The Solar System to Scale View Mod
Screenshot The introduction begins like this: "Space," it says, "is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly hugely mindboggingly big it is.
~ Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (1979)


MOD DESCRIPTION:
----------------
A micro adventure that takes you into our solar system either the Sun, planets and moons and the distances between them to scale or the Sun, planets and moons to scale but the distances between vastly reduced to match the Transcendence pixel to light seconds scale.

I created this mod mostly to satisfy my own curiosity about the distances and scale in our solar system. It is one thing to read that Saturn is 1,433,449,370 km (890,745,438.518 miles) away from the sun, it is a whole different experience crossing the distance in your Wolfen-class gunship.

The everything to scale mod has 1 pixel = 434.275 km (this completely replaces the 1 pixel is 12,500 km rule, so the units show by your targeting scanner are off by a factor of ~28.8)

The not-to-scale model uses the transcendence pixel to light-second scale for distances (so your the distances shown by your targeting scanner are correct) while object sizes (including the sun) use 1 pixel = 434.275 km (just as the everything to scale model)
