First off, GSB is my new favorite game. After visiting the forums I have decided to give making my own ships a try.
I’ve read and understand how to use Paint.net to get an image of a ship into the game, the only thing I’m worried about is the size of the ships.
From what I understand, the ship image has to be 512x512 in size. How do you determine how large a ship appears in-game? Are fighters really only 20x20 pixels, for example?
What confuses me is that would mean 512x512 is the largest a ship can be, but I’ve seen some pictures of friggin huge ships in-game.
So basically, how do you determine scale, and if you somehow get a ship bigger than 512x512, how does it fit into the ship loadout screen?
Thanks for any help.
