Re: December status and model releases
150km, no turrets and really low poly. (250-300ish) We don't have the model anymore so don't ask for it. The Gargant would be fighting it from the outside and so would be the Icanus, though not together as allies.
At that scale you'd be able to see, what, all of three polys on your screen at once? :D

Since it was retail FS2 most likely.

Re: December status and model releases
I read something a while back while searching the forum on the Gargant...is it true that the Icanus' primary cannon would only do about 1% damage to the Gargant?  I just read the wiki entry on the Icanus and its main weapon was designed to crack planets.

1% damage to one of its turrets.

Not sure, the model randomly vanishes so that it is invisible from certain angles though you can still collide with it. It only did that in nebula's though. It was a long while ago that I tried it so it may work now, I'll see if I can test it this week.

Btw, this was fixed right at the end of MediaVPs_2014 Beta phase, when HTL Sathanas was having similar problems. Nowadays all big ships should work with nebulas regardless of size.

It's a good thing the Gargant didn't make it to Sol and core GTVA systems then huh?

No it's not, the model hasn't been touched since the early post R1 days. It still works in FSOpen fine though.
But there's no way we'll get a HTL of that when we don't have anyone working on the Gigas which is more important.
