    Eventually, yes. We have some simple models to try out in the near future but they are still pretty low priority at this point.

    That sun flare effect is really quite cool mate, and that water is really looking fantastic! I absolutely love the customizable sails too! :onya

    2 Ships collided and were stuck when the bowsprit of one got fouled in the mizzen mast of the other. A close quarters brawl ensued with one ship sunk and the other heavily damaged.

    @Captain Murphy, you might want to start putting some of these images in spoilers. There's a lot of strain on this page when trying to load so many images at once. :wp

    Uploading them to the forum and using thumbnails would work too mate. Thumbnails from imagur would work as well, but would require more clicks.

    Really looking fantastic, btw, nice work! :onya

    Another dose of screens this month. We are refining some code and refactoring quite a bit of it so that it performs better with more ships. Right now the goal is 16 ships at 60fps on my old 660gtx at full graphics, so that way it can be turned down a bit and work on some older machines.

    A minor note on the French flag:

    The screenshots show the modern French ensign with blue, white and red in unequal proportions - in reality they are proportioned 30:33:37. The idea is to counter the effect of the trailing edge appearing shortened as the flag flutters in the wind. But these proportions were only adopted in 1853. In Napoleonic times the flag would have had the colours in equal proportions.

    See:
    French ensigns - Wikipedia
    Flags of the World - France

    Thanks for the info!


    We now have a system of damage decals that we are testing in v0.3.x that is currently up on Itch.io if you want to play it!

    Looks very action-packed there, @Captain Murphy! :onya

    Why is that ship in the last screenshot still floating? She looks like a sieve!

    And the particle effect for the impact in the centre of the second to last image for some reason looks to me like it is an impact on ground instead of splashing water.
    But that might just be me....

    @Pieter Boelen It is a sieve, but it is an 'above the water line' one at that point and downflooding hasn't taken hold yet. You also might notice that the debris particles are rocks and wood as well. I am building all new particles and going to use a new pooler to manage them all, but for now I am sharing a lot of them to test how well the pooler works.
    You are correct on the particle. It is the same 'dust' particle that is used for ground hits, we just haven't gotten around to tinting the base texture to match water yet.
