Solar sailer

Solar sailer

Codylabs
This ship was used in earth year 2400, before humanity invented warp drive and antimatter power. Because of the lack of antimatter power, solar sails are necessary to provide power for the ion thruster. The weird pendulum thing at the front is the crew cabins, and spins to provide artifical gravity. For you more adventurous downloaders who want to work the sails, they're overlapping plates, so they open and close like a fan. To close them, rotate 1 sail at a time by 15 degrees off the X shape on the base hub. After they're closed, bring the whole sail forward by 60 degrees. Inspiration thanks to Disney's 'Treasure Planet', and James Cameron's 'Avatar'. Enjoy!
