Spacecraft Building Competition! (Poll)
« on: October 24, 2011, 03:59:09 am »
Alright so my last competition didn't go well...Probably because making small craft is currently really hard to do.
NEW COMPETITION!
I'm asking anyone here to build a ship, any shape, any size and no requirements at all!

Rules are!
 - Must be started from scratch, not allowed to use anything pre-built.
Yeah not many rules.

So I'm thinking 30 days to build! A poll will be put up at the end of the time limit where everyone can vote for there favourite design.

There isn't much to gain from doing this apart from bragging rights I guess. Maybe the devs can add the winning ship to the game *hint*

Can it be... a space station? Or does it have to be a ship?

I'm in. I really hope no one cares if its based on an existing design. I really love the design of a certain sci-fi ship and would like to reproduce it here.

Does the competition start now?  I'm assuming so, because I've already started  ;)

Here's a question is there a limit to how many ships you can submit or is it just 1 per person?

Just to answer a few questions.

Yes submit as many as you would like.

Can it be... a space station? Or does it have to be a ship?
You can build a space station if you like!

Yes its already started :P

Looks like I'm the first one to submit something so here it goes, let me know what you think

Ships name - Agrona

Classification - Heavy Frigate

Description - The Agrona is designed primarily for fleet escort duty and to be the first line of defense for protecting larger capital ships. It has a small forward hanger capable of holding 2 small fighters/shuttles. The interior has lots of open space to allow for modifications extra weapons and ammo storage. It also has (until we get real reactors) two battery reactors acting as its primary power source.

Current weapons layout - 2 x side mounted  11 x 5 plasma cannons
                                         2x upper bridge guns of 8 plasma cannons each
                                         2x lower bow guns (under hanger) of 5 x 18
                                         1x static turret (top) with 2 barrels 9x2 each

That argona is particully nice, although it seems as though you lost creativity at the engine

Thanks Vorgra, yeah the engine wasn't coming together for me for some reason. When we finally get reactors and some other engine related components I'm planning on gutting and redoing the whole engine/life support area

The angles and Suspended Plating you did at the front would look ideal at the rear, with the exception it would have to like 'Finish' the ship of such.
