It has been a while since the last update, we have certainly dug in to make tiny bits of micro-level control and graphic work perfectly before we move on with the development.
With all that aside, we have a new set of ships coming into the playtesting branch of Airship: Academy very very soon. The first one I'd like to introduce you to is the "Valle Pony".
The Valle Pony is true, one of the smallest ships in Airship: Academy. Being classified as a freighter; it is one of the most important parts of the Viridian Ringers' daily life.
The origin of this airship's airframe design took place a century ago, during a long decline of the Vinician Republic. The age of exploration, back when large sailing ships would pack as much supply as they could to chart the edges of the unknown was finally over. But with that, dawn the age of new and smaller merchants, who take destiny into their own hands. They'd load a small ship with goods then traverse the length of the sky with the hope to profit from the hefty margin.
With such a demand for smaller ships with large storage space, the origin of the Valle Pony took place. Vinician shipwright, soon started introducing new ideas and innovations, from optimized sail layout, hull design, and even the use of the latest mana drive to cut down the cost of travel and ramp up the size of the storage space.
A century later, the Valle Pony as we know it would then populate the sky of Europa, and became the backbone of the NVR's Navy logistics during the great war and as we know it today.
