Hi, I want to show you the models that I build for a naval PC simulation, which I develop as a personal project. The simulation called "The Weather Gage" is set during the French Revolutionary Wars & Napoleonic Wars and it's possible to command in real time different ship models. I'll start with one of my favorite models with better progress, the 9pdr sixth-rate frigate based on the plans of the HMS Surprise (formerly French corvette Unité) Other models which are already functional in the simulation (which I can show in following posts): - Armed cutter based on the Cutter Alert - 18-gun brig based on the HMS Grasshoper (Cruizer Class) - later dutch "Irene" - 18pdr 5th-rate frigate based on the Venus (Hebe Class) - 74-gun ship of the line based on the Pompee (Temeraire Class) - Lugger based on the Le Courer - Small merchant schooner based on the schooner for Port Jackson - Tartane It would be great to get some feedback about the overall appearance of the models. I try to get a good overall appearance as I cannot invest too much time in small details. For example the rigging is in some cases difficult to model to be look like functional i.e. be animated. Also I have to distribute my time between the modelling & animations of the ships (and other elements like cannons, buildings, terrain) and gameplay development (e.g. AI, physical simulation, sound, …) For a better impression about the simulation in action: The robots are of course still placeholders for the real crew which should follow some time later Still not too good at modelling crew :S Thanks in advance for your comments!
