No, it's simpler than that. She'll just add engine-like shapes on connectors, in areas where they need to be. She just hasn't added them yet.
Will engines be attached to ships, or visible on the outside?
Or will engines be not visible on the model?
If they're visible, can we slap engines on wherever they'll fit, or will there be preset connectors?
I'm worried that some ships won't have room for engines in logical places, or that the preset engine locations will be clipping through everything.
This is pretty much cleared up with hidden engines, but weapons will have the same issues, except they'll be shooting through wings if badly placed.
Edit: Forgot to mention how good these are looking.
Like seriously, there are some that are gorgeous and are comparable to hand designed ships.
And there are some that you know would exist in reality, but no one would design unless they had to. Looking at you sad-fish. The fact that both gorgeous ships, functional ships, and ugly but effective ships are all present makes me very excited.
A little worried about trying to keep consistent styles for a single manufacturer across different ship classes, but I'm excited to see the way you work on it Lindsey.
