Scale is very important to us and our mod for creating true realism. Apparently, it is not for other game designers, authors and more than half of the people leaving entries on wookiepedia...

It has taken an entire week to compile all the different ship sizes, accurately scale them next to one another, and redo the scaling to appropriate yet still believable sizes. Sometimes a ship is described as being as large as a CR90, yet it has windows that are bigger than a fighter plane.... it was infuriating... but we have taken the time to try our best to deliver "close-to-accurate" yet much more believable ship scaling sizes.

Speaking of which, something that just started bothering me. On Wookie, it seems that as CEC ships become smaller, their cargo capacity increases. I just looked at the Barloz, YT1300, and YT2000 pages, and they have the smaller YT2000 carrying the most amount of cargo. Any thoughts on that?

Now that you are saying that... Damn, you're right, never noticed that.
Maybe...
... all the systems, like live support, sensors weapons and most important reactors, cooling systems for those, shield generators, [insert everything energy related in here] and so forth, became smaller and smaller, so the ship could be built smaller with way more cargo space?
That's the only solution I could come up with, that somewhat has a tiny bit of sense to it ... somewhere ... maybe.

And: To the modders, it's nice to see such a ton of great work at once.
When I checed my updates I was like "WTF is wrong with those guys? - Whatever, it's amazing."

I just realized something. We're thinking about cargo capacity in terms of PHYSICAL VOLUME and not MASS/WEIGHT

it occurred to me that while 100 lb's of gold and 100 lb's of paper do weigh the same, the physical space taken up by the two substances is quite different.

They are serving the place of generic placeholders until later, then we will go back and make more authentic, era specific ships. Since pirates are not the primary factions of the mod , I feel this is acceptable while we work on more important things.

Pirates have to make do with what they have. Hell, North Korea is still using T34 tanks from World War 2, and possibly even a few tanks pre dating then, even though a single M1A2 Abrams could kill around 40 of them before having to get more ammo.
