Blog Double post:
Recently worked out some stats for SH.
240 decks (Assuming standard size for each, which isn't the case so may end up being more like 220-230
I place blocks to a complex design (IE on angles etc) at 3-4 blocks a second, 180-240 blocks a minute, and blocks in a straight line at 8-10, 480-600 blocks a minute.
10,800 to 36,000 blocks an hour.
Each steel hull block weighes (About) 1.5 tonne, so 16,200 to 54,000 tonnes each hour.
Expected weight of the hull alone is expected to be over 2 million metric tonne. Expected ship weight is 4+ million metric tonne
Some techincal stats for those wondering how they are going to beat it.
12 reactor rooms (Including two mains)
3 Command rooms (COC, Bridge, Flag Control Room)
4 Life support rooms
4 Main computer cores (with another 2 backups)
4 Battery decks (for emergency power, or more reactors if batteries aren't added)
And a picture for those interested. Most of my workload is the outer frame, this is the most annoying thing to put together, but once it's all done and plated that's 35% of my work done right there.
