"It looks so small," She said

And I was flying a supercap.

She was right, of course. Eve ships look tiny.

The recent change to camera angles and distance helped, but something still holding back the massive scale of eve. Big ships just dont feel big.

This video I just saw of freespace EVEmod give a good relation of size, but EVE itself still does not

Collision disances are one of the problems, ships just cant get close enough to each other to make a difference. Frigates should be able to get up and in the crevices of carrier and stations, but you get bumped out when you are stil quite a distance.

What can be done?

Did you mean "wat?"?
Or was that "wat" rhetorical?

When I was quite young one chick ask to see it, so I showed it to her. She yelled it's purple and ran away.


That's about as much as I can relate. Never did figure out how she saw purple.

Do not assume anything above this line was typed by me. Nerf the Truth, it's inconvenient.

Doppler effect. Next time don't thrust forward.

As for the OP, if ships had an appropriate sense of scale, ships would be tiny compared to asteroids, stations, planets, stars, etc.. It would take the focus away from the ships too much.

Just make everything tiny and have done with it. But leave weapon sizes the same. I want to see dread guns bigger than dreads.

imagine... a frigate fleet all 'clamping' themselves to the side of a capital ship and self destructing

(if star trek ever taught me anything is that you can eject your 'warp core' to kill the enemy and safely escape at slower-than-light-speeds)

Well yeah, that's freespace, where capitals look like capitals. I've been playing the babylon project for years, and yeah there is a big difference between the engines. Camera/fov tweaks might help some. And yes, collision detection.

I'm in it for the money

A big part of it is the terrible texture resolution on larger ships.

That's the issue with larger models. They tend to stretch the textures a lot. Figure your average High Resolution texture is 1024 by 1024, and that it is literally wrapped around the whole model. On a small ship, that might look fine, but on a large model.. not so much. It was pretty obvious, even on Battleships, up until V3.

That should be all.
