If it isn't long enough, it won't look right. The command superstructure has to be the same size on both it and the Imperial Star Destroyer.  Take a close look at any of the 8 km SSDs you may have seen, they either have no ISDs around, or are out of proportion. The ones in games like XW:A are even missing engines!

the 12 has my vote, big enough to look right and not so big that it will cause my half beat 5 year old computer to slowdown to a snails pace :p

First ssd I tried to convert was warped (all curvy when up close).. the one directly from XWA has bland textures and missing th engines)... a third one I found has slightly more contrast and the orange dots for all the engines... I got it to convet and put it in game to see how much I needed to scale it down and know what , it came out fine... But is 115km long, and 35km wide!

G.E. is right "size matters not, it's polygons." :nod:

I could leave it like this but dosen't look right around the ISD's... thanks to this thread I will downsize it to 18km... So it is reasonalbly in the ball park but is still BIG he he
Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide target selection !

Anyone that wants a 17km SSD, go and download the TD?? apocalypse its a 20KM ship and see what it does to your computer. It slows me down and i have a fast computer then think, Do I really want a ship this big if i can't play the level its in.

anyway just my way of looking at it

Re: What's the size of the SSD for this mod?
The Executers Size was long time reason for many discussions. :(

The WEG-Roleplay-Book said 8 km. The Eye (by looking the movie) said many more. In X-Wing-Alliance the Executer was 5.5 km long, but these Game had limited Canon.^^
Starwars.com said 12.8 km, that was canon. Youre looking right. The offical Site changed this, because the highest canon is the movie. Now 19 km are canon.

But another question:
What is about the Superstardestroyer Eclipse? And the smaler Superstardestroyers? Will some of these be used in the mod?

Necrophilia is a crime in most places.
