Tip 1: SCUs are your friend, complete the mission Turret Defence ASAP so you can use your inventory
Tip 2: once you unlock your first Payload Terminal, buy 5 more, wait until your 1 level behind max level in a lisence and scrap one of your 5 payload terminals and turn it into a payload terminal for that corparation
Tip 3: Don't feel like mods or downloading blueprints off of the workshop are cheating, it's completely normal
Tip 4: don't build a base until you beat Craftier Buisness 3
I will update this if i have any more tips

Hello Darvin(not darwin, or a dwarf), it’s me! Totally Annoyingus Spammus! On a side note, yes, I do understand that I have a fleet to make, but I'm burnt out + waiting for a block update + procrastination, so I will settle for spamming your inflow of ideas. Let’s start with the problems we have to solve. From my experience with spaceships, here are the problems with making one effective while making it look good:
  2. I have never in my life, ever touched a CWIS
  4. Anti-grav is too limited in range
  5. Bro, why is my spacecraft doing barrel rolls without me pressing anything??
All of these blocks are built around helping with the 5 problems stated above, and making a realm of tactics within starship design. Many will be quality of life blocks, but some with being game-changing, or even game-breaking. Note that you don’t have to make them all, but at least try to add the blocks with a (!) next to them because, well, this was the work of about 4 months of planning. Also, I have too much experience with the late game, so REBALANCE!!!
  • Standard Blocks: My overall goal with these is to create a diversity of purpose-built blocks to more efficiently
  • (!) Reinforced Blocks: More health and weight than normal blocks. Also, don’t fall off and if possible, reflect armor-piercing munitions.
    • 1x1x1: 900 hp, 1.5 weight
    • 1x1x2: 1800 hp, 3 weight
    • 1x1x3: 2700 hp, 4.5 weight
    • 1x1x4: 3600 hp, 6 weight
    • 2x1x2: 3600 hp, 2 weight
    • 2x1x3: 5400 hp, 3 weight
    • 2x1x4: 7200 hp, 4 weight
    • 2x1x6: 10800 hp, 6 weight
    • 2x2x2: 7200 hp, 4 weight
  • Heavy Armor Plating: Very flat reinforced armor plating that doesn’t pop off. Also if possible, reflects armor-piercing munitions. Lore: Heavy duty armor plating for the toughest of engagements.
    • 1x1: 1750 hp, 0.75 mass units
    • 1x2: 3500 hp, 1.5 mass units
    • 1x3: 5250 hp, 2.25 mass units
    • 1x4: 7000 hp, 3 mass units
    • 2x2: 7000 hp, 3 mass units
    • 2x4: 14000 hp, 6 mass units
    • 2x6: 21000 hp, 9 mass units
    • 4x4: 28000 hp, 12 mass units
    • 4x8: 57600 hp, 26 mass units
  • (!) Energized Armor Plating: Armor plating that has a thin shield right above it, similar to the RR phalanx shields, but also deletes explosions like the TAC EMPC bubble. Lore: Warning! Apply with caution! Can and Will blow up at random intervals. Use at your own risk!
    • 1x1: 1250 hp, 0.8 mass units, 0.01 passive drain, 0.2 active drain
    • 1x2: 2500 hp, 1.6 mass units, 0.02 passive drain, 0.4 active drain
    • 1x3: 3750 hp, 2.4 mass units, 0.03 passive drain, 0.6 active drain
    • 1x4: 5000 hp, 3.2 mass units, 0.04 passive drain, 08 active drain
    • 2x2: 5000 hp, 3.2 mass units, 0.04 passive drain, 0.8 active drain
    • 2x4: 10000 hp, 6.4 mass units, 0.08 passive drain, 1.6 active drain
    • 2x6: 15000 hp, 9.6 mass units, 0.12 passive drain, 2.4 active drain
    • 4x4: 20000 hp, 12.8 mass units, 0.16 passive drain, 3.2 active drain
    • 4x6: 30000 hp, 19.2 mass units, 0.24 passive drain, 4.8 active drain
    • 4x8: 40000 hp, 25.6 mass units, 0.48 passive drain, 9.6 active drain
  • Chasis Blocks: less health for significantly less weight. Use as a filler block or for making a fast testing vehicle. Lore: With a joint venture with venture(haha), we have created lightly armored filler blocks for light vehicles. Or for slapping together a testbed.
    • 1x1x5: 2125 hp, 5 weight
    • 2x1x2: 1700 hp, 4 weight
    • 2x1x4: 3400 hp, 8 weight

    • 5x1x8: 17000 hp, 40 weight
    • 10x1x12: 51000 hp, 120 weight
  • (!) Bulkhead Blocks: Almost unbreakable blocks, but are so heavy to move unless using anti-grav, don’t even think about using them. Similar function to reinforced blocks. Large sizes, only for reinforcing important areas. Hard to build with, but very worth it. Lore: Stubborn and unwieldy, only usable for the largest of bases and antigrav ships.
    • 2x1x4: 80000 hp, 80 weight
    • 2x1x2: 40000 hp, 40 weight

    • 1x1x6: 60000 hp, 60 weight
    • 2x1x6: 120000 hp, 120 weight
  • Insert more HE armor blocks: I ran out of ideas, just do it.

You've got some interesting ideas there, but the grant is based on popularity, so you need to convince not only me, but other people to support you as well. You might wanna chose the 1 thing that you want badly, then submit it when the next community research grant is open

That being said, I will be experimenting on a design for inertial dampener, which will ensure spaceships to stay in their place when the user doesn't press any movement keys
