xeon_1 - doesn't really matter how they are formed up. I don't mind flying around, just need them seperated by a few kilometers on all sides. Thank you so much for that, gonna help out a TON. I was waiting for these ships to come to all stop while trying to get lined up for the shot, VERY time consuming.

szuur - I am updating the link on the first page with every change I make


Thinking of an in detail chart for each ship, which will include ship specs (weapons, speed etc), hardpoint locations, things of interest, length, width, height....

And seperate image with all the ships to compare size...

Finished measuring the ships, I am going to just type the result here, and update it, until I figure out how I want to organize all this.

Boron: M1 2885 meters
M2 2831 meters
M6 152 meters

Split: M1 1928 meters
TL 2052 meters
M6 148 meters

Paranid: M1 1340 meters
TL 1649 meters
M6 181 Meters

Argon: Titan 1745 meters
System Specs:
P4 3.00 ghz HT
256mb PCI-E 6800gt 78.01 drivers
2 gig ram/4 512 meg sticks

Albatron socket 478 MB w/ PCI-E slot

Firstly, this is a fantastic piece of work. I'm still looking at the picture, its a work of art.

Second, I think this now completely removes any argument about people saying "Of course you can't fit a super freighter into a TL or M1 or M2, it's got as much cargo space as them!". Or why you can't fit a few fighters into a M2. This is complete proof that the reasons you can't are not logical or consistant at all, just a nerf.

But it's so huge Ship! Of coures how come M3 destory M1 or M2 single hand due to Shield too slow to recover to give M3 keep shooting, and some anit-fighter gun like flak short ranges, and some gun like PPC is very slow, yeah I know there mod out fixed this but I was talk about Normal X-3 1.2.1. Way to look at TL almost same size to M1 or M2 and yet their shield is lighter then M1, or M2?

Not the size of the ship that matters, it's the power of the munitions.

On another note, Arwan has finished his shots of the Argon ships (Spectacular I might add) and they should be up shortly.

M1 and M2, TL for that's matter hold many kind of Weapons and Ammo, M3 and M4 hold very, very limited, Look at this, Buster almost dot to Argon M2, I dare say Nova little bigger then Buster and dont have lot of Munitions againt those ship, Argon M2, and yet it's can be happan in the game.

Boy, I can't wait to see fine art.

Argon ships added.

Image is almost complete for the larger ships minus the Teladi. Can't get close enough with out them trying to kill me, so I will be waiting on xeon_1's wonderful script.

Seeing that the M3-M5 classes will be to small on this scale to make anything of them, I am going to make a seperate page for fighters, and another for freighters.

Of course, if anybody has anything, or any ideas to make this better, I'm all ears.

maybe we could get someone to template a page that will let you put one ship on top of your monitor and another on the botom of your monitor so you can see them in scale to one another and we can just put a size scale up against each ship so you can see the real size of each ship this way you can keep the smaller fighter ships there as well as you wouldnt need to shrink them down just put a scale next to them that relates to there size and then one next to the other ship in the other window that relates to that ships size.

The Argon M2 looks a little fisheyed (for example there doesn't seem to be evidence of the weird antenna in front) ... that's all really.

Checking the Argon M2

Xenon should hopefully be in there.

First, great job! It's fun to see them scaled like this.

Second... wow.... it's amazing to see how much they're using the same models and just warping them in the 3D editor, to get variants like TL's, M2's and M1's. That's a little disappointing. A modern nuke aircraft carrier really doesn't look that much like a big superfreighter.
