  1. @Thonys I would like to join the GWC but cant find anything on the forums. Could you point me in the right direction to apply for that clan?
  2. I would like to join. I would prefer a Dutch clan but cant find any active ones. Do you know of any? If not, can I join this clan?
  3. Dont tell me I have to do the tutorial on both! Do you? @Aster
  4. @Angus MacDuff @Draymoor @Barbancourt @Macjimm Thanks for the replies! You convinced me to buy it. I LOVE naval/sailing games, and there are not a whole lot out there. See you around.
  5. So, Naval Action is on sale on steam. Who would recommend me buying this game? Or should I wait for the release?
  6. I dont know if this is the right place to react to your statement. But i do agree with you. It all comes down to them being the worlds super power from ~1800 to ~1945. You see the same thing happening with the United states Army and Navy, they are seen as military gods and the Russians are still regarded as mostly outdated in equipment, skill and docterine. The equivelant of the British vs French in the napoleonic era. Statements made back then, influenced by nationalism and the war effort, are still influencing us today. That is why it is very important to set aside nationalism when judging history and do some decent research on both side of the argument. And that is coming from a Dutchman :P. btw i am not saying that the british or american army and navy were/are bad.
  7. @Malachi I already had a hard time wrapping my head around feet and inches. Thats something I never, really never, use. Got the basic shape done, thats it for me for this week, will do some more on monday.
  8. @Malachi That helped a lot, the lines now fit the plan. I still do have other distances then your example between the lines but the total is 116'9 so thats good right?
  9. @Malachi So I started yesterday with modeling, I followed your tutorial on preparing the plan. But I then just used the files you provided as the safest route. Got a question though, I am not sure what is happening so i attached a picture to make it clear.
  10. @Malachi That is one interesting and beautifull hull shape. I really like this one.
  11. @Malachi, I have to say that i like the snow-brig a lot. I think that one has my preference. I have been a bit busy the last couple of weeks so i have not been able to search the internet for plans. I will try to find some this week. But we shouldnt wait too long to start this awesome project.
  12. Did some modeling and even some sculpting today to see if my knowledge and abilities are still fine. So shall we start soon? https://skfb.ly/6uGoH
  13. Also, if someone has an especially good plan for a ship but no time or experience to join us you can drop it in here. I think thats fine. What do you think @Malachi?
  14. I found 2 plans on the "Nationaal archief" that i liked and fit the requirements set by @Malachi . Checked the plans for disortions by following the first part of this tutorial but they are both pretty distorted. I am fine with choosing a suggested plan by someone else. I do not really like the shape of the Heldin but i do like the Danish Triton. Lets see if there are more plan suggestions coming in.
  15. Indeed, i like this idea very much. However just as @LeBoiteux i havent done any 3D modeling in a year. I think i am able to do this though. Also this is an opportunity that i cant let slip, so i will join you! I was started modelling the "Windhond" but because of the lack of time and knowledge i stopped the project. Maybe this is a good ship plan? Nationaal Archief "Windhond"
  16. @Malachi: How are you doing? I am looking forward to more off this tutorial. Are you planning to proceed?
  17. Go for the La Panthère, i think she is beautifull and i want to see it
  18. I agree, i should really model something i like. But for the sake of learning... The Triton looks better, i like it more. What do you think of the Windhond? It's a 24 gun Dutch frigate. Is that a smart choice?
  19. It is not really my kind of ship, but i think its a nice start. Can probably learn a lot from modeling this one. If you can send me the plans, that would be nice.
  20. I am looking, at this moment, at different ship plans. It doesnt have to be dutch . I like ships from the smaller(lesser presented) naval nations like Danish, Swedish or Dutch. You make me curious, what are the plans you have in mind?
  21. That should be the reason why i got stuck, i do remember some small trouble overall. What would you advice, try to restart building this ship or choose another one? And do you have some recommendations instead of the Frederika?
  22. The "Frederika Louise Wilhelmina" a 36 gun frigate. Link: http://i.imgur.com/gPn8FDf.png Ps. I have done some modeling in the past, but i never modelled ships. So i choose this one because i like it and isnt as complex as the older ships.
  23. It started probably at the plan preparation and that caused problems while modeling. The part you call "L'Estain" caused a lot of problems in my head . As you already said, this part looks very easy if you look at it form a certain angle, but it is actually a very complex shape. And as i am a perfectionist i want to have a clear picture of everything in my head. I hope this part is easier than it looked back then and maybe this tutorial will help me figure it out. I prefer earlier ships because i really like those work of arts of the earlier times. I really like ships like Adolph Friedric(Swedish 24 gun Merchant), L'Ambitieux(French 80 gun). But i think, after looking at your selection, you are more drawn toward the later ships. Am i right?
  24. This is AMAZING! I started building a 3d model for this game but got stuck and abandoned the whole project. You are an inspiration to start modeling a ship again. Thank you!
  25. Of course there were some developments, but it didnt change much(surprisingly) during these 200 years. Especially the Dutch kept building their ships very traditionaly.
