What if??
« on: May 04, 2012, 18:52:20 »

Hey was wondering...what if ship sim develops a game with concept ships that were never made into production like the Titanic II or long forgotten ships like the Britannic I and II? Im a big titanic fan and would love to now how it would be to maneuver a diesel-electric ship (Titanic II).  Also to have to privilege to walk around in the cabins to see the interior of the ship like the cabins and to grab that feel of how it would be like being inside the ship...care to comment anyone?

That bulbous bow seems very low down to be effective...

well its just a sketch... remember, a sketch is just to grasp an idea of how the ship might just look, once the ship is built, some adjustments might have to be done for the better driving and handling of the ship just like a car or truck, not just that but remember that even though titanic might be the largest, she sits lower than any other ships now because you can compare other ships like floating  buildings so they need a bigger bulbous bow to add up with the structure of the ship whereas titanic's structure is much simpler and doesnt need an oversized bulbous bow to add up with the structure.  it just all depends with the personal eye view of the ship once you see it eye to eye and while you build her.

I love how the sketch emphasises such things as the "enlarged rudder" and the "high efficiency screws". Is that so the titanic 2 can steer out of the way of an iceburg and stop sooner?  :doh:
That bulb looks more like something you'd see on a warship - they normally hold sonar and other anti-submarine sensors.

Nice picture, many thanks!

Titanic II...Probably we´ll see it in some years:

Palmer plots Titanic order

A replica of the Titanic could be sailing the Atlantic by 2016 if a plan by an Australian billionaire comes to fruition.

Clive Palmer has signed an initial agreement with China’s CSC Jinling shipyard to build a modern version of the liner that sank off Newfoundland 100 years ago this month.


He wants to sail Titanic II from England to New York accompanied by the Chinese navy as its maiden voyage.

The vessel will be part of a planned fleet of luxury cruiseships built in Nanjing, he said. He has not revealed a cost.

The 58-year-old mining, property and football tycoon added: “It will be every bit as luxurious as the original Titanic, but of course it will have state-of-the-art twenty-first century technology and the latest navigation and safety systems.”

White Star Line’s original ship was just under 270 metres long.

Palmer’s version will have the same dimensions, with 840 rooms on nine decks as well as gymnasiums, swimming pools, libraries and restaurants, he said.

He has brought in a historical research team to start design work. An exhibition room showcasing Queensland will replace the original’s coal boilers.

For the venture, Palmer has set up Blue Star Line as a wholly-owned subsidiary of his Mineralogy company.

The magnate has a fortune of AUD 5.05bn ($5.3bn) and is Australia’s fifth-richest person.

He said the plans would help China become a major player in the cruiseship market.
