Here's some ships I made. I built these mostly with aesthetics in mind, but most of them function alright.
My favorite of the lot. Sometimes the crew has trouble getting coal from the back section to the front section. When deck modules get added, I'll replace the cheap wooden walkways in the middle with twin decks.
Got the name from the default list. I'll be replacing the cheap wooden deck bits with deck modules when they get added.
Also I think it would look awesome with sails.
Also got the name from the default list. This one is inspired more by real ships, and it even has a mock mast with a telescope at the top. It kinda reminds me of the pirate ship in the Edge Chronicles, because of the way the aftcastle sticks out.
It's rather inefficient though, because it's ammo runs out very quickly. When i pit one against itself, one of them always runs out of ammo before one can get blown out of the sky.
I was originally planning a ship that would land on other ships, (an "anvil" landing on other ships, hehehe) but the service ceiling is too low for that. It's more like a flying castle.
The flamethrowers are probably it's most effective weapon.
It only has two suspendium cannons as weapons. No sickbay either, but it has beaten my SS Beezlebub. I've only tested it once.
And yes, my ships are crewed entirely by lizards. Hell yes.
Sorry if it's already posted somewhere, but how do get pictures to show up in your post?
I upload the pictures to Imgur, then I use this code:
Without the "!" it shows up as a normal link.

I really like the ship-ness of SS Ozymandias. Uhm, and I notice your ships are crewed by... ninja turtles?
@Zarkonnen: Lizaaaardssss D:< Wearing yellow shirts!
But yeah, they do look like ninja turtles, don't they.
Too bad the SS Ozymandias is the worst one of the lot. Maybe if I made a bigger version, I could fit more ammo though.
Your anvil looks a bit like a giant hamburger. =)
@espritcrafter: I cannot unsee that now.
Because what's the point of destroying your enemies if you can't do it in style.
By themselves they run out of ammo pretty quickly, but in a group all of those cannons can be pretty effective.
I made the lizard crewmen brown so they don't look like ninja turtles.
I also made some koopa troopa crewmen so I can pretend I'm Bowser.
I like the shape! Do you want to arrange a multiplayer match at some point?
@Zarkonnen: I'd love to play a match. Just need to find a time when we're both online.
Another boat-shaped airship. This time I made sure it fit lots of ammo, and it can take down an HMS Satan. No water tanks, so I tried to put in lots of fire extinguishers.
@Slimy - If you put in the times you can make into the multiplayer calendar, I can see if I can arrange myself for them. :)
Upgraded the Sunset for the 1.5 update! It's tons more awesome now. It demolishes my SS Beezlebub, but I haven't tested it against anything else yet.
Now that sails are a thing, do you intend to redesign your Beezlebub and Ozymandias?
