    Hi guys! Built meself an SV Gyurza https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1487227608 , then thought, what is the best thruster for and SV? Concocted this spreadsheet, attached to the post. It looks like in terms of volume, anything above 'Thruster Jet S' is useless, as it takes too much space. The last three columns are relations between the force produced by a thruster and the respective parameter. As force per mass for jet engines stays pretty much the same for all jet thrusters (~1.6), force per consumption too (~3.9), then if you want to build an effective SV you better stay with 'Jet S' engines. Is this a balance issue, or what?

    I mean, if the efficiency factor for jet engines is the same (here I'm trying to relate game experience to real life, as in the game we are not confined by properties of the materials devices are made of), the relation of thruster output to the size of an engine shouldn't fall like 10 times comparing Jet S to Jet XXL.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, maybe there is some game design idea behind that. At the moment there is no reason in using Jet M+ thrusters other than looks when building your own SV designs.

    Regards,

    There are some topics discussing this somewhere you will have to browse because I do not follow them, but you are right and not the only person to have noticed this, and I believe there is rebalancing of the thrusters system to come soon.

    I myself only use 1x3x1 jets in any build I want to be small fast and efficient.

    EDIT: found this for you

    POLARIS SPACE INDUSTRIES PD-101 'THUNDERSTREAK'

    Polaris Space Industries is expanding on more aggressive vessels in addition to utility, mining and defensive units it's been known for. 'Thunderstreak' is a fast attack dropship for rapid deployment of special forces and other specialized units. It has twelve weapon hardpoints - of which 8 are easily changeable to meet the mission parameters. It is designed to sustain itself thru a short mission away from the supply lines and can warp. Can carry a squad of four soldiers.

    Mohi Sedo Industries is proud to present three small vessels coming right off the line.

    The first is a capable multi-role craft with expansion in place for warp. The second is a popular model similar to a wonderful movie vessel. The third is a heavy hauler (carrying 80 large cargo boxes) in a small and nimble package.

    MSI is a new manufacturer, but there is plenty more to come.

    This little beast called: ERA-S Trike E is the 5th generation of the intial starter SV & POI fighter ERA-S Trike A.
    It is even smaller, costs less iron than the A Version (if weapons were removed), but due to it's weapons, the Ere & Zasc req's are higher than the iron.. :p

    I like to RP a building company in EGS, called HWI (Hazardous World Exploitation) , a bit tongue in cheek with the sales pitch but not the designs.

    HWI has a SV you may like, HWI FightSV Screamer

    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1514340627

    HWIScreamerIntro.png

    stats

    HWIScreamerstats.png

    What's so special about this ? Its small with a small profile, yet has 6 hardpoints for projectile weapons (default Gatlings) and a rocket pod (default dumb fire rockets), detector and a fridge... wait wait , it also has warp capacity.
    Its a long range interceptor / scout with a large fuel capacity and the warp drive for scouting ahead of CV's or quick hops to nearby planets for resources or trade.

    Its drawbacks are that is has a tiny cabin, and while the cabin has O2 supplied there is no O2 station, nor it there a locker or a constructor on this SV.

    How would this look on your CV launch decks, or Base SV landing pads ?

    Thanks for reading, feedback and comments always welcome, and rate it if you like it.

    Here is something completely out of the box, I would of loved to have it in its own thread and then challenge builders to see if they could make one of their own, but I lack privileges to create threads, so I have to put it here... as it technically is a SV.

    What is it ?

    Its a freakin' Gundam :p
    Yep, I went and made a Gundam in EGS, and even more cheekily I named it GundamEGS :p

    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1523400863

    GundamScrn1.png

    and specs:

    GundamSpecs.png

    Yeah, it can actually fly, and has 4 rails and 4 homing and 2 gatlings as default.

    Its not a good SV, more like a crazy thing to have in your base, impractical but fun... also can you image losing to this in a PvP fight ? Or more scary is if you modify it to be PvP capable ? It has plenty of solid blocks to convert to lag armour, the rails could easily be sunk really deep into those rifles, and most of the gear is on the upper body so even if the legs gets stripped away, the Gundam can still operate almost as good as normal (heck, it may even be more effective :p)

    I may be mistaken but I think this is one of the more unique builds out there, and it was fun to build it.
    Check it out, rate it if you like it, and enjoy.
    Thanks for reading.

    I decided to upload this here in cases folks like the concept.
    I can imaging this thing causing a little chaos on a PVP server.

    You can disarm it by using the player drone to turn the signals off in the control panel.
    Otherwise, do not get too close.
