So, I've got a question about something. I'm piecing together the WIP post for a ship for Dorin (Could very well be a few weeks until he actually gets it ICly), and I'm running into some....issues.
My problem can be summed up quite nicely with this: https://robertsspace...llation-Phoenix
This is the link for the Star Citizen ship I'm using as the base-line for Dorin's ship. Obviously some stuff will change, but I'm taking full advantage of the fact that it has a bunch of stats already listed, including turn ratings and speed ratings. So, for you people that know things about spaceship design, what ratings would these stats warrant, and/or should I scale them down in some way? While all the stats are listed under the link provided, I'll list them below for the ease of access.
61 x 26 x 14 Meters (So small Corvette by Chaos standards, large fighter by Anaxes College Standards)
Cruise Speed: 190 m/s
Top Speed: 985 m/s (roughly 3500 kph)
25 / 25 / 50 Degrees per second Pitch, Yaw, and Roll, respectively.
This happening from 12 gimballed manuvering thrusters, four retro thrusters, 4 VTOL thrusters, and 4 main engine nacelles.
I did some hunting for sublight speeds on existing star wars ships, and wasn't able to find enough matching data to really have any idea how realistic any of this would be for conversion to the Star Wars universe. If you have any thoughts, comments, or suggestions, I'm all ears.
