    Hey guys,

    My first SF TV series ;)
    I dont know if here are many fans of this TV series, but I saw some 40+ useres, so if anyone is interested in exchanging ideas / blueprints, related to this tv movie, we could do it here.

    So far I built the eagle transporter and started my own version of the moon base.

    I would if I have the time and talent to do it. Your Eagle looks great so now you have to do a Hawk.

    Hate to say it, but I own the entire DVD boxset :) What you've done looks great.
    A "Space 1999" dedicated server would be fun to play.

    The Moon Base is growing.
    Thank the glowing block which we can use now in creative mode, we can make the big structures looking more interesting.

    Haha, when I got Space Engineers the Eagle was the very first thing I started to build! I even went so far as to make a large ship version that had the ability to dock/undock the command module, engine module, and cargo area. Of course, it blows itself up every time I try to move it with all of the current rotor and piston issues on that game, but it looks cool. Heh.

    I love this show and this ship ie the Eagle Transporter. Now all we really need is for Empyrion devs to add in wheeled vehicles to we can create the assorted support vehicles :) I think I will try to build an Eagle in survival once I am sure I can deal with the drones.

    Whats the actual length of the mothership in metres in this show ?

    I think we should ask the developers for 3000m length grids !

    Thank you.

    I have reworked the Eagle Transporter. Now you can walk inside, added the new doors.
    Changed postion of many important parts.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Funny story about this version happened to me, while I was reworking this ship.

    After I was nearly finished with the work, I thought it would be nice to test the new version.
    But unfortunately I did a newbie mistake and forgot to add the down thrusters ...

    ... what should I say, as I noticed this thing is flying into space, I did a second mistake.
    In panic, I pressed "T" accidentally and it seems, the game does not recognize "drifting" as ship moving.
    So, I was out of the ship and my new shiny Eagle was about to disapearing in space.
    Not to mention, I did not blueprint it at this time ;)

    I tried to catch up the Ship with my Jetpack, but it was too fast.

    I went for another, older Eagle, which was standing on the near landing pad.
    To get down faster, I disabled the Jetpack, falling like a stone.

    Murphy's laws, the ship was out of fuel, so I had to add few fuel packs first.
    After losing valuably seconds, I was finally able to start and try to catch up the drifting ship.

    I tried to fly above and this way to stop the ship, but any way at this time it stopped to move and started to fall dawn.

    Well, ... it was falling like a brick and I was not able to do anything, just watching.

    The impact was heavy and the explosion was movie ready ...

    The whole back part of the ship exploded (there were all the fuel tanks, generator, RCS's, etc.).

    At front one plasma gun exploded too. Near the whole bottom part of the ship was destoyed or heavy damaged, the back part was completly disapeared and the landing pad was looking like a swiss cheese ;)

    Took me about an hour to repair all this damage :D

    CONCLUSION: don't test your ship on the moon, while there are any directional thrusters missing :D

    Anyway this was something like a real SPACE 1999 episode ;)

    I love it all mate! Thank you for sharing.
    I wish there was a way to at least paste a hologram or transparent blueprint ingame so you can fill it in while in Survival mode. Gah come on Developers get to it. Space Engineers is a grand example of where you are going with Empyrion!

    Very nice Eagle.

    Space 1999 was one of my fave shows when i was a kid (I'm *cough* 50+). I even had The Eagle Spaceship "toy". It was by far my favorite when I was a kid . Wish I had kept it, would be worth a fortune collectors edition today.

    Looking forward to when the blueprint is available, would be great to revisit in a game I currently play.

    I also own the DVD box set for Space 1999. This was my first sci-fi series also. Just bought the game yesterday. Happy to see I can maybe look forward to making my own Eagle someday.
