    After take a few years off of playing starbound I finally managed to have enough time start again and complete a ship. I couldn't think of anything interesting, so I thought of something weird. The ship is obviously inspired by the likes of the Borg Spheres from Star Trek. Initially I planned on having a ship that resembles the massive "slab" shaped star ship from ECHO, but settled fora smaller giant ball because I knew that I would get carried away with trying to make a massive floating slab interesting. Also that thing is implied to be enormous and I have enough time staying focused on one project without going overboard.

    Introducing The Eight-ball, a bizarre science vessel shaped like an ominous black sphere as black as the night. The Eight-ball has no visible engines with a noticeable drive plume, as its engines use alterations in gravity to maneuver. This gives the ship the added advantage of omni-directional movement and limited stealth when traveling at sub light speeds. The down side is that the heat build up eventually has to be radiated from its exterior surface making it turn bright red and giving off a massive amount of heat. The Eight-ball's only defenses consists of a mech bay and missiles which have to be set up by the crew and launched from the cargo bay. Its glassy surface can easily absorb most energy weapons, but does little in the way of stopping kinetic slugs. The Eight-balls interior can be best described as a little "cramped." With space at a premium the interior is kept mostly in micro gravity and rooms are packed tightly, every bit of space has to have a purpose.

    20200504225607_1.jpg Starting from "top" to "bottom." At the very top of the ship is a domed library & common area where the ships crew can relax or study on their off hours. Below that on the left is the Materials Science/Chemistry wing. Across from Material Science is the med bay. The floor below on the left under Materials Science is the engine room. Next to the engine is an Electrics workshop & battery room. Across from the engine is the Teleportarium and a series of workshops for manufacturing gear and maintaining tools. Next floor is the center of the ship. Here there is a travel junction where spare space suits are stored. The two airlocks here lead to the cargo bay and Mech bay. Below the cargo bay is the ships galley and hydroponics. Across from the galley is crew quarters and showers. Here I wasn't sure what else to do for the wash rooms, aside from having another wash room stacked on top of the other wash room. The next floor down has the Officers quarters on the right with the officers mess and washroom. This is also where the captains private quarters are located. Across from the officers quarters is another auxiliary workshop with a small xeno botany lab. Below the Xeno-lab and work shop is the ships server farm. On the very bottom of the ship is the bridge which has a nice glass dome floor, giving the crew a big open view of any world they decide to explore.

    The Yukikaze, an Ikokaze-class destroyer from Space Battleship Yamato 2199, AKA Star Blazers. First custom ship build (honestly my first really full custom build of anything in any game... took forever)

    Didn't know what any of the inside of the ship looked like aside from the bridge, so I just took some liberties. For that large compartment on the bottom, I had no clue what it could be, so it has a shield generator in it... for some reason...

    One of the last of its outdated model, this human-manufactured cargo shuttle is used by a novice bounty hunter as his humble mobile home.

    Someone posted something about a mod allowing you to place ship weaponry and thrusters and now I’m wondering... since that post was around 3 years ago is your mod finished and if so can you link it please?

    I'm playing with the frackin universe mod and my ship is 600 blocks (cubits?) long and 200 blocks tall. Is there an image file I can use in some folder somewhere? I know folks patch together screen shots but I think that might be tedious.

    you kinda just have to do that it's not that bad (as long you know what you're doing)
    also if you haven't tried already, you can zoom out too.

    I'm pretty sure they are custom objects. If you look back through all the ships people have posted on here there are several that Pohany has built that use custom objects.
