My latest sailing ship, a small one this time, created in the framework of an idea I had not so long ago for a rocky coastal area in an outlying part of the world. Unlike most of my previous ships, which were rather well-kept and would no doubt have made their captains proud, my aim with this one was to give it a weathered, exposed to the elements look to befit the environment where it's found.
Various other traits also apply. First of all, this is actually a set of prefabs: closed hull or open hull with accessible interior, moored at a harbour or sailing on the ocean, and also an example interior furnishing. All prefabs are fully mapped, so they have nodrawsolid, monsterclip, noshadows settings and all the rest. As usual there's also a 1:50 scale model, either with sails fully open or rolled up.
Regarding the naming: in that era ships were named after their arrangement of sails. The sail plan of this ship has many things in common with that of a ketch, but you could get away with calling it most any other name as well. Brig, sloop, schooner, cutter, barque would be suitable for small ships.
The ships of TDM, from top left by row: Airship (Pandora's Box), Carack (One Step Too Far), Caravel, Ketch, Galleon (No Honour Among Thieves, Accountant 2 & more), Steam Schooner (Down by the Riverside), Boat1, Boat2, Invernesse (Down by the Riverside), Sloop Specs: Download In the first post of this thread
This can be installed and started like a regular mission for those who'd like to take a look ingame. If you'd like to use it in your own map it's best to use the prefabs, not the .map.
