The Ship plans give you the layout of the decks on the ship.
Chernobyl said:given the size of teh hyperion plans and the g'quan plans I wouldn't expect the primus plans to be to rpg scale. the ships are far, far too big for that.
The hyperion is just over a kilometer long at 1025 meters (according to book 2 fleet lists, non-revised)
that would be 3362 feet, 672 5' squares, or 56 actual feet in length.
the primus would not be quite as long, (at 738 meters) but I think you see where I'm going...
to mongoose, I really like this series of ships, I'd like to recommend an Omega, Nova, Asimov liner, and sharlin ship plan series as well!

What is Lego Scale, I mean I know it's different from Duplo scale, but what size ratio are we talking?
Kizarvexis said:I calc'd it using a LEGO minifig. I put the minifig at a scale 6'.

So how tall's a minifig? I'm an engineer goddamnit, I can do anything so long as I get the right numbers :lol:
lastbesthope said:So approx 1:42.5 scale so by those numbers the Shuttle would be about 105 feet long.
That's what I meant...thanks. I didn't expect the entire ship to be in scale with 28mm figures, but I thought it might include some areas like the bridge, sick bay, etc. I guess I'll just enlarge those areas from the map or maybe create my own in Illustrator.lastbesthope said:I can't speak for the Primus plans as they're not out yet, but the Hyperion and G'Quan plans are not large enough to use as floor maps for 25 mm minis in an RPG session.
I hope that answers your question.
Chernobyl said:temple - I've been thinking of doing something along those lines using the ship plan downloads in PDF form. anybody know how good the resolution is on the maps?
That's what I was thinking. It's not like I'd want to print out "Security Closet B" and the restrooms. Most of the time, characters would take the lifts to their destinations, so the long hallways aren't necessary. It would be cool to incorporate the new minis into the game and have a nice floorplan for them to stand on.Chernobyl said:obviously I'd limit myself to important areas... :lol:

Huh? As I understand it the Atmospheric Shuttle is about 32 meters long, which would be around 100 feet long. If you took the 'real life' size of the shuttle and made it to scale for a LEGO minifig, so that the LEGO shuttle would be the same size compared to the minifig as the 'real life' shuttle would be to Sinclair and Garibaldi, then the LEGO EA Shuttle would be 29.75 inches long.
