So I have included more "moons" than planet tokens, although I have included planet tokens because I know people would want them... where I'd not too keen on planet tokens. I'd rather have a planet as past of the background that a space battle is happening in the sky above.


    That is what gets me too... the scale to use. On one hand I want people to be able to use capital ships, but then the scale for capital ships would make Fighters tiny little dots. But if you make the fighters large, the capital ships become giants and unplayable (as far as pixels on a screen).
    Why are you worried about scale? After all, if a moon was a full hex object even a capital ship would be a speck. People are used to size simplifications. A person doesn’t take a 5 ft square nor does an ogre take a 10 foot square. Those are abstractions to deal with simulations.

    Because... I'm fussy! :P

    Fighters and capital ships being the same size, even if the dynamics are abstract, is still... weird.

    Yeah... this is true, but it just is odd looking to me. Meh? \_(ツ)_/
