    Hi GP. I like that image a lot. It reminds me of those Mississippi pusher barges.
    Two observations.

    1: I think the moon/planet distracts from the vessel.
    2: Unless the vessel was 'end-on' you wouldn't see both port and starboard (red/green) lights

    I will probably just re-render the side view without the moon - I was trying to create something more interesting than just star field, but you're right, the moon distracts. Regarding the lights, except for the catwalk to egress the ship sticking out the side on the fore part of the ship, most of the structure is inside the span of the cargo containers. So putting red/green lights is structurally difficult. So I put them (fore/aft) as wide as they could show on the structure itself.

    I just rendered a top down view of the same ship to create it's deck plan. (It's slightly askew from perfect horizontal, but I'll tweak that)

    While the Ysoki (ratlings) aren't indigenous to the Kronusverse, they are recent arrivals to the Delphi system, aboard a Ysoki Sphere Colony Base ship with a singularity drive at center creating a stable .98 Gs to those living aboard. They plan to settle one of the desert planets in the Delphi system...

    Thanks, wizard509!

    This ship is 300 feet in diameter, and is the largest ship that can land and take off again from a planet. This is what the Ysoki use to land on worlds from their mothership, called the Planeteer.

    While I liked that sunset image, I needed something illustrative of a story more than a nice image...

    The Ysoki Invasion of Delphi II. Although authorized by the Ecclesiastic Council of the Delphi Hegemony to immigrate to the unincorporated planet of Delphi II, in the Delphi star system. A small, population of criminal elements, squatters, and other outlaw types residing on small armed encampment on the planet with a crudely, prepared starport. These ysoki pilgrims from across the galaxy claim religious reasons for claiming the second planet of the Delphi system, to which the Ecclesiastic Council acknowledge, that prophecy speaks of a chosen people for that world, that they were awaiting their arrival. The ysoki are the chosen people of this world.
