Too Long; Didn't Read: Hey, the edge length of a small block is 0.5 meters. Several ancient Cubits were around that length. Interesting coincidence. --- Something just occurred to me. Several ancient measurement systems had units of length based on the length of a man's forearm. For the sake of discussion, I'll refer to all of these as a "cubit", though different cultures had different names AND lengths for the cubit. According to Wikipedia, the cubit could be anywhere from 443.8 millimeters to 529.2 millimeters depending on whose Cubit you were using. What does this have to do with Space Engineers? Well, when building ships, we're always dealing in multiples of either 2.5 meters (for large blocks) or 0.5 meters (for small blocks). To say that a construct is 25 blocks long by 13 blocks wide by 10 blocks high is insufficient unless I also specify the grid size, either large or small. So, this construct is either twelve-point-five by six-point-five by five meters, or it's sixty-two-point-five by thirty-two-point-five by twenty-five meters. That's a lot of "point-fives" floating about. ...or "and-a-halves", whichever you prefer. 0.5 meters falls neatly into the range of lengths for ancient cubits, so it *might* make sense to define the Space Engineers Cubit as being exactly 500 millimeters, so the above example is either twenty-five by thirteen by ten cubits, or one-hundred-twenty-five by sixty-five by fifty cubits, depending on the grid size. It would also help avoid confusion when talking about block types that exist in both large and small variants for both large and small grids. So, Reactors exist in 4 diameters: The 1-Cubit Reactor (Smallblock Small Reactor) The 3-Cubit Reactor (Smallblock Large Reactor) The 5-Cubit Reactor (Largeblock Small Reactor) The 15-Cubit Reactor (Largeblock Large Reactor) Similarly for Thrusters, if we talk about the length of the Thruster: The 2-Cubit Thruster (Smallblock Small Thruster) The 4-Cubit Thruster (Smallblock Large Thruster) The 10-Cubit Thruster (Largeblock Small Thruster) The 20-Cubit Thruster (Largeblock Large Thruster) Now, I don't expect Cubits to replace Meters in all contexts (nor do I advise such a change, even if we could overcome institutional/cultural inertia), but when talking about different sizes of block types and comparing the sizes of small ships to large ships or stations (for example, in talking about the difficulty of squeezing a 14-by-14 cubit ship through a 15-by-15 cubit hole for a docking bay), it would avoid a lot of cumbersome "-point-fives" and "-and-a-halves" all over the place. For all other applications, such as positions, velocities, and accelerations, I still like meters. Meters are awesome. But anyway, just a thought.
