*Dark Hunter hates not knowing how long ships are in miles!!!


Kilometers aren't used much here in America....

I was taught metric :p

 
Re: Anyone notice how beam weapons in Inferno are just a tiny bit Over-powered?
I was taught metric too.... after inches/feet/miles. I just don't have any reference as to how long a kilometer is. My thinking is structured in miles.


Now let's see..... 1.6 kilometers is equivalent to 1 mile..... Gargant is 37.8km long....calculator..... Gargant's length in miles= 23.625! :yes2:


Now I have some frame of reference! :D

About... 7.8 leagues.  :D

And 4.01 x 10^-12   Light years....

And 2.54 x 10^-10 AU's.....

And 1.23 x 10^-12 Parsecs if you wish to know.  :lol:

The Gargant was made from 2 combined R1 Gigas meshes.

However it's not that giant ship I imaged...
Is there a limit to the dimensions of a ship? I want to create the GTVSH ******* **** when I become a more experienced modeller,it's 60 kilometers long...
I open converted POF files with TrueSpace and a normal destroyer occupates all the monitor!

occupies.


You can make MASSIVE models in FreeSpace (Earth), but giving them turrets and making them HTL is NOT a good idea.

It's on a backup cd somewhere, and I don't have time to go hunting for it.

I didn't mark what's on some of my old cds well either, so it could be anywhere.

Another Inquisitor? See this fresh post: http://www.games-workshop-tilea.com/public/community/index.php?showtopic=9034&st=0&#entry198961
That's what Mobius does when it writes in his first language!
60km warships are possible.All ok.(Except those bastards http://www.games-workshop-tilea.com they have impeded me to add a link to HLP in my signature! I wanted to recruit more members,thre are many Star Trek and Star Wars fans out there...).
I'm gonna send a fleet to punish them.The Gargant is welcome.

Well, you'd have a grammar killing spree if I wrote in Italian... :D

Hey, Woo, are you still using the SOC Galatea?

Doesn't that bring back memories to the staff? You know, first ever Inferno build, only some reskins........

I remember when I didn't even have an account and I was poking around Inferno forums, not even knowing what the heck they were... Will the new forums ever give the projects custom forum themes? That would be really nice. :nod:
