Starfinder Starships, one of my favorite things...


I decided to create another military starship, this one is the Colonial Marine small Jump Spider Assault boat, crew of 6, as a fast system boat ported to a Naval Carrier, without FTL/Drift/Hyperdrive, with maneuver thrusters only. It's fast, armored, a drop boat, and a mecha vehicle, able to move as fast as a medium humanoid in armor can run (able to keep up with the Marine squad on foot), as fire support and defensible campsite, and ship/vehicle. All 8 limbs feature a maneuver pod for flight and VTOL landing. This is inspired by the jumping spider. Enjoy!

Technically not a starship, rather a city...

After watching the new Dune movie on DVD, I decided to create a sci-fi city map, inspired by Arrakeen, for a non-skyscraper urban area. Appearing as various mastaba shaped short structures only a few levels high, but after getting the bulk I realized, this city is more like a super colossal starship, unmoving and inset into the ground. The top level are essentially rooftops peaking through a contiguous roof hull, with floors dropping beneath the ground 2 to 10 levels down. For simplicity, and modularity I created squares of structure, so they could be easily fitted together into a custom city - prefab.

First I created a manufacturing module, half the width of the other modules with pits dropping down. Next I created the habitat/down town block, which is the downtown shopping area with a glassed roof. Then I created the residential block with a fortress for city leadership, and a temple, with other structures surrounding on a varying level hull. I then created the starport, with airfield sitting lower than the ground level on other blocks. Finally I created a large hydroponic dome as the main source of food. I plan to do top downs to show the transit tracks and corridors and some of the structural interiors. Also posting closeup renderings of the residential, fortress and manufacturing blocks. Enjoy!
