Actual size unit

Does actual size refer to radius, diameter or something different? And is there a scale to real life (like 1 kerbal meter = 2 real meter) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kamikaze (talkcontribs) 14:53, 28 April 2014‎ (UTC)

I'm not a modder, but as far as I know, all parts were increased in size by 25% when EVA or IVA were added, because previously the parts would've been to small. So as I understand it, when you create a part and it has a size of one meter (however this is measured) it is actually 25% bigger ingame. I'm not sure if it is possible to determine the unit of size in the game. For example you can determine that the thrust is given in kilonewton, because somewhere the mass is shown as in tonnes and the velocity is in meters per second and then math(s) gives you the value in kilonewton.
Oh and I noticed, this is already described in the page. — xZise [talk] 10:33, 28 April 2014 (CDT)


Where do the size names “Tiny, Small, Large, and Extra Large” come from? We have something of a gap in this system. --Brendan (talk) 01:53, 22 July 2014 (CDT)
