What ships would you like to see from POTBS?


Recommended Posts

The one you posted, from the movie, has little to nothing in common with the real one.  The real one was a small frigate/corvette when launched in the early 1700's.  By the time Teach captured her she had been converted to a slave trader by the French.

This is absolutely not the Concorde but the Mercue, merchant ship.

Here is a drawing of Concord, frigate 26-gun of 12-pdr. Hermione is a sister ship of the Concorde.

I beg of you on hands and feet,please add the Centurion.That ship was pornographicaly amazing.It represented all that was good and right with the third rate.I was a frequent player on POTBS before it changed hands to Portalus and I had a Centurion.Burned hours and money for that ship.Lost it in a Lost Port Battle.So if this ship was indeed added into the game I would be able to have my dream baby again(The Centurion)

Honest hearted appeal

would be a second 74gun next to the Bellona so it will be low priority since the goal is to fill out the gapes in the ship classes.

later maybe and most likely the dev will concentrated after finishing the current ships that are WiP on game features and improving the game performance so that they work on older hardware.

Sing Maartens Zeevaarders Syndicaat leader, if I recall correctly ;)

I recall making some music sample for Marion :)

Actually Michiel Duijer was our leader/guild master, but Marion was one of our top figures for sure!

Ah I miss the SMZS...

 

Personally, I have a bias towards the Van Hoorn snow, for some reason :) 

Though it might not end up being called that when it goes into this game...

Stralsund sure.  Xebec no, unless we have the Mediterranean in game.  They wouldn't survive trans-Atlantic voyages.  Junks no, unless we have Asia in the game.  Those ships would be very out of place in an XVIII Century/Napoleonic War themed game.

As far as I know I'm the only 3D model maker from the PotBS crowd that has shown up on this forum (I made La Belle and Cruizer from PotBS if you are wondering).

 

However, so far the Games-Labs Devs have only said that having 3rd party guys like me would be nice, but not yet.

 

So, I'm not sure if this will ever be something I could contribute to or not.  I say that as the replys like "not yet" could be a polite way of saying "no" as well.  You never really know.  So for now I'm just another player like everyone else.

1. Queen Anne's Revenge

 

 

2. Flying Dutchman (should be premium ship)

 

 

 

 

The Pirates of the Carribean "Flying Dutchman" is actually built using the plans for the real life ship, the Swedish Vasa.  Well, the Vasa and a bunch of movie fantasy bits and pieces all over it to make it look like some kind of sea monster ship that might be alive.

Vasa was actually a horrible design, capsizing and sinking in port.  Too many heavy guns, not enough buoyancy, tipped over and sank.  It's only claim to fame now is that it turns out it didn't rot away, and was raised in the 1960's and has a museum built over it now.

 

P.S.  The reason the replica didn't sink was that it is built on top of a self propelled steel river barge.  It isn't even an actual ship, just a hollow framework, no full masts, and smaller than it ought to be.

 

The only actual ship used in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies was the HMS "Interceptor" which is the Brig Lady Washington from Seattle.

and the HMS Rose in the 4th movie and in the second the Bounty replica as the trader that gets smashed by the Kraken.

the QAR wont come ingame since we allready have enough 12lb frigates (surprise and soon La belle Poule and the reworked Generic one).

infact L'Hermion is an update of the Concord class of that time.
