Looking for advice on SHIPS
Posted: Sun Oct 20, 2019 8:40 pm
I'm hoping to make some kind of larger ship for Space Austria, what advice do people who have built large ships in the past have?
Especially helpful would be tips about
-How To keep Stability
-Amount of material needed

Due to the influence of the Space community, only vehicles that are at least 100 studs long qualify as SHIPs. However, from the Brikwars point of view, a vehicle that's 30 inches long is pretty impractical for most battles. I'd advise starting with a vehicle that's around 50 studs or 15 inches. That's enough to give it some character and make it a hero ship while still being fairly reasonable to build.
For building a full SHIP, you want to accumulate a lot of long technic beams to build a stiff keel and skeleton, and then build walls around it. Building the interior before getting too far on the hull is a good idea as well.
