    Welcome everyone to ZeroG's first Challenge Build! The goal is simple, I provide a set of build guidelines and you do your best to build from those guidelines! I am a firm believer that setting a few well placed rules and restrictions make you think of new and unique ways of building! So lets dive in!

    Well would you look at that. Purgatory releases its captives at last.

    I present to you the JI-72 (Jump-capable Interdictor) "Stalker", a stealth hunter focusing on ambush and guerrilla warfare, especially for longer missions.

    Now after seeing Fractalite's design I am second guessing my artistic eye.

    Most excellent!

    *Gives @Captain Jack II a Hug and a fifth of Rum* It is character building.... OK really it is Ship-building but working with restrictions helps keep your brain flexible to solve design problems you may encounter in the future. Whether they are soul-eating or not ;)

    At least it wasn't stuck in limbo..... bad for your back, knees, and hips.

    As long as none of them Involve a Horny Rhino, a gallon of honey, and running naked through a Game reserve I'll be good.

    *sighs* Spring break flashbacks. ;)

    Absolutely not Cleft! Do not do that to yourself - you built a nice little fighter here:

    20180210104904_1.jpg 20180210104912_1.jpg

    Like I said in the "What did you do in Empyrion today thread" - ultimately these challenges are about and with respect to yourself. True, Jenn's gonna pick one or we will vote on some and that person gets to strut around for a day or two, but in the end, your designs are always relative to where you are as a builder, and no one else.

    Nicely done!

    As empyrion isnt consistent with its dimension output in blueprintmenu and "p"menu, i have to ask for which one you ask in this challenge?
    WxDxH or WxHxD

    It was stated in a previous thread while waiting for moderation on this one. Long axis is length, short is Height. Whether it is still the 'Manditory' dimensions is up to challenge architect though.

    Interesting use of that Cockpit in a SV. I use that Cockpit Model on my Tyrax Hover War Tank. :D

    Not easy to work with that Cockpit Model's sides cause the Sides & Hull Blocks can't Synergize... but ya made do with what ya could do well. :)

    I bet many in RL would kill to have their Diet work even 1/10,000th that well. :p

    I thought Rules said Max 4 Weapons... *Glares at you in disappointment at your lack of Rule Following Conduct*

    I would default to assuming that her Specs & the Stats Screen Specs Display would synergize... whether or not this is the case though, Clarification can't hurt.

    Plus it's hard to imagine Jenn asking us to make our SVs width & height tall but depth-wise stubby. :p

    For the Topic: My CV Build is almost done & i've Teased it so much I dunno if peeps would Riot if I procrastinate on finishing it when i've drummed up so much anticipation for its eventual Unveiling... which I can only hope peeps don't end up disappointed... plus RL still acts erratic & unstable & Dad's being unpredictable as to when or if he'll show up on Weekday Evenings which screws me up further... but if I actually somehow manage to make a SV Build for this Challenge i'll Submit it... but whether or not I even CAN succeed at getting a Build done by the Deadline is very very uncertain. At least I can at minimum enjoy seeing what others manage to come up with if nothing else.

    P.S. Rule Clarification: Is having a Warp Drive required or optional?
