I missed this piece of news on Friday, but I'm glad I found it this morning. Star Citizen the trading and space combat simulator which has made well over $40,000,000 since its inception, is running a competition to allow teams of fans to design ships. In this fourth episode of "The Next Great Startship" the modding competition is on sprint mode. p>
Get ready for the fourth epsiode of The Next Great Starship, the modding competition that gives fans a chance to create a space ship to be used in Chris Roberts’ upcoming epic space sim game, Star Citizen™. Sponsors for the competition include Alienware, AMD, Autodesk, Crytek, Cologne Game Lab, Maingear, Wacom and YouTube. The Next Great Starship airs Fridays at 6 pm Eastern/3 pm Pacific. Fans are encouraged to join the Roberts Space Industries
The video itself is lengthy at around 30 minutes, but it's definitely a fun watch. It has plenty of the modding teams super excited about the next designs and has a chat with David Hobbins the concept artist at Cloud Imperium Games. Even if you aren't interested in Star Citizen, the footage of how David Hobbins works is well worth watching.
