 Year 9 Day 355 17:29 Ship volumes logic question Tarc Drathul I can't believe this isn't documented, It could be I just missed it, but I'm curious, How does a ship 400M long have 1,000,000 M^3 of space in it? 1,000,000 / 400 = 2500 so the ship would look like a saucer.... 2500 meters in diameter. Is this a adjustment from reality thing to simply make it so we can haul stuff? Just wondering... I notice this is common across most of the Capital and cargo vessels. Fighters too...

If the ship is even only 20 meters high, it becomes only 125m wide...____________"May the Grace of Ara go with you, and His Vengeance be wrought upon your enemies."

I've been calculating 1 foot thick concrete slabs all week... Just had it stuck in my head that everything is 1 thick... Tarc wonders off in search of beer and sleep in no particular order of importance..... Year 9 Day 356 1:47 Ship volumes logic question Wuma Uxal-Lumir makes me wonder about city sizes and ship sizes. A bulk freighter can land in 1 city square but a hotel is 1x3 and smaller then the bulk. Will this be changed also?____________ Year 9 Day 356 2:14 Ship volumes logic question Syn No. Planetary dimensions are largely unrealistic; individual squares are assumed to be 1x1km, which obviously results in improbably large facilities. All of this is for balance, not realism.____________ Year 9 Day 356 7:41 Ship volumes logic question Dead Sin Jade I always thought it was 2x2... =\ Year 9 Day 356 8:01 Ship volumes logic question Ellias Aubec Although Cam would rather the size removed from the rules page. Besides, I think there was something about having the facilities renamed so that they sounded more like a collection of similar buildings like an industrial estate, rather than sounding like just a single building. Cities might make more sense then.____________
