I’ve got all of the new ship bases assembled now, I just need to make it so that when you have no ship started, your only choices are the bases. It’s also pretty likely that I’ll want to make sure that if a piece is a base, you can’t attach it. At least for now.
Ultimately, there are probably some bases that will only make sense as the beginning of a ship, and others still that will make sense as the beginning of a ship and as an attachable piece to an existing hull. But that requires two different transformations, and the infrastructure isn’t there to support that yet. So for now, I think it’s either one or the other.
I’ve got to be done for today now, but I’m thinking by the end of the day tomorrow, there will be a new release with new ship bases. Your fleet will soon be able to contain all sorts of sizes of ships!
