Just throwing this one out there on an off chance. I realise that we are just dealing with 2D images, but does anyone know if its possible to make some sections of a ship/base "spin"?

I cant see it working ATM.
Creatures are set up for animation and ships simply are not.
AFAIK They are handled in a completely different way to each other.

If the developers would add support for this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/APNG then it would probably work...

Edit: project home: http://animatedpng.com/

Edit2: View the below image with Firefox v3.x for a basic example of animated .png's





Edit3: One last example. This is the existing space slug .png's combined into an animated png
