How much does it weigh?

Post by Steve! » Thu Feb 03, 2005 8:55 pm

Id love to be able to see how much a ships total weight is again, or should i say 'total mass' given that its in space. Currently I have to do all the math myself! I cant be bothered with that! :)

Why?
What use is this?
It's only a factor in determining how much turning and thrust you have per engine.

Curiosity! I'd love to know how much my ships weigh. Then i can alter the physical size of the ship image dependant on the weight, makes it feel a bit more realistic.

Its quite a pointless request I know, but its just something i'd like to see!

I'd like to see some guidance (possibly not enforced) on the ship designer that suggests size based on mass.

I used to show the ships weight (yeah, mass I know!) but I didn't think it was useful enough to warrant the space it took up on the screen.

I think it would be good, because I would like to see how much my Omega VIII.V weighs...(800,000 tons??)
