Great idea and great work! Nice to see the ships in relation to each other and so detailed (at least the biggies). I'm impressed with the ship designs in X3.

The Paranid ships looks very cool. I suspect they will be my choice when I get that far into the game.

my god how can the argon ships be better than the boron, especialy the carrier, argon can hold 60 where as the shark can only hold 45?!?.

Fantastic work!

Might I suggest something though, stop adding extra ships and think about exactly what you want to do. What you started off doing will probably not be what you finish off doing as you have more good ideas (and suggestions from others) along the way. Now you've experiemented a bit and found out what you can and can't do, have a bit of a think about the finished product you want. i t may be you need to do things a little differently and start getting the pic's again, or in a different way. Once you've decided what you want to do, you can go ahead and finish getting al the info.

To see what can be done, I would suggest taking a look at Jeff Russell's Starship Dimensions page.

Cool, I'm always trying to imagine how those ships compare to each other and how big they would be in real life. This is a great idea.

Nice work and ideas, i'm liking it.

I took this pickie when answering a fairy in distress, but didn't bother to use it at the time.

It shows a split TL (nellie) in comparison with a pirate base.....

I know it's no use to you but the background is very cool no?

Hope you like :wink:
Whoa that does look cool, I do love the backgrounds in this game, they are simply amazing.

That big pic you've got looks really cool, I would say make separate pictures for each race but then you wouldn't see the difference ion sizes so well. Those boron cap shps are huge!

EDIT: Just have to say again how cool that ship pic looks :D Excellent work there

Umm, when the image is at full size, the point type is actually 9 pt.

I guess I could make another image where the type is bigger so that way even when zommed out of the image, the type is still readable.

I wouldn't mind showing scale compared to different things, but for that, I would have to know how long one of these ships is. If anyone has any length data, that would be great.

As for now, I am simply going to collect the ships, scale them, then arrange them in some nice spiffy and snazzy arrangement.

Just a little note - you have the Split M1 and TL upside-down.
