The Comet is a ship from a cartoon series, and I do not claim any credit for its design. Captain Future was created by Toei Animations in the 1970s.

This version of the Comet was simply built to fit into the game of Oolite. As you may notice, there isn't any size info on this ship. It's because the Comet has so many moving sections, that I had to build several models, with one as the central body, under which I made the rest of the model sections into Subentities in the Shipdata.plist.

Sometime I'll see if I can arrange the whole ship in Blender, and get a reading on the measurements. It was fun to build, and I hope it's equally fun to have in your Ooniverse.

From Mandoman's thread: In the cartoon, the ship has multiple moving parts, so I made a plethora of subentities that can be manipulated by anyone with the Scripting capabilities that it will require. I am not one of those people, so this version of the Comet has nothing moving. It has forward, and aft lasers, a scoop, and a missile launcher, all for the purpose of the game Oolite. It's a different design, for sure, and I'm not sure I did it justice, but it does look cool in the game.
