    If you haven't designed a ship then maybe making it look like an oversized old Bentley or something would be cool.

    And I dig that regeneration sequence.

    There actually was a very nice sprite work for a ship done, I never got around to updating the main page to include that. Probably should get around to that.

    So wait, is this still alive?
    (I hope so! A mod of them would be SO DAMN COOL!)

    Well, not really. I'm neither an artist nor familiar enough with the Starbound architecture to release a competent enough mod for the general public.

    Step 1 of god knows how many I will need....
    Complete I suppose.

    You must pardon this poor chap's indecency, but he doesn't have a scrap of clothing to wear at the moment.

    if this happens, I support Novelty one-eyed Oscura glasses as vanity items for other races.

    Thank ye very much kind sir.

    It is, of course, merely just the bare framework of the race...No hair, clothes, ship, weapons, etc....

    Slick, of course.
    For more derogatory ones, try Spill, Smudge, Streak.

    Since this race has a heavy Roaring 20's - Dirty 30's vibe to it.....

    I sincerely hope that you don't mind me tossing in some great war era uniforms to the list of tiered armors considering that there are so few sprites to actually base anything off of. Luckily, I happen to be a huge dieselpunk enthusiast, and I have a strong understanding of the basic philosophies (War, Greed, Pollution, Crime) that go into the genre of dieselpunk.

    No, actually, I don't mind at all. I don't know if you had checked out the original armor arts but about half of them were designed with the great war theme in mind. Looks fantastic, though.

    Albeit if we look more thematicaly, that would be either some kind of dark, heavy, oppresive electronic

    , or, if we stick to 20's aesthetic, electro-swing

    P.S. Or, as a variant, something along these lines:

    Damn, hit a limit on embedded stuff:

    the Oscura ship should have Smokestacks coming out of the roof, like a steamboat er somethin.

    I always thought they were more of a jazzy race considering their theme and era after all:

    Don't enjoy the ship looking like a flying skyscraper?

    Actually, while I am on the subject of ships....It comes to my attention that it is going to be rather difficult to actually make a custom ship considering I am going to need to rebuild the entire ruddy thing from the ground up.
  19. Quillon

    Quillon Subatomic Cosmonaut

    how DOES one make a custom ship?

    I might be able to make some Mockups for Oscura settlements, maybe even the real deal if I can figure out how to mod decorative objects.
