For the 'artistically challenged'...
There seems to be a few different groups of people here, as far as the ship design aspect goes:
1. Why waste my time designing my ships when I could be kicking the Drengin in the teeth??
2. I love the ship builder! Unfortunately, my artistic talent limits me to drawing stick figures and making ships with the engines on backwards.
3. I love the ship builder! In fact I'm so good, my ships produce their own influence points because of how cool they look.
I would have to put myself in category two...
So I thought maybe it would be a good idea to have a thread where people could post pictures, or descriptions of ships they would like to have... and anyone that's mastered the ship builder, and wants to help the artistically challenged and terminally impatient, can fulfill requests and share their designs by uploading to the library Link, or trade directly with other people.
So basically just a ship request/trading thing.
I imagine this will be even more fun once people start modding their own ship parts, but I've seen some really cool designs people have done with the existing parts that I would love to have.
Or, if this is a bad idea, this thread can begin its slow, painful journey to the bottom of the thread list.
I'll probably try and create these when I have some free time this weekend, but...
The Mon Calamari cruiser from Star Wars:
This might not be possible, considering most of the parts in the game seem more angular and pointy... but I think there are some rounded pieces, so this might work.
Second, another difficult one... I saw someone that made a constructor that basically looked like a big UFO, which makes me wonder if it would be possible to have some kind of large or huge-hulled ship that looks like the one from Close Encounters of the Third Kind:
I just like the idea of flying around in the old-fashioned ufo-type ships. Might have to use Kryo's ship mod for this one.
Also, it would probably be a good idea if you mention what race the ship is for, and whether or not you have the collector's edition parts.
