    Ive been working on this ship all week, Its huge. I plan on going exploring with it. It has 5 Large resource containers, 6 Large reactors. When its using full afterburner, it reaches speeds up to 72m/s, reaching only 78% reactor capacity. Starts and stops on a dime, turns almost too fast. Only a few thrusters are hidden. the back engines arent finished yet, i plan on reinforcing them a tad.
    Tell me what you think!!!

    Ahm.... i dont know what to say... its AWSOME!!!!!!

    But i think in a "real" battle you will lose your rear Engines very Fast!... :p
  3. Joeliosis Trainee Engineer

    Agreed, but it's already too fast for its own good, to lose the back engines would only slow it down a lil bit.
    Thanks for the comment. The hip is still a work in progress

    Hehe, one of my ships is also called the Leviathan :p

    Nice job, it reminds me of the Tantive IV from Star Wars
  5. Joeliosis Trainee Engineer

    The bow of my Explorer does kinda look like Tantive's. only mine is a biiiit bigger. :D Most of the front hull is "Armor". Other than a few small thrusters and a couple headlights, the bow is about 6 blocks thick

    Is it possible to share ships/game saves? This looks like it would be fun to take for a spin :)
  7. Joeliosis Trainee Engineer

    :D :D :D :D. You can post save games to steam workshop

    Yeah, you can look up "Geo-Scout Microship" for the steam workshop address. I have to update it though. The link on there is a save game from yesterday, when the cruiser was only half finished. Check back in like 4 hours, ill post the save game after I get off work

    Here ya go, type this in the URL bar in the steam overlay

    Theres not many Airlocks on the ship, you can enter through the docking bay. The cockpit is accessible by a ladder in the midsection, or the lazy way; the busted window on the side where there should be 2 panels. # entrances in the rear.
    Space base has a secret entrance into the crust of the asteroid, its actually completely hollow. Neat thing there.
    Have fun

    Your design is pretty interesting.
    I still try to find a good one for me. :)
  10. TechyBen Junior Engineer

    Completely and utterly impracticable design there... which looks wonderful!
  11. Joeliosis Trainee Engineer

    Impracticable?! lol The engines maybe... But I like the design! The engines are spread out, so if I take a direct hit to the rear, theres a slim chance theyll knock them all out. A hit to the "Halo engine-mounts" wont knock out all of the rear engines, they should hold on. Ill do some crash tests just to be sure of my Hypothesis :p

    You should make a secondary bridge aka Battle Bridge. Your bridge area is too exposed. In a heated battle, you are exposed to every danger that you will face with this ship. So maybe that your main bridge can act as your everyday exploration / Mining, while you hide yourself in a more protected battle bridge. I wonder about the inside
  13. Joeliosis Trainee Engineer

    Ill post more pics of the inside, it's veery spacious. I agree with your idea, I just like being able to see the whole ship from the bridge. I think I'll take you up on that idea. Maybe some red walls.... Tactical room
  14. Joeliosis Trainee Engineer

    Oh, and btw, the tower on top of the ship just houses a large thruster, I meant for that to be
    Like a battle bridge, lots of turrets will be mounted there. The pilots chairs are below the tower, accessible by ladder.

    I like this kind of constructive criticism though, that's what designing ships is all about
