Yay! I am so glad to see art coming in for my little contest. I’m sure many people are eager to get a hold of a $50 steam gift card! I know I would be. Here’s what we got for our first few days:
“I made a ship that’s basically a railgun with a bridge and an engine strapped to it”
The SS Kingyo. Kingyo means Goldfish in Japanese. It is a random encounter ship that comes from a distant sector of the universe.It needs such a big reactor because Kingyos travel far and wide to sell sushi across the entire universe.
Its inhabitants are gold-fish people (Kingyos)
It’s a medium sized low-tech freighter vessel, build for long distance travel. The ship consist of two different parts, the actual vessel and a huge cargo container
Heresy Heavy Industries is a massive corporation that’s producing spaceships, military equipment of different types and so on. They’re able of producing that all without depending on another corporations as they have their own mines, shipyards and factories.The 824H is one of most minimalistic designs, created with a thought that completely any shipyard should be able to build these ships. Since their armor isn’t really strong, it’s usually reinforced with additional plates, attached in any way shipyards see possible, usually rivets.
Approximate length: 25 meters. Armor: Front: 40 cm rolled steel. Side, top, bottom, aft: 10 cm rolled steel.
Drive section: 3x nuclear thermal rocket engines Fuel reserve: 100m^3 or more with additional tanks.
Role: battlegroup and trade convoy escort, interception, starbase defense.
I think it would be some sort of starter ship or something. It’s called the “Chlorophyl”. Built by the eco-friendly company “Gehko”
I can’t stress enough how tickled I am by these designs! I really like the creativity here. Remember, I’m basing it 100% on idea/concept. You don’t have to be a world class artist! For a link to the contest rules, you can check’m out here: https://coldricegames.com/design-your-own-starship-contest/
