Do you have additional requirements or links you'd like to share?

Perspective: the viewer is looking straight down at the top of the space station. The space station will rotate about its center.

Optional lower layer: Additional parts of the space station may appear below the 150px circle. They may extend outside of the circle. Your submission can include both the top layer and lower layer in the same image. The winner will be asked to split them into two images.

Optional animation: Simple animation will be favorably considered -- this can be twinkling of lights in windows, the pulsing of a power source, etc. Please supply all frames in one image if you will be animating.

Space station details:

1) No solar panels: the space station is powered by an internal fusion generator.

2) No visible weapons systems: these will be added on by the player as modules.

3) No doors for a shuttle bay or docking: these are added on by the player as modules.

4) Communication equipments (antennae, satellite dishes, etc): allowed but not required.

5) Windows: allowed but not required.

6) Thrusters: allowed but not required.

7) Size: the space station is physically large (think Deep Space Nine, not Skylab).
