I think I've heard A_C talk about a merge with master, so we actually have to please everyone; or rather, to quote someone I don't remember the name of, displease everyone equally.
That's not for me to decide of course but if that were to be a possibility then you would deffinitely have a point.
Just to be clear: I'm betting on its success (even though I don't like the reduced scanner range; but if it has to be part of the "package" I can live with it). I'm adapting what I'm doing to it. I'm pointing out potential problems so that the transition is as smooth as possible.
Thanks for your faith in the project, especially to the extent of making rescale-friendly stuff - much appreciated
As for the scanner, what exactly don't you like about it being smaller?
I ask partly because it doesn't have to be as small as I've made it.
Once I'd shrunk some of the ships then I needed to reduce the speeds or we'd have some very nippy ships out there. Reducing the speeds creates the need for either a smaller scanner or a deep love for all things mass-lock.
All ships are half as fast, so the scanner need only be shrunk to half size (as it was in versions 1 and 2 of this thing) but here I've shrunk it to 1/3 size (the most extreme level to which some of the ships have been shrunk). This does have some 'benefits' however such as reduced time spent in masslock; overtaking other ships is a little more 'scenic'; very large objects (see below) can appear as such on scanner; and more 'interesting' station approach.
Of course I could have just carried on making things bigger and not needed to shrink anything but proportionally there would have been no real difference.
As for help, is it too early to report problematic OXPs and possible fixes?
Please do - I had meant to ask earlier
even at 1:1 the station blip will appear slightly larger than a ship one as seen in the third picture of this post
A 1/3 size scanner is big enough for an anaconda to still have a small blip and yet small enough for a station to have a slightly bigger one.
Have you found a 'huge' asteroids yet?
Thanks for the report pleiadian.
