Ship Plans and Resources.


Recommended Posts

It was mentioned briefly earlier but I would really like to see the HMS Mordaunt developed at some point. It's an absolutely beautiful ship but the few models we've seen in other games never do the ship justice. I would really like to see the developers here make a proper version.

well since we have no second rate at the moment and no French SoL in particular i sugest:

the 80gun French Duc de Bourgogne.

 

sadly i cant find orgininal planes for her but there exist the 1821 HMS Ganges wich is based on her 1780 rifit launched in India

i see if i can ask in the french forum maybe there exist some planes in some french museum

I know that I have written it in other threads however I would be truly interested in seeing HMS Barfleur (1768) in this game. Alas I am not particularly adept at building ships for games. However I would possibly be willing to make a donation towards its existence in this game.

 

 

 

Alas I have been unable to find any ship plans, only some paintings.

Le commerce de Marseille - what a beautiful name

 

By the way.. What is the best known and most famous french ship? Like British Victory or US Constitution or spanish galeons. 

The one that says France - just by looking at it. (1680-1820 period preferred)

 

I would go as far as saying that this could be 2 warships. L'Orient was incredibly famous both for being one of the largest warships in the French fleet and due to her destruction. Another famous French warship was the Bretagne that was renamed Revolutionnaire at the outbreak of the French Revolution. Bretagne/Revolutionnaire carried 110 guns.

Ship looks nice, hopefully the devs have not started working on a 2nd rate yet. Anyway I found some blueprints.

 

Would the sister ship be ok?

The russian wiki has the Barfleur blueprint complete with interior

I could not find any deck plans :(

 

edit: Of course someone beat me to it in quick time...

nah i had the rest of the hullshape missing you dont want to know where i got the picture from:D

 

any sailplans by the way?

 

Nah not even the place where the source of all plans are located D:

 

Btw good news I'm guessing this is the go to website for ship plans? Heres the various drawings for barfleur.

 

http://collections.rmg.co.uk/collections.html#!csearch;searchTerm=barfleur

 

You'll also find the other blueprints for the ships of the same class at that site. Prince George and Princess Royal are the most common.

 

Also some nice artwork of the princess royal: http://modelshipworld.com/uploads/monthly_01_2014/post-2745-0-04590000-1389063215.jpg

You two have made my day. I shall endeavour to help out in any way that I can to get this implemented. Thank you for sifting through. She is quite frankly one of my favourite warships of all time and was one of the most battle tested warships of the era.

 

I have yet to find a sail plan although will keep searching. The only thing that I have seen with her sails is her engagement with the Ville de Paris at the Battle of the Saintes. Alas it is from the famous painting which does not shed too much light on it.

This is another painting. Maybe the other one in my last post is good enough. I've look around but I think you might have a better chance looking for some books that depict drawings of what the ships might have looked like.

How high are the standards for model accuracy? :huh:

 

Theres also painting of the youngest sister ship formidable:

The picture that I had seen was this one where she is in mid battle. You can see part of the foremast, but the mainmast and mizzen seem to be most apparent. As the Formidable is the sister ship would her sail plan have been imposed upon the Barfleur. I shall look through the books that I have with regards to the ships, may have a sailplan somewhere

I think I read somewhere the HMS Princess Royal and HMS Barfleur were the closest in design. So perhaps the drawing here might be the best. http://modelshipworl...-1389063215.jpg

 

I couldn't find much else, sorry I cant contribute more.

You have already done a fantastic job. If the plans for the Barfleur's hull were used along with the sail plan of the Princess Royal I would be happy. I have a few contacts in Naval Architecture so I'm hoping that someone will get back to me on the matter however I do believe that if the hull is taken from one the sail plan from the other would be an almost identical fit.

Fourth rates you can have such ships as HMS Lion, HMS Leander, HMS Agamemnon (of which there are substantial plans) also HMS Glatton is also an interesting fourth rate. HMS Glatton was virtually a converted indiaman however had carronades as her entire arsenal. Captained by William Bligh at the Battle of Copenhagen it is certainly an individualistic ship.
