    Hello, Ranos here and welcome to this post. Today I am holding a contest for a new ship to do my mod reviews in. A £100 Steam Gift Card is up for grabs, more details in the video below.



    This years theme is Warframe. Build a Corpus, Grineer or Tenno style ship.

    Rules:
    1. Build a large ship that is able to fly on planets and space.
    2. It must have a large hangar for the mod reviews to take place in.
    3. The floor of the hangar must be armour blocks so I can place mod blocks on them.
    4. Other rooms it will need to have: Captians Quarters, Craw Quarters for a minimum of 4, 64 max, mess hall, infermery, bridge and briefing room. You can have more types of rooms tho.
    5. Must have an assembler, refinery, arc furnace and uranium centrifuge(?) (Mod block), but can have more then just one.
    6. Must have weapon mount points on this sides and/or top.
    7. Your ship must be complete before entry.
    8. The upload must has "ranos" in the description or title so I can find it.
    Hangar size requirements:
    • Length: 25-30
    • Width: 20-25
    • Hight: 12-15
    Small hangars for small ships are acceptable.

    Here is a world with all the mods I use:
    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=856953111
    You may add more mods, but mainly for cosmetic purposes.

    I'll be judging your entries by the way they look, so the cooler the better.

    Prizes:
    1st: £100 Steam Gift Card
    2nd: £50 Steam Gift Card
    3rd: £30 Steam Gift Card

    10 runner-ups will get a £10 Steam Gift card each.
    (Steam will convert the currency. The test I did last year changed 10GBP to 12.99USD. The amount will be effected by current exchange rates.)

    Entries must be in by 30th April 2018. Winners will be reviled on 10th April 2018

    Couple questions for you:

    1. You say Tenno, Corpus or Grineer style ship. Are you expecting accurate reproductions or simply something that looks like it could be part of that faction?
    2. Is it ok to detail the rooms and corridors specified and leave the rest of the ship empty to save on frame rate, mass and loading time, etc?
    3. Is this vanilla only? if not, are there any limitations on mods we can use?
    4. Do you need the design compatible with thruster damage on?
    5. Does the ship need to land on the ground or can it just hover (some designs will be very difficult to land with)?
    6. Is it ok to use small blocks attached via rotors for detailing?
    7. Is there a maximum block limit or other limitation on size, blocks, or mass?

    Thanks!

    1. Just needs to look like it could be part of the faction.
    2. That will be fine. Hollow pockets are allowed.
    3. Lots of mods can be used. This world was recomended for last years, and I'm going to try and update it: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=856953111
    4. It does.
    5. Landing would be nice, but not needed. My first mod review ship, The Isatamocky couldn't land.
    6. Yes. Just make sure every thing is set correctly so it doesn't smash itself up.
    7. No block limit.

    I hope this helps.

    Can I get a pass on the uranium centrifuge? I'd like to see if I can build the ship totally vanilla. That way You can add the Mods that you like, Personally I go for Vanilla for the challenge.

    As long as there is space from one then it should be fine, like a spare room or something. Don't worry about the convayors for any ether I can use the armoured convayor mod for that.

    Hmm, only one entry by the deadline. I'll be extending the deadline to 30 April, no more extentions will be given after that. If there is still one entry then they will automaticly win 1st place.

    Here's a walkthrough of my Dark Nebula design. All I need to do is some more automation and polishing.

    Thanks! Sadly I've never played Warframe.
    I find most damage in SE is caused by block deformation, that is the reason behind the double hull..
