A little bit off topic because this car ferry is already in SS08 but it has a new paint job. I took these pictures of the Red Osprey this morning.

Regards, Dave



Red Osprey? It should have been renamed Big Bird! (from Sesame Street) LOL  ;D

As i have said in another Topic, i would like to see two classic Norwegian ferries, which in my opinion is one of the most beautiful ferries ever made, the MF "Veøy" and MF "Bolsøy". Both ferries are owned by Fjord1 MRF and is very well maintained, as they are used on the tourist route in the Geiranger fjord in the summer.

Video of "Bolsøy" is here, where it runs in the summer season in the Geiranger fjord along with "Veøy". The resot of then year, those ferries are laid up.

here are some pictures of "Veøy"

Now, i don't expect that those ferries will be made for shipsim, but at least i can hope :)

That being said, i would love to have another ferry than the Red Eagle. Red Eagle's control system is a bit confusing to be honest. Another ferry with lever control system for engine RPM and propeller pitch would be nice, instead of those wheels.

I Would Like To See Seafrance Berlioz. It operates the Dover-Calais route.

Definetly, I saw her sister Rodin in Dover back in March



They would be great ships to sail between Dover and Calais in ShipSim.

I'm still hoping to get a Cross Channel ferry into SS,  ;D

Would Love one of the Norfolk Line Trio:



Or maybe Pride of Dover/Calais, with the bow rudder for moving astern...



Also, maybe a large car carrier...



Finnjet would be a nice addition as well...

No, sadly not.

I had a look at tug, but the camera focused on the chain link fence rather then the tug.  :-[ It looks to end with -on 6, It was taken in Zeebrugge also, not sure where the Bugsier works..

Bugsier vessels are German, they work in places like Hamburg.

I didn´t read the whole topic, but I saw that one turkish guy showed his country´s scrap metal. I dont´t want to see this scrap metal in SS.

SS already have one car ferry Red Eagle. Another one is not necessary. In SS there should be different types of ships, not many ships of the same type.

I propose some my country´s ferrys.
