An early release rough shell for people to mess with because I said Mass Effect, and I meant it! (to know what the hell I'm talking about see Systems Alliance SR-1 this shameless plug right here)
- Game version:
To those of you following the progress of my faction building you may notice that, unlike the rest of my builds, this ship is 1:2 scale rather than the usual 1:1. After much internal debate I have decided that the Mass Effect, Halo, and Battlestar Galactica factions will be, with few exceptions, built at 1:2 scale.
While this decision bothers me personally, I hope that it is less bothersome to you all. My reasons for this are twofold
1. The balance of the factions with each other works best with similarly sized vessels
2. The computing requirements for a faction relying significantly on 700m+ vessels would most likely cause even the thoughest rigs to lag (imagine for a moment fighting a Valkyrie Class Battlestar with 100+ turrets, times 10)
Looking at the vessels so far (see pics below) I believe this is the right decision, and as always, I apologize to anyone who was looking forward to a 1:1 scale Death Star.
Oh yea, there's an Autumn on the way too. ; )
