I've been messing with shipmaker after a few(4-5?) years away and wanted to show off some of my recent work. It's a little sad that the forums are slowing down, but hopefully the people left appreciate the ships. As always I'm interested in hearing comments and critique so I can improve.

This is the first ship I made since I've returned from hiatus. I'm reasonably happy with it but I've never found a way of creating functional weapons that fit the SHN theme.

An asymmetric ship in a similar style, in the future I'd love to figure out how to set triggers again so i could animate those hatches in the middle opening up to launch missiles submarine-style. Also not THRILLED with the bottom armor, but I'll have to live with that for now.

Another exercise in asymmetry, I re-purposed the core from the ship above as a template and built out in a different direction. I think this it worked out pretty well, I actually like it a fair bit better than it's parent, but they less visually distinct than I'd like. I'm not sure if I'll leave it or revisit it so it borrows less from my earlier designs.

Just a cute little gunboat. (I've noticed I seem to like making my gunboats look like crabs, lol)

Finally a more organic ship in Vaporwave colors b/c one of my friend was making something in the same theme at the time. I'm pretty happy with some of the internal greebling, in particular.

Anyway thanks for taking a look! If you see room for improvement I'd love to hear it! (also just checked the forums and it looks like I accidentally posted a draft of this as well... oh well, it's gone now)
