Selsey I
« on: January 16, 2010, 14:55:32 »

Yay! A sailing ship.

As you may well of seen the new free ship in the shipyard. :)
I have to say, I've been sailing around padstow and in high waves and it's challenging to handle with is awesome.
The model (before you complain) is converted from AI and that is why it's not Ultra High Quality.

The dynamics of it are great, feels like the real thing (I drove one at norfolk once).
There is a new display on the controls I don't recognise but It looks to be realistic. :P (I think it's a compas)
I love the little white light on the top  :lol:

I like the sight seeing mission in the french place (I can't spell marliels or whatever)

Overall it's a great pack. Just like the Selsey II.

Very Nice :)

Hi Ozy783.

Glad you like it.

The new display is a wind direction indicator. It is supposed to show the wind heading relative to your vessel, allowing for the speed and direction you are travelling. It is a dial that was already available in the "toolkit", but not used on many other vessels. Think of it as being a bit like a weather vane.

I tried to make this sailing boat as similar as I could to the many real ones I have been out in over the years. Almost every time I get into one, the wind drops and we end up using the engine! Mind you, every time I go out in my power boat, the wind picks up...

The original AI vessel was very low quality, as it was only intended to be seen from a distance. I did everything it is possible to do to remove the fuzziness, The end result is as good as it is possible to be, given the limitations of the model and the simulator processes.

I have to say that some of the testers were unsure if they would like a sailing vessel, but all of them came back to say that this one is fun. And that's what it is all about. No claims to great accuracy, this one is just for fun.  :2thumbs:

Thank You very much, Terry.
Just a little warning to all players:
Don't try to go with the Selsey I  under the Erasmus Bridge during High Tide (whenever that is in game) She would not fit. See attachment

I would like to show my appreciation also for the recent add-on. The SELSEY I sailing boat is very nice and I've really enjoyed playing it. Something different and unique as well.

Thanks very much!  :2thumbs: :2thumbs: :2thumbs:

It's because in the game, it has a built-in set of ship categories. There isn't one for sailing vessles, so it defaults to a tug. Vstep never intended to have sailing boats as playable vessels, of course.

So, what next? Playable buoys? Playable ramps? Probably not...  :evil:

 :lol: ;D ;D ;D :lol:
In fact I think that means I WILL try it!  :lol:
As I have said in that re-skin thread somewhere ( :lol:) thanks for this great effort. Only cirism is the controls and helm - from the picture(!) I've seen of the helm view, you are inside some sort of box shape cut into the hull  ??? and the throttle appears to be underneath/behind the wheel's "arms".
Otherwise, brilliant work. Bloomin' fantastic! I hope that vessels such as this are included in SSE. Or perhaps an expansion, since we've had one expansion for every SS game in the past  ;D It's good to be able to sail something like this in an accurate real world environment which includes ships many, many times bigger than it that you could skipper as well! That would mean a perfect all round maritime simulation! (bar submarines, but I don't suppose you see many civvie subs do you  :lol:)
The light on the top of the mast is called the Masthead Light I believe, if such a thing exists  :lol: Either that or the Steaming Light.
I can't believe it! My dad has a Moody 30 from the 70s in Dover, called the Sulac. We go out on it whenever we're down there (bar check overs) and I can't remember something as simple as lights! :doh:
Now, does a red traffic light mean go, or amber?  :doh:

Hi Jammydodger.

The type of light on this one is known as a "combined masthead unit". According to shipping regulations :

Sailboats 7 to 20 metres or more in length must show:

  • Combined lantern, that is at or near the top of the mast and incorporates sidelights and stern light, or
  • Separate sidelights and stern light.

So this one obeys the first option.

For the controls, I was limited as to where and how I could fit anything. The hatchway was the only available place. In the original model, I think it was supposed to look like an entrance to a galley area. But the vessel is far too small for that, so I changed it to be just a cut-away. And then I fitted the controls in.

It is actually almost identical to a sailing boat at Chichester Marina in the jetty opposite where I keep my power boat. The owner of the sailing boat has his controls laid out in exactly that way.

@Terry: My dad's boat is 30ft.
He has a steaming light, masthead light, a stern light, and port/starboard lights (on the bow :doh:).

I need to sey too that it's a good ship! It's very good and it's free, every free add-on is a perfect thing  ;D

IT WOULD BE SO GREAT TO SEE THE SS ROTTERDAM FROM AI TO A PLAYABL VESSLE! IT'S A VERY COOL SHIP!

Good bye!
