    Went over the fore mentioned changes on my CV - changes of Truster and their positioning, some outside texturing done.

    After much zigzagging through my Star System, visiting several Asteroid Fields and chewing on the way through some Promethium Asteroids

    I finally found a link to another Planet - Pummeled Desert Planet, size 5. Set down near some craters in a zone where the sun never really sets..
    look through my bridges front windows

    Started and finished the Mid section of the new Titan. It was considerably easier without any visually significant parts like the front. Like the original, this section contains just one big room (Hangar). Unlike the original, there's no farm above it on this version, instead there's the crew mess hall and some thruster compartments and (half of some) bathrooms.
    The divide between each section is uneven (as one would expect), but matches the adjacent sections.

    Mid section. The dirt "wake" is sideways on this one. It skidded when it hit the ground.

    Interior view of the Hangar.
    In this version of the MS Titan there's less to loot that's valuable. Smaller thrusters, less Hardened Steel, more deco blocks.
    The original is solid hardened steel, while this one is hardened steel on the outside and regular steel on the inside. It saves on cost, weight and improves maneuverability without sacrificing defense.
    Hell, the Millenium's massive interior is made almost entirely of carbon composite (it's 8x the Titan's size) to cut down on cost and weight (no way i'm making the interior of that out of steel).

    Just about to get started on the final section; Which will probably take longer than the front. I've roughly torn off the front section in the same shape as the break on the mid section, but won't be finalized until I get started on it properly tomorrow... later? (2:21 am atm).
    Chances are the filler blocks will end up ugly and square when converted into dirt and rock, so will probably have to go... or be replaced with special shapable rock (which looks nice on the surface. Not so much underground, where it defaults to iron ore texture).

    Agreed. Bug Report worthy.

    ... While being too stupid to path Stairs any well...? That's kinda a tough sell there. :p

    Hi all, relatively new player. Published my first blueprint to Steam recently and very interested on any feedback/comments/suggestions you may have. Hope you like it and appreciate any advice. Description of the ship and features is on Steam. Thanks.

    I've been working on my end-game BA which I've called "Midas Base". I just published it to the WS so feel free to use/abuse/critique as you see fit.

    Here are some pics along with my favourite CV/SV/HV combo which are now also published.

    Lovin that BA. Very cool weaving of the angled and curvature. Especially the rounded landing pads.

    Nice, simple, utilitarian ship. Good work!

    In fact, when you are done, post that to the workshop. I would love to take a look.

    Front and underside are almost done. Painting, turret placement and a few thrusters will need a bit of nerfing.

    It is in the workshop.

    The one thing I want to work on is the lighting.
    I built it on a custom planet that doesn’t get very dark and when spawned in total darkness the interior need more light.

    Playing around with a possible 4th variation of Crystal moon.

    For some reason, some of the images make me think of the old Dune movie.

    Not often you hear people talk about nerfing thrusters on a BP. Looks sweet.

    Tomorrow (today?) I will go through and set the deco for the biomes and make a custom POI set for this moon using some of @piddlefoot's POIs from his amazing Lost City of Sol scenario. :D

    The moon should have cloudy weather about half the time, and mostly clear the other half, providing two very different appearances, assuming I set it correctly. :D

    For now I better head to bed.

    Now as you have sayed it, i got the dune vibe from the used forms, too.
    Almost like Sting has walked there! ;)

    ---
    Nerfing almost goes naturally while building. I like them with strong and a few week parts. So my brain has to adapt to the situation before me while playing. Perfectly balanced vessels aren't my cup of tea.

    These screenies are a bit dark but i hope you can see enought.
    The front top with details almost done

    I often leave a weakness in my designs for character.

    The white fighter drift strafes excessively in combat for example.

    Little progress on my Citadel Station. Retextured a bit the R level and added some more walls as placeholders. Future storage for reactor level equipment marked.
