If you're smart enough to design FTL, aren't you smart enough to get rid of your waste heat via weapons discharge? :P

There still is no FTL in this 'universe'. So no discharging heat into convenient pocket dimensions or whatever.

Nice stuff! Do you have more info somewhere on this 'universe'? I love hard scifi stuff.

Hey omi-kun, have'nt seen you around in ages!

This universe (Solar Wind) is part of a game project proposal I've had kicking around for ages.
You control a salvage vessel, the Triskellen. The vessel itself has gone through many revisions actually, i'm still trying to nail the look. The object of the kinda sandbox story is to find out what exactly is wrong with the sector, why the system's sun is so active (elder god star child birthing pain) and to potentially lead the lost colony of humans into the new Renaissance of space exploration again.
The sleeper ship that took them to this system is a target for a salvage op, but I've never got around to designing it actually...

Here are other pictures from the Solar Wind universe.

Also of note, there are no shields, in addition to no FTL. I like my ships to have layers of armor.

Well, I do. All my designs tend to have some sort of heat radiators. Glad I am not alone. ;)
