    If you hold left control and use your mousewheel you can zoom in windows. ;)

    wanted to share my latest Starbound project with you, my U.S.C.M. flying fortress!
    Big thank you to Amber for her "BYOS - Build Your Own Ship" Mod!
    If anyone's bored enough, you can just give me a shout on steam to see it in game. My steam name is Karavel,
    I'd be happy to give a tour! Hope you like it! :)

    Other than this being a custom ship via a mod, everything in it is vanilla Starbound, no other mods.
    Everything is wired, there are probably over 1000 wires here. The ship is Automated, Alarmed, Lighted, Protected, Guarded, and even Vented with air ducts lol.

    This is so cool! What mod did you use? There are a lot of custom ship mods out there.

    Thank you all so much for checking it out! I had to get it out of my system to build something huge! No doubt it will constantly change as new content patches are released!
    There are many details where wiring is used aswell, the captains room is locked via a 9 button lock combination, as well as the 10 various elevators, 3 of which are heavily wired. The engine rooms have counters in them which basically gives them a neat active computer look as well as make the electric doors I put inside the engines pulse on and off in wild patterns. The whole ship is alarmed, doors can be locked, turrets activated. Swimming pool has a retractable roof lol. Various rooms have unique lighting conditions like the Navigation and dance room. Secret switch in my captain's quarters with the 9 button lock that deactivates the trap guarding the "museum" like room, as well as a switch that locks the costume room and opens both an alternate escapeway, and the costume room to the captains quarters. So much stuff lol. Did I mention there are three teleporters haha. Pretty happy with it ;)

    Like I said if anyone's bored give me a holler Can share the ship in game, be more than happy to!
    Probably going to start a giant planet based building sometime down the road, we'll see. Thanks again guys!

    I'm working on building something like this.... With BYOS. But it's more of an ark.

    Does it have a lockdown emergency security system?
  14. Kara G

    Kara G Phantasmal Quasar

    Yes, the doors leading to the outside lock from inside, can only be opened from inside, turrets are also armed as a result, and the alarms all over the ship can be turned on from either of two switches, one in the bridge or from the security room!

    Looking at your ship makes me wish I had talent to build things that look decent.

    Seriously though, it's amazing!

    It got fixed, everything's back.

    Oh that makes my security system shameful. It only turns on alarms on part if the ship, bad turns off some lights.

    Wow is all I can say. I hope to be able to build such cool things someday.

    Thank you guys! Anyone can build fun stuff, it is mostly the time you have to put into it! I think once you brainstorm what type of project you want to make, the biggest factor is planning the size and layout of the project.

    For example when I started this ship I laid the bottom layer horizontally and tried to count how big a typical room size I wanted was in block count, once that was laid out I tried to figure out how high I wanted it, as it being a ship I wanted it to be long but not so wide that it looks funky or loses its shape as a ship.

    After the outside frame is laid out it's must easier to fill in and adjust the rest with rooms and such, I actually planned out on paper what major types of rooms a ship has to have like a sickbay etc. But if you do not build the frame large enough to fit your needs ahead of time, you will find it hard to squeeze and move things around after, def not fun to have to remove blocks and place them all over again.

    Thanks guys
