@Rhodes3 and @MrAnimator. Not 100% sure if this applies to ships as well but I know it applies to the shaper structures. The size of it doesn't make it laggier. Each piece nomatter the size has the same amount of resource demand. This is why shaper structure blueprints will be block based and not size based. If this DOES apply to ships then massive ships will be a lot easier to add. Entities ALREADY move with ships. Heck rodol demonstrates flying a punk tank and standing on the hatch door while firing his plasma cannons because it is a feature. If this doesn't convince you then let me just say rodol CURRENTLY plans to have some PRETTY big ships. Not really going to say much more since I don't want to spill everything we talk about and will just let rodol handle that when he decides to. Remember it MIGHT not be possible to make something but rodol is EXTREMELY devoted to making things of insane coolness happen and keeps working on things and trying to find work-arounds until they are possible.

For the ships I had a concept like Star Citizen in mind and that game works brilliantly with massive starships and you can walk around in them while someone else flies them and 100 other players in giant ships try to blow each other up(sorry for this tremendous exaggeration).

I was thinking more like EVE online. The large ships are stationary while smaller ships move. Both can attack.

Given the large battles that occur in that game, this setup does make it easier to handle battles.

The ships I know of right now will be able to move and be walked around on but seem to have more of a air to surface attack method rather than air to air. So you will need smaller ships to fight them or just use one that is flying much higher than it. Mainly the bombing platform is what I am thinking of. That is going to be faction owned and made but pretty big (Not star citizen 100 player ship big) and drop nukes like a carpet bomb.

Fair enough, as long as I can nuke everywhere in style, I'm happy
