-===== Stations & Structures =====+===== Ships and Stations =====
  
-**NOTE!!** +Ships and stations share a common scale.
- +
-The following values are for **the OLD station scale**! The current scale for stations is:+
  
    Size(pixels) = 5 * size(meters)^(0.68)    Size(pixels) = 5 * size(meters)^(0.68)
    Size(meters) = [size(pixels)/5]^(1/0.68)    Size(meters) = [size(pixels)/5]^(1/0.68)
  
-The other values listed here are **for older graphics** that have not been updated. 
- 
-This scale should be used for stations and other immobile structures that the player docks with. 
- 
-The size of a image representing a station is equal to: 
- 
-  Size(pixels) = 250 * Size(km)^(0.5)
