    This is too ridiculous to resist. I added a couple of fridges and a pair of cargo boxes. I want to see how far I can get with this kit and everything set to hard. It ends if the CV is irreparably damaged.

    I've updated my Blueprints for Warpy and Drilly (see Page 1) with SingleThrust and DoubleThrust-Shortcuts in the ControlPanel.
    With SingleThrust they qualify easily, but for aesthetic reasons I won't update the outline...

    I dispute this with my submission. I Loath this thing's esthetic But it fits the challenge with constructor group turned off. Nicely featured for a flying hatbox. *edit* Updated because I missed the Omicron NoRedline Requirement. It does now. *addendum to edit* crammed some more stuff in. Yellow 2 vector flight on Omicron FWD+UP. *comes back and sighs* OK Now it fits the bill lol.... hope you guys don't mind a flying greenhouse.

    I have continued to work on the project and I think I have completed the ship.
    It's an overhaul of my Jumping Jack, but it now has an air-tight cabin and a full survival load out.
    I'm debating on what I am going to call the thing.
    It maxes out at 84% in Omicron's atmosphere, but it's a little slow. (16 m/s2 in all directions).

    I was feeling a little silly and made this part, I call it a thrust-star.
    All 6 of the thrusters, in a "star" on the rear of the ship.

    I made my final tweaks, moved the thrust-star lower and added two more cannon turrets.

    So, my entry for the single small generator CV challenge is the Schlock Runner.

    Great build. This is one challenge I may be able to do. Going to get on it now . . . if my ADD will not tear me away. LOL

    Now all we need to do is hire an Amorph carrying a plasma cannon

    Ok so I have a few old builds that fit this.
    All fly with ease and I have just added stats pics to all 4 entries as they are very old mostly pre 6.0

    First is not my exclusive design but i built the sealed cockpit for 6.0 and re released it.
    1 small gen
    no red or yellow lines
    cheap as hell
    warp capable
    fridge
    nimble.

    Second entry I made myself, an attempt at minimalist size survival cv.
    no redlines or yellow
    1 small gen
    constructor
    gravity
    all survival extras
    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=927536597

    Third entry made myself
    has 2 gens but removed 1 and it functions without red or yellow
    a small huntig ship for planets.

    last entry, tier 1 sv made as a cv !
    1 single small gen however this vessel does redline 119% forward and back
    95% left to right, still though worthy of a mention as it functions great and has a long fuel time.

    @Furious Hellfire nice ones, but are you sure you won't be in red with these amount of thrusters (1st has 8, 4th has 12)?
    You have to make THREE direction movement to test proper, I always use W and D and Mouse Movement simultant, then the maximum amount of simultan thrusters are active!
    Because my tests did show, if you exceed a maximum of total 7 thrusters and 1 RCS, you will get red...:(
    2nd and 3rd are exactly the most wanted ones ;)

    True, I have found that 6 small thrusters pretty much maxes out what a small generator can do, unless you sacrifice a lot of internal devices.
    My entry maxes out at 85% during atmospheric flight, if I add just one more small thruster it redlines the generator.

    I have a little free time, so lets test and see which ships meet the challenge.
    Please note, if the ship does not have only 1 small generator it was disqualified.
    Also, I am not including the "Examples" I posted in the beginning of the thread.

    @Dinkelsen
    I tried to find your ship in the workshop so I could test it, I guess you have not published it.

    Both of these max out at 96% during atmospheric flight on single thrust, 143% on max thrust.

    Sadly, I got the generator on this one to 244% during atmospheric flight.

    It defiantly meets the power requirements, just do not get shot. :D

    It meets the power requirements, and it kinda reminds me of a wizards tower.

    Nice looking, but 118% in atmo, I had a little trouble steering it in the beginning, then I realized the RCS was turned off.

    I found the RSC turned off on this one as well, it gets 97% in atmo, redline.

    I could not get this thing past 48%, good job.

    Actually, I got it to 166%.

    So, here are the current submissions that do not redline the generator.
    My entry is on the left, it maxes out at 85% on Omicron, yellow, but not red.
    Keep them coming guys, I am enjoying what you are coming up with.

    <laughing> I read that web comic as well.

    Since it's a low level ship you do not take into combat, (run away) I felt schlock was appropriate.
    I have been debating on "distressing" the ship, making it look old and dilapidated.

    schlock
    noun: shlock; plural noun: shlocks

    cheap or inferior goods or material; trash.
    "they peddle their schlock to willing tourists"

    okay, 96% too much, "single thrust" still has 2 thrusters down (for a 7 thrusters total), so when changing one of the Down-Thrusters, it would match.
    Mining-Machine... I had to check myself... way too long I did use that,
    but you're right, it has 2 S-Thrusters (or 1 M) on each side. Too much.

    Wait, does that make me a schlockmeister? :D
    My Schlock Class CV would already be taking me around the solar system if I hadn't started another game from the same seed to chase a bug. Should be back on track as soon as I kill a few POIs and can some food.

    Negative! You Like M.C. Escher. We know the schlock is just a front!
