Ok, so in the design screen, you can set the scale of the ship image as a scale of the default based on design.
However, I want something that works like this:
For all escorts, min scale is 0.75, max scale is 1.5. Then when you make them different sizes in terms of components, the game figures out the proper scaling based on the min and max numbers. So based on this, frigates could have a min scale of 1 and a max scale of 2.25 or something and so on and so forth. This leads to ship types that are different sizes based on the class.
This would mostly be a "taste" thing that helps differentiate between frigates, destroyers, cruisers, blah blah in terms of aesthetics.
Is there some way to do that now? If not, is this possible for future patches?
