Ah, yeah. Um- I planned to make this ship realistic in the long run. But I don't know how either. XC

Maybe you can suggest some statistics I can apply?
Oh, and how do I change those stats to my liking in the editor?

That greatly helped! Used the instructions on the video for editing the ship again, will post images soon. :D

But would like to ask, what stats would fit this ship?

Pretty cool hull, dude! : ) If i may give some advice, try to look into how to shade the base image! Some relatively small changes can give it a more much tridimensional look that won't make it feel too "flat". It is a pain in the butt because you'll have to modify the gibs too, but I think it'd be worth it.

Like, when i first made a ship i checked how the shadows and lights on the kestrel were made, and tried to copy them. I'd do the same if i were in you! (well, obviously. :P) 'Cause your hull looks pretty cool!! And I'm sure it'd be even better with shades. : )

If you need help or anything else you can also hang around in #ftlgame, where modders chat, help each other and idle! (they mostly idle though, so you'll probably have to be patient. :V) Anyway good luck man! : )

well i ask you don't put the guns that the flagship has. with that said. look at other ships and go based off that. and i think to make this ship fair you have to do this:
crew: (same)
7 power
2 shields
2 engines
1 weapons
-Leto missile launcher
-Dual lasers
1 medbay
no cloaking
2 drones
-Defense Drone Mark I
no teleporter
1 piloting
1 door control
1 sensors
1 oxygen

Thank you for the input!~

Though, Taxi Service, what is the best size for the
hull of this ship size? Because I am guessing on the
dimensions everytime I try to redraw it. XD

What is its current size? Consider that the bigger the ship gets, the more difficult it will be for its shield to actually protect the ship, for the enemy shots might get through it easier while it recharges.

DryEagle once told me what were the general maximum dimensions of a ship for the shield to work decently, but i don't remember them exactly. ¦ ( Probably under 600x450 would be the best bet.

Star Trek is my official inspiration, but at least this art came out nicely!
