JCandeias' ships

So I recently had a few insomniac nights (bloody heat!) and that meant I finally got into ships, learning to fly them (well... a bit) and build them with ePayload's editor. I made a few designs, without giving much thought to functionality (I was way too tired to plan anything, so I just added elements and if they felt right they stayed), and I thought I might just as well share them. Or share it: for now it's just one, 'cause the others have a few small issues I want to correct first.

Any comments are welcome. I'll be updating this post with the other ships (not all, just the ones I like best) as time allows. You know how to install these, right? Just place the .sss file in addons>models>spacecraft. You may need to install ePayload's additions to Space Engine's default modules as well. They can be found in this thread: viewtopic.php?t=174

For now, I give you the Grapefruit.

I got to the conclusion that the issues of one those ships that had issues I wanted to correct first aren't correctable. Ot at least I don't know enough about this modelling thing to correct them.

I tried to make the smallest functional ship possible using Space Engine modules, a small orbital shuttle with a docking port, shunting engines only (still able to pack well over 100 G of acceleration, which is crazy) and a live emergency module. And it kinda works, although I don't seem to be able to dock it with larger ships (is there a male-female thing in docking ports?) and despite the fact that autopilot seems to hate its guts. Manually it's flyable, though, so here goes.

Ship #2, the Barrell

Did you use the ship editor to make your ship?

Yes. All of them.

How do you install ships that aren't in .pak files?

Sorry, I missed this one.

It's explained in the original post:

This is so because those ships only use the default modules used in Space Engine, so there's no need to pack additional stuff in a .pak file.

However I forgot that I have installed ePayload's additions to those modules, which means that you may not have some of them in your computer. If that's the case, you'd have to install them. You can find them in this thread (I won't link to specific posts because it's best if you get the latest version): viewtopic.php?t=174

I'll amend the original post accordingly. Thanks.
