Hey there,

So other than posting pictures of models( which do look great I must say) I suspect some of you will be wondering what we have been up to. We have a couple of projects on the go at the moment but as I am sure most of you are aware it is that time of year when exams are taking place all over the world at various levels of degrees. Real life does of course come first which is why myself and others from the team are busy studying hard and not doing much else really... :D

However we have not been too idle and once this busy period has passed we should have a nice healthy composition of shiny things for you to sample. This is an exciting period for all of us and as the model production is probably about 80% complete we can focus on other aspects such as rigging, texturing and unique gameplay experience. We are however along way from release so any help is greatly appreciated. This can be in any form, such as a "well done!" to a comprehensive talk on why a problem exists and how to fix it.

Also something which has recently come to my attention is the small amount of people within this community that seem to have a problem with this mod just existing and not being released by now. We work at our own pace and when we see fit to do so. It is not a race nor a comparison with anyone else's mod or add-on. I fully understand that some Members have colourful history with other Members which is understandable but it should not be turned into petty insults or jibes at anyone's work, whatever it maybe. I did not join this project to fight and argue about petty things. If I wanted to do that I would go back to junior school!!

So please, grow up and get on with your lives.

We are taking painstaking efforts to create a realistic and believable scale for all ships. We are using the schematics from wookipedia for our reference sources, and adjusting some things to make things more believable.

The Nebulon B for example, carried its fighter on external mounting racks where pilots could enter cockpits via docking tubes. The Nebulon B, for the Vong mod, will carry no fighters, for the fighter docking tubes were mainly designed for use with TIE fighters, not X-wings which are of a larger size. This is an example of how we are adjusting facts for the sake of realism.

I applaud this mod for trying to make it realistic cause clearly stats need to be changed when a 700 meter Defender assault carrier can only carry 3 squadrons while the Majestic heavy cruiser built on the same frame can carry 5 squadrons. Not sure what they were thinking there.

Your example is a bit strange, since although two ships in the New Class Modernisation Program may share the same hull, their internal designs may be different. But your point stands, there are some pretty strange ship stats out there

Nimitz. Most of the fighters are stored on the inside, and I'm pretty sure they have enough space to have all of the planes below deck.

An X-Wing has what, a 9 meter wingspan and is 12.5 meters in length? Arranged in a 6X4 formation with a meter between wingtips, the room holding the fighters would be 81X40 meters. Which could fit in the front superstructure of the Nebulon B. Divide that up into hangers and it's not too ridiculous.
