So just picked up Space Engineers to compare it to Starmade. Both have some features I would like the other to pick up, but right now I feel like Space Engineers is going in a more realistic direction for what I enjoy.

So for my first ship I decided to feed my fan ship addiction, and build the Warlock Advanced Destroyer from Babylon 5. The outside is 'almost' complete, but there is still quite a bit of work to do. Sorry for the low quality shots, I forgot I had my settings down. Anyway, tell me what you think.

Right now the main thing the game suffers from is a lack of parts. Mostly functional things like more weapons, but for me it's the miniscule collection of building blocks. Anyone else play this on any servers I could join? If I do another fan ship, what should I build next?


*edit* Warlock is pretty much finished:

Wow, this is awesome.
I'm not quite familiar with Babylon 5, is that thing Terran?

@Jwa My Space Engineers clan is set to be starting a server very soon. Also if you are a member of the official SE steam group and website the is a test server that you can join.

My clan is the UESC if you are interested.

@Cryosleep Thanks! Yes it is Terran. My understanding is that humans started off as really low tech compared to other races but then fought a bunch of wars with with the different aliens and over time got various techs. This was one of the more advanced ships towards the end of the show, though they didn't really use it.

One of those techs was artificial gravity since the early human ships had none or spun to create it. It apparently has some sort of gravity drive which is interesting because in this game people have figured out how to kludge together a functioning drive by manipulating the artificial gravity blocks. So it basically would be slow as a turtle but this thing will kick it to the max speed in seconds.

Nexrontyr1998 awesome! I'm totally new to this game, haven't even built a fighter, so it would be fun to play with others who know what they're talking about.

Gravity drives are awesome, but they need to be well built or you'll get your ship spinning wildly. Oh, and a method of slowing down after you turn the grav drive off. For stabilisation (aside from gyros , which are necessarry but won't let you controll a grav drive ship on their own) I like to use a spinning segment attached with a rotor which has some mass blocks. They let you make the stabiliser smaller. Oh, and their blue glow combined with the spinning can look awesome on a ship if built right.
