This topic went invisible for a while because I edited the main post one too many times when changing the ship (changed the link to the .ftl file on Mediafire about three or four times) and it had to be approved by a moderator.

I don't like the front, especially since I didn't make use of the airlocks that are drawn on the hull.

I went back and re-did the front of the ship to make use of those airlocks. It's a good thing too, since I apparently messed up my pilot room by making it 2x1 instead of 1x2. :lol: I also noticed that FTLEdit assigned the ship to PLAYER_SHIP_EASY instead of PLAYER_SHIP_HARD and I didn't catch that mistake the first time, so my file wouldn't even have done anything. I made a few other changes too, like weakening the shields, which will make for harsher starts. I probably shouldn't have done that, since there is no way to avoid asteroid fields on this ship. I even removed an Engi. I consider this a no artillery version, so I kept the original Burst L. II instead of downgrading to the Dual Lasers.

I've added your download link and the image to the post, so people can download that layout.
Cheers, for all your hard work.

Nice work on the ship. :) Reminds me of the Corellian Corvette in Star Wars. It fits in really well with the existing ship artwork. However, considering the vastly different artwork of the existing stealth ship, it just doesn't quite feel stealthy though for my tastes. That said, most, if not, all of the other ships can buy cloaks, so maybe I'm just being picky. :P That said, for balancing reasons, you should probably remove or downgrade a starting system (such as shields as in the stealth ship).
