That's because they were way out of scale. I'm pretty sure when I made some touchups while doing UPS I made more screen accurate sizes.

I haven't heard any plans like that. My take is that 90% of players would be seriously miffed if they had to return to drydock every time they needed a repair.

While i agree there is something cool about it, the realities of the type of game we have mean that really doesn't fly for most people.

I've tried to convince people it would be good to move the Fed Shipyard to Utopia Planitia, and no one's buying that either.

Admittedly, I'm not a programmer. Perhaps it's doable in some way, but I have been working here for 7 years, and have never seen this done. To my knowledge, there is no way to display different entities to different players as the game stands today. Also, I like the spot to show off our ships.
