Is is possible to make the graphics bigger? I know this sounds silly, but i remember a setting for zoom rate, set to 3 or 4 or 5 on somethings, ships. I don't know about planets, but i thought is would be cool to see if the zoom rate would make the ships appear larger at the closer zoom? And if that works, and im not entirely sure it will, but its a place to start, then maybe it will work with planets, or changing the size in the editor?
Anyway, im just trying to get a little more epic, you know? Largeness and vast open spaces do that.
