As you've probably seen in the recent devlog
, we're removing the larger rates from the game. Now, while this thread isn't going to go into the specifics on that, this change does impact you, our shipwright community.
One of the things that I'd like to promote is new and existing makers to stick somewhere in the 30-45 gun range when picking their models.
This doesn't mean that players can't look for smaller ship sizes, quite the opposite, yet you'll make the likes of lum jump for joy when he sees that the shipwright community are working on unique models within that range.
With that in mind, I've edited a master list of NMM plans that KrisWood compiled for our use internally now for your viewing. All of these are available from the NMM provided you give them the specific details that are in the sheet or you can get some of them from other sources, to which some Kris highlighted in comments.
So that's that. Apart from current works in progress from various players, any new projects are advised to follow the information here if they wish to see their ship model enter game anytime soon
If you wish to ask a question specific to this change in model design focus, then feel free to reply below and I'll answer as best I can. As I said above, do not comment on the devlog announced change in here, as we already have a thread
Thanks for understanding and happy modelling!
