For Reference -



I like this ship too, but unfortunately, the SW universe is a massive one, and we only have two modellers and one texturer working for us ATM. Hence we're prioritizing canon ships from the original trilogy. However, chances are this mod'll be going on for a long time, so there's every possibility that it will gwt made - eventually.

Remember, we will accept mods from other people (providing they're of good quality) so if you can create one of these yourself, or find somebody else to create one for you, it will almost certainly be included in the mod (with due credit of course).

According to this site the YT-2400 is -

Damned Small for a Freighter!
Whilst the size of the Millennium Falcon remains in doubt, the Outrider's size is fairly well known.
West End Games gives a ship length of 21 metres.
The ILM design drawings give a *width* (including the 'outrigger') of 28.5 metres.
The saucer section has a diameter of just under 20m, and so, if you include the engine outlets, the WEG length of 21m is acceptable.

The main saucer hull is rather flat - unlike the gracefully curved main hull of the YT1300. The height of this flat disk is only about 2m (6'6''), which allowing for the thickness of the hull plating, leaves very little headroom. Fortunately, there are large central bulges top and bottom, around the gunwells. These allow greater headroom in the central parts of the vessel.

Because of the low sectional height of this ship, there is essentially NO room for mechanicals or storage beneath the floor or in the ceiling. Unlike the Millennium Falcon, the  Outrider has to fit everything in side-by-side.

This ship is rather small in internal capacity for a dedicated freighter.


but our Models are (currently) not entirely accurate Size wise. Our TIE Interceptor for example is 20 m long, whereas the official SW Databank tells us it's only supposed to be 9.6 m long ( http://www.starwars.com/databank/starship/tieinterceptor/ ). So use the above stats for your proportions and scale it around later.

...who then proceed to become pivotal charachters in the fall of the Empire in the same plotline of the story ;)

And what would you use the forks for anyway? The only thing they do on the Falcon is house lights and sit between the concussion torp launchers...

Actually they hold cargo loading arms that 'feed' the cargo into the interior bays.

yeah, like GE said, They hold the cargo  bay ramps and hold and such. There's really no reaosn for there to be gaps on the YT-2000

I remember that mission, the Escape from Kessel i think. The robot makes the wrong calculations and you end up in the center of an imperial firing range. :shaking:

We're sorting out the ship list right now in the Internal forum. I have the Essential Guide too, so don't you worry.

actually i'm going to have to say do the Outrider instead... the outrider is the second fastest ship in the book (the millenial falcon being the fastest)... in hyperspace i mean

i can't remember the statistics, or anything, but i think the falcon was a .5, and the outrider a close .7.

both had illegal, bootlegged drives

Yeah the otana was great ingame, but otherwise.. meh

Falcon - .5

Outridder - .75

IIRC they raced before Hoth. Dash lost by some.

Anyone actually make a model of the *gasp* Falcon herself? :drevil:  

or perhaps a regular Yt - 1300 ?

Not yet, but we'll get there - the YT 1300 was a rare ship, and we're concentrating on the more common ones right now (at least until we get a few more modders), but the fact that it's the falcon means that we'll get it in there eventually. :D

Bah. Who needs a model of the Falcon, when you could have one of the Falsehood instead, complete with droid-crushing action! :D

Will you be making the Death Star? If so, how will you manage it? It's huge is it not? 120km in diameter to be exact, can the FS engine support this?

i have an idea for a DS..well i'll give it at least a try, that's obvious, maybe since you won't surely approach a DS from space (it would take ages) we may work on different solutions for different missions, but i'll give a try at my idea first;)
size is the only thing i'm afraid of but if venom can put a 200km planet in game this shouldn't be a prob

You could copy alliance (1st endor DS mission) and just use an image on the bg with a Superlaser equipped alastor about 2000000k away :D but a model would be good, Especially if it was the second DS so we could fly around the incomplete struts, And ram an SSD into it, (after a kamikaze A-wing of course)


btw OUTRIDER IS KING, The outrider may not be the fastest ship :D but it more than outguns the Falcon and Otana, It could take on a corellian gunship i reckon,

Say what? The YT-1300 has got to be one of the most (if not the most) common light freighter in the SW galaxy! The YT-1300 has been around for decades by the time of Episode IV and has been sold to thousands of light freighter captains all over the galaxy.

The number of stock variants and conversion kits of the YT-1300 alone earned millions of credits for Corellian Engineering Corp.

Modding problems aside, the YT-1300 was NOT rare.
