I would thought it sparkles as it interacts with gas clouds, eventually attritioning away to nothing.

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Venture Class Militarized: Short Range Patrol Orbital Combat Ship 1. With sixty one tons plus to spare, the Venture class could become Patrol Ship. 2. With rather short legs, and more of a marathon man than a sprinter, wouldn't be optimized for deep space work, unless it's covert surveillance. 3. Th...

Ship's Hull

1. You could mandate that all hulls must have 0.5 factor armour for structural integrity.

2. This won't have any effect for damage results.

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Venture Class 1. The importance of establishing the Venture class as iconic as the Scout type S is to have a form that can be the basis for variants or new versions that have a certain commonality making it easier to source parts and maintain mechanics familiarity with the type. 2. While it does app...

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Venture Class 1. If I raise the roof a bit, to just over six metres, I could create a cargo bay of six metres by twelve metres by nine metres equals forty eight tons or twelve twenty foot containers, or six forty foot containers. 2. That leaves thirteen and a half tons to cover the additional headro...

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

You'd need to set up the turret as a CIWs, though going by the current Mongoose smallcraft design sequence, you could do that with ten small arms rather than assigning ship weaponry slots.

Re: Ship Design Philosophy

1. You'll notice I do make a lot of assumptions with ship design, and then ex post facto try to find some text or extrapolation to justify. 2. Freshers - not every stateroom has them, but by default they would be included, considering the fact I just paid ten thousand schmuckers for two weeks in an ...
