  1. You deserve it !! (And a PC to be able to play the game...)
  2. Will you ever stop learning us things one day ? Thanks so much !
  3. Up to the devs to decide, isn't it ? Current time frame is... etc. (you know the following words ) Besides, is design/building date that important for traders when it comes to so lovely design ? I love those ships !!! They can even give them a small speed buff in OW. I wouldn't snitch.
  4. +1. There has already been a thread about those ships : http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/6819-descubierta-spanish-corvette-with-plans/ It'd be great if you added your plans there. I also created a thread about exploration ships and wrote a post on them : http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/7768-exploration-and-survey-ships/ Feel free to contribute if you have other plans of Spanish exploration ships.
  5. Descubierta and her sistership Atrevida 16 to 26-gun Spanish Corvettes 1789 http://carlosparrillapenagos.es/pintura-naval/ Their voyage The twin Corvettes Descubierta and Atrevida took part of the Malaspina's expedition that was the most important voyage of discovery dispatched by Spain in the 18th century. It had two primary goals, the first being to increase geographic and scientific knowledge in general, the second being to check on the status of Spain's vast empire, especially along the west coast of North America, where the Russians and the British were expanding
  6. La Favorite French Corvette 24 guns, 1829 http://mnm.webmuseo.com/ws/musee-national-marine/app/collection/record/9046 Her voyage of scientific exploration (1829-1832) The expedition passed the Cape of Good Hope, stopping at Pondicherry and Madras, and then exploring the coast of Cochinchina and Tonkin, stopping in the Philippines, Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand.

Captain : Cyrille Pierre Théodore Laplace (1793-1875) Naturalist : Joseph Fortu
  7. L'Astrolabe French Formerly the horse stable barge La Coquille (1811), refitted as a corvette and renamed in 1825 in honor of the explorer La Pérouse and his ship L'Astrolabe. Stable Barge La lionne (1811), Sistership of La Coquille http://mnm.webmuseo.com/ws/musee-national-marine/app/collection/record/9022?vc=ePkH4LF7lVddbtswDL6KsQvsDFnbYRsWrCjWvRaKzCQcZEkTpSy9_T7KsuImfdlDUfITTVH8z-14-vA_WfHx1jEr5_eiKDwOE41shjH89S6YUZWpNd8RNojZI20p0eDLRCl89adG3VMMudGfmLzygyk5EdqSgqKBtxwdewId0GhB3G8_Dz5M6HyutnbMjZEAsDeZg0fxjXR-WUMymBjJufX5CoFqEj7Msr-g0NiupOPSDjKrfTAgw5LL8UBeaNLOf0ihREjYRE37rKvyVNLCkw
  8. La Boudeuse ("The female Sulky") 1766 French 1st-class frigate ("frégate de 12") 26 then 32 guns (12-lb) Her plans, unique, have been lost. All we know of her is : - that he was small for a 12-lb frigate, e. g. the Belle Poule (1765), but slightly bigger than an average 8-lb one : 40,60 m x 10,50 m x 5,35 (?) m. 550 t. 960 gross, - during the first attempt with full cargo holds, a gusting wind broke a mast. Back on shore, fearing for the structural integrity and the balance of his ship, explorer Bougainville asked to shorten the masts and to have her armament of 26 guns (14 12
  9. Interesting post. However, I'm not very fond of Thread Titles in the Shipyard beginning by "My Favorite..." or "Poster's Name Plans". What about setting up a more neutral and useful convention for plan thread titles like this : "Nation - Ship class - Time Period" ? Ex : "Danish Brigs (1700-1750)" It'd be easier to navigate in the Shipyard Forum, wouldn't it ? And contributions from various posters could be easily added. Edit : - in case of nations with only few known plans, we could have only one thread : "Venetian Ships (18th century)". - in case of a thematic thread with
  10. C'est de l'humour de développeur qui est tombé à plat avec toi....
  11. Magnifique maquette ! Un navire très différent du cotre du jeu. Beaucoup en rondeur, une coque très "bombée".
  12. Il y a une différence entre le Renard et le Cotre du jeu au niveau de la découpe des sabords (en demi-cercles sur celui du jeu). Je n'ai trouvé que cette photo sur le net pour illustrer. Niveau design, je ne suis pas fan. Je préfèrerais une découpe carrée plus "classique" si on peut dire, comme sur le Renard :
  13. Avis à Lestan et à tous ceux qui grattent du papier : Concours d'écriture Ecrire, avant le 12 mars 2016, une nouvelle de 2 pages sur "l’aventure de Monsieur le marquis de la Fayette embarqué à bord de l’Hermione et son arrivée aux Etats Unis." Toutes les infos bientôt sur le site, j'imagine : http://www.la-mer-en-livres.fr
  14. Hull shapes of Corvettes in the French Navy (18th to 19th century) Translation of a post by French Surcouf with his authorization : http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/7645-les-corvettes/?p=144903 All credit goes to him. (Forgive me any approximation in translation) Terminology Tumblehome ("frégatage" in french) : the narrowing of a ship's hull with greater distance above the water-line. The hull is said to be "straight" (with "straight sides") when there's neither tumblehome nor flare. "V-Shaped" is a m
  15. Drawings of Corvette Figureheads Proposals by P. Ozanne, French naval artist and engineer Published in 1798 in Ornements pour des proues de navires. It shows an overflowing imagination. These ornaments mix Animals, marine and mythological Creatures. His proposals have never been used... http://bibliotheque-numerique.inha.fr/collection/15988-ornements-pour-des-proues-de-navires/

A special Thanks to Brigand and Henry d'Esterre Darby !
  17. Sympa le reportage ! Tu sais si on a conservé les plans du Renard ou si la réplique a été fait à partir de plans standards de côtres ?
  18. C'est liquide . J'avoue que j'ai décroché et que j'ai pas l'esprit / le temps de rentrer dedans. Donc je vais te faire confiance. Tu as l'air de bien maitriser Il te reste plus qu'à nous pondre une petite formule pour répondre à :
  19. Pour le coulage : Pour qu'un navire coule, je suppose que la cale n'a pas à être complètement submergée et que c'est vraiment le poids de l'eau qui compte. Il ya un seuil à partir duquel : Poids de l'artillerie, des mats, du matériel à bord, du stock pour 6 mois, de l'équipage et de tout ce qu'on met sur un navire + Poids de l'eau entrée dans la cale > Poids que peut supporter la coque en flottaison. Donc pour chaque navire, il faut faire la liste des éléments qui pèse et leur poids. Et la qualité de flottaison (poids qu'un navire peut supporter sans couler) doit varier selon le navi
