The BYO can barely be considered a “ship” when initially deployed; more of a construction platform launched hazardously into space. The only thing that separates crews on a BYO from breathable safety and the cold vacuum of space are typically little airtight flaps of plastic. Equipped with a plethora of building material and tools fit for construction, BYO vessels are seen in a variety of shapes and sizes, and almost never with any consistency of form.

"Despite the attempts to catalogue every ship, it is almost impossible to do so, as some vessel captains opt to build their own ships rather than buy one. The reason may be economical, building a ship by oneself can be much cheaper than than simply buying one, Or it can be simply be for self-expression. Or for the challenge."
— Excerpt from Ashwalker's Guide to The Galaxy (Revised Edition). (F.S. 504)


Is every other ship boring, dull and absolutely lame for you? Does the hard work of ship designers, builders and architects only bring forth scolding hatred? Do you have some sort of engineering knowledge, or wish to acquire it? Are you insane, mentally unwell, or really like lego? Whatever glorified Tide-class/absolute hellscape/great paradise of engineering you are attempting to build, rest assured, this is the ship for you! Equipped with just what you need to Build Your First Ship! Or maybe your 35th. Who knows.

You can (currently) only build in open space. Please keep this in mind before landing on a jungle planet and getting all your hard work left behind.
