Suggestion for larger Planet and asteroid sizes
Currently, the size of planets is about the size of a large moon. The other day I flew as close as possible to a planet without crashing, and had the space station selected which was on the other side of the planet. The distance between my ship and the station was under 2500 km, with the planet between us.

Are you planning to increase the size of planets in a later patch? I'd like to see much larger planets in the future. Larger planets will add more atmosphere and eye candy to your game.

Wickerson, planets are typically HUGE, getting within 2500 km between you and a station with planet between would be tricky to do, to say the least. Can you get me a screenshot of what you're seeing? Also, the guys will take a look at the scale from our end for this.

Hey Kaypix, thanks for looking into this. I can't seem to replicate at this time; there was a small planet but the space station is much farther away whenever I start that game. However, when I created a new game today the planet sizes were much larger. If it happens again I will send you a screenshot, and I will continue to see if I can make it happen again.

On a side note, I did fly straight through a star earlier.

Hi Kaypix, I flew as close as possible to a planet and selected an asteroid on the other side. The asteroid was about 3600km away.

The planets in this save file look bigger than my old one, but they still feel a bit small.

The planets were resized for our D9 Development build, once that's pushed out you should see the sizes.

Awesome! Any idea when the D9 build will be pushed out?

It's already available for our Beta testers (see the announcement and the Beta Patch Notes subforum

Thanks, I've downloaded the Development Build and the increased planet sizes look much better.

Tada :)
