Behold, Jimbobslimbob Industries have been hard at work, bringing you the latest in ultra-slimbob-tech ships, straight to your, er, door.

Haven't built any of these in our MP game yet as they are hungry for credits and resources, but they are there for future use.

The Hathor is all Trinium and the Sulaco is all Naonite.

Well, TCT for that. I stuck the XML's up incase anyone wants to try them out - they are both made for use in our MP games - i.e. they have practical uses other than just looking decent, contain all you should need and handle well.

Stick them in %appdata%\Avorion\ships if you want to test 'em out. Likewise, if any of you guys create something that some of us may like to give a whirl, please upload your ship files via the website "Upload File" feature and share them here with some juicy screenies.

Bear in mind you may have to Right-click and "save as...", since your browser may think the XML file is a webpage and go nuts/not load it/show errors etc.

I just kinda been messing about in creative really, seeing what I could do and attempting to figure out all the nuances of ship creation. Hence the "eureka" moment I had last night with the inertial dampers. Neither ship actually took that long to make, but with time and patience I rekon you could create some truly amazing stuff if you were so inclined - the builder is really robust.

I have had a couple of goes at building a bigger ship both unsuccessful.

The first ended up like a giant flying penis and the other one was really expensive.

However i have learn a lot and i am sure my next attempt will be shiny :-)

Greg would love the cock-ship. You should let him have it and paint it pink, for extra awesomeness.

The general piece of advice I would give is not to make it complicated - and build from the inside > out, ignoring all hull and armour blocks until last.

Yes i thought it would be a good idea to raise them up for better field of fire and easy to upgrade to the next material.

It is a bit of a beast about 3 times the size of my current ship massive shield 100K + and 17 sectors jump drive.

I looking forward to spawning it in multiplier but at 4.4 million and 300K of Xanion it will take some more saving.  Well over half way there though.

I just couldn't match the sleek lines of the dustcart :-)

Yes, very nice Meg. Does it still have the snake face (looks very similar to the other ship)?

I did a similar thing with raised areas for turrets. You will soon find it is a complete waste of time though. Unless your ship handles like a dog, you more often than not want to face the enemy head on, so turret placement ends up being pointless and you simply sling 'em all on the front of the ship. This is even more pronounced on larger ships since the actual range of most weapons is fairly short - and the further you put them "back" on the ship, the more you notice how dreadful range is.

I think they could do with extending the range of every single weapon in the game to be honest - since you can build some pretty massive stuff in this game.

The front is similar to my last one so does look a little snakey.  I will see how it goes with the turret mounts i can always take them off.

Yes i agree the range on some of the turrets is very short could do with being bigger.
