Every ship need somebody to build it. Aside from II.generation giant ships that can very slowly replicate themselves , III.generation ships are too gracile on their structure to be able to crystalize. This Apries Crusier has several "tentacles" made of sub units that manufacture each part of ship. Though it has some cannons , its more vulnerable that other ships and since then it usually works in protection from other ships. Tentacle design is very adaptable in either shape, lenght and structure to be capable of producing any kind of smaller ship , chaser, dart or ever cruiser.
About this creation
Pilot cabine – his job is to move cruiser on safe place where others crew members can produce ship freely. It is simple task when cruiser is not working, but very difficult when he needs to keep tentacles and partially produced ship in right conformation when functioning.
Tentacle sub - units are divided in similiar types , every one with different function. Tentacles are either spreading themselves (when building many small ships) or clumping together to cooperate while building a cruiser.
Ending sub – units are mounted with cannon to provide some defence. While tentacles moving , cannons can change their target field very much - I plan to add this feature on future ships
Beams of each sub – unit have ability to connect to each other by technic pegs. this can enable to make more resistant structure.
Some units have cockpits , one on each tentacle. It hold engineer that mans whole tentacle to work.
Computer sub – unit . Has CPU core and massive design. While in space , astronauts can work on monitors on their top.
Connecting sub – unit. Rotating element on their bottom is blaster – it works with bulb of molten material that is formed by force fields of engineer unit to form ship particles. It combines Atritian magic that control minds and inorganic matter and Valarcar magic that keeps ore molten.
Engineer sub - unit. He has plenty of monitors , because his work is very complicated.
Engineer cell in central segment. There are four cells on ships , slope brick are to hold blue information crystal containing instructions for building ship as well for its functioning.
Quoting JWG 258
Your storyline and your ship designs are totally different from anything i have seen before. Well done. I'd like to see some of these in plastic.
Thank You very much :D It is very good to hear some feedback. I am trying really hard to make my style more sophisticated. Even more now when I saw so much in this page. I have one real LEGO ship in progress , I would make some photos when it is complete. I am working on ship with fleur-de-lis design these days , so I ll be glad to hear some constructive critics on it from You :D
