Generic 2500teu feeder container ship

This will be the largest vessel I have undertaken to date, I could not have better sources to work from so there`s no excuses! I have to keep the details reasonable though as she will be gaming ready.

Where do you get your blueprints?

Looking awesome, can you show mesh with lines and how you achieved the organic hull shape?

This is the most difficult part of the process! especially with modern ships where the hull shape is a close guarded secret between companies, in this case a friend of mine knew an office aboard this vessel that had access to the shipyards plans

Ive done things slightly differently here, I drew the lines from the plan and then chose how much detail I wanted for the mesh by drawing the hull point by point manually, usually I just draw the ribs and use curviloft to join them, or if I want clean topolgy I would draw a subdiv mesh in blender, but this usually ends with far to high poly

Her Liebherr Fcc 280 45t cranes are in, they are just blocked out at the moment, they will still be getting plenty details, along with some hydraulic lines. Her macgregor stackable hatches are on, hatch guides and bearing pads are in along with the cell guides. Container foundations are marked and spreader supports are on, cleats will come next along with coaming stays, once im happy with her cargo deck gear ill move on to the rest of the hull

More decals added, these might look tiny but they are to scale, and my attempt at the prop

Thanks! I wish I was doing this full time! then I could go at a much quicker pace

Focusing on the superstructure for now to get it balanced with the rest before moving on to the last final detail pass

Following your work with interest, I assume you specialise in sea vessels? Is you background something nautical?

Thanks guys, Yes ocean going vessels have always captivated me, the largest purpose built moving objects mankind has ever made for the harshest wearing environment, sets the stage for endless entertainment :P

Winches, chocks and fairleads fitted, the anchor chain will need special attention, the current modeled version is far to poly heavy to be used in game

Thanks Bryan, but a stomach bug caught up to me forcing me to rest for 2 days! good time to spend collecting reference though :-P

Deck level gangway details complete, small details added here and there, next the foredeck needs its final touches, then I think the superstructure mast needs attention

Foredeck & mast complete, liferaft and navlights will be done later when I do all the loose fittings, along with the anchors. Also made my first container, the textures are light balanced as they are rendered from a model so that I have control of the white balance and perspective

Heres a 4k Overview

Messing about with lights, will only be able to add a simple mesh light though for the lenses, no fancy cutting of the mesh for effects for me, going to try the alpha gradient trick but im not holding my hopes up that it will work

Bridge exterior is complete, this is where I expect the ships master to spend most of his/her time, so ive hopefully added enough detail here to satisfy
