Alpha Orbital is primarily an info site covering the news around Elite: Dangerous, EvE Online, X universe and their future updates. Along with fresh info about the games, you can also find a full showcase of ships currently available with the appropriate info displayed.
Also, the Ship Comparison Tool enables you to compare various stats of any ship ingame varying from small to extra large sizes. I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped by submitting the data needed and giving their screenshots for the SCT, especially Sparky Corp, Earth Ultimatum IV, Aken_Bosch, and awesome people at Egosoft without whom this whole thing wouldn't be possible.
Have in mind that keeping track of so many stats can get a bit messy... So, if you run across any site errors, wrong stats, images, or data in general - please, let me know either via e-mail or through Steam.
The general idea behind Alpha Orbital originated somewhere in December 2015. When you're a gamer that has some spare time, and you like to keep yourself busy with web development - your mind tends to come up with some pretty random ideas.
One of which was a simple ship comparison tool that I did a while back for Elite: Dangerous (the original SCT didn't contain ship showcases), so the logical step would be to take everything I learned from that project and crank it up a notch. :)
After a few initial conversations with some X players on Steam, it turned out that there were no real info sites for X: Rebirth that were up to date. With even the official site having limited info on the game, Alpha Orbital started to form...
