Shoes are surprisingly important; they make a statement about your views on life, your perceived position on it, and the perception you want others to have on it.

Though I'm surprised she didn't take along matching handbags.

Haven't had a lot of free time to work on this lately but so far I think I've pretty well finalized the stats for the Voshtar and have gotten a start on the deck plans and general hull shape of the ship.

I've also come up with general concepts for quite a few more ships ranging from other 2000 dT "flagships" to escorts, troop transports and corvettes. So its looking like if I fully flesh this out I may be designing a dozen or more ships. A lot of them I'm planning to build around TL 12, to represent both some ships that are older, but also used for smaller ships to fill out their fleets while reducing costs and maintenance. None will be quite like the Voshtar, she was one of a kind and also a good starting point and learning experience. I'll post more when I have it.

One thing that has been lacking is that there isn't a lot of info on the various nobles in Deneb sector so I think I'm just going to make up 5 or 6 fictional "houses" each with their own style and design philosophy and build around that. That should give a nice bit of variety in ship types, styles, and capabilities.

Missiles and fighters are probably the strongest approaches at this scale. Watch out so the regular ships don't get outclassed.

They also protect your feet from hazards on the ground.

I once made a non-player character whose distinctive Absolute Black brand boots (so named for their extremely low albedo) were one of her prized possessions.

Gravitic fashion accessories are all the rage this season you know. :lol:

Still trying to get back to this, between the holidays and a power outage due to weather I've had a few distractions. Also Steam sales, they've contributed to the distractions.

Almost forgot to ask, by "regular ships" you mean which specifically?
