Ship size comparrision - A,B,P,X

Post by Player. » Fri, 9. Feb 07, 19:09

For anyone wondering the size of ships in the Argon fleet here's a small picture to demostrate, will add more if people like this. :)

This one shows only fighters and M6 ship beacuse m6 while not being fighters are not capitol ships as well so decided to put them in :roll:

Nice work!! Still remember the cap ship comparison someone did some time ago. Looking forward to seeing more :)

Looking at that pic, you gotta wonder what Egosoft were thinking when creating the Eclipse :P

The Centaur is a lot smaller than I'd thought it would be, especially given its appalling manoeuvrability...

Why is the discoverer way bigger than the Buster? I had noticed this in game, but it is even more obvious in a true scale pic like that. It's not just a bit bigger, it's almost as big as the Nova! WTF?

Also, yes please make more, this kind of thing is awesome. Are you taking the shots from the model viewer, game, or something else?

As for the eclipse, they were thinking 'Wood Louse'.

Well i think that the shape of the Eclipse is very amusing, it looks like roach ^^. Man i started laughing when i saw it first time in game.

I'd argue that the size of the Discoverer is due to the added fuel and engine space needed for it to go so fast...

well, at least that's what I tell myself to make me feel better. :wink:

...yeah, the Eclipse is one ugly duckling. :P

I thought that at least initially, Ego had the disco and buster models switched. The disco was also classed as an M4 for a few patches as well.

You know that's already been done, right? Somebody posted a link in an earlier post.
