Most of us are in for a bit of a wait, but we have a pretty good idea as to what's waiting for us when we get access to the game, regardless of what might change between now and then. So a lot of us have already started drawing up ideas of what we'll build in our heads.

Let's use this thread to release some of these ideas before they build up and give us migraines, maybe inadvertently planting even more ideas into each-others' heads. Sources of inspiration are a welcome addition.

Well my big plans in tale building and automating a mining/trade network.

I will live on one of many asteroid mining ships and basically oversee my army of automated vessels.

This is if we can automate ships to that degree. If we can't then I will just live on a mostly automated asteroid mining ship and sell resources to the highest bidder and fight off pirates that try and steal from me.

I'm planning on at first making a small shuttle and a mech to get used to the building mechanics in the game, then going for a drone/mech carrier that will carry ships/mechs similar to the flight units in Nier: Automata.

As I have a terrible goldfish like mind, I'll probably have to settle for something like recreating the Millennium Falcon as one project; the dimensions & size are memorable enough for a fairly straightforward project.

I'm also a big fan of the 'ugly potato' style of ship, so that'll be another theme I would like to explore. I like workhorses, craft which do the unsung jobs, not a fan of those craft which er... overcompensate, as it were. Nor of the Generic Industrial/Military Phallus™. They're all incredibly dull & samey.

I've already started putting a list together. As for whether or not I'll be able to realize it, that remains to be seen.

• Some compact, aggressively utilitarian industrial ships
• Retrofuturistic warship(s) inspired by Mike Doscher's Spacecraft of the First World War or Rocketship Empires
• Unit lineup for planetary assaults, including a carrier, armed orbit-to-surface transports, infantry hardsuit (maybe a high-altitude drop version to go with it), hover tank, air-droppable IFV, surface strike craft, air superiority fighter

@Sofa

Pics yet or just lists?

Having checked out Doscher's work I'm not impressed tbh, but if it provides inspiration, it's all good.
