That might even be cool to do for every community or member funded shipwreck, to distinguish them from the normal wrecks?
Yes right, that gives each site a special touch somehow :)
I think that somewhere on the wreck there should be some reference that Davy Jones was NOT the last captain but that it was, in fact, Cpt. Tornado that last sailed the ship ( or perhaps Poseidon Pat ) :)
Current status: working 2-10 really s*#k ^_^
Cool idea, I whould like that having somewhere a reference to the wreck founder :)
a wreck founder would be a great idea. Can someone loan me $1500. ill pay you back....someday
This is going to be kick-ass. Great idea, Pat.
Pat, you mention something about pipe organ music. What do you think of this for the captains quarters?
Oh man that looks great, yup kind of that whould be realy nice :)
As you mentioned the light coming into the captains quarters, a small chest with gold and silver scattered on the floor or captains table. with light beams reflecting from the shiny metal.
Yup that seems pretty cool :)
Sounds like a good idea.
Or how about the gold scattered about like this scene from the movie "the Goonies"
Great idea, Brony. Did not even think of that until you posted the image. :)
Yea, I remember about it because it was on a few nights ago. Plus it's one of my fav movies.
Good idea Brony, I agree to a decent amount of gold and treasure in the Captains Quarter, also I whould like to see a lot of it in the hold of the ship :)
Hey guys! an update ^^ as some of you may have seen in our devblog, last week I have been working on blocking out the shapes for the flying dutchman. This model was mainly to experiment with the shapes and sizes. Today I restarted from scratch and used the old ship as reference. I wanted to create the ships hull and inside compartments as well as some assets. Eventually I realised I made some huge mistakes working on the inside compartments, I'll have to rework them.
Thank you Sieb that's nice showing the first steps of it also in devblog, exciting :)
I did some other modeling with Cinema 4D some time ago, what software are you guys using?
Thanks for these updates Sieb, these keep me excited for this project!
I agree.... exciting stuff.
To save costs, the octopus could be made inanimate for the most part, guarding a treasure chest or davy jones' heart. So only a few limbs and his head move around, but he sits still all the time.
Somehow that's what I was thinking of too, when becoming available, that the octopus will be guarding some treasures somewhere in the hold of the ship.
Of course a swimming version whould be cool ;)
I've missed this completly.
Thanks for this wreck and site Pat Tornado! And to make it the Dutchman, wow! Heavy stuff right there.
I don't know if it's been talked about before (here or other topics) but it would be so cool if we had a day/night cycle. Just imagine how it would be to dive that wreck (and the others!) first in daytime and then at night. Or even better, see how the light fade out and turn it to a night dive. The suggestion about organ*?* music and ghosts would really come to life then. Creepy stuff! :D
I follow no path in life. I walk straight and leave a trail for others to follow.
Hey that's a real cool idea having a sun crossing the sky above the diving spots, causing change of sets of color and shadow on the same spot, I hope, like Wusker mentioned, that may be a generell feature coming up for all the near surface sites :)
At each diving session you may set a time when you wanne dive, so every different time of day can be a different optical experience.
Spot on!! *thumbs up*
I don't think day/night options will be here yet but they have alluded they are coming. Once they do we should be able to switch it on all maps, which would be awesome!
Oh and the Octopus could grab you and if it did you would die in the game and your skeleton would lie on the ground next to it and all your dabloons and pearls would be there too and we would have to start completely over at 0 XP.....Well what do you all think ;)
Funny idea, I'm not sure if the devs wanne have let you die in the game, not to mention that I think no one really wanne die and reset his account just for the fun picture after leveling up for some time ;)
Maybe you can make a mission where you have to pass the grabling Octopus, if he catch you, to release you may loose your dublons picked up during that session and have to redo.
Or that you have to pass him to get to the treassure room with some more dublons and return safe without beeing catched.
Thank you Sieb , Keep it up.
I think they could definitely make the flyIng Dutchman a night dive, the Bismarck is a night dive pretty much.
I'm sorry but I whould like to have it with daylight effects, sunrays underwater.
A night dive can be an additional option but I prefer daylight.
Nice to see your creativity, I think the idea is good, the original stern ornaments look indeed pretty complex, that's a nice alternative, please go on! :)
Ok maybe the arms should not be that long I think.
can you make it grab and kill SGT's character in game (and everyone else ranked above me) so he resets to 0? If so I Love it! ;)
Not just the ship, but the flora, fauna, and the map must set it apart from the Brony site. Awesome idea though its all up to Pat.
Quick, to the decompression chamber. I think you surfaced too fast because you are speaking crazy talk :P
Sieb is that a no on the Octopuss killing all the other members ranked above me, and resetting them all to 0 XP?
I'm confident that this site will become a real nice one, there are a lot of good ideas on list to discuss to make it happen ;)
Sieb, could you animate one of the wooden legs of the octopus as if it was partly broken and the ocean current was swaying it back and forth!
If it's ok with Pat , I think it would be cool to have something moving around!
Yes why not, a bit animation whould be nice :)
Sorry for this spam post but found this and thought it was funny
But I found this for an idea for the interior of the ship for you to consider and think about.
Thank you for the interior picture Brony, it has some nice details for inspiration.
I don't know how much details can be possible for interior so I whould like to know what Sieb suggest from the designers view to show us the limits.
Glad you like the idea of animating part of the octopus ,I think it would be cool to see something moving around
when your near it.
