Just posted Aurum here.


 :o  NICE, Warrax!!  Aurum looks great and the stats on it are impressive.  How do you get the Rads so high for maneuvering?  Are you going to post the xml for it soon? 
I got the Crab working, finally, from Minimum's original thread.   I liked the changes you made, so I did similar.

I prefer to share my own work so...

 Note: all this ships and turrets are designed in Starmade and I have no intention to rebuild them all in Avorion. I want to build new ships here.
Spoiler: show
Hansa-Class Freighter


Never finished Railgunsniper ship, get lost through Nullpoint exeption.


Valkyria_Class Dreadnought


Ion Eradicator Turret
The barrel has ca. 13000 blocks


Quad Barrel Railgun turret also never finished


A mining turret, also lost through Nullpointer exeption


The Metalforce


Not finished Carrier


Not finished mobile Mining base


Godspear Cannon
Its a Turret in size of a small Titan


Grungnir-Class Railsniper/Shipyard Hybride(WiP)
It carry two Godspear Cannons plus larger spinemounted Railgun.
I lost a month of progress on this one after a hackerattack on the build server where I was building.


I look forward and hope to reach simliar quality standard for my ships in Avorion.

Hi Jester
I am glad you like it.  I prolly trade off extra armour for more turn-ability. 
I suppose it’s much in the way i build the ships, with using my planned designs (in Excel), as i am building, i maintain a level of maneuverability.  When it comes down to the cladding (armour phase of the build), i will spike up my thrusters and gyros before the armour is all layed and applied.

And thanks for including those artistic designs.

I will mail you the .xml for Aurum.  I have not started posting XMLs yet because of my designs (even those posted) might be updated based on feedback.  If you decide to make any changes, please post it here, or in a thread for your ship designs.

Cheers :)

To Cpt. Madman:

Your designs look great.  Thank you for sharing, and look forward to seeing more from your fleet.

The ship design part of Avorion is ... well ... ships take time build, but the challenges in optimizing and overcoming those challenges is fun, and often rewarding.

Thanx for the Aurum .XML. 

Also, check your mail.  I sent back my Crab changes, in the .XML - with enhancements to L/R rads.   Save you the effort.
And btw,  thanks   :)

Trimaran Freighter Designs

I have never really tried my hand at trading in Avorion.  The in-game economy is steeped in logic and has considerable depth.   :o

So, I will begin to look for a suitable solution to my hauling needs.
I wonder if anyone has seen another one that they would like designed?  If so, please post it and I may try it out.
Your suggestions and/or links to fine works done by other Avorion Designers are welcome.

This next one is the Albatross from AstroOwl.   Click here for his thread.

Impressive stats!! 
I will have to try for an even better one.   ;D

Yeah, I tried to put together a Freighter ... It did not turn out so well.
I did learn something, thought you might want to add it into your "Lessons Learned" post, lol.

#1  25 individual cubes of Cargo, placed 5 x 5 x 5 (1x1 ea) DO NOT equal one cube of Cargo Hold 5 x 5 x 5. 
#2  Ship Editor:  In addition to rotating blocks (holding the 'R' key), I learned that if you hit "X" while editing blocks ships, you can flip (mirror) the block instead.

Ok, maybe this is not new for people, but it was for me.
And yes, I am crappy at making ships. lol    :-[

OMG.  A Freighter-Fighter, good idea !!
And the Cargo Hold, 80k??  I am not sure if I have seen larger.

I won't offer to help you finish the body, but let me suggest a little more "jump" to it's natural jump range.
I can't wait for the finished version.  I have been trading in my games as part of my routine, but I have mostly driven hulks that I have slapped together.

Great job, Warrax !!  :P

Thank you, Jester
So, I put together a ship with an even larger cargo, which I will post shortly.
For this one coming up (Asea) and your comments about Antithesis needing more jump - I agree.

But I think you already know - and can appreciate - there are diminishing returns on HyperSpace Core and the jump range.  The main goal was Cargo Hold capacity and maneuverability.  There is "some" extra Space Jump range, but as soon as I hit a certain amount, i decided to stop adding.
In-game, i would use Module Upgrades to help me in that respect.

And that said, I also dropped the idea of cladding and boosting on Armour - again for the sake of nimble-ness.
As a side bonus, there are substantial savings on Materials costs (namely Trinium).

I appreciate your ideas and welcome yours and other comments.

Cheers

Its been a long week, so, just two pics from the Asea for now.  I will follow up with a full post later, and add it to the Freighter section that is featured earlier in this thread. 
[partial posting]

Asea - 13 Module Slots
+166,000 Cargo Hold, and responsive maneuverability.
