Re: Unitscan how much % from real fleetsize
Note that the distortion factor is the same for all ships in a scan, so it won't be +8% for one ship and -7% for another. If the distortion factor is an issue, you can do a few in a row and manually take the average for a better estimate.
Alternatively, take advantage of the fact that most people buy their ships in round numbers. If you see 19372 Harpies and 9686 Phoenix, it's probably actually 20000 Harpy and 10000 Phoenix, especially if that means other ship numbers also come out to round(ish) numbers.
And finally, you can use the Universe -> Combat Reports page to help fill out the picture.
The outraged poets threw sticks and rocks over the side of the bridge. They were all missing Mary and he felt a contented smug feeling wash over him. He would have given them a coy little wave if the roof hadn't collapsed just then. Mary then found himself in the middle of an understandably shocked family's kitchen table. So he gave them the coy little wave and realized it probably would have been more effective if he hadn't been lying on their turkey.
