Common Beginner Mistakes

Aero­dynamic Shapes
This is a really quick, semi-e­ffi­cient way of making your ship move faster. To build this, all we need to do is add slopes to the sides of your ship, whilst decreasing the interior of your ship by 2 blocks until you are down to 1. Basically, just make your ship look like an arrow.
Ignoring the Centre of Mass (CM)
Remember to review the center of mass while building. This can be found by pressing [P]and locating the ball of Arrows, this ball is the CM
Not Using Metal or Alloy
Cover the important parts of your ship in it, like the AI or ammo barrels.
Not Using Beams
Each beam has the same cost as 4 blocks of the type of beam (e.g. an alloy beam has the same cost as 4 light-­weight alloy blocks) however, each beam has the health of 6 blocks, and only takes up the space of 4 blocks. Also, constr­uct­ables spawn much quicker and the game runs smoother with less blocks
Large Missiles
For most purposes the largest missle you will need is a 4 block. It may not seem like a lot, but it truley is. If you're thinking, "­Well, this 4 block missle, you say, is good. So what should I put on it?" I would recommened a thruster, 2 fuel tanks, 2 fins, a one-turn, a warhead of any kind, and an infrar­ed-­seeker.
Using One Vehicle
Having one ship specia­lizing in one thing (e.g. a missle carrier or a battel­ship) generally does better than an all-ro­under because if you had to make one ship have both missiles and cannons, would you have more space for more missiles).
