I was wondering, how tall was the Citadel? Were we ever told an estimate of some sort?

How tall would it be compared to The Empire State Building or Sears tower?

Were we ever told this?

I think someone did an experiment where the noclipped to the top and jumped off while recording their freefall time...don't remember which forum that was. I think it was this one. Hmmmm, I don't think anyone knows for sure, its definitely above the clouds...

well the noclip version of the citadel was considerably smaller than the actual version in the background.

Hmm... I have no idea for sure, but I'll take a wild guess that it's a mile high? That's probably to high, but the combine were crazy and it looked high, so you never know lol.

True, but I think thats the only time we ever got an estimate.....it would still be inaccurate since it IS a game. Hmmm, I don't think there are any given measurements.

That's easy to calculate. Here's what you do:
Go to a map where the Citadel is in full view, from top to bottom, in the skybox.
Noclip to said skybox.
Drop from the top to the bottom and time it exactly.

Citadel height: 16*(4.9t^2). t is Time in seconds.

That's in meters, by the way.

Exactly, I remember someone did that.
