General Tippage: Don't be afraid to design an ugly/beautiful-in-function-only model. Not every ship can be a looker, especially if it has a utilitarian purpose. Try to look at all the oxps and think to yourself 'what is the Ooniverse short of?" I did that and thought: "Why can't I join a gang?" Wher...

(Make sure you have finished everything you want to do as it's difficult to edit afterwards. Also, if you are hotwaxing, don't be too fiddly with your colour scheme as your primary (left...

I was hoping to do feudalism some day. I was going to do station forts, maybe two or three per system, with randomised names and feudal families, with a few of them multi system families.
