Hi everyone!

Im glad to release my not-so-new unit: HMS \ HMT Queen Mary

This replace the original one released in 2008.

New features (many taken from SH5's huge european liner) includes reworked funnels, masts, command deck, new lifeboats, improved 3d stairs, 3d oblos\windows, reworked hull, with also different propeller position and reproportioned rudder, anchor chains, more details ecc ecc ecc..

Also, as a collaboration with Stefan Thimme, a totally new damage profile, improved .sim file and improved .sil.

Thanks to author of the original model, UBOAT234

Ben fatto VonDos :up:

I have just a minor remark: if you look closely at your model's bow and compare it with pictures of the real Queen Mary, you will surely notice that the prow was sharper in reality than it looks in your model. If you want. you can correct this little inaccuracy by splitting the edges composing ship's prow in your model :yep:

Yeah, that's right, and also the angle with the sea was greater :

Hi!
I'm going at work now, this evening i'll work a little again on this.
I'm also reducing a little the draft of this model, hull ander water appear to be a little too big, looking again at blueprints...

@VonDos

The drawing posted by Kendras brings another small issue to our attenction. Apparently, anchors were accomodated in a recess of the hull in their rest position, but these recesses are hardly noticeable in your model.
Once again, edge-splitting their borders, would make them more obvious :salute:

Something like this?

Exactly, but the anchor slot should look darker than the rest, because of shadows. Is its UV projection overlapping other areas of the hull? If it is not, you can draw those shadows directly on the texture or, even better, if you send me the mesh of the bow section and the texture, I can bake an ambient occlusion map for that section, and blend it with the diffuse texture :yep:
