What's bigger Star Forge or Death Star

Recommended Posts

Wich one is bigger the Star Forge or the Death Star? :blink:  I think the they are about the same.

are you meaning in overall size? or what?

 

in size I would say the death star is the bigger of the two because it was suppost to be the size of a small moon.

The Death Star was bigger overall. That thing was supposed to be the size of a small moon, and it surely looks like it. The Star Forge looked smaller, though it made up for that in the "excess mass" department with it's side-mounted "legs".

I never thought of that really but I guess you could be right on the fact of them being the same size. I just kinda figured that because it was mentioned that the death star was "the size of a small moon" that it would be the bigger of the two, But when I think of it, in the cut scene before you crash on the surface of the unknown world it looks to be almost the same size as the star below it so who knows maybe the star forge is the bigger.

That is a classic case of 'artistic license'. The Star Forge only appears to be the same size as the sun. That is for our benefit as a viewer not for accurate scale.

No, the Star Forge is not the same size of a sun. You can tell it so when the camera pans from the sun to the Star Forge in a cutscene.

I think it's way bigger then the death star. In the cuscene u can see it in comparison to a star, though a tiny speck in comparison, the fact that u can see it at such range in comparison to a star means it is massive. I think they weren't all too conscerned with scale while making the cutscenes though, the size seems to change with each cutscene. Though I'm going with the one where it is compared to a star.

Speaking of which, wouldn't building a factory right over a star just get you lots of melted ships? :rolleyes:


I made this half-pony half-monkey monster to please you

But I get the feeling that you don't like it

What's with all the screaming?

You like monkeys, you like ponies

Maybe you don't like monsters so much

Maybe I used too many monkeys

Isn't it enough to know that I ruined a pony making a gift for you?

Yep, the Death Star was "the size of a small moon"

 

For the people that are saying that the are the same size you guys might need your eyes checked or something.

 

As you can clearly see the Star forge is extreamly larger, (unless the Ratakan sun was a dwarf star) Planets are by no means as large as a star, not to mention "small moon"

 

This assumution is using planatey scale..........

Yep. 'The Force.' Full title: 'The Force which allows us to explain away plot implausibilities.'

 

A full-scale battle taking place that close to a star would be rather inconclusive since both sides would be vaporized in seconds.

The Star Forge is clearly bigger then the Death Star. The Death Star is, as stated by others, the size of a small moon. As stated by others the Star Forge is visible near a sun, which would mean it is massive almost being the size of a planet. Plus the Death Star did not posses the ability to produce massive fleets, and I question if it had the ability to house as many massive warships as the Star Forge. The SF seemed quite capable of housing hundreds if not thousands of super sized warships.

the darn thing that every one calls a "star" I think its the power of the dark side or some thing if you didn't notice the fire like stuff went in side the star forge... and malak (sp?) said it feeds on the dark side.

 

 

 

you can see the death star from the grond of endor.So i think the death star is bigger.

That's a star and you can't "see" the force....only feel it's power..... You really need to replay the game an pay attation to the story..........

 

This is for all the special pepole out there

 

The Star Forge was an enormous space-station/factory that harnessed the power of an entire star. Within its hull was a vast, intricate network of automated machines designed to mass-produce weaponry, droids, and starships. However, it was more than merely a metal construct. Its shadowed cavities were infused with the dark side of Force, endowing it with evil, breathing life.

that source didnt work and if you look at the dialog do the find option you wont find the word "star" any where(about this topic). I didnt see the sf any were on the panet. I "think" the ds is biger, and i beat the game at least 3 times :p ... and www.starwars.com is known to add more stuff than in the game. Which might be true or might not.

A small moon could not be seen in comparison to a star, whereas the star forge can be seen. The energy u see entering at the bottom is (coming to that energy sphere which is brightly seen in comparison to the star, this orb or whatever one would call it is small in comparison to teh star forge) actualy stellar matter/energy which is being absorbed to produce ships, it is outside the corona of the star and apears to have sheilding, as do the ships, which likely prevent them from damage that would be caused by being so close to the corona of the star.

I think the designers of the game weren't concerned with scale enough, the ship sizes change constantly. As for the death star being visible from endor, thats because it was directly above it, ofcourse they could see it, the star forge however is orbiting the Star, which is WAY further away then the death star was from endor. And the star forge is still visible from that distance

Good point. I was thinking of the Star Forge in relation to the opposing battleships fighting in front of it at the end scenes, in which the Star Forge looks sort of the same scale as the second Death Star in the space battle scenes in Return of the Jedi. I'd forgotten about what it looked like on first arrival into the system.

 

The Star Forge appears to be closer to the size of a planet. Blimey. :)

You can see the Star Forge from the ground of the unknown world.

 

I don't recall doing that in KotOR, were was it most apparent?
