    Default Estimating ship sizes

    Hey guys might not be the right place for this but how do you work out how big a space ship needs to be I ask this because I have been working on a scfi world for several years now and have written a number of wiki style articles detailing the military capacity’s and crew compliments of most ships in the military of this universe however I find it very hard to work out how big they are I know off course this largely depends on how much of a ship is needed for engines

    But assuming engines and the like only make say a 1/3 of the mass how would I go about creating a formula that will tell me the rough size of a ship with say 30 or 500 or 2000 crew?

    once done found deck plans for there 40 odd ship types will not be far off
