    Only 81.2 tons. OOF.

    I've been designing an SV for a character in my campaign, her own personal fighter craft, and the thing is already 74.5 tons and I haven't even shaped the bottom or rear thruster nacelles yet. I really need to start using thinner blocks....and I should probably stop shaping out my own wing variants and use the modulars...old habits.

    Anyway, nice job.

    I stoped working on the Scenario, gives me more time to build what I like and prefer more… CV's :)

    Actualy doing a re-build of one from Scratch of an existing one - for the very first time, too much 'space' to move around and rearange…
    Now that it's class I think of starting from scratch again… with another work-method…

    Thanks alot, I've been updating it Performance wise… :p

    Replacing 'a' with 'some more of other' thrusters can make a big difference :)

    EDIT PS:
    In the back is the Starwarden MK1 by H.P. Lovecraft, which is NOT what I rebuilt, that would be the CVX Revenant MK2 (a remod of the 'Aurora', I think?) by Goons.
    However, the Starwarden is a great ship, very, very detailed and an awesome source of Inspiration!

    I wanted to put together the smallest possible warp sv I could manage.
    Initially I made just a tiny non warp pod for my CV to be docked in a hangar only 1 block height 2 block wide and 2 block deep.

    In the end I made a non warp with and without passenger and also a warp with and without passenger

    And a warp passenger version in HWS livery (intended to pass out to stranded shipless players)

    Worked on the Midnight planet. It's inspired by this explanet. A blistering, high gravity planet with a dense atmosphere and almost no visibility with huge gold deposits guarded by Ghyst POI complexes. I don't really have any screenshots since, well, it's dark. Really dark. Night vision is an absolute necessity and even then you just barely make out the nearby terrain features.

    Fun fact: Ghyst POIs have core self destruct switches. Throwing them is a bad idea on this planet unless you have epic armor on. :D

    Started a new game after getting my poor SV nuked by a Zirax POI. Decided to try turning Volume/Mass on and holy poop, it's a whole new experience. Might end up having to build lots of HVs and SVs for different jobs. I set the resource amount to Rich to alleviate this issue, however.

    Also quickly finding that green hovers suck.

    They're great for making a very compact runabout HV with minimal capabilities since you don't need thrusters, but yeah, as soon as you get into cargo or weapons, you have to switch to the blue ones.

    I'm in middle of another bout of Builder's Block... powered partially by my OCD being a tyrant as usual... :(

    Glad to have ya back here. :)

    Yeah... they were Implemented before Weight & Volume were... nowadays they're mostly for makin custom Hover Bikes/Starter HVs. Even for Starter HVs they might be runnin outta use.

    Worked on the Pelican CV refit a bit more. This time working on the passenger area.

    Medical got an upgrade, full suite. More than just a med station. So gave it a glass barrier to separate it from the primary living space.

    Entertainment suite is really the same, just shifted the walls a bit.

    And, oh yeah, yesterday I started putting the walls up in engineering. Not done yet, but the space is making progress.

    It's quite fun and very much enjoying see 'DONE' hallways come into existence and connect to each other :D
    But... Getting alot of quit&mail Errors, as continue wont work.
    And quite often i cant select blocks anymore.. only restarting the game helps.. :( very annoying!

    Anways, currently laying out the hallways for the ship, helps alot to estaminate the actual required dimensions of the ship!

    As I am now honored with the Polaris I thought, after finding 8 of my 11 Planets- 2 more and the Alien - it is time to place a Dimplomatic Building within the ZOC of the Polaris:D.

    (BA) Roman Embassy - WIP (yeah, I noted the Typo:oops:)
