We are interested in including fan designs into Star Control: Origins for use in the game as various travelers.
The universe is vast and while players will be going on missions at the request of Star Control command, they will also be frequently running into other travelers across hyperspace or in solar systems.
If you would like to participate, add a comment in here with a picture of your ship, a description of how you'd imagine it used, and a link to download a ZIP file to it which should include a readme.txt file in it to tell us how you'd like to be listed in the credits.
To find your ship design, go to your my games\star control\designs folder and you'll see your ship design.
<proposed back story>
A large and slow, but deadly starship.
Hi, here is my latest design, a giant robot, Harmony.
3 Modes: Stand, Attack, Speed Assault
Descriptions: Project Harmony, wish to bring the true peace though out the universe.
Advice: If possible, please make some motion animates for them. For the best, please consider enhance the craft system even further.
These look great!
Keep up the amazing work!
Hi, this is Cruiser Mode for Harmony.
Fix a bit on this one, please update.

As a huge fan of Gundam Wing and Wing 0, I support this completely!
Me too. Also a huge fan of Wing and Wing 0.
I hope to see them action in SCO story line.
Just don't know if this is possible....
Background: Ectato, the ant-like collectively-sapient insectoids have neither emotions, nor mercy to spare - just plain blasters to wipe out anything or anyone standing on their path to expansion. Their tiny quick and maneuvarable basic ship costs 17 points currently and is equipped with a Beam Carver and Heal ability.
Use: Is a good counter to Scryve, Trandals and the Measured core ships. Best used in hit-and-run close combat with quick self-healing breaks. Ectato comes from the name of one of the multiple ant sub-families, "Ectatomminae" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ectatomminae).
Good looking ship and nice backstory!
THE BASE (and Probe):The Base, is an mobile research station, mostly for the creation of Weapons and Bio-weapons, and the occasional Xenobiology study.Being a weapon research station as well, it's very well armed with unique Lasers and protected by strong Shields.It's drawback is that the size and shape does not allow the ship to fly quickly or even turn with precision, so it relies on Probes to help with attacks and reconnaissance.It's Unknown what species pilot the Ship. Bio-Scans shows NO Lifeforms.

Ashog, this is awesome! I love the retro feel the ship has. Reminds me of something that crashed landed in Roswell.
I really dig the design shade. I can definitely see a fleet of sentient AI swarming across the cosmos.
Hi all!I'm posting updated versions of my ships from reply #12. The geometries of some of the parts changed with newer builds, which messed-up some of my designs. So these are fixed and updated to the latest chapter 1 founders build (v0.89.44364 BETA 1B). Link.
I'd also like to submit updated versions of my entries to the ship design contest from several months ago (the Sniper one won me a Stardock game!). These two are fast and agile medium ships. The Sniper is focused on sharpshooting enemy vessels at long-range, but it's also equipped with a short-range burst weapon for backup. And the Stinger is specialized in delivering large amounts of damage at close-range, utilizing both of its weapons simultaneously, while performing flybys or ramming maneuvers.
Link to Sniper and Link to Stinger
My Favourites on the list above so far:
Irulian FreighterSpace Virus Load Dispenser (lol you have to modify this one slightly)The Coreelc delta formationd3 looks slightly too busy at the rearspaidurmthe infectedfezzrah zapportLatchkum TravelerSniperThe ECTATO PACIFIER is definitely my most Favourite.What i notice about many other ships is that people tend to build them overcomplicated, they look too busy and over sophisticated. Takes away the aesthetic factor and in turn look less functional. Not saying it isn't, it just looks that way.
Having said this, how it moves and functions as well as the weapons and how they function plays a big role.Not much fan of the giant robot transformer though, nothing against it it's really cool, but it feels to me that it belongs in another game, not star control.I would love to see the J-type 327 Nubian royal starship, it has all the right lines and curves. and Yes i'm a big fan of the original Urquan dreadnaught ship
Here are some more ships that would look awesome in SCO: (PLS BUILD THEM !)
THE GOLD AND RED ONE FROM THIS:
some spelling mistakes updated above...doh..
Design updated 07.08.2018
Background: Khmeli, a scientifically apt dendroid starfaring race, are known for their frantic search for any data on planetary systems with brown dwarfs. Khmeli seem obsessed with an idea of utilizing brown dwarfs as an energy source for their future colonies.
Ship: Mesoform is an aggressive scout-class military ship. Despite its tiny size and small crew compartment, it can hold its own in any situation. It is equipped with the leetest tech the Khmeli could squeeze into this chlorobenzene-molecule-shaped glistening marvel of design. High energy storing capacity of this mesoformic construct allowed to equip it with the devastating pulsar-halo primary weapon and defensive repulsors, as well as the adequately capable engine and thrusters.
Use: Solitary Mesoforms or their small squadrons are usually encountered in Hyperspace scouting for new planetary systems or accompanying civillian Hyperlabs in their tasks of scanning gas giants and brown dwarfs.
The one thing I myself have been amazed with when first testing this ship in Fleet Battles, is how wonderfully it glistens all the time in the sunlight or starlight. It is a very pleasant surprise effect coming from the all six reflective spheroids that were used in the design.
My faves here are the Space Eye prime, Orville and The Probe
Great submissions so far. Keep up the awesome work!
Hi, 3 for this time.
Infected Scryve Battlecruiser
The Pinthi race seems in our side. So, I made it does some attack to Scryve. This is inspired by the new bio parts.
A black hole experimental vessel MK2. Not faster than MK1, but equip with powerful weapon combination.
The First Human-Pinthi tech vessel. Medium in size with low speed, but the weapon combinations is very effective against large slow ships.
The "Terran Star"
Earth's early primitive sub-light exploratory vessel, capable of operating only in and around Earth's solar system, and lost in an anomaly. The player encounters it in a far away solar system near a wormhole, and it's captain gives the player some clues regarding the story or the galaxy.
