Starship Simulator game uses SketchUp for ship

Just been checking out a new game that is being developed, called Starship Simulator.
While watching one of his live streams I noticed that he said that the ship was drawn using SketchUp.

Timeline 1:01:25.
The ship is about 300 metes long. I think it’s got 8 decks.
Now that would be fun to draw up…

Nice. He does mention a few minutes later, only the modelling is done in SketchUp. All the rest like UV layout, materials, smoothing etc is done in Unreal Engine which makes sense.

Yes, maybe I should have mentioned that it was the modelling only, but I thought that he would explain it better then me, so I just left it.

Here is another stream. Very interesting as it’s more SketchUp related.
