I had been working off the name "Python" and also the dimensions listed in wiki pages (which unfortunately do not include mass figures).
For future reference what is the best way to find a ships mass?
Ship mass is calculated by the core from the model volume. If I need a mass then I search for the ship in F4/Gallery of all objects.

Thanks for the info Norby - much appreciated.
Installing Gallery has proven a great addition to identify ship mass details.
Can't believe how big the Python Class Cruiser is (thought it was error at first when the Python CC came in at 939.012t :shock: )

I have a question on the Escort Pack.
Is there a way to add the Ace Night Adder to the pack?
It is really nice looking ship that would look great in the pack. I'd personally love to have that style of ship running on my escort deck. lol

You can add any ships into your deck which fit into the size and mass limits, not only the ones in Escort Pack.
To catch one in deep space and make it to usable derelict is a rare but always possible way.
Alternatively the Hyperspace Hangar can help to buy one if you see it in a shipyard. Put it to the hangar then add it to the deck in EscortDeck interface screen.

I guess what you would like is the easy way to get one from the equipment shop. This is possible if the maintainer of Night Adder (phkb?) insert the next codes into that pack.
shipdata.plist:
Code:
"escortdeck-nightadder" = {
                like_ship = "night_adder_player";
                accuracy = 7;
                ai_type = "EscortDeck_AI.plist";
                auto_ai = 0;
                beacon = "E";
                counts_as_kill = no;
                extra_cargo = 0;
                forward_weapon_type = "WEAPON_BEAM_LASER";
                fuel = 70;
                has_fuel_injection = 1;
                has_shield_booster = 0;
                has_shield_enhancer = 0;
                hyperspace_motor = no;
                max_cargo = 0;
                model = "night_adder.dat"; //must specify model for Oolite 1.81
                name = "Night Adder Escort";
                roles = "escortdeck-nightadder player";//the player role is needed by Carriers OXP
                script_info = {
                        buydesc = "This ship fit into the very small landing pads on the sides of Escort Deck.";
                        ccl_missionShip = true; //need to avoid changes by ShipVersion OXP
                };
                unpiloted = no;
}
equipment.plist:
Code:
        (
                0,
                1200000,
                "Night Adder Escort",
                "EQ_ESCORTDECK_nightadder",
                "This ship fit into the very small landing pads on the sides of Escort Deck. This special design hold a Beam Laser and has Injectors but no cargo space nor hyperdrive.",
                {
                        "available_to_all" = yes;
                        "condition_script" = "escortdeck_condition_minipirate.js";
                }
        ),
script.js:
Code:
"use strict";
this.name = "nightadder";
this.startUp = function() {
        var w = worldScripts.escortdeck;
        if(w) {
                if(!w.$EscortDeckEqs) w.$EscortDeckEqs = []; //buyable escort ship sizes and masses
                //must fill this array for condition check of equipment
                w.$EscortDeckEqs["EQ_ESCORTDECK_nightadder"] = [28.0, 8.0, 27.0, 4952];
        }
}
Well, it would be too easy to get this ship everywhere so I excluced the main stations in the above code.
You should look after in other stations, just keep in mind that some like Rock Hermits ask very high prices, like 4 times more or so than in standard stations.

Thank you so much. Actually now that I know I can buy it and add it to my deck as an escort through the Hyperspace Hanger it opens up a world of customizing for me. Thank you so much for that simple tip. :)
The more I learn the more I enjoy the hell out of this game. :)
