Ultimate Ship Size Comparison: SIDE/FRONT/TOP views!! [updated 08/09/09]

Post by someone else » Wed, 29. Apr 09, 21:31

Italian version here

Have you ever wondered on how big your Capital ship is?
Have you ever discussed for weeks what was the biggest/cooles/meanest ship in game?
Have you ever searched the forums for a good ship size comparison? (with awful results...)
Have you ever been annoyed by the utter lack of a 3 Views ship size Comparison?

You have found the right thread, my friend! :D

Here you will see ALL ships from M7 to M0 compared to see yourself how big/cool/mean they are!
JUMP GATES included!!!!!!!!!!!!

With a stick that is "1 Km long" in scale, to show the real dimensions of the ships. Now you can compare all your favourite ships to whatever you see.

Ingredients: X Models 3D Viewer, Microsoft paint, Gmax, PC's calculator, a ruler, lots of free time.

Hehhe "HOW big is the Thresher"...

Groovy - although the worrying thing is I was able to instantly recognise the Q because the of the sheer number of times I've seen those damned things heading straight at me :)


... actually these do show up something else. The Boreas really was supposed to be a light destroyer - it's tiny!

I can name all those ships simply by looking at their front and without looking at the list. What does it say about me?

It is large enough. :rofl:

Making a metric scale is meaningless (and too tricky for me).

What here means something is the relative scale.
(i.e. how big is the Tresher M7 compared to other M7, you'll see how big it is when I'll end the TOP view)

It says that you have played a lot, like me!

But for the sake of easy reading and for the noobs I added the numbers! (well, can you distinguish form a Shrike and a Gannet without numbers?)

I'd really recommend changing the file type to almost anything besides bmp.

why? it is not a big file!

EDIT: you were right... the other two images were each around 8 megabytes...
Converted to PNG, now less than 4 megabytes all together!

Actually I can tell the difference between Shrike and Gannet. I spent hours on F3 while my Shrike was busy clearing up Khaak sectors so I will recognize this slim profile everywhere. I still can't believe it's a Teladi design.

Hmm - you need to get out more? ;)

If it wasn't for the fact it's going, vertically top to bottom, M2, M1, TL I'd not have known which was the Python, Raptor or Elephant - nor the Tokyo vs MMBS... and a couple of others.

Mind, I've never yet seen some of those ships in-game, like the Aran or Valhalla - never seen a Hive Queen either for that matter. Do they actually exist?

yep! They are fully functional!

The Valhalla isn't anywhere in-game. But scripted in works fine (but is too big to use gates safely).

The Aran has a still active dedicated thread called "Goner Aran Capped!!!!!!!!!!!!!" somewhere.

The Hive Queen look like a Kha'ak carrier... (with lots of shields) not a lot of modeling effort! And can be found at the end of one plot.

... heheh, in which case I've probably killed it without even realising it (or one of the wingmen I took along did) since I've completed every major plot, as far as I know, in my main game.

I can be fairly certain about which plot it's in - unless I've missed something, there's one obvious major candidate.

it doesn't :P

The valhalla is not in the game, if it was, it'd crash the first time it tried to enter a gate.

Still can't get over how small the Shrike is compared to the other M7s, considering its hangar bay and cargo capacity...
