Very cool... Not sure about the scale difference, not sure how I feel about that.

If you want scale to be more accurate, grab a beach ball and paint that up hehe!

Scale differences doesn't really bother  me personally.  KH had scale problems, but they admit they errred on the side of playability rather than realism.  Despite a hard-science bent... not a single planet was more than a single 10,000km hex.

Dont forget this site too:

there was also a tutorial for a gas giant that I couldn't locate.
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!
