Ship Sizes
I'm considering revamping the generally ship/hull sizes in the mod I'm working on, and maybe even adding some additional types.

What I'd like to do here is pose an open question, in order to get a general overview of how others see the ship/hull sizes:

Taking into account the inclusion of SEIV Neo-Standard, what would you rate the various ships classes at in terms of Tonnage?

Hvy Destroyer
Lt Cruiser
Heavy Cruiser
Hvy Dreadnought
Hvy Baseship

also possibly -

Small Worldship
Medium Wroldship
Large Worldship
Interceptor (small, fast ship designed to intercept enemies)
Attack Cruiser
Tactical Cruiser
Stealth Cruiser
Defense Cruiser
Small Drone
Medium Drone
Large Drone

However, it is not certain how many innocents have fallen pray to its Inquisition, and how many more have died because the technology that could have saved them was destroyed or was never researched under the Brotherhood''s Edicts.

Re: Ship Sizes
In truth, I wasn't planning to ADD more ship sizes to Neo-Standard, but rather use some of the existing images to fill in for those TYPES instead. The idea was that in addition to the NS Hulls, I'd have a handful of "special" types with enhanced abilities based on their special duties.

Re: Ship Sizes
That's the plan ;)

Mostly, I was just fishing for a generalized sense of size and proportion from the SEIV community at large, seeing what'd appeal overall as it were.

Re: Ship Sizes
A lot of time the term super or such doesn't mean the ship is larger, just means its more heavily armored or has increased fire power. Sherman tank, Super Sherman. (Same tank, but the super tank has larger weapons better armor, stronger motor. same size.)

Re: Ship Sizes
Okay - now for some suggestions from the audience....;)

I'm curious what "Special" category ship type/hulls would make an interesting additions? And why?

So far possible considerations are:

Stealth Cruiser
Attack ( or Tactical ) Cruiser
Defense Cruiser
Stealth Scout
Exploration Cruiser ( or Explorer )
