    Holy crap! Thanks Brian. Haha, I’ve spent two weeks working with my concept artist drawing up ship ideas, but this might help if we start to run dry!

    We also might have to steal the USS Brian Rubin and throw it in the game as an Easter Egg for you ;)

    Don’t mess with “Beyond Beyaan” :) This is strangely fun, typing in random names and seeing what ship design it comes up with :D

    Inspired partially by that thing, some time ago I made a thing called “ship not even wrong”. It’s a C program that spits out openscad programs for what I can hope might be mistaken for spaceship models. On github here https://github.com/smcameron/opencscad It’s in the “ship-not-even-wrong” subdirectory.

      Hey SteveC, welcome to the comments, and that is VERY Cool. How do I get that to run myself?

    I love coming across unexpected tools like this. As someone who can’t design a starship to save his life, this little gem is a valuable source for inspiration.
