As the Founder here, i technically have the ultimate say. However, i feel that the community will be more happy and benefit more if we all agree on a solution.
My idea is this, a ship must look like a ship. One must also factor in the physics part of ships. For instance, you dont see a real life ship that bristles with tons of tiny guns pr large guns for that matter. Leave space for aesthetics. Also, all ships must have a Bridge. Adding to that, flying ships must look like their surface ship counter part. For example, a battleship that flies should look very similar to a surface battleship with modest changes like making the ship look partially aerodynamic and stuff like that. Also, adding to that, show the engines of a flying ship. If it flies, how does it do that? Maybe large fans on the side of the ship with 2 large rocket engines pushing it forward.
