A Machariel as a BS is same big as a carrier... looks really bad if you see them on the same grid.

Super Carriers should be large enough to notice they are there in a battle Twisted Evil. They shouldn't blend in with the other carriers. It should be instantly apparent that a super cap has arrived (like when a titan drops in). Considering they can't dock, they definitely should be larger than dreads.



Cool Oh Yea make them BIG lol

If they cant dock (Which i support) then they must be bigger, since they are considered SUPER carriers

Supported. Motherships should have been half the size of titans, at least. Carriers should be equal to or slightly bigger than dreads in size.

wouldn't it be more logical to reduce size of battleships? ship with 500,000 m3 volume shouldn't really be longer than 320-500 meters.

Better proportions please.

Better explosive "Boom, I am here be scared" jump effects too.
Rather than the years old and universally hated plop I just dropped a log down the toilet effect with have at present.

Supporting, indirectly. MS should be twice carriers, carriers are good, dreads are too big, and battleships are too big. If they all got scaled down, and MS increased a bit, it would all look right.

I agree, all capitals need to be increased in size, not just super carriers. It is a bit absurd to see a machariel next to a Wyvern or Hel....


I only just recently saw a Wyvern in combat, and was a bit suprised to see my revelation was bigger..... This needs to be changed. No ship THAT powerfull should be so small....

they're "carriers". what do they carry? Really small one man fighter pilot ships. Why should they be bigger than the neded size to hold those ships? ******ed.

Now here is what we call an obvious and poorly constructed troll. Thanks for the bump though. Laughing


He has a point. The carriers carry drones, and the amount of space is less then the largest industrial ship. They arent really carriers as they stand, except by the definition of "does little else but". However, the lore says they are too massive to dock. if thats the case, show it? Make them bigger.
I support this.
I also support upping their drone bay space

As I understand it, carriers are better labelled "Escort Carriers" whereas current Supercarriers are the equivalent of modern naval CVN's.

But yeah, I still think they should be at least twice their current size as scaled in game.

Well, they carry the raw drone bay capacity, the corphangar and fuel bay, the ship maintenance array (10^6 m3 on a carrier, 2.5*10^6 on a supercarrier; all freighters are < 10^6 m3 and only carry packaged ships), AND the implied support equipment for everything on the ship (capital-sized modules, fighter/bomber/drone refit and maintenance, ammo and/or torpedo holds/factories, lots of crew and crew support, jump drive and jump drive supply, divisions and controls for access to the corphangar from outside the ship, added reinforcement so it doesn't break under its own inertia, etc. ad nauseam).

Both carriers and supercarriers should be made quite a bit larger, actually, using the Dreadnought as a basis of dockable size. You might still have to justify jumping Hyperions around as a partial repackage or strapping it to the outside or something, but it's better than a Machariel dwarfing a Thanatos and a Moros the same to a Nyx :D

{edit since Finnegan's nitpicking and I don't feel like spamming the thread - what exactly do you call that nice plastic wrap aside from packaging for your ship, despite the not-clicking-Repackage? :p}

Just a tangent, but that's not true. I routinely transport rigged ships with my Charon back and forth across all of EVE. Just set them up in a courier contract. But yah, make supers huuuuuuge.

Also watch the rorqual. You can put a rorqual in a normal ship maintenance bay.
How can this be ?
The rorqual or a carrier is way to big to go into this tiny thing. Looks awful.

I'm all for getting some various EVE graphics fixed up.
Supported!

If you want to fix up missiles and get them to looking better (and maybe even reducing lag so you can enjoy your hopefully bigger and better carriers) support my proposal:

Improve Missile Graphic and Potentially Reduce Lag

EDIT: Although I just realized that the main reason I fly a Hyperion is the topic of this thread... =/ Oh well, just keep it bigger than other battleships!

I concurr. Make all ships, stations, planets, etc scale appropriately to what is documented.

Agree... The Stations would need to be at least doubled also..
This was an oooold issue and it NEVER got fixed. I remember people complaining about the ship sizes and station sizes. It seems to me the bases got shrunk. Now we see capitals shrunk aswell...

Make the scaling accurate ffs! Oh... and windows too :)

I'm not sure why this hasn't been done already. It doesn’t seem to be the kind of thing that would cause too much, if any, problems in terms of server resources and that’s the only good reason I can think of for not doing this.

It shouldn’t even require too much in the way of design work for CCP. Of course, it would mean they’d have to fix something that exists rather than bring in new content, but surely they can do it in this case.
