    My brick made it to Masperon and I made it a nice base there in a swamp. Gathered a few thousand zascosium, fixed up the base and flew it back to Akua to get more iron and magnesium and stuff! :p

    I do like this idea and challenge even if just to prove we do not need tomax everything.
    I have a lot of projects that may meet these limits.

    Here are some HV based on Space 1999:
    To the left; the flat top tank, to the right the eagle tank. Both have 2RCS and 5 thrusters.

    JFFWW1_2016-11-08_10-38-57.png And the little moon buggy with 1 RCS and 4 thrusters.

    Based on the UFO series:
    The SHADO jeeps with 1 RCS and 4 thrusters.
    JFFWW1_2016-11-08_11-09-48.png

    The SHADO mobiles with 1 RCS and 6 thrusters.

    Inspired in the ancient WW1:
    The Austro D PZW with 1 RCS and 4 thrusters.

    I love all the designs presented in this challenge, it is obvious the EGS community has a boat load of creative guys and gals.

    I will like to contribute with a few of my ships too, following the same philosophy of overall small designs with maximum two RCS, one or two generators, and few weapons if applicable. I try to make them practical, affordable and more or less with a decent look.

    Lets start with the HV. Below are three models with similar frame, one designed for a trigger-happy copilot:
    [​IMG]

    These are two support SV, one for general work and the other specifically designed for "Noob Support" but that can also work as a drop ship:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The next two are PvE / CoOp combat SV, the one in the right for Air (or Space?) superiority and the one on the left for Attack sorties. This last one is actually good against POI´s because of the small frontal area:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    A few more SV designs, the one on the left is loosely based on the Battlestar Galactica Cylon Ryder, with two rocket launchers, specially designed for my friend JohnStar (Wiked Server), the other is just a basic service platform:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Last but not least, the CV. Both designs have the general equipment expected (Fridge, Constructor, Kitchen, Medic, O2, etc.) can transport three - four passengers and are fast and affordable to construct, the only difference is that the one in the foreground has 18 grow plots for extended operations and a small hangar in the back for one SV and one HV:

    Hmmm... Edited trying to correct why the images don´t show...and a few typos :D

    Passenger side has a mini-fridge for the hotdogs and pop, and the dashboard is a constructor in case the park doesn't have a fire pit.

    I tend to design everything I make in creative, then field test in survival. I've not done that many new designs lately since I've not been that much in the game itself during last half a year, buttttttt... About all the ships I've made so far fit well under those limits since I play only PvE and even that mostly on co-op with other people.

    All you really need for a survival game is something like this:

    My Bear-essentials ™ fleet
    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=647035603

    Or my standard toolkit, which I use in every survival game I play:

    Although, that last pocket cruiser II is currently above the allowed gun limits :/
    You really don't need much for PvE :D

    4 RCS max? Ya ask a lot dude. It takes 4 RCS to get enough Torque outta a Potato with a Cockpit & Thrusters Duck Taped on. :p

    I'm also a big fan of his Giant Diamond! :D

    For the Topic:

    Only just found this Thread. Hope this is better late the never. This dude was Built in Survival during past MP play & I liked how it fared better then I originally thought it would... was gonna be just temporary initially, but when it proved capable of downing POI Turrets to prep them to be Assaulted & surviving, often losing only the Spotlight, sometimes not even that, I decided it was an outright keeper & outright BPed it. I may make a Revision 2 that's less Barebones but same general idea behind it someday...

    Thruster Count: 12 RCS Count: 2

    Even my barebones emergency stuff has to be violently armed! :p

    I've managed to lose my O2 Tank & Fridge once or twice before.

    This is the end of the SV I wanna NEVER point towards the Enemy Guns. :p

    Interestingly i've not yet thus far lost my O2 Dispenser or Salami MakerMobile Constructor. :D

    This Screenie will give ya the best view of this dude's Firepower. :cool: Also note the Guts is real, having the explodable Ammo Box sitting right next to my HEAD while Flying this dude. :p

    The 2 Middle Landing Pads are sometimes annoying to find a Multitool Angle to reach them to repair, but I firmly believe not having them there would be a real bad idea. (Especially cause one of them is providing cover to the Ship's Core.)

    Fun fact: This dude has ZERO Hull Blocks in its Design. :p

    There's times when i've wondered what it'd be like to see an entire swarm of these dude flying in formation into battle.

    I made this CV back in the early testing phase of 0.6 as a cheap replacement to the prefab T1 simply because those ships were flat out dangerous by then. If you want to see it for yourself then you can get it on the steam workshop (link below). It was one of my first designs and even if my build skills are still sorely lacking this thing looked... bland, very bland. It was on the other hand very energy efficient and cheap to build. The roof was made flat so that if you wanted to use it as a base you could put 6 turrets on top.
