Block Size.
First off, sorry if this has been answered before.
I'm trying to figure out what the size of the small/large blocks are in game by feet and or meters does anyone know for sure?

Large block is 2.5 meter
Small block is 0.5 meter

Astronaut/enginneer is about 1.85m... or 1.8m

thanks so much Marek!

medium scale at 1.5 for med size ships would be nice :D

also how big are station blocks?

Identical to Large Ship, just static in the world (can't be moved)

I spent some time messing with the gravity generator while building my ship and I confirmed that each block is about 1.5 meters because at 45 meters it extends out 30 so, using a calculator, I did 45/30 using unit rates so that I got that each block measures 1.5 meters.

Personally, I would accept that the lead developer himself would know the dimensions of his own blocks and question my own methodology :P

But orphans was working on this project for FIVE MONTHS.

That's got to give them some credibility. Or they're just a necro. :RogueChallenge:

Extending on this, The block sizes in Feet are as follows:

Large: 8.2021ft
Small: 1.6404ft

Going off of gravity generators adn sensors... large ship blocks appear to be ~5 meters. With the gravity generator set to 5x5x5 meters in the middle of a 5x5 platform made from large blocks, gravity takes effect 1/2 way through the first block on the platform. So if you think about gravity being produced from the exact center of the gravity block that would account for 2.5 meters from the middle gravity block and 2.5 meters from the blocks surrounding. With the gravity set to 7.5 the gravity field begins at the outside edge of the blocks surrounding the gravity generator... which would be 2.5 meters once again for the gravity block and 5 meters for the large blocks surrounding. Idk about you but 7.5 - 2.5 = 5 meters. Either the system of length used for grav blocks and sensors is wrong, or these blocks are 5 meters long.

The height/width/depth settings of the gravity generator are reflective of total field size, not distance from generator. So, a gravity generator with a field width of 5m will extend 2.5m to the left and right of the generator.
