    99 salvage output miner for server use. Works pretty good and had a lot of spare room inside to make a crazy interior.

    your ships are so simple shapes yet look soooo good. wish i could learn how to do that. Whats your usual workflow for building a new ship?

    Thanks for the compliment!

    Useally I have some sort of shape in my head which I use as reference (It never looks the way i imagined by the time i finish). Some fun idea's i try to implement with eachother in one ship and then build the rest in between.

    I always start with the white Armor plates cause this gives you the best image of what its gonna look like in the end. once i got these worked out i start with some rough shapes of the dark grey standard. 9/10 times i start with the engines cause these have a very basic shape in my mind which makes it easy to build and this gives you a good image of the back of the ship.
    The part i struggle the most with is the front. cause trying to detail a flat front is a challenge to keep it interesting. Thats why ive started working with more assymetry with my newer ships like you see above. takes some more work but in the end it pays off.

    (I also always work with the same 6 blocks in my inventory bar. when im building the outside these never leave the belt: Grey hull, Dark grey hull, white hull, Grey standard, dark grey standard, white standard and sometimes grey advanced)

    I hope that answers your question. If not feel free to ask some additional questions!

    thanks! so basically you start off with the plates to match the general shape of what youve thought of then you do the silhouette parts (dark grey standard) afterwards? Yee I reaaaally love the plate style you and Tshara do and have wanted to for a long time to be able to make without looking like a bunch of squares attached to a grey blob XD

    Beautiful work! Very original hull designs, and extreme, Thasra-esque level of cleanness in execution, with nice subtle details.

    Love the uniform white-on-grey color scheme of your fleet! Looking forward to a closer look of the other ships too.

    Also, consider this perfect nebular gas intake design stolen, I'm using it from now:

    Running out of finished ships really quick. (technically this one isnt finished either) If there is interest i can bring in older designs into this thread. but for now... this is my light cruiser. around 70k mass ship.

    fleet overview.
    I started building this ship around 3 years ago this was before i got extremely busy with school/college. The ship has been build over the past 3 years with small changes between updates of the game. Interior is far outdated to the new interiors im building now, Systems are even worse. The exterior of the ship is mostly done but still missing some details on the belly of the ship.

    Yes thats the way i do it, and believe me i also have a lot of times were the shape just doesnt work out and i move back a few steps. thats why it takes me hours to just get a general shape.
