Does anyone out there know how to re-size the model of a ship.:confused: I want my Borg Cube and Tactical Cube to be the same size but they are very different. Any advice or info on what program i need and what files to modify would be helpfull. :)
These two are the same size: CR Borg Cube, Bridge Commander Downloads, Bridge Commander Borg CR Borg Tactical Cube, Bridge Commander Downloads, Bridge Commander Borg -CR
are you making your own or was it just a preference thing?
it's just to make the sizes of the ships i have downloaded to be a little more cannon
Well if you want canon. tactical cube = 1k meters wide cube = 3k meters wide
actually there are 3 types of cubes. the "Regular" Cube that you see in most episodes of Voyager, the one in The Best of Both Worlds and in Q Who is 1500m x 1500m x 1500m the Tactical Cube as seen in Unimatrix Zero is the same size. 1500m x 1500m x 1500m the cube in First contact is called an Assimilation Cube (referred to as a Fusion Cube in ST Armada 2). it holds a sphere inside of it and is 3000m x 3000m x 3000m however this does not answer my question: how do you re-size a model?:confused:
do you use milkshape or 3dmax? those are two programs used to alter models.

It's a stripped down version of 3Ds Max 4, that does not allow you to render images like the full versions do. However it is free and works just fine for scaling models or just about anything else you would like to do in the production or editing of a model for BC. I use milkshape to scale models myself, just because of the simplicity of importing in NIF format and merging another model for comparison. The model I use most for scaling standard sized ships, is the Constitution II at 305m. Btw, milkshape is also free, for a 30 day evaluation and then 30.00 to buy.
I didn't make it!
Well Hi there MScott. I was wondering how do you actually tell in milkshape (which I also use) Ship A is 305m and Ship B is 453m? How do you do scale with a comparison model? Could you giv me a s,all Tutorial (an actuall exsample would be cool). Thanks for any help in advance
