    Mr. IceCat's Bluedart is still one of my all time favorites:

    Such a perfect little ship.

    It's a nice ship, the only things that I found questionable was that the generator is exposed and that the bottom "fins" hit the ground.
    Minor, but you know me.

    The white Dart on the other hand, that blueprint needs updating.
    If thruster obstruction is turned on, the white Dart is in trouble because many of the thrusters are blocked by walkway blocks.
    Or, in the case of the reverse thrusters, steel blocks.

    One thing that always puzzled me, the damaged Dart is quite a bit different from the blue and white models.
    Just pointing that out, here is a damaged Dart that I repaired next to the other two.

    The Walkway Blocks - those that look like stairs - are AFAIK the only ones who 'function' with the obstruction Rule.

    I thought it was just the last two shutter blocks.
    They are the only ones I have seen with "Obstructs Thruster: False" in the description.

    I sit corrected, I found two more that say that.
    Either way, for the thread topic I am going through the story line again and have made my way to the pirate base.

    IIRC ..the Dart PreFab/PDA Mission SV has those Walkways in Place over the Rear Thruster.
    Otherwise the PreFab would use Titanium in its Built(Sathium of the earlier Days).
    But yes, the Shutter Blocks do as well.

    The journey from Alpha to Decerurba and everyplace you could visit in a single jump along the way using a standard warp drive and +6 PilotLYRange based on Reforged Eden pilot/navigators navigation data research.

    This submap was generated after visiting only a few nodes around Alpha; the rest were bookmarked in the stellar view as potential waypoints.

    Having started this in roughly January 2020 this has taken a while, but finally finished the shaping and texturing of my Terraforming poi. Just signal logic, proper setup of NPCs....and the dreaded LCDs (I hate doing them lol) and it'll be 100% complete :)
    (ignore the gravity gen in the front, I build in space and forgot to remove it lol)

    Definitely the biggest and most complicated (to build) poi I've ever done, didn't expect it to be such in my mind it was going to be a lot smaller lol

    No. Good things take time. And this POI is a GOOD one. Very nice.

    I have to say that that looks amazing, who cares how long it took, it was clearly worth it seriously job well done looking forward to seeing it in game. Also i think a 'terraforming poi' is one i've not seen before huge thumbs up

    I think it's because those stairs/rails are marked as "not airtight". Eleon should update the tooltip and the model not to obstruct thrusters. It's a prefab and still in the current build so I assume it's intentional. The one stair variant looks almost identical to one of the vent selections so it gets used a lot.

    sulusdacor also has made the Red Dart variant. Which maintains the general body shape of the blue type but adds support for a lot of newer features like the shield.

    Sadly, it's a very old blueprint and the White Dart has a more glaring issue with the reverse thrusters.

    The bottom ship is the one in the library, I removed 2 blocks from the top one.

    Strange the last time I spawned one in I swear the reverse thrusters weren't blocked like that. I want to say it had trussing instead. It's been a while since I actually used it though so maybe I'm confusing it with another prefab. Who was the original author of the the Dart?

    There's quite a few Prefabs that need to be overhauled or replaced due to multiple factors. I'm not sure how many new players Empyrion actually sees but if they spawn in some of these prefabs they're in for a rude awakening.

    The two worst words in any developers vocabulary.
    Backwards Compatibility.

    From the infocard, the Blue Dart was made by Luke.
    The White Dart was made by Reaper.
