Dall-E not functioning after update

I am attempting to create some images for a TTRPG that I am working on, and trying to plan out, and the Image generator cannot, or does not, have the same capability it had previously. I had originally provided a prompt like the following, and it worked fine not even a week ago, now, I am constantly getting errors about the generation, which is insanely frustrating:

The ship should be designed using the Science Fiction Realism aesthetic, with a design philosophy aimed towards creating something alien to the human eye, but still symmetrical and functional. The artistic medium is high-quality velum paper, drawn using Watercolors, ink, Oil Paints, and Warm colors, and on a Space background with a nebula in the background made of swirling gases of blues, greens, and hues of purple. Stars should be twinkling in the background, and small dwarf planetoids floating around in the background. The ship should have several smaller fighters following it and acting as an escort for the larger ship.

This image displays a detailed sketch of a gargantuan troop transport and carrier. The bird-like spacecraft with an elongated “neck” hull section, and angular lines and design gives the ship and aggressive profile, helping to establishthe ship as a war ship, and built for defending itself. The bridge of the ship is located at the end of the elongated primary hull section, with the “Neck” of the craft giving the ship an almost elegent look.
The sub-light engines are located at the aft of the ship, and appear to be reinforced with segmented ablative armor.

Weapon systems are located on the primary hull of the ship, and the main guns of the ship being located on the tips of the angular attack profile wings. the Heavy Plasma Cannon Batteries being located on the “Wings” of the spacecraft with a reinforced walkway moving from the Heavy Plasma Cannon batteries to the primary hull of the ship. The Galley, Crew Quarters and Armor are all located towards the bridge of the Ship, all along the reinforced neck of the ship, connecting the Bridge to the rest of the ship, while the Vehicle Bay, and Assualt troop Drop Pod Bay are all located within the lower secondary hull of the ship, to provide ease of deployment for both Vehicles and Orbital Assault Troop Drop Pods.

The Troop and Vehicle carrier is labeled as a “Arbelist-Class” and is categorized under the Assault Troop Carrier Class. The design conveys a predatory and aggressive stance, with sharp angles and forward-leaning lines for the “Wings” of the craft acting as a tell-tale sign of the capabilities of this vessel and its purpose, as well as the overall design of the craft itself lending to the aggressive nature of the vessel.

The drawing shows the craft from an angled top view, allowing viewers to observe the main body, the wings, and the tail. The main body, or the elongated spine and neck of vessel, has the bridge prominently placed at the front, suggesting a small crew for the vessel. The bridge tapers toward the back, where there are indications of advanced propulsion systems and Faster-Than-Light capabilities. Powerful engines located at aft of the vessel labeled as “Dual High Efficiency Ion Engines” which are reinforced with heavy armor. The “Psionic-Warp Drives” are housed within the core of the vessel, though purple ambient light can be seen from deep within the ship. This suggests advanced propulsion capabilities.

The wings are broad and sweep forward from the central hull in a sharp, angular manner, with lines and panels that give the impression of a high degree of articulation. The tips of the wings contain what are labeled as “Heavy Plasma Cannon batteries,” indicating that these wings are not merely for support or maneuverability but also serve as platforms for powerful offensive capabilities. The “heavy plasma cannon batteries” are attached in a turret formation to allow for considerable coverage by the weapons platforms during altercations, with additional weapon batteries on the primary and secondary hull interspaced in a honeycomb pattern for maximum coverage, further emphasizing the craft’s capabilities. These additional weapon mounts are labeled as “Point-Defense Batteries” and “Anti-Personnel batteries”

Below the main image, a smaller sketch shows the spacecraft from the side, providing a clearer view of the weapon placements and the sleek, aerodynamic profile of the body.

A scale reference is provided by a human figure next to a 2-meter marker, which gives a sense of the craft’s size relative to a person.

The bottom right of the image features the emblem of the Celestial Dominion, A Starburst with a iron fist wrapped around the exploding star, which appears to be associated with the craft. It’s a simple yet sharp emblem that echoes the aggressive lines of the spacecraft itself.

The artistic rendering is done in watercolors, ink, and oil paints, with fine shading and cross-hatching with ink to add depth and texture to the overall piece and help to provide a sense of scale for the enormous vessel.

