Seriously only this would bring some immersion and give an idea where stuff on the ship is. When you click the link you open a 3D room you can click Different numbers for sections on the ship which highlights and zooms in on the area and gives a short explanation what things are and where stuff is, e.g. pumps magazines etc.

We already have this ship model in-game and doing the interiors for all ships would be a gigantic time sink for the devs. Not going to happen.

i mean they wouldnt have to do the whole interior part in detail just highlighting where certain stuff are on the ship would do great work as all wargaming games have it and warframe have it.

So many great ships, not enough great 3d artists. Swedish ships really look very good. And thanks for the Rattlesnake hint.. lovely ship. Will put it on the list.

 

We actually worked with Axeonalias - creator of the LAurore and one of our frigates is based on that ship (it is not in game now) but you can see it on some old screens from last summer http://www.navalaction.com/blog/2013/7/21/summer-update  That frigate will come back soon (1-3 months). It needs  re optimizing for bigger battles. He also did Bellona for us (old version) but we wrecked it, and built a new one. As his version was too performance heavy and it was faster to make a new ship. 

 

We promised in the beginning of this year and we will make it happen. We plan to actively use community created content - we just need more time to finalize specs. With the onset of Unity 5 this could be further delayed, but not by much. 

 

it is basically the first frigate in game :) you can easily see the forms if you look closely. But it had to be reworked heavily as we were learning a lot then about how ships should be done and how rig should work and look.

Yeah i noticed :) some design that would show certain parts on the ship and a short explanation would be great for new and old players. Playing the game for soon 3 years i still cant really tell where the magazine on my ship is 😁

It's not the same place for all ships, but would be nice to have a 3D modle of each ship to tell you something like this. I know where a few are from trial and error in combat, but other than that I don't have a clue where some of the second mags are located on some of the SOL's.

Nice but the original decoration shown in the RL drawing by Jean Bérain is even nicer :

btw the 3D modeler gave the quarter galley only 5 windows instead of 6. He might have use the model made in 1839 as a template. 

Those 17th century ships are really nice indeed. Another one (well documented) is Le Saint Philippe (1693) :

Waiting for a game with more of them. 🙂

The common locations for magazines was below the waterline on the Orlop deck, logically close to the centre of the ship so that all cannons could be served in a similar time-frame.  There may have been exceptions of course, and, it was not uncommon for powder bags to kept close to the guns for immediate use, (just as small caliber ammunition would be stored on deck in lockers as ready-use until rounds arrived from the 4 or 5 inch magazines). 

Later turreted ships would find the Cordite and shell rooms beneath the Barbettes below the waterline for easy flooding in the event of fire, The X turret magazine aboard Hood actually went far enough forward as to have been almost under the Captains day cabin and the Admiral's quarters and was the Magazine that exploded first,  examination of the wreck suggests that the resulting fire went forward below decks without setting off Y magazine (which was further aft) venting above decks forward of the Mainmast where the explosion appeared to take place from the  Prince of Wales viewpoint.

True magazine explosions were very uncommon in the Napoleonic era, the best known example being the French 1st rate L'Orient at the Battle of the Nile,  while the fire aboard L'Orient started aft, and low down in the hull, British gunfire spread the fire both forward and to the upper decks, the initial fire may well have been kept under control and away from the magazine were the fire not targeted by British ships. 

The introduction of Cordite, which tended to destabilize over time,  and, required a temperature controlled environment meant a severe rise in magazine detonations even when not in action like HMS Vanguard in 1917, It is quite possible  that USS Maine may also have been due to a coal bunker fire setting off a powder magazine, like Bretagne the Maine's loss was controversial, and what actually happened in Havana may never be truly resolved.  The French Battleship Bretagne, IJNS Yamato, USS Arizona, HMS Barham  and HMS Hood are all well known, documented,  magazine explosions due to combat as were the British Battle-cruisers at Jutland. The Loss of the Bretagne was particularly controversial, since her loss at Oran, caused by Force H, a British Battle Squadron, created a great deal of bad feeling between France and Great Britain, ironically HMS Hood, which was Admiral Somerville's flagship at Oran, shared her fate less than a year later near the Denmark Straits.  Many lesser known ships also suffered the same fate.

Overall it does appear that magazine protection and ammunition handling  procedures were better in 18th and most of the 19th century than they were in 20th century before the introduction of Cordite in 1889 as the shell propellant of choice.
