    I'm currently updating my fleet submission ships and the ship that's in the same style but bigger, small drone has systems, the big one is only a shell so far, the three intermediate ships (aka the remainder of the fleet submission) is so far untouched.

    Jesus, that's impressive. That amount of detail.. that would take me literally months. XD

    I've done a few things.
    A) I finished the exterior of the random unnamed thing, it reached the lovely state of I have no idea of what to do with it's interior, haven't touched it for several days.


    The nose probably is the area that changed the most since the last post


    I think this last one shows what kind of changes there have been from the version I last shared here, compare this to the lack of detail seen in the pic with the escape pods from the last post
    B) I've changed up the Excubitor superstructure. Again. Right now (almost directly after having done the changes) I like it. I also plan on changing up the main turrets, I want slightly less "ship in space" aesthetic. Don't worry, only slightly, as you'll (hopefully) be able to tell from the screenshots of the superstructure. Because some people liked the old turrets (there aren't new ones yet) I've attached a sment file of the turret.

    I like metal grills, as you may be able to tell

    By the way, currently the fire control thingies (aka turrets which hit their base from the inside so you don't see them firing because you're not supposed to; all three of them can be seen in this pic) work because the game no longer crashes when that happens (was a bug for a short time years ago) or deals damage to the base even though it's not supposed to (caused me to use 100% of a damage removing effect with old weapons as a workaround). So hey, maybe I'll even do significant progress this year, considering that one of the nice features is no longer broken, so one less reason to have zero motivation.

    Some excubitor progress, now with AMS turrets and what is probably best described as the shells of secondary battery turrets, won't get much wider (I'd say maximum of 20 blocks wider, so 10 per side) 2 larger turrets will come up front, 1 in the rear, I'm thinking of maybe adding a drone bay behind the rear turret, current plan is to use the side walls that will inevitably come for shuttle bays as well as the points where the ship is supposed to dock, most likely USD inspired but potentially not compatible due to me not being too fond of limiting access to the ship to a 3x3 door, but that's in the future anyway and I don't play frequently enough to say when that's going to be (when I play I make decent progress though)

    drones would probably be close to this in terms of looks

    Hey, this still exists. Have a look at the flavour of the month time sink. Idea is about using the central big engines I originally designed for someone else's build. This is obviously a very wip ship (like almost everything in here sadly). If you use the official discord or the CBS discord you may have seen some of this already. Some of these images are a bit outdated.
    This view is the most up to date screenshot and shows the entire ship more or less, after this it's mostly details.

    Hello!
    Do you mind sharing the dimensions?

    One thing I was thinking about is that it would be awesome if those blades were rotating on the XZ axis. In any way, the overall shape would make a neat looking (advanced race) alien ship.

    I did the entire "paint job", also started a core room (wip) and continued detailing. Doing the painting also resulted in me going for a far less busy pattern, most visible on the central piece over the engines.
    And I just realized that I didn't post an image with the finished engines yet. There won't be more and the detailing on the engines is done, however, not on the surrounding areas. I already made a post in the Engine Porn thread for the finished engines.

    Stuff on the core room floor:

    Detailing (1st screenshot slightly outdated):

    Yet to be named carrier got some more detailing and a bit more area in need for detailing.



    It currently has an amazing AMS battery consisting of 10 turrets.
    You also get a slightly odd view at the wip core room, hopefully making it obvious why only it's floor was featured so far.

    Odd view or not that core looks positively epic

    Seriously, I'm jealous.
