View Full Version : [WIP] Big diesel powered Merchant
04-25-2008, 01:46 PM
MadMax´s shipyard got an very modern Diesel powered Vessel under construction.
This ship is based on my NKGHAN Vessel and it is made for SH3 and you can also use this vessel in SH4 !
When iam ready with this unit you can chose between 2 Versions.
1.) SH3 Version
2,) SH4 Version
Here some pictures from the SH4 Version :
I hope i can release this ship in a few days !

Superb ship Maddie, I like the way you modeled/positionned the funnel, gives the ship a "mean" look :) Is that only for the aesthetics or is it based on some real ship ?
Hi, thanx for compliments !
This ship is not realy an modell of any explecit Unit but an modell of some units which have nearly this design !
Here an picture of an smaler vessel with nearly this funneldesign :

Do it like real Kaleuns did! :D
Looking at the pictures (And specifically at the cranes) I see 4 cargo bays. Make it an average 1500 GRT per bay, plus some extra 1000-1500 tons for superstructures and machinery, that is around 7000-7500 tons.
7500/53 (Factor for average ship proportions on cargo merchants) that is 141 metres length.
Average heigth per deck = 18 metres till top of superstructure, and some 35 to the top of the masts.
My educated guess for this ship would be:
140 metres length
35 metres mast
Around 15-18 knots top speed
Am I much off the mark, Max?? :hmm:

If it's a "real guess" it's impressive Hitman !
Yes it is for real :D I just did what real Kaleuns did :yep:, although having experience as sailor (Like they had) and seeing a real ship of course would help refining the data. I suspected it would be around 140-150 metres long, the huge simplification of the formula I use for the "53" divider is of course not perfect, but seems close enough for a "fixed wire" speed measurement :D -again as it was done in real life-
EDIT: Oh and I forgot to add: The ship shown in the real picture by AOTD_MadMax is much smaller. I count only three cargo bays, so again the formula would be 1500x2 + approx 1000 = 4000
4000/53= Roughly 75 metres
My guess for the ship in the pic would be then:
Bridge= 10 metres
Mast= 30 metres
75 metres length

i have reworked the ship a bit and the time for release is comming nearer.
I have changed the draft and the weapons and some small fixes.
The only thing that have to be tested is dammage-modell.
Three torpedos must bring this ship down.
Here some mesures :
Tonns : 7600
Lenght : 155
Draft : 7,5
Mast : 34
New Pictures :
I think with the lower draft this vessel looks better !

Needs a repaint now to lower the water line
Nice work as ever Maddy
Looking forward to release

More tons for everyone! :up:
BTW, nice ship; waiting for final version!
