space, and observation decks, a mutli-floor crew residency area, and a decent array for armament. It is suited for defense against smaller craft and a support role for larger craft.
      As it is aimed towards long term deployment, it has a well equipped living area with secondary and tertiary airlocks in case of emergency and has three fully functional elevators in total, two fore, one aft.
      The starvane engine technology has been refined to slim down its forward profile, and give more space for outboard mounted weaponry all powered by the starvane generator arrays embedded within.
      While it has decent thrust, it is an orbital-only craft, and has not enough thrust for escape velocity, and its power system cannot sustain maximum thrust indefinitely.



      Completed at least 95%:
      RF-17E Cattelya DL Link: HERE
      The Cattelya was originally a semi-military duty ship, but in this updated iteration, it is an exploration craft and scouting ship. Equipped with escape pods on its underside and a small hangar for small shuttles, it's got ample flexibility. It has a medical bay and cryogenics bay as well as an updates weapons array. with its reduced mass, and upgraded turrets, it's fairly quick for its size and can hold its own in a hasty retreat.


      RF-14 Cattelya II DL Link: HERE
      The Cattelya II is the second Cattelya-class ship coming in at 140 meters long. It is equipped for turret warfare using 6 Lotus turrets, and has a respectable 1:1 thrust to mass ratio (not including rail entities). Named after its predeccesor, the RF-17 Cattelya, the Cattelya II promises ample offensive and defensive strength at a better price to performance ratio than its older sibling.



      RF-4 Pearl Egret DL Link: HERE
      RF-4 Super Egret DL Link: HERE

      Named after the floral species known as the white egret, the RF4 Pearl Egret is an elegant fighter, yet does not sacrifice its durability to the altar of artistry. It is a tough, hardy vessel, able to take a few hits from similarly sized craft, and keep flying. It is an endurance-fighter, and has a decent thrust-mass ratio to further enhance its endurance through maneuverability. Mounted on each stub-fin are turrets that are meant to be the primary source of damage, though the main ship's weapons are adequate as well. It has actuated landing gear and entry/exit doors. It can crew 1 person, and has basic accommodations for short flights.

      The Super Egret is a beefed up Pearl Egret with a focus on speed and firepower. Don't let that fool you into thinking it's a ship made of tissue paper. It has a decent featureset including rail doors, rail-actuated landing gear, docked boosters, overdriven system, four turrets, amenities for its crew, and shield supply beams to combat shield-regen reduction during combat.



      DL Link: HERE
      The Tigerlily II

      RF-2P Orchid Fighter DL Link: HERE
      Built shortly after the advent of rail systems, the Orchid makes use of a unique rotating turret design to allow for more damage spread with its short range beam weaponry


      RF-1P Rosemary Fighter DL Link: HERE
      Built for carrier duty, the Rosemary short range scout fighter is relatively inexpensive and is nimble enough to scout high-risk sectors of space. Best used in large numbers, the Rosemary carries two small turrets for light defensive weaponry.

      Prone to feeling homesick? just take your city with you wherever you go! (and rule over it with an iron fist)

      The small-ship catapaults and the staging/queing deck of the spaceport along with the large-ship catapaults in progress. This is the beginning stages of Calatheas city.

      Nice style for the catpults. How big are those, btw?
      Also, how big is your city-ship going to get?
