Size of the station depends on how much work you want to do:

That's 4 Arcas, 4 GTExD, 2 GTExA and 4 docking pieces. That's about 5km long.

Sandwich has also sent me the GTExE (Arcadia engine module) which I'm currently working on.

That big one in the last pic, or the individual parts?

I'm making another one, the GTExG:



This isn't too replace the Sol gate.

That gives you

GTExD - Defense module
GTExA - Arcadia-Arcas/Arcas-Arcas/Arcadia-Arcadia module
GTExE - Engine module
GTExG - Gate module

Ok I've got the GTExA docking to either another module or directly to the Arcas itself. Once I do the same for the others you won't need to manually place the station anymore. However this will be very difficult to achieve with the Arcadia, since its hole is off center. It may be better to produce a new Arcadia with the hole at position 0,0,0. Though you could dock the extensions to each other and manually move the Arcadia like I did in the earlier shots...

All pieces can now dock with the Arcas itself as seen here:



Not all POF data is done on those yet.

Shot of the GTExE:

Shot of the GTExG:


That 'station' has 196 turrets

36 for each Arcas
25 for each GTExD
2 on the ETExE

Now I just have to figure out what to do with the Arcadia...

No I mean for docking to the extensions.

I either:

1. reconvert the Arcadia so its hole is at position 0,0,0

2. spend hours trying to get the dock points to the middle of the hole

3. do nothing and make you dock the extensions together and then manually place the Arcadia over them.

You've got the Arcadia in Max/Truespace, right?  Select the vertices around one of the inner rings of the hole and average them.  Presto, you've got the coordinates (or 1/20 times the coordinates, in Truespace's case) for the center of the hole.  The depth distance should still be 0 as the station is more or less symmetric along its x-y plane.
who needs a signature? ;)
It's not much of an excuse for a website, but my stuff can be found here

The axis of the station is in a funny place, so that wasn't the case.

But thanks that did the trick, the Arcadia is now dockable to the extensions as well now :)

Based off the GTExG:

There's 2 in that shot.

The GTExY or shipyard module is compatible with some of the largest GTVA craft. However it's Arcas only as it won't fit on the Arcadia due to its size.

We have:

GTI Arcas - Main Station
GTI Arcadia - Civ Station (probably not in main campaign)
GTExD
GTExE (probably not in main campaign)
GTExA
GTExG (probably not in main campaign)
GTExY
GTI Melia (Obviously used)
Terran Comm Station (Seen in M3)
3 small docking pieces (Seen in M3)

I also have plans for a GTExS (Science array) and GTExR (Miner Refinery) and a GTExF (fighterbay) for the Arcadia, though no promises on those.

GTExY - that's one a hell shipyard :D
GTExA - What is that ??
GTExD - defence extension ??

Does EAI Lycaon is still in R2??
Can we see some R2 EA stations? (I mean smaller ones not this 40-60km one).

BTW tell me that this EA megastation isn't orbiting Earth or any habited planet. You know 2 km asteroing can whipe out whole continent, I know that the asteroids have bigger kinetic energy but I would feel much safe if something 60km size, anti-high power beams armoured military stuff wouldn't floating over my head.
:D

Connects the Arcadia to another Arcadia, or and Arcas to Arcas, or an Arcadia to Arcas, basically a middle piece to form a larger station.

Yeah it's designed to boost the number of turrets the Arcadia has.

They have the Lycaon and Cepheus, both have been featured in screenshots before.
The EA don't have a 40km station. The Icanus drydock is only 25km and is the one used in R1.

The Icanus drydock is in Mars orbit, and Mars is habited :p

Weard, I could bet that I saw a screenshots of really big EA station with something like Destroyer garage INSIDE it, hmmm...

25 km, well we need a big SY for big toys I must admit it.

It would be funny to have a comparing scale of Human,Biggest Inf bomber, WTC, cruised, destroyer and Garganth.

I always wonder how big Gargant would be if she would hover over NY.
Same thing for low orbit (100-150 km), I put a Collosus 150km away in Fred and it was visible. Gargand would be a size of Moon I think :D.

Ah that was the Atlantis. It causes too much slowdown.

If you put the Gigas at 0, and zoom out fully, most of it will vanish due to FRED having a low Z-Buffer limit now. The Gargant can't be seen fully if you try to view it in FRED.

Wow, and here I was thinking that Atlantis was over in Pegasus :p...

...Great models, but might I ask, which Race/Group has the largest Station/Shipyard/Installation...?

The Hara is 38km*34km*42km making it the largest station. The next largest is probably the Icanus dock @12km*8km*25km, then the Melia @ 17km*14km*6km.

I'll be damned, SI Hara 52264 cubic km. I'm guessing that after destroying one of those we seriously pissed of the Shivans that's why they send a Gargant on us :D
