    Todays nice ship:
    SCVN-Retribution

    [​IMG]

    "With a design heavily influenced by battlecruisers (and Star Citizen), this carrier can not only release swarms of fighters, but swarms of missiles and pure devastation as well."

    I have to admit, I never actually loaded this ship ingame, its in a world file, and Im very lazy. But just seeing the awesome pictures and the few subscribers tells me that this ship should be mentioned here. The workshop entry is a bit older, but still really nice to look at.

    It uses some custom (small grid) turrets and a few mods. You should check out his other creations (like his Osprey).

    Creation of the day:

    Deep Space Mining Outpost and Frigates


    [​IMG]
    "Large small craft hangar with ample parking space. Under-the-deck manufacturing facility for maintenance & repair of small craft. "Fly-through" hangar access, allows entry from either side of the station."

    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=198476672

    Yeah, I had to dig a while in my favourites to find this old entry, it was released in Nov. 2013. Its not very functional, most features from todays SE were not ready at that time. I just love the shape, the structures on the surface of the station. The first moment you see it, you immediately know its something spacey and in my opinion the reason is the creator who did an awesome good job shaping this thing and giving it this nice feel of all good scifi franchises.

    The paint on the Arizona inspired me to overhaul my fleet. Nice find.

    I would post here more often if I could find more ships that I liked and weren't massively popular. However, I did find something today:

    F-42 Resolve (Heavy Fighter)
    [​IMG]
    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=412515009&searchtext=F-42+Resolve

    I like the shape on this one, and the dark-gray coloring works on it. I have yet to see how it handles, though. As you might be able to tell, it uses quite a bit of heavy armor.

    Something a bit different from me today...

    [​IMG]

    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=416029494&searchtext=

    Ignoring the fact that this is extremely, extremely heavily modded and I"m not quite sure of the value of an Amphibious Truck in space, the detailing on this had my jaw hit the floor. Every single block is rather masterfully placed to add to the overall feel.

    The author's workshop is also worth a look... hasn't quite got the presentation sorted but you can see growth towards some excellent and detailed designs... the Coppelion in particular has some superb detailing and a few particularly good shapes to it (the cowling round the two titan engines for example). Over the course of several ships the interiors have become extremely detailed as well, even if they are a little oddly coloured etc at time. The large-small ship before the Truck is also well worth a look.

    One to watch I think!

    The Dwarven colony ship by FancyFez (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=279531348)


    i like seeing fantasy (medfan) and science fiction mixing together. Works with a lot of other improbable combinations.

    Creation of the day:

    T-501-1 Melchior

    [​IMG]

    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=378414431&tscn=1427652075

    "T-501-1 Melchior is light cruiser, specially designed to defence stations and planets."

    Im really a fan of this one, I really like the shape, the set of colors. Perfect in simplicity, I think adding more optical features to it would ruin the whole ship. If I had not found this ship on the workshop I would have built it myself.

    One thing to criticize: I dont really agree with the arrangement and amount of turrets. Too many of them and stacked up in a line, so they cant all fire forwards.
    But still one of my alltime favourites. And hopefully soon with vanilla armor ramps.

    Ship of the day:

    GT Carrier MkII

    [​IMG]

    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=293139149

    "Relatively light for her size and completely unarmed, she relies constant cover from her strike craft and is not intended to be fielded in close engagements."

    I would love the creator to update and reupload this wonderful ship. If he doesnt feel like it, I hope he will allow me to do it for him. I would add some weapons and some better protection for the thrusters though.

    I've always been a fan of this:

    [​IMG]

    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=236888080

    I really like the aggressive styling and shape, the colour scheme and the fact it seems survival legit. It's just badass.

    "Chimera captains have even been known to fly into battle, exhaust all their ammunition, and then spear enemy ships with the forward facing wings." Yes.

    Seems to me like an Alliance Cruiser from Mass Effect 3. I like the style! The wings seem like they have little function though...

    Creation of the day:

    Tartarus MK II NAVY

    [​IMG]

    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=290331089

    "This the non captured and refitted ship of the Tartarus Cruiser."

    I like the bulky style of this ship, some people really know how to build with the old armor blocks. The new ramps allow sleeker, thinner designs but sometimes behemoths like this one don't profit from them.
    Reminds me of the Federation cruiser from FTL. I loved this game.

    Creation of the day:

    Blue Shield II battle carrier 苍蓝之盾II战斗运载舰(1.02)

    [​IMG]


    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=264393517

    The first version of this ship got much attention on the workshop back in these times. I was really happy when I saw him update his Shield Carrier to Mk II. However it wasnt that famous on WS, thats why I show it here. Its nearly one year old, but crafted with much effort. Internals could use an update perhaps...

    Ballista - Support Vessel

    [​IMG]

    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=288967484

    A really high quality creation I discovered a long time ago now.
    The functionnalities are now a bit oldish, but the overall design of this ship is still perfect.

    With an unreasonable use of rotors, this ship has a lot of "secrets" to reveal. It's really fun to play with, but I doubt it would be usable out of the discovery context.

    A true classic, the most impressive ship at its time ...
    ... the 'parasite' mining rig

    [​IMG]


    Workshop: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=205753527

    Considering that it got released early december 2013, shortly after release, its lets the ingenious design and function shine even more. It simply was unmatched. Over the months i havent seen many ships to reach that level in mining.
    By that i dont mean to have uselessly fancy mechanisms but actual mechanisms that work and simply do their job.

    The detailing... external and internal... on that mothership is incredible. That's love right there.

    Here is one of the best built fighters I have seen to date. And what is more amazing is its 100% mod free and only uses 80 something blocks in total.

    Steam Workshop: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=409724444

    Ravric continues to turn one excellent design after another. And now here is the mind blowing part, one year ago the design looked like this

    [​IMG]
    Steam Workshop: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=264787984

    I just show how far this game has come in just one year and how radically a good engineer can improve
    upon their designs. When I see the two side by side it almost as if two different people built them.

    You've burst my bubble, I thought Rav was born an SE genius.

    On the plus side, that means there is hope for my designs - they all look like version 1, or worse.