Overall, the image combines technical drawing with artistic flair to convey a sense of power, speed, and lethality, fitting for a combat-oriented spacecraft.

The artwork is a meticulous watercolor, ink, and oil painting of a spacecraft designed with avian and predatory influences in its structure and overall design, while still providing a sense of advanced engineering and aerodynamic profile. The attention to detail in the sketching is meticulous, with a focus on realism and mechanical feasibility.

Bridge and Command Deck: The “head” of the spacecraft is designed with a streamlined and aerodynamic shape, sharp and angular lines offering a dynamic and aggresive profile. Narrowing towards the front, yet still providing a clear 180 degree viewpoint for the bridgecrew during prolonged excursions during battle, which would likely minimize resistance if it were to move through an atmosphere. The canopy of the bridge is transparent, although tinted a gold-green to help block any radiation or light, is delineated but not detailed, implying visibility for the pilots of the carrier. The body has engraved lines suggesting panels or possibly access points with clear open sections on the secondary hull, clearly showing access points for escort fighters and drones and in use for the Assualt troop Drop Pods and Vehicle bays.

Wings and Armament: The wings are expansive, with a skeletal structure that has a series of intricate panel lines, giving a functional look as if each section could move independently. The wingspan is significant compared to the overall carrier, implying stability and control when in motion. The “Heavy Plasma Cannon batteries”, “Point-Defense Batteries”, and “Anti-Personnel Cannons” are sketched and inked with a heavier hand, indicating their solidity and importance, as well as providing an ease of view for anyone looking at the beautifully designed yet deadly capital-scale ship. The armaments of the vessel are sleek, with barrel-like shapes that taper towards the end, with yellow-green gasses escaping from the barrels, eluding to the potential of these deadly weapons. The sleek, yet aggressive lines are consistent with the overall design language of the craft.

Propulsion: The rear of the craft includes two “Dual Brokari High Efficiency Ion Engines” and “Dual Psionic-Warp Drives” built into the superstructure of the secondary and primary hull, with complex mechanical structures that suggest a high level of power and advanced propulsion capability. The engines are drawn with more shadowing, indicating depth and a three-dimensional form that protrudes from the back of the Primary and Secodary Hulls, as well as being attached minimally to the the forward-swept wings.

Perspective and Scale: The side and front renderings offer additional perspectives, reinforcing the three-dimensionality of the design. The front view emphasizes the forward-swept wing structure and the forward-mounted weaponry attached to the tips of the wings, reinforced with connections running to the hull and reinforced hard points at the end of the forward-swept wings, suggesting an aggressive stance. The side view reveals the craft’s profile, showing a gradual slope from the Bridge, to the primary and secondary hull, to the aft of the ship, with consistent paneling details. The scale reference indicates the craft’s size, demonstrating that it is exceptionally large in comparison to the average human, being able to hold dozens personnel and several starfighters or similar sized equipment.

Artistic Technique: The artist uses a range of shading, inking, and coloring techniques to suggest material properties and depth of the vessel, as well as the advanced design and structure, reinforcing that with careful coloring using watercolors, copic markers, and oil paints to offer various gradients of color and shadow for the ship, providing depth to the composition. Darker shades imply recessed or shadowed areas, while lighter shades highlight raised surfaces and edges catching the light. The use of various ambient colors and hues provides emphasis on areas representing things like propulsion, weapons, and even the energy shields used to keep open areas of ship.

Emblem: The emblem is a stark, simple design with three interlocking shapes. It’s drawn with clear, bold lines and filled with solid black and red, contrasting with the detailed grayscale of the spacecraft sketches.

The overall presentation of the image is both technical and artistic, demonstrating a thoughtful and detailed envisioning of a spacecraft with a clear function and aesthetic.

It may not be passing the safety checks around tokens like weapon systems, combat and the rest. This is my best guess.

Wouldn’t that make Dall-E effectivley useless for the majority of the Science Fiction, Gaming, and other entertainment industries?

Thank you for your reply. I am attempting to find ways to make it work at the moment

I agree, there has to be another reason I hope.

Fact that it worked also implies a possibility that this is a temporary glitch.

I’ll follow this thread to find out if you solve it.
