  1. Preferable a Dutch ship from before the Napoleonic occupation, as they all really started to look the same after that. Pretty but a lot like each other.
  2. Well, I'm biased towards the ship I have been working on of course (Leeuwenhorst / Edam). Happy to hand over all I have done so far.
  3. Looking nice so far. Watch out you don't use too many polys
  4. There's very little to find about the ship(s) unfortunately. When trying to search for it, I can only find that drawing in our national archive, and mentions of the ships in documentation/books from the Brits about Sir John Balchen encountering the Dutch who joined the British, telling that the ships carried 54 guns (probably not counting stern chasers), like here, here and here. Apparently Leeuwenhorst was commanded by Rear-Admiral Reynst, and Edam by captain Fransel/Frensel or Vice-Admiral Schryver (1744). Also found a Dutch book mentioning the same history.
  5. I haven't worked an awful lot on it since then, I'm afraid. Been distracted with other stuff, like a part-time job. And I feel a little uneasy on how I should model it (both because of little info about the bow and inner parts, and the how-to guidelines from the devs). Don't know if they would actually want to get this one in the game.
  6. It may be possible to be seen that way, but doesn't FEEL that way. And I'm not talking about automating it completely. So instead of pressing the A key until your ship is pointed into (roughly) the degree you wanted to go, you click the compass and watch the ship turn until it reaches that heading, while crew calls out the heading to you to confirm the order. Maybe same for sails: instead of pressing W a couple times until you reach full sail, you click one of the few options and an officer will call out the full sail order to the crew. Optionally the developers can give them keybindings that
  7. As a captain one is not holding the steering wheel and steering the ship him/herself. Instead one of the crew members is doing so. Depending on the size of the ship there may also be a navigator on board to give commands to the helmsman? In any way verbal orders are given. Why not represent this in the form of being able to click on the compass what direction you want to go to? Same style used in Silent Hunter 3 for instance (maybe also other games, but this one I know). There you steer the submarine either plotting a course on the map or clicking the compass for a course. An officer will call
  8. Ah, I did not know that. Thanks for the clarification. That explains indeed the reasons for doing so.
  9. To come back at the general issue here of a review that accumilated enough momentum to be in the top recommended ones, yet sprouts such an unpleasant amount of untruthfulness that it makes developers uneasy about its existance. However I think, as done here, the best reaction to it would be to kindfully respond with a link to your reply and keep it that way. Flagging it as "off-topic" or any other way only fuels the fire that which you attempt to extinguish. As shown in the comments of the respectful "review", if you can call it that, such actions only underline their suspicions of censorship
  10. That's because hardly anyone that has it uses it. Free basic cutter is easier alternative. Everyone who bought the game before and at the launch of Steam Early Access has one that can be redeemed at any time.
  11. Looking very interesting. Will this mean that crew (including sailors) will "level up"? Or gain veterancy? Comparable with how it was handled in NavyField 1?
  12. LOL @ that propaganda poster! Hillary-ous! Anyway, if one is interested in some more time appropriate insults get Shakespeare's Insults: It costs next to nothing and is filled with only insults from his work. It's about an inch thick.
  13. Looks flashy and impressive. Still sceptical about the end result
  14. Irrelevant to the current subject, but in that last picture neither of the cross sections looks like one of the La Belle Poule: And I couldn't find anything about a ship of the same name from 1827
