I think it's hilarious that my Machariel is almost bigger than my archon, and my archon is only marginally shorter than my nyx.

Make them bigger. Supercarrier, though, is a fine name. "Assault Carrier" just reminds me of this ( )

Regular carriers could use a little scaling-up as well.

I'll support this because realismExclamation is affected by this class's model size.

I'm sensing a lot of pee-pee size insecurity in this thread. Say it ain't so guys?

A man shall not be judged by the size of his ship, but by the content of his carrier!

both the name 'supercarrier' is stupid as balls and they're too small, i agree

however this is pretty hilariously low priority. i can throw it in our 'ship models and paint' summit topic though and hope for the best. it might be an easy fix, i have no idea how model scaling works! cross your fingers

'assault carriers' ain't bad, mothership would have been fine, supercarrier is terrible

two things.

A. THIS IS REDICLOUS. make them bigger. the name isnt bad but there need to be serious changes to make it fit.
B. make assault carriers current supercarriers into a TII version with better logistcs. this could also solve the titan problem. TII titan logistics TI damge.. TIII moble jump bridge with ok weppons.
i support

and if CCP is looking at rebalancing ship sizes they shouldn't only look at supercarriers.
yes the supercarriers are the best example, but there are allot of ships with a weird sizes, my golem is like as big as my harbinger...

Supported if the Nidhoggur gets on the list as well.

If you own a sc or have ever had the "Bad touch" put on you by one, support this!

Posting in a size enhancement thread to confirm that size does matter.

Posted - 2011.05.18 10:30:00 - [261]

Can anyone confirm that CCP are updating the ship graphics soon? I suspect I may have seen pictures of the new textures in a thread alongside the proposed ship paintjobs and corp logos.

If that were the case, they could scale the ships in the same patch as the new graphics (presumably designed to fit the new size) and not have to worry about blurred texture scaling.

Not only should they be larger, but their collision boxes should be increased as well.

Looks impressive when 40+ (or however large a SC roam is these days Smile) drop out at a single cyno but dammit, they should be bouncing all over the damn place when that many drop in around one point in space (would act a nice balancing feature as well).

Idea is nice on paper, but silly in eve. Big ships are horribly bad to manouver around anything, since due some game mechanic, range from ship is calculated differently from the bumbing mechanic. You can be like 4kilometers from object, but cannot approach it anymore, since some imaginary boundary is already touching it (even though gfx is not).

For example big ships like ragnarok cannot directly approach ship maintenance array on a pos, because the ship gets bumbed by the ship maintenance before its in range.

Also you can fit like one titan (gfx wise) between two titans, but still the two titans are 0m from each other.

If game would handle bumbs and ship boundaries correctly, bigger size would be nice.

With the current mechanics, no.

What does this mean? True sizes?
If this is a make it bigger because it will look cooler, not supported.
The ship sizes were designed that way for reasons ( I don't know what they are, but unless the art direction team at ccp was drunk when they decided the sizes, there must be reasons why. )

A reason of " because it looks cooler " is not going to cut it as justification alone.

Posted - 2011.05.23 00:41:00 - [265]

supported, make them bigger. make normal carriers bigger as well.

I TOTALLY agree. SCALE is completely WRONG in-game, when my NYX shows up i often have to zoom into it in large fleets of non supers because as others have pointed out, there are BS and carriers which are " almost " the same size when large ships are gathered in close range....
Allow me also to point out that tiny ships are allowed to bump what is MEANT TO BE a humangous ship!!!!

Posted - 2011.05.25 16:43:00 - [267]

currently the rifter's design is too small to accommodate the pod. there looks like a bridge where a human pilot would be, but compared side by side the pod would breach the hull of the rifter.

All ships need a scale fix YARRRR!!

Do you know what noob's ask for the first time when they see SC?

"How the **** my MOA will fit in it shipmaintain bay? It it way too small!"

So i completely agree on this one.
