    How tall (Approximately) is the player, just a quick thing I wanted to know.

    And also something else, are these ships meant to look completely new or a little worn down and weathered?

    The ship models should be made as a new version and we will use textures and substances to age them. Once the model is ready to be skinned, we can provide some Substances that have an 'age' component that will allow the ship to go from new to worn dynamically.

    Ah, so the longer that ship has lived, the more worn it gets, very nice, may I request my ships to sail forever? :p

    EDIT : By lived I meant sailed, sorry

    It's been a while since my last post here, and I'm still busy with studies, but want to see about hopefully getting back into this project sometime in the near future. Until I’m ready to start contributing again, can anyone tell me what scale things need to be modelled to for the game?

    I would like play around in Blender a bit and thought I might as well ask the question, in case I come up with something that could be used... :bonaparte

    PS: I'm not wanting to model anything in particular at the moment as i'll only really have time towards the end of the year, just wanted to find out about the scale needed for modelled items.
