Notes (2021)[edit]

T5.09 includes sizes for Giant planets that stretch from L (20,000 miles) to X including both 'S' and 'R' used for other codes in previous versions without defining a code that replaces the meanings of 'S' and 'R' as used in this wiki.[1]

Similarly the extension of size codes beyond 12 ('C') mean that the meaning of 'D' as defined in this wiki is also now duplicated. BackworldTraveller (talk) 09:51, 24 April 2021 (EDT)

1 Small 800-2399 1,000 to 1,999km Small World
2 Small (e.g. Luna) 2,400-3,999 2,000 to 3,999km Small World
3 Small (e.g. Mercury) 4,000-5,599 4,000 to 5,999km Meso World
4 Small (e.g. Mars) 5,600-7,199 4,000 to 5,999km Meso World

9 Large 13,600-15,199 14,000 to 15,999km Big World
A Large 15,200-16,799 16,000 to 17,999km Big World
B Huge 16,800+ 18,000km+ Big World
SGG Small Gas Giant (no futher codes) 40,000-119,999 40,000 to 119,999km Gas Giant
LGG Large Gas Giant (no further codes) 120,000-240,000+ 120,000km+ Gas Giant
  • Note that the size code D ( Debris ) is non-standard. It is included to cover such cases as Comet Mid-Rift (Deneb 3234), which are less than 200Km, but not part of an asteroid belt, yet important enough to have mention.
