Red Funnel
« on: May 02, 2007, 17:13:57 »

We all know about Red Jet 4, and possibly seen the pics, i'm amazed at the detail upon..
i havn't trawled through all the forums.. but i look up at the banner at the top of the page ^^ and under the golden gate bridge we see sailing a P&O Ferry and what looks like 2 red funnel Ferries..
and to be really picky the one on the left looks like the Red Eagle

It would be nice if there were some pictures for us to see . . . so that the rest of us could share our thoughts on this.

Greetings,
You will be not able to go around the Isle of Wight,it's because modelling takes very much time,if you want to do it good.
Later maybe in future editions,vstep is able to connect a new part of the island to this part.

So let me get this right. Cowes and Ryde have been modelled so does that mean that the rest of the island will be just trees? And the odd building. The good thing is that Cowes is where Red funnel docks so it would be great to do the real ferry route. I'm personally looking forward to Southampton the most ;D ;D

Really looking forward to this! I've always wanted to recreate that route.

Just wondering: how are you going to make the Red Eagle double-ended? In terms of manouvring?
I presume it will be equipped with a propeller in each end, as the original?

Will it be some docks for the ferry? So it looks like a ferry goes there, not just a straight dock with no roads.

from the screenshots of Cowes posted on this site it doesnt look as if there are detailed docks.

I could be wrong though - Does anybody else know?

It would be best if you had a route to go after, and that the docks really looked like ferry docks. So I can go forth and backward between two places, like most of the ferries. I like ferries very much, and are working on one myself.

I think it would be cool if you could operate the loading doors/ramps and see an animation of cars and people come and go. I think it would give a nice break between trips as well as add realism to the game.

I totally agree, but don't think that will come at first, but it should be a well done dock, so that you don't lay into a container dock for example.

Ugh - Yes, that is true. It should be a dock of some relation to the vessel. At least with cars and people waiting, eh?  ;)

Yes, it should be so that the ferry fits in the dock, and not that it looks like it's going to pick up cars from the side and so on.

It may have Voith-Schneiders, but in order to be double-ended, there must be some kind of propulsion at both ends, and that was what I was wondering about; will they make the ferry so that she operates like a double-ended ferry?
